I have finally found a good reason to watch International Football; to root for any team playing against France. If France don’t qualify for the World Cup, since Arsenal is mostly French players, then Arsenal players will be well rested all year and all Summer. Moreover, losing out on such a prestigeuos torunament will make our French players extremely hungry, and we will eat the Premier League and Champions League alive.
Something like that, I think you get the point.
France looks pretty much a lock for a play-off match to qualify for the World Cup. However, if Serbia beats Romania, then Serbia will qualify and force French Arsenal to potentially win out in order to even reach the play-offs. French Arsenal plays Faroe Islands on Saturday and while I seriously doubt that the FI will put up much of a fight, we can hope, right? After all, if they lose against FI and Austria, they could finish 3rd and not even make the play-offs! That’s the dream, Kickers!
Doyle’s is showing a ton of matches this weekend, if you’re in town, head down there and root for the minnows.
Arsenal Boast Two of the Richest on the Rich List
Though Stan Kroenke’s billions have shrunk by a few millions, he’s managed to move up the rich list to number 5 at just a hair over £2bn. Also, if Stan has any hairs that he’d like to give away, I’d love them! Stan’s wealth, it should be noted does not include his wife’s money, she is actually richer than he is at £2.5bn.
Meanwhile, Alisher Usmanov has dropped two places to 9th place, marking the first time in his life that anything near or on him ever shrunk.
I hope this sheds some light on which of our two rich guys is actually richest.
Arsenal to sign Tarzan, Guiseppi, and Pinocchio.
I don’t know what to think of the popcockery that is transfer news in October. Let’s be real, the window was barely closed before the press were talking about who Arsenal were tracking to buy in January and that trend has only grown stronger. Every international break is basically a chance for some poor slob at a newspaper to put out an article linking Arsenal to such and such.
First, I don’t want Puyols. His defensive style reminds me of Silvestre, he’s a bit desperate, pretty much always. Arsenal’s youngsters need someone super confident, someone who is simply solid at all times, someone like Thomas Vermaelen.
Second, I don’t know shit about the Bari center backs except that they have only conceded a very few goals and both of these guys are young and tall (Ranocchia is 6’5″ or 1.95m or 4.27 cubits!) and that if we get both players the Arsenal store better stock up on the letter “C!”.
I’ve watched a lot of Serie A this year and still haven’t seen these guys play, so if anyone has insider info on the team and these two players, please, post it below.
Pompey Has The Grim
The Undertaker has returned to Pompey, which is good because dead things should be buried.
Liam Brady to Talk to Arsenal
I really can’t tell what all the fuss is about. Liam Brady gave a quote which says that he’s going to talk to Arsenal. Ok. I don’t know why anything would change, he’s already doing both jobs (assistant at RoI and running the Arsenal Academy) so unless he wants out of one or the other then I can’t see what the controversy is. Do you?
You still here? Fine, click on something if you must, start an argument if you like, I’m going to work.
