As promised here’s your “official” Arsenal v. Birmingham discussion thread. Post your reactions, thoughts, joy, random hatred, and proposals of marriage below. For my part I’ll be down at Doyle’s and I’ll be twitting gems of wisdom, follow me over at twitter if that’s your bag, baby.
No team news yet but if something comes up before I leave for the pub I’ll post it. In the mean time, I’m just sitting here watching Villa v. Chelsea and reading about Andrei Arshavin. He really is a funny dude, if you have a few moments you should read that interview. My favorite quote?
There are a lot of crazy things here. What does ‘British food’ mean? I heard about fish and chips but I do not eat it. I heard about ales! Ales! A special drink like beer but without gas! I’ve not tried it. And what is porridge? At home, I eat soups and Russian salads.
Poor fella doesn’t know what an Ale is, I’d be happy to be Arshavin’s Ale Ambassador. We’ll start with a Courage Best Bitter somewhere near Emirates and finish with, oh, a Young’s Special at the Founder’s Arms. Just pick up the tab for the flight Andrei, and get me some match tickets, and I’d be happy to show you the ales of London!
Anyway, got to feed the baby and get ready for the match. If you’re in town, see you down at Doyle’s. But wherever you are UP THE ARSE!
