Not much going on at Arsenal since our injury time win at Hull, that also ended the managerial career of Philomena Brown. To be fair to him, he did provide us with some comical moments that made for good television. With no midweek game, it gives the players time to rest and recover ahead of the game against West Ham. I saw them play against Chelsea and for 45 minutes I felt they could at least get a point but sadly they capitulated in the second half. If Chelsea put 4 past West Ham we should be looking to surpass that figure as goal difference is looking likely to play a huge factor in this title race.
In birthday news, Theo Walcott turns 21 today but celebrated over the weekend with a couple teammates and Gareth Bale. I can’t seem to get it out of my head but Gareth Bale does look a lot like Donkey Kong.
In Andrey Arshavin news, it’s being reported he was involved in a little fender bender earlier this morning, he wasn’t injured in the crash but his car was slightly damaged. For those of you who don’t know, Andrey has a fashion degree and blogs regularly on his website. If you haven’t seen it yet, please do this guy is a dandy, I took the liberty of re-posting some of the questions fans had sent to him.
Good afternoon, A gypsum hippopotamus in Zenit uniform (almost in human size) has been installed in the playground near our house today. Can I tell my kid that its name is Andrey? In your honor?
Arshavin: Hippo? If it pleases your child, then feel free to do this, although I thought I was way slimmer then a hippo. :)))
The question is – do you approve when a girl starts using makeup very early in her life?
Arshavin: As for the makeup, this is a purely personal matter for each girl, although I think it is better to consult a professional regarding this question.
Hi, Andrey, in what order would you place the following animals: a tiger, a cow, a pig, a horse, a sheep?
Arshavin: A pig – it will always get the last place! A tiger, a cow, a horse, a sheep. And I’ll repeat that a pig is always the last one, because it is a pig.
How do you see yourself in 50 years?
Arshavin: 78-year old man, with aching legs and a glamorous walking stick 🙂
Well enjoy the lull gooner fans, Saturday cannot come soon enough, with Liverpool away at United a win against West Ham would put us in a great position to go top albeit for a couple hours until Chelsea play Blackburn which is no easy game. Finally, Time Warner picked up FSC HD so Arsenal fans can see the West Ham game in glorious high-definition this Saturday.
‘Til later Come On You Reds!
