Just a quick one today, as most of the news isn’t actually news… Well, it is news, but not new news, if you catch my drift. Yesterday was all about The FA Cup and given we’re in the 5th round already, I kept one eye on the results and didn’t really pay too much attention. The whole day I waited for the draw, only to realise that it’s being made today. Friday night football has really thrown me off.
With no matches to prepare for/review and Julian Draxler’s move to Arsenal being analysed in every way possible – I reckon it’s only a matter of time before Sky Sports employes a studio of pundits to review Arsene’s facial expressions in slow-motion – there really isn’t much in the way of Arsenal-related information and intrigue out there.
Dissecting gossip and rumour does get to me on the odd occasion. I’m funny like that – sometimes I really do hate the interminable speculation and constant stories. Other times, I’m prone to allowing myself to get a little swept away by it all and quietly fantasise about a shiny new striker being unveiled. I guess most of you are the same in your own way.
As I’m rambling a little and I’m really tired, how about we all watch a video together? Sound good to you?
Use the comments below to get really excited about the kid. I actually hadn’t really seem all that much of him up until recently – I think I saw him play once or twice for Schalke in Champions League games on English soil. Whilst the video above is only highlights are far from comprehensive, you’d be hard pressed to deny that Draxler looks pretty damn good.
That’s all for today, folks. I’ll be back tomorrow with something a little more substantial than today. Until then, and as always; thanks for reading, you beautiful bastards.
