Yesterday wasn’t an all-action news day. Of main interest to Gooners will be the news of Jack Wilshere’s potential inclusion in the squad to travel to Carrow Road. It’s been documented by quite a few folks, but without anything in the way of fact or reason to back it up substantially. Whilst I wouldn’t seek to discount the possibility entirely, personally I consider it to be highly unlikely – at a push, he could be included to face Reading in the Capital One Cup.
Elsewhere, Djourou’s agent and Olivier Giroud have been having a bit of a chin-wag to the press about a few things; our Swiss defender could leave on loan, and our French striker hopes he can push on from his injury time equaliser against Spain:
The nameless agent of Djourou said:
“I agree that Djourou would be a useful addition for Napoli, but only in January when we find out whether Arsenal want to keep him or send him out on loan.
“Johan is a professional and so far this season he has played just two games in the League Cup. He wants to play more.
“He is fit, but things can go like this sometimes. Maybe in a few weeks Djourou will be a regular for Arsenal.”
Of his goal, Big Olivier gushed:
“That goal is definitely one of my top five.
“It has also come at a time when I am looking for trust.
“After the West Ham game I felt a weight had been lifted from my shoulders. I am convinced this last goal will also do me a lot of good.”
I feel a bit sorry for Djourou in a way – he isn’t a terrible player, and there have been occasions where he’s looked solid and reliable in an Arsenal shirt. However, there have been numerous occasions he’s looked anything but. Perhpas we will loan him out, but given our squad’s history with untimely injuries over the years, I’d say it’s better not to. We may yet need him.
Giroud, on the other hand, I’m very happy for. Since his inauspicious start, he has noticeably carried a burden with him. If that weight has lifted from his shoulders like he says, then perhaps we’ll start to see what he is capable of. He’s a handful for anyone, and I think he’ll score goals.
Yesterday I mentioned our keepers, and today reports claim Lukas Fabianski will be out for up to 3 months with an ankle problem. Not good news for Lukas. Szczsney should return to action a lot sooner.
On the subject of past posts, I posted this about John Terry’s FA punishment. Not being the type who stubbornly refuses to admit someone has done something better, I present to you this entry on the brilliant ‘Poznan In My Pants’. Very good stuff indeed, and well worth a few moments of your time.
I’ll finish today with a hilarious – albeit probably untrue – story about Robin van Persie partying with some ladies of ill-repute. After Holland beat Romania, ol’ Pursestrings was snapped entering a seedy establishment with Dutch teammates Affelay and de Jong. In a Romanian publication, it was alleged that some prostitutes joined in the fun.
The pictures are hardly damning evidence – you don’t even see Robin and the girls in the same frame. But, it is quite funny . It would seem that questionable choices in the sex industry are part of becoming a Manchester United striker. I can only assume Robin and Wayne have spent many an evening trawling through the seedy underbelly of Manchester searching for ageing ‘escorts’ to fulfil their carnal cravings.
One thing I will say; If Robin was offered a bit of oral pleasure, I’ll bet he didn’t complain once about the direction the girl was heading.
That’s all for today folks. I shan’t be calling you “beautiful bastards” any longer as I don’t want to unintentionally upset anyone. I understand my choice of words may not translate as humorous to everyone, and I apologise if I’ve caused any offence. The last thing I intend to do with this blog is be offensive or rude.
Thanks for reading, cunts…
