The Gooners are off to Oporto today, otherwise known as Porto in English. Which is just lovely. I hope the lads enjoy their little vacation and that Denilson makes his biggest contribution to the season this trip.


Ba dum chish!!!

Anyway, they are all probably flying off together to Portugal today, although I doubt they look like this . They are probably wearing silly hats, or dangley chains, or ridiculous scarves, or empathically humongous headphones, or even better emphatically humongous headphones worn over ridiculously dangley silly hats.

Not much news today cept Billy Gallasshole didn't train, hence my lovely title about Mr. Campbell.

I saw a nice little soccer a.m. piece yesterday thanks to JamRockRover —teammates with Andrei Arshavin—I liked that Sol Campbell didn´t have to do a re-initiation when he came to the club. I can just imagine that huge man telling the kids to fuck off when they asked him to get on a chair a do a sing song.

I actually was thinking yesterday I hadn´t done a question of the day in a long time. Sooooo...

Who is the other player that Arsene Wenger re-signed for the Club?

Anyway, if William doesn't play, then it seems like Sol will come in the back. Personally, I'd quite like to see a Titanesque battle between Hulk and Sol. It would be a bit like Hulk vs. the Sun, which would be a furious battle of green envy and solarous rage...Sorry guys I was at work until 11 PM last night and got in at 8 AM this morning, so I'm a little pooped.

Not much else going on. Andrei isn't going to make the game. I commented on a couple of Arsenal Blogger mates´ pages yesterday that I wasn't too displeased about Andrei's playing status. That is to say, he's not playing.

I think he's been asked to do a little too much this year, I mean 12 months after he´s signed he's already played five different positions. LM, LWF, RWF, CF, SS for the Pro Evo fans out there, and been asked to win us big games. Most foreign players don't even adapt to the team, nevermind the league in 12 months. Eg. Drobga hardly set the world alite his first year for Chelsea.

Anyway, long story about a short guy short, Andrei is out, and I'm looking forward to seeing Nasri come in and occupy that LWF position. He's so tricky around the box, and he works hard so he'll give us craft and defensive steal. Me likey.

Here's hoping David Beckham curls a free into the top corner and celebrates by kicking his shoe into Fergie's fat alcoholic red nose tonight.

Come on Milan. Come on you Gooners.

More Tomorrow. ArsenalAdam
