Rocky, 8yrs gone and a Tuesday round-up.

I suppose I should start today’s blog by giving a reminder, not that it’s needed, that today is the 8yr anniversary of the passing of David ‘Rocky’ Rocastle. Time passes quickly but a legend will never be forgotten. There is a nice tribute to him on ArsenalInsider where there is also an interview with Rocky’s sister, Karen. It’s good to remember.


Elsewhere, in The Mirror Adebayor talks about how we have been killed by injuries this season. He has a point, no other team has been hit by so many long-term injuries to key players this season. However, it doesn’t explain the fact that he has been a big lazy bastard since signing his new £80,000 a week contract. It’s time for him to get the finger out and start putting himself about on the pitch, get stuck in and actually attempt to earn his salary. Otherwise, I would be hoping for him to be shown the door in the summer if he is no longer prepared to do his bit for the team.


Also in The Mirror, Hull Shitty’s chairman goes on about how this whole spitting incident could be settled amicably and gracefully if Cesc would only apologise to them for what happened. Well, first, go fuck yourself. Cunt. Second, Cesc denies that anything untoward has happened. Third, you can’t help but feel that the reason he is making this statement is so that his club can avoid shaming themselves in this farcical situation that they themselves created. If Cesc says he didn’t do it, then he should be believed. So, I hope that Hull get shown up to be the shower of cunts that they clearly are. Also, you can’t help but feel that that fat fucker over at Blackburn has some kind of a hand in this whole situation. One more point, yesterday Hull claimed that this FA inquiry is not of their doing, that it is the FA that has taken it unto themselves to investigate. So, how would Cesc apologising to Hull bring an end to the matter? Wankers.


It seems that Robin Van Persie is a doubt for the Holland game with a groin injury, so let’s hope that it’s just a minor complaint and that he will be available for The Arsenal sooner rather than later. But, given Robin’s history, we may not see him for a few weeks. Looks like the chocolate leg syndrome may have spread to his groin.


There is still plenty of discussion going on about the power struggle, or perceived power struggle, going on at the club and it looks set to come down to whether or not Lady Nina is actually looking to offload her shares or not, which amount to 15.9% of the club, and if so to whom will she sells those shares.  But, one thing is for sure, we are more financially stable with Kroenke on board as his own personal fortune far outweighs that of Danny Fiszman. So, there is no need to worry too much about the future direction of the club just yet.


Right, more tomorrow. Have a good one.

    Hopefully those injuries won’t turn out to be serious or long-term. Though with Van Persie’s and Diaby’s histories I wouldn’t be holding my breath…

    Van Persie, Bendtner and now Diaby….the injuries have started to pile up again just when we thought we would have everyone back for the run in…
