Many things have happened since my last post way back in July, or was it August? No, it was July. Anyway, no point in going into any of them now as they’ve been done to death by all and sundry. The reason for my absence was work related and i had no time at all for writing any kind of readable post.
But, that was then. This week saw us take on West Brom at the Emirates in the Carling Cup and it gave some of our younger youngsters a chance to get some competitive action under their belts, although footballers don’t wear belts so I’m not quite sure why that particular metaphor is used in relation to football. Anyway, they won 2-0 with goals from Watt and Wilshere. A good result and lets hope that they can get another home draw in the next round.
Today’s papers see us linked with yet another Belgian, this time a winger called Eden Hazard. I wonder does he drive a revamped General Lee… Wouldn’t read too much into this as it more than likely lazy journalism based on the fact that Vermaelen is doing well and we like young players.
The boss has spoken out against the proposed new transfer ruling that players under 18yrs of age cannot be transferred internationally. Coupling that with English clubs only being able to recruit within a 90min drive of their training ground and it really would throw the proverbial spanner in the works. This throwing of spanners must have been a big problem must have been quite the issue for it to get its very own idiom.
Elsewhere, Bendtner is still dropping quotes saying he wants to play centrally up front. Though they could just be regurgitated quotes.
That’s about it really. Bit of a quiet return. Them’s the breaks.
