Greetings from a hot and humid Yokohama. It’s river-down-your-crack hot today, but I am not complaining as I have also started my summer holidays today. So, all is good.
Things are a bit quiet on the Arsenal front. I heard a very interesting story last night but that’s about all I can say for the moment. If it comes to pass, we will be a good deal stronger going into the new season. But, as like many stories you hear on the grapevine, they don’t all come to pass. Regardless of whether or not it does bear fruit, I have been very much reassured, just by hearing the story, that the boss does indeed intend to make us competitive again. Sorry for being so horribly vague, but that’s how it has to be. I’ll just leave it by saying that it involves two players, neither of whom have been linked with us yet this summer.
Former Arsenal player, and legend, Thierry Henry yesterday signed with the New York Red Bulls on a multi-year deal. He is set to appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon today, Thursday, so if you want to submit a question for consideration for Jimmy to ask Thierry get yourself on Twitter and send a message to Jimmy Fallon pronto. I submitted two, no idea if they will be asked. He will make his debut for his new team on July 22nd, against Spuds.
There are reports that Cesc actually bought himself a brand new house about a month ago which, if true, would certainly indicate that our captain isn’t ready to leave these shores just yet.
It’s all depressingly quiet today, I must admit. Hopefully things will start to pick up in the next day or two. The squad for the friendly against Barnet this coming Saturday is set to be announced on Friday. Expect it to be a young side, along with some of the players that didn’t go to the World cup and our new boys Chamakh and Koscielny.
There is a discussion with Arseblogger on the Young Guns site today, where they talk about the youth system at Arsenal. Check it out.
Right just a short one for today as there is nothing much else to talk about. Have a good one.
