Transfer stuff

Transfer stuff

I find it hard during International weeks. Not only because I couldn’t really care less about it and miss the domestic action with a passion, I also struggle to find things to write about that aren’t already all over the interweb. I’ve seen some ridiculous transfer rumours this week, Ashley Young being the one I find hardest to believe, but I thought I would look at another possible target. I honestly believe 99% of the transfer stories in the tabloids…

The King can’t train, long live the King

The King can’t train, long live the King

Fabio Capello must rate Ledley King very highly indeed to include him in today’s England squad. Our Captain is without doubt the best centre back in the Premiership on his day but his inability to train on a regular basis means makes his inclusion in the National squad all the more impressive. By all accounts, Ledley spends his training time either swimming or in the gym on a bike. It’s taken a lot of time and effort but it looks…

Top 4, maybe Harry wasn’t being unrealistic

Top 4, maybe Harry wasn’t being unrealistic

A lot of people laughed at Harry Redknapp when he mentioned the Premier League top 4 and Tottenham in the same sentence last week. Arsenal fans around the country were rolling around on the floor and it wasn’t because they were looking for Eduardo’s foot that flew off when he took his penalty against Roma. Every season the over optimistic Spurs supporters and the many media pundits with little football knowledge tip us to break into the illusive Premier League…

EXCLUSIVE: North London Divide

EXCLUSIVE: North London Divide

I’ve joined forces with the enemy – Wrighty from the wrighty7 Arsenal blog. We came up with an idea for a joint Arsenal and Spurs blog and it’s now live at http://northlondondivide.com/ – North London Divide. The aim of the new site is for a place where Tottenham and Arsenal fans can go and have some serious banter without getting too out of hand. We realise this will be a difficult task but I’m sure it’s possible! We will be…

Keanes are no good for Sunderland

Keanes are no good for Sunderland

What a difference a Keane makes eh? The best result I could see us getting yesterday was a draw, but when we went 1-0 down so early, I thought Sunderland were likely to sit on it and make it very hard for us to score. That they did but the lads didn’t roll over or lose concentration as they had been doing in most away games this season. If you look at our games at Bolton, Wigan, West Brom and…

If we could get seventh it would be unbelievable

If we could get seventh it would be unbelievable

That’s the way Aaron Lennon is thinking. The little guy’s really made a move away from the Tony Daley/Ruel Fox hybrid I had him down as at the start of the season. His place in the team was under threat but he’s really knuckled down, improved his final ball and made sure his is one of the first names on the team sheet. Below are Aaron’s thoughts; “We know we shouldn’t be in the bottom half of the league with…

It’s 1.03 am and I’ve just watched Wayne Stock

It’s 1.03 am and I’ve just watched Wayne Stock

I caught then end of it actually, I hope that’s not a sign that Wazza is going to haunt me later today. In all seriousness, when I look at the squad we have to choose from compared with what Utd have to work with, I can see nothing other than a victory for Sir Alex’s men. If our medical team have managed to get all Ledley’s plastic limbs fitted in time, we might have a chance of keeping things respectable…
