It’s been a long time, but I should now be back with the lovely NewsNow. I say “should” – If I’m not, I’ll look a right pillock.
First, congratulations to Vik Akers’ womens’ side, who took the League Cup with a 3-0 victory over rivals Charlton, with Faye White hitting an absolute scorcher for the third. Apparently, they’re on for the quadruple. Better than Chelsea, then.
Ahead of the crunch tie with Bayern Munich, Arsene Wenger has proclaimed his faith in young Philippe Senderos, who will combine with Kolo Toure to form the heart of our defence.
The fact that I can’t actually make it to the tie pretty much confirms we’ll win it by at least 8 goals, so I wouldn’t worry were I you.
A couple of goals from Thierry Henry would certainly be welcome, and incidentally (smooth link here), his hatrick on Sunday has brought him to within just 8 goals of Ian Wright’s record. Do-able, especially if we stay in the two cup competitions.
Big “if”, though, isn’t it.
