I havenâ??t said much on this blog for a while. I was at the Man U game, and it was emotionally exhausting. I havenâ??t known what to say about it at all, and I still donâ??t.
So I think Iâ??ll leave it for a while.
Itâ??s something Iâ??ll write about at a later date.
I sound like Myles Palmer.
After we surrendered the title against Leeds in 2003, Arsenal thrashed Southampton 6-1.
This time round, we followed up the defeat to Manchester United with a performance against Aston Villa which, but for some weak finishing, couldâ??ve produced a similar scoreline.
Patrick Vieira was perhaps the star performer, but special mention must go to Jens Lehmann and the much-maligned Edu, who both returned to the side to bring both experience and two very accomplished performances.
Pascal Cygan and Philippe Senderos formed an unlikely yet impressive central defensive partnership, and Fredrik Ljungberg was his usual industrious self.
Too little too late, perhaps.
The big story flying around is still the Ashley Cole to Chelsea drama. New evidence appears to have verified the story, as the Premier League are about to launch an official investigation.
I donâ??t know much about the whole situation, but what I do know is that it doesnâ??t bode well for Ashleyâ??s future at Arsenal. We cannot compete financially with Chelsea, and if itâ??s money Ashâ??s after, then all bets are off.
International break this week. Expect all of our players who are involved in pointless friendlies to either a) get injured, or b) die.
