Season Over – Let’s finish in style…

Add comment May 4th, 2008

Our ridiculously faint hopes of winning the title disappeared yesterday, with West Ham capitulating in style to a rampant Manchester United.  Nanny, meanwhile, got himself sent off for following up a headbutt with this ridiculous piece of play-acting.  Assuming that the winger didn’t collapse to the ground out of a dehabilitating bout of regret, he really ought to have his ban extended for something as plainly fraudulent as that.

So whilst we no longer need a win to keep our season alive, we nonetheless ought to try and round off the season in style.  It’s our final home game today, and whilst I hope the fans give the players the ovation they deserve, I also hope the team pull out a performance to match the fantastic support they’ve recieved all season.

Reports in Italy suggest that Mathieu Flamini has signed a four year deal with AC Milan for about a billion pounds per minute.  However, this morning I saw a bit in The Sunday Times suggesting he’s on the verge of a move to Inter.  That leads me to believe that no-one really has any clue where he’s going to be next season, but it’s probably not Arsenal.  Flamini is likely to make a farewell appearance from the bench today.

The Times also had a little quote from Aleksandr Hleb’s Italian agent (I can’t remember his real name – let’s call him ‘Cunto’) suggesting that Hleb would like to play for Barcelona next season.  The same Alex Hleb who was practically bullied by Thierry Henry to the point where he is now physically unable to score.  Good one, Cunto.

There might be a few farewell’s today.  Don’t be surprised if Lehmann, Gilberto, Hleb and Flamini are the last to leave the pitch after the whistle.  Between them, those players have amassed a lot of Arsenal memories over the years, and I’d be relatively surprised to see any of them at the club come September.

Today is Cesc’s 21st Birthday.  I can think of a good present: the captain’s armband…
