Gunnerblog ‘understands’ + Our 6’2″ Brazilian left-back

Add comment May 20th, 2008

There isn’t much actual news about, but after yet more mumblings from the French press, the Samir Nasri story seems to have taken on a life of it’s own.  Now the BBC ‘understands’ our interest to be concrete.  At the BBC, ‘understanding’ something basically means guessing at it when the odds are stacked heavily in your favour.  For example:

Gunnerblog understands that tomorrow it will be Wednesday.

Then tomorrow, when it is Wednesday, I can claim I broke the story.  Clever, eh?

(Disclaimer: If indeed tomorrow it is Wednesday, that does not neccessarily mean that Nasri will sign.  It doesn’t work like that.)

Young Guns, who should be commended for producing a lot of quality specialist material, have a piece on our 6’2″ Brazilian left-back, Pedro, who has been described as a “giant Roberto Carlos”.  Whilst I’m sure that description would make calling Alex Song ‘The New Pele’ seem reserved, it’s good to know that the production line of young talent is as long as Arsene’s spindly legs.

My brother is in Moscow as we speak.  Sadly, it’s not on a mission to assassinate Ashley Cole: he’s Chelsea fan.  Till tomorrow.
