Internationals & Some more important stuff

Add comment October 12th, 2009

Hello.  I don’t have a vast amount to say about the weekend’s internationals, which conspired to be outrageously dull.  Furthermore, FIFA’s decision to seed the European World Cup Qualification Play-offs has disillusioned me immensely.  It seems that Blatter has forseen the possibility of a World Cup without the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, and panicked.

There were, however, some Arsenal goalscorers.  Gallas netted for France against the Faroes, Philippe Senderos scored two headers for Switzerland, and Cesc Fabregas grabbed this delightful lobbed effort for Spain against Armenia.  Cesc will now miss their midweek game due to “family reasons” – whilst I hope nothing too bad has befallen Cesc’s family, I’m delighted he’ll get a rest ahead of the weekend.

Eduardo’s Croatia are out of the tournament, and whilst I’m sure the striker will be disappointed, a summer off will be just what he needs after what will have hopefully been a successful comeback season.  The same could be said for Tomas Rosicky, whose Czech Republic side still trail Slovakia and Slovenia.

More important than any of that is the fact that tomorrow night is the gala screening of The Gooner Review 08-09.  Arseblog flagged it up the other day, and I wanted to quickly remind you that the screening is at the Phoenix Cinema in East Finchley, at 9.00pm.  Whilst it’s a cracking film, the really fantastic thing is that 100% of profit will go to Bob Wilson’s Willow Foundation, as well as the Phoenix Cinema Centenary Restoration Project. For details of attending, along with Bob Wilson and others, please check the Gooner Review website.  A clip of the film follows.

Till tomorrow.
