Its been a while...

As the title says, its been quite sometime since my last post (oklah, let's call it "our" since Skay's name goes along with mine)... Although I'm not sure if anyone realised that... Anyway, the long absence was actually me just suffering in silence. Let's face it. My team is at the moment, shite (in case people forgot, its Arsenal).

Its like one of those Hollywood "Sports-Comedy" movies like Major League or Bad News Bears where the team is made up of a bunch of discontent, weary and lost souls running around the field with their heads cut off. There's the Superstar who probably feels he's going nowhere with the team. There's the love sick-heartbroken stalwart on the verge of being a has-been. There's the old genius who's about to bow out. There's the kid (or in this case, kids) who's got so much promise but still has got a lot to prove. And also there's one defensive midfielder who was never any good playing even worse than he normally does.

Well, its been a tough week with the two cup exits. But the win against Birmingham should, would could, MAY start the ball rolling again.

But in spite of our rather pitiful state, I have to say that so far, Arsene has proven he has to the nose for talent again with the signing of Diaby. He's tall, he's strong, he's got good technique and he's French with an African heritage. Kinda reminds you of someone else doesn't he?
