As you’re probably well aware we have now entered another international break and that means no more Arsenal until next weekend. I’m not happy about it and I very much doubt you are either. Sigh.
As a result of the players taking a break from Arsenal I’ve decided that I will too. There’s rarely any Arsenal news during these breaks apart from hearing about injuries so I thought I’d have a rest and use the time to recuperate and catch up on some other work. I might pop on from time to time if some truly sensational news hits the press (“Tomas Rosicky completes full training session!”) but apart from that I’d going to put my feet up and refresh my brain. I hope you can understand.
Before I go, however, I thought I’d compile a list of 9 things you can do during the international break to pass the time and stay involved in all things Arsenal. Enjoy!
(1) Have a read of yesterday’s blog post, entitled “5 things Wenger can do to kick-start Arsenal’s season”.
(2) Read all about Amaury Bischoff and Mikael Silvestre’s respective debuts for the reserve team in their 3-2 win over Stoke. The very excellent ‘Young Guns’ blog has all the coverage.
(3) If you missed it, have a look through the latest issue of The Gooner Gazette, the Arsenal FC Blog’s monthly online magazine. And remember, if you’re interested in contributing to the magazine in the future be sure to contact me on admin(at)arsenalfcblog(dot)com.
(4) Join Pikum! and start playing to win fun money or the real stuff. One of the players of Pikum – reputable UK TV personality Helen Chamberlain – is hosting a massive pot for the England v Belarus game where you can win over £250 on a £5 bet. Remember as a reader of this blog you’re entitled to a free £10 credit to play with so I’d encourage you to get involved and have some fun.
(6) Become an international correspondent for the Arsenal FC Blog. I want to create a bit of a worldwide information network, so if you live in Italy, France, Germany, Spain, the US, South America or Asia and would like to become a correspondent for all things Arsenal in your area then please get in touch with me at admin(at)arsenalfcblog(dot)com.
(8) If you’re Australian reader of the blog I’d encourage you to join the Arsenal Australia supporters group. They organise meets at pubs around the country and are an excellent bunch of guys to catch an Arsenal game with in the middle of the night.
(9) Still desperate to read about the latest Arsenal happenings while I’m away? Then read some of the other great Arsenal blogs around like Arseblog, The Cannon, Young Guns, Goodplaya and A Cultured Left Foot.
(10) Check out this hilarious video of Jens Lehmann playing for Stuttgart which shows just why Arsene Wenger was happy to let the German go in the summer. Thank goodness he’s not still here is all I can say.
Heh heh, well that’s about it. As I said I might pop on now and again to see what’s happening but otherwise I’ll be back posting sometime next week.
Adios amigos, and remember that if you’d like to help out with The Gooner Gazette or are interested in becoming an international correspondent for the blog to get in touch with me on the email address I provided above. It’s not a big commitment at all, just an avenue to give those who want to contribute to this community a little bit the chance to.
Cheers for now and I’ll speak to you soon.
