It’s Friday night right now in Brisbane and not for the first time this week I have to be super-quick.
Here’s a quick round-up of things going on involving Arsenal in the last two days:
- Arsenal have decided to contest the two-game ban handed out to Eduardo for diving. While it is certainly to be expected I can’t really see UEFA budging – particularly considering the wording that accompanied their original sentence. You can read the official Arsenal Football Club statement on the incident here.
- Manchester United are apparently making some sort of effort to stamp out the “sit down you paedophile” chant that is regularly aimed at Arsene Wenger at Old Trafford. About time, too.
- Denilson and Nicklas Bendtner have been handed new long-term contracts with the club. I think it’s quite good news, both have been promising prospects for a while and I doubt I’m alone in believing they’ve taken a step up this season. Both have good attitudes and I hope they enjoy a good future at the club.
And that’s it really.
Just to let you all know that I’m off to Malaysia for a week-long holiday starting tomorrow. I’ll be away from the blog for most of the week (need a bit of a refresher) but I’m hoping to make it to an internet cafe on Wednesday or Thursday to get in touch. It’s a good thing it’s an international break, I must say.
Among all the fun stuff I’ll be doing – scuba diving, forest walking and sipping cocktails on the beach *sighs audibly* – I will also be meeting up with the official Arsenal Malaysia supporters group to watch the Arsenal v Manchester City game on next Saturday night. I’ve got all the details of the meet-up on my other blog, Football Nomad, so be sure to click here and check it out if you’re interested in coming along.
Anyway I’ll leave it there. Have a lovely week and I’ll be in touch soon. Cheers!
