Apologies for the lack of a post yesterday – a very unfortunate personal situation got in the way of things – but I’m back today with the usual Saturday links. Here goes:
- We’ve drawn Celtic in the final qualifying round of the Champions League. It’s a tough draw but not the worst possible and the games will be held on the 18th and 26th of August. Liam Brady has some interesting comments on the match-up.
- Tomas Rosicky has been confirmed as injured by Arsene Wenger and will miss six weeks. It’s a bit of a blow and makes a bit of a mockery of this article that I wrote a little while ago. Oops.
- Wenger is apparently still considering his options regarding Marouane Chamakh.
- Anyone who enjoys a good podcast should check out the Guardian’s Football Weekly show which returned last week. They have a full season preview and as is the norm for Football Weekly, it’s bloody entertaining.
Anyway, that’s it for today.
It’s the final friendly of the pre-season against Valencia later today and it should be a good game. I’ll be back with some video highlights from the match tomorrow.
Enjoy your weekend!
