I have to be incredibly speedy today because somehow I’ve found myself at an internet cafe at Byron Bay and I have very limited time. I’ll just do a quick news round-up and get onto the good bit, the return of The Gooner Gazette.
One of the heroes from the other night, Nicklas Bendtner, has been talking about the other hero, Carlos Vela. He mentions what a great player looked when he first joined Arsenal at 16 and also comments on the strong partership the pair seem to be forming.
Vela, meanwhile, has stated that being a good young talent is no guarantee of long-term success. Which, when you think about it, is perfectly true. In reality though, I think he’s just being humble – which is a good thing and shows he’s got his head screwed on straight.
Arsene Wenger has spoken about the team meeting memo that turned up in the press recently, stating that it is something he has done with his players many times and he is well proud of it. Good for him. I’m proud of it too.
He also said that he will be careful to nurture Jack Wilshere carefully. Which is smart considering he’s only 16. It’s the least you would expect.
And that’s that. Onto the good bit now.
The Gooner Gazette has returned. Those who are long-time readers of the blog will know that I started up a online magazine called The Gooner Gazette to provide a monthly round-up of all things Arsenal. It was meant to be a sort of memento or reminder of the month that had passed. Unfortunately, it was simply too much work to run both the blog and the magazine – so I canned it.
But now I’ve brought it back in a new form, with a new purpose of providing the readers of the blog the opportunity to contribute. Quite simply I can’t write the whole thing every month and I’m looking for regular readers of the blog who love Arsenal and enjoy writing to take up the chance to contribute to this blog.
The September issue of The Gooner Gazette can be found here, or by clicking the magazine cover – featuring William Gallas – on the right. Have a read and let me know what you think, and if you’re interested in contributing and writing or ideas to the magazine in the future contact me at admin(at)arsenalfcblog(dot)com.
Cheers everyone, look forward to speaking to you soon.
