It’s good to see the odd interviews creeping into the news aggregators that look forward, not back. Opinions about what has passed have become polarised. The time has come to accept that and ignore the people you don’t want to listen to (isn’t the ipod cassette adaptor a wonderful invention when you have had enough of the car radio!).
The Times are among the many sources who have piggy-backed onto a Cesc Fabregas interview in the Arsenal magazine where the Catalan genius speaks of the critics who wrote off our title chances pre-season. He also speaks sensibly of the weeks to come.
“We are not thinking it’s all over, we would be very stupid to do that. We have to keep working hard and keep believing we can do it. If we can win it it would be amazing considering the age of the team.”
It would signify not just an achievement for youth, it would prove once and for all that you do not have to throw money around like confetti in order to achieve major success.
Out Of Touch With Reality
Nobody can accuse the FA of not having its ear to the ground. In a week when there has been a widespread clamour to differentiate between the punishment for leg-breaking challenges and petulant retaliation they have acted swiftly. Giving an additional one match ban to Jeremie Aliadiere for his cheek-tickling assault proves beyond all reasonable doubt that the governing body in this country has gone absolutely stark-staring bonkers.
Win An Arsenal Opus With O2
Todays featured image is a visual painkiller, a reminder of better days than we have enjoyed in the last week or so. Thank you to Andrew for his snap of the last goal at Highbury.
I still get emotional thinking of that day. I am so grateful I got there early, walked around the place, got in the ground when the gates opened (and avoided alcohol!) just so I could take in as much of the occasion as possible. I have been through all of the photographs I took myself and it is astonishing how fresh in the memory it all still is.
Anyway, if you want to vote for your favourite photo, and win your own copy of this sumptuous book, visit the O2 blueroom here. Voting closes on Friday so don’t leave it too late.
