Wake Up, We're Trying To Goad You

Fancy having a poke at the Old Enemy? Willing to give and take? Probably most of you.

Sad git with a PC? Certainly most of you, or you wouldn't be reading this.

Really sad git with a Facebook profile? Well then, you'll no doubt want to sign up to the Cult Of The Honey Badger group which is a friendly place to discuss footy with fans of that lot from the Lane. You even get a "rank": how cool is that?

Arrrgh, it all aches...

Ah, well here we are again. I crawl out of the woodshed, creaking more than somewhat, to find summer's been and gone and that we've got a new all-singing, all-dancing PM. Having taken a look I'm tempted to venture back to the woodshed but I know there's work to be done and that I have to be strong.

A new season is only days away and it's a season forward to which I think we really should be looking. Let's get ready, people, it'll be a good 'un.

Stock up the fridge dudes...

Sanity later, right now another beer...

Gosh, That Was Quick

And here we are at Tuesday already. Time flies when you're drinking beer. Liverpool vs Chelski this evening and like all right-thinking people I'm crossing everything for a 'Pool win, though I'm really none too optimistic that it'll come about.

Elections on Thursday - don't forget to check you're registered to vote...

RIP Alan Ball

Sadly, and as you no doubt already know, Alan Ball has died at the age of only 61. He'd suffered a heart attack. A very sad day, not just for Arsenal fans but for fans of football everywhere: it was rather touching to see the many, many tributes already placed at Everton's ground for example.

I'm certainly not the only one who has loads of great memories of Bally in an Arsenal shirt, though I'm sure he'll be best remembered by most for his role in another red shirt - that of England in the 1966 World Cup Final.

He'll be a big miss, that's for sure.

Out Of The Woodshed, Now Stuck In The Bathroom

Urggghhh. I feel dreadful, another of the wonderful selection of work bugs I guess, so you'll have to wait for the weekend wedding update.

On a more positive note, The Sun reports: "The Queen has revealed she supports Arsenal, following in the footsteps of the Queen Mother who was, according to a senior royal source, "a self-confessed Gooner, due largely to her admiration of former player Denis Compton"." Rather cool, I think you'll agree.

Message From The Woodshed

I've been a little tied up of late, but things should be back to normal pretty soon. Have fun!

Welcome Back Sir

Liverpool. Cracking result. Great game, too, at least from where I was standing. TH14 has looked truly up for it in the couple of games he's been back, the break's clearly done him good. Excellent. The whole team's looking the biz now, having no TH14 to rely on has done them good, I think, and now we can look forward to firing on all cylinders for a while. Sorry, I'm gibbering, but then it is Sunday and the vet has fucked up my prescription yet again.

More anon. Have a good 'un.

Reported in the Daily Mail: "Police have refused to release photographs of two escaped murderers, claiming it might breach their human rights, it was revealed today." Give me strength...

It's Your Brush Tony, Tar Yourself And Not Us

The Government's response to the killing of Saddam Hussein shames us all. That the man died with dignity despite the circumstances is a huge credit to a man who Mr Bush and President Blair have described repeatedly as a coward. How such a death is supposed to help the situation in Iraq is beyond me. Another commentator has noted the similarity between Blair's guitar strumming whilst Saddam swung and Nero's fiddling whilst Rome burned. He's surely not far off the point.

I'm opposed on principle to the death penalty, as most of you who know me probably know, but even so I can understand why the sentence might be appropriate in the case of a man responsible for so many deaths and such a regime. Having seen the footage of his hanging I have to say, though, that he appears to have been the only one to emerge from the business with his honour intact. Tony Blair is personally opposed to the the death penalty, as (more importantly) is our nation. Where was President Blair's personal appeal for clemancy? Where was our Government's appeal?

Tony Blair, you are a disgrace. Please leave, the door is open.

Well Here We Are In 2007

I hope you all had a fine Christmas and a good New Year's celebrations. It remains to be seen whether the new year will be a good one, of course.

It's been a while since I was last in a fit state to operate a computer, so the blog's missed loads of stuff. Some of it is still worthy of comment, however.

On the ArseFront I think we've not had too bad a couple of weeks at all. Despite the injuries and so on we've done pretty well - the Blades game excepted - and the team is now looking, frankly, bloody good with TH14 back. I suspect the Liverpool FA Cup game may be coming a bit too soon, but let's see.

Christmas was splendid as far as I'm concerned - the presence of kids made all the difference, that time of year really is for them. We followed it up with the BossMother's 70th, which really was a cracking event. Glad you enjoyed it Pat, you deserve it.

New Year's Eve saw another insane but thorougly wonderful night at the Queen's Head. Not sure how you'll keep this up chaps, but I really hope you do.
