Sometimes following football can be a bizarre experience: As I sit here, I have a ‘live’ feed of our pre-season match, against FC Wiez, playing in the background. There are no images yet, just audio, so I am effectively listening to Arsenal fans singing and other sundry people going about their business prior to the match kicking off.
Now I’m just getting a low humming noise, like someone trying to contact aliens. And now nothing â€“ technology, eh, it’s brilliant.
Anyway, I digress.
It’s been another odd week, rather news-less. The Baptista thing’s gone well and truly dead for now, and there’s no other hard news in the pipeline â€“ just a few rumours about Guti, some more about Pires, and some contract extension stories regarding Freddie and Thierry.
So for the time being, I’ll just relax, sit back, and watch Mark Howard, Justin Hoyte, David Bentley, Vito Mannone and Alex Song â€“ surely all superstars in the making â€“ do their stuff.
Aha, I have a picture! That’s more like it.
