How time flies whenâ€¦ you’re just working and commuting your ass off. I go so slowly on the North Circular these days that I reckon I could answer some serious questions on it in Mastermind. I even had a dream about Hanger Lane not so long back â€“ though I suppose, more accurately, that’s more of a nightmare.
All of which explains my slackness in the field of blog. Fortunately for me, although the rumours are certainly building, these last few days have not exactly yielded a wealth of gubbins, so it seems to have panned out quite well. At least, that’s my excuse for being an idler, and I plan to stick to it.
While things are kicking off elsewhere â€“ the Chelski wallet is rustling yet again, with this week’s potential outlay reaching a possible Â£55m (SWP and SG) â€“ we’re doing things the Arsenal way up in N5. Even our official signing is not official yet â€“ despite the fact his picture is plastered all over Arsenal.com.
Actually, there are plenty of rumours bashing around the ether, and the strongest is still the one regarding the Baptist. Latest on that: Our offer is apparently “derisory”. In transfer speak, that really means, “We’ll sell him if they offer a bit more”.
And of course, Sky Sports report that we’ve signed young Armand Traore. And what they say is gospel.
Gospel, Baptist â€“ two crap biblical references in one blog. Can’t say fairer than that, now can you?
