Almunia has been hosting a web chat over on arsenal.com, but that's about all that's going on. Breaking news about Mark Randall wanting to get some loan experience just doesn't cut the intensity of a game every three days and fighting on all fronts...
The only news we have today is that fact that despite not playing for us for the previous X amounts of weeks, Emmanuel Adebayor is going to play for his country. In one way, it's good - if he's ready, then it's good match practice before he returns to the Emirates. The Togan coach said:
“Ade did not come here for nothing, he is here to play against Cameroon.
“He is the main man for the national team. He is my captain, the nation can count on him.
“He has always given his best for the country so he will be a boost to the squad. He is a wonderful player.”
Okay, if you say so Mr. Thissen – the fact that he’s been woeful for Arsenal this season surely may contribute to the fact that you shouldn’t play an injured player. Anywho – I’ve lost my ability to care about what happens with Adebayor – since he’s been out of the team, we started to win and score goals…
In the meanwhile, Matty Almunia must be mega-bored when the International break comes. He’s stuck at the Emirates with… hmmm, let me think… the injured players, so that’s Cesc at the moment and always Rosicky. Maybe Rosicky organises games for these weeks or something. Hopscotch?
Almunia probably hates hopscotch and said:
“People are asking this question now because I have been in England for five years and am able to apply for a passport.
“I am taking in the information, what I need to do for a passport. I think, for January next year, maybe I can have the permission.
“Maybe I will get a passport, then after, if I get the call-up [from England], I will think about this.”
Oh yeah, baby, that’s the spirit – it would be the weirdest thing ever seeing Almunia play for England. I’m surprised he hasn’t got a Spanish call up to be honest. So hang in there Matty A… someone will come a calling soon…]]>
