The @Bradyesque7 Weekly Round-up

Bergkamp statue

Early in the week, leaked photos forced Arsenal to reveal that Dennis Bergkamp will be honoured with a statue outside the stadium. This will force Arsenal into a more prompt revealing of the statue but it’s unlikely to rush Arsene Wenger who will be out panic-buying any rusty figurine he can find in a French antique shop. The Flying Dutchman will be joining Arsenal legends Tony Adams, Thierry Henry and Herbert Chapman in being immortalised in bronze. The whole thing is slightly cheapened by the fact that Phil Brown achieved this years ago.

Then came the news that goal line technology would be introduced to the Premier League for the start of next season. Le Boss welcomed the news in his press conference but is he ignoring the beauty that the confusion can bring? Remember Frank Lampard’s big, sad moon face? Are we sure we want to change something that brought us that moment?

It was never my intention to mention Lampard but I couldn’t resist the perfect segue to the elephant in the room.

Arsenal were away this week and lost, two goals to one. It was a gripping encounter for thirty five minutes where Arsenal were the better of two good sides. The Arsenal defence then proceeded to shit itself in two minutes of utter chaos. It was grim. The game was more even in the second half as the home team grew into the lead which must have shocked them as much as it did us. When we got a free kick in the corner, there was a feeling that it could bring a goal but nobody was guessing at which end it might come. Per headed it home and we were back in it. There were a couple of chances but it finished that way and typing about it is annoying.

And finally! An Arsenal fan is alleged to have thrown a banana at Gareth Bale and some newspapers are reporting that the perpetrator will be banned for life by Arsenal. It was first believed to have particularly enraged Tom Huddlestone as he was seen roaring at the infamous fruit flinger, but close up angles now show Huddlestone clearly ordering a “pie and chips with extra gravy”.

That is the round-up for this week. Thank you for reading.

Up the Arsenal!

  9. A little sympathy for Sir Rudolf, please.

    If you’d been a manager for 26 years in a league where ref’s 50/50 calls never go against you, just think how you’d feel.

    (And even more frustrating to realise you have absolutely no leverage to persecute the ref in retaliation.)

  18. Apparently a letter of apology is on its way to old toilet from the Muppet Mike Riley at PGMO addressed to Slur Furgus, stating its intentions to make good for a disappointing display from a foreign colleague who wasn’t aware of the rules of Old toilet.
    Dean, Dowd and Webb are all on standby for United’s remaining fixtures, and as an extra goodwill gesture all payments from United to the men in black are waived for the remainder of his tenure.

  22. The funny thing that I noticed in the first half (apart from the misses by the cheatin’ mancs no.20) was that both teams that apparently like to play on the counter spent most of the first half (0-0) playing the dreaded high line. Only after the own goal by Madrid did the mancy defenders consistently drop back another ten or fifteen. It seems that football tactics have evolved beyond the ken of some plundits (I can’t pretend to have a clue!)
    Poor old Stuart Robson must have had a panic attack.

  23. The recent comments from Dortmund manager Klopp about adopting an Arsenalesque* half-press at times were very interesting. Are Dortmund looking better this season then after the lessons they learnt in N5 and their late equaliser in the Away game? However, like other teams, their squad has been unsettled and they were recently mullered by Munchen.

    * Arsenal appear to vary their pressing most of the time from game to game but you wouldn’t know it if you closed your eyes and listened to the experts.

  24. No I don’t think Dortmund are better of this year, they have had to rebuild too much. But they are developing their new team with echoes of some of the tactics that we have seen at AFC, I think.
