Reading around the internet I come across a lot of things that don’t warrant a post on their own but are interesting enough to prick my attention.
Here are some of those things:
Kyle Bartley has Arsenal’s number
The former Arsenal youngster knows exactly where this Arsenal side are. With Arsenal two-nil up, Bartley could be heard issuing a rallying call to his teammates, saying, “Come on, one goal and they’ll s*** themselves!”
He wasn’t wrong. Arsenal let Matheus Pereira have the freedom of the Emirates to make it 2-1 and there was a definite period of panic that followed.
Bild stick the knife in
We all know things aren’t going well at Arsenal but this line from Bild still stung. Writing about Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, they said, “He set out to become a world star. Now Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (31) is part of a club that threatens to disappear into insignificance.”
Mesut Ozil on Emile Smith Rowe
After the Arsenal game against Villarreal, Mesut Ozil delivered his thoughts on the young Arsenal man taking over his number 10 role:
“He made the difference in the last couple of games as a No 10,” Ozil posted on social media. “Really happy for him… and that he showed that playing with a No 10 still can make sense in today’s football.”
Alex Song, business man
Former Arsenal man, Alex Song could pocket fortune with new business venture in Cameroon.
Song has been laying the foundations for his retirement by setting up a construction company and building flats in his Cameroon hometown of Douala.
Sol Campbell for Mayor of London
The Daily Star have an interesting piece Inside Sol Campbell’s failed bid to become London Mayor
Nigerian politician gets involved
Nigerian senator, and die-hard Arsenal fan, Orji Kalu, has begged Mikel Arteta to beg Thomas Tuchel at Chelsea for “small soap.”
The phrase apparently means to ask for support from friends and allies and is in response to the change Tuchel has brought about at Chelsea in such a short time.
Kalu is also the chairman of SLOK Holding as well as the Daily Sun and New Telegraph newspapers in Nigeria.
