I would like to dedicate this blog to Scott aka
@OzGooner, who sadly passed away last week. Although I never met him, he was a
top Gooner, a top bloke to talk with at all times of the day & the the
first Aussie Gooner I spoke with on Twitter. Sadly missed by family &
football season is over and as I reside in Sydney, that means three months off
of 3am wake up calls to get my Arsenal fix. To keep abreast of all thing going
down in the motherland, my right arm, otherwise known as my iPad, subscribes to
the Guardian and this has informed me the summer of football is about to kick
into full force. I’m of course, talking about the off-season known as ‘Ant
&/or Dec Football’.
is the norm these days all grades of celebrities trot out for various
charities, claiming they had trials for Accrington Stanley or that they would
have been a pro if their life had gone in another direction.
remember watching Boris Johnson attempt to rugby tackle Maurizio Gaudino at the
Madejski in 2006, I don’t think I’ve laughed so much in my life!
as an alternative to Gordon Ramsey captaining The Rest of the World XI against
Robbie Williams’ England, here is an Arsenal Celebrity Supporters XI that could
trot out on ITV4 one evening in July:

faith and all that, if anyone passes her, it’s ‘off with their head’
Ability: Will stick to the line to gain the buzz he’ll need to keep going all
Sir Henry Cooper
Ability: ‘Enry’s Hammer would stop anyone getting through to shoot at QE2 in
goals. (PS: I know, unfortunately ‘Enry has passed away, but he’d still do a
better job than Sebastian Squillaci)

one getting past him.
Mo Farah (CBE)
Ability: The ‘Mobot’ will run…and run…and run…and run

Ability: The original ‘Joey Barton’ (?), a pantomime nasty little sh!te, who
will kick seven shades out of anyone who comes near him.
Attacking Centre Midfield
Ability: The musical genius behind (the mighty) Depeche Mode. Would transfer
his creative ability to the Arsenal Midfield.
