Good news on free tickets, good news on injuries, good news about women, good news about Carlos Vela.
It is all Good, Good, Good, Good. Oh yes!
First off, the two free tickets for club level this weekend.
If you read my meanderings on a regular basis, then in between your need for occasional psychiatric you will be aware that 02 gave Jane and I a sensational day out in the Blue Room for the Notlob game, with as much drink and you could shake a stick at, the best food I have ever had at a football match, and two super sensational club level tickets, plus a crazed ride in a rickshaw down the Holloway Road, and some fun and games in the 02 bubble.
Now they are back with more tickets at club level, and being the jolly lovely people that they are, they have invited me to help give them away!
Of course I would prefer it if they invited Jane and I back to club level, but well, you know, share it around, and all that stuff.
So here’s how it goes. Every week O2 will broadcast a famous Arsenal chant. They will encourage people to tweet the chant on twitter with the hashtag #o2arsenal and any other message they can fit in. The first tweeter to get 50 re-tweets will win two club level box tickets to the next Arsenal home match. So the first winner will be going to West Brom this home game weekend and experiencing everything I experienced at Bolton. And I can tell you mateys, it was pretty mind blowing.
More details of the prize and the competition can be found here: http://o2blueroom.co.uk/events/Win-Arsenal-tickets/460
This weeks chant to tweet is
OHH-O Theo Walcott, Theo Theo Walcott, he’s an Englishman at Arsenal #o2arsenal bit.ly/bRBte5
Meanwhile the good news (or is that Good News) does not stop there. Gibbs hasn’t broken every bone in his body. In fact he hasn’t broken any, and will be back in action shortly.
And Carlos Vela pulled the greatest stunt of all, and has got himself banned by Mexico for six months. That is most of the rest of the season – and that means no more mindblowingly inept and insane trips to the New World and then not being back in time to get over jet lag.
He’s here, he’s ours, and he can play. Yipeeeeeee.
Now onto the delicate subject of the ladies.
Arsenal Ladies have a real problem in that they are not playing in a league this autumn, because their league doesn’t start until March. But they still have to play Euro Cup games, and they have just played away in Serbia (a dinky little country Jane and I visited a few years back, as well as taking in Montenegro and Croatia.
Anyway, we won away 3-1 in the first game – a nifty lead for the first game of the season, you will agree.
The official Arsenal web site says, “the second leg on October 14 is not a foregone conclusion.” Don’t give me that!
Anyway, if all that were not good enough, there is a fair old chance that Diaby and Vermaelen will be fit for the Woobleyous of Western Brom-witch.
So that’s it. We is unbeaten, 02 are giving away seats in the Clubby Wubby level, with all the food and drink, Carlos had a party, the ladies won, and the Greater London Council is debating whether to send Tottenham back to Middlesex from whence they came. “They’re an absolute shower,” said Boris. (Only in Latin.)
Happy or what?
The reason that Tottenham are our bitterest rivals is not at all because the grounds are so close.
