Boxing Day here in the UK and it’s got nothing to do with grown men knocking six bells out of each other!
For many, Boxing Day is about eating all the food that was left over from Christmas Day, making sure it didn’t go to waste but the origin of its name come from employees picking up their ‘gift parcel’ or ‘Christmas box’ on the first working day after the 25th December and this could contain anything from left over food, to money….
On to Arsenal – we don’t have a fixture today as it’s been postponed until tomorrow but when the whistle blows for kick off, the gloves will be off!
We may not have the three minutes rounds and of course, we won’t have the knock-out but anything other than three points tomorrow will feel like one!
As expected, there is little Arsenal news other than a few reports which suggest Robin van Persie could be in line for a rest tomorrow. I’m not sure that would be such a good idea and it’s not about him getting the scoring record, it’s about us needing three points. Hope he starts, we get a few goals and then take him off for a rest if he needs it.
Another story going around is that AVB is being given £150 Million to spend next month to strengthen his Chav team!! Crazy money, not sure our whole squad cost that much did they?
Anyway, enjoy the leftovers, tomorrow the boys are back in business!
Have a good day all……
