Christmas is like an Arsenal transfer window………..

December 25, 2013

Morning all.

Christmas Day is finally here.

merry christmas

Moving away from the real reason I celebrate Christmas, in the football world it’s a bit like a transfer window for an Arsenal fan. There’s a lot of build up to the big occasion but you are aften left disappointed when it’s over. Having hoped for a bicycle you end up getting a bobble hat or a pair of socks instead, ok I’m going back a bit!

In this day and age it’s all about getting the latest ‘i’ gadget or some other music/television device which costs a fortune….

Who wants a Nokia these days eh, well other than old farts like me who really can’t get to grip with the latest technology..

A week today, the winter transfer window opens and Arsene Wenger or whoever else is in control of transfers, must sign a player or two. They need to steer clear of any of the alternative options and simply sign the equivalent of the latest iphone or ipad.

Not the one planned for the future, or the one some people had five years ago, it has to be the one that’s performing now…..

I don’t know of any Arsenal fan who doesn’t want Arsene Wenger to sign a striker and he’s got to be good, very good and ready to walk into the side and make a difference.

The same goes for any other player who the club sign, mind you, I think hoping for more than one is me being rather optimistic.

Enough of me rambling on about January, right now I just want three points tomorrow……

Merry Christmas to you all and I hope that however you celebrate this great occasion, you have a wonderful time with your family, friends and other loved ones.

At the same time though, let’s spare a thought for those who can’t be together today for one reason or another. Christmas can be a joyful time for many, but it can also be sad and tough for many others…..

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, have a lovely day….

Merry Christmas everyone………

Oh, and by the way, Santa has given me an ipod this year, get me eh. Maybe that’s a good sign…..

That’s your lot for today……

Demba Ba set to sign on the 1st Jan? Merry Christmas Gooners…

December 25, 2012

Morning all.

Apparently, Canal+ have reported that Demba Ba is all set to sign for us on the 1st of January 2013.

Well I’m not sure where they get that idea from, or even if they have got it right, he’s what we need. Of course position wise, we need a ruthless goal scorer and he certainly knows where the back of the net is, but he’s got a weak knee and the way our luck is with injuries, he’d sign and then get crocked.

As we all know though, when the price is right, Wenger is in there so who knows.

But all that is for another day, today is about one thing and no-one needs me to explain what that is.

That message goes out to each and every one of you here on Highbury House and I hope that however you celebrate this occasion, you have a wonderful time with your family, friends and other loved ones.

At the same time though, let’s spare a thought for those who can’t be together today for one reason or another. Christmas can be a joyful time for many, but it can also be sad and tough for many others…..

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, have a lovely day all…

Merry Christmas everyone………


A Christmas Message from an Arsenal Legend…..

December 25, 2011

Thanks to our regular Highbury House Blogger Lee, we have a special message from Frank McLintock to all at Highbury House.

And a Happy Christmas to you Frank......

Yep, it’s for real, no editing or messing around with photo’s…

Thanks Frank and a Merry Christmas to you too….

In fact, that message goes out to all and I hope that however you celebrate this occassion, you have a wonderful time with your families and friends.

At the same time though, let’s spare a thought for those who can’t be together today for one reason or another. Christmas can be a great time for many, but it can also be tough for others…..

Also, let’s not forget the reason we all celebrate this day, it’s not just about the big bird for lunch or the next best ipod or ipad hidden by sparkly paper, nor is it about just how soft the brussels are served. ;)

This is what it’s really about!

This is Christmas.....

See, it’s all about the birth of a young man, and rumour has it, Arsene Wenger tried to sign him up at a very young age as he was reported to be ‘something special’…. ;)

Well, he was wasn’t he…..

That’s it guys and gals, all that is left for me to do is wish you all:

Merry Christmas

Love from rico
