Today’s blog is a very quick one because, after last night’s event at Union Chapel, it was some time after 3am when I got back to my hotel … via the kebab shop opposite it. Delicious at the time but I wish I still wasn’t tasting it this morning.
Thank you so much to everyone who came out last night, it was incredible to see so many people and hopefully you enjoyed the show. The venue was absolutely amazing, and I have to say thanks to Carlo, Dani and the promoters, as well as all the staff at Union Chapel who made the night so much easier for us. Also, to James, Elliot, Paul, Tim and Clive, it was great to share a stage with you guys and hopefully we can do more of this again soon.
The event is available to watch over on Patreon so if you’re looking for something to pass the time before kick off today, that’ll help.
As for the match, all we can do is what we can do. There’s no room for sentiment in today’s team selection, and we have to approach it with the mindset that the unlikely but hilarious thing will happen at Carrow Road. I don’t know who we’ve got fit at the back, so we might be a bit patched up there but there’s no room for sentiment in the team selection. Just pick the best available players we have, do our job, and see what happens elsewhere.
This will be my first game for a few years so I’m really looking forward to this. Hopefully we just get it done, Harry Kane at last gets the red card he deserves and that lot fall apart in a manner which redefines the concept of ‘Spursy’.
The usual coverage will apply today, live blog and all the rest, but as I’m not around it might be a little different. Anyway, fingers crossed and all that, hopefully see some of you for a pre-game pint in The Tollington and now I’m going to run my head under a cold tap and see if that helps.
Come on Arsenal!
