The 323rd last day of my 20s

So on the 323rd last day of my 20s, I didn't do much. Went to work, came home, that's pretty much it. There's not a lot happening with the Arsenal, either. We've been linked with a defender called Laurent Koscielny and another striker called Loic Remy. They're both French, so the story must be genuine.

We've also rebuffed Barcelona's first offer for Cesc Fabregas, a piddly sum of £33m or so. And to think that it's only £3m more than Aston Villa want for James Milner. You can't really say English players carry a premium anymore, can you?

Peter Hill-Wood had this say about it:

So, we would "rather not" they make another bid. Oh well, then I guess the gentlemanly thing to do would be for Barcelona to respect Cesc's contract and drop the issue for another season. They would have to be quite uncouth to disrespect our wishes and make another transfer bid. And the chaps who run Barcelona F.C are such honourable gentlemen, aren't they?

Everyone's just waiting for the World Cup to start, I think. Wenger's off promoting Castrol Oil, the players are either at the World Cup or playing the World Cup on their consoles... I think it's time for a bit of a break from the Arsenal.
