Been a long time...

Almost three weeks, I think, but somehow these days I don't seems to be able to summon up the inclination to write my blog. A notable regrettable state of affairs. So for lack of time I must devote a para or so to each of the momentous events that have happened over the past twenty or so days intead of en entire post.

Arsenal vs Wigan- the last game at Highbury. 4-2, but not without moments of drama, not before we were down 2-1 and looking to end up 5th... in the end a virtuoso Henry hat-trick coupled with a memorable gesture when he kneeled to kiss the Highbury turf. What a send-off for the grand old stadium. Goodbye Highbury, 1913-2006, gone but never forgotten.

Champions' League Final- A great performance, a stirring performance full of grit, passion and determination- down to 10 men after just twenty minutes due to another eccentric moment from Mad Jens and Bobby being taken off in possibly his last Arsenal game was truly heartbreaking. Still, a magnificent rearguard action made us all dare to dream for a while before ol' Henric Larsson shattered everything. Next season I am backing Valencia in the La Liga. Still, well done lads, here's to the first of many finals.

Henry's new contract- I was almost dancing when I heard the news. Four more years to terrorize the EPL defenses and make him the greatest Arsenal player ever, period. The perfect antidote after the gloom of 17th May. We love you Thierry, we do!

Oh yeah, sometime in the middle of this all Theo Walcott has been picked for the England squad, I've begun reading Plutarch's "Lives" and the board exam results are day after tomorrow.
