Arse Catches The Eye Of Top Totti

Arse Catches The Eye Of Top Totti

Italy. Ah, the country of passion, good food, beautiful women, muggers on the back of mopeds who nick said womens' handbags, and giant-fuck-off prehistoric-looking wasps that scare the bejeezus out of me.

Italy is also the country of the reigning Champions League holders, AC Milan, the team we face in the next round of said cup, and who aim to dump out of the competition. A result that would shock many, if not us Gooners, if we do so.

One man who sounds like he wouldn't be surprised is Francesco Totti. The 31-year old, who has in the past been scathing about The Arsenal, was quoted today as heaping praise on Arsene Wenger's young charges. The Giallorossi star is quoted as saying, when asked who he has admired most in this season's competition:

Arsenal`s young team. When your team is only composed of players who lack experience, usually you face big difficulties at international level. It is not the case [for the Gunners].

The Gunners are as comfortable in the Champions League as in The Premier League. It makes me happy because it shows that betting on the academies can pay.

When you can rely on Fabregas, (or fellow Roma team-mates) [Daniele] de Rossi or [Alberto] Aquilani, then you don`t have to spend €200 million.


Or indeed £16m on Darren Bent. Well said, that man.

It is a compliment coming from a footballer as good as Ttti, and for all his antics on the field who truly is a symbol of what is lacking in European football off it. A one club man, who gives half of all his earnings to charity. I remember after the 06 WC reading an interview with RVP in which he said they were both holidaying, post-tournament, in the same hotel and when he first met him he thought he would be a real arrogan**** from how he plays but said he was the most down to earth footballer he'd met once he got to know him. A bit like our Cesc really, humble off the pitch a firey, passionate, irrational hot head on it.

Not flooded, just soggy. Lots of irrate tourists. then again, when you're a Gooner down here, you are mostly nocturnal anyway, so I hardly notice. Just lovin the team right now. proud to be a Gooner, in among all the other big 4 fans, coz that's all we have here
