Stop the world I’m getting off.
It’s always good to be certain, and now we can be certain about Stan Kroenke: he is, implacably and without question, an ignorant gut of first order and highest degree. Interviewed yesterday, he said the following: “What was so tough about the Glazers’ situation? They won. And they have increased revenues by a huge amount. If I was a fan of that club, I would sit there and go, ‘Wow’”. This is so obviously so moronic that I won’t insult your intelligence by explaining why – just know that Stan Kroenke looks like what he is.
Arsenal – Marseille
Imitation Nazi (n.b. I am aware he is not a Nazi, that he had to deny these leanings in an indictment of what a pointless carry-on this country is) Robin Van Persie knocked in a hat-trick at the weekend, as Arsenal displayed a cutting edge, if not defensive prowess. It should be comfortable for them tonight, except Marseille have also pulled their fingers out. The Deschamps-Anigo power struggle continues to drag, but the players seem to have decided simply to ignore it. Playing a 4-4-2 with Remy and Ayew up front at the weekend, they stuck three past Dijon, looking something like last year’s side. Reanimated attacks and shonky defences, join us for our Arsenal 0-0 Marseille live coverage tonight.
NB This is not a political point
On the Comment is free bit of The Guardian website, there’s a facility for readers to stick up their opinions – no doubt because the paper is fascinated by them, not because it drives traffic. Anyway, the system works, after a fashion – except when the story concerns Israel. Even if it has no connection to issues of Palestine, Palestinians and peace, comments are disabled before 9am – or in other words, mutualisees can’t be trusted to keep their antisemitism to themselves. Is it any wonder people are paranoid?
