"Aim for the ceiling and you'll stay on the floor.”

Would somebody like to explain to TDH how a land-based mammal like a squirrel can make it onto the pitch at Highbury? Well, if this animal could, then TDH supposes any species would have a shot....

In any case, it was a pretty enjoyable match against El Submarino, wasn't it? Certainly it was if you were into fashion. The Austrian referee, Konrad "Bruno" Plautz, was kind enough to give half the members of Villareal's team a cute little card to coordinate with their yellow outfits. Their outfits might have been green, though, by the end of the math, what with all the time they spent sprawled on the pitch. Isn't there an old joke that starts, "How many stretchers does it take to carry a submarine?"

The ref also turned a blind eye as Gilberto Silva attempted to use his legs to slice Jose Mari in half on the edge of the box. In fact, given the fairly obvious difference in class, the Gooners should feel a bit embarrassed that the match could easily have ended 1-1.

Next time around, TDH is guessing, the Blind Frenchman will bring on the Flying Dutchmen a bit earlier. As soon as they came on to relieve Hleb and the underwear model, the chances poured in fast and furious. The main threat, of course, was always TH. You can't stop him, you can only hope to contain him....

The Brum Bums beat Fight Club! More good news for the Toon. Now, as long as we can beat the very same Bums and their neighboring muppets, all will probably be well.

that squirrel was hilarious.

I thought the game was crap, to be honest. Riquelme was marked/fouled out of it, and Arsenal were mediocre for most of it. Barca would piss all over them.

and another point - how much of a cheat is Sorin/Rapunzel? You couldn't look at him without him falling over. And people complain about Inzaghi...
