Arsenal send Bola to Bristol Rovers


Arsenal have confirmed that youngster Marc Bola will spend next season on loan with Bristol Rovers.

Theย 19-year-old left-back spent the second half of the last campaign at Notts County making 13 games.

He’s yet to make an appearance for the first team and with Cohen Bramall, Kieran Gibbs, Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac ahead of him in the pecking order he wasn’t likely to get game time this season.

A year gaining experience at the Memorial Stadium in League One should do him good.

I gather his brother E. Bola is pretty dangerous.

He’s the one we are trying to sell to Chelsea.


I hear he makes a mean lasagna.


This is a rubbish, obvious joke that had me chuckling immediately ๐Ÿ™‚

He gives really good runs.

Im my best Pam Ayres voice…..

I can’t read, and I can’t write,
But it don’t really matter,
I’m a Bristle Rovers fan,
And I can drive a tracterr.

Used to love singing that when I went to Cardiff City away games in Bristol in the early 80s. No, I’m not a traitor, I was a student in Cardiff and couldn’t afford to go all the way to London to watch Arsenal every other week so I made do with watching the local teams like Cardiff City, Newport County, and the much hated Swansea City.

I was on Cardiff’s bob bank when Arsenal knocked them out of the League Cup. I had to keep my trap shut because my accent sounds “London” to Welsh folk and they were burning England flags not five yards from where I was standing.

Nothing like that at the ANZ Stadium the other night. Real party atmosphere, even though it was bloody chilly. Woud have liked to have gone tonight too, with WSW being my local team, but at least I got to see Sydney FC (the bastards) lose. Even 35 years on I still can’t really afford too much live football. Not when it costs over $170 dollars for a friendly.

I hadn’t been on the webt for a fortnight before the game. I was absolutely shocked (in a happy way) when some guy behind me watching our 65th minute substitutions suddenly shouts out “Fuck Me!!! That’s Lacazette!!!!” …and then he scored ๐Ÿ™‚


I’ve got a bad feeling about this.


No poor T Rex jokes? Come on people, try a bit harder….


I thought a rubbish Mighty Boosh joke would do it. But no.
