Ending the Year on a High!!!

arsenal pennentArsenal are finishing the year in style,they defeated QPR 2-1 on Boxing Day and today they defeated West Ham United 2-1. All the teams ahead of them in the league dropped 2 points in ties.  Arsenal moved into 5th spot in the league and play Southampton on News Year Day, fingers crossed for another three points. Hopefully many of the injured players will be back soon. Its serious with Wiltshire, Arteta and Ramsey all out of action, they create so much of the mid field play.

Now for you people not interested in football (soccer) I can’t believe there very many!!! A wee Irish joke to brighten your Monday morning.!!!

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime

It was raining hard and a big puddle had formed in front of the little Irish pub.An old man stood beside the puddle holding a stick with a string on the end and jiggled it up and down in the water.

A curious gentleman asked what he was doing.

‘Fishing,’ replied the old man.

‘Poor old fool’ thought the gentleman, so he invited the old man to have a drink in the pub.

Feeling he should start some conversation while they were sipping their whiskey, the gentleman asked,

‘And how many have you caught today?’

‘You’re the eighth.’

God Bless and keep reading
