The end of Arsenal News Blog… for now

Posted by James Dall on 20, August 2007

The title says it all, really. Rather than give you some lengthy fable about why I am pulling my blog entries, I shall just tell you the facts. I did some work experience for (italicised for effect) and they offered me a job. I start in a week. There is no way I can continue the blog while working there – due to time and wordery in my contract. Depending on how long I am at depends on when the next blog will be. I just hope we have a terrific season (and Jens bucks his ideas up).

There are of course billions of Arsenal blogs out there (around five are actually decent though) for us all to read, plus my previous arcticles will still remain on the site – you can search for these, until your heart’s content, at the top right of the page or use the archives. One of my favourites is where I rip into Richard Keys – he is a willy.

Thank you for popping on for a daily browse and leaving the odd comment. I have really enjoyed doing the blog and to be honest, it is quite sad writing this note of leave.

Cheerio, oh, and COME ON YOU GUNNERS!!!

    Shame – yours was one of the better Arsenal blogs, but completely understandable with your move to Sky Sports. Good luck. Resist the temptation to give the clueless Keys a slap !

    I hope Richard Keys has forgiven you. Good luck in your new job mate.

    Congratulations or commiserations? At least there will be 1 gooner at Sky!
    Will miss this blog. All best

    Never contributed but I did enjoy the read, good luck at Sky and try and find out why Keysie is always fiddling with his hands as if his mind is elsewhere (Mars maybe).

    Good luck; I guess it’s so much to do with your TH14 departure, so much you’ve been desperate to see Henry stay though!
    Be our spy at SKY anyway.

    “I know so many things have happend at the club, DD has gone, karaonke wants Arsenal, henry has gone, Freddy, and even Jeremy have stepped out. But on top is Arsene not signing a contract. So for now you are an Arsenal blgger may be dont know what you will be doing in the future”.

    Or may be you started blogging for West ham, Barca, or Portsmouth, Inter, Good luck mate I wish i could be writting here while you are out. Cheers

    If possible I would like to sponsor your website with a text link ad. I would need the link ad for at least a period of 6 months.

    I have chosen to contact you after reviewing many Arsenal related websites and drawing up a list of those sites I felt offered the most to their visitors.

    If your are interested please reply with how much (UK £ Sterling) you would require for such a service.

  27. Wow! What a job you got at

    Too bad seeing you leaving.

    But glad that Arsene and his boys are doing great job we all gooners can be proud of.

    Hope Arsenal can end this season with a treble… FA Cup, PremierLeague and Champions League.
