do NOT hurt him, Patrice
So it's Monday night and you know what that means: I'm ridiculously tired and I have a headache! In a completely unrelated matter, it also means that this week's edition of Fusillade is out. So, uh, here it is.
Obviously we talked quite a bit about the Manchester United loss, because, you know, if we didn't there wouldn't have been much to talk about. As it turns out Michael Owen didn't end up playing nearly as big a role as we had all hoped. We talked at great length about the performance of young winger and budding cult leader Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and what it might mean for some of the more experienced players in the club for the rest of the season (or at least until Gervinho comes back from the African Cup of Nations). We also have a frank discussion about the booing that accompanied the Oxlade-Chamberlain/Arshavin substitution, which is almost entirely serious, in a minor departure for us.
Two notes: First of all, Paul wasn't on because of family obligation-type stuff (not for more nefarious reasons). Secondly, I apologize about the sound quality. I don't know what was going on, I guess our Internet connections weren't as good as they usually are. I DID WHAT I COULD, OKAY?
We didn't get to any questions this week, but remember that if you have things you'd like us to answer or talk about, shoot us an email at fusilladecast(AT)gmail(DOT)com, and we will do our best to get to it. No really, I promise.
