Ben Arfa scored on his full debut yesterday against Everton and we won the game 1-0. We deserved the 3 points after putting in a solid team performance over the 90 minutes. Ben Arfa walked away with all the plaudits after his fantastic strike just before half time. This player really is top class, and has to be the best player we have had the club! Sign him up properly asap for me! The new Laurent Robert in my eyes – yes I was a massive Robert fan! And to be totally shallow he is gorgeous as well . . . yes I shall now go back under a rock haha.
The new home England kit had a picture released earlier this week and was worn for the first time last night in the European Championship qualifier against Bulgaria which was won 4-0 by England with a hat trick from Jermain Defoe and a first international goal from Adam Johnson. The picture released might be seen as quite controversial as it does not have a lot of big name players in.
Containing a couple of the senior squad and a mix of younger players. Very disappointing that they did not get a couple of the actual women players as well! The blue shorts and blue trimming on the shirts make it look different to the last home kit, but that is the main difference.
