Update: After reading this brilliant post by Arseblogger making a mockery of the claims made by Phil Brown and the article entitled “I’d rather Cesc had knocked Brian out” by Tim Sherwood, I’ve decided to reneg on my opinion to refrain from commenting on the spitting furore.
Instead I’d like to say this: I do not believe that Fabregas spat at the Hull assistant manager and, like Arseblogger, I think he deserves our full support in order to minimise the amount of speculative slanderous exposure he gets in the media. He has made it clear that he did not spit and never has done and I think we owe it to the captain of the club to support him in this instance.
We may got a little lucky with William Gallas’ winner on Tuesday night but the accusations made by Brown about Fabregas are unfair and in my opinion he should absolutely be punished by the FA as result.
That is all. I’ll speak to you tomorrow.

There’s virtually nothing going at the moment that doesn’t involve the Cesc Fabregas-Brian Horton spitting incident. Personally I don’t want to get involved in the speculation – I don’t really see the point in adding fuel to the media fire – and given that there’s nothing else worth mentioning I’ve decided to have the night off.
A couple of beers will certainly do the trick.
Have your say on the spitting incident (if you must) or Arsenal v Hull by leaving a comment.
