So we're firmly in the grasp of another interlull, which used to be a time full of fear and consternation for most Arsenal supporters. Instead, now, it is a time of miracles.

MIRACLES, I say, for Lo, Abou Vassiriki Diaby hath SCORED a GOAL of most opportune timing for the land of FRANCE during their qualifying match for the World Cup against the fair-skinned lake peoples of that fabled arboreal land FINLAND. Abou Diaby, who once was hamstrung by a VILLAIN of most call-center-y talent by the dread name of SMITH from parts north and east in the fair land of ALBION.
