It struck me the other day that an anagram of Andre Santos is Satan Drones. Then I worried that the dark lord of the underworld had sent the Brazilian, via Turkey, to Arsenal, to use the club as a conduit for evil.
Then I stopped worrying because it would be pretty damn cool if that happened. Of course life being life it would end badly. The devil cannot exist without god, and as god is omnipotent he always wins the end but we’d have some fun along the way.
The chances are, however, that Andre Santos is just a Brazlian football player and not one of Beelzebub’s spooks, because he’s spent 3 months out injured and surely with all his cool powers and shit, Lucifer would not let one of his men suffer unduly. Unless he’s such a twat that he even makes life awful for those who serve him.
Either way, the point is that Andre is back in action, and last night played an hour for the reserves in their 2-0 win over West Brom.
princeofdarkness.com arsenal.com, he said it was great to back and he was looking forward to playing a part in Arsenal’s crucial run in.
“”I am very happy to be playing again because it has been a long time,” he said. “I feel good and I hope to be able to play next week at Everton.
“It has been a difficult time because my ankle was in pain and I didn’t feel good, but now it feels good again and I’m very happy to be back.
“I’m really pleased the team have been doing so well. The displays have been strong, the spirit is good and we have 10 games left so we must finish well.”
Arseblog News’ youth correspondent, Jeorge Bird, gave Santos a healthy 7 out 10 for his performance, saying, “Broke forward effortlessly and impressed with his enthusiasm before being withdrawn.”
With Kieran Gibbs now fit and Andre on his way back, it augurs well for the future, regardless of whether or not they’re operatives of the underworld.
