Almost from the inception of Arseblog News, we’ve done an April Fool’s story every year. Some have been better than others, and while not everyone likes them, they’ve always been just a bit a fun.
Have they fooled people? Yes, yes they have. Usually because people forget it’s April 1st, or because it’s not April 1st where they are when they read it – we post them at midnight usually.
This year, we’re not doing one. It just feels like the timing is not right. We’ve all got enough to deal with on a daily basis, and while there’s always the need for entertainment and distraction, we can also just wait until next year when things are hopefully back to something approaching normality and we can make up something so ludicrous it’s almost believable … for a second or two.
In the meantime, we’re bringing you what little Arsenal news there is here as when it happens. We’re very aware that usually there’s a thriving community at Arseblog News discussing, debating, player rating and all the rest and that’s more or less dried up because of the shutdown of football.
Hopefully you’re all doing well wherever you are, that you and yours are keeping safe and well and healthy. Remember, the daily blog is still going over on arseblog.com, the podcasts are continuing as normal – with some extra episodes even, and you can see pictures of dogs on Instagram.
As much as possible we’ll do our best to keep that going. We understand it’s a tough time for many, so some measure of normality will help.
And if you are desperate for an April Fool’s, you can always go back in time and revisit previous years.
❤️ from all the Arseblog News team
