I don’t want to talk about the Arsenal game, we all feel exactly the same about that game. We went through that game today on the training ground. We are not happy! It is much better to start the focus on the QPR game this weekend. It’s no secret that we are struggling in the league, but we have to keep the focus in the right place or this is going to be difficult.

It’s the Sami National Day today and that’s nice. Us who are both Sami and Norwegian are so lucky that we have two national days, and of course we have to celebrate that with pomp and ceremony. It is a bit lonely for me to celebrate alone here in England, but I have saved me some Sami goodies that I have enjoyed today,  and now it’s dried reindeer hearts on the menu.
