UK Staff Writer February 26, 2015 Comments Comment Bubble Icon. ArsenalFanTV regular Claude has become something of an Internet celebrity after his past rants have gotten the heavy Vine treatment. However, we're not sure we've ever seen him as angry as this. The Gunners' miserable 3-1 Champions League defeat to Monaco on Wednesday night sparked an epic rant from the man dubbed " Arsenal's angriest fan," but we suspect he summed up the feelings of many supporters.
Arsene Wenger and especially striker Olivier Giroud are the two men that get the bulk of Claude's ire. Vine producers should have a field day with his one. Saint-Etienne boss Claude Puel says William Saliba is set to be an instant hit with Arsenal after returning to the Gunners following his one-year loan . Arsenal paid big bucks for the the highly-rated 19-year-old when securing his services from Saint-Etienne in a £27million deal last July but he remained with the Ligue 1 outfit for another season. However, that loan has finished after the French top flight was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic and Saliba now has the chance to link up with his new teammates at Arsenal. Due to the terms of the loan deal, Saliba won’t be allowed to play any of the Gunners’ remaining ten Premier League fixtures although he will be able to take part in training. But when he does finally get the chance to pull on the Arsenal shirt, the man who has watched his progress this season says the teenager can make an immediate impact.
Puel, who had spells in charge at Southampton and Leicester before becoming coach at Saint-Etienne, knows what’s needed to flourish in the Premier League and believes Saliba has all the qualities to quickly establish himself as a regular in Arsenal’s often maligned defence. Speaking to The Athletic , Puel said: “He is a fantastic player. “He is a young player but with a lot of maturity in his play. “It will be hard for us without him but I think it is a fantastic opportunity for Arsenal. “I think they need a good centre-back and have done for some time, and I think William is the right player. “I think he can play all the time in the first team at Arsenal.” Saliba, who signed what was reported to be a five-year contract with the Gunners in 2019, had made just 12 appearances in Ligue 1 before the French season was halted after 28 games. Blazing on a Budget: 11 Tips for Conserving Weed and Still Getting High. Unfortunately, the cannabis coffers aren’t always overflowing for most of us. To quote Boston George’s father from Blow, “ Sometimes you’re flush, and sometimes you’re bust.” Whether you’re between jobs or between dealers, it’s worth knowing how to best conserve your weed when resources are tight. We put together this guide to blazing on a budget to help you extend the life expectancy of your stash. As much as we love joints—they’re our personal favorite way to smoke—they’re horrible from an herb conservation standpoint. Every swirl of smoke that spirals off of the cherry and into the sky? That’s wasted weed, because every second that joint burns and your lips aren’t locked on it, Mother Nature is bogarting your bud. If you just love to smoke joints and can’t bear to part with them, here are three tips to help make your weed last: avoid sparking up in high winds, roll regular size papers, and opt for a pinner roll instead of a cone-shaped cannon. When smoking at home, using a quality 4-piece grinder is a smart move. Finely ground herb is preferable for all smoking styles, whether you’re vaping, rolling a joint, or packing a bong. This is because a fine grind produces slow, even-burning bowls. Plus, that kief collection will be a life-saver when your stash runs out—it’s like an insurance policy on your supply! Of course, if you’re on the move, a grinder can be impractical, in which case a Grinder Card will also help you conserve cannabis in a low-profile format. The snap bowl is a must-have for a bong smoker who is trying to conserve their weed. Bigger bong bowls are meant to be “cornered,” which means a smoker can torch a section of the bowl and leave “greens” for the next person. On the other side of the spectrum, a snap bowl is personal-sized.
No need to order an XL-pizza when a slice will do, right? Buy a snap-sized bowl from your local smoke shop, and pretty soon you’ll understand why some bong smokers swear by these babies—they’re compact, powerful, and effective. This is our preferred method for smoking on the go while trying to conserve weed. Not only does the one-hitter pack a surprising punch for such a small and simple smoking device, but it’s also the most reasonably priced pipe you can buy. Not to mention the fact that metal one-hitters are virtually indestructible, so you don’t have to worry about breaking an expensive glass piece on a sidewalk or rocky trail. The size of a nug doesn’t matter—it’s the density that counts. That said, nug size can be misleading, and the best way to figure out exactly how much weed you have is by pre-grinding your flower.
Especially when you’re nearing the end of your stash, grinding up that flower will help you better gauge how much is left in your arsenal. Carb pipes have little thumb holes on the side of the bowl that may seem useful, but can cause you to burn more herb than necessary for each hit. Direct-inject pipes ensure that all of the smoke hits you where it counts, and none of it swirls stupidly out of a hole on the side.
