That appears to be the consensus of opinion from notable footballing pundits such as Bobby Robson, Matt Le Tissier, Lee Dixon and the great Charlie Nicholas.
I expect a strong Arsenal side out today with all of them fit, it will depend if he risks them all and my guess is he won’t, but they’ll be there in the squad.
The tricky one is whether he starts with Diaby or Rosicky, for me Diaby, more imposing, stronger and likes a shot. The other side is whether he play Diarra, Hleb or Eboue, I hope he plays Diarra with Hleb coming on as a sub, but I suspect it’ll be Eboue, and that is a risk as that dirty bastard Mikel will be trying to bait him and get him sent off.
Central midfield, no brainer, Cesc and Flamini.
Back four no change and Robin and Ade up top, Theo’s injured so Bendtner and Eduardo on the bench with Hleb, Senderos or Gilberto with Lehmann.
I saw a picture of ex gooner Freddie in the Sunday Times this morning and I had to laugh, Freddie said he left West Ham to win things and went to a club that had more ambition, well Freddie you can join the list of deluded Arsenal greats that thought the same, Aka Patrick, Thierry and Edu, so eat your heart out mate and enjoy today!
Finally there were a lot of gay slurs in the comments section yesterday and yes I know they were tongue in cheek, but I have to say, there were a lot of cracking retorts so well done Grover’s, for not only being the best bloggers, but the wittiest too.
To re-iterate on those points, it’s not gay to love men in red, it’s normal. It’s not gay to love those men in red more than you love you other half’s, it’s normal. And finally it’s not gay to love the subs either, they’re all part of the same team and it’s normal!
Have a great day Grover’s and keep ‘em crossed.
