So we have 10 injured players, what a coincidence, Rosicky is injured again after we were told he’s back just two days ago and Bacary Sagna has personal problems, whatever that means.
I think we have the most injury prone players in the Premier league, you can’t tackle from behind, you can’t have your studs up, you can’t shoulder barge and you can’t thump people anymore, they even play on billiard table pitches, so how on earth do they get injured all the time?
We need to start signing players that are a little tougher, simple, this is ridiculous.
We will, I have no doubt field a full and fit compliment (minus full time crock RVP) all nicely ready for the plump Champions league tie against Milan, funny that eh!
We have a better chance of winning the FA Cup than the Champions league, but for whatever reason the boss doesn’t see it like that.
It saddens me because I think the spectacle of the FA cup is unmatched, the whole of Saturday, the TV coverage is amazing, the fans at the ground, everything, conversely the Champions league is played out on a Wednesday evening on one channel and that’s it.
The double has more cachet for me than the league or the European cup but we look like we are putting a side in that has no chance, the Carling cup semis all over again, very disappointing Arsene.
Onto the scandalous rise in season ticket prices, Pedro wanted me to talk this one through, we fail to see how they can justify it, we’ve spent nothing, income from TV has gone up significantly, we have over £70 million available to buy players, match revenue has tripled, and they don’t even pay dividends to shareholders, so why oh why do they need to put the prices up?
And we have to pay it up front in 2 weeks time, I think it’s nothing more than greedy pigs in the trough Arsenal, a greedy and shabby way to pay back the ‘full house every game’ fans.
Shame on you, and all this on the same day that we find out you are offering a staggering £33 million to a 20 year old, tied in to another 8 year contract that means absolutely nothing if the player wants out, as Thierry Henry so adeptly demonstrated. No reflection on you Cesc, we all love you but £33 million, what do the rest of the team think about that?
Some seriously good comments yesterday Grovers, committed to the cause and in your own way very romantic with late night activity blogs coming in from Bud, Odub and Mike, I hope your evenings ended well.
