Mikel Silvestre made his long awaited comeback from his long awaited injury against the chavs (rub-a-dubs) last night and played quite well, so we now have options at the back, or more than we already had so that is welcome news whatever you may think of him.
Adebayor has not been fit enough to play for us but he is travelling to his country’s World cup qualifier against Cameroon, let’s hope if he plays, he doesn’t get injured with a silly tackle against team mate Alexandre Song. We need them both…
That’s the team news for today, I watched the kids last night and thought Kyle Bartley played well, maybe he can step up next season, I doubt it, but at least he’s from the English school of centre-halfs and maybe he’s what we’ve been lacking at the back.
Robin the boy wonder feels we are becoming unbeatable again and with a 17 match premiership unbeaten run maybe we are about to go on another great streak, 17 down 33 to go, who knows eh!
It’s a real shame we can’t use Arshavin in the champions league but I feel having him in the squad is almost as good, it lifts the team and it keeps them on their toes, I feel now is a good time to start to blood the likes of Ramsey and Wilshere, they aren’t being used in the reserves, so maybe they are being earmarked for games like City and Boro.
It does make me laugh when I hear about Villla’s slump in form, I remember when they were winning games they should have lost and no bugger said a word, so I think their luck is running out and their results flattered them, the only game I saw that they deserved to win was the one against us at the Grove, when we were at our worst.
They also talk about the fact they have played with only 17 men, lucky then aren’t they, that shows they know each other well and they have been charmed with injuries, only one in my book, Larsson, I remember when we had 10 out. Blimey we still have Ade, Cesc, Rosicky, Walcott and Eduardo out and they would all walk into our team tomorrow.
We have a slight chance of landing the premiership, but if we keep winning, who knows? One thing is for sure the confidence is soaring and that can only be good for the two cups we are still in.
I still believe we can do something this year and hope he keeps sending out teams to win and not just get a result, we play so much better when we attack, we know how to attack and we seem to be learning how to defend, we are only conceding to sloppy goals and that sure as hell beats being dominated at the back, hopefully those days have long gone.
Have a great day Grovers only 11 days to go!
