Yep that’s my prediction, we lost our record to a pedestrian Liverpool side last night, it has to be the shortest held record in Champions league football, our kids will want it back, where better to do it than in Prague.
Okay we need to get the team right first and this is the team we should go with.
Sagna Hoyte Gallas Traore (with Clichy and Gilberto as options)
Walcott Denilson Diarra Diaby (with Gilberto and Eboue as options)
Bendtner Eduardo (with Ade as an option)
I know I have Gilberto in two possible roles but that’s because I really, really don’t rate Song. Is it me? What do you people think?
I believe this team will get at them from the off, is young enough to go for it and good enough to get the 9 goals we need to have any chance of addressing the ‘great’ and ‘lucky’ balance once more.
When we got 7 everyone said ‘yeah but look at the team we played’ I haven’t read one article this morning that said that about Liverpool, I can’t call them the scousers any more as red nose said they weren’t.
We did Fergie yesterday and the simple way to sum up his criticism is he himself isn’t English, so cannot have an opinion. Wenger makes his stand on the matter very clear here.
Liverpool and Spurs planning new grounds irritates me a bit, as Liverpool will have the option of 74.000 seats, I hope we have that too as we could most certainly fill the ground, getting in and out though is another matter.
I think Wenger has a real problem with Rosicky as he always seems to be injured, maybe we should get a left winger in January as I’m not sure Rosicky will ever be a regular, shame as he’s so gifted, but we can’t play him, lose him for 2 then wait three more for him to be good, then he gets injured again.
I sincerely hope Wenger doesn’t get tempted to buy English as he feels under pressure, there really isn’t an English player I would want, save maybe Joe Cole, but then he’s like Rosicky and besides Chelsea would never sell him to us.
I hope we use our third kit tonight as I really don’t like the white kit, if it was red and white (pardon the pun) maybe, but I never liked the red current kit, when we had white shorts against Sheffield it grew on me a tad, but I prefer red or yellow.
If we can get through tonight without any injuries we should get 6 points from the next two and then be ready for the Chelsea game, and for the first time since Abramovich came I think we can do them.
Happy blogging Grovers.
