So after seeing that clip on Cana yesterday I’m convinced he’s what we need, tougher and more determined than Barry, Veloso, De La Red and Alonso, I’ve re thought, we don’t need skill in there, we have that in abundance, what we need is a nutter, someone who wins tackles like he does, heads the ball like he does and has a pathological desperation to win the ball, he’s the one, I have totally changed my mind.
Stuart Robson, the Richard Keys of Arsenal TV got his come uppance yesterday, a fan said,
‘How can you be a pundit when you said last week you’re not an Arsenal fan?’
Robson wanted to die! Then this guy said what happens when West Ham get their own channel, will you go there then? Ha, ha, ha! Robson then went onto say that maybe Wenger’s not after a centerback because he thinks he has that already in Song, interesting.
His choice for defensive midfield was Inler.
Gibbs last night looked every bit as good as Traore, he played at left back and was very, very impressive, as was Wilshere, Ramsey, Simpson, Barazite, Walcott, Vela, Watt and Djourou.
Theo should be used as a winger, like Bobby, instinctive with a shot, he’s too small to lead the line, but will be an awesome winger, him right and Nasri left. We are again being linked with Robert Green, I have to say I really like Fabianski, but he’s way too young to be a first choice keeper, Green wouldn’t settle for being second string so unless he (or Given) was brought in as numero uno, then I would keep what we have, Mannone is just not good enough.
I still think we need a centre back, Djourou will make it and if Phil cuts out his wild lashes he might make it as well, but we still ship too many goals for my liking, Wenger needs to bring in a defensive coach and listen to him, we have a need for a big sod like Vidic, either that or bring in Cana to stop them getting that far, or at least make them fear getting that far.
The boss has already said he won’t take the Carling cup seriously, well I don’t see the point in keep blooding the youngsters only to see them lose at the final hurdle, it’s not a pissing contest is it, I mean what are we saying, our kids are better than yours? What does that prove?
For me we should want to win everything we go in for, the spuds winning the Carling last year was a joke, that was ours to lose and we of course, did, I would sooner go out in the first game than suffer that humiliation again, same with the FA Cup, but again, I see no reason we can’t go for them all, like the chavs and the mancs do.
I’m not sure what last night achieved, save our youth team beat Huddersfield, and your point is? We should have played more first teamers.
Tomorrow will see the emergence of the first eleven with Cesc back to orchestrate proceedings, let’s just hope we avoid injuries and beat Ajax, after all FC Twenty beat them to set up the match with us, so it will serve as a benchmark if nothing else.
Have a great day today Grovers, tomorrow we dine in hell.
