Bendtner starts for Arsenal!

by & filed under Uncategorized.

So it’s confirmed, Bendtner starts tonight, what an opportunity for him, he must be the most experienced 19 year old in football, banging them in for Denmark has given him a confidence rarely seen in young players nowadays.

Let’s hope he does it tonight, I think Eduardo will partner him and Theo will be held back as an impact player, also he did get a knock against Wigan so he’ll use him sparingly.

No Gallas, so it’s King Kolo tonight, I expect Gilberto back with Cesc but I would not be surprised to see Flamini there either.

It could also be the game for Rosicky to start center midfield, we have so many options it’s frightening.

It’s going to be a tough game tonight and all we need is a draw, but with kids, with lots to prove, expect to see us go at them, and that’s why I think Flamini and Diarra will play a role this evening.

It will be great to see Cesc back and out to impress the Spanish and show them what they’ve been missing.

Don’t take any notice of their dismal form, don’t forget it’s a cup game and they’re a cup team, as the stats said, last time we played them it was fairly even, only we scored the goals, how many times has that happened to us over the years?

I expect us to be ruthless tonight and they will come at us, which suits us perfectly.

Some good late night blogging yesterday guys, the Richards and Anelka debate was going strong and good points were made by you all, unfortunately we’ll have to wait until January to see if any of you were right, or tonight (Senderos) to see if any of you were wrong!

I can’t wait for the game, I’m looking forward to the pre-match talk as much as the game, why? Because they all love Arsenal on the box at the moment and it’s been a long time coming.

Have a great night, nay a glory night Grover’s!


Chavs gutted to see Gallas score for Arsenal…again

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Chelsea must rue the day they paid us £5mil to take Captain Billy boy Gallas off their hands in exchange for our second choice left back, Cashley Cole.
Good bit of work that Kenyon, they must have also felt sick that young £2mil midfielder Diarra also had a blinder.

We were frustrated by having 11 men behind the ball against Wigan for 80 minutes, but last season that would have been a draw, or worse, Billy boy
just doesn’t give in does he? Not only that but he scored a fabulous goal again, I was one of the detractors when he made him captain, I still think
Gilberto’s treatment was shabby, but Gallas is just awesome, so I for one admit I was wro… wron… wrong, there I said it!

Big day tomorrow and expect to see a few changes, Seville lost at the weekend to a holiday resort named Mallorca.

I think he will bring Senderos, Bendtner and Eduardo to the starting line up but otherwise keep the same team that beat Wigan plus of course Cesc.

As far as transfers are concerned I can’t see him bringing anyone in, we still need a winger on the left, but who? I hope he brings in Anelka rather
than another African hopeful as I think a bit of experience will be useful for the run in, but unless he surprises us with a Kakaesque signing, I
really can’t see any movement.

I do expect Lehmann to move on and maybe Gilberto, but I hope not in Gilberto’s case, so at best he’ll sign a keeper.

I thought Green did well against Top4tottenham, but his howler against them for the goal has made me a little cooler toward him this morning.

With three tough away games coming up in the league we need Hleb, Cesc, Flamini and Robin back sooner rather than later, but I expect Cesc to star
in his native Spain.

Newcastle and Middlesbrough are very poor sides so I expect maximum points there but Villa are finding a bit of form so we need all our boys back for that one.

It’s as well we’re not playing Everton and by the time we do I expect them to be brought down to earth by someone.

Ade needs to work on his finishing but I feel that when boy wonder returns, so will Ade’s goals.

Onwards upwards Grovers.


King Billy takes us clear

Well what a relief that was! We had six players out but we still won, what is it about us and shit teams, we did this with Sunderland.

We really lack a finisher, Ade will probably explode someday, I know that, but if we want to win the league this season, I feel we need to get an out and out finisher, like an Anelka, or indeed, Anelka.

We dominated for large spells but couldn’t finish, so thank goodness for another captainesque performance from Gallas yesterday.

Good to see Rosicky on the score sheet, I think Bendtner made a difference when he arrived, but I would like to see Wenger make his changes a little sooner next time, we know they’re needed, he knows they are and when he does it, it makes the difference, I just wish he would do it sooner. For my nerves!

I am beginning to lose patience with Eboue, I don’t think he gives us much, a bit like Song at the moment, he doesn’t do a lot wrong, but he doesn’t do a lot right either.

Still we won and ManU lost, I can now read all the papers and be happy, I reckon we can win our next three premier league games, Robin will be back by then and hopefully we’ll be the ones to get fat Sam the sack.

Not a lot to say today but not a lot of people read the weekend blogs either.

Next up Seville, let hope we can win that one and top the group.

Have a nice weekend Grover’s and see you all tomorrow.
