So Stuart Pearce, England under 21’s man at the helm, confidently says Theo will make the Euro 2008 team, if we qualify tonight.
Well that’s a big if! I fully expect this shower of under achievers to get a result against an already qualified Croatia team, that has played way above itself, thanks of course to new Arsenal sensation, Eduardo.
Yes it’s down to Arsenal. You knew that.
If McClaren doesn’t play ‘has been’ Beckham and completely useless fat boy ‘Mrs Robinson’ we should go through, so we at least have something to look forward to next summer, and by then we could have Richards and Green playing in the Arsenal team by then.
I hope he brings Carlos Vela back from Salamanca and Djourou back from Birmingham in January, they are both great prospects and January is when it starts getting tough, what with the FA cup, Champions league and hopefully the Carling cup still to play for.
On the blog front, yesterday we had a record number of hits, got top story on http://www.arsenalnews.net and made the http://www.wordpress.com top footballing story of the day, so thanks for your support, if there’s anything you would like us to add, please post and we’ll see what we can do.
On Friday we are having our first guest blog from our new best friends at clockenders.com so that should be fun.
We are trialling a 15 year old Brazilian wonderkid goal keeper, but like all the young ‘uns, seeing him could be a long way off, I would prefer to see a
world class prospect playing for us right now, we do it with the outfield players, I see no reason why we shouldn’t do it with a keeper.
The feeling was split on whether Richards will be joining us. One blogger suggested Richards requested an Arsenal get out clause in his new contract, I hope you’re right, he would be a welcome signing. Modric, I’m
not sure would add so much? £30 million, really?!
Velosa keeps cropping up, and I have it on good authority that although he plays in defensive midfield he prefers centre back, but it’s all speculation
and only January will tell us, and January’s not talking to November at this moment in time.
Try and enjoy tonight if you can make yourself watch.
