Cesc in Hleb out

by & filed under Uncategorized.

It’s increasingly difficult to work out who’s still injured and who’s coming back, but I think Cesc will be back to face fat Sam but Diaby, Robin and Hleb are out for a spell still.

I think I would play Gilberto and Cesc together, I think Gilberto will handle the Viduka threat better than Diarra and Viduka is the only one that can hurt us.

Joey Barton will be given his thug orders, so someone needs to give him a dig early, let him know we’re there, if you get my drift.

This has to be a 4-4-2 night and Eduardo should get a run out, this would also suit Bendtner, don’t forget him and Denilson scored against them in the Carling cup, or was it Diaby?

If we go for them from the off we’ll stuff them, I don’t want to be going through it like I was on Saturday evening, win early I say, or do I mean pray!

I watched ManU play Fulham last night, why can’t Fulham play like that when we play them?

Good to see the lads giving their salary to charity for the Chelsea game, I wonder if that includes their win bonus?

I just hope we have all our players back for the Chelsea game, I’m also training my booing lips for the prodigal son’s return, oh how I hate him.

I think we’ll feed off these wins and to think we’ve still only dropped 6 points all season, I think we dropped 12 last November.

Good blogging day yesterday with some worthwhile comments.

Nobody commented on Samir Nasri though, I hope we sign either Richards or a world class center back, we have enough kids and Djourou didn’t inspire me when he gave Spurs a penalty on Sunday.

One day to go!

Adebayor speaks to Le-Grove

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Adebayor answered the questions over his ability to score more often emphatically against a good Villa side.

His actions spoke louder than words, hence the headline, don’t think the players don’t read this blog site, they do!

Remember Villa were fancied by the bookies, fancied by the pundits and playing at home.

Ade showed that he can score with his head when we need it most, I did question him on Saturday and from your comments I understand he was being tongue in cheek, well that’s why we have a comments section, so keep them coming.

Arsenal.com are, as usual, behind with injury update news, all I know is Hleb got a gash from the Carew tackle and may be out for a few games but Cesc though, should be back for the Newcastle  game. Good news indeed.

I thought Diarra gave the ball away a lot and that Gilberto coming on made us more stable at the back of the midfield.

I read that robin is still not fit, which by the time he returns will be three months out, add that to 5 months last term leaves me to believe our
Robin could be the Dutch Michael Owen, brilliant but not there a lot, that being the case we need to look at our options.

I’m saying nothing other than the facts, Grover’s please have an opinion on that, am I being paranoid?

Watching Chelsea at the weekend, we could beat them with our Carling cup side, John Terry looks more and more like the ordinary player I think he is.
Bring them on!

Fat Sam looks like the bent fat bastard we all know he is and hopefully stuffing Newcastle will see him picking up his P45, so 3 points there will do us nicely.

December we know is pivotal and so far so good, trouble is, everyone else is picking up points as well, so we need to keep winning.

I read Lehmann is not only blanking Almunia he also doesn’t do the pre match warm up with him.

What is the matter with Wenger, why does he tolerate this? time to say goodbye to the mad German before he starts to undermine the team spirit.

So Ade if your reading this and I know you are, keep banging them in or I’ll rip off my shirt and be off!

Hleb more important than Cesc, Wenger thoughts and Arsenal to get Fat Sam sack

by & filed under Uncategorized.

Whenever I have to listen to an Arsenal game on the radio, its always a shocker! I have never felt so panicked as I did whilst listening to the second half of the game last night! Every Villa attack felt like a certain goal! It was horrible!

However, when I watched the extended highlights on MotD, it didn’t seem so bad.

Bastard commentators!

I won’t do a review of the game as there are plenty of people out there who had access to Sultana.

What I will say is that the game was a real test of character. The type of game ManU go 1-2 up in and you expect them to hold on. Arsenal are showing that kind of Championship winning mentality.

Villa really tested us in the second half and we showed a lot of bottle (and had a bit of luck) to ride the storm. Almunia made some important saves and dealt with some tough crosses from the excellent Ashley young (I think this is why we don’t by English ). Did anyone notice how MoTD glossed over the Ashley Young dive? Imagine if that was Eboue!

We also didn’t allow the 47 year old John Carew to ruin our night. The sooner that big fucker pops both of his achiles and retires the better!

I thought the Flamster was excellent. He has clearly been taking rage lessons from RvP! He truly smashed that ball into the net for our equaliser! I also thought Hleb was brilliant. The way he got just enough on the pass out wide to start our equalising move was brilliant. He really put his body on the line. Lets hope his injury isn’t that seriously, because I would go as far to say that he is more important than Cesc at the moment. The players had some nice things to say about him as well.

Arsene Wenger was also pleased with the team, he had this to say,

“We were brilliant and resilient. In the first half we played some absolutely amazing football.

“We moved the ball quickly, were accurate with our passing in short spaces and made it difficult for Villa.

“In the second half, the physical contribution from Villa and the fact some of our players dropped off a little bit, allowed them back in.

“I felt at the end of the first half we seemed as if we weren’t right on top of things and that made it difficult”

“But this is a big result. Because of the belief in the Villa side after their recent good run, we needed something special.

“Maybe in the past, games like that have been our Achilles heel. But we have improved, have more experience and resilience and we panic less.”

Hard to disagree with him? Wenger talks here about loaning out some of the youngsters to Norwich.

Jens Lehmann needs to go. He is acting like a child and I think he is trying to become disruptive. Get rid of him and either promote Fabianski or buy a new keeper.

Our next game is Newcastle, and hopefully we can bang the final nail in Fat Sams coffin! Oh how the tables have turned you fat Walrus Cunt! Mwhahahahah!

I’m off to buy some Sunday papers and immerse myself in glory!

Happy Sunday Grovers!
