Where I sit…
Arsene Wenger hit back at critics regarding the two day break he gave players in the week. I’m not sure why, probably because the insinuation has been there that he burns players out and he has been doing so most of his career, albeit with more success in the early years.
‘It’s not necessarily fatigue, I don’t see why that’s suddenly a problem. We’ve player without a break since December, we don’t have to justify that, it’s unbelievable. We are in a society where everybody wants to control everything. It is unusual? We are entitled to do unusual things.”
There’s not exactly an abundance of news flying around today, needless to say, I will craft something for your eyes regardless.
Alvaro Morata. Arsene Wenger is apparently looking to make the young Spaniard his number one target this summer. I’m not sure what the cost will work out at, but it looks like he’s the man the manager wants to spear head his attack next season. So no expensive superstar because it doesn’t look like there are many of them about, instead, he’s opting for young talent so he can craft him into a mega star.
The hilarious mess that is going on at United continued last night as they took their easy draw in Olympiacos and ballsed it up with a horrendous 2-0 away losss from home. I mean, honestly, there’s expecting United to mess up, then there’s David Moyes surprising and delighting with the most unexpected horror show of a result.
