Good morning Grovers! We have plenty to churn through today. The Olympics might be over, but the football season is nearly upon us. Why the hell there are internationals going on is totally beyond me. The people running the game seem to have not one ounce of common sense when it comes to scheduling. There is absolutely no need for a friendly now and it’s totally detrimental to most sides preparation…. and don’t even get me started on another African Cup of Nations. How many do they need? What is the purpose of another one? How long does Africa need this tournament to promote prosperity?
I watched the game full of anticipation and to be honest a little excitement. Our new boys started with Cazorla, Giroud and Podolski all looking very impressive.
Before all the AKB’s get too excited, what Wenger has finally done is what people like me have been begging for, for years. Buying some grown ups, getting what we need and spending our budget.
