Gallas, Diaby and Arshavin are all out for the game at Stoke one wonders who will get the nod. Effectively the spine of the team has gone missing.
Here’s what I’d do.
Eboue Campbell Song Vermaelen
Ramsey Cesc Nasri
Rosicky Bendtner Eduardo
Here’s what he’ll do
Sagna Campbell Vermaelen Clichy
Eboue Cesc Song
Walcott Bendtner Eduardo
To be honest I wouldn’t have a cow with either team, I would just like to experiment a bit with mine. I just hope neither team sees Denilson.
Cesc says he wants his future sorted out before the world cup so he can concentrate on Spain with no distractions, said Marca.
Sure he did! However indulge me on this one, I was trying to imagine the scenario if Cesc should choose to walk away from his 4 year contract this summer, these are the possible outcomes.
1) Gazidas would add another 10 people to his already overstaffed staff.
2) Use the money to pay off our la, la, la loan, yeah, the one that never seems to get paid off even though we make loads and spend none.
3) Pay some decent bonuses to management (see RBS).
4) Buy 5 – 17 year olds and pay them massive wages to buy their loyalty.
5) Buy a decent player or two with a minimum age of 24.
I don’t think we will sell Cesc, if we did, then Wenger would follow him out the door as project youth was built around Cesc and that would mean failure.
Me? I would say Cesc, when you signed the contract extension and received a healthy pay rise, the contract worked for you then, did it not? So that’s it then, we can talk about you leaving in another 3 years, you’ll be worth more, you would have honoured your contract and at 25 you’ll be way too old for us anyway, so everyone wins.
I don’t think he’ll go, he’s loyal and he knows what happens to players that leave the Arsenal.
What has happened to Arsenal, when playing a team like Stoke becomes a tough fixture, I could understand if they spent gazillions on players, and I could even understand if they were coached by Gus Hiddink, but they aren’t, we have Arsene Wenger, the worlds greatest scouting network, the best young players on the planet, and we are mentally strong, yet it seems getting a result against Tony Pulis and Stoke would be up there with winning the Carling Cup.
What happened to the EPL pecking order Arsene. Someone needs to put the faces of Rory Delap and Ricardo Fuller on the blackboard and say to our team, ‘are these chumps better than you’ ‘Well, are they?’
This team of clowns dumped our youth team out of the FA Cup, yes I know they beat the northern chavs, but they were down to 10 men and it did go to extra time, but blimey, are we Arsenal or are we Wigan?
This message is for you boys, rectum, a new one and tear them, put those into some sort of order and fulfill your destiny tomorrow. We need this win and we are owed this win to address the insult they laid at our door in the FA Cup, this team will soon be in the championship, let’s do our best to help them on that journey.
I’m writing this stirring post a day early as tomorrow you’ll all be too busy and too focussed, good luck men, we are depending on you.
To finish off the headline and the question was what’s our plan B? WELL THE ANSWER IS, WE DON’T HAVE ONE!
Have a great day Grovers, at least we’ll get to see the game live tomorrow and revenge is that dish best served cold.
P.S. If you’d like to see Arsenal spank Hull, I have two spares… e-mail in!
