Yo, yo! George Graham up on the miiiiiiiic!
‘All Arsenal fans would like to see new players right down the middle.
‘They need a new goalkeeper, a centre half and a defensive midfielder.
‘With all the talent they’ve got in midfield, they’re up there with the top teams in the league, playing attractive football when they’re in possession.
‘When they don’t have the ball, though, there are too many players who don’t want to win it back early enough.’
I felt relatively confident about the game yesterday. The weather was nothing short of stunning, the mood around the ground bubbled and Stoke at our place lose their thug touch around goal.
The line up was strong. The major talking point centred around the manager dropping Szecseny. I don’t see why it was even a conversation point. If ill discipline, newspaper arrogance and poor from isn’t enough to drop someone… you have to ask the point of having Ospina in the squad. You also have to ask how it can be possible for a player to be bigger than the team? Thankfully, Wenger made the right choice and we didn’t have to ask those questions. It was a big game for the Colombian, but jeez, he’s played in a World Cup against Brazil, I think he’s going to be fine against Peter Crouch and band of merry knuckle heads.
Oh good morning you sexy beasts.
ARSENAL STOKE DAY
I love days like this. At home, they’re a lot more bearable. Total scuzz bucket of a team now laden with a few ex La Masia players. Bojan will probably have a good game today. I imagine coming to The Emirates is a bit like heading to The Coliseum back in the day… you’d be showboating your ass off to win your freedom!
