So I am doing the match report because Pedro went to the dark side, yes that’s right, he went to Twickenham, I said on here before he was beginning to worry me, what next, cricket?
Okay you all know what happens when I do match reports, I lay into the bad ones, praise the good ones and rip the team selection. Today will be very different!
After a nervy start and an huge flappy shirt tugging screw up from Almunia, he redeemed himself by saving a well placed penalty from Martins and the whole team that started went on to play beautiful football, granted it could have been a different score at half time but if it wasn’t for Taylor and Harper they would most certainly have been 4 down.
We then transformed into that butterfly we all know and love and tore them apart, the goals were all contenders for goal of the month, especially Diaby’s. He may have his faults, but composure in front of goal isn’t one of them, he also hit the post in the dying minutes which makes 16 times and the Premiership record for woodwork strikes.
Nothing more to add other than thank you Arsenal for making my last two weeks so memorable, it’s almost like we’ve won something, I feel like a man again, I feel complete, yes Arsenal, it’s true, you complete me.
Other news is Theo is now okay, the scans showed a little blood but no major problem and he’ll be back in 10 to 12 days, which in my book means the Man City game, which is great, so him, Ade and Cesc to return and Rosicky soon after, that’s of course if he actually exists! Rosicky that is.
To be honest though I wonder if we need Ade to start, will he upset the balance? Is his attitude right, should we think about swapping him for a new kit bag at the end of the season, ( The red Nike one, not the own brand) because as far as I can see we’ve played so much better since he went off at Shite Hart lane, the arrogance has gone.
Nikki B is beginning to look the player we had hoped for and Robin had a hand in two of the goals, some think he is selfish, but that’s what strikers should be and his running off the ball creates so much, Ade on the other hand is just a lazy sod that postures a lot.
Arshavin is something else, if only Wenger had stuck his hand in his pocket in August, we may be fighting for the title right now, oh well, we are still in the cups but more importantly we are looking good.
With the Chavs and Mancs slipping up and not looking so invincible any more I think we have a real chance in both cup comps, if Liverpool draw today we put a gap in between us and Villa and we stay in touch with the top three.
We pulled away on Everton yesterday so plan ‘B’ is coming to fruition.
Oh finally we got the close up of red nose Robson, fat boy Ashley and the pikey crowd before kick off, then they did the usual this crowd is the best in football crap and there are 50,000 of them here today, well did you all notice that 10 minutes from the end those fanatical half wits had all buggered off to get their black pudding and tripe butties early? When we have a few leave early, we are a shit crowd, their whole stadium emptied and nothing is said, wankers, ha, ha, ha, I hope you and your fickle fans get relegated with Hull.
Have a great day today Grovers, I know I will.
