So we won! What a game of absolutely no consequence, I think that’s the first game I ever watched where I almost switched channels, in fact had I not been in a pub, on my own, I probably would have.
He says we were a very young team, but he says it like it’s an excuse, well it shouldn’t be a young team, go and buy some older, better players before this season goes down the pan, like the last three.
This team won’t finish in the top ten and if he thinks they will, then he’s more deluded than I thought, we scored two goals, Gallas played a good captains role and Twenty were ordinary, there, that’s the match report done.
I knew that Henry wouldn’t go to the Mancs, but why have I got a feeling he may be coming back to Arsenal? Wenger said yesterday he would never go to ManU
’But I think if he comes back to England then he comes back to Arsenal’
His quote not mine, a strange thing to say don’t you think? Then when I watched Arsenal TV and Henry was being interviewed, he said you always come back to where you belong, which again I thought an odd thing to say for a Barcelona player. We could do with him at Arsenal, super sub and maybe 20 games a season, at least until Bendtner, Theo and Vela grow up.
The good news about that dismal performance is that he must now see we need to buy at least a defensive midfield player and maybe a new centre back (OK Chary?) he must also see these players are just too young to be in our team this new season, Djourrou did well, but I still think we need a beast.
The other thing that was apparent is we are not the Harlem Globetrotters! That was dire, Robin I have no fears about, he will only get better, don’t forget he’s been on his own in Holland and doing nothing but drinking Heineken and eating copious amounts of Gouda, it was just one of those nights.
Don’t forget the Scousers, massively tipped to win the world cup, the Formula 1 constructors title and the Grand National by everyone including the special one, and they almost got beaten by a side from Belgium, so we all have days off, lets hope we get some of our grown ups back for the West Brom game and maybe a new signing, he has been making those noises about signing someone, the problem is I can’t think of any injured defensive midfielders that are available, so who will he buy? Barry just signed a new 5 year deal at Villa so it won’t be him, Alonso is cup tied, so it won’t be him, so that leaves Inla, Velosa or Cana.
So it will be Inler, he’ll be the cheapest.
