So if you read the post yesterday you would have noted it was not my happiest, it did indeed bring out the schoolboys as I expected, but it also threw up a mixed bag of points of view, and as we say on this blog, have an opinion not get one, so with this in mind I went to bed last night wishing that Arsene would tell me why he makes such strange decisions and why he stubbbornly refuses to spend our money, so I could tell you all today what the deal was.
We met in my imaginary gym, oh, and before I’m accused of a misleading headline, it was my dream and it was real, so if you feel that way, stop now and go immediately to Arsenal.com or one of our stalker blogs and get your fix from them.
I asked him why he continues to play Song and Eboue, he said that Eboue was a mistake, he thought he could do a job on the wing and as it was his mistake, he took him off and the subject was closed. Song he said, did a good job and he thought I was being unfair and said to give him at least to the end of the year before I tore into him again, I said fair enough.
He said he can’t remember reading our blog, I said so how do you know I feel that way about Song? He gave a nervous laugh and ask me to move on, I brought up transfers and money, explaining it was ours and not his and he had a duty to spend it on players that are ready now and not wasting it on youngsters that may never make it, he then said he felt his experiment would bear fuit, it’s his mistake and he would buy Alonso in the window, he also said he was thinking of buying a winger and a centre back and he is seriously considering letting Gallas go as he feels the changing room and Gallas do not get on, he said he cuts a lonely figure at the moment.
So that was it, my dream and the closest I’ll get to an interview, so was it my imagination?… …what news greets me this morning? We are back in for Alonso!
Just a mention that we had many ‘REAL FANS’ on yesterday saying how they would go to games if they could get tickets, well Pedro informed me that of the 12 tickets we had on Le Exchange last week for the Wigan game only two were taken, so to those people that said that, shame on you and think before you open your mouths, people like you talk the talk but…
Porto next up and I remember what happened the last time we played them away, we both had qualified and we played out a tame if not laughable draw, this time though we need to win the group, so expect another tame if not laughable draw!
Really I hope we get back to playing great football, Wigan hadn’t been beaten in 5 so maybe weren’t as easy as I expected but we need to hit the groove for the next two fixtures, which are tough, I expect to see Wilshere and Ramsey start this one, this game reminnds me of the pre season game against Madrid.
Let’s fly the flag boys, let’s go and show the Portuguese who the Arsenal are, let’s send a message to Europe that you don’t want to play us, let’s show them why we are known as the Manc and chav slayers, let’s show them WE ARE THE ARSENAL!
Have a great Monday Grovers, only two days to go.
