Good morning Grovers; and what a fine one it appears to be, the sun is shining, the Mancs are crying and Martin Jol will be in his job for at least another week! Could things be any better?
Well they could.
An injury to Blogger Geoff means I will be taking over the Le Grove captaincy for a while. Its rumoured the injury was a groin strain, so how long I’ll be in charge for is indefinite to say the least. Get well soon Blogger Geoff.

It seems my suggestion of Gilberto leaving Arsenal was wide of the mark, well at least if Gilberto has anything to do with it. I really hope Wenger has a long term plan for him. Myles Palmer gives his insider take on the matter.
Harry Redknapp has uncovered the truth. The truth about what makes Arsenal tick. Read this shocking news article to find out more.
For a more comical read, please take a look at this article on how the Manc’s gamble on youth backfired spectacularly last night. Jeez Sir Alex, if Arsene Wenger jumped off a bridge would you follow?
And in other, semi related news – semi related because I want to put my, “I told you so” comments out there, read what Curtis “The cure to Arsenal’s defensive woes” Davies had to say about his performance last night.
“I was just awful. I didn’t contribute anything. I’ve been bigging myself up, saying I’m ready and obviously I’m not. I’m not good enough to get in the team yet. I’m honest with myself in every performance and that was rubbish – I looked like a pub team player.”
Yes you did young Curtis.
And finally, sources close Nikki Bendtner claims the striker is tipping himself for an early Oscar nomination:
“Nikki watched Forest Whitaker’s performance in the last King of Scotland and thought he was wank, he reckons his post match interview with Arsenal.com was way better”.
