Ok that’s what arsenalshorts are ‘tongue in cheek’ saying, first of all why would we want a Barca croc that constantly causes trouble, for one of the worlds best players? We wouldn’t, so ignore it.
Robin Van Persie, who I have to say takes the best free kicks I have ever seen, will stay at Arsenal for life.
Modric, maybe, but he does look a little small and really is the same type of player as Rosicky, then he’ll have to bed in for a year, as given that
Rosicky and Eduardo still haven’t clicked, it doesn’t really make any sense and at £30mil is way over priced.
Anyway, we have way too many midfield players in the team and coming through, so for me another dead story.
We do need an out and out winger though, possibly a centre back and of course a goal keeper.
I would expect a bit of activity with Man City, maybe Diaby for Richards could be on the cards and to be honest, that’s the only way I would handle losing him.
Ideal world for me, Richards in, Green in and a pacey winger like Robinho.
Richards to give us that bit of steel at the back and cover for the much injured Gallas, who I love by the way, but you need 4 center backs these days.
Green because he’s a better bet than Almunia and he is English and I think we do need to have a spine of English players, just so that I can start watching England games again and enjoying them.
And a winger, I know I mentioned Robinhio before but he isn’t a regular for Madrid and I think he would work well with our style of play.
Gilberto to go in a swap deal with Richards and Lehman to City.
Diaby should be played in center midfield and I expect to see him and Diarra both playing against Wigan.
Other than that we need no one and won’t in the summer, this team will just get better and better, what we don’t need is yet another central midfield player and that’s why I rule out Modric.
We’re fine up front and it was good to see Bendtner banging in another against Northern Ireland.
Theo will play more and I expect him and Robin to start threatening the Ade partnership, who again (Ade that is) is growing into the team and will always cause problems and score when you least expect it.
So team for Saturday.
Hoyte Kolo Gallas Traore
Hleb Diarra Diaby Rosicky
With Fabianski, Theo, Bendtner, Gilberto and Sagna on the bench.
These are the games he’ll experiment and try and keep players happy, we have a tough run in December and I expect by the Chelsea game he’ll know, and they’ll know the best 11 and that way they’ll be no more whinging.
We had a record number of hits yesterday so we must be doing something right in a non footballing fortnight, keep blogging Grovers, we value your opinion.
