I was staggered that Anelka said in the Sun that he was wrong to have left Arsenal, we play amazing football and he would love to play for us again, he also said he didn’t think he’d get in the current side.
That amounts to an apology doesn’t it? On that basis the board’s prejudice against him has to be lifted, he is just what we could do with until Theo and Bendtner come of age.
And if we sign this new young African Tresor Mputu, we would really piss those two off, unless of course Tresor’s a winger.
Anelka’s an experienced goal scorer and one that leads the line well. Go get him Arsene.
Gilberto looks like he’s now touting himself to Juve, it’s a real shame that has happened, he scored some 9 goals last season and was a great example to the team, I personally think he’s been treated appallingly by Wenger, but at the same time, players these days have very little patience.
We’ve had three players threatening to move on if their not played and four if you include Gilberto.
I think if Arsene decided in the early part of the season that there was no place in his set up for Gilberto, he should have told him, not snubbed him for the captaincy and then dropped him, he was worth better treatment than that.
Even though Gallas has made a great captain, he was out of line with his comments and seemed to get rewarded for them, Gilberto on the other hand said nothing and got nothing.
I think it’s no coincidence that we’ve now had three French captain’s on the trot, next one up will surely be Cesc.
So in short today, I’m siding with Gilberto for shabby treatment from the manager and I think we should re sign Anelka before Red nose does, one thing is for sure, Bolton won’t keep him.
We need to win trophies this season and he is the type of player that could help.
Not too many to choose from in midfield today, but Rosicky, Diarra, Denilson and Eduardo should do it with Theo and Ade up top.
But please no Song.
I expect Senderos to partner Gallas today, don’t know why, just a hunch but I think he will.
Did I mention, please no Song? If I didn’t, please no Song.
