So it’s confirmed, Bendtner starts tonight, what an opportunity for him, he must be the most experienced 19 year old in football, banging them in for Denmark has given him a confidence rarely seen in young players nowadays.
Let’s hope he does it tonight, I think Eduardo will partner him and Theo will be held back as an impact player, also he did get a knock against Wigan so he’ll use him sparingly.
No Gallas, so it’s King Kolo tonight, I expect Gilberto back with Cesc but I would not be surprised to see Flamini there either.
It could also be the game for Rosicky to start center midfield, we have so many options it’s frightening.
It’s going to be a tough game tonight and all we need is a draw, but with kids, with lots to prove, expect to see us go at them, and that’s why I think Flamini and Diarra will play a role this evening.
It will be great to see Cesc back and out to impress the Spanish and show them what they’ve been missing.
Don’t take any notice of their dismal form, don’t forget it’s a cup game and they’re a cup team, as the stats said, last time we played them it was fairly even, only we scored the goals, how many times has that happened to us over the years?
I expect us to be ruthless tonight and they will come at us, which suits us perfectly.
Some good late night blogging yesterday guys, the Richards and Anelka debate was going strong and good points were made by you all, unfortunately we’ll have to wait until January to see if any of you were right, or tonight (Senderos) to see if any of you were wrong!
I can’t wait for the game, I’m looking forward to the pre-match talk as much as the game, why? Because they all love Arsenal on the box at the moment and it’s been a long time coming.
Have a great night, nay a glory night Grover’s!
