Okay yesterdays question on who do we sign, threw up some interesting scenarios.
I think the consensus was to let Lehmann go and reluctantly Gilberto, I say reluctantly because he’s been a great servant to the club, but is getting older and Diarra is in the wings behind Flamini so we have enough cover in that position.
Also it was a mixed bag on Eboue, you either love him or hate him.
Quaresma was either too big a name or just what we need, but I did hear Benzema and Micah Richards a lot, so boss if you’re reading, take note!
All in all, a good and constructive days blogging Grovers and very interesting to hear so many differing opinions, that’s what this blog is all about.
The biggest thing that came out however was universally we all hate 4-5-1 and believe it to be negative, so Arsene, go back to 4-4-2 and keep us here at Le Grove happy.
Big ask today, Everton are the form team, scoring goals at will and apart from losing to the Mancs (90 minute penalty) have swept all aside, including 2 wins in a week at Upton Park, coincidentally our next up opponents.
So who will play? And how will we play?
The back five pick themselves so.
Sagna Kolo Gallas Clichy
Midfield is a tougher one but I’m thinking one change there.
Hleb Cesc Flamini Rosicky
With Arteta playing Cesc will shine, with both being Spanish, as he did against Liverpool with Torres on show.
Up front I would really like him to be ballsy and try.
He won’t though! so it will be Ade alone up front and Diaby, Gilberto or Diarra drafted into midfield.
I think he is waiting until he gets Boy Wonder back before he dares try 4-4-2 again.
So a tough game on the cards today, but then I thought Blackburn would be harder so who know? he may surprise us.
Go, go Arsenal, it’s games like this that win titles.
Checkout the talented Benzema…
