First of all a Happy New Year to all you Grovers, let’s hope we can win the league in our debut blogging season!
The story of Dani Parejo (Real Madrid) is getting stronger on the rumour mill but with a £10 million buy out clause I really can’t see it, though he did buy Theo for a lot of money.
Matthew Connolly going to QPR (rumour) upsets me as I was told he is the next John Terry, it’s the bit that does frustrate me, we seem to fight hard to keep the overseas kids, Merida, Vela and Song for instance but we don’t with the young English talent like Bentley, Upson and Sidwell.
Now for anyone who wants to start calling me a heretic for not agreeing with all things Arsenal please read no further and go to arsenal.com immediately, you’ll be much happier there and you’ll like what they say.
I happen to feel that all those English kids could have blossomed in our team, and yes I know Upson was injury prone, but so is Robin and Bentley was want away but so was Flamini, and Flamini was awful when he first came to Arsenal, let’s not forget.
Anyway it seems that Eduardo will start today so that must mean our favoured 4-4-2 with Ade up top as I believe Bendtner is suspended.
Hoyte comes in for Sagna and I guess Eboue is in for Hleb, though I would rather see Theo out wide.
I think an early goal is what we’ll be looking for and our passing game will return as we play on a football pitch and not a pasture like at Everton.
Some good supportive comments yesterday Grovers, but as today is match day it will probably be a little quiet, but we post regardless, let’s hope tomorrow we have something to crow about.
I think we will and 3 nil seems about right.
