The Sunday papers were in overdrive following our draw with the Brummies and ManU’s hammering of the Geordies.
They say we are preparing to hi-jack their bid for Huntelaar, they say we are ready to buy Shay Given, who incidentally, let in 6 at the weekend and the winger, N’Zogbia.
I have to say I don’t believe a word of it but what I find interesting is, ManU have Rooney, Tevez and Ronaldo scoring for fun, but they still want to sign a striker.
That’s probably why they’ve won the Premier league so often, because they continually invest, and how comes they don’t have players wanting to leave? Or Real Madrid promising to sign Ronaldo and Rooney all season?
Wenger says he’s hopeful that Flamini will sign a new contract, but as I’ve said before, I’m worried that we have another Edu situation on our hands, he better know what the Flamster is doing before he sells Diarra.
I know we all hate Diarra at the moment but he is still a good back up.
I would like to see a signing or two, not just to freshen up the team, but to put some competition in the side, I believe that half the problem with us not being able to defend set pieces is most of the defence is looking at Senderos to drop a clanger and when he’s not around, they get on with their job.
Gallas is in his 30’s and with the amount of games we play, I genuinely believe four center backs are needed and will be used, so I don’t see the problem.
I won’t dwell on the game as enough has been said already and the boss has admitted it was our worst performance, it was his fault and the fans were great (Wenger’s words, not mine) so all in all Pedro hit the nail on the head yesterday.
So for the pencil dicks that decided to start gobbing off last night, don’t bother coming back on or next time I’ll publish your email addresses and let the Grovers let you know what they think of your abuse.
Unfortunately because of a few morons I had to put the approve comments on last night (as I went out with Mrs Le Grove) so a few of you commented but only got through this morning, so apologies to EVO in OZ, Michael, John and John Quinn, we welcome your comments and look forward to many more.
So we have a week of transfer speculation before we take on Fulham and Spurs in what could be a big fortnight in our long and glorious season.
All the negatives are out and this week all the positives shall flow in abundance.
For those Grovers who weren’t at the match, the atmosphere was great, the red and white flag waving has really taken off big time, it almost looked like the kop end! No offence anyone, that was a compliment, we’re starting to get a great look at the Grove, let’s get the good football back to match it!
Anyway, at least Tottenham lost!
