Two of our hot young prospects Gibbs and Randall went to Norwich and Burnley respectively (On Loan), and I agree with that, I think Denilson and Theo may have benefited too but for whatever reason they stayed.
Wenger again refused to spend any money and the rumour is he has gone to a laboratory run by Georgio Armani a cloning guru as he now believes in making the best young talent from around the world as it’s cheaper and he can choose the parent, Pele was seen near the lab, randy old pervert.
The second faze of the season begins and all talk of signings has gone at least until May, which is a good thing as it stops us all speculating and getting angry with no activity.
I raised the question yesterday if we have the best young talent why don’t we win the FA Youth Cup, is it because we don’t have the best youngsters?
In the last few years we have signed Kyle Bartley, Fran Merida, Nordtveit, Van den berg, Gilles Sunu and Rui Fonte, but we don’t seem to clean up at youth level. Interesting, I wonder if anyone has any theories.
I expect us to get a result this weekend and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Chelsea and ManU dropping points, so it’s doubly vital that we don’t stumble up there in the cold wastes of Scotland, or where-ever the blue side of Manchester is.
We are apparently unchanged for tomorrows game with Rosicky and Robin the ‘boy wonder’ still short, I think an unchanged team bodes well and Flamini seems to be more vital to our machine than anyone and that amazes me, what a transformation, I look to him now a bit like I used to with Patrick and the goal he scored against Newcastle was a contender for goal of the season, so keep it up Matti and sign the contract.
Big Phil seems to have discovered defending again and is starting to look more assured, with Micah Richards facing him, I hope he tries to prove who the real daddy is, so good luck Phil and be the daddy.
I expect us to show our credentials in the best possible way and romp to another 3 nil win.
