Ok let’s start with the BBC, I watched Chris (Look at me, look at me) Hollins, who didn’t get the job because his dad was a famous Arsenal footballer, and nor did his sister Victoria, it was, I believe, on merit.
Yeah, sure it was.
Anyway he did a 3 minute cameo on Celtic, 3 ‘seconds’ on Arsenal and 5 minutes on Red nose, this biased coverage is appalling for a London based station, it’s bad enough listening to the 3 monkeys on match of the day.
Anyway BBC online make us favourites, so the clever, stupid balance was restored.
Other news is Real, like Barca have dropped their interest in Cesc, so hopefully we can have a summer free of speculation, as the Italians have no money, so they won’t bother.
Pedro updated the Le Chump and Champs of the week for your perusal.
Super Nick says it feels ‘bloody good’ to be at Arsenal and his spat with Ade has long finished, it all sounds good to me, so well done Nick.
The consensus is that we will start 4-5-1
Sagna Phil Gallas Clichy
Eboue Fabregas Flamini Hleb Diaby
Using Bendtner, Walcott and Robin as Impact players with Hoyte and Gilberto if we need to defend.
Swiss Phil, you owe us one, enough said, do your thing.
I agree for once, that 4-5-1 is wise, but I have never believed we should bring on defenders to shore up as I think that attack is the best form of defence.
Did I say I really don’t like Chris Hollins? Toady butt kisser who thinks it’s cute to fall flat on his face doing whatever he does on our money.
So a cautious start and I expect hit them on the break, don’t forget we need to score to win, or score more penalties, as long as we don’t get hammered, I’ll be happy, the spirit of Madrid and Turin is called for tonight.
I’m sticking on 2-1 Arsenal, and that’s not because I support them, it’s because I believe.
Do you believe Grovers? Do you feel lucky?
