I think that’s the way the song goes.
So it’s 7 years since Arsenal through and through David ‘Rocky’ Rocastle, passed away.
I won’t dwell on his history save to say he never stopped running his whole Arsenal career.
My abiding memories of him were scoring against the spuds in the semi final of the League cup and crying his eyes out when Georgie boy told him he was going to Leeds for £2 million quid, or something like that.
Letting Rocky go was as strange a decision as Wenger letting Merson go some years later.
Rocky you may have gone to Leeds and the chavs, but you’ll always be remembered for being a gooner, I seem to remember you coming back to Arsenal and being employed by the club in some role years later, but I can’t remember what.
If you’re up there reading this, the team need you now, so do what you can if you would, again!
You’ll always be remembered for being a true professional, a great and tenacious midfielder and a fantastic role model to all the then kids, many of them now grown up Grovers, so thanks for the memories Rocky!
Two days to go until we play the first leg of our quarter final Champions league game against the scousers, I’m quietly confident only because we’re a better team, Diaby won’t be playing and everyone will be up for it.
I’m sure they’re always are up for it but with the season rapidly coming to an end and the premiership cruelly drifting away, this team is playing for it’s future.
I think the boss may have had a tough decision coming up with Kolo or Phil but with Kolo playing right back he may have had his hand forced and the problem solved.
So the only decision for me now is to start with Theo, don’t screw around, we’re a better team with him playing, the rest pick themselves.

It would be great if you could post on the official Rocky7 website, leave your messages of support there, I know Rocky’s family will read them!
Have a good day Grovers, and enjoy the video clip!
