I saw something horrific this morning, truly sad and I want you to take a minute to think about this.
Today, driving up the M1 a tragic accident occurred.
A truck overturned on the motorway shedding its load of about 20,000 beer cans, the driver was ok, but sadly… a majority of the beer cans perished at the scene of the motorway.
Think about that today. It really puts life into perspective.
Moving swiftly on.
According to rumour, Wenger will not be signing a Flamini replacement.
By my reckoning he has 3 choices.
Performed wonders at the ACN. He has improved hugely over the last season and despite being played at CB, he could be in-line for a promotion a little further up the pitch. Can he make the step up? Is he too lazy? Is he too prone to pulling a ‘Senderos’? Is he just not good enough?
Undoubtedly the most talented of the three. He can be Vieiraesque one minute, weaving his way around players and scoring screamers… but then he can remind us of why he spends most of his time on the bench with a misplaced two yard pass. He is also up there with the best on Le List.
What is he! Is he Cesc Mark II or is he Gilberto with bells and whistles? The Brazil under 19 captain certainly lacks the bulk to play the holding role, but will the summer see a transformation? Can he make his mark on the team… can he define his role for the team? He certainly showed promise in his first season, however last year due to injury and lack playing time he tailed off a bit… I call it ‘secondseasonitis’.
Can any of these young pretenders stamp their authority on the first team next year? Can they push Arsenal on the extra 8 points he wants (Arsene did say 91 right?).
Only time will tell. I’d like to hear your opinion in the comments section!
Finally, if you were expecting Le Champ of the season today, I apologise… it will be here tomorrow. A good Friday finisher!
Also, spare a thought to the thousands of families who lost an 8 pack in todays tragic accident…
See you in the comments…
