I’ll bet you didn’t expect me to be saying that did you? Has Alexandre Song got brothers? No chance, let me explain.
Partrick Vieira was in the Sun yesterday saying that he loves the Arsenal, and one of the reasons was listening to 50,000 fans singing ‘Vieira whoooooh, Vieira whoooooooh, he comes from Senegal, he plays for Arsenal, Vieira whoooooooooh’ you get the drift.
I, having read the said article started humming it, as I’m sure you are doing right now, it’s pretty infectious and that’s what I think the problem at Arsenal is, we have no real player songs to sing and they used to get the whole stadium going, remember ‘Bergkamp wonderland’ ‘Thierry Henry, Thierry Henry’ ‘Super, super bob’ ‘We love you Freddie cos you’ve got read hair’ and ‘Where’s your captain gone’ they were all crackers.
I can only think of two right now, ‘We got Cesc Fabregas’ and ‘Adebayor give him the ball and he will score’
Hardly inspiring is it? Perhaps our songwriters ought to get some new songs for our new players and that will get the stadium singing, I heard ‘One Arsene Wenger’ belting out at West Ham, but I think that was more as a reaction to his comments.
I can remember winning the FA Cup against the Chavs and the crowd stayed for an hour after singing ‘We love you Freddie’ I could barely speak that evening, well that may have been the alcohol, but we were going for it!
Not a great deal of news out there, but great to hear Robin and Theo bigging themselves up for the kicking teams, I expect the Spuds to run around like headless chickens tomorrow but they won’t have their centre halfs as they’re suspended, they will have King though, but I remember the last time we played the spuds and their new managers first game was us at Old Trafford, that day that man was Hoddle and their talisman centre back was Sol Campbell, a parlour tackle sorted him out and we stuffed them 2-1 to be honest it should have been 10.
I flew to Manchester on a Jumbo jet that day, imagine that, a jumbo jet, what a great day, I see tomorrow’s game like that and I think we’ll wallop them, you don’t become a good team overnight, and they are not a good team.
Pedro asked me to tell you we have two club level tickets for the Spurs game so the first to email in will be put you in touch with the ticket holder.
Have a great day today Grovers, tomorrows the big one!
