Ok to start on a very positive note and to issue credit, where credit is due, a great friend of mine who is a season ticket holder and an Arsenal nut, told me a story that warmed the very cockles of my red and white heart.
His son who is in his mid 20’s was playing for his local team, he skinned a defender and received an Eduardo style break and dislocation, unfortunately for this young man, he may not get his game back, much like Eduardo he’s in the lap of the gods.
For anonymity’s sake we’ll call this Gooner ‘Tiny Tim’ after his dad. My mate told the powers that be, that his son had a similar break to Eduardo’s and Arsenal told Eduardo, who then wrote a get well letter to Tiny Tim, so a big well done to Ken Friar and his team, I thought that showed why Arsenal are unlike other clubs, they care about their fans as well. It was a classy thing to do. Get well soon Tiny, we’re all rooting for you.
Tim will also be at the game tonight as arrangements are being made to get him there, so if the team needed any more encouragement, they’ve got it now!
Ade’s warning the boys they need to focus and show no mercy, clinical finishing and the spirit of Fenerbahce and West Ham are called for, go get them gooners.
The BBC said that Cesc said the spuds couldn’t beat our ladies, I can’t find where he said it, but Cesc, I think the chavs would struggle to beat our ladies, so go and show them how it’s done.
Harry Redknapp seems to have a memory problem, last year he was a lifelong gooner, today he’s a lifelong Spud, it just goes to show the lengths that some people will go to please a few hundred spurs fans, shame on you Dirty Harry.
I’m really looking forward to tonight but as always I’m very nervous when it comes to playing the spuds, we need to put them to the sword and shut Bentley up, I expect them to play with a lone striker and stifle the midfield, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see Wenger sending out the Fenerbahce set up, though I would prefer him to play Ade, Robin, Theo, Nasri, Nikki and Vela up front and win 17 nil, sadly I don’t think he’ll be taking my advice though!
Have a great night tonight Grovers if big Tone does us a favour, we’ll be 1 point behind and I think Pompey have a far better team than the spuds.
4-1 the Arsenal and let’s sing so loud we can’t hear the knuckle draggers from Shite hart lane all night.
