I’m sorry if some of you think I’m putting the mockers on today by suggesting a tonking, but if West Ham can beat Portsmouth 4-1 away from home then it really shouldn’t be a problem for Arsenal to dish out a pounding, and given the great news that Song won’t be playing, it will be like watching a passing team all over again, so I’m looking forward to seeing us get three points if nothing else.
It will be nothing else because Song will return and Arsene will buy no one, or no one of interest in the window, as the experiment will drag on for another 5 months until the summer where we’ll lose our best players again, groundhog day continues.
I listened to TalkShite yesterday on my way to the driving range and two mupppets by the name of Collymore and Houghten were talking about Wenger, they both said that nothing beats Wengerball but that doesn’t mean he can’t be criticised, and they said he needs to change what he’s doing or he’ll lose his coveted 4th spot, they said in the first half at Villa we were awful, they said Wenger said we were the better team against Liverpool and we clearly weren’t, so to sum up they said he needs to spend.
Collymore said he researched how many times the board has come out this season alone and said Wenger has huge funds at his disposal for players. It was 7 times. They also said that the whole footballing world, which inlcludes many ex-Arsenal players all said he needs to spend money. They said the board has said it too many times for it to be wrong. I agree.
Someone said on the blog yesterday that if we don’t qualify for the champions league will will fail to attract top players next season, hey! wake up people, what does that matter, we wouldn’t buy them anyway!
Ok, I hope I’m wrong and that the manager buys some new players in the window and gets rid of the dead wood. The dead wood for me is Song, Almunia and Eboue and loan out Bendtner because he needs to prove he can make it at the top level and so far this season he hasn’t showed anything that I would want for my pub team, let alone the love of my life, the Arsenal.
I really believe we are only 3 or 4 players off being dominant, but if we don’t sign those players we won’t finish in the top 6, let alone the top 4, and the sooner Mr Wenger realises that the sooner we will win things, the minute that Song went off against Villa we started to play better football and had Ramsey been given the playing time Song had so far this season, he would be twice the player he is now and 4 times the player Song will ever be.
Arsene if you rate Song, please tell us what he did in the Villa game that warranted your unbelievable praise, because no one in the footballing world can see it, he’s slow, positionally woeful, gives away fouls, loses possession, can’t seem to pass to his own players and is slower than the wonderful old lady that sits behind me at the Grove.
If you’re going today Grovers have a great day, I really expect this to be Tony Adams last game in charge, so Arsene, keep him behind in the changing room today and sign him as your number two, let Pat retire, he’s been a loyal servant but we need too kick on and win something this year.
Arsenal 5 Portsmouth nil.
Sorry, I forgot my preferred team, not the one he would pick, my team.
