Watching the fans forum last night is always entertaining when Perry Groves is on, I love that guy, he makes sense and he really believes as we do that Arshavin’s presence will give the team a lift, he said from a player point of view they will be stepping up for fear of losing their place and wanting to prove themselves to the new boy, good combination in my book.
They also said that Keane has his moments but drifts out of games all too often and if we can get past the first 15 minutes we should win at a canter.
Also they will come at us and that suits our quick passing game and our ability to counter attack, so we should see some goals, Ade has been well out of sorts and will relish the chance to get the fans going by scoring against the spuds and I think he has a better record against them than Keane does against us. I think we will be out to prove something tomorrow and I was doubly heartened by the news that Wenger said Rosicky is ahead of schedule and will be back in six or seven weeks, f-cking hell Arsene, that’s April, ahead of schedule? he was supposed to be back in September!
Still at least we’ll have Eduardo and Arshavin knocking on the door, personally with 7 subs allowed I would put them both on the bench tomorrow, if for nothing else other than to lift the fans.
I fancy Robin to rip them up but something tells me Denilson will also get on the score sheet, don’t know why, but I just have this feeling. I would like to see Ramsey as the defensive midfielder but I suspect it will be Song, but if not I would play Vela out left with Nasri and Denilson in the middle and Wilshere out wide, but I know he won’t do that either, so expect a midfield of Nasri, Song, Denilson and Eboue.
I can’t wait for the game, today will pass slower than Alexandre Song tracking back but at least it’s a midday kick off so we won’t have to wait all day tomorrow for the fun to start.
Sorry for the Gordon Brown rant earlier but I am sick of what’s happening here these days, it’s like being run by the students union.
No offense meant to students.
Have a great day Grovers, Blackburn may do us a favour today, well them and Hull anyway!
P.S. Le Grove have setup their own twitter page… seems to be all the rage these days… so click here to join in the fun (I think?)!
