Don’t be puzzled Grovers, Adebayor won African player of the year based on last season and not this, so before you all have seizures you have to put that into perspective! I’m pretty sure he won’t win it this year! Needless to say our other African players won nothing.
Onto more positive news our kids starred last night for their respective countries, Hoyte, Lansbury and Wilshere played for the under 18’s in their defeat to Spain, whilst Fran Merida played for the Spanish, Gibbs got on against Ecuador for a cameo and Bischoff scored two for the Portuguese under 21’s, so our mob had a busy if not mixed night’s football.
Arshavin won’t feature for Russia so he should be more than rested when he makes his Arsenal debut in two months. Gilberto joins Robert Pires, Le Grove and everyone else in football by saying we’ll win nothing until we sign a top defensive midfielder and a centre back so no change there, thanks for the advice guys.
Not playing until the FA Cup game against Cardiff whilst boring, it does give the team a well earned rest and gives the coach time to work out how to beat the Championship side, no excuses as they would have had one week and one day since we played Tottenham.
Nikki B says he should be first choice regardless of Adebayor’s injury but I think he may be forgetting that man we call Dudu, so will the boss start him or will he relent and try the Croazilian? I hope he starts the Croazilian.
The boy wonder says Eduardo and Arshavin are doing amazing things in training and he can’t wait to play with them, read into that what you like you smutty sods but I see that as excitement waiting to explode on the scene and I, like Robin, cannot wait!!!
Now that the chavs have themselves a new manager they will either raise their game or lower it, after John Terry’s comments, I personally think they are finished as a force with this team as they are all getting too old, so I still think we can catch them, I still think we can catch Liverpool and Villa but we have to start winning again, no reason we can’t and frankly we have nothing to lose, if we don’t watch it we may miss out on a UEFA cup spot as well so he needs to get his team revved up and needless to say, we need to get behind them.
I expect all the transfer rumours will start again soon but we need to forget all that as May is a long time away and the last day of August (when we eventually buy) is even further away.
I know it feels like our season is over but we still have the FA Cup and the Champions league to play for and given that we may well have Cesc and Theo back by then we can still win some silverware, we could do with Rosicky back for the Roma game but I won’t hold my breath.
So with no football for 5 days all we have is ourselves and our blog, so have a fun day debating Grovers, there’s bugger all else to do, except to work and who the fu-k likes that, Le Grove, the only sensible alternative to working for a living.
Maybe it’s time to unleash Bischoff in that defensive midfield role, he scored two for Portugal last night so who knows, we can’t do any worse… …can we?
