In this current climate of financial meltdown mass unemployment, repossessions and family break-ups it was heartening to read Arsenals worst player this season has been rewarded with a new and improved contract, even the manager had this to say,
‘I am pleased that Eboue starts to score because it looked to us that he could never score goals’
That was on Arsenal.com so it’s true.
Well thanks to recession proof football, mediocrity has once again been handsomely rewarded. I did ask myself that if Wenger thought he would never again score for Arsenal, what on earth was he playing him on the right side of midfield for, what a waste of a season, had we had a real winger there or even Jack Wilshere, we may have been in a very different position right now.
I won’t dwell on this save to say he is adequate cover as right back and no more, as was Justin Hoyte, but at least Justin was likeable.
On to tonight and who will it be? I would rest the keeper and the two full backs, I would rest Kolo, I would play Arshavin, Theo, Vela and Eduardo, I may even play Song in the middle or Diaby and rest Denilson.
So here’s my team for the Hull City game tonight.
Eboue Djourou Gallas Gibbs
Theo Diaby Nasri Vela
A small side but a creative and fast one, imagine Eduardo on the end of those slide rule passes, I can’t wait, I won’t be going myself tonight because I can’t face another evening with the ‘Orangemen’ looking to spoil my experience, I will give my tickets away and hope they enjoy themselves. I will be watching it on the TV so will also be saving myself a shedload anyway, I am one of those that doesn’t live in a recession proof world so it would probably do me good to miss out anyway.
With the savings I could probably buy the wife a new frock!
We ought to get a cricket score against this team, they aren’t the team that beat us early doors, but they are still a dangerous one, treat them with caution boys, treat them like the wounded Tigers they are, I think this is their last chance for glory, they may well be in another division next season so we need to get in quick, like we did on Saturday, I won’t predict a score tonight as it will be difficult and there are Grovers out there that hate to see me do it, they think I’m a Jonah.
Have a great day all and let’s hope we get to our first semi’s in the FA cup since 1935, 5 nil the Arsenal.
