So the rumour gathers pace that we are targeting Hangeland or Lescott, I think it’s just what we need, if it is indeed true, but we’ve been here many times before, we need height in the box and we need pace and tenacious tackling, Hangeland may just edge it for me in the height department but Lescott in the English backbone bit, both are obviously speculation so I’ll leave it there, one thing’s for sure, Wenger won’t talk about other teams players, so it’s probably fanciful talk, but with Gallas at 32 and not fitting in, who knows.
A sad day for football saw 22 dead in the crowd for the Ivory coast game, question is, why did the game go on? All on the anniversary of Hillsborough, you would think they could sort out these problems by now, wouldn’t you.
I expect that will have a detrimental effect on Kolo and Eboue so we may have to think about the other options for a while, like Silvestre or Djourou.
Cesc has denied the latest rumours which is great, but it is high time Barcelona and Madrid were brought to book for there continual and deliberate attempts to unsettle our players, and should we ever sell Cesc, we should make sure we don’t sell him to those two.
I would say to them, okay Barca, you want Cesc, we’ll swap him for Messi, they will say no, then Cesc will find out how much they really rate him, likewise with Madrid, if on the other hand they said yes, then that would show Messi how much they rate him, then he will be unsettled and Karma is complete.
I hate the way we allow other teams to bully us, we always have and always will be bullied, it’s time for the empire to strike back, it’s time to show that bullies cannot win, it’s time to show them that we are a big club to, it’s time to show them we are the Arsenal and we too have teeth.
Other news is that Everton beat our ladies and ended their unbeaten 108 game run, it had to happen at some point, at least they are still well clear in their championship race and it will buck them up a bit, they still have to play them again, so revenge is on the cards. Come on you ladies!
Okay so we only have 5 days to wait for a game, I don’t know about you, but this feels like the worst break ever, I don’t know why? Only Nikki B got injured so hopefully he’ll be back by Saturday, I would hate to see the Togo twat waltz straight back in, I would rather RVP and Eduardo got the nod, he really needs to learn some humiliity.
I’m sorry to hear that Reggie may be losing his job, Reggie, it’s their loss mate, I hope you find another soon.
Have a great day today Grovers, countdown has begun!
