So Bellamy is injured, and we know that because he didn’t play for Wales and he has always been a thorn in our side so that is great news, but if Hughes drops Robinho that will be a bonus, he tore us a new arsehole at the Eastlands so I don’t fancy seeing him again for a while.
Only two more shopping days till Christmas eh? Well it ought to be Christmas because beating ManCity will see us opening a 6 point gap on Villa, and as I don’t expect them to get a result against the Mancs, I think that will be it, but don’t forget two things, the first is we have to beat City and the second is we still have to play the chavs, scousers and the mancs, so even if we get ahead of villa, we have to maintain it.
The other good news is at least we played Newcastle before they got Shearer at the helm, I think he’s completely useless, judging by his comments on MOTD, but he will have that new manager effect for the first few games, so at least that game is out of the way.
Eduardo scored last night so that was good and there are no new injuries as far as I can see, but we need to get Robin and Nikki B fit and then we are away.
I’m glad Robin came out and said that Arsenal need to match his ambition and sign quality players because he knows we need a centre back and a defensive midfielder as much as we do, hopefully the boss will reassure him with more than Song, Diaby and Denilson. Don’t get me wrong, Denilson will make it and Diaby is classy, but he’s another crock I think and we have enough of those.
Notice I didn’t mention Song, it’s all part of the new impartial me, I wonder when Rosicky is back, surely he must be near fitness, we only have 8 games left and given he’ll take 2 or 3 to get match fit, he’s beginning to run out of time.
Finally it was great to hear Traore saying he wants to be an Arsenal player even if it takes another 3 years, that’s the spirit son!
Have a great day Grovers, Saturday is looming! Our destiny will soon be upon us.
