Arsene mate you need to stop telling us Denilson doesn’t get enough credit and that he is one of the best midfielders in the premiership, because he isn’t, and because he was shit against Wigan, but he does have promise and I think he will do a Flamini, eventually.
Secondly you need to stop telling us we were all wrong about this team because – 1) We have won nothing yet, – 2) Many people on this blog have argued with me about two players in particular, so many, many people also believe in this team just like you do – 3) Think how good this team would have been had you signed a world class defensive midfielder a world class centre back and Andre Arshavin in the summer.
You are beginning to sound like a bird that got dumped, you need to start winning things before you can start telling us good this team is and you can start tonight, by sinking the submarine.
The other thing that bothers me is, if by saying that you didn’t sign those players because you would be killing Denilson, Diaby and Song, does that mean we’re stuck with them and you won’t be buying any better players? Because that is a worry, regardless of what we may win this season. Even the Mancs, scousers and Barca strengthen every year, in fact we seem to be the only team that doesn’t.
Still, enough on that subject, but you did bring it up boss, and I felt I had to address it, now onto tonight and the game that we have all been waiting for, the road to Jerusalem. The Champions league quarter final, the yellow submarines, the anti Christ’s, Villa Real.
If we learned anything from our time in Europe and last night, it is 1-1 away from home is rarely enough, we need to go at them from the off, don’t give them time to settle, we know what they can do and in fact have done in the past, as have Wigan and Hull, (going 1 up) we know we are better, we know we can win and this week will be the toughest in our history, we need to play tonight like there is no Saturday, win this one and Saturday will take care of itself, at least if we win tonight we will be in the semis and hopefully against Porto.
When we are in full flow we can beat anyone, play like we mean it, we know that they can hurt us if we let them come at us, we wanted Villa Real, we got them, now let’s show the world we are the Arsenal and prove to the manager he was right to have faith in the youngsters. we can win the double this year but we know that we have to do it the hard way, there are no easy games left in this tournament or in the FA Cup.
I think we have the worlds best manager, I don’t agree with his team selections always, but I do believe in the players he has at his disposal, play the right ones and the game is ours, play the wrong ones and we’re in trouble. It’s ours to win and it’s ours to lose, for all of you that are there tonight let’s raise the roof and show them that they are at fortress ‘The Grove’, stewards let us stand and sing and we will get the team over the line.
Play one of Song, Eboue and Denilson not all 3, let the wingers rip them apart, width will terrify them and stop them attacking us, the best form of defence is attack, if you need any proof of that go back to the battle of Issus in 333bc (my lucky number), when Alexander faced an army 4 times his size, his men said, let’s leave this one boss and have a lie in, he said bollocks, let’s throw the kitchen sink at them, his companion cavalry hit the flanks and Darius was so surprised he couldn’t get out of his own penalty area, it was an away victory not seen again until Nelson turned the French and the Spanish over at Trafalgar, get in there Arsenal and show us the spirit of Issus and my personal Hero Alexander the Great, Mr Song, he’s your namesake, so show them what you have, you did against Wigan!
Arsenal to trounce them, 3 nil for me if I was going to predict, but I’m not, so fear not.
We love you Arsenal, we do, we love you Arsenal, we do, we love you Arsenal, we do, oh Arsenal we love you.
Have a great Day Grovers, this week has our name written on it.
