So that’s it then, tomorrow, the big one, the one where we can see what we have in the locker, the first real test.
Some may say the bigger tests were the Wigans and the West Broms as they have been our Achilles heels for the last 4 years, and that’s where I am, the Chavs have recently been a thorn in our side but after watching the FA Cup final in 2002 against them, it made me realise that they are just a team that got where they are because they used questionable money to buy their success.
Ashley Cole played for us that day, and he was good then, how nice to see him behind our second choice Keiran Gibbs in the ‘footballability’ stakes, they are an ageing team and we should despatch them easily, even without our two centre backs. I can’t wait to face them and their shit keeper with the crash helmet, I expect they will throw him away in the summer as Roman tires with that expensive toy.
I know a few chavs, let me tell you about them, one was a Brighton fan, one was a Leicester fan, then the chavs started to win a few and they jumped ship, that sums up chavs for me, not real fans.
I am though meeting two today and in fairness to them, they are real chavs, in fact one used to come to Highbury with me every year for our traditional guaranteed 3 points, those guys have seen many years of crap football and tomorrow will be no exception, but having lunch with them is always amusing, a bit like having lunch with Hitler the day before he invaded Russia, crow, crow, crow then oops.
Another chav fan is my bank manager, say no more! One is a barrister, I rest my case and the last one I know sells furniture, well he needs to buy himself a sofa and sit in a dark room for a few weeks, because after Saturday, he’ll be needing help.
A word about yesterday, there has been much debate about Alex Song, I’m not convinced, Pedro rates him, we all have our views on him, but because we don’t always agree we should not start slagging each other off, we’ll leave that to other blogs, this one is friendly and I will make sure it stays that way, so if people get sin binned, it’s their own fault.
If Song was man of the match tomorrow, I would be delighted, not devastated, I support the Arsenal and if any player puts on the shirt, I’m behind him but let’s not forget because Arsene Wenger buys a player he has to be good, he’s bought a few lemons in his time.
I hope Song runs Essien into the ground tomorrow but I also remember what Drogba did to Senderos and what the horse did to Stepanovs. Whatever happens I know he won’t be buying a new midfielder so we have what we have, I do rate Diaby though and the last time he faced the chavs in the cup he played a one two with Walcott for the goal and almost took John Terry’s head off, so maybe it’s an omen.
Have a fun day today Grovers and remember we’re all Arsenal fans, we all have an opinion and I’m always right.
Who else predicted 3 zip against Villarreal? No one did, well except me that is!
P.S. Pedro has two singles for Liverpool away!
