Whatever country you are from, whatever religion you follow and whichever God you support today is our big day, today is our patron saint day, today is St George’s day. There are many stories written about our hero, the greatest of all the saints and the only one that did anything useful, but none of them are true, he rid the world of dragons and no one else did that, if you need proof, go and check out our currency, he’s on the sovereign and there’s no way he’d be on that if he didn’t exist.
If you’re still unsure, look out of your window, do you see Dragons? No you don’t and if that’s not proof, you need help, so go and see a doctor.
So today the English celebrate St George’s day, and it may get quiet on here as many have said they are out on the piss raising a glass or two to the man who made it safe to go for a walk on your own. Thank you George, we owe you.
Onto football, although it looks like the mancs will now win the league, with the chavs dropping points and still to come to the Grove we have a real chance to finish third or better and get the automatic spot in the Champions league, so it’s not over yet and if the boss doesn’t leave out all our best players for that crucial game we have a real chance of winning.
I do fear for us playing the Mancs with our depleted defence, but two things perk me up, one is we should have Clichy and Djourou back by then and secondly, don’t forget the team we smashed 4 past beat them at their gaff 4-1 so maybe they aren’t as good as we all think.
Down side is we won’t have Arshavin, but we should have Eduardo and Robin fit.
The youth team smashed Man City last night to reach the final of the FA Youth cup against Liverpool (probably) many people don’t realise that City were the reigning champions, so 6-2 on aggregate was hugely impressive, Sanchez Watt scored two, Kyle Bartley one and our favourite super boy Jacky Wilshere getting the other, why it wasn’t on live is a disgrace.
So with all these injury problems we have you would think we could do better than to keep rolling out fish head, if Wenger doesn’t think we have better in reserve, then what’s the point in having a reserve team? What’s the point in this production line of talent if it never gets there, Kolo came straight in the team and Djourou, although bought at the same time as Senderos is hardly a regular, and he’s injury prone, we have Nordveit, Bartley and Ayling so I’m wondering if one of those could step up, I don’t know, just a question, but I would sooner shove Wilshere in on the right than keep putting Eboue in there.
I feel that Ramsey and Wilshere are just wasting their time bench warming, Silvestre is a bench warmer, Wilshere and Ramsey should be playing in the reserves if they aren’t featuring in the first team, keep them match fit at least.
Bischoff turned out to be a disappointment didn’t he? I hope we don’t sign any more like him in the summer. At least with the team playing like we are (mostly) we will attract world class stars, let’s just hope he signs some eh?
We are still only 2 signings from being unbeatable in my opinion, we need a world class defender and a world class defensive midfielder, if Song continues to develop great, but history has shown us that we need two players in each position, I mean, look at our defence now!!! I rest my case.
Anyway enjoy today Grovers and blog stalkers alike, it’s St George’s day and had the EPL been about when George was saving his Princess, then he would have been a gooner, how do I know? Trust me, I just know!
P.S. I have tickets available for the Boro’ game, e-mail in if you are interested.
