Rumour has it that Patrick ‘Number 4‘ Vieira is making his long awaited return to the home of beautiful football this coming January. He’s being offered an 18month deal at £70k a week and as part of the deal, he’s promised to take over our troublesome centre midfield role for 6 months, bring some experiences and deliver us the silverware we so crave.
That make a hell of a lot of sense to me. I see it as an Edgar Davids type signing. Someone to come in, raise the bar with battling performances and hopefully give us that extra 5% or so Wenger thinks we need.
Apparently on the shares front it’s looking rosey for all those who believe Kroenke versus Usmanov is a straight up fight of good against evil. I’m still not too sure how that works, but having a cowboy in charge of the club certainly ticks a few of my boxes when it comes to a billionaire owner. I mean really, who else has a cowboy with a funny facial accessory making residence on their top lip?
Onto today’s game. Eduardo seems to be the only fresh injury doubt. Theo could make his long awaited return and Wenger is quite keen to stress he is no longer a kid. Well, until he hits a bad run of form… then he’ll be more than keen to tell us he is only young and we should show more patience.
I’m heading up to the ground today, I’m not really sure what to expect team wise. All I’m looking for is a devastating win. I want to see us at the races from the off and I want to see penetrative drive from us. Sometimes we start a little too lightly and allow teams the chance to build a bit of confidence. We need a performance like the Champions league game in midweek… we need to let our football do the talking and be patient. Cutting out the sloppy mistakes is paramount to our success today and I’m boldly going to predict a score of 2-0 to the men in red with Arshavin at the centre of all that is good.
Have a good on out there today kids and don’t let anyone tell you your not special.
You all are.
See you in the comments!.
