So now it’s official, Cesc is out for the Hull game, but not to worry, Denilson steps in, so we could have a midfield of Diaby, Denilson and Song or even Eboue, Denilson and Song, or wait for it, the ultimate fantasy Denilson, Eboue, Song with Diaby in the hole.
It may be the stuff that my nightmares are made of but it has to be Wenger’s ultimate fantasy team, fortunately though it’s only Hull, and although they did beat us once at home we have stuffed them each time we’ve played them since, so I’m not too worried.
This also seems to be the bosses season for having a whine up and his latest outburst makes no sense, how can he have a go at Wolves for fielding a reserve side when he did the same thing in Greece which gave Standard Leige no chance of qualifying, what’s the difference? Hypocrisy springs to mind, large.
I’m with Tony Pulis on this one, and Pulis also said why would you not expect to play twice a week if you were a young athlete, I agree with him, anyone remember double headers? When you would have to play 90 minutes after 90 minutes because of fixture congestion? …I do.
Anyway, Hull are a shadow of the team that beat us, so I really don’t see much of a problem tomorrow, maybe this is the time to unleash Theo and Vela up front and play Arshavin in the hole, for me the way to beat teams like Hull is to play around them, pass them off the pitch.
What is apparent, is we do miss our big forwards and as we have Robin gone for a season, and who knows how he’ll return and how long it would take, then we really ought to go out and spend at least what we got for Ade.
I had about 4 tons of snow when I trudged to work this morning but London was clear, anyway Grovers I’m tied up most of the day in meetings, so be good to each other!
Today we find out who we play in the next round of the Champions league, let’s hope it’s one of the easier teams left, if in fact there are any easier teams left.
We need to win all of our Christmas period games to keep pace with the leaders but beating Villa is more important now than ever, because the chasing pack are stronger and more numerous than ever before.
So we need to make sure we make use of the January transfer window, I have a feeling we’ll raid the big clubs surplus players, like the Madrid’s of this world.
Remember, tomorrow you’ll see why Wenger has so much faith in this side, tomorrow we’ll bury Hull and get our season back on track, come on the Arsenal!
Finally… for a bit of a Friday laugh, see the results of the UK Golden bins.
We had the largest return on a vote EVER at Le Grove, so I suspect plenty of people forwarded the post onto their mates… and below are the results… there were only 10 votes between the top two… and the favoured ‘other’ was Kolo Toure.
Adebayor, the worst signing of the summer, as confirmed by the Le Grove Grovers!!!
