Now you may all laugh at that headline, Robin went over on his ankle so he’s a crock, the point is that Robin is always going over on something, Robin makes Darren Anderton look like a health fitness fanatic gay robot.
I love Robin and have always believed he could become the world’s best player, I know, I say the same about Theo, and I still believe it, but they are both crocks and should we keep faith with them both, we should however view them as our luxury players, injured more than they are fit, and that’s a fact.
So what do we do then? We just bought Chamakh, we’ve yet to see if he is good enough but I think he will be, then we have to look at the others, Arshavin is not really a striker, more a hole player, Eduardo I think has had it, Vela isn’t good enough and Bendtner has got right up my nose with his ‘my dream is’ comments, and I don’t think he’ll ever be world class, well about as world class as Santa Cruz or John Carew, and I wouldn’t want either of them.
So I think we need to sell Vela, Bendtner and Eduardo and use the money to buy Dzeko and Hazard.
We are today being linked with Taylor of Newcastle, I’d have him, the sort of dirty bastard we need, but what about Nedum Onouha of Man City? He’s big, skilful and English, despite his name!
Man City would sell him, he’s young and would fulfil the Wenger criteria, he also has EPL experience, so maybe a punt on him would be a good move.
Back to Robin, if this world cup doesn’t get him, something else will, I bet I could get 5000-1 at Paddy Power on him completing a season uninjured, we know it will happen, so it’s time we planned ahead, three strikers in our squad are not good enough to take over, we can get good money for them now and use it wisely.
Don’t make the same mistakes as you did last season Arsene!
Since Song cemented his place he now seems to be picking up injuries, there’s a surprise, still it proves we need a spare, I quite like Toulalon, anybody?
Cesc is beginning to pick up injuries on a regular basis so maybe Gourcuff would be a smart move as well.
I’m getting my wish list in early as Tuesday is just around the corner, so maybe by then we will compile the definitive list, that you, the readers would prefer.
Have a great day Grovers, no football today, but there is the cricket, we can make Bangladesh follow on and Lewis or Jensen could win the Grand Prix. So unless you are German, Australian or indeed Bangladeshi, you’ll be routing for them.
Bless you all and peace on earth, wherever you come from!
