Tomas Rosicky said the boss took everyone by surprise by picking a team from the first team squad, it shows he wants to try and win it, the fact he has not bothered for all these years is beyond me, but with the chavs, scousers and shitty all out now, we stand a real chance of winning if we can avoid the mancs, well it is the Chinese year of the trophy isn’t it?
I was thinking when I watched Chris Smalling score for the mancs last night how Arsene has never had a home growner make the first team at centre back, Djourou doesn’t count as he’s always injured and used to be a DM, like Song, who really isn’t a CB, after 13 years, I find that a bit strange, but after my initial caution with Kozzer, I’m pleased to see we have finally got 3 centrebacks that I would call world class, and aside from our keepers, we for first the first time since the invincibles, look solid at the back.
Yes I know we had Senderos and Upson, but they were never in the class of what we have now, so they don’t count.
Well done Arsene, for finding some decent CB’s and for trying to win the league cup at last, you saw how much that meant to the fans, beating the scum away was the perfect lift for the coming weeks, as much of a downer as it was for the chavs to lose, magic.
I thought Gibbs and Eboue worked better than Clichy and Sagna, I hope that makes those two buck their ideas up, now they have some real competition.
And to think we did all that with 8 players out, and that’s what I find so amusing about Van der Vaart’s comments that the spuds are bigger than Arsenal, mate you may have had some youngsters out there, but you didn’t play our first team, ha, ha how funny was that to see Harry’s face at the end, priceless!
I’m not quite sure what Lansbury’s position is but the more he plays, the better he’ll become, so if he is in line for DM, that gives us quiet a few options, Denilson, who I thought played well, Song, Eastmond, Lansbury (he can play there) and even Vermaelen, so for the first time I can remember, we have cover all over the pitch, we have Bendtner coming back very soon, Robin, JET, Chamakh, Vela, Walcott and Arshavin up top, we are well equipped, now we have to go out and win something.
Jack Wilshere starred against Braga, played a cracking composed second half against Sunderland and bossed the spuds, proving we don’t need to rest players as much as we thought we did, if he stays clear of injury, he may get player of the year, never mind young player of the year.n
Watching us beat the spuds on Tuesday gave me as much pleasure as winning the FA cup, I was beside myself and spent the whole evening racking my brains for a spud I could text, but who has spud friends eh?
Have a great day Grovers, we finally have a season to look forward to, and the players who can deliver, and don’t forget, we still have Ramsey to come back, as Pedro would say, Happy Days!
