After that same old same old England debacle last night, it’s easy to see why we shouldn’t have renewed Capello’s contract, he had a chance to put the Arsenal boy on to liven it up but he didn’t, England’s loss, Arsenal’s gain.
It looks like we’ll have Cesc, Theo and everybody’s enigma Nikki B back for the Brum game, we will also see Hleb back at the Grove too (no laughing), should be a fun match and one I expect to see us show our title credentials once more.
PLEASE ANYBODY GOING, DON’T BOO HLEB, HE WASN’T THAT BIG A LOSS AND HE SUFFERED MORE THAN WE EVER DID!
People like to have a pop at our Nikki but I think he could be the real surprise this season, he has a lot to prove and with the arrival of Chamakh, he has slipped down the pecking order a bit, Nikki, it’s time to deliver, I think he will, it’s his old club and he has something to prove. I tip him to feature and I tip him to score.
If Theo and Cesc are back, we have some team to pick from, with Diaby in the mix, we could have a very tall team too, and against the brummies, we’ll need it.
I would go with this team, he won’t, but he might.
Eboue Koscielny Squillaci Gibbs
Nasri Cesc Wilshere
Theo Bendtner Arshavin
That is a team full of pace and skill, he’ll have Chamakh, Rosicky and Diaby there too if we need to mix it up a bit, I really think it’s time to go with talent, we are at home and we can attack, I’ll be there and I’m fed up with seeing potential but no end product, this forward line has something to prove and if Theo isn’t playing, then Rosicky would be my first choice to go in there.
I have been starved of football for too long, you wouldn’t mind if England had won 5 nil and Jackie boy got a hat-trick, we didn’t and he didn’t play, let’s see if Arsenal for once can benefit from the internationals, so often the cause of much woe, apart from a friendly over Christmas, it’s all Arsenal until April, no more moody weekends, now it begins, Nikki and Theo need games with the ECL coming next week and then the games against the tough teams roll in.
Come on Arsene and come on Arsenal. I don’t do predictions, but I feel 4 goals coming and guess what, they won’t be from Birmingham, time to avenge Eduardo and our championship loss, time to stand up and be counted.
LAST THING, I WOULD SPRING ONE AND GIVE AFOBE A CRACK, HE COULD BE A REAL SURPRISE PACKAGE, HE REMINDS ME OF A CROSS BETWEEN IAN WRIGHT, WRIGHT, WRIGHT AND ANDY COLE, THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY, 60th MINUTE SUB WHEN WE’RE 3 UP, WHO WILL IT HURT APART FROM THE BRUMMIES!
Have a great day grovers, 3 days and we are back in it!
P.S. We’ve got more stories to stoke up the Kick Campaign fire. Rocky Lives over at Arsenal Arsenal has put together a 2 part series on violence and what Journo’s can do to help combat this nonsense (part 1 – part 2). I’ve heard on the grapevine Wrighty7 is going to join the party. If you’ve got a blog, no matter how small or larger, please feel free to contribute (drop me a mail when you have). Oh, and check out the KICK video if you havent!
Finally, Pedro has written a piece in defence of Essex if you fancy something different.
