That’s right, Johan Djourou and Koscielny, that’s what Wenger said, he doesn’t want to harm their progress. Yes I agree those two do look good and that partnership could indeed flourish and when Vermaelen comes back we really are spoilt for choice, but people, we never have a set of fit centrebacks, Vermaelen may be out all season, Squillaci isn’t good enough and Song is not a centre back.
He should buy Samba, Ramos or Zapata, will we always need quality at the back, always. And that lot are available now. Ramos would ensure Cesc stays and it will send out a message to Barca.
Onto the Wigan game, I expect we’ll have our first choice team to choose from and I hope we keep up the urgency we play with following a ‘couldn’t give a rats arse’ performance like Ipswich away or Leeds at home.
With Nasri on fire, Cesc back to his most influential best and Robin finding that edge that made him the deadliest striker in the Premiership, we are looking good.
Wilshere and Song look as solid as you could hope for in the middle and Sagna has found his first season form again, so we are looking good all over the pitch, Djourou and Koscielny are forming a formidable partnership at the back, but for me the biggest surprise is Chezzer between the sticks.
He not only looks the real deal, he gives the defence immense confidence and we play at the back with a swagger I haven’t seen since Mad Jens. Arsene, you must keep him in goal, he’s miles better that Almunia and Fabianski, the players are more comfortable and the fans love him, since he’s been in goal not one person on Le Grove has called for a keeper, and that my friends says it all.
Work on your distribution Chezzer and you’ll be our keeper for the next 15 years.
Arsene, I don’t care what Fabianski does in training, he isn’t as good as Chezzer on match days, so don’t play him. Also it’s obvious that Almunia isn’t our keeper anymore so sell him, he doesn’t deserve this treatment, he’s a nice bloke, move him on.
Now that brings me nicely onto Denilson, stop denying he didn’t mean it, he did, he said it and he dissed our top two keepers, nothing was lost in translation, he’s arrogant and average, he doesn’t track back and the fans don’t want him, move him on, have you learned nothing from Gallas and Adebayor?
Keeping a player in the team no one likes is madness, you spent years telling us that there was no problem with Gallas, you lied, we found out Kolo was sold because of him and also, Nasri wouldn’t shake his hand when we played the spuds, that was pretty obvious, but you decided we were all too stupid to be told.
Well we all now know there is a rift with Denilson, we all saw the interview, we’ve all seen the denials, but we also have insiders that tell us the players don’t like him, ship him out and save the dressing room spirit, he didn’t work out, don’t be churlish, you can’t always be right.
We have a nice easy run coming up Grovers, so maximum points is a must, starting tomorrow.
Have a great day Grovers, tomorrow we begin our quest for the title!
P.S. It’s joke Friday and I’ll let Ricky Gervais kick things off… what a star, he made me proud to be British!
