After yesterday’s post when we were asking you and all the other blogs to sing a song letting Cesc know how much we love him, a few things came up, some surprising, and some not.
The first surprise was my Spanish isn’t as good as I thought, the first person that corrected me, I changed the Spanish, then all day long others came on and corrected that correction, the idea was to sing this ‘HANDS OFF CESC FABREGAS’ and in English, it still is, I was just trying to be clever with my Spanish, so it didn’t come off, just be glad he wasn’t Chinese!
So today I will publish the real message, I hope you all remember! And I hope those of you that are going sing your lungs out!
There are a few blogs that have already intimated they will support LadyArse, Aculturedleftfoot, Arsenal Addict, Joppa Road, You are my Arsenal, Highbury Heart and Gooner talk, hopefully today more will join.
It’s not just the bloggers though, you guys all have a massive role to play, you’ve all got Facebook and Twitter accounts, if you can, pester other bloggers, players and Arsenal journo’s to mention the song and you never know, we could get somewhere.
“Hands off Cesc Fabregas” (to the regular tune of “we’ve got…”)
This idea supersedes the individual sites here, lets hope all the others see it that way, we’re all gooners at the end of the day and we all want Cesc feeling inspired and special on one of the most important nights of our season.
Onto the game, well done Chelsea, you really are proving the point that money doesn’t always buy you success, I said at the start of the season they are too old to be a force and they would slow down in the back half of the season, they haven’t disappointed have they! And on top of that Roman is no longer the richest Russian in London football anymore, ha, ha, I bet that hurts! They’ll struggle to finish in Europe this season, it couldn’t have happened to a nicer team, that and West Ham getting the Olympic stadium have made my February.
Theo is saying that if we chase after every ball and get in their faces we can win this tie, as has Jack, I have been saying that all season, chase every ball, get in their faces and shoot on site, that’s all they do, and they can’t be that good, we came back from two down last year and don’t forget, we went one up at the Camp Nou with half a team, and anyone that calls their ground Camp, has to have something wrong with them!
So a day today to ponder the big one, a day to get excited about the biggest game we’ve had since the ManU semi in the same cup, this time though we are better, stronger and more skillful, prepare for a rip roaring post tomorrow.
The big question is will he play Samir, and if he does, where? I always had him down as an attacking midfielder, he seems to have played a lot of games up front, either way it’s him or Arshavin, I’m not fussed, the little Russian will produce the goods, of that I have no doubt, maybe save Samir for the return leg, either way Theo and Jack have to start.
Have a great day grovers, tomorrow is the big one!
I will be doing a special one off post tonight and that will stay on until the pre-Barca post at 9am. Read it, it’s a great cause and tomorrow is a day to be kind to everyone, don’t forget Santa knows who’s been naughty or nice!
