I was thinking about all the excuses the press give for people like Rooney, Best and Merson, they say flawed genius, we have modern day ones like Gascoigne, Tyson, Woods and John Daley, but is it flawed genius or is it dumbness. Now I won’t have a bad word said about Paul Merson, that was indeed flawed genius, but the others are and were for me the products of never having done a stroke in their lives and doing precisely what they wanted to do, now Gascoigne, Tyson, Best and Daly came in before the super injunction so they have mitigation, but the others, well they just need a size nine up their jacksy’s.
We have a player in Jack Wilshere, he for me is a genius and the press are always looking for him to have done something wrong, wacking a cab driver is normal if they have a pop at you first, taking naughty pictures with a mobile phone is too when you’re 17, blimey girls do it just as much, but I hope they leave Jack alone and let him become Arsenal’s next big thing, along with Theo and Aaron these kids can take us places.
Well no better place to do it than this weekend against Liverpool, the team version of Gareth Bale (media bitches of the moment).
Andy Carroll is being lauded as a superstar, though he should be being talked about as the costliest unproven footballer since Daley went to Man City in a bygone era, but he is now the next big thing, hopefully Johan will be back to take care of him, at least we won’t have a big flapper in goal to get on the wrong side of him like we did against Newcastle.
I would like to see this team out against Liverpool, injuries permitting.
Sagna Djourou Kozzer Clichy
Wilshere Cesc (Ramsey if Diaby is injured again)
Theo RVP Nasri
I would also bring Arshavin on at half time as he is Liverpool’s biggest tormenter, but bring him on and make him work for it as an impact sub, and I mean at half time, give him a chance, one of our team will have a stinker and let him take that suckers place, Maureen used to make changes when he needed to to, not on 67 minutes, time to change tactics Arsenal, all the visiting teams have sussed you out, ask Sunderland and Blackburn, the great thing about Liverpool is they have to win, so they won’t be parking the bus.
I think this sort of line up will battle and overpower Liverpool, we then have the Spuds and they must win, so we need to say to the team, a handful of games and we can win this league boys, no time to cry fatigue, no time to whine about too many games, one month and then you are away until July and a big pay rise to look forward to.
Come on Arsenal, this is the first time in years you are still in with a shout in April, show your boss he was right, show the Fizman family Danny was right and show Stan the man he has invested well.
Time to stand up and be counted, you are no longer kids, you are men, or at least you have to be men!
Have a great day grovers, this is it now!
