It’s QPR away today which should make for a pretty easy game. They have many quality players, far too many to find themselves in a relegation battle, but that’s what you get when the only attraction to your club is an outrageous pay packet.
Apparently it’s absolute carnage behind the scenes. Nobody gives a crap about the club, they have major cliques and Harry doesn’t have things under control at all. It all makes for simple prediction, but this is the Premier League and Arsenal are Arsenal.
We have a relatively fit squad of players to pick from. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Jack back in the fold today. I’m not sure if Podolski will start after his poor performance against United. That said, if the plan is to convert him back into a striker, lining him up against QPR wouldn’t be a bad pick me up. Their defence has been a shambles all year. Chris Samba really didn’t justify that horrendous outlay. How’s that going to feel in the Championship?
Anyway, it should be a good game. It’ll be the last time we see QPR in the league for a while.
In other news, the crescendo of a week of serious PR for Arsene and his future was met at yesterday’s conference.
“I want to stay (on past 2014) if I do well and if I consider or the club considers that I do well, that is all.”
An interesting way of framing his desires. I can’t imagine the club think he’s doing too well at the moment. Red empty seats dot the stadium, fans are spitting blood online and I’d suspect there has been an impact on things like shirt sales. The management are clearly hurt by the impact of Wenger’s transfer policy over the last few seasons and the performances are clearly unacceptable.
Wenger isn’t dim… he’ll want to keep this job and the prestige that goes with it and I’m sure he’s privately accepted making a splash is the only way to go this summer. The noise around Cesc Fabregas is real, but he’ll have to push for the move. Villanova said as much yesterday. Arsenal will have spend big to bring him back, but from what I understand, they still have outstanding payments on Song.
He’d be an incredible player to bring back…
We’re also looking out for a top class striker, a keeper, a centre back and a midfielder. Expect the striker to be a major purchase. I know Wenger has made noises about Remy, but from what I’m hearing, we’re in talks with the agents of far more prestigious names. Whether they’re interested is another question all together. Do you want to be one of 4 great strikers, or do you want to be the main man? You’ll be the main man at Arsenal and the fans will adore you… that’s always appealing.
If Wenger wants the club to think he’s doing a good job, he needs to do a good job. He has it all to prove this summer. That’ll be fun to watch… let’s hope he has the magic touch, could be a very expensive balls up if we need up with 5 Gervinho’s.
That’s all I’ve got time for this morning. Keep it mega today people. Mega.
