Hey there, you, yes you… wipe down that disappointment, we’ve a big game against Besiktas to worry about this Wednesday and there’s simply no time to sit here moping about the misery of knowing Arsene Wenger isn’t going to change.
We need to start ploughing through ideas to get this team ticking… I’d say ‘again’ but that would indicate we’ve been smashing it at some point in the last two months.
Right, the good news is that Giroud is apparently fit.
He was pretty handy when he came on the other day. I can’t deny him that. So in light of Wenger killing his 45min experiment with Ozil
… and let me put this to you…. felt like Wenger had been told to use pace by his backroom team, to use Sanchez centrally, not totally agreed, then took the first chance he could to yank him when it didn’t look 100%…
we have to consider what we do have going into the game. For me, you have to load that front line with pace again. If he’s insistent on having one speed demon and someone a bit more centre midfield-ish, he should go for a front line of Rosicky, Giroud and Sanchez. Midfield should be Jack, Ramsey with Ozil in at number 10. Defence is what defence is.
I think that should have more than enough to take down a very average side.
In other news, Wenger is very happy with his forwards and he sees Sanogo as important. Well, what can you say about that other than feel really disappointed. Wenger does it his way regardless of how perverse that might seem. He might be proved right in a few years and if he’s not, he’ll slip him out the back door like he did with Nik B.
There are rumours floating around about Winston Reid. Arsenal have looked at him and he fits the bill. Young, keen to make the jump and a leader with size and power behind him. He’s also in a contract dispute. I’d be happy with him coming in. Not as happy as I’d be having a superstar like Hummels, but hey, what can you do? It’d be unlike Arsene to recruit the best he could for his budget!
Lukas is no the way out, which I mentioned a month ago. In a similar situation to Santi, he doesn’t have it for the league physically and Lukas never really lived up to the bill technically. Great finisher, but not what we thought we were getting. Santi is another one, very talented player, but he’s losing it physically and he’s expensive. I’d imagine Lukas will be the last of our exits if he does opt to move.
Right, I’m back to work, have a marv day.
