Super quick post this week because I’m ripping it up in Berlin the first half of this week.
I missed the game at the weekend due to unforeseen circumstances. Bad times.
From what I’ve read, the difference was Alexis again. The little genius has found the pace of the Premier League and he’s smashing it. Wenger compared him to Suarez. Fair shout. He has all the unpredictability and class to become that important for us.
We need to manage him though. Becoming a favourite of the manager is sometimes as bad for your health as falling out with him. A player of that intensity needs to be managed and monitored. A fresh Sanchez is a devastating one. Combine him with some of our other pace men… Theo, Chambo and Ramsey… well, it’s all rather exciting. Especially when Ozil returns.
I watched the United game. Amazing how badly LVG is getting it wrong. I thought he’d be a disaster, wasn’t sure he’d be a disaster this quickly. The only thing keeping him out of the press for making shoddy decisions seems to be his scary face. The press will man up soon and you’d imagine the big questions about his suitability will drop. Always fun to see them lose, especially when the ref did all he could to help them with some appalling decisions.
It’s a big month ahead, bit of Champions League this week in a must win then a return to our Premier League assault.
Have a great day!
