The only two things in life that won’t betray me, Arsenal and chicken. It’s a sorry life.
So while you’re out, having an inexpensive romantic night at your local curry house because ‘I’m romantic all year round babe’… and not just seriously cheap, I’ll be sitting at home in a pair of lightly stained tracksuit bottoms mulling over my Sunday post considering whether I should call into babe station for a chat about a really provocative article I read in my exgirlfriends Heat magazine (Can’t believe Britney shaved her head?).
What a night.
ANYWAY. Enough about me. Tell me about you? No, save it. This is about Arsenal and the conversation is one way today.
So first up, our new player, Gabriel, can’t speak much English. Wenger says this is a problem. You know, because he can’t understand instructions. He also said he’ll be under pressure from the press.
“The players are always under tremendous pressure because everything they do is analysed by the pundits and the press,”
“The modern player has to live with that – resistance to stress has to be stronger than it was 10 years ago.
“He (Gabriel) will not read the press. He will just focus on his game – that is one of the advantages.
“When I was in Japan, people could say what they wanted.”
I was told by someone in the game that most players are trained not to read their own press. I bet they do though. I couldn’t resist. Unless it was people being mean. I gave up Twitter searching Le Grove a while back. I can’t imagine how horrendous it must be after playing a shocker for a footballer. It’s so grotesque surely it’s gotta be counter productive?
I think Wenger reads his press though. I’m certain of that. He’s made a lot of comments of late about criticism. I like his comment about Japan though. That was funny. I’ve been enjoying the boss this week. I reckon he’s probably quite amusing behind the scenes. Cracking jokes and stuff. I wonder if you can give him shit back?
Anyway, it’ll be nice to see our new boy strut his stuff. He looks a powerful lad. Just what we need. Someone to come in and take the pressure of Per and Kos… but also someone to come in and kick them up a gear on a performance level. Pressure for places. Something you always need.
Wenger went on to say that the top four is a priority. Shocker. It is though. That extra £40m is always a huge bonus. It’ll be interesting to see how this new TV money impacts the teams around us. It’ll give teams like Everton money to bully teams in La Liga and the Bundesliga. We really need to make sure we make that extra revenue count now and kick on with our squad.
So I guess the jist of the comment is that we’ll rest and rotate tomorrow. Which is fine. Our second team should be taking care of Boro. No excuses.
Right, have a great day, don’t choke on those chocolates I know you bought your partner from the Valentines aisle at Lidl.
You total fraud.
