Hull City this evening. Excellent news. I do wish miserable Arsenal fans would stop moaning that there’s a 16 point gap at the top of the league. We have 2 games in hand over
We have to win those two games. But now City are pulling away in second, there really is a fight on to make up the ground.
This season has represented progress. I have no idea why so many people are in denial about that. If we finish second and we win the FA Cup, that’s a big leap from last year. We’ve tackled injuries, we’ve tackled big game tactics and we have the most balanced side we’ve seen in years.
However, the season isn’t over. There’s still a big fight on this evening in Hull. We still have to turn up against the little teams.
They’ll be fired up and confident after beating Liverpool. If we’re not on our game, we could end up with some serious egg on our faces. No one needs that. Not on a bank holiday Monday.
I think the side probably picks itself at the moment. I feel like this could be a good game to bring Theo into the fold. It’s important to make sure our players are fresh for the FA Cup final and I think it’s important some of the fringe players feel comfortable and loved… because if there’s a big injury, you need them coming back into the frame in a solid state of mind.
I’d like to see WELBZ given a run out, show his mettle. He’s been a bit of a weird one. On the face of it, I’m not disappointed about his offering this year. I think he has a lot of talent. However, his productivity scores, are, well, very Welbeckesque. He’s either going to break into the next level of striker next year, or he’s going to sink in oblivion and irrelevance.
Good to hear Arsene Wenger talking down the work we’ll be doing in the summer. He’s talking about bringing the loan boys back into the fold. I’m not sure what to make of those comments. All the loan players are bombing at a the moment. Sanogo can’t get a start, the rest haven’t contributed much in the way of goals. I’d imagine we’ll be selling them on this summer.
We just need to focus on the middle of the park and potentially replacing Theo Walcott. I don’t think we need major surgery. We have a very big squad of players. We just need to add elite quality in the middle of the park. I’d like a new keeper, but I can’t see it happening unless he moves on Chezzer… but he won’t move on Chezzer if he’s on £90k a week like its rumoured. That boy will be sitting on the bench for a very long time if that’s the case.
Chelsea landed the league yesterday. Can’t know Jose. He came he saw he conquered… yet again. It was so easy for him this year. Unbelievable work. I don’t like how they play, but I like how they just get the job done. Hats off and all that…
It’s also St Totts day this evening… well, if we get anymore than a point. They’ve been a bit quiet, haven’t they? Impressively easy this year. I do like their manager though, I think he’ll come good. So we need to make sure we’re always progressing.
Right, that’s me done. Have a bloody great day!
