St Totts day nears…

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!

    The snooker final is a cracker this year – looks like it’s going to go down to the last 2 frames.

  2. useroz

    Whatever improvements Giroud has made, he’s not the WC striker we lack. Just that 10/ 15% missing….a better touch here, a step faster there.

  3. Arsene's Nurse

    Two deflected goals. Good movement off the ball from Giroud when he sees Cazorla pick the ball up. He runs left and takes the defenders away leaving a one-on-one for Ramsey.

    As the announcer pointed out…

    Is Cazorla right footed or left footed?

    That Spaniard is ridiculous!!!
    ———————————-
    It’s lovely to watch. His two-footedness is what every English kid should aspire to. I used to spend hours with a tennis ball playing wall ball to get my left foot up to scratch.

    He may well have done but I don’t understand a word of the Russian feed I watching.

    Believe it or not but some of us are actually capable of reading the game and don’t have to rely on pundits to point stuff out.

  7. Cesc Appeal

    Ozil is a delight to watch right now.

    Sanchez brilliant.

    Ramsey brilliant.

    Cazorla has been excellent.

  8. SomeRandomGunner

    Sanchez has been unbelievable when he is ready to make runs off the ball and let others create for him. The FA cup semi was when he made good runs and not get pulled towards the ball.

    Today he made 3 excellent runs. He is going to be some player next season.

  9. Goondawg

    Intelligent play from the big French guy. His movement and constant presence pulls these defenders allowing our other players like Ramsey, Sanchez and Ozil to be in 2-on-2 or 1-on-1 situations

  10. gazzap

    Ruthless and clinical. As the half wore on we looked more and more dangerous. Hull started to take risks and we punished them. really impressed so far. Just keep that focus second half.

  11. Spellbound

    “If we win by 5 we would go second

    !Now that’s progress !”

    Its coming mate, wait and see. 😉

  12. Insomnia

    Fucking hell – my 23-1 score line prediction is not working!

    Need a goal every 2 minutes now

  13. daz

    “Ramsey one the top midfielders in the country” and that’s from JC, through gritted teeth mind

    Bergkamp634 goal will take us to second, on away goal/head-to-head rule over Man city City

    —-

    Erm they don’t use head to head rule in the PL. Goals scored if GD is the same.

  15. Nasri's Mouth

    So maybe playing Ozil, Cazorla AND Ramsey in the same side does work.

    Who’d be a football manager hey ?

    4 goal will take us to second, on away goal/head-to-head rule over Man city City,

    I think it goes on goals score for first then head to head ? unless the rules have changed ?

  17. Joe

    Nasri,

    It’s Fucken hull. They have absolute shit

    Some of you lot are so daft it’s unbelievable

  18. Joe

    How successful was this v Chelsea last week when we needed 3 points??

    Short sightedness in abundance here

    Wait, how much more money do we spend than hull. That means everything.

  19. salparadisenyc

    I think most are aware of Hull’s shortcomings… as most are aware of ours.
    Plenty of time to bugger this… but fucking hell take a bit of enjoyment out of that 45.

    20 to go… get the fuck in boys.

  20. Joe

    Another season of not winning the title and we are winning a dead rubber match at the end of the season. Great goals but I’m not going to jerk off over the result that really means nothing.

    Of course second place is progress. My mistake.

  21. John T.

    Have a Leis City fan sending me updates. He’s going crazy as an Arsenal win allows his team to slide by Hull in Table.

  22. Joe

    The form of this season has nothing to do with next!

    La kings won the Stanley cup last season, this season they missed the playoffs.

    Each season is a totally separate entity.

  23. Joe

    How many goals we scored v Chelsea last 5 matches.

    How many wins v Man U in the league lately?

    Keep bigging up a 3-1 lead v hull.

  24. Joe

    I love an arsenal victory as much as you all but when title is lost and 4th is guaranteed I’m sorry but the excitement is a bit subdued

  25. useroz

    Self unflicted goal really. Lost the ball and Kos unable to get it far enough…..

    2H really falt. No tempo…

    Nearly a second!!!!

    Fuck sake. Step on it. Ramp it back up NOW.

  26. Nasri's Mouth

    That’s two games this season where Hull have scored after the ref fails to give a foul in the build up.

    Can’t remember who the ref was in the home game

  27. daz

    Oh god were fucking shit I hate this club I hate my life so much why couldn’t I be a Chelsea fan

  28. Thomas

    “Best performance of the season, if we can keep this title winning form going into next year Rodders.”

    Funny how it coincides with playing one of the worst teams in the league.

  29. Insomnia

    Ospina too short
    Mert too slow
    Coq too cheap
    Cazorla too old
    Ozil too weird
    Giroud too French

  30. Joe

    Wish I was a great a fan as Daz. He’s the best supporter ever. Omg. Look he wears the full kit to every match with his in wenger we trust hat.

    He’s a goober through and through

  31. Joe

    You know me so well Alex! Go on and have a party and open bud parade over a victory over hull, again which means nothing

  32. daz

    Joe why you picking on me? Did you think my comment was in any way directed at you? Because they weren’t am I not allowed to feel that way

  33. Joe

    Wallace.

    You’re so clever. I’ve probably been to more arsenal matches than you and I live in canada

  34. goona

    One touch flicks here and there…They nick a goal and we’ll shit ourselves…OMG wilt-shire……

  35. Nasri's Mouth

    I’m sure if there’s a camera showing the subs bench, it’ll have Walcott on it, quietly sobbing
