Just a quick post today, because it’s Sunday and the weather outside means you’re probably not reading this. Or reading it through squinted eyes on your mobile. Or reading it whilst driving. If you’re driving, please don’t read this.
Right, Thierry is now whoring himself out to the papers as well. Love this line.
“I am convinced we won the league at Arsenal not due to the fact I was banging in goals but because the club had a good squad. Sometimes when I was being given a rest, Sylvain Wiltord or Kanu would come in and Dennis was always there.”
Have an inkling someone is helping him to write in ‘tabloid’.
He thinks we need three strikers to win the league. I just don’t know what’s going on with Thierry at the moment. He’s like a little lost pundit trying to craft a heavily paid living without having too much talent to deliver on the promise. I hope he doesn’t go sour. Well, more sour than he has done so far.
Arsene Wenger has offered Theo a striker shaped olive branch.
‘Being 26 to 32 as a striker is the best age as a striker and I wouldn’t like to miss that golden age. He is naturally gifted to play in this position.’
I don’t really understand this angle. If he can’t be as good as Suarez, then what are we trying to achieve? He’ll just end up like Owen. We’ll turn into long ball merchants. Theo can’t play with his back to goal, he’s not overly technical on the ball and he’s quite small to play that role in our formation. Really think he’s a good wide player, but trying to convince anyone he’ll be a striker is a big ask in my opinion.
Right, really don’t have much drive today. I’ll be back tomorrow with a run down of the new community centre Arsenal have knocked up!
