Happy good morning to you!
So, congratulations to Jeremy Corbyn on winning the opposition leadership race this weekend. A Gooner forming a shadow cabinet. Very good. If he gets in, it’d be like Franco at Madrid (without the bad stuff, ya hear me?)
‘Sure guys, I understand you think there’s hypocrisy in my manifesto, but if there’s a more important national interest than Arsenal having the right level of funding for a new striker, I’d like to hear it’
Nice one Jezza. Reus and Benzema would get my vote.
So what do we have in the news?
Chelsea are in a total mess. Spurs are in a mess. Man, life is good.
Arsenal, back in the top four. Sweet stuff.
Our next Premiership game is against Chelsea. An opportunity to really put some sackable pressure on the flailing Jose.
Jose is the master of getting a team just right to win things, but if he’s not constantly given top up money, he struggles. He has his main centre back on the way to the club house in his career. Ivanovic looks very much like he’s done. Cesc was god awful at the weekend, contributing so weakly, you almost have to ask if there’s something wrong in his personal life. Costa isn’t that great. Nothing is clicking. They’re all tired. Amazing turn of events.
Zagreb away in our first Champions League game of the season. It’s a big one. If you win your first away game, it sets you up nicely. Lose it, and you’re under pressure straight away. Chasing your tail in Europe isn’t fun.
Wenger has already said he’s looking to rotate, so his starting line up is going to be interesting, especially as Chelsea play at home on Wednesday. They have the advantage.
To be honest, it’s quite frustrating the Premier League have that game as the early kick off on the Saturday. Surely, for the league, and the players, it’d be smarter to put it on the Sunday so we have fresher legs for one of the biggest global spectacles of the season.
Another case of TV having all the power. Whatever suits the money masters I guess.
Right, I’m first day back in work, I’m jet lagged and I have an eye infection.
Total dreamboat over here.
SPEAK TOMORROW x
