GOOOOOOOD MORNING TO YA’LL.
I might have to miss the Arsenal game on Sunday.
This is a big upset.
It’s impossible to work around though. I’m helpless. Like you are in the hairdressers when your nose is itching but you can’t take your hands out from under the apron.
Anyway, where there’s a will, there’s a way. I have all day at home to think about this.
So what’s new with Arsenal?
Wenger is back to banter with this little pearler on why he didn’t sign Martial.
“Monaco’s statement was always that the two players that would not move were Martial and [Layvin] Kurzawa, so I thought they would maintain that,”
“But in the end both of them moved.”
FACEPALM ME OFF MY DAMN CHAIR.
You asked them politely and they responded politely. AND YOU LEFT IT.
Amazing. I mean, it’s nice to see our middle class sentiments go beyond the football pitch. We really do need to learn a thing or two about signing players when the clubs in question don’t want to let them go.
That comment does nothing to quell the obvious… we’re far too passive when it comes to signing players. Unless someone serves up a player to us, with a thick instruction pack on how to make the deal happen. We don’t sign anyone.
On the game, the banter levels were lower.
“We have an opponent… we cannot afford to drop points now against anyone at home.”
It’s a mega game this evening. We have to win. But we have to win with Sunday in mind. So it’ll be interesting to see how the manager plays this one. We have more of a breather than we did last week. We also have a day more to prepare than Manchester United have. Which is a mega bonus.
Theo Walcott is going to start this evening because Giroud is injured. Hopefully he can bang in a 20minute hattrick then take the rest of the evening off. Ospina is going to start in goal as the deal seems to be that he’s the cup keeper. Quite a risky move, but that’s the way it’s going.
There’s talk that Rambo will not play. Which, again, as a top performer, is a big risk. But look, the squad is what it is and the manager needs to rotate if he wants to compete this season.
So fingers crossed eh?
That’s me done, have a good one!
