League Cup week when you’re not in it makes for some very boring news.
I mean, I’m going to end up getting dragged back into the injury thing. Santi Cazorla seems to have done himself a wrongun’ with his ligaments. News isn’t in on how bad the problem is. We don’t have the gory details. But whatever the news, it’s not good for a player in their thirties to have done something like that…
Hopefully it’s the least severe of the issues.
Raymond Verheijen has been trapping off in the press about Wenger and his ways…
“All 23 Arsenal 1st team outfield players were injured in 2015 except for Joel Campbell but still people are in denial & looking for excuses.
“The problem in football is that most people do not see the bigger picture. They are only thinking about the last result & the next game.”
People take solace in the fact he doesn’t have a job at a top club. I’m really not sure how that takes away from the core elements of what he’s said above. The guy trains other coaches on conditioning and he’s been pretty spot on about Arsenal for years. Sure, he uses Arsenal to push his coaching biz, but hey, I can’t sit here and knock self promotion.
I mean, what exactly are people looking for, the Man United fitness coach to come out on the record and give Arsene a kicking in The Mirror? Be serious. If that happened, people would be… ‘Oh, but I mean, he would say that, he works for United’…
I think the worry for me is that fans can deny what’s going on rests with the coach, but does our manager do the same thing? I kind of feel this issue has been going on for so long that there must be a fundamental problem at the highest level. Or, a lack of seriousness about it.
We had a great opening to 2015. Then it all went to shit in the second half. Arsenal haven’t been able to piece together two good halves of a season together in years… if we could sustain our first 11s fitness, we’d be winning titles. Or we’d at least be competing for longer.
We’ve also had about 14 inquiries into the problem and still no change. What’s going on?
WHAT HAPPENED TO SHAD?
Things were looking so good… then what? You started hanging with Per a bit more. He got you on the booze. Now all you do is drink German lager all day in authentic lederhosen?
It’s not good enough.
Anyway, enough of my rabbling.
I’ll be back tomorrow in the AM. UK AM BABY.
