Ok, so this is a quick one as I have many exciting things happening today, namely, hanging out with someone English later.
Can’t wait to shoot this shit about the weather, flaccid tea and how they say my name over here.
RIGHT. Things we need to see today.
A REACTION: Yeah, that’s right, we need to see a first team reaction to the loss at Chelsea. Sure, we feel hard done by, but that’s life. The team need to find their balls, have a serious word with them and make this evening work for them. We took an absolute spanking last time after beating City. Hopefully we get some click going today and we can show them that we are kings.
SANCHEZ: Ok Alexis, you’ve been back for two games. Today, I want to see you unleash fury. You’ve got energy in your legs, you’ve a goal under your belt. Go out and destroy Southampton and lead this team. We’re heading into the business end of the season, our most fearsome warrior needs to be at his most aggressive and dogged. Big game for YOU.
OZIL: I kind of feel he’s still shaking that ‘luxury player’ tag. He drifts in and out of games. He’s always deadly. But what we need from him is a bit of that leadership grit we’ve seen in spits and spats. He’s our best player, perhaps the best player in the country at the moment. It’ll count for nothing if he doesn’t win something. He’s 27 years old now, time to show you’ve got that fight gear in the locker.
THE BRITISH CORE: Come on boys, where you at? Namely, Theo and Chamberlain. Those two need to pull themselves out of their middle class malaise.
‘Oh, things aren’t going right for me and I’m not functioning right. Feel sorry for me, please fetch my blanket.’
NO. These two have a lot of talent. But they also have a talent for going missing and playing in an insular way. We need these two to find some form. We’ll not have Jack or Rosicky back for the run in, so we need some of our flops to step up and show they’re worth the money.
FANS: Come on fans. Come on. I know some games are boring, but the team needs you on their side tonight. Big noise. Leave work at 0530 on the dot. Get tanked up before you get in. GET ROWDY. They need you out there!
RIGHT. That’s me done. HAVE FUN. I actually might not even get to watch it. But know this, I’m checking my tweets under the desk during my meeting.
COME ON ARSENAL!
