Well good morning BRITAIN.
What a farce you have yourselves in there. I leave for 2minutes, and what happens? No Marmite on the shelves. What a disgrace.
Those Brexit realities kicking in hard.
What does it mean for Arsenal? I’ll tell you what it means. It means teams like the New York Redbulls are going to pick off the superstars of Europe and build a super league. It also means tying Ozil down to a salary that works will be tougher. His £140k a week is looking ligher by the minute as the pound tanks. Even worse when he sees what his pals are earning elsewhere.
Absolute carnage… but hey, at least those borders are safe and we can eradicate some of those pesky European Laws that were the bane of so many people’s everyday lives.
BACK ONTO FU$BALL.
We play Swansea this weekend. I mean, a bogey team and a half by my reckoning. We always have problems with them, regardless of how pony their form is heading into the tie. Bob Bradley USA USA GET IN THE HOLE has been appointed as the first Premier League manager of American heritage. Wenger had this to say.
‘Winning is the best way of dealing with it, just [do it] after playing us! You do not want to create skepticism because of where you’re from. What is important is that you’re qualified for the job you do, no matter where you’re from.’
Funny how American folk have to battle harder to have any sort of say at the table of football. Unfairly tarnished with the ‘soccer’ word and unfairly labeled us lacking knowledge around the game. Watching football over here is great, loads of lunatic fans completely obsessed with the game to the same levels as UK fans. It’s great that Bob B has landed a job here after working some pretty pony roles over the last 30 or so years.
Not great for us though. Really not great for us. That new manager injection of ‘go on, give it a go’ might hit hard at exactly the wrong time.
ABSOLUTE BANTER FROM WENGER when he spoke with a few of the exlegends about great teams.
‘You NEVER win the world cup with a young team’
You’ve gotta love that. All those years of convincing us that the future was in youth… all lies. Who could of guessed it?
Still, good news now is that we have a very nice blend of young and old. We have Hector and Iwobi ripping it up. We have a nice mix of mid-age players in Rambo, Xhaka and Elneney… then we have the older heads in Santi, Per and Kos. I mean seriously, if Wenger can’t mount a decent challenge this year, I don’t know when he’ll be able to.
I’m excited to see how Arsenal tackle this relatively easy run of games. This is all about the build into our hellish December schedule. What I don’t want to see is Santi in every single game. I’d like to see some respite for Ozil. Maybe a bit of Rob Holding and Gabriel so they get some game time into their legs and some psychological love. It’s important to make sure the squad feels like they’re part of the success… give them some time so when we’re ready to call on them, they can make a difference. I’d also like to see a bit of Lucas Perez. Sanchez might say he wants to play every game, but guess what, his body won’t agree with him. Absolutely key our whole squad isn’t exhausted by January… because we might be in the mix and we need to be able to go full steam ahead.
Wenger is a magician at the 75% ‘this is good’ model. He’s yet to work out how he can push his squads the full 100%. Let’s hope his backroom team are pushing him hard to break a habit of 10 years.
I’m positive about it… I’ve seen this story before… but hey, if you can’t enjoy the good times while they’re happening, pack it up and go home.
AM I RIGHT?
Yeah I’m right.
