Here we go everyone, top 4 destiny is in our hands, all we need to do is go to the current Champions and beat them 4-0 in an away game.
Not really. This will be a beast of a game. Or will it? No, it will be, because we’re Arsenal and we are the best friend of ANY manager under a little pressure.
Pep G is going to go all out to make sure Arteta gets what’s coming to him. Mikel left the nest, he must be punished. He’s basically the European Union right now… my dad was all like, ‘free me from these crazy rules that don’t affect me’, then the EU was like, ‘How do you like queues at airports, bitch.’
Pep is basically queues at airports.
OR, there is a counter-narrative. The season is done. There is only one thing left for Pep to achieve, that’s a raised middle finger to the bastards at UEFA for kicking him out of the Champions League. Sane and KDB are coming back to fitness, will he risk them? Probably. But how hard will they go knowing they have a HUGE game against Madrid on TUESDAY. They also have an easy game against Burnley on Saturday. City either rest players, which might work for us. Or, the players rest themselves, putting in a half shift. Or, they absolutely fucking batter us. Arteta has made us tougher to beat. He hasn’t been beaten on the road since he joined… he’s also not played a City like club. I’m hoping that he packs the midfield with players that can put in a shift and move about. I’d love him to spring an counter attacking game, I’m just not sure we’re equipped to change the way we play so early on in the Arteta story. We can barely play the one way he’s trying to implement at the moment (personnel issues).
Ok, so the game has been postponed because the Olympiacos top dog has coronavirus and the Premier League don’t want to risk anything.
That’s the sort of elite strategising I was hoping for when we signed Arteta. He saw the sniffles, sensed the moment, and jumped on it. Stone-cold killer. I love it.
We were not in good shape for that game. Now we have the chance to bring some injured players back into the mixer. The opportunity to find a bit of form… and the big one… pray City are further along in the race for Champions League glory. Imagine if they reschedule in between a semi or a quarter-finals? WOULD BE SO GOLD.
Anyway, short post. I trust after 2 weeks, the chances of Arsenal players being struck down with anything are slim. Let’s wait it out and rack up 3 points against Brighton this weekend (if we play). That’s an absolute MUST.
On the virus thing… I really hope they don’t cancel the Premier League. Just play it behind closed doors. Let’s not lose our minds, there’s a way to play games without mass gatherings.
Before I go. CAN WE ALL SEND A LOL THE WAY OF SPURS FANS AND MOURINHO FAN BOYS!
‘I think Jose has changed, he has new backroom staff, he’s over his marriage issues, he has a new outlook’
Totally spanked by a young progressive young coach that basically said dissecting Spurs from a tactical perspective was a piece of piss.
‘Look at the injuries’
Grow up, those players gave nothing, there was no plan, they are stuck in 2011. You HATE to see it.
Cannot believe anyone would watch his smirking prezzer after and still pine for him… that after a week where he cunted off his record signing in the press. He’s poison and finished. He literally thinks he can call someone a fat bitch in the press and they’ll be motivated to impress him. He does not understand the kids of today, and I am so, so glad about that.
Right, see you in the comments. x
