While the devastating news that Robin joins Le List for a month is not what we’d want, it is countered by the opportunities for super Crozilian Eduardo or the Viking Bendtner, I don’t see that as a bad thing as the chances that the latter pair would begin to get irritated at their lack of first team opportunities, coupled with the fact they only have four games to show what they have, I can see nothing other than long term benefits for the team.
The news that the club will not be sold for at least 4 years will mean the redtops have to pick on someone else now, which will again take the pressure off. Arsene being touted as the next chairman will allow him time to bring in DB10 and TH14 as the dream team management pairing in 2012, so all in all, a pretty good week I suggest.
With Captain Willy back to shore up the defensive frailties of late, we now look pretty solid, if we can get through to the year end without any more back four problems we’ll be Ok, by then we should have Djourou back and have the opportunity to buy a new center back, with Richards dire performance at right back for England, his price may have gone down a tad, which could see Lehman going and Robert Green arriving, add that to our 10 point lead in January the future’s looking rosy.
And don’t forget, you read it here first!
Denilson signing a new long term contract would be good news…if long term contracts meant anything, and as we all know, they don’t, but at least he’s signed one, which is better than not signing one.
I expect the boys to come out of the traps against Bolton, we owe them a good hiding, after that, it starts to get tough, but after watching Gerrard make himself look like a donkey, and Rafa not knowing how to pick a side, I’m more confident than I was a month ago.
The ManU game is always tough, but our football is anything other than predictable these days, we now have plans A,B, and C.
I think the Grove is fast becoming a fortress and the atmosphere is becoming like a cup final game, week in week out, so for those of you that are going on Saturday, sing your lungs out, for those of you who aren’t, Karma!
For the next few months we’ll be able to talk about football again, which is what we all want, apart from England winning the World cup on Saturday and Lewis Hamilton (Theo in disguise) winning the F1 Championship on Sunday!
Not too much to ask is it!
