Morning good morning! Alex here, emerging early from my winter hibernation – a lot like the John Lewis bear. I’m tired, hungover and when I find the bastard rabbit that woke me up I’m going to kill it.
It’s been a while friends so I thought I’d do a quick preview of today’s game then run over some issues with you. Agreed? Ok great thanks.
There’s very little going on in the world of news this morning. Sad story eh? If I have nothing to write about. You have nothing to read, so I’m going to bust out a blog regardless and see where we can go with this.
The interesting news this morning outside Arsenal is that Chelsea are now lead favourites for Diego Costa. They’ve opened provisional talks to nab the Spanish striker before the world cup. According to reports, their close relationship with Atletico looks set to steal them a march over all others. They’ll also let them keep the Belgian keeper Courtious (spelling?) as part of the deal.
Not sure what the answer to that should be… good? I think that works.
So, what have we today? Errr… transfers. Now, obviously it’s really hard to get anything out of the club when it comes to deals, but the noise I’ve heard is that Draxler is probably looking pretty unlikely for this transfer window. The young powerful German is apparently injured… add to that the issues you have settling a young player and also factor in that the Premiership is way more intense than the Bundesliga.
What to say about the Villa game eh? You know when your team has turned into a winning machine when you don’t have anything to complain about. I mean, jeez, I’m really struggling to have a bitch today…
Wenger rotated in our star men, he kept some of the fringe on and we played out a; in the main, comfortable game.
Olivier Giroud missed himself two relatively easy chances in the opening 7 minutes. He glanced a free header wide on 4 minutes, and then he failed to connect with a low cross on 7 minutes.
Happy Sunday morning everyone. I’m up early, penning the post on a mobile phone again. Pretty irritating I have to tell you. It’s like eating a roast dinner through a straw or holding a dinner party in a tent.
