It’s unbelievable Diaby is in the squad to play Fulham today, he isn’t back, he hasn’t been away.
The poor lad, he has had enough injuries to last a whole career and hopefully we can see him have a month or two injury free before Cesc gets back, to really see what sort of player he is.
I must confess I don’t know what to make of him, some days like against Roma and Man U he looks a world beater. Then some days we wish Song was playing he is that bad. (for you London). We are again comparing Diaby to PV4 again, there are some similarities but Patrick was more direct and a better DM when needed.
Onto today, Arsenal in 5th place in the Premiership take on Fulham in 8th.. That doesn’t sound right does it? Fulham are over achieving under the managment skills of Roy Hodgson and are not under any pressure of relegation. Hopefully they wont be playing like a team whose life depends on it like some of the lower teams and we can take advantage of that.
We need to keep the pressure on Villa they are only 6 points ahead and if we get 3 this afternoon it is going to be sqeaky bum time for them and they have never had this pressure before and hopefully there team spirit will be lowered by there midweek defeat in the UEFA cup.
The Spuds and Villa fielding weakened teams in the week has lowered the value of that cup even more now and we should be determined to get a Champions League place and not lower ourselves by stooping so low as to drop into it.
I think the team will be.
Arshavin..Diaby.. Denilson.. Nasri.
Prediction 3-1 to the Rip Roaring Reds..
