Before the season started Mr Wenger OBE said this would be the closest Premiership title race for years.
Yet Abramovich’s chequebook was beginning to prove him wrong.
But ‘wow’ what a day we had yesterday. Man City the draw kings drew, The top 4 Spuds lost, The Bancrupts from Salford lost even with the scouse version of Jacques Cousteau in the team . I always thought we could catch that mob, ..But perhaps not Chelsea, they have been on another level this season, but even they are showing vulnerability.. No Essien no win.. No Essien until February so fingers crossed..
But those results won’t mean anything unless we can capitalize today against the Bindippers. And this is a good a time to play them as any. Torres not yet match fit, Gerrard needs an operation on his groin but Rafa cannot risk it, so he stays half fit and the rest of the squad are unhappy, Barbel wants out, Mascherano won’t sign an extension to his current deal. It isn’t looking good up there and I love it.
I have hated the Scousers since the days of the silly moustaches and the Afro’s (sorry Mr Sunderland) .. Since then they have got us chucked out of Europe and ruined the atmosphere in our grounds, they have helped take football out of the reach of the working classes which is ironic, so really they should be the most hated team in England.
We need a win today, it puts us on a football high, all those past weeks of losing to Sunderland etc will be put behind us and quashed in one weekend. It’s what being a supporter is all about good days and bad days .
But the main reason for winning and being excited is, if we win tomorrow and our game in hand . we would only be 3 points behind Chelsea, we also have a relatively easy run for a bit to keep the points rolling in so without putting too much pressure on, a win would be great and bring the season back to life. Not that it is as bad as some are talking.
I just hope that we are up for it because Liverpool will be, even if we play some of our non favourite players as long as they work hard we should get a result today.
AA is bound to score and a couple from the midfield will do very nicely today, I won’t even try to pick a team as I don’t know who we have left un- injured.
I am hoping our third choice left back can run rings around England’s No1 right back and he will need to keep his eye on Kuyt too.
Vermaelen should be able to handle Torres, it just depends on who Arsene picks to run the midfield.. Please let it be Song and not the Statman..
I am still going for a 3-1 win…
Have a good day ladies and gentlemen..
