What absolute poppy cock! How can people say he ‘escaped’? We all know the Football Association would have thrown the book at Gallas if they could don’t we? Reality is they had nothing to throw the book at him about, that isn’t escaping, that is just reality. There were no grounds for the FA to act retrospectively and ‘Old Wiley’ got it right! Well, some of it 😉
After listening to comments from a Bolton player saying the tackle was disgusting, and Coyle suggesting that the Willy’s tackle was more of an assault than anything else, I say, get real Bolton, that tackle was nothing compared to what our boys have been on the receiving end of for many seasons now, and especially from you!
The only difference is that our players end up being out of the game for weeks, your lad Davies will probably be back at the weekend!
As for the goal that followed, tough! Rules are rules, it happened to us a couple of games ago when Denilson was down, did you hear our boss whinging? No, he just said those are the rules and suggested that someone commit a handball, that’s how to stop the game, not by getting a sympathy vote!
Bolton, you think you are hard nuts, but you just bad losers who can’t take what you dish out week in, week out!!
Talking of ‘proper injuries’, what sad news about Kieran Gibbs, just as he had his chance, proved himself to be a top left back, possibly better than Clichy is playing right now and the lad needs an operation which will keep him out for the rest of the season!
“That is sad news because I rate him highly,” Wenger told TV Online. “I had hoped that the first surgery would be successful.
Dreadful and just so typical of the way our luck has gone this season with injuries.
Some good news, Giles Sunu a big lump of a centre forward with a nose for goal is in talks about a new contract, his expires in the summer and let’s hope he decides to stay.
Cescy boy has spoken to his fellow Spanish midfielder who I have promised not to mention, he says“I have spoken to him about his future, because he will be out of contract soon. I didn’t persuade him to sign or not sign, I just told him my feelings, but of course whatever he decides will be down to him. That’s for him to say.”
Not much other gossip around other than Diaby is out for the Stoke game at the weekend, and the away match at Aston Villa. Bacary Sagna will also be out for the weekend.
I wonder who will play at right back. Do I now admit I miss Eboue 😉
Will Big Sol make his debut? Will it be the oldest defensive pairing in the FA Cup on show?
If they do, will they make history?
Who knows, but surely Gallas and Vermaelen need a break? We have Aston Villa just a few days later…
Me, I say always play the strongest and win the game, winning breeds winning and can you see either Gallas or Vermaelan asking to be rested – No, neither can I.
Stoke will be a very tough nut to crack, and we need to win!
But take yourselves back to Avenell’s post about sacrificing the FA Cup – does it make you think differently now we are sat top of the league?
Not me, I want to win it!
Have a good day all, isn’t Friday a signing day 😉
