I know, a naughty heading, but Chelsea and England captain has over played, (well over played away from home) and now he has lost the England armband.
I personally think that it is the right decision, but to then give it to Rio Ferdinand, a player who is currently banned for what could be described as an assault on a football pitch and a drug testing dodger, is a bizarre choice in my humble opinion..
If that is the best England can do then how sad!!
I really hope all this Terry stuff causes him problems mentally, by that I mean I hope his concentration and focus on football suffers and he has a dreadful run of form – I also hope the rest of his team follow suit. Funny enough, I hope that begins tomorrow!!
Anyway, back to Arsenal and back to the captain’s role – I thought it was a strange comment for him to make and one that the likes of Tony Adams and Patrick Vieira would strongly disagree with I think!
They lead by example, when the chips were down they didn’t hide or let their heads drop did they? No, they stepped up and fought that bit harder and the rest of the team followed…
Maybe he is just trying to take the pressure off of Cesc a bit, letting him know he doesn’t expect him to suddenly turn into a big mouth in a game. I understand that once the players are on the pitch it’s down to them to perform as individuals but sometimes a bit of a gee up can pick any player up.
I recall when I played, even in the women’s game a captain with a big heart and mouth can help you out when going through a tough moment or two – and my word, our captain had a big mouth!!
But tactically, any change should come from Arsene, or his silent side kick who at times reminds me of the dog on the Churchill car insurance advert – nods a lot and just says yes and no!!
NewsNow have a few titbits about who we are looking at, who we are hoping to buy, but why bother? We don’t seem to buy anyone when we can so I say forget the rumours from now on, well, at least until the day the next transfer window opens!!
Talking of which, Arsene did try and sign a player, sadly though he didn’t realise the window opened on the 1st January. He thought it opened on the 31st and spent all day trying to get his player. Sadly it didn’t work out though and we didn’t get him – we will never know I guess who ‘that player’ was as the boss says he won’t tell us. Rumours are though it was either Remy or Sorensen..
If it is the latter, that has to be good news for us, hasn’t it?
Other little bits from this mornings news, young defender Savic will have to wait until the summer for any decision about joing us and Big Sol wants to go to South Africa – no, not to see the Big Four, but to play for England in the World Cup.
Why not I say, if he shows he is fit enough, what a ‘massive’ player for England to have in their dressing room 😉
Til tomorrow all – have a nice day
