A lot went on yesterday in the news about our fine club and our illustrious leader had a whole lot of things to say….
Nowt changes there then eh?
He talked about,
Why he believes the play-off for the CL place could be pointless.
Why he believes in the goal keepers he has to hand
Why the FA should help Portsmouth but not bend the transfer rules on the way
Tell you what I think, why talk about Portsmouth? It’s not our problem Arsene, unless of course you are thinking of nicking David James on the cheap – or any other player for that matter?
To be honest though, the poor chap just heads off to do a press interview, gets asked stupid irrelevant questions, answers them in a very diplomatic way and then everyone dissects what he replies…
I would rather know HONESTLY why he hasn’t tweaked our squad and made it into a real winning side..
But hey, we have all done that to death, haven’t we?
We have what we have until the summer so let’s get behind them (even Denilson) and roar our support from the rafters 🙂
Sunderland arrive at The Emirates today full of confidence, not from their last run of results but more so from the result they earned when we played them on their turf.
We were poor that day, we must have been, either that or we turned up believing the three points had been secured and we got complacent – I am going for the latter!
So today has to be very different, the players have to walk onto the green green grass of home thinking they are 1-0 down, fight for their lives from the off. To have a chance of winning this league we cannot afford to drop points, especially at home and especially against a side who hasn’t won in yonks..
In fact its twelve games since Sunderland have won a game a football, already Steve Bruce has said he hopes the board are patient with him and give him time to turn around results – he fears he will be axed if he doesn’t sort things out soon!
Well I hope Steve Bruce does turn things around and go on a long run of winning games, what I do hope though is that that begins next week and not tomorrow 😉
So who’s in and who’s out….
Sunderland have fitness doubts over Reid and Henderson, Cattermole and Meyler miss out due to being suspended.
Arsenal – We are without Gallas, Diaby, Van Persie, Eduardo, Djourou, Arshavin, Gibbs, and Merida –
Late fitness tests are in stall for both Almunia and Song!!
If Song and Alnunia are declared unfit, that’s TEN players we have out, yes I know Merida and Djourou wouldn’t definately be starters, but they would be on the bench wouldn’t they??
Did you read that long list of injured players Sky Sports?
Nah, of course you didn’t, you always like to make a big fuss over Manure (aka Sky FC) having Giggs out injured, or The Dippers missing Torres!!
Big day, big game, and I expect a big result in our favour; let’s show the boys from up north just how good we are on the slick surface at the Emirates and send Brucie home without any kind of bonus.
Let’s not let Steve Bruce go home with a similar kind of smug face that the last Manc went home with!!
Secure the three points and get us right back in this title race – we have to stay in it to win it!

That’s it, no gossip, no round up, just utter garbage from me 😉
