Wanna be together? Vermaelen confirms we already are…..

Not much about in the news again, but two strikers were hot topic yesterday and two managers had something to say.

One is Marouane Chamakh who we all have heard about but not seen much of. (I’m bored with him already)

Sunderland gaffer Steve Bruce admitted that he studied the player in the summer and was desperate to sign him. Having seen the way ex Scum Bag Darren Bent and Kenwyne Jones took their chances I am not surprised to hear he wanted another striker. He simply say’s he wasn’t up for sale.

I’ve always liked both Bent and Jones and the latter I wanted us to sign – after Saturday though, I’m definitely having a re-think about that!

Good old Rafa wants him and I  hope he gets him, Torres would definitely have to step his game up then, he’d be quaking in his boots!!

I jest of course. 🙂

Back to Brucie and Chamakh, in his day Bruce was a fantastic player, and I actually think he is one of the better players turned managers of this current day, certainly better than Keane!
Bruce was a rottweiler in defence and because of that I think he could have a good eye for a striker. He says that should Chamakh join us in the summer he will be a massive hit.

Who knows, we don’t even know for sure if the deal is done. One thing I do know though, I’ll be watching or recording the CL so I can see just how good or bad he really is 🙂

The other manager who had something to say about a striker was our very own Arsene Wenger. He has backed Theo Walcott to be part of the England squad that travels to South Africa this summer. He reckons he is starting to improve greatly and is very much on the right track – hope JonJon doesn’t see that.

Personally I think Arsene is right, he has got better, slowly yes, but better and as we have all said time and time again, if he could add a good cross to his game and a whole lot more control he would be worth a chunk of the money we paid for him and what he is being paid every week. I think I read somewhere the other day that Mark Lawrenson said he would pick Theo before Lennon or Wright-Phillips – I may have dreamt that though as I can’t believe Lawrenson would say one good thing about us!!

Carlos Vela is another player with great potential, a bit like Theo though, he is yet to truly deliver. Also like Theo he can’t see to stay free from injury and he is another player desperate to get to South Africa. Right now he has a groin injury, I just wish he could get fit and get his chance in the first team. I don’t care if that is 15/20 minutes from the bench either.

Anyway, we have eleven games to go, I can’t believe we are so close to the end of the season, it seems like only yesterday I was getting all excited yet apprehensive ahead of our opening fixture away to Everton – wouldn’t it be something if we could go on and get a few results similar to how that game went?

One thing I do know despite all the ‘behind the paps’ rumours, this team isn’t about to crumble or buckle under a bit of pressure, like ave said yesterday, Cesc celebrated his goal which said to all of us that he isn’t ready just yet to depart for sunny shores, Eboue has suddenly grown, Nasri had a much better game as did Almunia.

So after a week having to listen and read the reviews about our Porto debacle, the Fabianski moment, the Sol pass back, this team is very together, this team wants this title at the end of the season.

Thomas Vermaelen summed it all up quite simply in an interview…

‘You lose with 11 or you win with 11. That is how it is with us’!!

Thomas – if only we had a few more like you in our squad…..

Have a nice day you all

  3. rico says:

  4. morning rico
    still in the frezzer
    gd round up
    on vela i nb a mexica report piping up in the press conference the otherday i cant nb what wenger said tho

  5. rico says:

    Morning RSD, Im outside in the snow 😉

    AW said that he was on the bench but with a slight groin injury so he did’t risk him.

    If he has an injury I don’t understand why he was even on the bench – AW does that often, why even think about taking such a risk..

  6. it for his stats 😉

  7. is there snow over in blighty

  8. rico says:

    We have snow, sleet, rain, its dark cold and miserable 😦

  9. Erick says:

    Mornin all nice post Rico i dont see Theo making the world cup squad Lennon and Wright have been way much consistent abt Vela its a wait and see scenario because he has not had playing time consisently

  10. The Crab says:

    I think we’re gonna have a convincing end to the season. Would be nice to see RVP get a few games too…

  11. rico says:

    Morning Crab,

    He is scheduled back for Aril, just in time for the last 3/4 games in the PL and the CL Final …

  12. afternoon erick
    we have now 4 feet of snow
    the door froze shut the other night lol
    my first winter hear and coldest since records began
    Capello does like to pick them when there in form and lennons out so

  13. rico says:

    Morning Erick, I can’t see Theo making it to be honest unless SWP and Lennon get injured.

    Vela will make it though as long as he stays fit..

  14. Erick says:

    Crab we need to win all our remaining games especially the Stoke game because Chelsea will be playing Manciteh and anything can happen, I dont see Van persie making any impact probably next season

  15. you reckon rico re RVP

  16. dont think he’ll be ready to till may

  17. rico says:

    I do, honest, I think he will be back training in April and will score the winning goal in the CL Final…

    Wake up rico, wake up …..

  18. Erick says:

    RSD you got it right mid day already 🙂 and am thinking lunch

  19. rico says:

    Erick, lunch, im just eating my bowl of cornflakes 😉

  20. you’ll see it when you believe it rico

    stoke also play city in the week so let hope for extra time and then city to win

  21. Erick says:

    Manure play the hammers on Tuesday hoping for a draw the league is far from over we just need to win win win win win win win Come on Arsenal

  22. Erick says:

    Blame it on the time zone Rico 🙂 🙂

  23. rico says:

    West Ham have started to pick up a bit, I don’t think they will roll over for the mancs..

    I worry about the away game at the scummers, we will get revenge against citeh at home..

  24. rico says:

    And me having a late breakfast…

    Real Madrid are still hoping to snatch AW from us then

    And Manu Petit suggests if we dont start winning things then AW could be tempted!!

    What a load of clap trap, If AW wants to start winning he knows just what he needs to do doesn’t he…

  25. Erick says:

    Its possible RSD very possible but we need to be lucky and improve on our performance

  26. Erick says:

    The pressure is on 4 Mancini and a win over Chelsea is just what he needs to calm things , Westham still trying to avoid relegation so its on 4 us

  27. he has been out done mancini hasn’t he moyes even did him if real want aw they can have him
    would we get compensation if he’s out of contract
    they already have a grounds keeper so least he’ll have some the staff there notw says they wanted clichy for 16mil too

  28. not out of contarct sorry

  29. Erick says:

    Realmadrid always want someone thats why they are always a flop they do not concentrate on what they have. RSD have you seen Chamakah in action?

  30. chamkakakak no
    but i will this week

  31. rico says:

    I am looking forward to watching Chamakh in action, when i first heard he wanted to join us i was quite happy, but a lot of that stems from desperation since RVP got injured.

    Maybe then some doubters will change their mind, or those like me will join the doubtr about him..

  32. Erick says:

    I also want to check him out am not sure it will be broadcasted are they playing tomorrow?

  33. rico says:

    As for RM and AW, he has already turned them down because of their transfer principles – I can’t see him changing his mind now.

    If he left and went to a rich club and starts spending mega amounts he would look a bit silly imho

  34. Erick says:

    Going against his principles Rico he woud sure look damn

  35. Erick says:

    Going against his principles Rico he woud sure look stupid

  36. but he did meet with them and have a good old chin wage

  37. rico says:

    He would Erick,

    😆 chin wage

  38. just watch chamakakakaka youtube
    so 3 mins this season he looks amazing lol

  39. rico says:

    Anyone see any of that debacle at Wigan yesterday, Defoe should have had a straight red for a two footed tackle before he scored a clear offside goal..

    Huddlestone should have also ben sent off!!

  40. haven’t seen it but trig gave me the lo down
    for him to take a pen a few minute later seems a bit harsh

  41. rico says:

    I didn’t see a penalty, just the ‘talking points’ on sky sports, didn’t look too good, nor did the pitch, thank goodness we aren’t going to play on it…

  42. rico says:

    Porto won at the weekend, 5-1 against Braga…

    Who the heck are Braga 😉

  43. will be even worse when we go there hope they relay it after the rugger season is over

  44. there top of they where 2nd in league arnt they

  45. sorry i meant where 2nd behind benfica

  46. lol that sounds how i talk normally

  47. sorry forgot it league they have different season dont they

  48. rico says:

    Wigan are having a new surface laid in March, Porto are 3rd or 4th i think…not sure though

  49. rico says:

    laptop needs an hour off…

    Catch up in a while

  50. shit i have to go rico
    swedish school joy
    have a gd day :-*

  51. K-TR7 says:

    Morning bloggers,theo and eboue for all their faults bring the much touted ‘plan B’ to the table.theo may still lack the final decision but he scares defenders stiff which means he is marked more creating room for our mfs.eboue as i said is our most direct player and is very useful.AW has said shava and diaby are coming back(fingers crossed)for stoke.realm looked spectacular last night against villareal especially cr9 who scored a freekick and had like 3 assists.

  52. rico says:

    Morning KTR7

    Didn’t see the Real Madrid game – did Bobby P play in taht defeat 😦

    Good news about Diaby and AA, especially as that should keep Denilson on the bench 🙂

  53. rico says:

    Here’s a question..

    Having seen Craig Gordon make many a good save at the weekend, who thinks we would be a better side with him in goal for us??

  54. rico says:

    Giles Sunu has signed a new deal….

  55. Pelirocco says:

    Lat time I checked it was Darren Bent that played for Sunderland!

    Think Marcus Bent is on the verge of retirement

  56. rico says:

    Hi Pelirocco, thanks for your comment, I must have been having ‘a senior moment’ yesterday 😉

  57. rico says:

    Maybe Bent played like a man heading for retirement, that’s what threw me 😉

  58. K-TR7 says:

    Bobby played really well considering his age.they however still have defensive issues.R80 played well too for milan assisting twice.nasri made me smile on saturday,has he turned a corner?

  59. Afobe signs yey another 17 year old
    but hes english

  60. rico says:
