Don’t know about anyone else, but it seems along long time since we played our last game of football, since Cesc slotted home his penalty to secure us three points against Sunderland.
Thankfully today the boys are back in action and we should all be able to see it on a proper screen rather than a stream somewhere. Some are lucky to be heading up to Stoke, but me, I will be sat in front of the television, shouting obscenities at the screen and praying for a win.
Prior to that though and just for a change, I’m going to watch the lunchtime battle between Wayne Bridge and John Terry – oops I mean Chelsea against Manchester City!
I hate City, probably as much as I do Chelsea but that has only come about since Lardy and Toure went there for money. I used to respect them a little, I would even go as far as to say I liked them as a team, but now they have become just a Mr Rich club that pays rubbish players silly money! Lardy is living proof of that isn’t he and as for Toure, he has been one of their worst signings. Hey Ho though, look on the bright side, we pocketed £40M and got rid of a couple of trouble makers.
Today though, I shall be cheering on the team from Manchester, I hope they thrash Chelsea, I hope Wayne Bridge lumps Terry in the dying seconds of the game, I really do.
Everyone seems to have an opinion on the Bridge/England situation and many think he is cutting off his nose to spit his face. I am surprised really as in the ‘ordinary world’ most men I know would have been round to Terrys house a long time ago and made it clear how he felt. To expect the two to ever play in the same team let alone share a dressing room is asking far too much.
In my mere humble opinion, Terry should be the one not going to South Africa in the summer, not Wayne Bridge; he has done nothing wrong during all of this!
Maybe fate will take over and Terry will pick up an injury between now and then and Bridge will play in the end.
If City can do us a favour and we can go to Stoke and get three points then that will cut the gap down to just one game. Just one game they need to slip up in and we are in with a REAL shout. With the fixtures they have, I can see them dropping more than three points!
So on to us, The Mighty Arsenal, the so called Mighty Arsene Wenger – both have to be on their best form tonight.
We have no Diaby, Arshavin or Gallas! That’s a big three to miss!
Arsene needs to get it right from the start, put out the strongest side we have available, not his favourites, his best eleven. Then he needs the next best on the subs bench and then use them at the right time. That means, impact subs, not Denilson on for the last three minutes. If the game needs changing, bring on the right players to make that change happen!
Do that Arsene and we will win – win for only the second time in 28 years!!! Unbelievable statistics really and hard to believe – a bit like Denilsons 😉
Forget Delap, forget the long throw ins, forget what Stoke think they do well – mark Fuller out the game and we win, get Big Sol to take out every cross and throw in and we will be fine – play the football we know we can play and we will come away with the points, all three of them!!
Oh, and if Denilson is around, he can keep hold of the Stoke towel !!!!
This is our chance, I feel it’s our final chance to close the gap –
fuck sorry, muck up today, and that’s it, we may as well sit back and accept 3rd place!
I am going for a 2-1 or 3-2 away win. I also have a feeling we will see something like this later….
Now then, that really would make my day… Just for you JonJon..
Have a good one all…
