I don’t get this – Bacary Sagna, one of the best right backs in the Premier League, a player who is just returning after suffering a leg break is the reason give by Arsene Wenger for not buying a left back! Sheet, let the guy come back and play where he is best, not stick him in an unfamiliar position and risk another injury….
Gibbs is reported to be back in full training on Monday, so he will need another week I would imagine and in the meantime, we risk playing another player out of position. Not just any old player though, our best right back!
Logic? I can’t see any either….
Talking of logic and back to the substitution that caused so much outrage last weekend, Wenger has backtracked over Chamberlains injury:
He is alright, it was just fatigue. His calf was not gone or anything like that, he just started to tire a little bit. It is normal for a guy who plays a game at that intensity. But health-wise he has no problem. He will be involved on Sunday.
Call me a cynic, our manager knew he wasn’t injured at the time and now he’s trying to justify his actions…
Hey ho, that’s all gone now, tomorrow is another day, another game and I hope we don’t see anything similar take place.
One player who could feature tomorrow is Ryo Miyaichi as Arsene Wenger has said that Ryo’s future will be decided this weekend.
No of course that doesn’t mean he’s being sold but it could mean a loan deal is on the cards so it could mean we all finally see this youngster play some part against Villa and then Wenger will make up his mind whether to play him over the next few months or let him gain experience elsewhere.
Finally, no doubt you all saw the stories going around again yesterday about Eden Hazard, if we are to believe L’équipe, the French sports newspaper – Eden Hazard will be leaving Lille within the next 48 hours, and the club he is going to sign for is….. Oh, us!
Yeah right I say 😉
Until he’s pictured in red and white on our official site, don’t believe it….
Have a good day all, FA Cup day tomorrow….
