With the success of a fully fit Robin Van Persie and Tomas Rosicky in mind, it would be excellent if we could enjoy a treble this season…
That is, to witness a fully fit Abou Diaby firing on all cylinders and contributing to the team effort in attaining 3rd spot.
Hopefully both Abou and Francis Coquelin will soon be added to the 1st team mix, with a view to being considered by Arsene Wenger.
Arsenal have eight games to get through before the end on the season, that’s twenty-four points up for grabs!
Every single one of those fixtures will be ultra competitive as the season reaches it make or breaking point.
A fresh pair of legs, maybe even 2 or 3 pairs, could swing evenly fought games our way during the run-in and they could be the difference between finishing 5th, 4th or 3rd…
Arsene Wenger has spent the last few days, keeping a very low profile. his players have not been indulging in their usual habit of Tweeting, save for supporting comments for Fabrice Muamba.
To me, it shows a welcome level of focus on the job at hand and something I hope all the staff keep up until the final game on May 13th.
I want to see my club, my team, my players, doing their talking on the pitch.
I want my to hear my manager staying away from controversial comments and remaining humble before games.
Low profile is the watchword.
No big talk before games, no boasting, just stay calm!!
Transfer tittle-tattle continues to rumble on, with no comment being Arsene’s policy. He is allowing the speculation to flow, unchecked because I suspect that the majority of his targets, are not those that have been routinely touted in the Press/Media.
Arsene has his eyes on reinforcements, but he most certainly won’t alert Mancini and whoever is in charge at Chelsea this coming summer, so that neither of the Petro-Dollar clubs can gazump him in the final straight.
We shall get a myriad of stories and rumours, linking us to zillion different players over the next 5 months and most of those stories will have their origin in the imagination of some lazy journalist or an agent. Each and every one of them, intended to engineer the sales of newspapers, boost internet hits on some scabby website or increase interest in some Tom, Dick, Mario or Harry, footballer.
It’s the same every year and all it does is sow discourse, disappointment and discontent among the Gunners faithful.
We really should be wise to what is coming guys and gals.
Sure discuss rumours, speculate about transfers, suggest line-ups, systems and whatever else rocks your boat, but don’t take all the media crap too seriously, and don’t be too disappointed if 95% of the links to Arsenal, prove to be red herrings.
The speculation, the misinformation, the lies, damned lies and Press transfer gossip, but let’s not forget we already have a great squad of players, we just need them to stay fit more often….
It’s all part of the rumour game and The Daily Mail have another this morning, they suggest that Wenger is definitely after M’Vila but he’s not to replace Alex Song as the latter is set to be offered a bumper pay-rise in a new contract.
