A ‘light’ post this morning, well the start of it…..
Just what is Santi up to and why is David Beckham laughing so much?
Wouldn’t you love to know?
Whatever his problem, it didn’t go away!
And nor will the rest of the problems go away by the sound of it.
According to reports, we are going to have one last try at signing David Villa and that’s it. Well I wouldn’t bother personally, not if it’s true that Manchester City now want him to replace Balotelli. We can’t compete with them for wages and at his age, I suspect Villa wants a bumper salary.
Oh well, the dream was nice while it lasted!
If Walcott had left, everybody would have said, ‘You lost a top striker.’
“Giroud is getting there, I believe. He has started 11 Premier League games and scored eight goals. In all competitions he has 14 goals. Overall, he is slowly getting there.
“If you look at the Africa Cup of Nations, the best striker is Gervinho and after [him] we have one or two good young players who will get a chance.
Then Podolski! I forgot Podolski, who we bought to play as a central striker, so we have quality strikers.
Walcott has been with us a long time now and after a handful of games playing centrally, Wenger suggests he’s considered to be a top striker. He says he signed Podolski to play to play as a striker too, so why has he been sticking him out wide on the left and watch his struggle?
Gervinho, well it will take me and suspect most fans more than a goal or two at the ACON’s to convince he is a quality striker.
Anyway, let’s hope the three we do have right now find the back of the net tonight, we need a win, for no other reason than we all want to see an Arsenal side win. Top four, well what will be will be and if we don’t get there in May, then blame Kroenke and his cronies below him, including Wenger.
Thomas Vermaelen is fit for selection tonight so he should slot straight back into the side, Coquelin, Arteta and Fabianski remain on the sidelines although the latter is ready for a couple of matches for the reserves now..
Whisper it, but Diaby is still fit too……
Wenger needs to get his team focused for tonight, Liverpool will still be seething from their FA Cup exit and of course from earlier in the season when we beat them at Anfield.
I’ll end on some positive news, the club have announced that they won’t be increasing tickets prices next season.
I’m surprised they didn’t keep that bit of news up their sleeve, or maybe it’s an attempt to appease fans for no transfers this month…
If so, it won’t work!
Have a good day all….
