So Abou Diaby reckons he knows how to beat Tottenham!
We all look forward to these big games because they are not only important to us, but to the club and the fans. It is more than a game.
The atmosphere around the game means we all want to win, so that makes it very exciting. That is why I think there are so many goals.It will be difficult because they play at their ground and have the crowd supporting them. But we just have to deal with that.
Of course we have a psychological edge because from the last game against them we took some lessons and we know them well. We know how to deal with them.
After reading this I wondered just how many NLD’s Diaby has featured in, if anyone knows, then great, do share it. He certainly wasn’t part of the side that won at the Emirates, he wasn’t even on the bench so why he really needs to chit chat away about how to win matches is anyone’s guess. Jeepers, he was part of a side which didn’t have enough guts and passion to beat Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup!!
Maybe he’s trying to say all the right things, but he and other players should keep their words in the dressing room and on the training pitch and when Sunday comes, put them all into action and play the best football they have all season!!
Wenger too needs a good game, asking a lot I know, but if he gets it right for once, we could win!!
We need to win to close the gap on them, but I’d settle for a draw right now if I’m honest.
Back to Abou, he really could be one on a long list of players whose career with Arsenal may come to an end this summer, he’s rated 50/50 for Sunday, which although is little surprise, it’s tiresome. He’s a waste of squad space imho.
Another who looks to be heading for the exit door is Irish Under 21 International Connor Henderson, a player who looked to be destined for a successful time with us, until injury hit him a couple of seasons ago.
Now though, he’s looking to leave when his contract expires in the summer:
I’ve not played at Arsenal’s first team this season, so it’s the right thing to leave when my contract expires in the summer. I’ve been with the club since my childhood but, like most of the Arsenal youngsters over the years, I need a move to get football.
At my age, I have to be playing regularly and I can’t get that at Arsenal, only U21 matches. I’ve been training with the first-team every day until the injury struck. Since I’ve come back, that’s only happened once.
It’s been a difficult few months but I’m optimistic about starting fresh at another club. Even Robbie Brady had to depart Manchester United for a new challenge and he’ll say he’s happy playing week in, week out at Hull.
My agent has already received interest from a few clubs.
‘I’ve been with the club since my childhood but, like most of the Arsenal youngsters over the years, I need a move to get football’
Just how sad is that statement?
I wonder just how many players we have let go, who would/could have had a future had they been given the right training and a proper chance….
Quick update on the injury front, Sagna will definitely miss out on the trip to the neighbours, as will Gibbs.
Have a good day all, the NLD will soon be here…….
