I am to be honest as it’s not too often anyone dishes out praise to Arsenal, let alone the manager and player for September award to two of our men. I’m quite surprised that Brenda Rogers and his striker Sturridge didn’t scoop both awards as the media/press can’t stop raving about how well they have done. Even more so since Suarez has returned.
What Arsene Wenger has achieved this month was far from expected from those same media/press people, in fact before the season kicked off, we were heavily tipped to finish outside the top four for the first time since the Frenchman arrived at Arsenal but now, well people are starting to see things quite different.
Well done to both I say and long may their and all of our players performances continue to shine. For Arsene Wenger, it’s the 13th time he has picked up this same award but if things carry on as they are, I’m sure he’ll soon increase that number.
Aaron Ramsey is clearly delighted to be voted the Premier League Player of the Season for the first time in his career, he tweeted:
Very happy to be named @premierleague Player of the Month for September. Hoping for an even better October!
Amen to that Aaron.
October started with a draw away at West Brom, a result which most of us believe wasn’t as bad as it sounds, I know I don’t.
This will be followed by a home league game against Norwich, a tasty home Champions League fixture against a very strong Borussia Dortmund side, an away trip to Crystal Palace and then another home game. This one in the Capital One Cup against Jose Mourinho and his Chelsea side.
All four of those fixtures will be tough, especially the three home ones but then I thought Napoli would cause us many more problems than they did so there’s no reason we should fear any of those oppositions. Respect yes, fear, no way!
And of course, we have ‘first team’ players returning after this current break.
So all is looking rosy in the Arsenal camp, let’s just get this break over without suffering further injuries.
Just in case you have missed the leak of what is to believed to be the new kit from Puma, here it is.
Linford Christie tweeted the above photograph but he soon removed it from his account.
The Daily Mail reckon Arsene Wenger fears Bacary Sagna is running down his contract and will leave for free in the summer in order to get one last bumper deal. The Sun go as far as to suggest he has rejected the offer on a new one year deal with us. Can’t see that being true as surely any new deal offered would be for more than just one year.
Finally, if Arsene Wenger plans to go after Michu in January or next summer, he’ll have to part with £30 million. A fair price I’d say in today’s market…
That’s it for another day, have a good one….
