Do the thanks go to Southampton for beating Everton 2-0?
Or do we thank Everton for scoring two really good headed goals?
Who cares eh!
Yesterday’s result really did us a huge favour in our quest to get that trophy winning 4th spot. With two home fixtures left from the remaining three of this season, surely we won’t blow it now.
How good was Nathaniel Clyne?
Seriously, he was very very good in my opinion and outshone his counterpart Seamus Coleman…
If Bacary Sagna does leave, maybe Arsene Wenger should think again about Calum Chambers and go get Clyne.
How do Southampton do it though, they have so many players who have and still are coming through their academy yet we see so few, in fact none of late. We do of course have many younger players running their little legs off in the reserves etc, but by the time they get they are old enough to get a front door key, they seem to be offloaded.
Hopefully the arrival of Andries Jonker in the summer will give the system a good shake up and we start to see one or two start to break through over the next few seasons.
Who is fit for tomorrow:
Everybody who was available at Hull last week will be available for Newcastle. Vermaelen could be back so everybody should be there but not Gibbs, not Diaby yet. Of course Wilshere and Walcott are still out as well.
Jack is progressing well. He is still on course to be with the team in the last couple of games.
I would imagine that Jacks return will be dictated by how the last three fixtures go, I doubt he’ll start if the race for the 4th spot goes to the final match of the season.
Mind you, I don’t think it will. If we can win tomorrow, I think it’ll be enough…….
The Mirror: Arsenal have joined the £20million race to sign Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck.
Everton are ready to tie up Seamus Coleman on a bumper new deal – as Arsenal prepare to make their move for him.
The Metro: Arsenal are planning a move for Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy, 27 years old.
That’s it for another day, I’ll be cheering on Chelsea later…..
