Five minutes to go until half-time and a few fans were out of their seat and off up the steps to the food hall.
But I guess people need to eat, although I never understand why Arsenal fans would pay the prices the club charge. In fact, I wouldn’t give a penny to the club for food, not when they charge so much for tickets, why feed the hand that robs us each season?
It’s not like we see much return during a transfer window is it? Pffff
Talking of transfer windows, did you spot him?
Yes of course you did, the cameras zoomed in on him so how could you miss Loic Remy watching us.
Of course that doesn’t mean he’s definitely signing for us but I reckon it’s a huge hint that he might and I for one would be pretty pleased. He’d be the ideal replacement for Bendtner.
Anyway, he sat and watched our boys have a casual and calm Sunday afternoon training session and secure another three points at home….
Arsene Wenger was of course asked about Remy after the game:
Honestly I have just been informed that Loic Remy was here, I didn’t know. So don’t see any sign of us signing Loic Remy in that. I hope he has paid for his ticket!
No [I didn't invite him], that’s why I tell you I have not invited him.
Oh Arsene, you do fib…..
I can understand Arsene Wenger fielding a strong side, I can also understand him resting Aaron Ramsey as we need him fit for the FA Cup final. I’d actually rest him again next weekend even though we lack something when he doesn’t play, it’s not worth the risk. We have Kallstrom and now Diaby is back too, so let them play.
3rd was still up for grabs yesterday which was no doubt the reason for the strong starting eleven but sadly Norwich couldn’t sneak a goal against Chelsea so 4th it is for us and the league title is now between Liverpool and Manchester City which leaves Jose and his little horse, trophy-less.
How we need that FA Cup eh!!
Anyway, nice to see us scoring from a corner, a darn good one it was too and nicely headed home by the big French striker.
Must have been the haircut that did it….
Micah Richards, Loic Remy and Alex McCarthy are all linked to us today in one paper or another….
That’s it for another day, it’s Bank Holiday here in England and it’s going to be a warm one….
