So I have had a couple of days to process the last week. I had no idea how to write after the Barcelona. So many comments I just could not organize them into a coherent structure, sadly I missed out.
However, I needed to write something about the United game. We didn’t play to well. But, and not trying to make excuses here, they did have 7 defenders for 45mins. Im sure that if we had 4 defenders who were fit it would make things ever so slightly easier let alone 7 at one time on the pitch.
Djourou’s injury is pretty hard to take. He has been fantastic this season. Becoming one of the backbones of the team in the absence of Vermaelen. He has helped Koscielney become steady and he filled me with confidence. Couple that with Szczeney’s dislocated fingure, that is two of our back 5 that most people I think have total confidence in.
Now as the eternal optimist here im looking for a silver lining. Utd are our closest rivals for the Premiership at the moment. As it stands, we are 3 points behind them with a game in hand. They are still in the Champions League, the FA Cup and the Premiership (they cant really get knocked out of that no matter how hard we try). We only have one competition left this season. I think that with all of our efforts concentrated on that and with Utd fighting on 3 different fronts, we should have a pretty good chance of keeping on track.
Now this is an Arsenal team that you could predict as well as Mr Fish did the weather in 1987. So who knows what will happen. Im going with, we will win. Because if you start to think negatively you don’t have anything to look forward to, and I don’t like that.
To you Wenger bashers now. I wrote this in a blog a while back, if you want him out, name me one replacement who will be as good as him AND who the players will respect as much. I’m pretty sure that if Mr Wenger leaves most of our talented youth will to. Now that saddens me. So enough with your crap and leave it till August and see where we are then.
On news that Jens might be back. In absolutely no way is this a bad thing. He is 2nd choice, will instill a sense of fear in players who aren’t performing that well and is an invincible. How can this be a bad thing? Also I’d like to see Gibbs pull that kind of shit again with Jens on watch. I don’t think so.
Anyway, that’s all. Thanks for reading. Comment if you can.
Carry on being gooners.
