So after an extravaganza of midweek football (shouldn’t we have more midweek EPL), I have a message for all Man U fans out there- hahahahahahahahahahha!
Anyway, I have this strange sorta thing. For Arsenal to win a match gives me just as much joy as watching Tottenham lose. Therefore, I felt much pain upon seeing Tottenham come back and win against Fulham. If they had lost or even drawn, it would have been an almost perfect midweek, seeing as it was bloody obvious that Shity and Chelsea would win.
So, onto things Goonerer….
That was another magic performance last night, and it was great to know that we have reliable players ready to fill in when needed. Its always been a bit of a worm with me, seeing City and Chelsea’s humongously gigantic squads and seeing our amazing XI with little or no decent back-up.
Last night, with Monreal and Jenkinson filling in at full-back and big, bad Bendtner jump in up front.
I must say, when I checked the teams I was hoping that we weren’t taking Hull City Tigers for granted. Bendtner, however, allayed my fears almost immediately by heading a fantastic Jenks cross in inside two minutes.
At the start of the second half, Özil-inho finished off a lovely passing move involving Monreal and Ramsey. And from then on it was plain sailing. No world-class save from the world-class keeper. No last-ditch tackle form Koscielny needed.
I would like to draw our attention to our striking conundrum, if it is not already on it. I sincerely, sincerely hope the Boss is not planning on keeping Bendtner and Yaya Sanogo as back-up for Giroud for the rest of the season. Even the most dunder-headed of Arsenal fans will realise that we need a striker. Who that may be, I refuse to speculate. Speculating is not my best pastime, so I’ll be more than happy to round them off for you; Benzema, Falcao, Alvaro Morata, Cavani, Hernandez and Pato have all been mentioned.
Anyway, a lot of people have been employing mind games recently in order to slip up the Arsenal. I will have them know that the Arsenal team has tremendous mental strength and we are not as gullible/un-concentrating as we were a few seasons ago. I really believe we can hold on for this season, but for that to happen we need to sign in January. A solid back-up striker who can come on at 75 minutes to do a job and a decent CB wouldn’t go amiss.
Who am I kidding, this is Wenger we’re talking about…or has he changed his habits?
Only God knows…
