I've driven up the M1 / M6 and have been listening to Arseblog’s Arsecast on CD. Recommend it for some light hearting and semi serious Arsenal listening…
The boss is being cagey on the goalkeeping situation but has made a decision – we will all find out tomorrow.
“Come to the game tomorrow and you will see.”
Arsene talks further about not being under pressure and how we were under more pressure at the beginning of the season as we were written off. (Realistically, we are majorly under pressure – we haven’t won the league since 2004!)
“I’m not really anxious,” Arsene said at the pre-match press conference on Friday. “We were under real pressure at the start of the season, much worse than we are now, because everybody said we were absolutely nobody.“The players stood up and we have absolutely nothing to lose; everybody has written this team off at the start and now we are in a good position, so why should we suddenly become nervous?”
Well, we have Van Persie and Rosicky to come back into the squad and hopefully they will both add an extra pizazz for the end of the season – we have to really examine the realiability of both RVP and Rosicky in the summer – is it possible to have two players who only play 20 games per season is what is now a 60 game season? Arsene concentrates on the positives of RVP’s return…
“It could be a positive when he comes back,” said the Frenchman. “It could give us the kind of push that is needed and we hope that happens soon. However I must say as well I would like Diaby back and I would like Djourou back, because with Kolo out we are short of centre backs. And I would like Rosicky back too because, in games like Wednesday night, he would have been important.”
Well, it’s getting late, and I need to be fresh for tomorow. 10am start – tour of St. Andrews, lunch at 11am in the VIP corporate box – I’m a lucky man this weekend – and then 90 minutes of entertaining football and a 4-0 win for the Gooners!
Night all, here’s for a good game and 3 points tomorrow.]]>
