It's been a good weekend results wise as we managed to finally get three points on the board. We temporarily surfaced at 3rd position before Hull won again to push us down to fourth. Stoke also won today, meaning Sp*rs are rock bottom 3 points adrift of Newcastle who have a game in hand... (they play Manchester City tomorrow at St. James)... So by this time tomorrow, Sp*rs could be five points adrift at the bottom of the league... Jol must be laughing...
The question is... is there a serious chance they may be relegated this season?
Back to all things Arsenal and the injuries are mounting up. The International break saw us lose the services of William Gallas, Bacary Sagna and Niklas Bendtner and the game against Everton has seen us lose Kolo Toure to a shoulder injury and Samir Nasri to a thigh strain. With Rosicky and Eduardo still out, that's about 7 of our first team squad out.
Djourou should return for the next game and we've just see the first of Silvestre and Diaby. It looks like the squad is taking turns in the treatment room. I've heard Rosicky has bought shares in ArsenalPhysio.Com.
Now time to look at a certain player called Adebayor. His form this season has been terrifyingly bad and he genuinely seems to have lost his focus. I've personally not been a fan of his performances this season. Even in the game yesterday, I lost count of the number of offsides and bad touches this boy had. I'm not a player hater (except for Eboue... but not this season), but Adebayor's lack of ability this season has got me worried. If he was playing like he was last season, where would be sitting in the league now?
How many missed chances can one player have?
Well, it's time to use the blog's new feature... the poll. Here's a simple question, what do you guys think? Should Bendtner get his chance and should Ade be benched? Honestly, let me know, it's an anonymous poll...!
I'll keep it short this Sunday, back tomorrow...]]>
