It’s game on in the Premiership now, with all those International games over. It was a decent International break this time round – a break that was very much needed – our form going into the Internationals wasn’t great and of course, we had a spate of injuries. Now that the Premiership is back, we’ve got 9 games to win the league… despite our draw against WBA, it’s not over yet – we need to start by winning against Blackburn at home on Saturday and see where that takes us!
The good news is – I believe at the time of writing – that we will be able to select Cesc Fabregas, Alex Song and Theo Walcott for the game… it’s been a while since we’ve seen those three players, that’s for sure… and just to scare you… we also have Abou Diaby back… * gulp * but with Jack having played two Internationals and looking tired, he may slot back into the team…
And the Dutch coach says Robin is fine after his injury scare:
“Robin got a knee to his thigh – with luck he could play for Arsenal this weekend.”
With luck? I don’t know what that means… I mean, how painful is a bruised thigh be?
So, a little earlier than usual… but we could field this team…
Almunia, Sagna, Squillaci, Koscielny, Clichy, Wilshere, Song, Walcott, Cesc, Nasri and Van Persie…
Did I just hear someone say TheoVanNasregas?
It could well happen, the golden four players who seem to have a scoring and winning mentality (in the league anyway!)…!!
There will be lots more team news tomorrow for sure, but for now, I just want to talk about the David Rocastle tribute this weekend. The Arsenal legend passed away 10 years ago today and in memory of the great man, @SheWore, who runs the She Wore A Yellow Ribbon blog, is part of a group of people organising an evening at the Rocket, this Saturday.
And to quote:
The night will also have some of Rocky’s family in attendance along with ex-players, famous Arsenal fans, an auction of Arsenal memorabilia and much more to be announced. Tickets are priced at a minimum donation of £10 and all profits will be going to Great Ormond Street Hospital at the request of Rocky’s family.
The event is this Saturday at the Rocket (April 2nd), from 8pm – 10pm… There will be an auction, and so far it includes a signed shirt of Cesc Fabregas as well as several other amazing items!
Well, that’s a wrap for today, but I expect to hear a little from Arsene later on, and will give you my thoughts this time tomorrow!!
