A point gained at the weekend, that’s my take on it, don’t buy into the negativity! Of course with the next three games coming up it would have been nice to chalk a win, but at the end of the day we’d have also taken being further ahead at the start of the weekend. I still stand by my point on the Chel$ki and Cit£h games, if we take draws in both it keeps us ahead of both, losing either plays into the hands of that team. Don’t worry about the hoofers, they will come down with the decorations, it’s the hoofers after all.
Away from the present is the near future, the FA Cup has thrown up a tasty draw for us all.
Tiny Totts at home at 5.15pm on a Saturday. An interesting choice for the old bill to deal with. Time was that would have been a guaranteed early ko but TV rules the world these days. Lock up your daughters it’s sure to be an interesting afternoon.
First up though is yet another BIG game. Away to Napoli and our fate is still not sealed. You can’t get much tougher can you? I’m not out there for the game, didn’t want to get stabbed in the arse, and as far as I know under 200 great gooner have made the journey. Napoli are third in Italy but the saving grace is that they have the fat-spanish-waiter in charge. We all know he is erratic, hopefully he has a little wobble before kick off and plays the keeper up front. We need a draw to win the group, but if we lose we’re out, it’s cut and dry. What a crazy group it has been. I’m still shocked Marseille haven’t woken up, but even with Dortmund’s mountain of injuries, I’m not sure they’d stand a chance of getting anything off them. We had it so easy in the last game against them, they are just not at the races.
We got a few hits on Sunday, Howard Webb pretended not to see half of them, but I’d fancy Arsene to start with the team that ended the game on Sunday. Flamini will start and Rosicky is a usual European starter. Walcott must now be ready to rock so Rambo, Jack, and Santi can rest up to bully Na$ri on Sunday.
Whatever happens it’s sure to be one of those bum clenching night, even if you are two-nil up, anything can happen in this sort of tie. I’m fairly sure we’ll be close in our game and looking over our shoulders to the South of France hoping they can wake up for 5 minutes!! I hate this sort of night, I think I’ll go shopping, or to the driving range……. far too stressful for my young bones!!
Come on The Arsenal!
