Little or nothing going on Arsenal wise this morning. We didn’t get to see Theo Walcott yesterday but Ashley Cole played as a quite dreadful England scraped a late 2-0 win over Trinidad and Tobago.
On paper England probably have the best group of players they’ve ever had but they’re nothing like a team. They have no style of play, no craft, no creativity. Still, they have 6 points from 6 and people will say results are all that matters but when you have to sit through 85 minutes of shite football you might argue differently.
They play Sweden in their next game who knocked Paraguay out with a late Freddie Ljungberg goal and the Arsenal man is looking forward to playing England, saying:
It’s going to be difficult but it will be a massive game as both teams want to win the group.
England will certainly need to play better if they want to finish top and Sven has to drop Michael Owen who is quite obviously not in any shape to play in a World Cup. 6 months out injured will that to a player though.
Today sees Robin van Persie take on Kolo and Emannuel Eboue as Holland play the Ivory Coast. Should be a good one that.
The press in Spain are reporting that Lauren is a target for Sevilla to replace Daniel Alves who is going to Liverpool. They’re looking for experience and hope that a return home will appeal to Lauren who only has one year left on his current contract. Personally I hope he stays because I think he’s a much better player than Eboue.
That’s it. Friday is here. I only have 16 billion things left to organise. What a productive week it’s been.
