Not too much happening at the moment, hope you all had a good weekend and are now revitalised and filled with vim and vigour for the week ahead. Up and at ‘em, get and and go, and such. Not me though, I’m fucking knackered.
Anyway, it’s a big week coming up. We’ve got Juventus on Wednesday and then an in-form Manchester United at the weekend. Obviously we have to concentrate on Juventus first then we can start to think about United and the Italians didn’t have a good time this weekend. They were held to a 0-0 draw and bottom side Treviso and their form and confidence is not high compared to ours. However, it’s Wednesday night that counts and remember how nobody was giving us a chance when we went to Madrid? There’s still a lot of work to do.
No news yet about the injuries to Cesc or Eboue. As funny as it might sound Cesc is probably the easiest to replace. Diaby played very well on Saturday and will be full of confidence if needed and while we’ll certainly miss Cesc because of his exceptional ability and form it would be the break up of the back four that would worry me most. As a unit they’ve been outstanding and we don’t really have an obvious option there. Kerrea Gilbert is back from his injury but he really does lack the experience for such a big game. The other options would be to bring in Campbell but he’d have to play in the centre and I don’t want to see Kolo and Phil broken up. If that happened I suppose Phil would play right back. The other option is to play Djourou and right back and leave the other three alone. Anyway, fingers crossed both of them come through and we should get some news on that today.
In a quick round-up of the other stories Gilberto wants Thierry Henry to stay at Arsenal forever, Jens Lehmann’s chances of being Germany’s number 1 for the World Cup increase after the albino gorilla made two horrendous mistakes this weekend prompting Bayern’s management to blame Jurgen Klinnsman’s waiting game and former Gunner Edu made his debut for Valencia this weekend after spending 7 months out with a cruciate ligament injury. Good for him.
Ok, keep an eye on the news feeds for injury updates. Catch ya later.
