A couple of little stories around this morning.
Firstly Gael Clichy has his eyes set on the left back position now that he’s making his comeback from injury. He says:
With Ashley gone now, I am the only real left-back. I have got a great chance and the boss knows that too.
When he’s fit and on form he’s a very good player indeed. The only problem is we haven’t seen a fit Gael Clichy for a very long time and while I hope he puts all his injury problems behind him he’s got to get a decent period of injury free games under his belt before he dispels the worries that hang over him.
On the other hand I’m not sure that even when he is fit he’s the best option we have at left back. For me a back four of Eboue – Kolo – Senderos – Gallas is the best we have at the moment (especially with Lauren still out and a long way from coming back). We shall see.
Speaking of Gallas Arsene Wenger is not convinced he’s fully fit and he’s had a little pop at French manager Raymond Domenech saying:
Domenech is like other managers of countries. They donâ€™t contact you. Itâ€™s like giving your car to a guy and him returning it without any petrol in it.
Which is a nice quote but slightly spoiled by the fact we played Gallas against Charlton when he clearly had a problem with his hamstring.
Football’s most orange vice-chairman, Double-D, became the Chairman of the G14 group yesterday. He’ll hold the position for the next 12 months and no doubt make lots of super new play friends all over Europe.
“Let’s all go to my house and play ‘Share seller 2’ on my xBox”, he’ll say.
“Hurrah!”, they’ll say.
Finally, and most importantly, my new team played their second game of the season last night and we spanked Google 3-0. They were always looking for the searching pass but it never quite came off for them.
That means Arseblog is officially three times better than Google. Oh yes.
Update: If you notice anything odd with the site today it’s because I’ve just upgraded WordPress and broken some stuff. Please bow your heads and say a silent prayer that Tom can fix it!
