1.. Chesney got a new improved contract, well done to him for not only improving but for also looking like he’s knuckling down and working hard but also for not making a fool of himself on social media anymore. Other players at the club take note eh? Dench not even on the Bench..
2.. Gibbs – must of been great for him to get into another Engerland squad, as I said at the start of the season playing well and keeping fit for us will reap international call ups.
3.. Our Big Fucking German, really looked like he enjoyed the mid week win over Woy’s Boys. Clean sheet, scored the winner, was a pest in Engerland’s box and a rock in the Germans. Starting to really love him.
4.. This may be the most important reason, not only did we not get any fresh injuries we actually have players back. Diaby is obviously not one of them.
5.. Flamini is suspended after picking up 5 bookings which means Wenger cant play both him and Arteta in the same side, which really really does not work. I hope they sit Flamini next to Big Frank for the game, so Frank can have a quiet word about club traditions.
6.. THEO IS BACK! Two things we have missed badly so far this season is width and pace, Theo brings both. I cant wait to see Ozil spraying balls forwards for him to run onto.
7.. Southampton, They are a bit of a surprise to be sitting 3rd in the table but with a draw at Man Utd, a win at Liverpool and only letting in 5 goals in 11 Prem games (the meanest in the division) its no fluke. This will not be a walk over for us today.
8.. Ramsey and Wilshere are both fit despite injury fears this week, I’d expect Ramsey to start and Wilshere to be on the bench.
9.. Cazorla, Ozil, Walcott and Giroud…just think about that for a second…
10.. Wenger Knows, he cant take Southampton lightly and they will run and fight for every ball but we should have a little bit too much class for them.
Predicted starting XI – Chesney, Sagna, BFG, Kos, Gibbs, Arteta, Ramsey, Santi, Ozil, Theo, Giroud.
Henry, back training at the club during the MLS ‘off season’. This could be great for the squad to have him around as the better the players you train with the better you can become but he should not come to us to play. We should of bought a top class forward two summers ago and Henry to come in and play 3-4 games is not the answer. Despite the good goals we have all seen him put in for the New York Red Bulls the standard of play in the MLS is Div 3 (in old money) so yes it’s good to see him around but please no, please buy a world class forward not loan a former one.
