So no-one was really expecting too much excitement this transfer window, But Emery finally got his man and Suarez will be on loan to us till the end of the season with an option to buy. The only suprise when the club announced it was them welcoming him to Arsenal and not to THE Arsenal. WE ARE THE ARSENAL, the THE seperates us from other clubs, it’s a respect thing, it’s a class thing. No-one calls that lot THE Tottenham, unless its followed by are shit.
Going out on loan is young Smith-Rowe who will spend the rest of the season at RB Leipzig in Germany. This is a great move for the youngsters education and does seem very on point these days to look at young players in the German league. From the rumblings I hear Smith-Rowe wanted to go on loan at the start of the season but Emery wanted a good look at him and get him used to his style. Smith-Rowe was rewarded with a few games for the 1st team and took them well. Can only hope RB Leipzip give him plenty of games and he comes back to us next season a better player.
Young Eddie may have woken up today a little disappointed to also not be on his way to Germany. He desperately needs 1st team action week in week out, sitting on the bench right now is doing him no favours. But with only 1 attacking player coming in Eddie will remain the 3rd choice Striker. If he gets the chance this season he has to take it with both feet, we may need him too !
Man City away is really giving me the F.E.A.R Fukin ‘Ell Arsenal’s Rubbish. Whilst we have won 96 games Vs them compared to them only winning 54 (45 draws) since they have been funded by an oil rich nation we have been on the end of a right kicking too many times. We have lost the last 4 on a spin scoring only once and letting in 11. Man City are coming off the back of an away defeat to Newcastle, so there is some hope, but with our lack of fit defenders we are really going to need a bit of luck and taking every half chance we get up there end.
An odd fact is since we lost our opening 2 games we have gathered only 3 points less than Man City and we are 5 points up on 24 games last season. I’m seeing too many “fans” and I will use that term loosely happy when we lose or grind out a win, too many wanting any reason to have a pop at the new boss, oddly a lot these “fans” were the same ones who thought the ex-boss walked on water, you can draw your own conclusions to that. Yes we are having a bumpy ride, yes at times Emerys sides do look unblanaced and without a clear plan or style. But anyone with the smallest knowledge of football would’ve been expecting that and that’s without having major injuries with the defenders. Have a bit of faith in Emery eh and less of the F.E.A.R
Up The Arsenal
