Just when we were preparing to get our season back on track following the transfer deadline frenzy, we’re rocked with devastating news that our best defender is going to be out for two months following surgery on his ankle. How convenient seeing as our star midfielder Jack Wilshere is also facing similar time on the sidelines. “Oh to be a Gooner”
Oh yeah Morning to you wherever you are, hard to call it a good one seeing as I was up all night thanks to this new coloring I got which makes my right eye red(I think its called Red-Eye, we call it Apollo). Let’s move on to more important matters. Surely AW & the medical team saw this coming either that or their continued incompetence with player management has to be addressed as this is a recurring event every year since 2008 when Gary Lewin left us.
For those that have been quick to point the finger of blame at the physios, I’d have you know its entirely Wenger’s fault. Reports from inside the club are that his training methods are too rigorous and how he hardly changes them believing if you stretch the players past their limit, they’ll be fitter. Where’s the logic in that? Take Wilshere for example, the new GPS technology put in place showed last season that he was in the red zone(kinda like my eye this morning only my eye is sexier) but Wenger ignored it and continued to play him. We all know the end result of that.
I’m just glad we made those deadline deals when we did if not I’d be pissed and broken right now. We should be able to manage without them, I don’t see us going into a free fall, I expect Arteta & Ramsey to pick up gauntlet and lead from the midfield with Mertesacker and Santos at the back.
He just lost his appeal after flaunting the rules of his touchline ban and in so doing, got a two game touchline suspension. Platini’s witch hunt against our boss continues, shame, you’d think as country men they would get along nicely.
The wunderkid picked up from where he left off on his U21 debut(where he grabbed 2 assists) by coming off the bench and changing the game for England. They were a goal down when Stuart Pearce introduced him & Lansbury off the bench, AOC was quickly into action by providing a cross for the equalizer. He did not stop there, he provided another assist then won a penalty which was converted to make it 3-1 and like in the last game, he provided another assist for Lansbury. The kid is more than alright, I can’t wait for the Carlin Cup game against Shrewsbury to see him & Ryo.
That’s about it for now, let’s pray none of the other players on international duty pick up knocks or injuries. Till then, do have a great day wherever you are. Cheers
