The B’Ham Preview : Time To Get Our Season Back On Track
If we ever needed a win so badly, then now is the time to get one. Why? I’ll tell you why. Our next fixture after this is away to Man City and after two straight losses, a win would be most welcome. This weekend’s fixture against B’ham is already a win for us on paper,but then again so was the game against West Brom. Arsenal will have to guard against Complacency and indeed find their consistency in front of goal.
This weekend is a special one for two reasons. It marks AW’s 800th game in charge of Arsenal and also the weekend before his birthday which he turns 61(Born )I’m sure he’ll want 3 points more than a Special wine for the game and a Creamy cake with candles for his birthday.
Arsene will be able to call on the services of Bendtner, Walcott and Gibbs to boost his already thin squad with injuries to the likes of Koscielny and Sagna. Cesc, in AW’s books is still a game away from being ready but this makes no sense seeing as reports have him fit. Oh well, I guess AW has a Masters Degree in Physiotherapy as well. Long term casualties RVP and Vermaelen should return in 3 weeks and 10 days respectively. Bendtner’s fitness and sharpness has impressed AW in training thus far and Theo’s eagerness to play is a welcome relief.
B’ham will be looking to kick off their season as they’re currently 16th with 7 points from 7 games also have key men missing in Cameron Jerome and Craig Gardener buh Alex Hleb is in line for a return to his old stomping ground and Zigic should fill in for Jerome. Le Boss has refuted reports that we have a soft centre and lack the winning mentality, this is the perfect opportunity to vindicate his stance. Let’s hope the added fire power of Walcott and Bendtner can help to destroy our opponents come 17:00 GMT tomorrow.
Keep it positive gooners, all hope is not lost and as someone rightly put it, “NO MATTER HOW BAD THINGS LOOK, THERE IS ALWAYS A SCOUSER TO LAUGH AT”.
From wherever you are reading, have fun still.
Escobar says so!
