Kalou in Arsenal talks?|The Return Of the King
Morning everyone! It’s the start of another week and I’m sure you are all fired up for tonight! We welcome Leeds to the Ems in the F.A Cup, a game with a lot to look forward to.
Just over a year ago, we were involved in the same fixture, one we had to rely on a last minute penalty to secure a replay!
I’m sure Wenger would have taken a lesson from that encounter. We made wholesale changes that afternoon and we lacked a spine to win the game.
RVP is in Dubai on break, and deservedly so. We need him fresh for the title run-in. Arteta should also get some rest as he’s played almost every game since he moved. Apart from these two guys, I expect everyone else to be involved.
I will like to see Sz13 in goal, with Kos and Mert, flanked by Miquel and Coqeulin in front of him. The midfield should comprise Song, Rosicky and Ramsey, and a front three of Oxo, Chamakh and Arsha will do just fine!
Oh? Haha…I can NEVER forget him! Thierry will definitely play this game and I think it will be from the bench to replace any of the front three. I’m looking forward to the kind of reception he’ll get! It will be mad I tell you!
Ramsey, Theo, Squid, Almunia, Benayoun, should all be on the bench just in case.
They have their own injuries too and it’s the Emirates at night, so I don’t see them posing too much of a threat. 3-0 to the good guys is my prediction.
To some more interesting news, Sky Sports reported early last night that Chelsea forward Salomon Kalou was on his way back to London for talks with Arsenal.
This story was later refuted as a rumour that sprang up in Arsenal column. Whatever the truth is, we know there’s genuine interest from Arsenal.
Kalou is a player who will definitely split opinions among Arsenal fans. No doubt, he’s experienced, very skillful and he definitely has some goals in him.
I’m not sure he’s what we need at the moment. Add this to the fact that he’s African and we’ll have to release him for the AFCON early next year. He’s a dynamic forward, not the clinical finisher we crave!
But at £3m, I wouldn’t refuse the chance to add another “wasting” talent to our ranks. What’s to say Arsene can’t reform him and convert him to the striker we want?
Do let me know what your thoughts are concerning Kalou and the return of Titi!
Meanwhile, we have a game to win tonight, C’MON YOU RIPPIN ROARERS!!!
