As good as it was having Rosicky out there on the weekend it will be great to have Özil refreshed and back in the side. The criticism of him has been crazy. How long ago was the Manchester United game? Who was our best player that night? How long ago was the Southampton game? He was the only one pushing us forward that game. On the contrary, I get the sense that Mesut is actually about to go on a good run of form. There are some good signs. As I already explained he has been our best player in recent games, started the Bayern game in good shape but the Ox will help him play his game. The pre assist for Podolski's goal against Liverpool. Us playing high up the pitch with more runners will also help him massively. I am pretty certain that we won't have to wait until very long before his doubters go missing. That is what tends to happen you see.
Because I've been ill all week I have missed out on several talking points that I wanted to skim over. Firstly I thought Arsène's response to Mourinho was perfect. Don't engage with him further but throw it back his way whilst making him look small. The exact type of response you would expect from someone intelligent towards someone well, a little bit thick. Arsène is correct when he says that it reflects badly on Chelsea and their manager. The press should really give it the contempt it deserves trouble is they are too busy rubbing Mourinho's belly to do that. I am wasting far too much time on this so I'll move on
Manchester United with a red and white hurricane tomorrow. I don't know how Manchester United will approach the game tomorrow, although I have an idea but I would love to see us pressure their every step. I don't know where you squeeze in Rosicky but I want to see him sprinting after a Manchester United centre back only for said centre back to boot the ball rushed straight to Arteta on the half way line, Arsenal players camped in the Manchester United half, ready to have another go at them. I love when we play on the front foot like that. I want to see Koscielny going through van Persie to win the ball, jogging back into position and not picking up the traitor. I want to see Giroud
We did manage to get some business done, experienced midfielder Kim Källström will come in on loan as back up as we have some short term problems what with Ramsey's injury continuing for 6 weeks at least, Flamini picking up a 3 match ban and Jack Wilshere suffering from trouble some little bit crock leg. So going into the dreaded February and March without our midfield who be scary. I have no idea of his quality and I will reserve judgement until I see him myself. I've been reading about how utterly poor he is from many who said Ramsey is not good enough to wear the shirt and that Flamini is under whelming only to be the saviour a few weeks later so like I said, I will wait before writing him off completely. Hopefully he doesn't get much of a look in anyway because it will mean
