Manchester City were minutes away from losing at home to Sunderland but for Vito Mannone error but a draw will do City no good after losing to Liverpool. But that is the Premier League, every team is capable of dropping points which is why it is great news for us that we are getting some more quality fit and ready for the final push. Had this have been a month or so earlier then we may even be rubbing our hands at the prospect of a title fight but there is little point crying over what might have been. Even with those players fit we may have still dropped the same amount of points, I doubt it but we will never know. Arsène Wenger has told us in his press conference that Mesut Özil and Nacho Monreal will be back for the weekend, that boost on top of the freshness of
Even if Arsene never spends a penny again, we will always be able to show off our resources to a potential Wenger replacement whenever that time comes. Our club is in fantastic shape, the squad has a very good average age with plenty of scope for player improvements. This is not an 'accident' this is something our manager has worked very hard towards. So while Arsene Wenger has his faults some of those perhaps self defeating at times I am fully aware of his strengths and unlike some,
Looking back at the Chelsea display you can't help but feel that his defensive game has been missed massively at times, especially in the big games where we do not always have the ball. I remember reading earlier on in the season how Ramsey was among the top scorers if not the top scorer as well as completing the most amount of successful tackles in the league. You can twist stats however which way you choose but that really is as black and white as it gets. A player who was on top of his game at both ends of the pitch.
Almost as if his player valuations are detrimental rather than a club strength. The next sentence I would expect to hear is something along the lines of 'We need a David Dein type, who can strike while the iron is hot, pay the extra monies and seal the deal. Arsene just hands over his list and off Deintype goes and comes back the player' cigar in hand, tie loosened and two top, super, super quality signings underneath his arms.
