The real football starts today.
It was nice to have the Premier League back yesterday but all the top sides play today. So make sure you watch match of day 2.
I want to know if Arsene decides to start with Eduardo who has a slight ankle knock. I really doubt that we will play 4-5-1 at home but Adebayor is out and Wenger won't start with Bendtner or Theo upfront so if Da Silva does not make it then I'm not sure what Wenger tactics will be.
I expect the line up to be something like this...
Sagna Toure Gallas Clichy
Eboue Cesc Flamini Hleb/Rosicky
Eduardo/Hleb Van Persie
I woke up really early (ok, was woken up but nevermind) and the first thing I thought of was the match. I don't know if I would have coped had it been a 5.15pm kick off.
Fulham have spent alot in the transfer market this year (who hasn't?) and will probably look to cause us problems on the counter attack with Kamara and Healy. Hopefully they won't have many chances to do that and most importantly we can be ruthless and kill them off in the first 45 minutes.
The team before this one used to be so good at beating teams in the first 30 minutes. Then we used to rip the shit out of them on the counter. This team needs to learn a bit of that.
I was watching Sky Sports news this morning and one journalist (didn't catch his name) was talking about Arsene Wenger's health. He has been doing too much, especially since Davey Boy Dein left the club. I'm sure Arsene will install Grimindi after the transfer window closes. Once he does that then he can take a trip to Amsterdam and have a few spliffs and chill out in a cafe somewhere. That will help him relax.
Its looking likely that he will sign a new contract in the next month.
Right that's about the size of it for now, I hope the boys can justify my excitement this afternoon.
COME ON YOU REDDDSSSS!!
