So the season has barely started and already we are looking at a growing injury list. Tomas Rosicky has joined Diaby, Adebayor and possibly Eboue on the treatment table.

I am hoping the boys can continue to show fight up at Ewood park tomorrow because we will need it against Mark Hughes' thugs.

Sparky has been bigging up Van Persie as most managers do before they have to face them so don't listen to him. His way of dealing with 'the new Henry' will probably be something like..

'Lads, as soon as he gets the ball whack him in the leg because the ref will ignore it as always because its Arsenal...'

Well, something along those lines.

I expect to see Hleb on the left in place of Rosicky and I think he will be key yet again. I have always said that he would be much better from the left coming in to his right foot. I think the combinations of Eduardo, Hleb, Cesc and Van Persie will win the game for us. Hopefully Eddie can get on the score sheet.

Other news is the same old news really. Arsene says that he will come out about the new contract soon. Ok, can everyone stop talking about it until its signed? Its slightly tedious now.

I was kinda hoping that Spurs could continue their run of getting beaten every game but I guess it had to end at some point.

ok, that's enough. Goodie bye bye
