So I’m sitting here playing fifa with a couple of mates that just happen to be Arsenal fans, yes I surround myself with good company. Whilst using Arsenal I can’t help but ponder on whether we can finish in the top four or not. At the moment we are sitting 5th on the log with just four points behind Tottenham Chokespurs. They are not used to playing in Europe and it’s showing with their current dip in form. I did get a message via the grape vine (twitter) that the White Heat Lane talisman, Gareth Bale is not feeling very well during this International break. That’s good news for us provided we can capitalize on the fact that we play Reading when we get back on the 30th. We do have the advantage of a game in hand but that’s probably against Manchester United so its probably not a game in hand. If you are the betting type I would no doubt back United and take advantage of some great deals at FREEbets.org.uk. No, I am not undermining my team at all it’s just that it is very hard to believe that we can beat them at the moment. They have build up some sickening momentum and from here on end its just full steam ahead for them. With them being 15 points of Man City (sitting at 2nd place with 59 points) I just don’t picture them losing to anyone for the rest of the season.I’m starting to notice a pattern here, over the past two seasons we sold Nasri, Clichy, Cesc and Van Persie and all four of those players have won some sort of Cup with their new clubs having on their first season. Now I’m not speaking against the club so please don’t send out a mob. I’m just pointing out the errors within the club. We have so much talent but there is no support
structure to help us win the Cup.
Back to the topic at hand. . .
I have said this before that we have a very temperamental team and that is concerning for me. We have shown that we have what it takes, the problem is showing it with every game we play. While watching the game against Swansea last week i noticed that after we went a goal up we took it DOWN a notch and that would have been okay if we were sitting in first place with 20 points ahead of second place. You see how ridiculous that sounds? That is the only time you can ever take it down a notch in a game, and even then you should think twice. It’s almost like we just don’t want it bad enough, granted we won by two goals to nil but I just can’t help but think that it could have been a lot more if we just worked harder. A little side note: Carzola is working very hard lately and I am loving it.
We had a rumor that Jack would be out for about 6 weeks. I am glad, happy, over joyed and all those other nice words. No, not at the fact that he is injured but the lad need rest and he needs to pipe down a little. Yes, he is a vital part of the team and he is absolutely brilliant but u was starting to wonder if maybe he wasn’t getting a little bit overrated as a young player. Again please do not send a mob just read what I have to say here. If you look at Jack Rodwell, his transfer to City was a huge deal in the media but now look he is sitting and watching them play from the side lines. Is he a bad player? No, he just needs to learn his place. Please, I know jack is well beyond his years for the amount of talent that he has but he needs to know his place. With a little less pressure he would be 10x the player he is now. I’m sure he also gets tired of feeling like he has to carry the Pride of London on his shoulders. His injury will give Rosicky the game time he deserves. I think our squad at the moment has the quality to finish fourth with a little luck. The consistency part of the game has to come from us but the luck, well that’s really dependent on whether Spurs continues to lose and dip.
I’m Excited for the game against Reading. We have a good chance, we have a good side all we are missing is the raw hunger for that Champions League spot next season.
There’s so much more that I want to say but i know reading long articles has no swag
