I'm not suggesting that Arsene Wenger has put the Arsenal squad on a diet and is starving them. What I mean is that Arsenal have been starved of trophies for four years and that the squad should be hungry to stop the barren run. And I think that they will.
I really believe that we will win some silverware this season and you know what I think we will win? I have a gut instinct that the Champions League trophy could be heading for the Emirates trophy room. Anyway, that's for another day.
The three players I think will help push us on to silverware are Eduardo, Rosicky and Diaby. They must be the hungriest players in football. How frustrating must it be for those three? To watch your team mates playing and not being involved.
In Eduardo's case we have just got to happy that he will even be playing again after his horrific injury. It will be tough for him when he gets back on the pitch but he is a tough lad and I think he will cope. The first tackle he receives will be the most important and I think he will be ready.
Rosicky is one of the most talented players in the Arsenal squad, it's a shame we don't see it often enough. He is one of the key players for Arsenal when fit and provides so much creativity. I love watching him play and hopefully when he regains fitness he can keep fit and prove to us how good he can be. Because trust me, he is mustard.
Diaby is only young but has proved very injury prone. Before he broke his leg a couple of years ago he was beginning to show glimpses of his talent. He has a lot to prove, especially as the role of partner to Cesc Fabregas is up for grabs. That spot in the team is there for the taking and many are tipping Diaby to take the chance with both hands. It will show a lot of his character when he gets fit. Will he take the opportunity or will he fold?
Those three have watched their friends play for a long time now. The hunger from each of them can only help Arsenal win things. They will be bursting to get on the pitch and I cannot wait to see them pulling on the Arsenal shirt and proving how hungry they are.
Keep it Goonerish..............
