My football match was called off due to adverse weather conditions. Apparently it's too wet. The groundsman may have a point, I'm sure I just saw Noah go past my bedroom window. Now my problem is that football on a Sunday is one of a number of physical activities in my week. The others being getting pissed and drinking from dog-bowls. I could just go swimming. It appears that a swimming pool has formed itself in my back garden over night.
Anyway, onto Arsenal and this very rare Sunday post. So rare it could be a collectors item. We are back. We looked very impressive against Stoke City yesterday. The pessimistic will say that it was only Stoke but you can only beat what is in front of you. We did. And did it well.
A lot of stick has been thrown at Arsenal lately. Well it was always gonna happen, and we probably deserved it. Three defeats in a row aint the greatest of form but maybe this stick gave Arsenal a kick straight up the jacksie.
If I was Arsene Wenger I'd use little man syndrome for these players. We are probably the smallest team in the Premiership. Not quite Snow White's mates but not far from it either. On their day these little fellas in Arsenal shirts can play the best football ever seen to mankind. That's no joke.
Our problem is the likes of Chelsea can stop us from playing this Harlem globe-trotter style and brand of football. We seem to be out-muscled. I wouldn't say bullied but even if we eat our weetabix man just can't compete.
What do we do? I think we need to get the cheque book out. Le Boss needs to dust down the old wallet and spend some wonga. I'd sign a striker because in my eyes you defend from the front and the little fellas like Eduardo and Vela, try as they might, won't get a lot of joy from the likes of John Terry.
Nickla Bendtner could. But like RVP he is injured. RVP's season is pretty much over. It aint pretty though. You cannot rely on Nikki B all season because we could find ourselves in this position again. Like we are in now!
With this new formation we are using, one main striker, you need someone with plenty of strength and work-rate. RVP was beginning to show that side to his game before he was written off for the season.
Over at Le Grove they give Arshavin a big gee up. He signed in January last season and he gave Arsenal and Gooners a real lift when we needed it. Signing someone this January could have a similar impact.
So who do we sign? In my opinion, it doesn't even have to be a permanent deal for anyone. A loan signing could do the trick. In some quarters I've seen the name Adriano mentioned. Now I used to love Adriano. He was massive in my eyes and I don't mean his weight. He has had some well-publicised problems but he seems over them. Perhaps a loan deal for him? If, he was back to his best. And he would be available in the Champions League. Wenger would be ideal for him.
Chamakh is an obvious choice for some. It's known that Wenger has shown interest in him in the past. Like Arshavin was, he'd be cup-tied in the Champions League so it wouldn't faze Wenger to sign him. He'd probably be a cheap option. Wenger style.
It's difficult thats for sure but there are options out there for Arsene Wenger. If we do make a signing it needs to be someone with a physical presense. Little Arshavin did the trick yesterday but we can't rely on that for the rest of the season.
Keep it Goonerish...............
