I thought I’d throw out a cheeky Saturday blog today, just because I can. More correctly it’s because I’ve had a couple of beers and have a bit of time on my hands. Hooray!
First things first I just want to say “thank you” to everybody who left comments on yesterday’s post. To have over 90 people wishing me and my family well was completely unexpected and strange as it seemed, it touched not only me but my brother (Panda Bear) and Mum (Mama Fry) who regularly contribute to this blog. In fact, my Mum actually read the blog before I’d had a chance to let her know about it and she found the whole thing really touching. So thanks everyone, I really mean it.
Moving onto the game and there’s not a lot I can add from yesterday’s post apart from the news that Bacary Sagna will not be taking part. I wrongly expected that he’d shake off his virus to start but it seems our hopes now rest with Kieran Gibbs playing through his groin injury or we’re stuck with a situation that sees Mikael Silvestre moved to left-back and Alex Song pulled back into the centre of defence. It will be a bit disappointing to see this happen given Song’s recent form in the middle but in Denilson and Abou Diaby we have options in midfield that we just don’t have at the back.
I’ll be watching the game tonight on TV with Panda Bear and another regular contributor, SettaKeys, so it should be a lot of fun. I still think our attacking options will get us over the line but I am starting to get a bit worried about the prospect of Didier Drogba coming up against our makeshift defence. Perhaps a couple of beers will fix that…
Have a good one guys, and here’s cheers to an Arsenal win!
