Quick update and Cesc, Clichy and Wenger going nowhere

He is back

He is back

Quite a bit over the last day or so and news that Theo and Eduardo are back in the squad for Sunday’s game, i will give you more on that in the match preview on Sunday morning/Saturday evening.

Anyway, a late late post here because I’m absolutely shattered and fell asleep before blogging so apologies if you came here expecting to see something earlier.

There was a bullshit story about Cesc going if Wenger goes which obviously meant ‘cue Man City rumours!’ in every office of every tabloid paper. Poor form really. Wenger came out straight away on the official site to rubbish such rumours and stated Cesc could stay until he is 32 and really secure legend status at the club, Wenger said on the speculation:

“I have never allowed anyone to question my commitment to this club, in the good and in the bad times, that has not changed in my mind, you have told me I am on their wanted list, I do not know if that is true or not. It is certainly not true because they have a very good manager in Mark Hughes. He is doing a good job. They have to keep confidence in him.

“On my side, I am contracted [with Arsenal] until 2011 and until 2011 I do not envisage to go anywhere else.”

Good to hear, and i expected nothing less. Whenever i have heard speculation about Wenger’s future i always rubbish it within seconds because he is a man of principle, one of the only in the game like that. Wenger will never cut short a contract, he will always see it out until the end. On Cesc Wenger had this to say:

“I hope his future will last longer than mine because I think he can still be here in 10 years. He should be one of the bases of this club. I think the Club should be built around personalities like Cesc and that’s why I hope he will still be here.

“He was born in 1987 and he is 22 years old in 2009 and at 32 he will still play.”

I really can’t see Cesc leaving for a long time, i just can’t visualise it. You know when you are watching a truly great footballer running with the ball such as Zidane and they never look like losing it? I just can’t see Cesc leaving for a long time.

Van Persie is’s player of the month for the fourth consecutive month. Well done that man.

As you can tell from the picture at the top of the blog Cesc Fabregas is back in training, along with Mikael Silvestre, great news that he is back (Cesc) and he will give everyone a boost. I just can’t wait to see our captain back.

Our youngsters have done us proud by beating the Spuds on their own vegetable patch by 3 goals to 1, and they even had the vision to make it all the more painful for the spuds by leaving it ’til the dying moments before grabbing the winner and then putting the icing on the cake. J.E. Thomas looks a fantastic prospect!

The Fergie and Wenger love in continues.

Wenger has spoken about bans for malicious tackles and whilst i feel its hard to prove whether a tackle is malicious or not, the current system is a joke and needs to be changed. Especially for the likes of Kevin Nolan.

Right, more tomorrow with a match preview after that.

Up the Gunners

  1. Van Persie player of the month? He scored one goal against Roma, apart from that and Eduardos 2 the strikers did fuck all!

    The defence deserves the plaudits and Willy Gallas was my vote. It seems the fan favourites only ever win that!
