Pandev to come on a free?/Hull round-up/injuries

In Arsenal FC, Premier League on December 24, 2009 by Highbury N5 Editor

Hello there, its been a while hasn’t it.

Work commitments meant I missed the Hull game the other day and have also restricted me to only being able to update my Twitter ( @thegoonblog ). I now have a couple of days to chill and hopefully write a few blogs.

So, where to start? The win against Hull seems a decent place….

From what I saw we got the job done well and also kicked a few lumps out of the big orange shites, there was a lot of hoo-ha on some websites claiming Nasri kicked/shot/stabbed/stamped on that Hull player who’s name I really can’t remember. All he did was tread on his foot, it wasn’t a stamp or a kick as some claim it to be.

It was wrong no doubt, but then again, so were the reactions of the Hull players. It was good to see our boys involved in scuffles though and you just have to love this picture:

Nick Barmby was trying to play the hardman, which you can’t really do on the football pitch. What an odious little prick Barmby is.

That incident seemed to fire us up a bit and the goal-scoring started when Denilson curled home a beauty of a free-kick. Maybe it means he will take more in the future, I remember a  few years back when Beckham trained with us that he was teaching Denilson how to take free-kicks after training… it really was a beauty.

The second really was a case of Eduardo trying his best to miss a chance but it was just simpler to score, hopefully it gives him a bit of confidence, he has the ability – you could watch that turn he pulled off time and time again.

The enigma that is Abou Diaby had a blinder of a game and rounded it up with his fifth goal of the season, despite numerous injuries once again. He was brilliant and hopefully he can keep this form long enough to see off Aston Villa on Sunday.

On another brilliant weekend for us we now sit only a couple of points off United with a game in hand and only a few more off Chelsea with a game in hand also, its quite some turnaround after the abysmal showing against Chelsea – what’s more impressive is that we have not really impressed in our performances but have still managed to close the gap. We can take great encouragement from that.

A January signing would be great and one name that has not been mentioned all that often is Goran Pandev who is able to leave Lazio on a free this January, this is a player who was valued between 10-20 million in the summer. Is he the type of striker I personally would like? Im not sure. Is he a Wenger type player? Most certainly. Lets see what develops.

What I can say is that in the next month we will see mountains of Dzeko, Gignac, Chamakh, Carlton Cole and Luca Toni themed stories on Newsnow.

The latest name is Louis Saha – the player who has not played much in the last 5 years through injuries. A perfect signing then !!! He would fit right in in the treatment room.

And as we all knew, Robin van Persie will probably not play again this season, and even if he did he wouldn’t have much form or match sharpness, he is a notoriously slow starter so our best hope is for him to be fighting fit for the start of next season. Annoying.

We wont see Traore, Bendtner or Clichy until the new year, Cesc will hopefully be fit for the Villa game after missing the Hull match.

So, things are looking up, lets hope they stay that way because the Villa game is important to open up a bit of breathing space, to shut up their fans and also get a bit of payback for the defeat last season.

Till tomorrow. I have my Christmas shopping to start. Oh joy …
