Welcome to a new week. One with the interlull, which means no Arsenal…or Arsenal news….or Arsenal related stuff.
I am going to see Batman v Superman today, so i’m pretty stoked. I plan to enjoy every second, I don’t care what the reviewers say.
On to things Arsenal, we are fast closing in on the end of the season and the odds are we’re going to be empty handed again and it’s all our fault. The voices against manager Arsene Wenger are growing louder and louder, but he’d been defended by his players including Bellerin, Koscielny and Mesut Ozil.
Speaking of Ozil, the German playmaker said in an interview:
“We know that it will not be easy and that we need reinforcements if we want next season to be on top here again.
“It is again interesting to see who invests in who and how much the clubs do during the summer break.
“In addition, great coaches are coming into the league. I am thinking primarily of Pep Guardiola. Wherever he has been, he had success. He is a coach, keen on playing and his teams are feared.”
Many are scared of the coming of Guardiola too, but it seems the players already have their eye on next season with this season looking more and more like a bust. The German did say it wasn’t over yet, stating that we couldn’t afford any ore slip ups and blah, blah, blah, but you do wonder if he believes we can indeed do anything this season.
It’s not uncommon to have the players ask for reinforcements. A couple of seasons ago, we had Giroud, Aterta, Mertesacker, Monreal and loads others asking for reinforcements, whether the coach goes for it or not is another kettle of fish, though it looks like he may not have a choice this summer with so many players being touted to leave.
I do think we should have an eye out on next season while doing our possible best to win this season. It’s such a slim chance, but it’s not impossible. We’ll see as things unfold.
There’s no real news, apart from the fact that Elneny and Iwobi will meet again in a game of football. Nigeria play Egypt in Alexandria tomorrow and it’ll be nice to see both boys get a run out. Fingers crossed we have no injuries and then we’ll see what we can do with our shambles of a season.
