Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas readers.
Sorry it’s gonna be a short one, it being Christmas and all. I reckon y’all have the whole day planned with family and friends and all that. I’m a hermit, so I reckon I’ll be home alone…and watch Home Alone
Anyhow, on to Arsenal news and there really isn’t any. Arsene held his press conference on Wednesday and the news is that everyone that slayed Manchester City should be available for Southampton. I thought we were going to have Arteta back but apparently I was wrong, we are not getting him back and we will have to face Southampton with a bench that has Oxlade Chamberlain as the only attacking force at our disposal…unless you count The Jeff and Iwobi, who in my opinion are only there to make up the numbers.
Southampton have not won in 5 games with 4 defeats and 1 draw. So one can say they are not in the greatest form, nonetheless they are still a dangerous foe whom we’ll have to be in our best form to beat. They are one of those problem teams we have to deal with. This is a potential banana skin match and we have t navigate it properly.
I do trust the team at our disposal though and I have high hopes for the day. I am supposed to have a party on the day and I reckon i’ll sneak out just to see the game.
