Yaay it’s match day again.
i’m so excited, I mean who wouldn’t be?? After the horror of the last international break, here we are having games back to back to back. What a joy that is.
So we face Ludogorets today (I hope I got the spelling right??), on paper they look like the whooping boys in the group but we all know how these things work.
So far they have just one point from 2 games and they sure would be looking to increase that. I got a glimpse of the boys in training and they all looked very excited. Good for us, Ramsey and Giroud are both back in training but they are short for the game today and we could expect to see them in action soon.
Back to the game though, The Ludogorets captain has been very vocal ahead of the game today and for some reason he feels his team can upset the gunners. I don’t know if he’s just trying to give them some confidence or he actually believes they could pull off an upset.
Ludogorets captain Svetoslav Dyakov is confident the Bulgarian champions have highlighted Arsenal’s weak spot – even if he believes the Gunners are one of the best teams in the world.
Dyakov reckons they can cause a shock against Arsenal having not been drawn on their weaknesses, even if he feels Arsene Wenger’s side are among the world’s elite.
‘It is a unique stadium and every player dreams to play here,’ he said on the eve of the contest.
‘Arsenal are one of the teams which are playing some of the best football in the world, they can play their style of game against Barcelona or anybody, there is a lot of movement, a lot of passing the ball. It will be a pleasure to play here against them.
‘Teams like Arsenal have very few weak spots, our coach has given us the information and I can’t disclose it. If we have some luck and play well, we can expect something from the game.’
‘Arsenal is a very good team, I personally respect the manager Arsene Wenger, 20 years his name is connected with Arsenal and he has achieved everything with this team. We are going to come out and play like we have in the other games we have had.’
Some bold words from the man there, their last encounter in the Champions league was against Liverpool and they lost that game 2-1 courtesy of a last gasp Steven Gerrard penalty. I believe our boys would not be complacent in anyway and would take this game very serious.
Arsenal have lost only one game in 7 months, winning the last 6 and I don’t think they would want to add another one not in the least against Ludogorets.
As much as we should take this game serious, I believe this is a good chance to rotate and hope players like Perez, Holding and even the Ox would get a chance to start the game.
Good luck boys.
Till later, do have a nice day.
