I have to take the ladies to the airport this morning so this is going to be a quick blog. I suppose you could just read my google reader links (see the toolbar on the side) but this is so much more fun!
First up, Marcos Senna — who is supposedly NOT playing tomorrow, has decided to take a swipe at Arsenal and Adebayor.
Adebayor didn’t impress me. I have scored more beautiful goals that that one. At my age and with everything I have seen in football, it is difficult to find a player who impresses me. Adebayor is a good player but you cannot say he is a superstar yet – he still has a long way to go before he reaches what Henry did for Arsenal.
No argument about comparing Ade to Henry from me. They aren’t the same player at all. The only thing I would say is that if Marcos Senna is underwhelmed by Ade, he should check out a match with Bendtner leading the line.
Also, I love the idea of Senna saying he’s scored a goal of Adebayor’s equal.
Not wanting to leave the rest of the Arsenal team without scrutiny Senna went on to say:
Arsenal have a very good, strong team, but they have not peaked yet, they are going to be better next year and better still the year after next, and will have a very strong team who could dominate in England or in Europe. It is not that they are easy to play now. You can see the potential, the talent and the quality they possess, but they are still growing. They lack a bit of experience, which is why they are behind Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea.
F5ck You, SENNA!!!>?!&&! How dare you talk about Arsenal in such an even handed and intelligent way???!?!?!
Wenger, meanwhile, is still a true believer having never lost his faith in this team. More details from Wenger’s were released on the dot com and I especially like the quote where he supposedly spoke to a fan.
I remember winning at Chelsea this year. When I left the stadium, this bloke came to me at the end and said ‘I am an Arsenal fan, good game, but I don’t think we are going to win the league with such a team!’ I told him: ‘You are not an Arsenal fan. You have just seen some 20-21-year-old kids in midfield beating the likes of Ballack, Lampard, Drogba and Anelka! Haven’t you got anything less negative to say?’ It is unbelievable that, nowadays, you can’t cheat people on the quality of football but you can manipulate their opinion.
Hey, I’ve heard that comeback “you’re not a real Arsenal fan” before. I wonder what it feels like to be a “true” Arsenal supporter? I guess I’ll never know.
Anyway, that’s your lot, time to take the girls to the airport. See you tomorrow for the surprise news that Senna is fully fit.
