Morning all. Almost no news today so we're just working with the little bit we have. I had to take down the Manchester City Highlights as apparently they were violating some law or another. I'm sure you can find them somewhere if you look hard enough.
First off is Jens Lehmann, who is still speaking about his starting opportunities. For once however, he is actually kind of positive. Instead of throwing Almunia and the team and manager under the bus, he speaks highly of them.
"I like the club, I like how we play, I like the fans and the team and I feel I can still win something with Arsenal," Lehmann enthused.
"Why should I give up? There is still a chance of becoming No1 again. At this stage of the season the pressure is increasing and I know that experience will be very important later on."This is the most sense he has made yet in an interview this season. I personally don't think he'll get many more opportunities if Almunia is healthy, he didn't have a bad game at all against Manchester City and it's good to have him as cover should Almunia have another injury like this past week.
Cesc Fabregas talked about how the team would be "gutted" if they didn't win the title this year. So would I.
'We would be very disappointed if we didn't win it. That's certain.'
'Everyone is happy, everyone is working hard, we are consistent and that's really important for a team like us.'
That's absolutely the right attitude Cesc. You have to want it more than all the other cunty teams trying to win it. I think Cesc dreams about the title every night honestly. It should help us keep this run going.
The Ivory Cost won 5-0 over Guinea in the African Cup of Nations even without Kolo Toure at the back, who says he is fearing burnout at the end of the season.
"It is a concern that if we get to the final or the third-place match I will go back to London after being involved in five games in about 18 days."
"I have done this before but these are tough and physical games in a knockout competition."Is Kolo complaining about maybe winning the trophy for his country? It seems like it almost. We've played a lot of games in a short span as well so he would be just as tired playing for us. I want him back soon too but come on Kolo if you have a chance to win the tournament just keep your head down and keep playing mate.
Arsene Wenger says it will take 90 points to win the league this season. We already have sixty so it looks like we're in good shape.
This is quite funny, have a look.
There's really nothing else to talk about today. No match till next Monday against Blackburn, who i hate by the way. Till tomorrow then.
