Hello everyone, just got back from coaching my Under 7's to victory to bring us to 3-2-2 on the season. I just saw that Chelsea beat United today so we're effectively stuck in third place this season. I think that this means we may see a lot more younger players in our remaining league games, which I will enjoy but I know there are some groups of fans that feel like it's an insult to the fans to put out a weakened side. I'd love to see what players like Nordtveit and Barazite can do though. What do you think?
Another player I've heard a lot of talk about lately is Robinho. He's an interesting one. He almost signed with us two or three years ago but ended up going to Real Madrid. Lately though he hasn't been playing much for them and there is talk of him coming to Arsenal. I think his transfer fee would be about the same as Ben Arfa's so it would be a matter of who do you think brings more to the team? I like both players but I think Robinho's technical ability and versatility makes a better option. If he wants to go to Arsenal shouldn't we consider it? Tell me what you think.
Tony Adams as you probably know is currently working with Harry Redknapp at Portsmouth and his contract is up at the end of this year. He hasn't been offered a new deal there so there is talk of him coming to help out at Arsenal. I think he could really help out our defense and hopefully Wenger can work something out to bring him in because I'd love to see him back at Arsenal.
“I always tried to lead by example [at Arsenal] and get out there and make sure they realised they were playing for the Arsenal. I tried to install in the team a kind of ‘over our dead bodies’ kind of attitude.
“I just feel that people don’t realise that the best back four win the league. The last two seasons Manchester United have had the best back four and, before that, John Terry and his men were fantastic for two years.
“We’ve kept more clean sheets at Portsmouth than Arsenal have, but I’m not going to question the great man [Wenger].
“I love the club, it was part of my life for so many years and if anyone at Arsenal wants to invite me back, I’m willing to give it a shot. I’m fully prepared and willing to do what I have to do.”
That's all I've got today, sorry it's so short but it's a busy day for me. Have a good one.
