they’re back

finally, after weeks of absence key players such as Cesc, Song, Walcott are finally making their comeback on tomorrow’s match. Persie who suffered knee problem after his international duty with Holland, is now being passed fit to feature against Rovers tomorrow. I think the biggest news will be Song availability. though it may have felt a bit late, his presence in the midfield would be crucial for us to win matches. coincide with his return, Denilson is down with an injury. surprise, no?. he may have sacrificed himself for the sake of the whole team. do I sound crazy to you?. nothing is impossible you know. it is better to leave the game as an injured player rather than being left out cold. okay, it is a joke. please stop cursing.

lets move on to our topic. since the absence of these key players, we have been playing rather poorly. only one win against low side Leyton Orient cheers up our fixture result for the month of March. another solid evidence we are struggling to win matches without these men. however, it is a new month, so I have high hopes Arsenal players to be able to focus on remaining matches and win them all. it is the only way to stop man utd winning league title. we can no longer tolerate a draw and even more, a defeat. only a win and no less than that. each club we will go against know this perfectly and will try to frustrate us by going all out in the first half and try to score a goal. knowing Arsenal well, I know this plan could be a jackpot. we are losing Djourou for the rest of the season and can only count on nerve-jittery Squillaci. you understand what  I mean.

I know we don’t have our best CB and GK available for us but I must support them all. they are Arsenal players after all and they will do everything to get those critics behind them and come out as winners. I have no confidence on our current no. 1 nor do I have a vote to our back up CB but I have no options but to keep cheering their names whenever they are mentioned. we can’t do anything, so keep our head up and keep believing.

as names of injured players have been announced, I can do a little bit of guessing game who will get the nod to start on Saturday. back four remains the same with Almunia standing between the post and both Clichy and Sagna will be our full backs. Squillaci and Koscielny completes the missing puzzle at the back. and with Song comes back from knee injury, he will surely retain his place and play alongside Wilshere once more. Cesc resumes his duty as attacking midfielder with both Nasri and Arshavin play as wingers. Persie declared fit to start and there’s no doubt he will be chosen ahead of Bendtner and Chamakh. unfortunately, Ramsey will most likely to miss the match tomorrow due to groin injury. Le Boss did not mention on the length of his injury during his pre-match interview, so I don’t have any idea whether he will play again this season. if it’s minor, then he is free to join the squad in the next game. let’s wait on this, okay?.

anyone dares to predict score line for tomorrow?. I have never been a fan of match prediction but I do this for the sake of this blog. Blackburn is a tough nut so I won’t be considering a clean sheet though I want it so bad. it’s 1-3 for us. and if we play lousily, then 2-3 for Arsenal.

till later Gooners…
