There’s a football match today and although it has little significance to the upcoming season, we like a pre-match on Arsenal Arsenal so here goes ……..
I know absolutely nothing about the opposition but I do expect that we’ll see lots of different Arsenal players during this game as Arsène makes the most of giving a run out to as many as he can.
The game is on at a ridiculous time for us in the UK – 2.45 I ask you – so I shall be hoping my sky+ works and I can settle down to watch it later.
Yesterday’s open training session seemed like a lot of fun and the supporters looked really delighted to have our boys out there playing in front of them.
Hopefully we’ll get to have good look at Giroud, Podolski is scheduled for the Nigeria trip so we won’t see him for a while. From the pictures on Arsenal.com it looks like there’s a fit Diaby in the squad and a smiling Theo.
I’m hoping to see a clean sheet or if we concede at all let it be a wondergoal rather than our mid-field being carved open. I’d really like Szczesny to have a few games not picking the ball up from the back of the net. I hope Steve Bould has been working hard on defensive awareness, I know it’s only a friendly but those supporters have come to see their heroes and they’ll have mates that support the teams from Manchester so bragging rights are going to be important to them too.
I hope the stadium in Malaysia will be rocking and we get into the groove quickly. An early goal from Giroud made by Theo will make it easier on the team to not miss Brave Sir Robin.
What would you like to see this afternoon, what are your expectations?
