Who on earth that lives in Islington would choose a second home in the suburbs of London?
Looks like The Arsenal have. Here we go again, and I feel it may become a familiar journey.
I cannot tell you how well prepared our opponents, Manchester City, are and how they stand in terms of injuries, fitness, or pre-season form, so I’ll briefly focus on The Arsenal.
Another week in the fitness boot camp should see the side a little sharper than during last Sunday’s game. I don’t know whether our Germans will be ready, but I doubt it, which will leave an insecure defence. I say insecure, not because of the quality of the players on the field today, but rather, because more than anywhere else, it’s an understanding between them that matters, and that takes time.
Up front, the question is where does Alexis play. Personally, I think we looked much sharper with The Chilean in the middle. So I’d love to see him flanked by pace, which means Joel and The Ox.
With Arteta likely to team up with Ramsey, that would leave Santi best suited to fill the void left by the recovering Mesut.
I do, however, see a strong case for playing Mozart, and that would mean leaving out Joel.
Anyway, it would be lovely to get a win and a trophy ahead of the real battle next weekend, but equally important, for Arsène to reveal more about his thinking.
A great season lies ahead, and how exciting to have genuine options for a pre-match chat down the boozer.
