A very late, very short blog which is sure to annoy the masses but could well tickle the fancy of the unreliable and impulsive among us. You know who you are.
Arsene Wenger has explained why he rested Emmanuel Adebayor against West Ham, suggesting that he overused him last season and doesn’t want to do the same this time around. It’s a fair point and with Nicklas Bendtner showing quality and Carlos Vela and (sort of) Eduardo waiting in the wings there is absolutely no reason why Adebayor should be overused this season.
In my humble opinion he is the most important forward in our team and the fresher he is in the games that matter the better off Arsenal will be. I know a lot of people hate the fact that Adebayor takes a few chances to get a goal but his workrate and versatility make him an integral part of the team.
Adebayor, meanwhile, has been speaking about injured teammate Eduardo, stating that everyone in the team loves him and can’t wait for him to return. I would suggest that Adebayor’s sentiments are echoed by every Arsenal supporter in the world. Much as Adebayor, Bendtner, van Persie and Vela are great, Eduardo adds a different element to our attack and is undeniably the best finisher at the club.
Moving on and Theo Walcott has stated that he feels the Premiership title race is going to go right down to the wire. With Liverpool leading, Chelsea and Manchester United both possessing strong squads and the likes of Hull City and Aston Villa collecting points for fun you have to think he’ll be proven right. Let’s hope we’re on the top of the pile when it’s over. I think we have a reasonable chance.
Anyway, that’s it for today. Back to your coffees.
