A Beautiful Day to be an Arsenal Fan 13 February, 2008Posted by lasagnechef in Arsenal News.
If like me you’re enjoying the great British weather we’re getting at the moment you’ll have an especially big smile across y our face today. Top of the league and loving it. I don’t know what it is, it’s such a nice feeling when the team you support are top of the league. Such a simple thing like that makes me smile.
However, at the same time, the nerves are going to start to kick in soon and that’s the worst part. The pure desperation and hope of going all the way this year is going to drive me insane. Sleepless nights and all that, just for the simple matter of us being in 1st place.
I’m off to the park to play a game of footy with my mates in a bit so I’m going to keep this post quite brief; there’s not much to cover anyway to be honest.
There are a couple of stories about Emmanuel Adebayor. The first is a rather nice one about how Ade gets texts from Thierry In Barcelona wishing him good luck. He says Henry really believes in him and follows how he’s doing in the league. I don’t know any Gooner that holds anything against Thierry, and if I ever met one I’d ask them why. He was a fantastic servant to the club and it’s nice to hear that he still keeps in touch with the players.
Adebayor’s also been talking about his Golden Boot rival Cristiano Ronaldo. He says he’s got a lot of respect for him and thinks he’s an amazing player, however the Golden Boot means nothing to him in comparison with winning the league. Ade says he’s always dreamed of being the top scorer but it’ll mean nothing if Arsenal don’t come away with the trophies. He’s right, but his goals are helping us on our way, so keep knocking them in mate!
Lastly, a bit of good news on the injury front. Rosicky, Toure and Eboue could all be back for the weekend which is great news. However I don’t think we’ll be fielding a full strength side. I imagine we’ll be seeing Lehmann, Hoyte, Eboue and Bendtner + others but we’ll think about that game later in the week.
Right I’m off now, have a nice Wednesday. Thanks for reading.
