Welcome back Arsenal
July 17, 2010
Great to be looking forward to an Arsenal game again, even if it is the annual game on the second weekend of July, against Barnet.
Really looking forward to seeing 4 players in particular.
The new boys Kos and Chamakh, plus Djourou and Nordtveit.
If the expected, and very much-needed, 2nd defensive signing of the Summer does not materialise within the next few weeks, we are left to rely on one or both of the aforementioned young centre backs being highly used this coming season.
There is not a chance in hell of Vermy and Kos lasting the season without injury or suspension.
Djourou has been planted in to play right-back today by some bloggers… I see no value in this.
He must get his 45 minutes at the heart of the defence.
I rate him and believe he can become an important player, who knows, Kos may need some time to settle in and we could see Vermy and Johan start against Liverpool next month.
Nordtveit played for Nurnberg last season in a holding midfield role, we have Song and Eastmond in the squad for that role, so again it will be good to see the lad given 45 minutes at centre back.
I love the composition of the current squad, the likes of JET, Wilshere and Eastmond will have come on bundles over the last season, surely Jack will bust through in a big way this year?
Great to have proper football back… World Cup?
