Wenger knows we can win the Champions League this year!
October 18, 2010
Cesc was fit for the Brum game, yet not even on the bench.
Theo was definitely fit, but rested for Tuesday night’s massive Champions League match against the very, very decent Shaktar Donestk.
I don’t think Chavski are untouchable, but there is a growing problem in the Premiership right now, United have faced it, and we faced it for a few seasons…. smaller teams terrified of giving 100% against the seemingly unbeatable champions.
Chavski don’t face the battles we face week in week out.
It’s going to be almost impossible to win the league this season.. I said almost, nothing is ever assured, Chavski aside, I can really only see us and maybe City challenge.
United are 100% finished for a few years.
Trust me, it’s all over up there.
The near 20 year Golden Era for the mancs has died. RIP.
Tuesday may see Cesc, Theo, Jack, AA23 and Nasri all take the field… our Moroccan hitman should bag another goal or two, how good his he?
I love his attitude, dives aside, the fella is impressing on a grand scale, as you can never knock a man who runs his heart out for the team, and you especially cannot knock a man who scores, creates and wins penalties as often as he does.
Key man for against Shaktar, as Nik B is clearly miles away from match fitness, at least 2 weeks, and RvP… well, you know!
So he is the only striker we have.
He is more than that, when he plays and leads our line.. we suddenly have 5 strikers on the pitch as he opens up the path for the onslaught from our attacking minded midfielders to have a go at goal.
I would like to see Diaby play the holding role with Jack and Cesc in front of him, Chamakh lead the line flanked by Rosciky and Nasri with the option of Theo or Arshavin off the bench for penetration if required.
Love big games against top quality opposition, and this lot are class.
2-1 is my prediction with Cesc and Chamakh on the scoresheet.
