Finally, the international break is over and real football is back. But wait, the FIFA qualifiers had a fine tale to tell: Ronaldo couldn’t save Portugal from not winning against low-ranked North Ireland; Sweden did a “Newcastle” over Germany, over-slept three
cubs lions lucky to draw fishy Poles in Warsaw; Bendtner couldn’t save the Danes from Italy and the Robbing Van scored for Netherlands in their win. My peak was between Spain and France.
My ecstasy knew no bound after Major Giroud stopped the tiki-taka 25 match-war rampage of the Spanish legion with his last minute shot. Oliver Giroud who scored his first premier league goal less than a fortnight ago converted a Ribery cross to silence the Spanish crowd. The last time Giroud played for the blues, he was booed. Fabregas will rue missing that penalty kick. I believe France would have scored more if more time was added because Giroud is yet to give his assist. He assists when he scores.
So the Arsenal is back to rummaging for 3 points and wins. We face Norwich at their backyard and I do hope we do a “Nigeria” or “Southampton” onto them. I expect a high scoring match with Arsenal keeping the clean sheets.
Manone should still keep his spot, same as flying jenk and the Verminator. Kos would be preferred to BFG; Gibbs hasn’t recovered from the thigh injury, so Santos should start for the first time in the league. Santi and Arteta are sure bets, but I see Coquelin starting ahead of Ramsey. Podolski, Gervinho and Giroud will complete the eleven. Arshavin and the ox will be on the bench, since Diaby, Walcott are on the tables.
Hey, I am no Arsene, so that’s just my guess for tomorrow’s match. I predict 5-0. Giroud should score. I would miss the first 45 minutes of the match for reasons best known to sheikh in church. I had a chevy yesterday, trying to log in to the hydrocarboniferos era.
