So here we are, the long footballess summer is over and today we can celebrate the start of a new season.
The wholesale changes haven’t happened yet only Ade and Toure gone and Vermaelen in. Jack Wilshire was fabulous in pre-season and a lot of supporters are hoping to see him given more time. I have to say that this time last year many of us had already seen Wilshire being fabulous and were disappointed that although he was given a 1st team squad number he didn’t actually feature too much after we went out of the Carling Cup. I hope the boss is going to use him at the start of some games instead of expecting him to change a game by coming off the bench – too much pressure for someone so young in my mind.
My hopes for the season ahead are more goals from Nikki – I want him to fill his boots, Arsh to carry on where he left off, Cesc to find his form, Theo to be more creative, Robin to stay injury free and be the new dutch master, Dudu to go from strength to strength, whoever plays alongside Cesc to be solid and for the DEFENDERS TO DEFEND……….not too much to ask.
Oh, and for all our injured players to return swiftly and for our treatment room to gather dust.
Enjoy the game today, lets show all the doubters that WE ARE THE ARSENAL – 3 points please.
