Man Citeh – Arsenal: Match Preview

Guten Morgen everyone, its been a long week and i’m glad there’s a match on the telly for once. Will be heading to the Liz (local Gooners pub) tonight for the early kickoff. With Liverpool failing to score at Upton Park and seemingly out of the title race, the Big Three will be fighting hard for points for week 25 of the BPL.

Injury news: We’re dropping like flies(well, not really, we’re awesome, flies aren’t). Almunia won’t be participating tonight due to a boo-boo on his thumb, Gilberto has a stiff back, Super Tom is still out, Johan Djourou still can’t spank his monkey, Denilson spending some quiet time with Gary Lewin and Robin van Persie not rushed back after his quick meditation in the hidden mountains of Oostertag, Le Boss says he has only 14 (outfield) players for the game at the City of Manchester Stadium.

Steve-o’s Probable Squad of 16(or 15)

Jens Lehmann
Wookash Fabianski
Gael Clichy
Bacary Sagna
Justin Hoyte
Willie Gallas
Phil Senderos
Abou Diaby
Cesc Fabregas
Mathieu Flamini (sign damn it)
Alexander Hleb
Theo Walcott
Emmanuel Adebayor
Eduardo (F.O.S.C)
Nicklas Bendtner
Nacer Barazite

I was struggling with final name. If Kieran Gibbs and Mark Randall weren’t out on loan, it would have been either one of them surely. So Nacer gets my call. The starting 11 would be unchanged from the last fixture so it should more or less look like this…

What do you think? What do i think? We are still very strong, Cesc is building up his momentum back to his form, Matty’s (sign, FFS) goal on Tuesday should still sting on his right boot a little, Diaby could still be having a good hangover after signing a new deal, Clichy(bless him) should be psyched up after getting his first international call up and Lehmann should be happy to be in goal for a league match again. So…we should be in for quite a match because Citeh has been very consistent at home. But i believe after our little General’s war speech in midweek, the lads are geared up, full battle order and everything to break the blue’s resistance. My prediction? Citeh 0 – 2 Arsenal. Diaby and Eduardo to grab the goals.

Hope to hear you guys singing loudly from either the stadium(come on away Gooners!) or in the Liz. The lads need all the help they can get! Thanks for reading!

“Du du du du, Du du du du, Eyyyyyyyyyy-Duardo!”


Good ‘morrow.
