We will win Silva-ware for Eduardo.

Thanks to Siren for half of today’s title. Gonna be a short one today because i’m still suffering from a lot of anguish. And lots of work-related crap.

The other half of today’s title was semi-quoted from Matty Flam’s reaction to the E.D.S injury. “We wanted to win the title before but now we want to win it also for him,” said the Frenchman afterwards(the birmingspam game). “He is not going to be with us for a long time, so of course we want to win it for him.

I’m highlighting Matt’s words because i hope the rest of you Gooners saw his reaction when Eduardo was still on the floor. He walked around the pitch shaking the shoulders of his teammates who were looking distressed and quite rightly so. One time, when he walked over to Philippe Senderos, I could make out roughly these words, “Hey, HEY! Get over it! We have a match to play, come on!”.

Is there a better reason to why the likes of Arseblogger, Gunnerblog and Sggooner (myself included of course) all want Flamster to sign on his new contract?

I think his attitude is spot on, i’d like to try and focus the energy that saw a fallen comrade in battle to win the war. If you were on the battlefield, dodging bullets and all that manly stuff, and you see your best friend getting shot in the leg…do you, as a proper soldier;
1. sit down, hold your head in your hands and cry for mama
2. give a battle cry so loud and fearsome that the enemy would dread the vengeful onslaught?

I’d think i’d choose option 2 anyday and I believe Matty wanted it so badly i could see the fire burning in his eyes. Imagine if all of our players had his fire in their bellies, after recovering from the initial shock, would all give a great big battle cry ala Patrick Vieira…do you think the Birmingspam players would be scared shitless? Of course. We would be showing intent to destroy them with supreme skill and drop fucking 20 goals on their asses.

But no, we looked distraught and clearly the signal to Birmingspam is for them to continue testing our nerves with hard tackles. And that they did.

I hope you’re reading this, Fabregas, Senderos, Gallas, Adebayor, Sagna, Clichy, Bendtner, Rosicky, Hleb, Toure, Almunia and Lehmann. Follow Matty’s fire and we’ll do this for sure. For Eduardo and for the beauty of football’s sake.

Updated: Go here to see the article on people all around the world sending well-wishes to Dudu. I’ve already sent in my email and i think you should too. A certain Mark Tan has represented Singapore proudly and if you are reading this, Mark Tan, send me an email and i’ll buy you a drink. You can click on this link to mail directly.

    Agreed that perhaps Flamini makes a much better skipper than Gallas (given his position as DM as well). In fact, I was really puzzled by Wenger’s choice of skipper, given his spotty past with Chelsea. (I’m guessing it could be a French thing).

    One thing though, Gallas really stepped up during the game against us (Manchester United) at the Emirates stadium and scored the last-gasp equalizer. I felt it was that match that he started to shine as skipper. Until the Brums game, that is.

    Maybe Wenger should consider others who are not French? (Then again, Flamini is French).


    PS. I felt that leaving Gilberto out as skipper was a catalyst for his loss of form this season, last season he stepped up real well in Henry’s absence.

    Tiong: cool so we are both not deluded then
    Siren: Send send send. Flood his mail with love. That should help with recovery.
    ‘holic: for bashing in or just for taking the piss?
    Merv: Lots of things in the background that we don’t know about Gallas, to be honest. But have you heard his voice before? If i were to hear a “Come on! We can still win this!” in his guttural bellow, i’d really Come on and just go on and put in that extra 10%. Another topic another day. my brain is refusing to think up anything special.
