Lots of speculation today in the world of Arsenal. However, most of it is just that—speculation—and I prefer not to speculate about speculatory things. Who is resigning with the club, who is signing on a free transfer, who we are going to buy, who Arshavin is going to sue, etc. etc.
Today I prefer to talk about the very real prospect of Tottenham Hotspur finishing above us.
Isn't it disgraceful that about a month ago if we had beat them at White Hart Lane we would have been guaranteed to finish above them in the league.
One win in eight games has resulted in us needing to get a result against Fulham to guarantee finishing ahead of them, and if we only draw Fulham, we will only finish ahead on goal difference.
I like Harry Redknapp, I think he knows his football if but a bit cavalier in the transfer market, I think he gives good interviews if but a bit of a lad down at the pub, and I think he thinks his son is a twat if but...no his son is just a twat.
However, as much as I like him (and I'm pretty sure I heard he was an Arsenal fan once, although with his ties to West Ham and well pretty much every other club in the country I'm not sure what to believe) I still think the club he manages are a pathetic bunch of wasters.
I would be sick to my stomach (more so than I was yesterday—apologies for no blog) if he somehow managed to steer that White Shit Ship ahead of us in the league standings come the 90th minute of fixture 38.
I'm scared. I have been since we lost to Wigan. I knew Blackburn would be tough. I knew the confidence had been rocked pretty much since I went to the Camp Nou and saw Barcelona pick us apart. I knew we were in for a tough couple of weeks. Despite having the EASIEST RUN IN by a country mile.
Birmingham probably didn't help. Win that game and we were ahead of United I think. After that we needed Chelsea to drop points in two games, and as we have all seen, it was simply not going to happen.
I think the lads hung their heads and didn´t realize there was a very real threat coming from behind us. Like I said. Scary stuff.
Anywáy here´s to a resounding victory over Fulham this weekend to sign off in style this season. Hopefully Burnley smoke the Spuds...For both our league position and to bring those Spuddly cunts down a couple of pegs.
Here's to United getting a win and Chelsea drawing so I can see John Terry cry. And here's to the Spuds losing to Celtic in the qualification rounds despite Defoe, Crouchy, and Bentley all diving to win penalties.
