Gratuitous Freddie Starr reference.
The Evening Standard suggests that Arsene will go for Steady Freddie upfront, with Jose Reyes and Super Bob supporting on the wings.
I’m certainly happier with this scenario than the possibility of the torture that is watching Robert Pires try and play upfront. Out on the left, Jose will certainly give Sagnol problems, and perhaps provide better cover for the inexperienced Gael Clichy should Ashley Cole not make it.
Meanwhile, Patrick Vieira insists that “We have learnt out lessons” in Europe, and are in with a chance of winning the whole thing. You have to feel Paddy – people still doubt his commitment, even though whilst playing in freezing conditions tonight, he won’t even get to watch his beloved Real Madrid.
Anyhow, ‘Game On’ and all that.
