Destroyer Diaby Awaits Backlash

23 comments February 11th, 2006

Arsenal and Abou Diaby meet Bolton today for the first time since his foot-breaking lunge on Ivan Campo.

Sam Allardyce seened to be in forgiving mood, saying “It was a serious tackle that caused Ivan to break a foot. But perhaps you can forgive him for his naivety, having just arrived in the Premiership”. However, it’ll be interesting to see if the Bolton players are quite as forgiving on the pitch.

Arsenal are without a whole string of stars. Sol Campbell, Ashley Cole, and Theo Walcott are all out, along with the rest of the usual suspects (ie. our entire defence). Campbell and Cole, it seems, will miss the first leg of the Madrid tie.

With Bolton favouring a physical approach, Arsene may choose to field the same side that battled to victory at Birmingham:

If not, Freddie Ljungberg or Robert Pires could come back into the side.

This is a vital match in the battle for fourth spot, and will also be my little sister’s first game at Highbury. Two reasons that a win is absolutely vital.

Come on Arsenal.
