This oughtn’t be about revenge

Add comment January 17th, 2009

Arsene Wenger is insistent that today’s game against Hull is not about revenge (for this, if trauma has blocked it out):

“On Saturday we just want to continue our progress, it is not about revenge at all. We feel we are on a good run so we want to be quiet and focus.”

Abou Diaby might not neccessarily agree, as arseblogger points out, but unsurprisingly I believe that Diaby is wrong and Wenger is right.  Wanting “revenge” on Hull City would make us seem somewhat pathetic, like a lion declaring a vengeful war on the mouse that bit it.  Today, as Arsene says, is about continuing our progress and, in doing so, asserting our dominance. 

One would imagine it’ll be the same team that faced Bolton, with Kolo Toure skippering the side alongside Johan Djourou, and Diaby and Denilson playing in the centre.  Robin van Persie will start with Emmanuel Adebayor, who Arsene is hoping can recapture the form of last season.

I know I said I wouldn’t be talking about Andr*i Arsh*vin until Monday, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be interested to read this.

I’m confident today.  Hull seem to be playing without the freedom and fortune their start granted them, whilst our own decline seems to have halted.  Three points might not be ‘revenge’, but it’d still do very nicely indeed.
