Looking back to Alkmaar and ahead to Wolves

35 comments November 6th, 2009

Hello ladies and gentlemen. This is what I will classify as a speed blog.  I have about ten minutes to get this out then I’ve got to get on to a work enagagement.

I didn’t see the entirety of the Alkmaar game but by all accounts it was a cracking performance.  The goals were stunning, and having Nasri join Arshavin, Fabregas and Van Persie for the first time this season obviously galvanised our attacking force.  I was particularly pleased to see the Frenchman on the score-sheet – although he faded in the latter part of last season, he still racked up a decent goal tally, and obviously has an eye for the back of the net.

A lot of the talk was about Arshavin, who provided three assists, but for me the stand-out performance looked to have been from Cesc Fabregas, whose two goals took his total for the season to eight in fourteen appearances.  To say the 4-3-3 suits him would be an understatement.

Wolves away at the weekend will be a test for this side, who have excelled at home but had the occasional blip on the road.  A quick scan of NewsNow yielded a headline which suggested Mick McCarthy wants his boys to attack.  I’m sure Arsene Wenger’s response would be, “Feel free”.  I’m not convinced by any of their forwards, but I am absolutely certain of our ability to do damage on the break.

As I’m sure you all know, Stan Kroenke has bought enough shares that he now sits at the 29.9% precipice.  His steady accumulation of shares has a bit like one of those slot machines you get at arcades where you keep inserting 2ps, each time expecting the next one to be the catalyst to all the coins tumbling down, whilst instead they just keep piling up, making the situation ever more frustratingly precarious.

Kroenke Sports Enterprises will, I’m sure, one day own most (if not all) of Arsenal Football Club.  I don’t, however, expect that to happen in the immediate future.
