Boxing Day Blog (2D glasses may be required)

Add comment December 26th, 2009

Hello all.  Hope you had a smashing Christmas wherever you are.  My best present was to myself: a shiny new Mac which is bringing you this blog in crisp 2D.  Oh yeah, that’s right: 2D.  Suck it up.  It’s retro.

Arsenal fans might feel a bit left out today, what with us not being involved in the traditional Boxing Day fixtures.  That said, it does mean I don’t have to worry about a game, and can instead concentrate on eating copious amounts of ham.

Tomorrow’s game against Villa is certainly a big one.  Having already beaten Liverpool, United, and Chelsea this season, Martin O’Neill’s side are chasing a ‘Big Four Grand Slam’.  We’re level on points (although we have a game in hand), and certainly owe them one after they won comfortably at the Emirates last season.  The stakes are high for both teams: if they win, they’re in poll position for a Champions League spot.  If we win, we give greater credence to our title credentials.

Everyone’s Christmas wish was for a fit Cesc Fabregas, and at the moment it’s too close to call.  Armand Traore, however, will be available, which will spare us the terror of Mikael Silvestre going up against Ashley Young.

That would have been too terrifying to contemplate.
