    Podolski & London Colney team

    It was interesting to note that Barca have put in a complaint about the state of the pitch the other night, claiming some of their players were slipping all over the place and large chunks of turf were coming away. Makes me wonder why AW didn't do the same, after our game there. Doctoring their pitch slows the other fitter, younger, passing sides down perhaps, which would make the difference for them.

    • Just to say I wasone of those that said Wenger should have left a season after Henry did, because he would have left with the foundations of an even greater club for the next manager, but he didn't listen. I understand that he found the great team when he first started but he already had a great team to start with and the main reason why Henry left was because he wanted to have a new challenge not because of greed or money, because we could give that and Wenger let him go because the other players were becoming dependent on the one man, which has become a curse.
      Afterwards it was I think Adebayor, then Fabregas, Fabregas and Nasri and now RVP. One player carries the team every year, which is how I knew we would always come in the top 4. Sadly ever since Walcott gained form, RVP has stopped scoring and its probably why we haven't won the last couple of matches by much more. All the Arsenal fans know we have some injury prone players otherwise we could have easily been 1st.
      RVP will not leave untill the club becomes fixed, otherwise the only club he could truly fit into is Real Madrid or Bayern.

      • here we go again, the old injuries cost us excuse. Well injuries haven`t stopped United from topping the table. For most of the season they have been without 2 of their most influential players, Vidic and Fletcher and at one point they had so many defenders out injured that Carrick had to play at centre half and Valenica had to play as a fullback. In January they had only 2 fit central midfield players, Carrick and the inexperienced Pogba, so they had to bring Scholes out of retirement. Other key players missing for long periods included Valencia, Nani (who is still out), Young and Hernandez. But guess what, instead of using injuries as an excuse for failure the players who had to cover for the absentees rose to the challenge and concentrated on keeping United on City`s coat tails.
