The Seasiders come to town

Finally it's here the first home game of the season
for most people this is when the season starts proper
that familiar journey to highbury the grove

Lots going on before the start apparently fireworks and all that jazz
elvis has also left the building or has just been moved
And if i've been informed correctly
Fat boy slims "Right here right now" is back as the walk out
not my fav but is an improvement.

So who we got blackpool
what have they got apart from the entertaining ian holloway
 "I love Blackpool. We're very similar. We both look better in the dark." 
Well harewood will test the offside trap.
they can pass a bit
i hope they try too against us
cos then we'll thrash them.

They beat wigan away last week
i did catch the game as i was in
wigan were awful
kirkland had a mare

good news
cesc, rvp, song and djourou all in the squad
interesting who wenger pairs with tv tho
will he rush djourou hamstring or put song who's short?

Squad is: Almunia, Fabianski, Sagna, Vermaelen, Djourou, Clichy, Song, Wilshere, Diaby, Arshavin, Walcott, Chamakh, Van Persie, Fabregas, Vela, Gibbs, Eboue, Rosicky.

would hope to see bit more of RVP
hopefully he can give us a half or even more.
Same with cesc.
'sure there both chomping at the bit to get on and open their accounts

The Stats attack

last meeting was a 3-1 win in the cup '99

how we go v promoted teams in last 38 games

70% win 17% draw 13 % lose

2.43 Goals for

1 goal against

when Gibbs is the team against promoted teams we score 3.67 goals
and with arshavin 3 goals

when rosicky and djourou play we only conceded ~0.5 goals.

So if wenger does use the the stat tools we could predict these four to start.
lots of people reckon we should drop arshavin but still think he was tired for anfield.

right that your lot

RSD out

eyes right...
