Arsenal Football Club signed Santi Cazorla yesterday from Malaga. He is said to be a fantastic midfielder and will bring creativity to our mid-field that has been lacking since the departure of Cesc Fabregas. We have been really aggressive this summer and have made fantastic acquisitions in the form of Podolski, Giroud and Cazorla.
I am really looking forward to seeing Cazorla and Giroud in action. This is the most excited I have been about the Arsenal team since the lows of the 8-2 defeat in the hands of Man U. The team has left for Germany where they will train and play a practice match against FC Koln. Van Persie boarded that flight so I really don’t know where we stand with his situation. I hope he will play for us next season but he cannot continue being our captain after the way he publicly questioned the manager.
The Sunderland game is exactly 10 days away and I cannot wait for that game. The lineup for our first match might look ike this:
Czsz in Goal
Carl Jenkinson(Right), Koscielny – Vermaelen (Central), Andre Santos (Left)
Arteta , Diaby, Song in midfield
Alex Ox, Van Persie(?), Walcott in front.
This will leave Cazorla , Ramsey, Gervinho, and Arshavin on bench which is pretty strong.
Looks like a pretty strong team on paper and I can’t wait to see how they perform on the ground. I wonder how different the actual line up will be to my prediction here..
