    I have a feeling we'll be seeing Ramsey out on the wing again... as we've seen during almost every match against the 'big teams' lately.

    We always seem to get up for the matches against City, for some reason.

    It reminds me of how Blackburn, back in the Fat Sam days, would inexplicably play well against Arsenal.

    2-1 to le arse which leads to the inevitable "See? I told you we don't need to buy anyone..." from Arsene.

    You may be right, but since he was good today and was our best player the last time we played City, I welcome it.

    It'd be cool if learns to shoot when he's directly on goal and not trip over himself in the box, though. :p

    But they have depth these wankers. Yaya is the only CM they have no replacement for.

    No Nasri, Yaya, Balo, Kun, but Dzeko and Tevez are no slouches either. Need a stellar defensive performance.

    What makes them tough is their late goals when yaya moves higher and they add a fresh dzeko or tevez to the punch. No yaya nor kun gives me hope. Tevez is an animal. Has anybody done a chromosome count on that guy?
    News item of the day "Tevez gives Balotelli some advice".

    My only hope is that we seem to be City's bogey team. There is no tangible reason why I think we should win, but against City, we have a shot.

    Put Kos in for the BFG. With Mario and Yaya out, they have little height in attack but they do have speed.

    Instead of Kos, we see how they do with a Coq in their faces. Two terriers (Jack and Coq) chasing their mids all game and their defenders exhausted from flailing after Santi and Theo, we hit them with a triple sub of Giroud, Pods and the Ox.

    4-1 simple as.

    Did Rosicky kill Wenger's dog or something?! I have no idea how Ramsey starts over him, especially on the wing.

    No more Ramsey on the wing please. He needs to stop that failed experiment. NOW. Hell, no Ramsey on the squad in the near future please.

    THANK YOU for using the right name!

    I so completly detest the trend toward stadium naming rights, and how the announcers ablige turning a team's home into giant advertisement.

    As for this little match at the Grove, I really have no clue as to how it will go. We seem to be in a wee bit of inconsistency of late.

    But one thing's for sure. If we're going to maintain our hope of winning, the players have to REALLY WANT IT BAD. We shall see.

    Just win. I dont' care who plays I just really hope the guys stand up. We're playing home against a team we've been giving players away too (not that I miss any of them) but I just want to kill them. 2-1 to the good.

    the Sheikh will probably buy all the tickets and distribute in the council houses as early Easter presents.
