I will probably get a lot of stick for this blog but here it goes anyway….

None of this please William

We seem to be getting linked to far too many ex Arsenal players than I would like, it looks like we will be getting William Gallas on a freebie pending a medical and to a lot of clubs this would be a bargain but to me it’s not. He is a decent defender but his attitude isn’t the best. I don’t want a player who threatens to score own goals agaisnt his own team like he done at Chelsea if he doesn’t get his own way. Its bad enough he is an ex Gooner but I don’t even think the Arsenal fans ever embraced Gallas so how the hell are the Spurs fans supposed to. Gallas has this attitude that it’s all about him, while Bassong accepts King, Dawson and Woody are all better defenders than him and quietly waits for his chance to play and when he does he gives 100% I don’t think Gallas will do this, I think he is under the impression he will be the main man at the back for us and when he discovers he isn’t he will sulk. I don’t want to see this guy put above Bassong.

We are also being linked with Hleb in a £5 million move but although he has a much better attitude that Gallas my only real concern with this one except for him also being Arsenal is that I personally think he isn’t very good. Hleb will work hard and score the odd goal but seriously who can he push out of our team?

So we have now been linked with Adebayor, Flamini, Gallas and Hleb in recent weeks, surely we can aim higher than Arsenal rejects that were either sold for being trouble makers or were not simply good enough. I don’t want to visit the Emirates to the chants of “are you Arsenal in disguise” or “you only buy arsenal rejects”. Surely there are other players out there we can get linked to other than Gooner rejects.

News just in, Edgar Davids has joined Crystal Place, Edgar served us proud and I wish him all the best at his new club

Champions League Waters

Well here we are,about to dip our toe into the untried water that is the Champions League,well nearly,they’ll be playing the now classic rework of Handel’s Zadok the Priest,so for me it’s the aforesaid Champions League.

Anyhow,Rumours are that Harry will be sticking with an attack minded formation so expect the four,four,two and not the much conversed four,five,one,although in fairness he has said that had we been playing the likes of Barcelona then he would have considered changing formation,which in all honesty I can see the reasoning behind.After all there’s’ no point opening yourself up to be slaughtered now is there,especially when your the new lad in town.

OK,back to tonight’s game,Ledley is being saved from the dreaded spectre that is astroturf,and Jenas has a slight calf tear so he will also be absent from the tie,although that seems pretty convenient considering an approach has just come in from Juventus for our Jermaine.On another note however I suppose one of the big questions is whether Harry might play Wilson in midfield to add that bit more bite,or will he stick with the more fluid style of Huddlestone and Modric?

There is also the problem of who we play upfront,after all Pav has quite a lot of experience of how this league is played,and for me he fits much neater alongside Defoe,yet I’m sure Young Boys have never faced anything like Crouch before so should he be given a go?So many questions,let’s hope Harry’s answers prove to be correct.
