Stoke City game – the start of a special run?
Not much to report today, other than that we’re still in the race for a 17-year-old Polish midfielder and we’re rumoured to have made a bid for Edinson Cavani. Forgive me, but think our priorities are certainly wrong. We should be signing a defender and a defensive midfielder this January – none of the above.
However, I think this weekend’s Stoke City game will be the reverse of our poor form. I actually fancy us to go on to win or draw every game until the end of the season.
The return of Mesut Ozil is massive for us. I know he must be ramped up after missing three months of the season and eager to get back on the pitch.
Elsewhere, most are concerned about the fitness of our star man Alexis Sanchez. I have to agree that he needs a rest, but I don’t think the Stoke City game is the right place to rest the Chilean. Stoke City are tough opponents and we need Sanchez as Giroud’s missing due to suspension.
That’s all for now – let’s hope we get a good result this weekend
