A game worth watching

Yup, a long time since I posted. I plead the Job Amendment; it’s been hectic and I was too tired to do anything but play games and surf. With a long weekend and a Monday holiday ‘coz of Gudi Padwa, I can now get down to some soccer blogging finally.

Today’s matchup is Arsenal vs Everton. I like Everton’s play and feel that it’s gonna be a good match, prediction for a Arsenal win, 3-2. We can’t afford to let up here and Wenger will be looking to make this one count. Chelsea and Man U march on towards the Premiership and if we want to secure second we’ll need to be at our best every match from here on out. We’re currently in third , but Liverpool will definitely switch with us when they beat Aston Villa tonight. Of course our subsequent win should catapult us right back.

The reason I’m so optimistic is because Rosicky and Toure are coming back. Henry’s being out for the season is no doubt a big blow, but van Persie’s progress is encouraging, and with Rosicky in the box and Toure at back, I’m sure both offense and defense will benefit. Gilberto Silva should be moved up to midfield where he’ll be more effective. Baptista will be surely watched on out to see if he can offer any last-gasp miracles, saving which he won’t be at Arsenal next season as sure as little green apples.

As for our midweek game against Villa, I wasn’t too pleased with how it came about: surely one of the easiest goals in history. Diaby had just to do a touch on the through ball by Baptista for it to wrongfoot the keeper. Baptista must’ve been wishing he should’ve been on the wing there; he badly needs the goals. Anyways, it’s the win that counts and I wouldn’t mind trading in some of the beautiful-flowery-losing-football for some ugly wins. I badly want van Persie back in the box and Adebayor doing his runs. Baptista just doesn’t cut it for me; he looks lost out there.

Well that’s all the Arsenalysis I have today…more tomorrow on the Everton and Arsenal match. It kicks off on ESPN at 9.25 PM IST. Golspeed!

random post-post gripe: Why can’t I SMS ESPN the final scores for their game contests? I’m composing everything correctly yet it refuses to be sent; ordinary messages go through but 3776 seems to be guarded like Fort Knox. I’ve been right more than 3 times now; that too predictions made before kickoff! Am not happy 😦
