The Gunners travel to Burnley today, which is somewhere in Lancashire a little way further north from Manchester…. a fucking long way from the Home of Football.
On team news Coquelin has apparently recovered from his knee injury quicker than expected and is being assessed. Giroud, BFG, Ramsey, Welbeck and Jenks are still side lined.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see the same team that played against Basle in mid week. After todays game it’s an International break so why not! Wenger celebrated his 20 years at the club yesterday, 1st October and is getting lots of plaudits from around the country, Sean Dyche, the Burnley manager has a lot of respect for our manager and stated that he thinks he is one of the best. Expect Burnley to use strong arm tactics and park the bus.
Burnley is a town of weavers, the industrial revolution helped it to become the Cotton Mill capital of Britain. The football club was founded in 1882 and they have played at the Turf Moor ground since 1883. Apart from Lancashire hotpot, the area is renowned for culinary delights such as; Malkin Pie…. eaten by witches at the Good Friday Great feast at the Malkin Tower. Lancashire Fish Pie and Lancashire Butter Pie…. they like their Pie in Burnley.
Not much else to say about Burnley apart from I hope we give them a thrashing. Results yesterday didn’t go in our favour and Liverpools win at Swansea pushed us down a place to 5th, Spuds and Man City play before us this afternoon so most of us will be hoping for a draw at White Shite Lane, so if we get a good win we will move to second place above Liverpool on goal difference and closing the gap on City.
I’m going with another 3-0 win for the good guys. Sanchez and Walcott getting on the scoresheet once again and perhaps another cracker from Xhaka……
