Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

What annoys me is that on September 1st last year we had Fabregas, Flamini, Gilberto, Diaby, Denilson and Diarra - six central midfielders that I would not worry in the slightest about playing.

Now we have Fabregas, Denilson and Diaby. If Diaby wakes up to his talent he could be the new Vieira, scratch that - Patrick Vieira could be the old Abou Diaby. Aaron Ramsey says he wants to play central midfield though.

We've only got two players in the first team squad older than 30. We absolutely must keep the injury prone Rosicky, van Persie and Gallas fit and get Eddie back. We have not even begun to see what Eddie is capable of.

I do not worry too much about dropping kids in here and there. We can finally play Carlos Vela in the Premier League now that his work permit is sorted out once and for all and we've got a bomb to drop on the Carling Cup named Jack Wilshire.

Our squad may be young, but we do still have two players for every position if everyone is fit. Wenger has promised a new central midfielder and I think the fans will hold him to that.

In the meantime, David Bentley, football's equivalent of Anakin Skywalker (all the potential in the world but too busy taking the quick and easy path to do it right), will soon complete his journey to the dark side when he joins Spurs.
