Emile Cescy? Harsh...

The International Football Dull-fest plunders into it's final stages and not a day too soon, all eyes are turning to Southampton and the chance to continue the good feeling around the club after the comprehensive win at Liverpool. Feel a bit sorry for Olivier Giroud who is having to explain himself after 3 games without a goal, personally think Giroud's movement and willingness to show for the ball gives Arsenal a little extra and when you consider how long it took Henry and Bergkamp to open their account (both against Southampton), there is no need to worry about Giroud.

Little birdie tells me that a well known football podcast this week has been discussing the problems that Cesc Fabregas seems to be suffering at Barcelona, left out the starting XI, poor in front of goal which has led the show to proclaim him "Emile Cescy" which is a little harsh. Fabregas seems to be always to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, broke into the Arsenal team in the last season they won a trophy, only to leave for Barcelona in their first year without a La Liga/Champions League trophy for a while, settling for a Copa Del Ray and the trinkets attached with winning the Champions League the previous year. Add onto that the fact that his boyhood hero who lured him to FCB left after one season and Cesc must be thinking he is some kind of football Jonah, but class will always out. Always.

The most used Klaxon in football, the "Abou Diaby Injury" Klaxon has been pressed again but it seems the "muscular pains" that kept Olivier Giroud out last week for France is going to keep Diaby out tonight, I understand It's not anything to be alarmed about but anything to do with Diaby and Strains is alarming, especially after his performance at Anfield.

Here's to the end of the International Break

Till tomorrow
