Beast To Earn His Spurs?

Beast To Earn His Spurs?

Arsene Wenger claims the best is yet to come from the Julio Baptista and revealed that the beast could feature in his first North London derby on Saturday.

We have only seen glimpses of Baptista this season as his lack of playing time means he hasn't had much time to adapt and as such he has alternated from Beast to fluffy kitten. However, as Arsene Wenger does, I believe he will become a great asset to the team with his drive, strength and determination.

'There is no basic problem with him. He has just got to adapt to the pace of the game." Said Wenger

'He has just come back from six weeks out with injury and I feel he needs to work, maybe he will play on Saturday against Tottenham."

'We have seen that before with players who came here, it always took them six months to adapt."

'I am confident he will make a big impact here.'

Wenger is saying it'll take 6 months, yet you're all pinning your hopes on him!! get a grip!!
29/11/2006 11:24:00
Where's the hope pinning BY? All I see is people excited about a new player. Much less speculative than most of the Spurs camp insistant that Berbatov will be the leagues top scorer!!

You know, it really tickles me pink - a bit in the hue of the Gunner's colours, actually - that you Arsenal fans are so vindictive about Spurs. I mean you've had it your way for so long and you really can't expect to be at the top of the tree for ever - you've had luck, some good managment and some great you have no luck, a few players and increasingly bizarre management. You really shouldn't begrudge Spurs a slice of the same! I'd like to urge all of you Gunner's fan to put your ill will aside and shout jolly hurrahs in support of Spurs when they meet the Gunners a the Emirates on Saturday. In this way mutual amity will break out and engender a pact to split the internecine strife that threatens to unhinge the solitary peace of North London. We are nieghbours are we not? What do you say, my fellow citizens?

hey spud supporter.. what u said is crap.. we have been successful doesnt mean we dnt want to be success**** anymore.. and one n one.. any of our players is better than yours.. and i mean any.. our stadium is better.. bizzare management u call it.. its just sheer bad luck that we aint scoring goals.. we create more chances in ne game than u have created all season so far.. its only a matter of taking them.. and make no mistake about it.. its going to come around soon.. and then we'll all know where arsenal belong.. right there at the top..

Oh dear Mr 'go4it_adi' you seem rather upset. But you do seem to agree with me about luck - yes, Arsenal were very lucky: you obtained Wenger when his judgement was unassailable; you purchased Henry, Vierra et al (that means: and the others!) etc. Yes, and your luck has deserted you - Vierra leaves and the heart is ripped from within the breast of your team, never to be replaced. The goals won't return, sad to say: your luck has been well and truly rubbed out. Your team is a smokey shadow blown this way and that way in the maelstrom that is the Premiership. On the other hand, I'm afraid that Wenger's judgement has eluded him all too often recently. He should have cashed in on that sorry forward who used to be the pinnacle and prime mover of the Gunner's. He should have taken Barcelona's money. Ceteris paribus, Arsenal will be beaten on Saturday. The groans will ring out around that doleful stadium and the moon will block out the sun casting a deathly shroud, most hideous, over the Emirates. Parenthetically, what does 'spud supporter' mean. I am rather vexed - is it an insult of some form?
