Wenger Feared Rosicky Was Done - So Did We!

Wenger Feared Rosicky Was Done - So Did We!

Arsenal kicked off their 2009 summer pre-season schedule with the annual trip to the Underhill Stadium to face Barnet in the traditional opening fixture. The game ended 2-2 but the highlight of the game was the return to action of long term absentee, Tomas Rosicky.

Rosicky hasn't kicked a ball in anger since January of 2008 after suffering what seemed to be a minor injury that ultimately kept him out for 18 months and had all Gooners wondering if we'd ever see the classy play-maker in red and white again.

After the game Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger revealed for the first time that he shared all of our concerns.

'There was a time when I was worried Tomas wouldn't play football again and he felt the same,' said Wenger.

'But he had always led a healthy and dedicated life. Mentally he's also very strong. Of course you have to ask and hope if he will ever get back to where we want him to be and the answer looks like yes.'

The re-addition of Tommy Gun to the squad adds a massive air of experience, and when paired with Cesc Fabregas and Andrey Arshavin provides one of the most creative and mouthwatering midfields that I've seen in a very long time.

our attack is mouth watering. I don't think we need to replace Ade and hopefully young Barazite will be given the chance to step up. I really hope Wenger uses every cent he has now to bring in a solid midfielder to play behind Cesc and Rosicky.

Fantastic to see him back, we have really missed having him in the side, with the departure of the off-side kid and the return of Tommy things are looking up for us. Just one or two signings more and get Gallas to extend his contract (but he will leave ona free next year) and we would be sorted!

A certain star of this blog made a remark that Rosicky would never wear an arsenal shirt again; he stated he would reveal parts of his person if he did and eat his hat. He was right last time in saying Rosicky would not play last year but does he still believe he wont play for us again???? (comment LD)

The bet was £20, and it does have to be a competitive game, but yes, it looks like I'll lose it. I hope so anyway.

£20? Damn ... that's nowhere near humiliating enough. I was hoping for some kind of nudity in a public place ..... not for any sexual reasons you understand, no matter how fine you tush is.

I don't need wagers to produce public nudity, I do have several restraining orders to prevent me doing it though.

Little Mozart is back - watch out working girls! Fingers crossed he can stay fit and score 15 goals this season!
