When Arsenal drew Monaco most fans were optimistic that for the first time in four years Arsenal could reach the quarter finals of the UEFA Champions League. No Bayern or Barcelona blocking our way this time. Arsenal had to play AS Monaco with the first leg at home. Our route to the quarter final looked straightforward but that's not how it worked out as Arsenal produced their worst performance of the season.

Whilst watching Arsenal play Leicester City on the eve of my birthday a very peculiar and unusual yet interesting thought occurred to me. It was a feeling of Deja Vu, as I remembered very specifically that at my birthday last year, I was also hoping that Arsenal would win. It did not stop there though, I was quite certain that for throughout my adult life, I have Arsenal has never lost a game around my birthday on 11 February.
With a return of 23 goals and 9 assists for Arsenal last season, the stats aren't too in favour of my opinion on Oli. However, I will go on to justify my reasoning behind why the league won't be ours next season with just Giroud upfront.
Yes, he can hold the ball up well; I'll give him that. But can he get on the end of a wonderful Mesut Ozil through ball when we need him to? No is the answer to that question, and that frustrates me. With the unnecessary criticism that Mesut was constantly receiving last season, Giroud wasn't helping on his part at all. In Madrid, Ozil was used to threading delicate but fast-paced through balls to Ronaldo and Benzema and with their ability to get on the end of them, Mesut racked up more assists in Europe than Xavi & Iniesta combined.
Cesc is everywhere. In the newspapers, on the TV and especially on f*cking Twitter. Now, everybody is entitled to their opinion and I respect that so I've decided to subject you to mine.
I f*cking love Cesc Fabregas. Forget Henry, Bergkamp, Vieira, Pires, whoever. Cesc is the ultimate. True he ruined the 'legend' status by leaving but I absolutely adored him. The silky swagger with which he glided around the pitch, the impossible through balls and that beautiful mullet that bobbed up and down. Even his name is exquisite - Francesc Fabregas- go on say it (I know you f*cking want to). He was my favourite player of all time and yes I must admit I still go weak-kneed every time I see him grace a football pitch. But do I want him? F*ck no...
