Manchester City vs Arsenal: It's time for PAYBACK

Flashback to September 12, 2009 and one of the most sickening moments for an Arsenal fan. The sight of Bloodybayor running the length of the field to celebrate his goal in front of the Arsenal fans was just purely sickening. Really, I felt so bad after watching the match that I nearly gave up my dinner.

Today we have the chance to make amends. Although I thought he would not be playing but it seems that the greedy Togolese have snatched a place in the starting line-up for tomorrow’s match. As far as I am concerned, this is bloody good news for Arsenal. With him in Manchester City’s line-up, our chances of winning have improved dramatically.

Why you ask? The answer is very simple. With him in the team, it takes away one spot from a more talented player from the wealth of City players to choose from. Either Silva or Johnson or Milner will have to make way for him. If Mancini thinks that scoring three goals against third rated opponents would give him a boost against the Gunners, I thank him for that. I want the chance for the team to really pour salt into his wound when we beat him at Eastlands.

Frankly I don’t think there is a more hated person on the Arsenal’s supporters’ lists than him. It is good riddance that we got rid of him given his performances for his team since joining them. He wouldn’t care much because he is getting £125,000 every week for strutting on the field. We certainly do not need such a player in our squad.

Chamakh has shown us what a target man should be. Powerful in the air and pressuring from the front, things which you don’t see BloodyBayor doing. Also at least our new striker doesn’t need 10 chances to score 1 goal.

I have a good feeling about tomorrow’s game. The Manchester City team now has a more European feel to it. With players like Tevez, Silva and Toure, they play a more open passing game which suits the Arsenal game plan. We have always been more successful against European type teams that British type game plans, which undoubtedly Mark Hughes version of Manchester City was last year.

So Gunners, please do me a favour and repay the man from Togo for the agony he caused us last year.
