Momentum Building Up

Now that Birmingham match is done and dusted - with 3 points in the bag, we look forwards to AZ Alkmaar who must be forging strategies to shut us out. I have a feeling lots of teams will now be thinking not of ways to score against us but of ways to shut us out. This is a good fear, a kind of fear that the Invincibles inspired in opponents who soon refused to sit-back after discovering there is nothing for them to gain by doing so. If we continue to hammer the so-called lesser teams who are content to "park the bus", others will think twice before adopting such approach.We are likely to hear from Wenger about tomorrow's match. I'm expecting the kind of performance we gave against Birmingham when we go to Holland - lots of closing down, grafted-kind-of-performance, not much of silky passing, free-flowing football.I believe the international break lag is still present in our players' legs and will take a week to weed it out. Will Mannone start again? I think so. Sagna will start ahead of Eboue as well and I see Ramsey given a run after 65 minutes of play. Fingers crossed.
