It takes 2, baby...
Who should play upfront, if we go for a 4-4-2 formation this Sunday? We may know in days to come, but here's my take on the matter for now.
Some say it should be Robin van Persie (RvP) & King Henry, while others prefer the Adebayor & Henry formulae (they do make nice dance partners, don’t they?) Still some, a very small minority, say that the Beast Baptista should get a start.
Against Man U, I feel that RvP/Henry can do good work up front. Adebayor works hard, but lack creativity. We’ve seen RvP twist defenders inside out with his frequent darts towards goal. When it comes to set pieces, both RvP & Henry are good takers from outside the box. When was the last time you saw Adebayor take a free kick?
With RvP alongside Henry making those runs, and assisting I might add, they will give the Gunners more than a dozen ways to goal.
Full credit to Adebayor, but I feel RvP and Henry should start this one.
End of the day, The Professor will know best...
Note: Nabez...have to be in Auckland for this cruncher, arrrggh!!
Latest: RvP injured during training, so it's Ade/Henry?
Magic Word: Arsenal
