    Its over and finished!!!!!

    What you say about width is true, and without Cesc's laser guided passes, we'd have nothing much to offer going forward.
    But, lest we forget, the three/four players who might give us that additional width and/or attacking option going forward are all crocked -
    Walcott will be back in Feb, Eduardo in the New Year, and Nasri perhaps next weekend. Rosicky is the one I'm truly worried about - he hasn't kicked a ball in nearly a year, and shows no sign of being close to a return. Apart from the rustiness he will have - you have to ask yourself, will he ever be the same player again, or indeed will he ever play again.
    I think AW went into this season thinking that he could count on Rosicky. He bought him for a reason, and he does give us that something extra going forward. I don't think he can count on him any longer, so the cheque book should be out in January, with an eye to an experienced replacement.
