Good Times for Arsenal

Report: Egypt vs Cameroon - African Nations Cup - ESPN Soccernet

Everyone who watched Arsenal's makeshift attempts to stop mediocre opposition with their mix-and-match holding midfielders (Denilson, Diaby, and Eastmond) will be left with no doubt that today's result in the ANC provides a huge lift to Arsenal's title hopes.  The return of Song to their midfield will improve things all over the park.  Denilson will be able to move farther up the field and combine with Diaby to supplement Cesc as a creative force in midfield.  Denilson moving up will also push someone like Theo Walcott (who just isn't ready for the big stage) into a reserve role rather than a critical one.

It will be interesting to see how things go this week against Villa (not sure if Song will be back in time for that one) but with ManYoo, Chelsea, and Liverpool next up on the Premier League schedule they'll need Song as the anchor.

In other ACN news, the Ivory Coast's shocking loss to Algeria means that Drogba and Kalou will be back for Chelsea's two match week next week as well.  The major players still gone for next week will be Yebda, Belhadj, Mikel, Yakubu, Yobo, and Essien.
