So we are told that Arsenal are going to pay for the travel fares of the Bolton fans for the cancellation debacle, good, so they should, what about all the Gooners that also made their way to the ground, unless the lucky ones me included are local, what about all the Arsenal fans that travel from around the world?
This is another example of how out of touch the powers that be are, that they think we all live in Islington.
Onto our 35 year old ex Highbury legend Patrick Vieira, he won't be coming and that's a shame, but the signs are we will be getting another 35 year old legend (ex-Invincible) in Sol Campbell, Wenger has been impressed with his training and if we can get shot of Senderos it could well happen, I for one don't have a problem there, he is a solid back up and offers far more that fishead.
It turns out that Traore won't qualify under the international games rule, why? Well because he hasn't played any! However, he could qualify under the exceptional talent one, after all, we have done that before haven't we!
Next up Everton, I won't arrange to meet anyone, in case Arsenal cancel the game at 10am just in case we have a frosty day, however, if it does go ahead, same time, same place Grovers!
There still persist the rumours over Carlton Cole and even Scott Parker, I like Parker, but like Cole, he does appear to be a Theo (crock) unlike Cole and Theo, I think he will always be a crock, so I can't see that happening, Cole though may well, and again, I don't have a problem with that. Mauro Zarate has now entered the mix but that is a complete load of toot, one good game for Birmingham, a spell at Lazio, and suddenly he's worth £35mil, perleaaase!
Dzeko, I would have in a heartbeat but Gazidas has said we won't spend big, so I guess that rules that out. He says we will only buy if we can find the right type of player, well Ivan, if we can't find a decent striker out there that would do a great job for us, either you need to go, or your scouting network does.
We lost Adebayor, Robin Van Persie, Theo Walcott and Nikki Bedntner since August, if you don't think we desperately need a front man, I give up. Even if Nikki comes back soon, he may break again, why? Well because Cesc, Rosicky and Theo all have so why would he be any different? And to be honest, he's not the answer yet, he needs a few more seasons, then I have no doubt he will be a great, but not yet.
Traore (6'8" version) seems to be going up in everyones estimation, but until yesterday, no one had heard of him, so why aren't there others out there that could do a job that we equally haven't heard of?
Cahill would be another centreback we could get, but if Wenger rates this kid from Cardiff, that won't happen, however, if we just sign a couple of pearlers in the window I believe the whole squad would get the lift it needs to push on, much like it did when we signed Vermaelen and Arshavin, remember, two ready mades!
Come on Arsenal, get the cheque book out and do it quickly.
We should beat Everton tomorrow, we have to beat Everton tomorrow, I feel the others will continue to drop points this month, and we are entering the toughest part of our season, after that it gets easier, so nail the points on early and we are in pole position, sign a couple of players that will make a difference. If we get injuries to the fragile Eduardo we are in big trouble and right now we have no one we can bring on from the bench.
If we aren't going to bring Simpson back then sell him, what's the point in keeping him at QPR if when desperate for forwards we don't recall him, other than the fact he has no future, and if that's the case, sell him and buy Moses.
Have a great day today grovers, I hope to see some of you tomorrow, but then that's up to Arsenal, isn't it!
