Usmanov has said he may increase his share to rival reclusive American Stanley Kroenke, shares are now valued at £11.5k a pop and Balotelli disses Jack Wilshere.
What a day, so Turin, a village in Northern Italy has a newspaper, the Turin Recorder, it has an award called Golden Boys, it's for anyone under the age of 21 in Europe and guess what, an Italian won it, surprise, surprise, then the twat claims he doesn't know who Jack Wilshere is, what a tosser, no wonder no-one in Italy liked him, well no one apart from his mum and the Turin Recorder, I expect Jack will lose a bunch of sleep over that!
Usmanov has talked about buying up more shares and says his investment is safe as Arsenal are a well run club, with a great stadium and a top coach, well I agree with all that, and if the coach goes back to coaching and Usmanov and his money men start to handle the other side of the business, then great, I'll back that idea.
Niklas Bendtner is going nowhere says the coach, fine, then prove you are worth keeping son, Chamakh wasn't so great at Old Trafford so you should play against the chavs, if you do, seize your chance, we want you to be a great, we really do, the only one who's not doing it is you, some of what you showed at City will do, good luck if you're picked!
We had a situation on here yesterday where I binned someone, let me just tell you what the deal is. This is a blog where you can have an opinion, not get one, you can disagree all you like, that's what makes this blog so much fun, but you can't keep dissing the stories, that's disrespectful, Pedro and I don't take all this time to write stories to have people telling us they are rubbish, it's really that simple.
Anyone is welcome and any opinion is, but the minute a fellow Grover is slagged off that line is crossed. Someone said it's a free world, well that's true, so if people don't like what I write, they are free to blog somewhere else.
It's also very difficullt to keep writing stories when we aren't playing, we write about what is said, if our manager gives interviews to Arab TV stations that don't make any sense, then we will comment on them, much the same way that had we trounced the Mancs 10 nil, we would have been praising the manager all week, we didn't, so guess what? We didn't!
Let's move on, the next big game is the chavs, we finally have Vermaelen and Diaby back in training so with luck we'll have a full squad to pick from, then we'll be a very different team, someone suggested Djourou as a DM, I wouldn't say no to that, but I don't think it will happen.
I hope we get Ramsey back in January as I don't believe we will sell or buy, so I will suggest the team we will have to play the chavs on the 27th.
Sagna Djourou Vermaelen Clichy
Diaby Cesc Nasri
Robin Bendtner Arshavin
So I've gone for height, grit and skill, we'll find out soon enough.
Someone said we were the only team still in all four competitions, let's see if we can win a few then eh? Let be United for the festive season and see where it takes us, a win over Christmas will put us right up there and give us huge levels of confidence, lets pray for Vermaelen, we need him back, a fit and firing Diaby gets the nod over Song and Denilson for me, but if not then I would go for Jack in there.
Not a lot I can add to that save a few signings, but I can't see that happening so without risking boring some, I won't speculate any further, as for those I bin, they are all welcome back, just respect the blog and your fellow bloggers, if you can't do that, go elsewhere and join the disaffected Grovers on the other sites.
Enjoy your day and if you are having your Christmas party, be careful, drink in moderation and sensibly, and mind your language, swearing isn't big and it's not clever and we don't want you missing the Chelsea game, it could be a defining moment in our season!
