Ha, ha April Fool suckers!
Er, no actually it wasn't, yes it's true Arsene Wenger has unbelievably let Jeremy Aliadiere back in and he played for the reserves the other day, and shock horror, didn't get injured.
Now I understand he stupidly didn't sign a much needed keeper this season and he unfortunately lost all his boys, so signing old boy Jens Lehmann although bizarre, necessary as he is still better than the clown that is Almunia, I also understand him letting his mates train at our place like Beckham, Pires and Henry, but to resign a player, that Middlesbrough and West Ham rejected 5 years after we luckily sold him is whackier that doing club level's recorded message.
If this doesn't prove our manager has passed his sell by date nothing ever will and we are surely doomed, I mean we have 18 players out on loan, 55 players to choose from, the fourth biggest wage bill in the English Premier league and we can't find or recall one, how can he justify playing Aliadiere in the reserves, if at 27 Aliadiere is finally at the right age then Wenger was at fault for playing him in our squad as a teenager, if Aliadiere is good enough to be a stop gap in our squad then why have we got 18 players out on loan?
It is the strangest decision that Wenger has made since Bischoff, and that really was the strangest decision since Silvestre and that was the strangest decision since Shabaan and that was the dumbest decision since Stepanovs.
Anyway needless to say the bit that was an April fools joke was the bit about spending all that money, he needs our transfer fund to get Denilson, Fabianski, Eboue and Diaby to sign long term and much improved contracts.
