The boss refused to be drawn on whether or not we sign someone for the anchor role in midfield, but at the same time he refused to rule out a signing and left it with ‘maybe next week’ that to me is a yes, I know who I want so get off my back.
He also said there has been interest for Justin Hoyte but no firm offers, he said ‘at the moment he is still an Arsenal player’ strange comment from Wenger for one of his players, normally it’s a ‘he’s going no-where’ retort.
so I expect him to go, maybe we should swap him for Wheater at Middlesbrough, then we have the center back option covered.
I watched the youth team again last night and learned nothing, yes they are good, but we knew that, I fail to see what he learns from players like Justin Hoyte that he didn’t already know and I fail to see what he can learn from playing them in a game like this that he wouldn’t learn in a reserve game.
Still we won the Amsterdam Cup and as it may be the only trophy we win this season, we should enjoy the moment.
I have to say that Djourou is beginning to look like an option at center back, but the YaYa rumours are getting louder again, if we were interested in him then why on earth didn’t we do something about it when we had the chance to play hard ball with Hleb, bad business again I think.
Just a point for any AKB out there that thinks that Arsene knows, in this last two days watching this tournament I’ve listened to Kenny Sansom, Alan Smith, Paul Merson and Ray Parlour on various channels and all four have said we desperately need a beast of a center back and an aggressive defensive midfielder.
They said it and they are all Arsenal legends, and one of them played under Wenger, we can’t all be wrong, so Arsene, before another season of promise goes by, buy a couple of players, you have the money, we have the need.
If you continue to keep saving money to pay off the stadium, someone will take over the club as they’ll be able to because the fans are fed up with us winning no trophies, then the new owners will immediately plunge us into debt and all your hard work would have been for nothing.
Act now why you still can, we are two players short of a quadruple!
Happy a great Sunday Grovers and please no arguing today, Sundays are special!
