I have said for some time now that Ade will be an Arsenal player next season but last night I had a doubt, that doubt was the £24 million bid from Barcelona, if it’s true. I think Ade’s head could be turned and with the emergence of Villa as a world class star and Robin hitting form, I could see Arsene thinking, could this be the dream ticket?
I think it could be, and it would make Cesc happy, and a happy cesc means a long term Cesc, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see something happening there.
I know he dashed our hopes yesterday with the ‘Kompany isn’t coming’ bit, and ‘I’m happy with my shit defence’ but I think there is a sting in the tail of his signings this season, and I think it will be of Bergkampesque proportions.
I want Ade to stay, but I would like to see Villa and Robin together, I think they would be awesome and better than Torres and Villa, and probably better than Ade and Robin.
There may also be some Ribery for Hleb action but we’ll have to wait and see, or maybe Podolski for Hleb, who knows?
After seeing Benzema and all the other transfer hopefuls, I’m glad we’re not going after them, I think what we have is better, I really do and if Barazite can step up, maybe that’s our winger, Theo and Vela can that’s for sure.
Defence still worries me, Gallas is on his way down, Phil, love him as I do, always has that screw up in him and that will cost us, I think Wenger has to admit he was wrong and move on, bring in Richards, but he won’t so I don’t know why I said it, sorry.
I have to say the only players that have really impressed me at the Euros have been our own, plus Buffon and Villa, the German centerbacks I’ve been championing didn’t do much, not that it matters as were not signing anyone there, so again, sorry I brought it up.
Expect Nasri in an Arsenal shirt this week and before anyone says why? he didn’t feature for France, remember nor did Clichy, Flamini or Sagna (I know he was injured) so that means nothing, I expect him (Nasri) to be a big star next season.
Not a lot to say until the next recruit comes bounding through the door. Have a great day today and enjoy the Cesc and Villa show (sponsored by Nike) later today.
