Good morning Grovers!
How was your weekend? Mine was great… I stayed in and watched the rain during Saturday and Sunday (Not the whole time)… it was depressing. Now it is Monday, the weather gods are having a right old laugh at my expense! What a great day! I do love the sun!
It feels like it could be a good day for Arsenal to buy a player, are you feeling that vibe?
I think the whole Samir Nasri thing has got a bit out of hand over the last few days. I’ve read his agent say he may go, Sammy says he may go and now I am reading he completed a medical yesterday and he may sign in the next 10 days!
People are either getting fed some bullshit of the highest proportion or Wenger is losing his touch on the transfer secrecy front.
Nasri looks a great player, but before people get too carried away please remember that he is relatively untested on the European stage and plenty of players with big reputations have come over to England and flopped sensationally (Cisse, Guivarch, Le Tallec, Pongolle, Cygan, Malouda).
There is not much else going on today, so it seems a good time to have a gloat up.
Matty ‘I am so hard done by’ Flamini, who just moved to Milan will not grace the Champions league until August 2009 at the earliest. Milan managed to finish 5th behind Fiorentina putting them out of the Champions League.
So, if you want to see Flamini play in London this year… it will more than likely be at Shite Hart Lane. I will be sure to write him a post card from the Champions League final next year… ‘Wish you were here Matty Boy!’.
Ha fucking Ha. The grass does appear to always be browner when you leave the mighty Arsenal!
Speaking of Italy, Roma superstar Aquilani is rumoured to be in talks over a £23million move to Arsenal. What do you think? I’ve seen him twice. Would Arsene spend £37 million on 2 creative players? Someone’s agent is telling porkies!
Finally, Geoff is in New York, so if anyone fancies meeting him up for a beer drop him an e-mail. He needs an Arsenal fix and I don’t think he is having much luck with his wireless over there!
Have a great day Grovers!
