Whilst I have tremendous admiration for William Gallas as a football player, I think he is suspect as an athlete and a captain, why? You may ask.
Well he seems to spend more time on the treatment table than on the football pitch and by his own admission sulks about it, well didn’t we have a couple of French captains like that previously?
I still think he should have made Gilberto captain, but given his absence from the team I think I know why he didn’t. So in that case Kolo would have been my choice with Cesc as vice captain.
I can’t see Gallas being around next season as I don’t think he’ll last physically and then he’ll be into his 30’s and we all know what happens then, don’t we?
So Billy’s been miserable around the dressing room, but he’s still captain and we’re still winning so maybe I don’t know as much as Arsene Wenger does!
Moving on I hear that Chelsea will move in on £100million Kaka, is this as well as £70 million Ronaldhinio? It’s like £20 million Veloso, I don’t know where the press get these stories from, the transfer window is still two and a half months away, I think the managers must be having a right laugh.
The Lehman to City move is interesting though, with his national coach telling him to leave at the end of the year and City apparently showing interest, and us being interested in a center back …well?
In the first place, why would Lehman go to another team where he wouldn’t get first team football guaranteed? But if it were true and they were prepared to let us have Richards it would only cost us 19 million, so we could solve two problems at once and save a huge amount of money. Dream on!
Arsenal spokesman Thierry Henry tells the press we can do the double and Chelsea hater Diarra sticks the knife in about Chelsea’s style of play. Pop sensation Eduardo “Prince” Da Silva has taken time out of his hectic sell out tour to declare himself fit for Croatia this week.
In transfer gossip, Libelfootball.com have linked us with Malonga, it seems because he is French. Fabregas has a little chat with Sky Sports. Arsenal are bidding for the Uefa Cup Final in 2011, not to be in it obviously! They want to host it. We have settled up for Fran Merida, a whopping £2.3 million for the next Fabregas!
Le list appears to now be empty with Song now fit.
Flamini’s new nickname ‘Gattuso’ is very fitting with his development I say, but disappointed to hear Bendtner gobbing off again, he does have a point though and I think he should at least be given 15 minutes, remember Hartson? Wenger sold him as he said ‘you can’t leave a big man on the bench, a big man needs to play’ well by my reckoning Bendtner has 2 inches on Hartson, so by that logic…
