Oh good evening to you all!
Sorry for the delayed-ness of this. When things went to sh*t in England, I’d post in the afternoon, over here, different beast… because you don’t get it until late.
It’s just me and you America. Just me and you.
Chelsea sold Ramires to China for £25m.
Here are my thoughts. Wouldn’t he have been good for us? I mean, doubtful they’d sell him after gifting us the god of all keepers. However, I do struggle to come to terms with this move.
Lots of Arsenal fans saying he’s not at the level we need, whilst praising the astute signing of a player we’ve not seen yet. On Ramires, I absolutely disagree he is not at the right level. He was a beast a few seasons ago. He can run all day. He can play a disciplined role. My thing with him, or other options in the league, is that they have NOW capabilities. Wenger is a specialist at signing players in January that he doesn’t use until the next season. We’ve needed a DM all month. We have one, but he’s not ready. Why didn’t we just raid this league?
… but more to the point, what the hell is a 28 year old Premier League player doing going over to China?
‘Ramires, it’s the police. We have your hard drive. Could you pop down to the police station for chat’
That’s all I can think of. Anyway, what about Chelsea selling their cast offs for mega money again? Bruce Buck is quite the dealmaker.
THE ABSOLUTE MEGA NEWS OF TODAY IS THIS
We have Coq back in contention. That is so big. We’ve missed him badly. At least this time he returns into the side and we have an Egyptian who can drop in when he is tired.
How good is that? Very good.
More good news. Danny WELBZ is back in training. About bloody time right? If he can work on his composure, he’ll be a massive gift to the run in. That height combined with the speed is going to give us some nice options. It’ll no doubt kick Theo up the backside.
I just hope we don’t get the usual… return to action of 3, lose 4 the next week.
Sam Allardyce said this on Debuchy moving.
“I am not sure he wants to leave Arsenal or that Arsene Wenger would sell him.”
Not sure I’d want to move to Sunderland either. We should absolutely be keeping him at the club if we don’t have a back up organised. I’ve no doubt Bellerin will get injured at some point. We have to have someone ready to muck in if that’s the case. Kind of feel like Wenger should be rotating the full backs though. We pile games on Monreal and Bellerin… which is fine, but it doesn’t do much of the motivation of the backups. Then when they’re called upon, they’re rusty as fuck and a little bit hurt (remember when we needed Vermaelen a few years back?).
Anyway, just my two pennies.
HAVE A NICE NIGHT X
