First of all, one of our dumped players called one of his suiters Beyoncé, then the other one talks about loving a woman and how he feels loved, the strange thing is neither of them mention their salaries being doubled. Odd that, them leaving for footballing reasons and those of love, I thought we played the best football, I also thought we had the best manager in world football, I can’t comment on the love bit so I’ll have to give them that.
Anyway enough on those two, Arshavin came out and said that we need to repace Kolo, he said that Vermaelen was good but can’t be expected to step in and replace a pillar in defence, so he’s good, but not that good. What does Arshavin know? The last thing we need is new players.
So now we all know that Arsenal are a selling club, we at least should stop complaining that we don’t buy players, the boss has said buying quality players is not the answer so that’s it then. No argument from me. I get bored with signing great players, I like to see the younger ones trying their best, because they are, well young, one day they’ll get good and then we’ll sell them and add to our vast collection of money.
At least we have stopped being Barcelona’s feeder club, Manchester City hold that title now, I wonder who they want next? I think we’ll have to wait until Christmas to find out though, I’m getting excited already.
I’ve now replaced that exciting feeling of buying a new player with that of selling a player, try it yourself, it really does work, oh and the return of injured players. So when they get injured, I get all warm inside as I know I’ll only have to wait a year before they come back as a new signing. It’s like a signing in progress.
Gael Clichy is out of the season opener as will be Rosicky (no doubt) – still when they do come back it will be like having two new signings, so I can’t wait.
At least we’ll start the season at the top of the table, so make the most of it Grovers.
We have been known here on Le Grove to whine and bitch about the club, it’s direction and the choices the manager makes, well not today, today I am going to get behind the management and agree with their philosophy, after all it has been said that buying payers is not the answer, training hard is.
And yes, before you ask, Ferguson, Ancellotti, Benitez, Capello, Hughes and all the other managers than run or have run big clubs are completely wrong.
I will wait for the season ticket rebate as the club have been given £50 million by Man City and haven’t spent it so I guess they will give it to us to lessen the pain of paying more than anyone else and getting least back. I know that sounded like a bitch, but it wasn’t, they will do it won’t they?
A final point but has anyone else noticed that since David Dein has left, we’ve sold more players than we’ve signed and we’ve won nothing, coincidence?
Have a great day and don’t forget, Arsene knows, he’s got something up his sleeve and we’re going to win the league.
How’s that, positive enough?
