How so? Some of our more cynical readers may say, and something penned by the Bear? What’s the catch? Well now it emerges our talented frontman Nicklas Bendtner has also attracted interest from Ajax should they lose Suarez, earlier the Bayern president said he would have him in a flash, well I would have Schweinsteiger in a heartbeat or Suarez in a swap deal anyday for our highly rated Dane.
Now as far as I’m concerned Cesc will eventually go, of that there is no doubt and everytime he goes away with the Spanish squad or whenever he goes on holiday these Cesc to Barca rumours will persist, just like they used to with Paddy, and that was really tedious, he’s also started to get injured a lot so maybe it’s time to cash in on project youth and make it pay off.
We would get at least £50mil for Cesc, Schweinsteiger could easily replace him, Suarez would replace Bendtner and we could do all that and still have money in the bank.
Keep Cesc and we could still do great business in any kind of Bendtner swap, so why am I touting Bendtner? Well because I’m fed up with his leaving threats, if he was a top striker I could understand, maybe somewhere else he would flourish, but I think his Arsenal days are numbered, so cash in.
I have to have a little chuckle when I read that Nasri is proof that certain policies are paying dividends, I hate to burst that little bubble but he was only £2mil off our record signing, we paid £11mil for a teenager and this season we are seeing it pay off, but we all saw the youtube clips when he was at Marseille and he was called the new Zidane, so it really shouldn’t be a massive surprise should it. We didn’t discover an 8 year old in La Paz working in a copper mine and pay 6 Pesos for him did we!
Samir I’ve always loved you, keep it up son, you really are shaping up to be our very own Zidane.
The bit written on Alex Song by Arsene worries the life out of me, if we let him roam up front at random next Monday, we’ll get murdered, keep him at the back defending the hapless defence Arsene or we will be punished. If Squillaci could head the ball towards the oppositions goal like he headed Koscielny, he would be a real goal threat, until he does, I’m dreaming of a Vermaelen Djourou pairing sooner rather than later, having a Subotic or a Sakho would turn us from hopefuls to nailed-ons but that won’t happen because the boss won’t admit he bought two pups in the summer.
I still think he’ll move Almunia out and Given in though, I know he said he wouldn’t be buying unless he loses someone, but I think he chose his words carefully and if Vermaelen doesn’t make it back soon, then he may be tempted to go for someone else at the back as well, but as I said, I won’t hold my breath.
And don’t forget folks, we still have Ramsey and Diaby to return from injury, Oh and Diaby is the tall French guy that got injured against Sunderland 4 years ago!
There is a small part of me that doesn’t care what happens in the ECL, that part is the part that will allow us to concentrate on the league and domestic cups, if Wenger doesn’t think we are favourites to win our own league, what chance does he think we’ll have against the rest of Europe?
I’m a little bleary eyed this morning as I stayed up to watch England humiliate the Aussies in the second test, so my sympathies go out to all our Australian cousins, bad luck old chaps and better luck next time, and by that I mean the next time the Ashes are played for, because this series has long gone!
Have a great day Grovers, tomorrow we have a little housekeeping to take care of.
