Defensive midfielders… the choices and why Arsenal need one | Alex Song stories hotting up | Cazorla is here!

by & filed under News Review.

We’ve only gone and done it… we’ve only landed Santi Cazorla… a year after first expressing an interest, Gazidis and Dick Law have pulled it together and nabbed their man for the criminally low price of £12million!

It’s early to bed to pray to the god of transfers.

‘Please lord, let this mythical major club come in for me and pay me what my ego feels it’s worth!’

Happy Birthday Robin!

Morning Grove fans, apologies for the lack of a normal post yesterday. A mix of technical problems and Geoff’s selfish holiday booking meant there was nothing from me. A big thanks to Sam for his guest post.

So what did we miss?

Loads apparently.
