The latest news is that David Silva is out of the big clash and that has to be good news for the Arsenal, if it could just be arranged to bang Tevez on the head I will be celebrating earlier than expected!
We are apparently after the 6ft 5in giant Per Mertesacker, but have offered £1.5m less than the German club’s valuation, and it’s because we are offering less than they want I believe there may be some truth to the story. He is just what we need, imagine him and Johan or him and Vermaelen, awesome. Dream on though Grovers, you know what Wenger is like at admitting he was wrong.
Barca have now turned their attention to our new star Samir Nasri, I hope that’s true because that will show Cesc their love for him was a one season wonder, Nasri wouldn’t go there, he loves us way too much, but life wouldn’t be the same if we didn’t have Barca after half our team would it!
Only one day to go to the big one, I think they were lucky to beat Blackpool and that was at home, we were unlucky not to score more at Birmingham so it promises to be a good night for the boys, I am confident we’ll stuff them, I honestly fear no team anymore, the way we’ve played with this team against the chavs and the brummies has lifted my expectations.
If anyone out there hasn’t seen the Alex Hleb clip then they need to, it’s priceless, in it he says that Cesc is his best mate and he regrets leaving Arsenal, I hope he tells Cesc that leaving to go to Barca was a massive error and not to do the same.
How strange that old red nose is praising Pulis, just before they go there to play them, is Pulis that thick he will fall for it like the Crow did with the Cheese and the Fox. (Aesop fable)
So unless Wenger surprises us with a tasty couple of signings, it’s another quiet day in Arsenal land.
Enjoy today, this is my last posting from Spain, today I fly back to Blighty!
