What a depressing read that was, when Arsene launched Arsenal TV yesterday he talked about Anelka and how Arsenal talked with his representatives to bring him home in the transfer window, yes! Thats right, ‘home’ because that’s where he belongs, but it didn’t happen, I wished he had said nothing, now I know we could have had him and didn’t, I’m even more depressed.
Theo on loan to West Ham? That would be a good move if they played him up top, but at this stage of the season we can’t afford to lose him.
I think he will explode this term, he’s only 18, he only cost us £5 mil and he has more skill than most in the team, I feel it’s only a matter of time. Regardless, the story had no source and if you read some of the comments, the site that wrote the article has been known for its lies.
Fabricio is a young Spanish goalie from Deportivo that we are apparently interested in, even if he is great, why would we do that? Fabianski is what, 22? That would only serve to unsettle him, what we need is a young back up, and we have that in Mannone or a replacement for Almunia, like say, 6 goalGiven, but I think Almunia is good enough.
Djourou got the nod on one blog site from a readers poll and I think that’s Ok but I would like to give Hoyte a run there, I think he could do a great
job and be a future center half on the cheap, he won’t be right back, that’s for sure.
The squad are in for two training sessions this week and after Saturday, that probably makes a lot of sense.
We heard a rumour that WordPress delete sites that use the Arsenal logo so we’ll look into that and if it’s true we’ll put our substitute banner on soon, don’t worry, it’s a good one and was designed by a top London advertising agency, it will be like bringing Robin on for Thierry, not Stepanovs for Adams, and with the new flag waving experience at the Grove, it may be more prudent.
This time of the week is football’s equivalent of the doldrums, not a lot of news but there is still plenty for you Grovers to discuss or to wish for in the comments section. Also, take a look at the ‘random rant‘ section, it has replaced the highly successful guest blogging feature!
I haven’t seen Arsenal TV yet, but I’m reading you can see academy games and the like so I’ll take a peek and let you all know.
Finally Wenger said he intends to go English, now whilst I have been asking for a few Englanders in the team, I don’t want any of them if they aren’t as
good as our foreign kids, but I think the boss means he’ll bring them through the academy, so my guess is he’s talking long term, so Grovers, be patient.
I hope you enjoy the following quote as much as I did.
‘Maybe 80 per cent of the academy are English and 20 per cent are foreign.’
The future looks bright, the future is English. Check out the full article here.
Have a great day and I look forward to some top comments from the webs most articulate site… …and that’s official (another Mori poll before anyone jumps on me).
We’ve also been linked with a £5million bid for Andre Dede Ayew. We couldn’t find any videos of him, so we thought we’d show you what his Dad played like instead!
Could we be onto a winner here?
