Super kid defender Ignasi Miquel will join us from Cornella in September when he turns 16, following in the footsteps of Cesc he comes via the Barca academy, also known as Arsenal’s feeder club. This story was brought to you in late Feb by Le Grove, but its now official!
Great idea really, they supply us the kids and we supply them the oldies out the other end, now that’s co-operation!
We beat the Mancs and Chavs to this one, so a sweet deal all round and it shows the kid is intelligent, unusual for a defender. (John Terry/Rio Ferdinand)
The Mancs and chavs are also late entrants in the race for the double, the Chavs, who 3 weeks ago were being tipped to win the quadruple by potato head Michael Essien (who can’t even get a game) were humbled by Barnsley whilst the Mancs were dumped by Arsenal old boys, Portsmouth.
We go to Wigan today to play on a dodgy pitch but who cares? They have to play on it as well don’t they? With Robin back, we look good again.
Why we had to play against Colorado Rapids is beyond me, and we picked up 2 injuries as a result.
Wenger is already saying he doesn’t need money as he believes in his team, yawn, yawn, here we go again, long boring summer here we come.
The word on the street is Arsenal are going to leave an envelope stuffed with cash on every seat at the Grove as a big thank you to the fans.
Well they obviously don’t need it do they?
Hold the line today boys as Maximus Meridius Decimus would say, we need patience if we are to get the four goals I have predicted, don’t let me down boys, it’s not often we get to beat the European champions away and go 4 points clear in the Premier league in the same week!
Finally after our blog on Ian Wright and Talk Sport, we had a late, late comment in the awaiting approval box from ‘Ian Wright’ it simply said ‘sorry boys’ I didn’t publish it as I couldn’t be sure it was from the man himself, if it was, good on you Ian, if it wasn’t, there you go.
Have a happy Sunday Grovers!
