So I have been firmly out the loop with Arsenal for 3 days and let me tell you, it wasn’t nice.
I had about 6 text messages from my brother on Saturday, here are a few:
- Yes! No fucking Eboue, theoooooo!
- Theo’s been outstanding, Van Persie just hit the bar and post with a free kick
- Theo just hit the bar
- We won 2-0 but should have been 10, hit the post twice, hit the bar 3 times, 1 off the line and song played amazingly well.
So I don’t turn up for one sodding game and that happens!
I haven’t seen the goals or read much about it… all I know is that the boys were back to their best and Theo has given Arsene a real headache for next season.
So, we know that Flamini has about 10 more days to decide what he is doing, I understand from sources close to the club that Wenger has £14,000 set aside for a top class replacement plying his trade in the Morrocan 3rd Division. Good old Arsene!
I understand why a deadline has been set, but what if he doesn’t sign? Is he barred from the training ground? Does his locker get given to Justin Hoyte? I hear that poor chap still has to get changed outside…
I’ve also read that Gilberto may stay on for next year…. good on ya Bertie. We need all the experience we can get and he has started to show signs that he may be rekindling some of last seasons form.
We are in for Raul Albiol according to the Evening Standard.
Actually, yes there will be a comment. Why are we chasing after a 22 year old defender plying his trade for 16th position Valencia? If that rumour is true, I will be miffed to say the least. I don’t want to see potential, I want to see ready made world class talent at the Emirates.
Oh and Ade maybe off to Milan… this is old news rehashed. He is the younger Drogba according to reports. I would be very surprised to see Ade making his way over to Italy. Football wise, they are a spent force… this is where the cash is, this is where the best players play. Simple as that really.
We shall wait and see on both of those stories.
Anyway, I’m off for a catch up on the news.
See you in the comments
