The latest rumour on the mill is that Man City starlet Michael Johnson is being eyed up by Wenger, this is a signing I would like, he reminds me of Carrick/Flamini with a bit of Petit rolled in there, I would prefer Barry but that’s looking unlikely.
There’s talk of Mark Milligan from Sydney coming but that has to be nonsense, not that I have anything against Aussie footballers, but it’s hardly premiership quality in that league and we need finished products, not more hopefuls.
With the departure of Edelman yesterday, talk is of bringing Dein back, I would welcome that as he knew where the cheque book was stored, but that’s a long shot, and by now they may have moved it to a shoebox that Dein doesn’t know about.
I thought that Dein had fallen out with the board about overseas investment and there was no way back except through Trojan horse Usmanov, but why has Edelman gone then? Stranger things have happened.
Unless of course he got canned for lying about how much we had in the transfer kitty, time will tell, but getting rid of him with two games to go tells me something is about to happen.
Kolo has said he will call Thierry and urge him to come home and that I welcome, come back on a reduced salary and help coach the kids through, I know he’s injured a lot, but who isn’t at Arsenal these days eh?
I know a lot of you will be against it, but it does make sense to have some experience back in, a bit like Dennis was and he retired at 36, so with him, Henry and Adams back, it could be a match made in heaven.
Today’s press conference will let us know whether or not Flamini’s going, but if he does I hope to hell we replace him with someone either proven, or ready.
Gattuso isn’t the one for me, he hasn’t the flair we need, Kolo can do a Gattuso job if needed.
There has been talk of Sergio Ramos but I can’t see Madrid letting him go, Robinho would be great, but where would we get the money, unless of course we could peruade them that Eboue would suit them better than what they have currently.
Back to Everton, we need to win not just for the chance of landing the league, but as a send off to us, the fans.
Why Wenger is resting Robin is a mystery, what precaution boss, it’s the end of the season?
Finally with all this talk about climate change and carbon footprints, what would the carbon footprint be to send two lots of fans to Moscow for a day? Or should I say one lot as the Chavs don’t have any supporters.
I know a chav (formerly a Leicester fan until he got free tickets) and he’s going to Portugal to play golf instead, imagine that? Well that’s a Chelsea fan for you.
Finally many of you new bloggers were held in moderation in the early hours, sorry about that, you’re on now, so a belated welcome.
Have a speculative day Grovers, we may know more tonight!
