So despite all the rumblings that Hleb can buy out his contract, Le boss has come out and said twinkle toes has 2 years left on his contract and he is not for sale. I am no expert in ‘Websters Law’ but I thought you could only invoke it it if you had 1 year left on your contract… something Wenger seems to believe.
“Alex Hleb has two years’ contract [left],”
“He is not for sale.”
Good for you Arsene, that sounds distinctly like you are telling a player he can’t go? Are you finally showing some back bone when it come to players? If so, Le Grove salutes you! A contract is a contract, end of.
In other news, the Flamster still hasn’t decided what he is doing. Le boss said,
‘The deadline moved for negotiation problems. Only he could tell you [whether he will go or not]. For me yes he stays, but does he tell me the complete truth, I don’t know.’
What a marvelous guy Flamini is, he is most likely waiting to see whether Milan make it into Europe next season before he decides… all at the expense of his current club. If he goes, I would wager some cash on him not making it. Arsenal suits his game, and only this particular team… he has never looked that great in seasons past (Centre Mid), and I would say a few other players are responsible for raising his profile.
Anyway, I’d like him to stay, but if he leaves… so be it. He has certainly shown a lack of class and respect for the fans during this contract debacle. Only at Arsenal eh?
Wenger was in bullish mood in the press conference yesterday,
‘If we won at Man United, which we could have done, we would be champions.’
‘You cannot say just these two have been good and the rest are rubbish.’
‘It was very tight between the three teams.’
I believe there is a saying that goes,
‘If your Aunty had bollocks, she’d be your Uncle.’
I agree that it has been tight this season, but at the end of the day Arsenal capitulated. We weren’t in the chasing pack all season… we led, then fell away with some costly draws.
Lets hope he has some plans for the summer, because a little tweak in the right areas could give us the extra 6 points next year.
At least now you can enjoy your breakfast safe in the knowledge only one player can leave.
Have a good day Grovers!
