First of all the good news, Traore extends his contract, a good bit of news for a talented young star of the future, well done Armand!
The stories of us going after Moutinho are getting stronger but the reasons for it bother me,
‘Without the funds to pay for Sporting’s Miguel Veloso, Arsenal are to study other options, with Moutinho topping the list.’
This was a direct quote from one of the sites I read today but why on earth did I bother to write a piece yesterday if these people can’t be arsed to read it? The quote goes on to say we can’t afford Veloso because we already spent the money on Nasri, no we didn’t moron, that was the Hleb money, we still have the £25 million left, plus all the money from the sell-ons, less the money spent on Ramsey, why can’t these people do a little research? It doesn’t take much does it?
For that reason I still believe we’ll sign either Veloso or Barry, why the scousers haven’t signed him is beyond me, do they want him or don’t they? if they don’t why don’t we move for him?
This is the bit where in October, Wenger will tell us he almost signed him and didn’t, if you almost sign someone it means you wanted them, we need someone so if it’s one of them, for gods sake sign them now.
I can’t see the point in taking all the kids tonight, what will we learn? given this was a Herbert Chapman ‘thank you’ game we should have at least taken the first team, and if it is so close to the Amsterdam tournament, we should have played it yesterday.
We are taking Justin Hoyte, for what? doesn’t he know by now the lad will never make it at Arsenal, it must be humiliating for the poor sod, being taken up there with the hopefuls, I just don’t see the point.
Good to see Barazite getting a chance, for me Barazite should be getting a squad number. Sadly no Merida, I wonder where he is?
So a night in front of the laptop watching the kids again, still could be worse, why don’t England play all their worthless friendlies in the off season, that way it wouldn’t interfere with the real season.
It was a rhetorical question before any AKB jumps on that one, and talking of AKB’s, we had just the one yesterday and one scouser, I think they must do one of three things – 1) they get fed up, 2) they go back to school or 3) they read the blog and realise that most of what we all say here makes sense, what do you think?
Have a fun day and enjoy the game tonight.
