Well, well, I got that wrong didn’t I? Why, because I haven’t a clue or because the boss hasn’t a clue? A piece of top management or a sign that he may be losing the plot? Only time will tell, but I for one am not happy, this was one rumour I was not pleased came true.
If we were signing a world class 28 year old defender I would be pleased, we’re not though are we? we’re signing an injury prone has-been the Mancs didn’t want and now the rumours have started that Wenger is going to send Djourou out on loan. Just when he was showing promise.
Signing a player who has hit the dizzying age of 31 is crazy enough, giving him a 2 year deal is hypercritical, esepecially when you didn’t afford the same luxury to Arsenal legends. Don’t tell me for a minute Bobby Pires / Sol Campbell / Gilberto couldn’t have done a job for us for on a 2 year deal.
I’m starting to think xenophobia, we made 5 signings this summer, one Welshman and four from France, and two of those are injury prone, before someone tells me Bitchslap is from Portugal, he’s half French and played for the under 18’s I believe.
So when the boss says he doesn’t look at their passports, I’m not so sure. If he wanted experience at the back he should have signed Dunne, it seems to me 3 out of 5 players on freebies is tight fisted and smacks of doing stuff on the cheap.
Still I may be way wrong on this one and he could be just what we need, it’s just odd that Fergie didn’t, it reeks of West Ham and Freddie to me.
Still Frank McLintock says it’s a good signing so I’ll go along with it, but I don’t think he’s been bought as cover, that’s why he left the Mancs, because he wasn’t getting games.
Why couldn’t we have read that he’d just swooped for Barry or Cana or YaYa, why is it another gamble? I hope we still buy the defensive midfielder we so desperately need, I hope this isn’t it the end of the signings.
I also found out yesterday that LOL didn’t stand for lots of love, so I’ve been reading a lot of comments the wrong way, I thought you were all so caring, still I attach it to today’s heading as I feel it fits… not the love bit, the laugh bit!
Have a great day debating Grovers, I bet this signing has you divided.
