Good morning and welcome to September and the the first T-Day of the season.
T-day is transfer day… This is what our whole summer of speculation amounts to, this is what we’ve been waiting for, this is when we find out whether we’ll be challenging for honours past February. All those players in the title have been linked at one time or another, but it doesn’t matter now.. because it all culminates today.
So who could be coming in?
Rumour 1: Patrick Vieira
Patrick was seen living the high life with new signing Silvestre in the executive box at the weekend. Rumour has it that Jose has put paid to his career at Inter and that he maybe about to sign a 1 year deal with us. He is injured at the moment, which would make him appealing to Wenger, but he is also on a planned promotional tour… and if rumours are to be believed, he may have been trying to get some of his deposit back on those damn pesky Highbury flats…
Rumour 2: Xabi Alonso
Ok, so if Barry goes to Liverpool… Alonso could find himself in a car racing down the M1 to sign terms with Wenger. This one makes sense if Arsene is into pleasing Cesc… but seeing as he’s never appeased a player with signings before, I don’t see him starting today. Alonso makes sense from a footballing perspective and most Gooners would love it, most Pool fans would hate it.
Rumour 3: Metzelder
The bearded German is reportedly on our radar for a season long loan. He is a top international and a beast of a player. I’m not quite sure why he isn’t getting in the Madrid team, but who cares if we can nick him on loan for a year. Experienced, efficient and a winner… could be a good move!
Rumour 4: JD
Rumour has it that JD could be off to West Ham for £8million to replace Anton Ferdinand. Don’t even entertain this rumour… he is going to be a top player for us and I would be absolutely gutted to see him go. Don’t do it Arsene… You gave Phil way more chances than JD and it would be unfair to get rid of a player the fans really like
Rumour 5: Kaka
Yeah Arsene, I want Kaka for £60million and if you don’t sign him I’m going to write a letter to the Chairman demanding you out.
Ok, that one was a joke… Wenger reckons the fans always want a £40million solution, so I thought I’d be the first to ask for one. KAKA KAKA KAKA!
So they are the 4 big ones this morning (+1)… I really had to scrape the barrel for those… so you know what that means? I’ll be completely wrong!
I hope so as well, I hope we’ve got 2 players lined up, two amazing players, 2 future heroes who are ready for now football! I’d like a utility midfielder with experience and a direct replacement for Flamimi.
Wenger knows he needs to buy now and he knows that if he doesn’t buy well, he has put his head firmly on the chopping block if we get exposed later on in the year. Lets pray for a transfer miracle (Two transfer miracles!)!
Midnight awaits, when the clock strikes twelve, will we turn into a Premiership contending team?
