Well recent research has now backed up what we have been saying for nearly 6 months, that nearly a quarter of Arsenal fans will not be renewing their season tickets next term, well considering no one asked me, Pedro or anyone I know that goes, that figure could be a lot higher.
Arsenal will say it’s not just us, it’s everyone in the premier league, so what, if we had bought a few key players in the summer, instead of selling some, we may not have had this problem, speculate to accumulate, it’s not too late Arsenal, a lot of those people would go the extra mile if they thought you would, right, enough on that.
Don’t forget though, we didn’t need Virgin to spend a gazillion quid on research to tell us that, so maybe Arsenal should pay a bit more attention to Le Grove in the future.
Last night our academy team tore Wolves a new bottom with a 3-1 win, Sunu grabbed a hatrick but the down side was that Jacky boy* picked up a nasty ankle injury that could see him out for a while, so now even more reason to bring in some star names.
The hot story that won’t go away is that we are on the verge of signing Arshavin, well we also found out yesterday that he was voted the 6th best player in the world and given those under him are all valued at over £30milllion, Wenger should just buy him, he could still get him for less than we paid for Wiltord 8 years ago so why dilly dally boss? get him in before someone else does, don’t let him be another one that got away.
Get rid of Gallas, buy a new and better, younger centre back and give Arshavin the cherished number 10 shirt, give it to a player that ‘is fit’ to lace Bergkamp’s boots.
This would give the fans a huge lift and with February around the corner, you may find more people will renew their tickets, I know Pedro and I will!
Not a lot of other news about today so it would be a really good time to cheer us all up. I like Gallas and I rate him as a player, but he has caused problems in the ranks, he’ll soon be 32 and we all know he’ll be gone in the summer, so get shot now while he still has some stock, yes I know he’s injured, but it’s only a minor tug, and Milan will have him.
Man City are now turning their attention to Kaka, I don’t believe the figures of between £100 and £175mil because he’s not that good and the Mancs aren’t that stupid, but at least they seem to be cooling on Arshavin.
Some interesting views on who you all think is the worst player ever to wear an Arsenal shirt, well apart from Gunnersaurus I think that title goes to a player that is still in the squad and was signed on some kind of talented visa, we won’t go there today though and you all know my views, a good solid signing though should take that problem away.
Have a fun filled day today Grovers, it’s now only 3 days to go before we play Hull and I can’t wait, don’t forget that hell hath no fury like a talented side that got beaten by a pub team.
*Update: Rhys Murphy was injured.
