Another quick post from me as I’m visiting a company who sell wholesale electrical fittings… yep, trust those b*stards to be located in Wrexham…!
On with the post…
We’ve been tenuously linked with Algerian superstar, Madjid Bougherra, for about £5 million. He managed to keep England at bay the other night with ease and to be fair, he did have a blinder. Can you buy a player based on one game? Of course not, unless they are Freddie Ljungberg! Is his agent using Arsenal to push the value of his player up… highly likely. So probably not the best story to report on. However, it’s a more interesting story than the Cesc one doing the rounds and if we bought him, turned him into a success and Madrid came knocking, I could bust out this headline.
Madjid to Madrid
Wouldn’t that be a cool headline?
One player whose name has been bandied about for two years is Subotic. Apparently he could be on the way out of Dortmund for a massive fee this summer. That massive fee should be enough to cancel his transfer to us, however, if Manchester United can afford to be in the running, I see no reason why we shouldn’t be. The guy is a bit of a beast and young enough to represent value for money, I don’t think the giant defender will have too many issues in the air either and he has a good grasp of the English language. We’ll wait and see on that one…
Arsene Wenger has been cracking more jokes than Emmanuel Eboue at an open mic this week… he’s been joking about England fans falling asleep and Peter Crouch being very tall… however, he was in no mood to joke when it came to questions about his captain!
This annoys me a little touch… why isn’t Wenger backing Cesc to stay 100%? Is he thinking about the bigger picture… about what he could do to his squad with £40million? Or has he run out of material when it comes to his own players? Who knows… but I’d prefer him to retort to that type of question with witty one liners about us signing Messi for £5 million.
So, it’s my birthday today and I thought I’d take some time out to thank you guys!
Another year has passed and according to the statistics, our daily following has grown another 30%. Is that down to the superior writing Geoff and I put together on a daily basis… or is it because the community created over here is so superior to any other site?
I’m going with the latter (Although if you’d like to disagree, please feel free)!
Le Grove is the place to thrash out all things Arsenal in a respectful manner and I can’t thank you all enough for allowing that to happen… the comments section here is the exception, not the rule. Over the last year we’ve seen sites pop up off the back of Le Grove and we’ve seen sites try to capture traffic by stalking us in a very public way… both are extremely complimentary and what I find really fascinating when I tell people I write for Le Grove is that they all have their favourite characters from the comments section.
So basically, this is a big fat thank you for continuing to accept that the best way to talk about football is the way you’d talk about it with your friends down the pub and for continuing to come by everyday!
Long may all that nonsense continue and long may our love for the club supercede the powers that be!
It’s been a great crack and if I was feeling emotional, I might have left you with a joke and a cyber voucher for a crate of Peroni. Sadly, we still haven’t set up that sort of advertising deal with Peroni and my jokes make people sad.
Anyway, have a great day, see you in the comments!
P.S. Couldn’t resist:
My granddad has just been told he has arthritis in both his wrists, so we’ve nicknamed him Anelka.
