For the FA to suggesting that David beckham is the answer is the dumbest thing I have heard in my entire blogging life, nay, my entire life, it’s as far fetched as suggesting that Saddam Hussain had weapons of mass destruction.
Before Beckham got involved with the England team, they were in the main, men, and men that died for the cause, remember Terry Butcher and his bleeding bandaged head against Sweden?
Then Beckham came along, got sent off in his first world cup for petulance, jumped out of a tackle in his second against Brazil, and we were winning at the time, but he was more concerned about his haircut, and he played like shite in his last one and cost us any chance of winning by refusing to run the line, I know, I was there.
When people tell me he did his all for England, I laugh, he did his all for himself, and his last 25 caps were the FA, trying to give him the record.
Beckham started the rich boy wag culture and we have suffered ever since, bring in a manager that plays form players, not ones that rely on reputations, bring in a manager that puts the fans first, bring in a manager that laughs at reputations and bring in a manager that has managed at the coal face in England.
For me, give it to Harry, he’s already said he would jump at the chance, how would you feel today if you were a spud, at least our manager turned down the chance to manage France for his club. Harry has already said he’d have it!
However, don’t sack Capello, the FA gave him an extended contract and if we do, it will cost us £8mil, if you’re going to sack anyone, sack the FA that gave it to him.
I had to laugh at Brooking’s comments, he said we were struggling from 11 years old as kids aren’t being taught ball skills, well a mate of mine has offered to start an England academy, where kids go in at 11, they board there, are taught by football professionals (from EPL Academies) as well as being educated, if they don’t turn out to be the next Messi, they will at least turn out well balanced, educated kids that would add to the economy instead of the feral kind we currently turn out, they would trawl from all walks of life, privilage doesn’t come into it, talent does.
I suggested writing to Brooking, they needed £15mil over an 8 year period, you know what Brooking said? He said the FA couldn’t afford to fund it! They could however afford to give Capello an extended contract, pay for Beckham to sit in the dug out showing off his tattoos and send their entourage out to South Africa, first class, go figure, that’s the FA for you.
Okay, that’s enough about England, we have a global audience of Gooners to address, so I will now talk Arsenal.
With YaYa seemingly on his way to Man City, it seems now, that finally the transfer merry go round will begin, De Jong anyone?
It also appears we have finally landed Laurent Kosienlny for Gallas and there were rumours that Kjaer and Balotelli are next up, now that I would have, Joe Cole only wants centre midfield so if that’s the case I would prefer to sign Ozil or Gourcuff if I had to choose. Or both if Cesc goes.
We still need a keeper, but that looks like Schwarzer, frankly a Neuer would do me, but I’m sure he’s too close to Chezza’s age for Wenger to do that, so maybe Schwarzer is the answer, either is better than what we currently have.
If we keep Campbell or sign Kjaer, I think we have enough at the back, but DM is an area we need to strengthen as I don’t think Eastmond is yet ready.
I saw a glimpse of the new kit on a website yesterday and if it’s true, then I like it, I just hope we have hooped socks, white with a red top, or red with a white top.
So with all that little lot am I being greedy? It’s my wish list and if he dips in there, and the kit is right, then I for one will be in happy bunny land.
I so hope that Kosienlny is as good as Wenger seems to think because if we can shore up the back, we can win the lot, if we replace some of the kids we let go with real quality, then we’ll also have the squad we need to compete on all fronts.
Let’s hope so eh? It’s long overdue. have a great day Grovers.
