Werder Bremen have said they would consider selling Mesut Ozil after he flat out refused to increase the length of his contract, the one that only has 12 months to run. So I think that we should trump all the other suitors and get him signed up now.
We have the money, he’ll always have a sell on value at more than we pay for him, he’s not a flash in the pan as he was promising at the under 21 Euros and has developed massively since then, so it’s win, win.
Should we allow Cesc to move we can cover the cost and have change left over, would we be saying goodbye to our Spaniard by doing it? No way, we stand a better chance of him staying if we sign Ozil.
Make no mistake, someone will buy him so why not us? We kick off against Barnet on Saturday and I for one can’t wait, I hope we debut the new kit, but as Barnet play in Orange and the new kit doesn’t come out till the 29th don’t hold your breath.
The new kit is the best one we’ve had since Wenger joined us, so that to me is as exciting as the new signings, maybe more so as I can’t wear Chamakh or Koscielny but I can wear the new shirt.
The other thing that would make me happy would be to see Iniesta, Xabi, Pique, Busquets, Messi, Puyol and Rosell all put on charges of tapping up our players and sent to Devils Island to serve their 45 year sentences, I would also like us to put in a bid for Reina so we can pay him back for putting a Barca shirt on our captain and then stick the sucker in the reserves for the season, in chains and a hair shirt.
Hodgson has publicly come out and said he’ll struggle to hold on to his stars, so maybe a cheeky biid for Javier Mascerano is on the cards, who knows eh?
I hope we put more than the usual suspects out for the Barnet game, normally he’ll put in the ex-injured players like Rosicky and the fringees like Randall, I hope we see more of the first team, with players like Jackie boy on show, the latest rumour is Cahill in and Wilshere out on loan, hmmm, would you?
I still believe we need EPL quality at the back, but still no movement from the boss, he did say he wants his squad in place and in time for the pre-season, so maybe today will see some activity, I hope so, I need cheering up!
I would still like to bring in players like Toulalon and Gourcuff but I think Wenger has discounted that, and as I have said before we probably have enough Frenchmen, Nasri has that glint in his eye in training, I’m hoping he will bring to the table what we all hoped for, I think he’s a class act and will prove to be that big player we hoped he would be.
I think it’s too early for our young defenders, Bartley may step up but I haven’t seen much of him, JET may do as well but ditto, and Barazite could be the winger we needed, sometimes the youngsters just turn the mental and physical corner in the summer lay-off, I hope so, that would give us something to smile about other than the new kit.
Yesterday I spoke to a staff member of Arsenal football club, we had a nice long chat and he shared many of my concerns, he said that the board finally realise we need to do more in the market and to keep the faith, he is also considering contributing to the odd post as a ghost writer, so watch this space, maybe next season we really will have inside information.
I didn’t tell him which blog I wrote save to say many consider us the only blog out there that challenges what goes on, so if he reads this, he’ll know who we are! More importantly he’ll know who I am, so if I suddenly get banned, we’ll know he was a Trojan horse, if I don’t, next season could be interesting.
Come on Arsenal, only today left to meet the Barnet deadline, give us something more to smile about.
I think we’ll win the league, the ECL, the League and FA Cup double and yes, the Emirates Cup, the one we all covet so much.
I really think we’ll sign the players we need to do it, a final word for Koscielny, we don’t need you to work like a dog, just a top, top centre back, and if the boss thinks you’re the one, I’ll be cheering you on from the off.
Have a great day grovers, tomorrow is the start of our destiny!
