Just a quick post for you this morning as I’m pretty damn hungover!
Alex Song, after 5 odd years at the club, has finally managed to land himself some newspaper inches with Inter Milan supposedly throwing their hat in the ring to sign the defensive midfielder. Now, as you can imagine, this is a rumour that I’m quite pleased about. I’ve never really been too keen on the consistently average Cameroonian. I have question marks over his love for the club and I’ve heard that he’s on the look out for his next big contract. If we could earn £14million out of him, as far as I’m concerned, we’d be shifting a problem player off our books.
The slower pace of life in Italy would probably suit him down to the ground in Italy… and at least we have Denilson ready to take over from him next season! Or perhaps we could throw in Arsenal.com favourite Frimpong into the first team next year?
The other player apparently on the move is world-class party planner, Carlos Vela. He’s mulling over a move to Italy, a country where high-class hookers are a Government worker standard. If he can’t make it on the football front, I’m sure he could gather himself a couple of ho’s and tap into the Berlusconi market… said to be worth a gross annual average of £332million a year… If I’m that horny at 70, throw a bucket of cold water over me and give me a high five.
Carlos is a bit of an enigma. He has all the talent in the world to be a truly fantastic player, yet when it’s come down to the crunch, he’s gone missing. I can’t work out why he hasn’t made it. He hasn’t really been given a fair crack at the whip from where I’m sitting. That said, if Nik B is looking better than you outwide in training, perhaps you’re doing something wrong in training?
Finally, we’re looking at Chris Samba again. Well, so say the Daily Mail. Why are they saying that? I’d imagine it’s something called, ‘let’s see what the Gooner’s are talking about online, then make up a story so they’ll click our links.’
Bravo Daily Mail, I clicked your stupid link. You’ve had me!
I like the huge Congolese defender. I think he’d be a terrific plan b defender and he’d certainly make us more solid from set pieces. I’m not sure he’s the one though… I think we’re more likely to be interested in Gary Cahill. That seems to have gone quiet, no doubt the Daily Mail have just landed their story for tomorrow!
The Independent has confidently predicted Eboue, Denilson and Rosicky will be on their way. I’d love that to be the case, somehow though, I’m not quite so sure. I’d love it if some of our players cared enough about the game to seek employment elsewhere even if it was for a pay cut! I’m not going to excite myself at the prospect though. I don’t think there will be an overhaul this summer. I reckon there will be talk of it, we’ll all re-sign for our season tickets, then we’ll listen to the manager justify his project all summer… bad times.
Right, see you in the comments!
