Where to start eh? I leave the country for 2 days and nothing happens, in fact the only exciting thing I can report is that my iPad has learnt the spelling of Gervinho…
Well that’s a lie, the massive news this morning is Arsenal have killed their career in property flogging off a load of Emirates land for a bottom line profit of £25million (according the AST)! 2500 new homes will be generated at prices totally out if the reach if your average punter… But who cares, I love looking at expensive property!
This reminds me of a horrible story one of my friends told me. He sacked his girlfriend who was quite successful, they split the profit of their own property… this woman scorned did what no man would want to see… She bought an Arsenal flat with the proceeds.
Burner, I’d rather find out my ex was seeing Jermaine Jenas…
Does that mean we have enough money to make a few signings of intent? You bet! This is great news, let’s hope Wenger welcomes this as a bonus, not as a threat to his purist notion of not spending.
Talking of spending, it’s clear that Typically it takes arsenal 90% longer than anyone else to negotiate transfers. Gazidis has probably tried to use most things on his desk as sweetners… Pencil sharpeners, rulers… Cheese and onion crisps. At the end of the day, it’ll come down to Market rate and whether we’ll pay it.
If we don’t, there’s always a nutter with a cheque book ready and waiting with a 40% better offer. Kenny, I’m looking at you son! Interesting that I’ve heard in his personal life he’s tighter than an amazon gift voucher from Arsene Wenger!
This Douglas Costas offer sounds interesting… It’s very hard to know exactly wheat we’re up to… What we can decipher is that we’re after a wide man, a centre back and a forward.
I think there are many smoke screens going off at the moment… So it’s going to be hard to predict anything!
It’ll be interesting to see if we do play Vermaelen at left back, for me, that’s not a great option. You’re wasting a top centre back there. I’ve also heard he’s a horrible left back room a Grover who used to work out there.
I was told that when he was played as a DM for Belgium he was excellent. That really would be interesting! Tenacious, fast, good on the ball, mobile and super going forward. JD and Kozzer were ok at the back last year, with a bit more coaching and preparation next year I see no reason why Vermaelen can’t be given a new role.
Wenger could realise his dream of having Song as a centre back!
Talking of midfield, how would you feel about Joey Barton? Ignoring the fact he’d shank you if you jeered him in the ground, what do you think of his on pitch persona? What about his skill? For me, if he wasn’t a scum bag, he’d be at a top club… Simple as that.
Also, I heard that Sagna’s comments about Cesc that he denied ARE the comments he thinks in private. I think most of the squad expect Cesc to leave this summer. If we can pick up on that from the stands, you’d be naive to think the players aren’t picking up on that vibe from inside the club.
God bless that 8 year deal… God bless it a thousand times!
Off topic, if someone can tell me the last time an iPad crashed a Ryanair plane I’d be fascinated. The old guy sitting next to me is enraged my simless tablet is on during s flight. Muppet. What would Joey B do?
Back to soccer ball. Not much else to talk about really.
I’m really interested to see who else in Europe has the faith in the dross Arsene Wenger has had for the past 5 years. Really, they should be going to equivalent clubs in other leagues… Or at least batting around that area. Who will take Denilson and Eboue? Who will take a punt on Vela? Will anyone bid for Rocky or Squillaci? Who’d be mad enough to put Almunia in their first team?
Other managers know a good player when they see one… We’ll see just how misguided his faith was eh!
I’d also like to know if Wenger has given up on an experienced keeper? If I was him I’d have a back up and he wouldn’t be Fabianski. Thomas Sorenson would be a good signing, maybe even Schwarzer again? Not necessarily for the 1st 11 but there just in case secondseasonitis kicks in with our bolshy number one.
I really like chezzer, all I’m saying is preparation for the worst is always a great idea when dealing with kids.
Anyway Saturday is here, much Peroni is yet to be drunk!
Keep it messy and embarrassing Grover’s and know that 1 in 5 mushrooms eaten in England are Irish.
