Talking of which I have to say I love the new away kit, about time, something I can wear! I really like it, it has no redcurrent. And yes, it’s all about me!!!
Thing is with Arsenal they are so tight, they never want to have players model it that are destined to leave, I haven’t seen our captain in any of the new kits but I have seen Nasri and the one of Vermaelen says to me that he will be next seasons Captain, I am now officially an KKB, the Kit Knows Best!
The continual Cesc debacle is really becoming boring, when Wenger was crowing about Cesc signing a long term contract, and Gazidas was telling us last year how important it was to tie all our best players to long term contracts I wrote a post saying they aren’t worth the paper they are written on, so am I right?
Damn right I was, if cesc has a 4 year contract then he’s staying, if we shift him out because Barca have decided they want him, then we should do it on our terms.
Here’s what I would do. We asked for £60mil, they laughingly offered £27mil. Ok, we should now say if you sign Cesc with Xabi and Iniesta in the team, he will be the cover for Xabi, therefore you don’t need Alcantara, so we’ll take him plus £25mil, but we want the cash, now and not when you feel like it, now.
Do that and he’s yours, don’t and he will stay, in the reserves if need be, but without the armband, he has disrespected that and he should lose it.
Failing that, transfer list him and sell him to the highest bidder, he may not like it but I don’t like what he’s been doing, and I sure as hell don’t like what they have been doing and frankly his feelings are unimportant to me and my beloved Arsenal.
Arsenal it’s time to stand up and act like men, we aren’t Barcas bitches, so we shouldn’t act like we are. Cesc for me is either injury prone or he just doesn’t fancy it any more. Either way it’s time to close this sorry chapter.
Sign Mata as well and we have the whole midfield covered, give the Cesc role to Nasri, I think we’d play better, faster football that way. I would stick him on Ebay but Talkshite already did that and I would hate to upset anyone by doing that again.
I have this problem if current or ex players slag off my team, Denilson did that, so for me as someone on the payroll he should be dissed, the way Pedro did that yeserday was funny, well at least I thought it was, if people thought that brought down the tone of the blog, they should take that up with the one who started it, Denilson. Pedro was upset that some thought it wasn’t very nice to Denilson, he has called him and they are now going to become flatmates. I’m putting the flat on Ebay. Anyway, that was yesterday, today is well today, so we’ll move on (See the final bid here and the Q&A here).
Nina has gone on the attack, good for her, but if she felt that way then she should have sold her shares to Usmanov, not Kroenke.
We need to sign Cahill and Samba, Mata, Alcantara, Benzema and Gervinho or Hazard, but I can’t see it, and for me I don’t know enough about Gervinho to offer a proper opinion, the rest I do though and as our main problem lies at the back, pay what we need to and let’s get on with pre-season, £30mil for a fantastic defence is nothing, the Mancs just spent £20mil on a kid and look what City spent on defenders last season.
Stop being so mean with our money Arsene, it costs us, if you want to save money, stop give players extended contracts they walk out on.
Time to try Vermaelen as our new DM, him or Kozzer, either would be an improvement and speed up our passage of play, if we bought Cahill and Samba we would have CB and DM options coming out of our earholes.
Time to get rid of the deadwood, time to sort out cesc once and for all and time to win some silverware.
Start today Arsene, Cesc wants out, make it happen but if you don’t play hardball and make a deal for us, what final respect I have for you as a dealmaker will vanish.
Now I know Geoff from Le-Grove doesn’t feature high on your list of priorities, but it should, as I am an Arsenal fan and all who read this blog that are too, we can all see it, we are all hurting, you made a start with a decent away kit, finish the job and get us a team capable of cleaning up, any of the above would be good, all of the above would be great.
Have a top day grovers, let’s see what today brings us!
