News, news, news… where did you go?
I can’t keep opening every post with this… but it’s true, there is nothing going on. What happened to the journalists? They’re supposed to make things up when things are quiet. Then we can jump on what they’ve made up and bemoan the lack of credibility on Fleet Street.
Basically all I have is a story about Thomas Vermaelen stating he’s going to stay at Arsenal forever. He has a house here, he’s happy, he loves London. Super stuff.
“I love London. I’ve got a house there, I’m happy there and I don’t see any reason to ever leave the club.”
What a nice thing to hear. London is an amazing place to live. If only Robin thought the same. Hey, maybe he does? That contract is still rumbling on unsigned. It doesn’t sound like anyone has approached him officially. You never know…
I just hope we’ve put a deadline on this whole debacle. I said as much last summer and we left it right until the end to flog our two best players. A total nonsense. The only player we really needed to do that with was Nasri. With Theo and Robin, we should put a deadline on whether they want to stay or go now. If they say in two weeks they’re not going to re-sign we should go out, sign there replacements then put them out on the open market. We need to have everything sorted before preseason this year to ensure we have the best chance of a successful opening to the season.
Last year it took a good 4 weeks for the influx of new players to start making an impact on the squad. I hope the club note that this summer.
Other than that, there’s not much else to thrash out!
Have a good day.
