I asked the question yesterday but got no answer, how is it we signed Podolski mid season, outside a transfer window, and got away with announcing it?
Now unless we signed him in January, I can’t work out why we were allowed to do that in the second half of the season.
Though we could have signed him in January but agreed not to mention it, but why would we do that?
If we agreed with Koln midway through the window that he would sign in June, then why can’t we do that with someone else to stop the price going nuts in January when the whole world knows we have £35billion to spend?
I predicted in the summer that Real or Barca would go tits up, I’m still predicting that and with Valencia looking at selling Soldado, Athletico offering Falcao and City after Busquets and 2 others it already looks like Iberia is on it way to the Spanish equivalent of Carey Street. (Bankruptcy courts)
Ha, ha I just hope we got paid for Song is all, the fact they still haven’t paid for Cesc leads me to believe we can just take him back, it would also explain him gushing over us of late and he still has his house in what he calls the greatest City on earth, London.
Now I know people will say we don’t need Cesc now, well nor did Barca when they signed him last season, that would be like saying who needs Ronaldo when you have Messi, Cesc would be an awesome addition, blimey we could even play him up front, think about that!
I know people will call him names, such as greedy but he’s no more greedy than some of our management is he? And he took a pay cut to get away from project youth, ha, ha I gave up my season tickets for that!
So I think it’s a case of watch this space, if it happens then we all know Wenger will say he knew and that’s why he didn’t spend all his money this summer.
That bloke is worse than John Terry and David Beckham combined in the ‘taking the credit for stuff ‘stakes.
Anyway we’ll all know soon enough, and if we can cherry pick bargain basements from Spain this Christmas that would be awesome for so many reasons.
With Financial Fair Play coming in next season, we may be the only EPL team that could capitalise on that happening, ooh we can only dream!
The Lopez rumours are gathering pace, they are beginning to sound like the Podolski ones, but as well the M’Vila ones (sorry Arsene) If they are true, I hope we are getting the right one and not doing what we did with Hazard and Gervinho, if you get my drift.
I read how many players we have out and listen to the excuses, now because Oxo had to play Wednesday instead of Tuesday I’m hearing how tough it is to recuperate, my goodness, think how many times Adams and Merson had 4 pints before a game and had blinders, are we treating players like babies these days?
To finish on my cost of tickets deal of yesterday, many people did the ‘actual cost’ permutations to include cup games etc, but how can kids afford that? And the future of Arsenal is todays kids, because they become tomorrows adults and it’s only todays adults that can afford the tickets.
Go work that one out! Even when I was a kid Arsenal had Schoolboy enclosures (sorry girls PC wasn’t around then) I remember going in there once for an Arsenal vs Huddersfield Cup game, I got away with it (boyish good looks) but I had to sneak the beer in, in those days you could drink on the terraces! Just not the Schoolboy ones!
Imagine that people, football, beer, cheap prices and trophies and all at the same time. I can, I was there!
Perhaps it’s time to think about the kids Arsene, you’re good at that, remember!
Have a great day today Grover’s, mañana I do a pre-match post, remember them?
