Good morning. Bad news to start with. A teenager Arsenal didn’t allow to express himself on the pitch has left the club to join Manchester City.
“They allow me to express myself on the pitch & the quality of everything is high this is why I’ve decided to sign for……. Manchester City.”
Manchester City have offered him a three year deal and the chance to express himself on the pitch.
Being chained to Arsenal’s strict game plan was clearly too much for Denzeil Boadu.
Roy Hodgson has come out and choke slammed the notion that Jack Wilshere will be playing in the U21 Championship this summer.
“We want the under-21s to do well and would like to give the strongest possible team.
“But it is quite clear that there are certain under-21 players who are now firmly established in the England A team squad.
“That is where I expect them to stay.”
Good work Roy. That said, I see no reason why Chamberlain shouldn’t go. He’s hardly played this year. It’d be great experience for him regardless of how many games he’s played in the seniors. He needs match practice. I’m sure he’ll have more than enough in the tank to make it.
Nacho Monreal has come out and laid the smack down on Spurs hopes of finishing inside the top four.
“It’s logical that people are talking because the situation [with Tottenham ahead in the table] is not as it should be. We have to use our energy for the matches. If you are thinking of what people are saying, you are wasting that energy. You have to concentrate on the next match. Every fixture is now a final we have to win. That has to be our mentality. I’m sure we will put it right,”
I think he had a hand in one of the Spain goals in the week. He’s looked pretty solid since joining. He’s far more interested in defending. Dependable, experienced and technically gifted. Hopefully he’ll force Gibbs up a level. We need that sort of competition all over the park. Hopefully he’ll start this weekend against Reading.
Final news piece was Galatasaray want to reverse choke slam Gervinho into their squad next season. Word on the street has it that the Turkish club are not being paid an appearance fee for this years Emirates Cup… no… they’re being given a Gervinho to compliment their Eboue. I’d be over the moon if it happened. Gervinho hasn’t hit the heights many of us didn’t think he could reach and it turns out he’s more sensitive than a face after a dry Bic shave. Move him on… bring in Messi.
Have a great Thursday. It’s Bank Holiday… which is a Royal conspiracy to make people spunk all their money up the wall over the 4 day weekend. Don’t disappoint people. Spend like you were a King.
