Morning people! How’s the extended weekend treating you? Good I hope, the weather has been pretty damn fine.
Onto football news, Arsene Wenger has been talking on French TV about how much he likes Grenier of Lyon. The attacking midfielder is on his radar apparently. To fuel the fire that little bit more, we also have one of our explayers managing that club… I’m not sure how that fuels the fire, but I just pretended it did to keep you interested.
Now, for me, the only attacking midfielder we should be tracking this summer is Cesc Fabregas. He’d be the re-sign of the century. There are rumours United are going hard for him, if that’s the case, there’s no reason we can’t be in for him. We can afford his fee and wages… and how could we not be in for super, super talent like him?
In German news, Podolski has confirmed his summer intentions lay with us.
“I feel very comfortable and I am completely satisfied with my first year in England. I have no intention to leave the club. Rumours are rumours and I cannot stop them,”
He had an ok first season, but he certainly didn’t live up to his big name billing. He’s a bit in no mans land as a striker, not quite big enough or fast enough… plus, a little bit lazy. Still, he banged in some goals and he did some good work out wide.
The women brought back a trophy after dismantling Bristol 3-0 in the FA Cup final. Great work from them… Hopefully a bit of inspiration for the boys!
Right, as there’s no news out there today, that’s your lot.
Catch you tomorrow…
