Arsenal news is looking bleak this morning. Here’s my view on news. If your site has never contributed a genuine piece of original news to the World Wide Web, you shouldn’t be considered for the news section of Google. I don’t want to name names, but search it today and tell me what percentage of news sources you’d class as proper outlets?
I had to go to The Daily Mail to get my stories today. You know what I found? Theo Walcott doing his wife and saintly reputation proud by being a good boy in Vegas. For gods sake Theo, when are you going to man up and get amongst it. Vegas is about debauchery… as is earning £100k a week.
‘Theo eats a sandwich as he watches friends have fun’
Put the sandwich down Theo, put it down and have a serious word with yourself. George Best is rolling in his grave…
So, as you can see… I’m struggling today.
We could talk about Wanyama for a bit. The boy played a good ninety minutes against Barca, so he’s obviously off. Playing in Scotland minus a Rangers must be horrendous, so i don’t blame him at all. I’m just not convinced by his game. He’s not very disciplined and he’s only 21. Not the sort of signing I’d bundle in the progress bucket.
I wonder what was in Theo’s sandwich?
News around Europe is also pretty dry. Dortmund pulled the plug on Lewandowski’s dream to move to Bayern Munich. According to Raphael Honigstein, he’ll likely stay at Dortmund and go there on a free next summer as he has a deal with them. It’d be nice to think we could make him see the light and join us… but at the moment, seeing past the allure of Bayern must be tough….
Did he butter one side of the bread?
AC Milan have thrown the door open for Napoli to buy El Shaarawy. The young Milan striker has been impressive this season, though it has to be said, he did go on the record to turn down Manchester City a day ago. Still, it’s worth putting his name on a list… just because it’s a dull day.
There’s a story in The Times about Wayne Rooney and the fear he has around the United fans backlash next season. He’s also worried about where he figures in their plans. A positive story from an Arsenal perspevtive. For me, he’s killed it withy the United fanbase… just like Adebayor did the second time he started mouthing off. I just can’t understand how a player of 27 can make so many badly judged decisions. You’d seriously consider sacking your management team if you found yourself in the current mess he’s in.
Was the sandwich debauchee… two different kinds of meat perhaps?
Cesc has come out and poured cold water on the dreams of many Arsenal fans… he did however leave the door cracked.
“If Barcelona said that they didn’t want me, that would be another thing. But what I truly want is to triumph at Barcelona. That’s been my dream since I was a kid.”
This story is more complex than the one being laid on the table. There’s definitely a desire our side to make him an Arsenal player and there have been some flippant remarks Barca’s side about Cesc being allowed to go if he wants to. The deal is simple, if Cesc wants Arsenal he has to tell the world he only wants us. In exactly the same way he did to us. Whether that will happen is a different question altogether. Depends how desperate they are for cash…
If he’s not available, we should be tabling an £18m bid for Alcantara. The Spain Under 21 captain has a buyout clause we could activate. He’s a talent. If he really wants to move, we should put our names in the mixer.
That was a painful post to put together… I’m off for a Theo Club Sandwich buttered one side complimented by a plate of man up… catch you tomorrow.
