Internet be working my friends, but what does it matter? There’s very little going in. Higauin’s 6 year old sister is keeping tight lipped about her older brothers next move. There was a story in The Times yesterday about Perez of Madrid using the Argentine as a make weight for Bale. For me, that doesn’t really work… being a make weight only works if the make weight wants to go to the said club… sadly, Spurs aren’t a big club, nor do they boast a top 4 trophy.
… as much as we hate Top 4 mediocrity, it sure as hell beats SpursDay night football with the riff raff of Europe.
Nik B is off to Frankfirt to resurrect his career. As much as he’s derided by many for being an arrogant dreamer… at least he cared about playing for Arsenal. I know last season he was really hacked off that he was pretty much the second best striker at Arsenal and he was shipped out. It all went down the pan for him when he threw a hissy fit after being bombed out of the Carling Cup final squad. I think he’s very capable. He’s skilled on the ball for a big man and he possesses all the physical assets needed to conquer the game as a plan B striker. Give me a player who complains about not getting game time over Denilson or JD all day long…
Andrey also left for Zenit. A player who gets it in the neck for laziness… yet he was the only player to turn up to every training session last season. Under used… which in part was down to him… but I still find it staggering Arsene would persist with Song and Denilson despite being flawed as players but had no time for Andrey.
There’s an odd piece on the The Sports Direct news channel about Arsenal moving for Lewandowski. We all know his main preference is Bayern this summer and he’s been told he can’t go there. I’m not sure Arsenal would cut it. The whole story appears to be made up. Brands moving into the news space isn’t my cup of tea. I’m guessing they have a news site to support their search results for retail… and I’m also guessing Mike Ashley isn’t overly fussed about stories that reflect badly on the reputation of his shop… so keep an eye out for anything that looks dodgy from there… they’re in it for money, not love.
It’s not long until the transfer window opens… then we’ll find out how busy Ivan and co have been.
