Good mourning. What? It’s a sad day. Not even that goat can spark the serotonin. Bacary Sagna has left for pastures new. He’s heading to Manchester City to play out his days on £140k a week. That’s a real shame. I wish him the best, but only as a person. Footballing wise, I wish him a healthy yet average season.
Watching all the tards on Twitter slag him and his exceptionally attractive wife off is beyond reprehension. If you celebrate that type of behaviour, you’re a joke. You are pointless.
Sagna gave the best 8 years of his career to Arsenal with the rerun of an FA Cup. He never complained, he never let his form drop and he always gave his all showcasing himself to be an absolute professional. As I’ve said many times before, I did some work with one of the charities he’s a representative for, they couldn’t speak highly enough of his selfless enthusiasm.
Good luck Bacary, one of the best right backs I’ve had the pleasure of cheering on.
In other news, Cesc to Arsenal stories are hotting up. Would be a slightly bemusing spend of £30m. I mean, I get that he’s world class, but the old adage of ‘you can never have too many world class players’ falls flat on it’s face in this instance. Where would Cesc play? And please don’t say in Arteta’s role, because Arteta doesn’t have the legs for that role nor was Arteta naturally a defensive midfielder.
It would make no sense to me. What makes sense is pace. We have the suppliers, no one to supply to. Look at Liverpool and how they flood forward. If we had that sort of pace, with more legs and power for tracking back, we’re in a good place.
Just not sure signing players for sentimentality reasons is wise. Also, if what I’ve heard is going down happens, I struggle to believe we’ll be going for Cesc because that’d be a lot of cash spunked. Again, I know nothing about Cesc. I’m second guessing a manager who loaned Kim Kallstrom when we needed a striker.
The cost of bringing in a world class striker, a wide player with blistering pace, a holding midfielder, a right back… then all the squad players he needs is not conducive to another number 10. Simply put, this summer, even to remain on a level footing requires 6 players. If Wenger wants to compete, he’s going to need to buy about 9 players. That there is my concern… do we think there is any chance he’ll do that?
We. Shall. See.
Right, that’s me done you sexy beasts.
