Hey, happy Friday you absolute darlings.
On the menu today is something well seasoned, expensive and useful.
Who’s that? Eto’o.
He’s leaving Chelsea because they think he’s useless, but he’s not having it.
I said he’s not facking having it.
He wants to stay in London and prove he’s not an past it African superstar with a date of birth that is questionable.
I’d love him at Arsenal. He’s a name. He’s a legend. He’s a perfect option from the bench. He’s so outrageously rich, I’m sure we could pick him up on a pretty good deal. If he could contribute 10 goals to next season, that’s ten more goals than Sanogo offered this season. You also have the benefit of his experience filtering into our ‘fingers crossed’ superstar signing as well as teaching Sanogo where that damn goal is…
‘No Yaya, not there, and pull your shorts up you silly boy!’
I’d be bang up for a move like that. It adds a bit of seriousness to our squad. Even though he’s old, he’s still an exciting name. You don’t forget how to finish… do you?
No you don’t.
In other news, Wenger has signed on for three more years. Here’s a shocker, Bob Wilson is pleased.
‘This is a guy who works 24 hours a day all year around’
‘He hates to lose and revolutionised the game in the country. Some say he has too much power but a guy who dedicates himself to it like he does, you cherish.’
I don’t cherish his control or power. Nor do I care that he gives it his all. I earn about half of what he does and I’m working the weekend. Plenty of people work jobs they hate 7 days a week.
No doubt this deal will have no stipulations, no KPIs, no ‘look, if you don’t improve, let’s part waves’… just three years of ‘one or two players, we’re nearly there’.
Facepalm. I’ll have to reset my two year counter to three years. Arsene Wenger, the never ending manager.
Another short one. So how about you do some work and tell me who our back up striker should be this season?
