Arsenal are now nearly into the done deal territory on Debuchy. The French right back is coming in for a report £11m. Massive expense for a 29 year old (in a months time) and surely a helluva a lot more expensive than keeping the other French right back, but whatever. As far as I’m convened it’s like for like.
The concern is that squad wise, we’re like for like in last season. We didn’t have enough players to sustain a challenge last season and currently, we don’t have enough to sustain a challenge this season. I appreciate the World Cup is taking front and centre but at the same time, my eyes inform me other clubs are doing plenty of business.
As we speak, we’ve added no pace to our front line, no third choice centre back and no defensive midfield. I do hope Wenger isn’t shooting for the finish line again in the hope he’ll snare a mega bargain like Ozil.
We’ll see, panic stations don’t start until post Emirates Cup.
I think it’s quite sweet people think our business is waiting for a kit launch on Thursday. I also think it’s sweet that Puma are posting out teasers of what it might look like. It’s a bit like being given a teaser of a Christmas present with no wrapping paper.
HOOPED SOCKS. Puma are winning already. Also, I’ll have one to give away. JD sports said that’s cool. So I’ll think about a competition… maybe speedo related… even for the ladies.
I was forced to watch big brother the other day, I was told one of the girls on it was a hooker Wayne Rooney had dealt with.
Tasteful show… tasteful man.
This evening it’s mostly Brazil vs Germany on my mind. I hope Germany win because deep down, I believe I am probably part German. That belief stems from my love of Per Mertesacker. I also think Brazil are terribly clunky. I don’t think I’d have any joy watching Brazil lift the World Cup. To be honest, I don’t think any of the teams in the last 4 are particularly deserving. Which is a shame considering how incredible the tournament has been so far.
Anyway, good luck to the Arsenal boys!
