Bloody hell, Quintero. Quin-bloody-who?
Apparently Arsenal are close to agreeing a deal for the Colombian attacking midfielder for £20m. Seems like a crazy move for me, but his agent has come out and said that his player is flying to Arsenal to thrash out a deal for the starlet.
Not sure what to think.
So what do we know about him? Well, he’s a technically gifted left footed number ten who scores the odd spectacular goal. He doesn’t have much of an appearance record to go by, only 4 starts last season, but he did play quite well in The Emirates Cup. He loves a flick, a bit like Cristiano did back in the day. He’s a long termer if he is coming in, well, not massively long term, but I’d imagine he’ll need a couple of seasons to get up to speed.
Feels like an odd one if true. I don’t know enough about him. However, I’m excited because he’s expensive.
There. I said it. Think what you will, I don’t care.
Steven Gerrard has been pushing his contorted confused face into our business.
“I would have been really sad and disappointed to see Luis go to Arsenal. With all due respect to them, I said to him that he was too good for Arsenal. I said if you score 30 goals for us and win the PFA player of the year, the press player of the year – I knew he was going to win them – I told him Real or Barcelona will come for you.”
Steven, what’s that all about? I mean, on the face of it, yeah, maybe you were right. However, looking at how the tables have turned, I’d say that you might be eating those words by the end of the season. If we land two more names, we’re competing for the top honours. I’d say that Liverpool really are going to struggle this season. I’m not sure about the calibre of some of the signings, and clearly, the manager knows nothing about a Champions League schedule.
It’s a tough year ahead Steven, and know this, I’ll be on hand with that comment to ram it back down your throat at the earliest opportunity.
That’ll show you. It’ll surely keep you up at night.
Mad times for Carl Jenks. He’s made the move over to West Ham for a season under big same. Scary stuff. It did Jack the world of good for a little bit. Rumour has it, twas big Sam who taught him how to smoke a fag like a boss. Just a rumour.
SAY NO TO SMOKING CARL.
In other news, Theo Walcott had a photo with Alexis Sanchez
Bloody hell, that’s what it’s come to. Looks like Theo is more pleased to be in the pic than Alexis. I think Theo has probably accosted him in the shower… bad form Theo. Let the man get some clobber on.
Right, that’s all I’ve time for.
