Well good morning! What a game last night. No wait, it’s tonight. I totally thought it was a Wednesday yesterday. What a tool.
Right, what have we today?
Well my friends, many LOLs going on at the moment.
There’s not much going on with the transfer stuff, mainly because we don’t have a plan.
The centre back thing is pottering along like it has been for weeks. We’ve known since May that Vermaelen was going because he was aggrieved at the way the club treated him.
Yep, that’s a pretty long time ago. We’ve still not snared anyone to replace him. It’s a very worrying scenario that’s not being met with the type of urgency it should be. Why would Arsene feel that urgency? He reports to no one…
On the striker situation, it’s pretty clear that not a lot is going on there. Rumours coming out of Croatia that we’re interested in snapping up Nicola Zigic.
Oh dear… oh dear oh dear.
Pretty hilarious in a way. Falcao is available on loan for a season and we’re sniffing around a dog average striker who Birmingham let go. Typical Arsenal. We have an absolute stack of cash in the bank. We could afford to offer £50m for Cavani, we could afford whatever the loan deal would be for Falcao… we could hound pretty much any club in Europe for one of their strikers if we wanted to… but no… not Arsenal, they’d prefer to give the hapless Sanogo a go for three months. I mean, outside his lack of experience, he’s an injury calamity just like Diaby.
As for the mystical CDM we’ve been hunting for… what’s going on. In the whole of European / World football, our awful scouting network can’t russle up a single options. It’s unbelievable how poor that is. We’ve been trying to replace that role since Alex Song left. Where are our scouts looking? Why aren’t they looking in Eastern Europe? Why aren’t they looking at the bankrupt Spanish clubs? Why can’t they unearth good players these days?
… because they’re as backward as our fitness department.
I honestly can’t fathom what’s going on with Arsene, his behaviour is completely at odds with a top flight manager who has a desire to make things happen.
You can change your contract, your fitness coach, you chief exec… but your old manager and his old way will always catch up with you.
Arsene Wenger is already gearing us up for what we should expect this season. More of the same, baffling, totally off the wall behaviours that have seen us progress very little over the last 10 years.
Right, I’m done, I’m depressing myself.
See you at the game tonight…
Oh, Danny Welbeck… shoot, me, now.
UNITED LAST NIGHT! Hilarious… just hilarious.
