So, what’s new today?
Well, Abou Diaby is injured for three months. What? Oh right. You said what’s new!
So much bantz and we’re barely 25 words in!
We’re beyond a joke now. I hope we don’t offer him a hopeful 3 year deal. He’s earned an absolute mint out of us, which is fine, because that’s his contract. I do question the thought process that made us give him such a massive deal. He’s never been a fit player, even before that horrendous injury. It’s sad and people say I’m brutal on Diaby, but how fussed can you be about a man who is way richer than 99% of the country for doing very little. I’m more upset for the people who can’t get a living wage working at our club.
Having a generous approach to players should extend to everyone…
So Lukas Podolski is being urged to leave Arsenal by Lowe of Germany. I don’t really see the problem here. I’d leave. However, if I couldn’t land myself a £90k a week deal elsewhere, I might not leave. You’re 29, that’s old in football terms and £90k a week is a lot of cash. It’s a shame we don’t use him more. Or even really have a role for him coming off the bench… kind of like Ole Gunnar used to have for United.
There are some other pretty bland stories. We’re be linked to anyone who looks like a body. I’ve no idea who we’re going to land this January, but don’t be expecting names that come from the top clubs, because those clubs won’t sell and kill themselves before the summer.
Right, I’m being shouted into a meeting… see you tomorrow!
