Happy good morning to you all!
Guess what, Diaby is a doubt for tomorrow… because of another injury.
Bloody hell. He really is blessed by having a manager like Arsene who is likely to keep him on. It’s really charity stuff, which is sweet, and it makes me feel all warm inside to know at £3.5m a year footballer is being given more money for nothing, but it does waste a squad number.
I think another notable absentee is Arteta. Not due back until the 17th of May. Should he be signing a new deal? Maybe. If he has coaching in mind. Those La Masia boys do pretty well as managers. Could be one of the future.
In other news, we’ve sorted a deal with Chile so they won’t pinch our superstar so he misses the world cup final. I still find it amazing that clubs don’t have power to overrule FIFA on stuff like this. It’s where the money is. Apparently the Champions League Final could cause even more problems with international managers well within their rights to keep people from playing in it to join up with their international camps.
Arsenal don’t feel they’ll have to give Jack W £150k p/w this summer. Would love to hear that conversation.
‘We want £150k a week for Jack?’
‘Cause he’s English and stuff’
… because that’s the only way the conversation can go? He’s nowhere near a £150k a week player. We should under no circumstances cave to pressure unless it’s related to exceptional performance. He’s injured too often, he’s not doing it on the pitch and he earns a tonne of cash already!.
I won’t bloody have it. No way.
What else is going on?
Not a lot.
Enjoy your day today and stop putting meeting notes in people’s diaries for Monday. It’s a no work day!
