So, a pretty historic day over in America. The Supreme Court ruled that no state could outlaw same sex marriage.
Finally. Finally some sense in the world.
I find it incredible there’s still a debate in the about who people shack up with.
I mean, the LGBT community will soon get over the novelty of marriage, then they’ll realise that they’ve just opened a can of worms on themselves because marriage is something to be feared, but hey, that’s life. Point is, they deserve the same choices in life as everyone else. Equal society. It doesn’t matter who you are, what your preferences are, we’re all people.
I’m sure there will parties galore today, Pride is kicking off, I’m pretty sure the Gay Gooners will be there ripping it up. Hopefully the day won’t be ruined online by the usual smattering of online ignorance.
But hey, it’s online, where ignorance still manages to find a voice. So don’t expect anything else. I just hope people have the guts to call our bigotry if they see it. Bullying and sniping online will hopefully be something we look back and laugh at in years to come, the only way it stops is if people stand up for each other. Something, I’m glad to say, I’m seeing more of these days. Power to you all.
Anyway, if you’re attending the parade and you’re a Gooner, make sure you go and say hi! I’ll no doubt be floating around there later, any excuse to dress up.
Right, ONTO THE FOOTBALL.
So, Cech is basically done. We’re winning there. There are a few Arsenal fans fearing the Mourinho games. Like, some how, he knows something… did he drop polonium into his beer? Will Chelsea deliver him in pieces in a butchers van?
Fear not. He’s fine. He’s a major move that Jose didn’t want because he knows how good he is. He’s coming to us because he’s pals with Roman. We’ve been doing this deal since before the Cup Final. It’s just dragging a bit. Once it’s done, we can celebrate a masterstroke in the transfer market.
I don’t have much of a steer on players, though from what I can piece together, a striker is going to be top of the priority list. Not so sure on the midfielder part. Morgan looks to have agreed a United move… and it’d be a big shout to chase Vidal at £22m. He’s 28 years old, that’s very unArsene like when we have so many younger players in the middle already.
Troubling thing with the striker role is that I can’t see many top contenders? I’d been told that last season, Wenger had earmarked Reus through the centre, I guess, much in the same way Suarez plays through the middle. If we were going to deal with anyone, he’d certainly be a major front runner for me!
… outside that. Where are we looking? Benzema? I mean jeez, that one never gets old, does it! Benteke? Maybe if he could string a season together. Aubameyang looks a decent player, loaded with pace, he managed 22 goals in 40 appearances for a terrible Dortmund side. Not sure he’s a massive upgrade?
It’s a tough position, be excited to see where we go on this one.
Also, we’ll be seeing a lot of movement out of the club. Not sure who, but they’ll be working hard on the #DeadwoodClub. So say goodbye to some of your faves. If you’re past it or costing a lot of cash, then say goodbye.
Chezzer, Arteta, Flamini, Tomas, Gibbs, Jenks, Lukas, Campbell… please say it’s not Laurent!
Anyway, quite a list of potentials there. Quite a big saving to the wage bill of we move them on.
Right, have a great day!
See you in the comments.
