QUICK POST today. Why? Because I control the word count, not you.
So the picture above, from the Daily Mirror, confirmed our suspicions. Jose Mourinho has indeed, totally shafted us. He’s sold us the OTHER Petr Cech. His brother, who broke his metatarsal, like, 3 times as a kid… mans can hardly walk. What a devastation. That wiley old bugger Jose has done Ivan up like a lightly grilled Scottish Kipper.
Right, so the BIG news is that Benzema was apparently given a call by Arsene Wenger, says some two bob Spanish Radio station.
Let me break this down for you.
- For starters, Wenger would be breaking many rules by calling players about a move.
- Secondly, Wenger doesn’t break rules.
- Thirdly, it’s a two bob radio station.
I reckon we’ll go for a major name this summer, just not sure we’d move for Benzema. He’s the most pointless link every summer. He never leaves. He’s part of the Madrid furniture. I don’t even think Madrid have another striker lined up? I mean, it’s not looking good. Is Rafa that mental?
However. I would love it if he did join.
Juventus are thinking about dropping a bid for Mesut. I mean, I’d do that deal if it involved Paul P coming the other way. Have a very strong feeling that’s about as likely as me looking trim in a new Arsenal shirt.
Nice to see Raheem Sterling acting like a little shit. I mean, will no one tell the boy that commercial deals are generally linked to how likeable you are as a player? Players who have no redeeming features tend to do less better on billboard posters. I really don’t think he’s thought this through.
ALSO. He’s only a kid. Tarnished with the greed brush forever. It’s not good. I love him as a player, I’d love him at Arsenal, but my love for him if he joined would only be football deep. That’s a shame. He’d never get the full penetrative Pedro love he might have had if he was a nice lad.
Right, how about Crystal Palace signing Yohann Cabaye? Pretty mental right? That’s a sign of the leagues strength these days. They’ve just splashed out for a major name. We could have put him in our side for that price… we know Wenger likes him. Maybe he’s ignored him because he has bigger / younger kippers to fry?
ALSO, how about Robin Van Persie moving to Fener? I mean, top player. Only 31 years old. Cast off to Turkey? What a fall from grace. I mean, I know Turkey is a beautiful country, and it now boasts a Soho house. But come on? Turkey? For football? Let’s be real here. You have to be at least 35! Surely a cheeky move to Italy would have been more fun?
Look. I just don’t get it. I also don’t get how Fener have sooooo much cash. Those guys and Gala seem to bring on some pretty hefty earners!
Here’s a nice article about Gourcuff… a player we all thought would join us, mainly because he was French and mysterious.
I think that’s all I have today… bar this kid below who has all the banter.
