So if you were wondering whether Lord Harris and his comments were planned with the managers consent in mind, you had your answer…
“He’s gone a bit overboard. It’s not true,”
He hasn’t really gone overboard, has he, Arsene? We blew £43m on Mesut Ozil. There aren’t too many player exchanging hands for more money than that. Factor in new sponsorship deals, more Champions League money and better Premier League rights… and, well, we have the funds to blow pretty much any club out of the water for players.
There are some pretty hot rumours flying around in the ITK space (the good ITK space). Wenger is apparently quietly confident about bringing in Benzema to Madrid next year. Still doesn’t make a helluva lot of sense from their perspective. But look, you have to face it, at Madrid, if the face doesn’t fit, then you’re always at risk of being booted. Benzema has a lot of hot model girlfriends and he’s a playboy. Never quite a Galactico. Always rumoured to be on the way out. He’d be an immense signing and he’d make us contenders for the league for sure.
MAKE IT HAPPEN ARSENE.
Aaron Ramsey did a massive dirty in our faces when asked about being linked with Barca.
“They did the treble last year and it’s just really nice to be linked with one of the best clubs in the world.
“One day I would like to go over to Spain to play just to see what it’s like and to experience that.
“But at the moment I’m with Arsenal and I feel like this Arsenal team can go and be successful and challenge for things.”
YOU’RE WELSH AARON. You’d hate the insects, you’d hate the accents, you’d find fault with the lack of eateries that serve a substantial breakfast… you’d burn real easy.
I don’t think it’s flattering, I think it’s an insult.
Sad thing here is this… his stupid pal Gareth Bale is champing it up. He’s all like…
‘Imagine Aaron. You’re Welsh playing for Barca. I’m Welsh playing for Madrid. Think of the marketing prowess we’d have? We’d own this place. They’d call us the Two Dragons’
He’d have a point. Aaron doesn’t have the game for Barca at the moment. I think he’s very exciting, but he holds onto the ball too long, he is often at fault for losing the ball in possession… but he’s explosive and exciting. He’s also very young. So we’ll see. He needs a big year, then we’ll slip him off for a mega fee and sign N’Zogbia.
Chezzer is gone, but the door is open…
I believe he will have a future at Arsenal because I rate him highly. I don’t want the opportunity he had at a young age to be wasted. He was open-minded about the move. He was ready for a fight here and he was ready to go somewhere and play. I believe he trusts me on that.
Maybe he goes to Roma and has a blinder. Maybe it’s more of the same. Simply put, it’s down to him. His attitude cost him a place at Arsenal he could have owned for 10 years. Muppet.
Today’s game is against Lyon. If you’re going to the Emirates Cup, enjoy and take a rain jacket! Kick off is at 1620.
Right, I’m off. Have a good one!
TROPHY NUMBER TWO PLEZ!
