Ok, ok. So maybe I don’t have the exclusive I need. I have a story though. But the story needs a bit of help. I haven’t got that help yet.
So forget I ever said anything, yah get me?
The hype today is all about Benzema.
Rafa told the Frenchman he wanted him to stay. The Frenchman told all suitors he wanted to stay.
Now he’s not getting games.
Now the doubts must be creeping in.
Could Arsenal be ready to make another raid on Madrid?
This has all the hallmarks of the Ozil story. He wanted to stay. Then he was told to go.
Trouble here is the merry-go-round needs someone to move first. I’d guess Rafa has someone in mind who is also at a big club. But who sells first and risks not being able to bring in someone amazing?
It’ll happen. Nothing particularly grotesque has happened so far in this window. Bar Sterling, which to be honest, really doesn’t look like a bad move considering his age and talent.
We’re pining or summer on Karim. Feels a bit weak, but if our aim is to indulge at the highest level, we don’t really have many choices.
Imagine though? He’s the most perfect choice. Unselfish. Powerful. Fast. Stunning in front of goal. French.
LOOK AT THE WORDS THEY ARE CRYPTIC.
He also followed an Arsenal account on Instagram.
I mean YOU DO THE MATH.
Obviously he’s coming.
Anyway, even if he doesn’t, at least Arsenal fans are having fun.
In other news, Abou Diaby changed his mind about joining WBA and instead landed a move to Marseille. A much tidier move. Though it would have been easy to understand if he’d opted to prove himself under Tony Pulis.
Had some heated discussion at my Dad’s Arsenal themed birthday party (I put on his Arsenal shirt for a laugh, took a call and someone recognised me. Like being caught smoking by Google Maps). The jist was we’re a DM away from dominance.
Now, I get this. I’d have loved a Schneiderlin or a Schweinsteiger. But I think we’re strong without. I don’t see many options out there for us at the moment, but regardless, we’ll still be challenging.
I honestly think we’d be better off signing a young player in that role. Coquelin is our number one there. I think he’ll be exceptional this season. I also find it hard to believe Wenger has Jack Wilshere in mind as the back up for Ozil this season? Doesn’t make sense. I’m sure he’ll rotate with Coquelin.
That, or Wenger will run him into the ground!
Right, that’s me done… keep dreamin’ until you’re woken up by the Chamakh like reality kissing your transfer dreamed neck.
