You know what is boring?
Transfers and being the only club in the planet that hasn’t been able to sign a single outfield player.
Sounds like things are rumbling on in the background.
The Mail thinks we were interested in Lewandowski and Muller. I mean, highly unlikely in a world lacking in striking talent that we’d be adding either of those two beauties to our forward line.
Papers are still flogging the Karim Benzema hope. Again, really struggling to see that coming in unless the player tells the club he wants out.
Midfielders aren’t being linked anymore. So hopes of a ball playing DM feel low. Which is disappointing because there are 275,000 pro footballers on this dear planet. So plenty of choice. We can’t keep saying there’s no one who could improve us.
I feel like this is one of those property shows where the contestants are unrealistic.
‘I have £125k to spend on a property. I’m not picky, but I only want to live in Fulhamtwe, I need 3 bedrooms, a roof deck, a porter and I want the sun to rise in the bedrooms and set on the second balcony.’
What happened to Arsenal unearthing a gem no one had heard of?
WHERE MY GOAT HERDERS BE AT!
No where, Steve Rowley and his pals have given up, what a joke.
One player I’d love is to be in for is John Stones. Big question here is why we weren’t in for him when he was at Barnsley. £1.5m! He’ll be a staple in the back four of some Premiership team for 10 years. Arsenal discussed him last season, apparently Everton wanted £30m for him so we went for Chambers instead.
No comment on that just yet.
On the loan front, serial loanee, Wellington Silva is off to Bolton for a season of Jack Wilshere like learning. Gedion Zelalem is heading up to Scotland to play for Rangers for a season. That seems like a bit of a crappy loan if you ask me. I’d have hoped he’d get a season at Brentford or somewhere like that. Massive talent. I wonder if his attitude is in the right place?
Sounds like the bromance between Per and Cech continues…
“Even when we lose a game, he has some great ideas on and off the pitch. He is very important for us and a good addition.
“He is experienced enough to think about what went wrong [against West Ham], you don’t have to tell him. My feeling is he comes back even stronger, so there is no doubt he will be a great addition for us.
“There was not just one mistake [against West Ham] – when a goal happens, there are always three of four small mistakes a lot of the time. It was more down to us to analyse what went wrong in general, and there was a lot.
Good to have people like that in the dressing room!
Right, that’s all I have time for. Catch you in the morning tomorrow!
