It’s happy because Foals just dropped their new album. It’s been a bit of a year for music, Everything Everything, Libertines and Maccabees. My ears are happy.
… but here’s the thing people. Is my heart happy? Well, how can it be, when Giroud is manning our forward line alone.
Well, take this with a big pinch of hope, but there are murmurings of a Benzema exit Madrid side. It’ll be very much in the same shape as the Ozil exit. Kicking, screaming…
‘… but Florentino, don’t you love me?’
*Chair turns slowly to face window
‘Mariana, please show Karim the door’
‘FATHER, PLEASE, I’LL DO ANYTHING’
That’s basically how I see it going down.
Anyway, don’t write things off yet. Wenger is sitting there waiting with a load of cash Madrid need. Question is, who would be heading the other way?
Gotze? Reus? GIROUD?
I don’t know. Shit, I don’t even know if this is happening. But the sun is shining and the rumour comes from a good place. Nothing is guaranteed, but at least you can go into the weekend with a dream.
“I don’t know because I am always confident that a last-minute situation or solution is available, because the transfer market is especially moving in the last four or five days.
“At the moment, I cannot promise you that. We work very hard… you know I have a team around me who work day and night to find good solutions.
At least Wenger is about, eh? That’s positive, right?
Champions League is as groundhog as our transfer windows. We’ve landed Bayern again for, what, the 19th time? Chelsea have FC Porto, again. Jeez, the group stages are boring. Olympiacos and Dynamo Zagreb also share our route in. Bit of a ball ache having to travel that far for our two weaker games. Always a pleasure to watch Bayern. Pep over to us in the last season before he moves to City.
The game we have at the weekend is looking a little worrying as far as centre backs are concerned.
“Mertesacker is still sick and Koscielny will have a test on his back,”
“The less likely to be fit is Mertesacker.”
Chambers wasn’t the best against Liverpool. But hopefully that’s just first game nerves. Newcastle don’t have the best squad. They don’t have the best manager. But they nicked a point from United, so we have to be on our game. It’s absolutely vital we go into the international break with a convincing win.
After the international break, we should be in a good place squad wise.
“Danny Welbeck is progressing well. He should be available, if all goes well, after the international break. Jack Wilshere is just behind Welbeck, maybe one week after the international break he will certainly come back into full training.”
Right, I have to get back to work. Have a good day and I’ll see you in the morning!
