SO SO SO SO… what do we have tomorrow? What did I miss? What would you LIKE to read?
Ok, so hot af rumours are that the striker we’re chasing down this summer is none other than Alvaro Morata. He’s the player we were interested in a couple of seasons ago, but he ended up going to Juventus and getting them to a Champions League final. He’s a very good player, but this season, he hardly torn up the trees in Italy… and it’s mooted that he may well be off in a £50m deal… to us.
Now, I initially spat out my tea at the prospect of this because that’s a lot of cash for someone who registered less goals than Giroud. But, apparently, according to the stats blogs, he’s still an awesome player who could do a very good job for us.
I have questions over his pace, but he’s a smart player, he’ll have the technical gifts most Spanish players come with and he has target man frame. Seems an awful lot of cash to outlay for someone who isn’t prolific.
I’m not sure who I’d like to see come in. Auba over at Dortmund would be a dream, he’s fast, pretty tall and he knows where the net is. He also has wide player experience so would have that Thierry like fire power to do amazing things by playing across the front line.
Outside that, we’d have to get cute. I understand Sturridge is a consideration, but for me, if Klopp is ejecting him because of a spiky attitude and fitness issues, that’s a big fat red warning sign even if we can get him cheap. If Wenger is keeping Giroud, I don’t want to see him in the starting 11 next year. Signing Sturridge when we already have a crocked WELBZ would be beyond farcical in my opinion, regardless of how incredibly talented he is.
‘XHAKA ON HIS WAY TO LONDON’
Love it when that noise starts… like a bunch of people got the word from his agent…
‘@FootyHero9989 Granit is on the PLANE now’
It takes 2 hours max to get here. How does it even make a story? Someone just told me he’s at Colney right now doing his medical. Word to those sort of rumours… they do the medicals at a private hospital. So if he’s at Colney, he’s likely getting his shirt shots for the press release. Expect the official announcement to happen 28th August. Standard Arsenal.
Jack Wilshere is to be rewarded with an extension to his contract. I mean, I find that amazing. Rewarded for being injured. This feels like the sort of reward we’ve been handing out to Theo Walcott when he’s been injured most of his Arsenal career. Still, what do you do, let him go to City and play under Pep?
Really hope Jack stays fit this year so we can see if he is actually the best player there ever was, or he’s just another over hyped over paid English kid who can’t behave.
Finally, I have some pals over at Unibet (yes pals, so there’s no ‘sponsored’), they’re running a competition to identify a Psychic Pet for the Euros. If your pet is psychic, or just f*cking weird, submit a video of your it predicting the Man City score to the hashtag #MyPsychicPet and you could win £500.
Does your pet have psychic powers?
