GOT DAT FRIDAY FEEEEEVER.
So what do we have today? Zlatan has FAILED to Zlatan so far. In fairness, he’s playing in a side that’s not built for craft. However, I do wonder what he’s expecting at United next season. They’ll be in transition under Jose, by the time he gets it right, he’ll be 36.
Falcao mark II? One would hope so.
The Mikki story looks like it’s going down the pan. The player now all about United apparently. Amazing, because he was all about Arsenal a few weeks ago. Rumour has it that we’re in for Gotze if this one doesn’t work out. Not sure about that. Good player, but I’m not sure I’ve been blown away by his career progress so far (aside from scoring the winner in a WC final)… If Pep can’t work magic into a player, you wonder what hope Wenger has?
The striker stories continue to flounder as well… Sturridge for £50m? Feel like that’d be insane. He scored a nice goal yesterday, is easily one of the best strikers in the league but look… he’s injury prone as fuck. If Klopp is moving him on… that’s a Klopp with Oli Bartlett (best fitness coach in the world) back by his side… well, that tells you he doesn’t believe in the lads ability to stay healthy.
The Vardy story is now boring as well. I think he’d be a good buy, but damn, am I start to get buyers regret before we’ve bought him. I’m sure he’ll be good, I just can’t muster that much excitement about him. Maybe it’s the brand I don’t like, maybe it’s the risk he comes with, maybe it’s going short term on someone who has one season of wonder under the belt.
Or maybe it’s the chewing tobacco and Red Bull…
Finally, before I go, my Gooner colleague / pal in London pulled together a cool blog on the social conversation around the Copa America / Euro 2016.
I’m checking out. ALL THE BEERS!
