Death. Taxes. Disaster transfer windows. Jack Wilshere injuries. All guarantees in the life of an Arsenal fan.
I’ve been saying all year the idea of him going to play at a World Cup is crazy. He should be looking after himself and preserving his legs for his club. The club that’s funneled wages into him for very little return.
It’s not his fault he’s broken, but he’s played a lot of games in the last three months (by his standards), and it’s clear he can’t handle normal workloads.
Hopefully this isn’t a massive issue because if it is, he can kiss goodbye to whatever contract they have on the table.
If you swim past sentimentality, it’s tough to justify our continued faith in him. He’s been ok this season, but not a revelation. Jack spoke candidly about the fact Wenger wanted rid of him in the summer.
‘He said, ‘I am going to be honest with you and at the moment we are not going to be offering you a contract, so if you can get a contract somewhere else, you can go’.
‘Obviously, I was not happy with that, but at the same time I was happy he was being honest
I’d place money Sven M and Raul could find better value for £90k a week.
There’s a really good piece from Charlie Watts over at London.Football has written about the LA Rams bold move to fire a shite 70-year-old manager and replace him with a young 30 year old whippersnapper.
“I think if they were going to stay in St Louis then maybe Stan would have been happy with the status quo, but the fact he is in a new market he pushed for with a fanbase who had no real ties to the Rams and a new stadium, I think he understood that he had to listen to the fans.
“He understood something had to change otherwise the LA thing was not going to work out because the last thing you need in a city as big as this one, when there are as many distractions that there are here, is for everyone to be a bit meh about your football team.”
Key takeaway here, we might need to move to Milton Keynes to get Wenger out of the club. I’d take that right now, it has a cool vegan cocktail scene, right?
Your daily update on Sanchez being sad about being utter shite comes courtesey of the national team coach.
‘He is sad because he wants to show his level. Fortunately, he arrived with a great disposition. He knows that his teammates love him and respect him.’
I AM GLAD HE IS SAD.
Hector Bellerin’s agent is either trying to quell rumours that his client is seeking a move, or he’s trying to entice bidders.
“Bellerin is very happy at Arsenal. He signed a long-term contract with Arsenal over a year ago,” Botines told Italian radio station CRC. “If a club wants to make an offer for Bellerin, they first have to get in contact with Arsenal.
“Every summer there is interest from clubs but Arsenal have not made me aware that any offers have arrived.”
I’d say Bellerin should work on being better before he squeals for a move away from Arsenal. Again, it’s tough to judge him too hard, he’s working for a shite manager. Still, Nacho does a great job in defence, and he has the same person teaching him that switching off is the best way to express creativity in 2018.
Right, that’s me done. Let’s pray for ZERO damage to our players this weekend.
Sorry for the lack of posts this week, MEGA important work stuff that I need to concentrate on, so, you know, sometimes football shit has to take a back seat.
