Good morning and welcome to the first ever dictated Le Grove.
I don’t want to go on about it but I have broken my arm and any online attention would be greatly appreciated.
Arsenal is being linked with them Dembele again. Just a shame it’s every poverty publication you can imagine putting their name to the story. I love Dembele but struggle to see Barcelona selling the player they purchased £110,000,000 only last summer. I don’t like the idea of us bringing him only for him to have an exceptional season, then to go back to Barcelona to fulfil the rest of his career. It’s a bit like dating Britney Spears before she made the big-time. Or breaking up with a partner of 10 years only for them to win the lottery the next week. OR SELLING YOUR SEASON TICKET LAST FEBRUARY AFTER 10 YEARS.
Also, do you remember the shenanigans of loaning Baptista? The guy was a disaster. Never been so disappointed in my life. I swear that was when the banter era started, how did Wenger think he could ever replace Patrick V with him?
Stories still continue to circulate about our CEO. I wouldn’t say I’m alarmed about him leaving. However, I do find it curious that he hasn’t come out in the press to quash the story. It seems like a bit of a dick move just let the rumor fester especially when such an important season is ahead of us. It really does feel like he is planning to make the season all about him regardless. Does he want more money? Does he want the fans to feel nervous? Does he just like being in the press? Is he getting kicks out finally being recognized as a great CEO? Who knows but it is boring.
Arsene is being linked with the Japan post. I thought he’d be in a job by now, but unless the role is bigger than Arsenal, anything else looks a little bit embarrassing. If I were Arsene, I would look to take over the national role. Maybe help develop an FA In a country that has a lot of potential (and a lot of money). Or just sit around on the beach all day. Recognizing you have hurt your family in the media and not doing anything to remedy it is selfish, in my opinion.
It is worrying there is still no news about how Welsh superstar. How long have the club given him to sign the deal? Transfer deadline date is in 20 days. That is not a lot time to negotiate a big transfer out of the club. That is not a lot of time to find a new player to replace his energy and prominence in the team. I find it difficult to believe the new backroom team does not have a plan in place either way. What is odd, is the seemingly low amount of interest in the services of Ramsey. The Ox was linked heavily to Liverpool last summer. No one is interested in Aaron that I know of. I am not saying That he would not get a move to a good club, merely pointing out that if he did want to go he would be using the interest of the clubs as leverage. Or is this a similar case to Ozil? The player pricing himself out of a move?
The club has not sold anybody of note So far. The hot rumours suggest WELBZ, Perez, and Ospina are on the out list. Interestingly Iwobi Is being linked with the move to Lazio. I’m not sure I would feel great about that, He deserves the chance alone for the rest of the players. He has been badly coached, has lots of bad habits, but at core has a lot of talent to offer the team. I also struggle with the notion that a Londoner would want to move to Italy. The English don’t travel very well.
Right, that’s me done, see you tomorrow. Big love from Colorado xxx
