Aaron Ramsey has a calf injury… read into that how you like, but not before I give you a sweet hot take.
1. If he’s faking an injury, that’s bad news, because it means he’s leaving. Arsenal surely can’t keep him beyond the deadline day that’s looming.
2. If he’s reacted badly to double sessions and he’s injured already after not having a World Cup, that’s pretty much the standard way his career has gone for us.
We had a solid start to our summer, but we might end it losing last seasons star man and our CEO.
I mean, Ivan leaving isn’t a big deal. Part of me feels like that’s the sort of move you make after you realise that your grand plan might be a shite one. What sort of person bottles out of a project this early? If he’d gone when 90% of his job was being a propaganda machine for Wenger and FFP dreams, I’d get it. He had no power. But leaving just after he’s implemented an incredibly expensive plan is absolute jokes.
That’s the measure of the man.
Incredibly poor leadership. Bottled the managerial decision for self preservation (they wanted Arteta). Bottled controlling the new manager’s entourage (letting him have 5 staff). Bottled seeing it through (All but confirmed Milan is his new club).
Hopefully, Stan hires a football CEO for the next round. Let’s find someone who has grown a club to elite status. Little bit like the work being done over at Juventus. Smart branding, a focus on winning, new stadium, immense wheeler dealer-ing.
In other news… DEMBELE WAS IN A PICTURE WITH ARSENAL PLAYERS.
Auba snuck out the below on his father’s Instagram.
I remember being told the RVP used to tap up his mates and try and sell them to Arsene Wenger back in the day. Can’t help but think Auba is a recruitment specialist. Dembele is a superstar, he would be the icing on the cake this summer and I’d throw myself under a bus to see him in red and white.
Let’s see how that plays out. The players know what they’re doing there. Let’s hope the smoke is a roaring fire.
Right, my arm is hurting. See you in the comments.
