I AM BACK GOOD PEOPLE OF THE INTERNET.
Sorry for the lack of delicious content this week, I am working on a pitch for a super cool client and it has dominated me. Not in a sexy way either. However, I am back now, and so is football.
So what’s going down in the hood?
Brexit? What a laugh. The only thing I really care about in this whole situation is whether it allows Arsenal to buy more young South American players. Really don’t understand why there are laws concerning the issue to start with. Of all the problems Britain has, one of them isn’t bringing in super rich high spending Brazilians.
Get me the next Messi, please.
Unai Emery has spoken about the beautiful Denis Suarez.
“He is OK for starting in the first XI, to give us this impact.
“We are going to need everybody, every player for the next matches.
“Now we have a lot of players ready, with a big mentality and with a big performance to play and help us.”
Love the crisp clarity of his prose. Suarez has looked a little bit bland so far, but I swear I can recall a pretty good counterattack he was part of that had potential. He is also pretty and I am comfortable repeating that over and over.
Arsenal are being linked with… BIG SAM UMTITI. The story is coming from the Independent, so about as reliable as Michael Owen’s hamstrings. My thoughts on this one:
- Arsenal don’t have big dick swinging money this summer, he’s not going for anything less than £80m
- His contract runs until 2023
- Umtiti is a very good player, even with Champions League we’d be a big step down
- Barca have nearly or have signed De Ligt for £80m, he’s a bit good, I’d suspect the Frenchman is a bit worried
- I think his agent is setting off warning flares to get reassurances from the Barcelona board
Needless to say, we are not shopping in that market this summer unless there’s been a serious change of heart OR Arsenal brought back more than a tan from Dubai.
Talking of the Independent writing bollocks, remember when they dropped a story about Sven leaving for Bayern after they read my piece? In a twist if DELICIOUS irony, he could end up taking over the technical director role over at Roma.
FFS, Arsenal have been bent over a barrel on this one. Once again making decisions on the fly without a really good plan a, b and c on the table. Sven is going to wreck our summer and he’s going to be a man possessed when it comes to proving out he’s capable of delivering.
Let’s see how that one works out!
Right, I am going to be back in the hotseat tomorrow, regular as The Sun and a morning whatever…
See you in the comments. x
