So it seems Wenger cannot pay Flamini what he wants, which is more than the £50k being offered, he wants closer to the £80k Fab gets or the £120k that Gallas gets.
I don’t believe for a minute Gallas gets £120k, but if he gives Flamini more it seems they will have a player revolt on their hands.
So how did they get to the situation when a valuable player can walk on a free, I know he wasn’t as good last season, but he was good enough to tie into a contract that would have avoided this.
Bad business that, bad business. Arsenal have a habit of doing this, Wiltord and Edu spring to mind, you would think they would have learned by now.
Eduardo visits the training ground and the players loved it, perhaps he told them to start winning again!
Hleb made an astonishing revelation about what an arsehole Lehmann is at training and how he blanks all his team mates, he goes on to say that Almunia is very popular, how on earth do you come back to a relationship after that one?
That can’t be good for the dressing room and I am amazed that the boss didn’t offload the mad German at Christmas.
Lippi has tipped us for the Champions league over our English rivals and seems to have discounted the other four (foreign) teams, I’ll be happy to beat Middlesbrough this weekend, bitch of a time to travel to a game 5.15pm but it’s a must, must win game, with United at Derby and the Chavs right behind us, it’s getting a bit scary.
Robin back in form is like a new signing but he looked a shadow of his former self last weekend at Wigan, but he’ll be back, make no mistake on that one.
Dare I go for a 7 nil tomorrow? I’d be happy with 1 nil to be honest!
Have a great day Grovers.
