On a horrible wet and windy morning many fans might be glad that they are staying home this afternoon instead of having to travel to football, so maybe this break has come at the right time for once? No – ok, just trying to cheer up the grumpy ones who are missing their footie fix.
Look on the bright side, England play Brazil, so that could be a good game to watch, alternatively there is the France v ROI play off, first leg – difficult choice? No, the latter for me and I hope Trapp’s boys get one over the French Boss who looks like he is first choice when Thunderbirds is re-created!!
Not only have we had to endure the Cesc rumours, but now it seems the Sagna to Juve have resurfaced. Well, Big Bacary has turned down Real Madrid according to his agent so Juve have no chance. Also, Sagna has made it very clear to the overseas clubs that he is happy and will not leave Arsenal. Good man!
Gilles Sunu is wanted by Blackpool on loan, good move for the lad to I think and he wants to go. Arsene is being shrewd and has told him to sign a contract extension or don’t go on loan. Sunu is definitely one for the future so let’s hope he sorts this out and signs on the dotted line.
Another player who has sorted out his contract extension is Carlos Vela, terms and conditions have been agreed and all that remains is his signature in the right place which is expected to take place after the break. (Young Guns)
Talking of Mexican players, we are soon to sign another wonder kid, Martin Luis Galvan Romo – he is just 16 years old and a little bit good by all accounts. (See Young Guns for the full article)
This morning’s papers suggest that Bayern Munich youngster David Alaba has confessed that his dream is to play for Arsenal. The 17-year-old midfielder is Austria’s youngest-ever international player – who knows eh?
Two weeks to go until we welcome the Russian Empire to our stately home, and I am starting to warm towards certain aspects of their club – well only the one actually, and that is their injury list!
All of the above are expected to be out for the match against us, I just hope Essien gets a little knock this weekend and Terry! The latter hobbled off from training with England so you never know.
Just as their injury list grows, ours should soon shorten. Theo, Denilson, Vela, Wilshere, Traore and Vela should be back in training this coming week. Nik should be back sooner than expected. He has a new wealthy woman in his life, he will be wanting ‘that’ injury to heal as soon as possible 😳
Finally, poor old Carlo Cudicini – as a Spud and a man, the two worst things that could have happened to him happened. He suffers a car accident having been hit by a female driver. That must have been a bitter pill to swallow, but then to find out she is a Gooner must have been awful!!
Woops, make that three; he broke both his wrists too!! 😉
Have a great day, and cheer on the Irish, for Irish
