As far as injury lists go, he has been at the top longer than Frankie Laine was in the pop charts in 1953!
Yesterday Arsenal announced the news that Tomas Rosicky had signed a new two year contract!
Tomas said he is thrilled and he needs to repay the faith our club has shown him during the last ten years whilst he has been sat in company of a Lewin!
Yes Tomas you do need to give something back!
Rosicky joined us in 2006 from a club I can’t spell so I won’t bother trying and in his 76 appearances he has scored 14 goals. Not brilliant, but ok….
I remember when Sky Sports announced that he had left the Czech camp to fly to London to sign for us, I was so excited and to be fair he didn’t disappoint, did he??
But for the last two seasons he has been absent through injury, and now we have just given him a contract for the very same period of time he has been missing, two seasons…!
Commenting on his new deal, Tomas said: “I am so pleased to have signed a new contract with Arsenal. The last two seasons haven’t been easy for me because of injuries but I feel it speaks volumes about the Club’s belief in me for this to be signed, and I truly believe I have a lot left to offer the Club, my team-mates and all the supporters. It’s felt like home since I arrived here four years ago and I believe we’re on the verge of achieving something special together. I’m looking forward to the coming months and hope that together, we are all celebrating at the end of the season.”
Happy Tomas? Of course you are happy, so would we all be, getting paid to do very little 😉
I have a thought Tomas, maybe as you have been paid for two years without playing, maybe now you should be agreeing to play without being paid!!
Ok, I know that won’t happen, but seriously, are you pleased or not? Remember many fans thought Old Red Nose was mad taking a gamble on Owen, but he has nabbed a few goals for the Mancs to save their skins!
Would you have rather we spent the wages we will be paying him on funding a new player?
Or, like me, are you chuffed as punch, waiting now in anticipation to see the new Rosicky play the same way as the old one did?
Time will tell I guess and this is the only of the few times I hope I am right, normally I am on the end of a load of abuse from ave, him telling me I am always wrong… Fingers crossed eh!
Rumours about Paddy returning to England are gathering pace but no, he is not coming ‘home’, he is supposed to be going to Citeh – what a strange move for him if it’s true. He won’t get in the team and why would he want to learn a coaching trade in Manchester? Oh well, he is no longer a player to fear, he wasn’t a few seasons ago when we played against him in the CL, so he sure won’t be now!
Day 5 of the transfer market and yesterday there was suggestion that Miguel Veloso is to be on the move in January. If you believe the semi-skimmed papers, we are up against ‘Arry for his services..
He is meant to be quite good isn’t he, I have seen his name in many blogs, most saying he would be a great signing – I haven’t seen him play so can’t comment, but right now any link to a defensive/holding midfielder makes me happy, only because it makes me think that Wenger is looking to fill a huge void left by Billabong!
Bad news is that Cesc is out for an extra week, but good news is that ITV have pencilled us in for the FA Cup game against Stoke – That is fab as not many of us could make that journey – so another match in front of the television with a glass of something strong looms 🙂
But any thoughts of us signing a striker in January have toady been dashed as Nikki B is returning to full training today, bummer I say, I had hoped Carlton Cole would be ours by the end of the month. A big strong lean striker who can use his feet and his head – I guess a girl can dream!
That’s about it, don’t forget any newbie’s, mind your P’s and Q’s when blogging please, otherwise your comments get spammed 😦
News is breaking from Spain that Fran Merida has signed for Athletico and will join at the end of the season, I really hope this is pure speculation and nothing else, I want Fran to stay at Arsenal.
