The dust has settled a bit after our defeat to Barca, the heart is starting to heal, slowly.
Yesterday was cruel, Sky Sports reported all day about how wonderful Messi is, how he won the tie for Barcelona single handed, blah blah blah. Sky don’t like Arsenal do they, I bet they would have hated it had we won!
This morning though a different story is there for them to report, Sky United aka Manchester United, having been knocked out of the same competition at the same stage, are not getting the same coverage at all. Its a very subtle reporting of their loss, mainly focussing on the sending off of the manc player and how it was a harsh decision and how it changed the game…. Cods Wallop, they lost and they are out and I’m glad!! In the process, Rooney has injured himself even more but I bet Fergie doesn’t get slated by the FA, the way that the French have slated Wenger over Gallas… For sure they won’t!!
Arsene Wenger has said that he WILL need to buy players to add to the squad if we are to compete next season. Each time we approach a transfer window he says something similar doesn’t he? Will it be any different this summer? We all know we need to add players to the squad, but what we don’t need Arsene is ‘squad’ players. What we need is quality players, players who’s names should be first on the team sheet.
Since 2005 I think, every May, as the transfer window approaches I think, this time, surely this time we will see a signing that fills me with excitement, but it never happens, we sign players like Silvestre, Bischoff – who?? another kid who has great potential…. well this summer surely it has to be very different. Most of us fans who don’t wear the ‘rose tinted’ specs can see it, the Arsenal old boys, Winterburn, Adams, Dixon and Merse have been saying it, surely now the board and Arsene Wenger must see it and finally do something about it….
So do you believe Arsene Wenger this time, do you think he will finally strengthen our squad with a great player or two?
We are not asking for more than we deserve, just four players would do, and they don’t all have to be as good as Messi, Torres would do 🙂
Bordeaux went out last night, Chamakh couldn’t save his club from defeat despite scoring. I suspect we will soon hear for definite whether he is joing us in the summer or not.
