Yesterday we were subjected to a blogger who wanted to tell us how good the club is, how we are on the way up, how he/she loved Arsene Wenger – in fact he/she was so ‘up’ about Arsenal and Arsene Wenger, for a split second I wondered if it was Arsene 🙂
Seriously, I can understand fans seeing the best in everything, but why not express it from your own beliefs rather than that quoting from afc.com….
Saying that, I am going to take an article from the same website, one that I hope is true and one that I think could sort many a problem out with our defence.
Sol Campbell believes he has two years left at the highest level – and he wants to spend them with Arsenal.
Do those two comments really go together ?? Ok, I jest about the highest level bit as I know we can get there if……
The most important part of that is he wants to stay with us, and we need him in my opinion. Maybe not so much as a player next season although there will games when he will play, but for me, having Big Sol on board will be a massive coup.
Tony Adams has gone off to manage/coach elsewhere and it seems little likely that Martin Keown will be brought back to help sort out our defensive woes, so is there really anyone better suited to that role than Sol Campbell?
I’m not sure there is, we already have Steve Bould in the junior ranks so having Campbell training with the first team, giving the defensive unit a bit of advice can only be good for the club can’t it. Arsene Wenger must still believe in him, otherwise he would never have got him back. Wenger may be one of the best to coach offensive football, but right now we need to sort out our defensive side to our game, so bring it on Big Sol – he didn’t get player of the month in April for nothing….
This is what he said to afc.com
“I fancy staying, of course I do,” he told Arsenal.com.
“I want to stay and I want to give it my all for at least another year. I could do two but the manager never gives out two. We always want a little bit more! Give me one year and I’ll work every day and try to win a trophy and bring some kind of glory back to Arsenal.
“Deep inside I feel I’ve got two real gritty years left in me, the years in which I can affect things. If I’m in the team I can really make a difference. I know that. And after two years I will look at it again and we’ll see.
“After that I might only be able to play games here and there, who knows, but I think I can be an influence and be positive and win games and be strong for two years.”
Other than the big names you have planned to bring in Arsene, Sol may yet again prove to be one of the best, if of course you make the most of him….
The spin around Cesc has gathered pace this morning, most red tops believe that he has done a deal with Barca and Yaya Toure is involved in the deal. It’s suggested that Cesc is due for ‘showdown’ talks with Arsene Wenger to sort his future out before the start of the World Cup. I don’t get that bit, he has a contract with us until 2050 so what needs to be sorted? No doubt a lot of the talk is historical stuff and the talks are just to reassure Cesc that we are adding some quality to our squad to give us a real chance of winning trophies…
I hope so anyway!
