Not for one minute am I suggesting that Arsene Wenger is thinking about this, but…….
Yesterday there were a few rumblings about Alex Hleb, the man who flirted with the big clubs to get a move, told the world he hated living in the big fast city of London where the noise was all too much. The same player then got what he wanted, he moved to a small club in the quite little city of Barcelona!!
Well well, forgive me if I am wrong, but isn’t Barcelona a tad busier and more noisy than London?
Of course it is, but he got the move he wanted, that being out the doors of Arsenal in the summer of 2008.
Did anyone know that Hlebs mother was a builder… Good girl I say, didn’t know though, anyway, I digress..
Following his big salary move, it didn’t take long for him to be dumped onto the Barca bench, I think he started only five games for his new club! Whilst he gathered many a splinter he confessed that the worse thing he did was to leave Arsenal.
This is what he said in July last year….
‘I regret my move from London, but unfortunately nothing can be done about it now.’
While Hleb feels he has been poorly treated by Nou Camp boss Pep Guardiola, he showered praise on former manager Arsene Wenger.
‘For me, Wenger was like a father. I consider him one of the best managers in the world. For such a boss one wants to die on the pitch. Arsene managed to create a smashing team with a wonderful atmosphere inside of it. I have no doubts that if Arsenal had the same budget as Barcelona, the Gunners would be among the three best clubs on the planet.’
Are you reading Cesc Fabregas, the grass is not very often greener after Arsenal!!
On 29 July 2009, Hleb returned to his former club VfB Stuttgart on loan until June 30, 2010.
So that loan is now up and I wonder what will happen to Alyaksandr Pavlovich Hleb now, sure as heck he won’t go back to Barcelona and oust the likes of Messi & Co will he. He has hinted at a return to the Premier League, both Aston Villa and the money bags Mancs are keeping tabs on his situation so who knows.
Would you fans entertain seeing Hleb back at Arsenal after his antics against Murty, his rumoured whoring around in Milan over an ice-cream or would you rather see him rot on the bench at Barcelona??
Many want Flamini back, what about Hleb, at least he was with a team who beat the Mancs in the Champions League, albeit he was on the bench 🙂
I know my view, whats yours??
Finally and I think this is an interesting one, Ben Foster is due a medical at Birmingham today. (SSN’s) If this is true and Foster passes his medical then surely Birmingham will not require the services of Joe Hart next season. Hart is not going to sit around warming the Citeh bench having had a great season out on loan is he. My guess is he’s on the move, but where to? Is he going to move across Manchester and sign for Red Nose, or could he be moving further down south to us….
The Red Tops report this morning that Barca are due to make an official approach for Cesc Fabregas today. I know none of will be surprised at this, lets just hope that Arsenal have the balls to say ‘NO’..
Oh and did anyone know that we were in talks with Marouane Chamakh last night over a possible transfer? I was stunned when Sky Sports broke the news last night, didn’t see that one happening 🙂
Have a great day all, the sun is shining and we may just see our first summer transfer signed….
