Just what have we been doing for the last couple of weeks? I’ll tell you shall I, we have all been slating Barca for their filthy tactics yes, but we have also been saying, if they want Cesc, let them pay what he is worth, not just make an offer that is an insult to both the player and his current club!
Am I right?? Yes, and so is Arsene Wenger for saying Cesc is worth £80M or thereabouts.
Baring that in mind, (if reports are correct) why does our old tight git of a manager go and offer Lorient £4.2M for Laurent Koscielny, a player whose his club value at just under £7M…
I know the two situations are miles apart, different for all sorts of reasons but the principle is the same.
Lorient are not one of the biggest clubs in the world but just the same as a club like our, money matters and every penny counts. Why do we, Arsenal insult a club/player and offer such a lesser amount? We do it too often and it usually ends up in us missing out on a player who Wenger must rate. Surely if he didn’t he wouldn’t have put an offer in, in the first place!
Why can’t we just contact the club, find out how much they want then offer a realistic amount to buy him, you know, just like we all do when we buy a house. We know there is an extra £5000 on the value so you offer £10,000 below the asking price. Afer a bit of haggling the seller gets the right price….
Not Wenger though, he has offered nearly £3M less than the amount Koscielnys club has valued him at, why oh bloody why does he do it??
Koscielny is a 6’1″ CH, born in France but also qualifies to play for Poland…. He hasn’t made his mind up yet!!
I don’t know anything about the player, but my point is, if I did and I was qualified to make the judgement about him being a very good player and wanted to sign him for the club I managed, I would be offering a lot more than Wenger has reportedly made…..
How many players have we lost out because of an offer that was below the value of the player for sale???
Bah! Humbug! Ebenezer Scrooge – aka Arsene Wenger
I’ll let you all think about that one………
What we all feared, happened yesterday, Robin van Persie limped out of training and had his ankle heavily packed with ice. The World Cup hasn’t even started yet and he has suffered injury. We can only hope the Dutch Camp don’t risk him if he is not fully fit. I hope Arsenal are keeping tabs on this…..
Finally, this morning we are again being linked with Steven Taylor of Newcastle, Wigans Hugo Rodallega and Lyon midfielder Jean Makoun…..
Roll on Tuesday, let the fun begin!
