Arsenal to go Green and another kid signs….

 Just read that the odds on us signing Fulham goal keeper Mark Schwarzer  have been cut due to the player’s £4 million price tag. That’s a lot of money for a 37 year old – well in Wengers eyes it would be, I’m not so sure! We could sell Almunia for the same amount to fund the purchase and end up with a top keeper probably for 2/3 seasons. By then, Flapianski will have convinced Wenger that he’s either one of the best Polish keepers in the world or one of the worst!! Chesney and Mannone would have gained more experience and if they are up to the grade, we will have three (more likely two) top keepers, with a couple in the moving up the ranks.

But it seems, according to all the red tops and media, that we are now the big favourites to sign Robert Green from West Ham. I am not convinced by Green, just like I wasn’t with Richard Wright. Just hope Wenger is thinking about him because he has been advised to buy him by David Seaman, and not just because he’s English – if he wants English, Joe Hart has to be the better option.

Good thing is they are both at the World Cup so we will be able to see how they perform up against some of the worlds best, except Drogba of course…. Poor chap suffered a suspected broken arm whilst playing against Japan. I feel sorry for the player, I really do. No, not Drogba, the poor Japanese player who ‘broke’ Drogba’s arm, he was the same player who scored twice for England in their friendly!!

Another player ruled out of the World Cup was new skipper Rio Ferdinand so Michael Dawson has been shipped out to take his place.. Did I not say that Emile Heskey should never have been selected for Fabio’s 23 man squad, well?? That aging old lump is the one who ended Rio’s World Cup dream!

I don’t think Rio’s injury will be the last either, I wouldn’t mind betting either SWP, Lemmon or Barry end up catching the plane home before the tournament begins!!

This is the kind of story I love to read, extract stolen from Young Guns…

‘Arsenal have beaten Chelsea to the signing of Dutch Under 17 international Kyle Ebecilio, according to RTV Rijnmond. The 16-year-old midfielder will join from Feyenoord on July 1st. Ebecilio, a strong and powerful attacking midfielder, has been strongly linked with a move to Chelsea in recent weeks, but a reported last minute move from the Gunners has seen them seal the deal, much to Feyenoord’s dismay. Kyle is the cousin of Blues defender Jeffrey Bruma.’

Ok, he’s young and I wish we would invest in experience before signing more kids, but this kid is Dutch, he isn’t Spanish, so that’s a good start. He’s strong and powerful, thats good, just what we will need in 3/4 seasons time… Also he’s from Feyenoord 🙂

Then look at  some of the Dutch players we have had at the club, Dennis Bergkamp, Marc Overmars and Robin van Persie – all pretty darn good eh – didn’t hear them saying they wanted to go home??

But the best bit about this signing and yes I know you know what i’m going to say…

We beat the bloody Chavs to sign him……. So money isn’t always the winner, is it??

    Hi rico good eve..

  3. rico says:

    Good evening STV – what do you make of the Rio injury, Dawson is a very good addition I think…

  4. Gooner4Life says:

    Heard we have made a 2mil bid for Artur Boruc

  5. Suhail.TV says:

    Iam happy like you rico. unfortunate for rio, but dawson i feel is an under achived player.. devil heskey.

  6. jaygooner says:

    Huge pity about Rio, would have liked to have seen him mugged time and time again by younger faster players from the States Algeria and Slovenia, aaah well. I reckon England will need a shuttle service between London and South Africa cos he will not be the first to break down. England for the World Cup? yeah OK I am going to ride my bicycle to the moon

  7. rico says:

    😆 jay, I dont rate the chances of my country either, i’m opting for the Dutch 🙂

    G4L, that’s interesting news, where you heard that??

  8. Suhail.TV says:

    if an england wins it should be in last term.that team was stronger than this squad..

  9. rico says:

    STV, I think Dawson has been playing better than Rio, its the old Carragher that worries me, if he plays..

  10. Suhail.TV says:

    dutch to win it. and RVP to grab it

  11. Suhail.TV says:

    rico its very disappointing that there’s no arsenal player in it… heskey for theo.. great..

  12. jaygooner says:

    Boruc Cole Gourcuff Wenger is making his moves Maybe not those guys specifically but he is definitely closing deals and bringing new players to the Mighty Arsenal

  13. rico says:

    I think Lennon will pick up an injury STV, hes crocked anyway,

    jay, so he better had be, if he wants folk to stay and get us silverware, its now or never for the tight old git!! 😉

  14. nutcracker says:

    I know you have given credit to the website Young Guns for their content, but it would be better if you made that a clickable link. Much better way in my opinion.

  15. W.A.T.H says:

    Good evening Oh lady one…………. What happened to others doing articles on here as well or are you the lone writer these days Rico…?

  16. W.A.T.H says:

    I still say I’d rather David James on a freebie……!

  17. Suhail.TV says:

    Hey WATH… How you..

  18. rico says:

    Hi nutcracker, its on newsnow, and i’m not so good on links 😦 furthermore, theres not a lot else on the story as it says ‘more to follow’…..

  19. W.A.T.H says:

    Am good STV how’s you…?

  20. Suhail.TV says:

    So far so good.. slow improvements on arsenal..is’t it?

  21. rico says:

    Evening WATH, I can see why you think James, maybe the WC will convince me…. But, sadly, I think he’s too old… But if he gets the no1 shirt over the other two in SA, you may have a very valid point….

  22. Suhail.TV says:

    Why not a try for buffon.. who knows I think he is better than mark..

  23. W.A.T.H says:

    footie news is soooooooooooooooo slowwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

  24. rico says:

    You dissapointed you wont be seeing Rio in SA WATH 😉 😉

    You got a spud instead 😉

  25. c gander says:

  26. rico says:

    me too c gander, we all need to know that this is the end of seeing sub standard players just making up the numbers in our team…. he said they would be in before the WC, he hasn’t got long has he…

  27. rico says:

    How rude of me, evening c gander 😉

  28. Red Arse says:

    Hi Rico

    I wrote a really interesting post, 🙂 but my b. computer threw me out again.

    I’ve missed you, W, Agag and the rest of the crew.

    I’m becoming addicted, so you got to cut down on this doorbell thing! 🙂

  29. W.A.T.H says:

    Hi RA……….. Rico, I am going for a laugh NOT just to watch England and I don’t think we gonna get far anyway…!

  30. rico says:

    Hi RA, i’ve just been a tad busy today so i popped a late one up so not to let you all down 😉

    Go re-write the post i say, it will be good to read …

  31. W.A.T.H says:

    CG your spot on, young players is one thing but its not solving what we are crying out for…!

  32. rico says:

    It’s like ‘ how many kids does is take to fill an arsenal changing room’….. how many have we got??? and he still wants more….

  33. W.A.T.H says:

    the worse thing now is all these kids are a conveyor belt and so many will have to leave cos we will have no place for them…..! to much talent to close together…!

  34. goonercentric says:

    just cause he’s dutch and not spainish does not mean his boyhood club ins’t barca or medrid, most likely all the kids we sign are barca fans! and so 1 day they will be off, like loads before them! how likely is it that these boys will go the distance and stay and make a name for themselves at our club? i suppose also, that if the english boys at our club got out of their comfort zones they to would be going too?
    lets face it most if not all the players we have want to play for milan or barca or juve, etc, we need them to want to play for the arsenal! not the rest,
    i think it will happen but only in some time!

  35. rico says:

    WATH, if your going for a laugh, i would have thought that meant watching England…. 😉

    I’ll be surprised if we get passed the group stages if i’m honest….

  36. rico says:

    hi goonercentric, not sure if youve read here before, weve discussed the buying from overseas, i was being ironic in the post….. 🙂

  37. Red Arse says:

    Rico, it was reported that Arsenal had pinched a young 16 year old lad described as the pearl of dutch football, from under the noses of the Chavs.

    Unfortunately, the dutch papers were claiming that the Chavs had bought this kid. He’s named Embicilio, altho if he joins Chelski he is probably calle Imbecilio.

    Not just Cesc, this he is, he isn’t goes on at all age levels.

  38. rico says:

    😆 RA

    i did read the chavs were braggin g that they had got him, thats what makes it sweet…. but we need big boys…

  39. Red Arse says:

    Speak for yourself R.

  40. W.A.T.H says:

    RA……………. Plz do not get her started on the big boy thing…………!

  41. Red Arse says:

    O.K. W, aka big boy. 🙂

    Thing is she has a point, we need big players physically and quality wise.

  42. rico says:

    Oi, i meant Big players, you boys have one track minds 😉

  43. Red Arse says:

    There you are W, we speak as one mind. Genius, and tomorrow the world. 😉

  44. Red Arse says:

    Got to go R and W, being drinking too much Cabernet Sauvignon tonight, one mind and three screens hopping about, not responding to the 20 fingers. What??
