All of course in my opinion, I’m allowed one 😉
Barca now want Clichy according to reports this morning. Well we’ve heard that before so it could be old news. If its true though, I actually think we would cope. Yes he’s improved a whole lot as last season went on but we have Gibbs and Traore behind him, both are quicker and both put a better cross into the box so all would not be lost if Clichy decided to jump ship, or if Wenger decided to push him…
Talking of that bunch of Scum Barcelona, again our little Russian has been speaking about his love for the Spanish club.
Its funny though really, Arshavin hardly set the world alight last season, in fact in many games he just ‘went missing’ like so many big players have done before him. IF Arshavin really wants to play for Barcelona maybe we should just sell him now, whilst Wenger is talking about buying players. Wenger doesn’t do that often so maybe its a good time to take advantage – the only downside of course is that Barca are yet to suggest they would like to poach him from us. I doubt very much they will either!
He say’s he’s ‘satisfied’ at Arsenal – not very convincing is it!!
We have supposedly upped our offer for Laurent Koscielny to £8M according to The Sun and Lorient have until Thurday to make a decision – £8M was the rough price the players club asked for him in the first place, so it looks like we could see another signing confirmed this week.
Wenger is suggested to be off to South Africa on Thursday, so I won’t be surprised if we see a bit of action in the next couple of days. Hopefully most will be good news, but maybe the bad news will come this week too 😦
Talking of the World Cup, the Theo Walcott debate continues. Today it’s Gary Neville’s turn to give his opinion and I think he’s right…
Neville, 35, said: “I did think Walcott would be chosen because he is a goal threat from out wide and he’s explosive.
“Theo potentially has more goals in him than Wright-Phillips and Lennon.
“He has played centre-forward in the past so it would’ve been another option in that position.”
In his day Neville was a top defender (did I just write that 🙂 ) He must know what its like to have England’s equivalent of Usain Bolt racing past him. I still think Capello has missed a trick, but at least we get a fit player next season. The way the players are limping out of the tournament, maybe its a good thing Theo hasn’t travelled..
Few little snippets, Nicklas Bendtner is doing battle with a groin injury which could jeopardise his World Cup, Fulham hope to nab Senderos on a freebie during this summer and Deportivo are thinking about putting ‘an offer in’ for Carlos Vela.
The big man from Russia has bought some more shares I read, that’s all beyond me a bit, but I guess if he or Stan buy Lady Nina’s shares we will have a new owner – I’m sure someone will explain it later
That’s it for today, have a good one….
