Inter want Cesc, Juve get Traore, why didn't we get…..

Rumours came out yesterday that Inter Milan are going to make a shock bid for our Captain, the price is suggested to be around £29M and Sulley Muntari who used to ply his trade at Portsmouth.

Having managed to get myself back up off the floor from laughing at this latest Cesc story, I read it again! What a load of codswollap. Three things, Cesc has seen just how well Rafa Benitez hit the ‘club destruct’  button at the dippers, Cesc doesn’t want to go to Italy, we don’t want Muntari and finally which part of ‘Cesc is not for sale’ does Rafa not understand?
Anyway, old Twitcher wants Muntari, I guess that’s from his Pompey days..

Moving on, it seems we are going to get a goal keeper, but which one I wonder, will it finally be Mark Schwarzer, or will Arsene Wenger take a risk on an Englishman, that being Robert Green? Despite a few rumblings around yesterday about Green, I don’t Wenger will risk getting burned again in the goal keeping department, especially after his last experience of buying English, Richard Wright was one of his many sub-standard signings… I won’t go there ;) Another keeper linked is Lille goalkeeper Mickael Landreau. Not long now and we’ll all find out who it’s going to be or will it still be Almunia.

 Traore has gone to Juventus on loan. Both Traore and Arsenal wanted the deal to be permanent one so why didn’t we just do a  player swap. Sissoko and Melo are their defensive midfielders, Rafa ruined Sissoko and Melo is a bit of a nutter but in all honesty, I wouldn’t have minded either in our squad to bolster our midfield, especially for games like we have just played up at Blackburn. Another midfielder I would seriously think about making a cheeky offer for is Mahamadou Diarra of Real Madrid, I know he’s not tall but he’s strong and he’s out of favor at Real Madrid. The downside to him is that he would be involved in the ACON at the same time as Song but if Wenger gets the right CH in before deadline day, Vermaelen could easily fill in, or even Johan Djourou if he’s fit, after all that’s his favored position.

We may not all agree on the players I have mentioned but reality is there are players out there who know they won’t be part of a 25 man squad, if that was you, would you want to stay at your current club or would you accept a move to ensure you are involved in first team football?

With Traore gone and if  Almunia and one other leave today, we have three spaces, go on Arsene, fill them and make us all happy, in any case he has to at least replace Traore in the quad but whether he buys a player to do that or promotes from within remains to be seen!

Finally I bring you all sad, very sad news. I had hoped that this player would re-think about leaving us, maybe just give it one more season but it seems he has left us for good. When I heard the news I was shocked, horrified and wondered how our defence would cope without him…

Yes, Werder Bremen have signed Mikael Silvestre, good luck old chap I say, I’ll miss you ;)

That’s about it, just ten painful hours to go until the window shuts until January. Will it be a fruitful ten hours for all Arsenal fans or come 6pm will we all be left disappointed, again?

    Karibu Sana it is :)

    no real news so late but this comment made my day:

    comment by Vermaelen’s left peg – SWEET (U3052226)

    posted 4 Minutes Ago

    I just found out that Arsenal are still trying to do a deal for a goalkeeper and a loan striker to cover RVp, apprently this is possible because the transfer window did not shut properly, there is a problem with the hinge on the window so it is not properly shut and players can still be sneaked through if clubs get in there early. Arsenal legal team have notifed Wenger of this, although Almunia is said to be trying to fix the window and get it well shut – welded shut in fact.

    Traore & Hleb are both loan deal Stef… Juve have the option to buy Traore at the end of the loan and I couldn’t give a hoot what happens to Hleb ;)

  39. Stef

    August 31, 2010 at 4:50pm

    hi guys n gals

    Hleb is Birmingham player now and Traore maybe a Juventus, somewhere was reported as a done deal but I don’t c a confirmation anywhere.
    And there were rumors about loaning Gibbs I say noway in hell…

    I think its fair to say, we are signing no other players this window…..

    Oh happy days of watching Almunia…..

  46. Red Arse

    August 31, 2010 at 4:36pm

    Rico,

    Is there an element of porkies there? I thought there was approx a 10 year gap between you and Agag, therefore if she was 6 then, she must be 54 now and you are oooer missus. ;)

  47. rico

    August 31, 2010 at 4:32pm

    At 6PM UK time, I’m off to bed ;)

  49. Red Arse

    August 31, 2010 at 4:28pm

    Hi Stef,

    The deadline over here is 6 p.m. (in an hour and 35 mins).

    Stand by for Arsene to say, “we tried but we ran out of time”.

    If medicals are not being done now, it would not be possible to sign anyone.

    So in answer to your question, I do not think there will be any signings. Arsene, same, same.

  50. rico

    August 31, 2010 at 4:27pm

    I don’t think I was born then WATH ;)

    Hi Stef, a keeper first, then anything else is a bonus :)

    August 31, 2010 at 4:08pm

    neither can i see moyes leaving everton right now, certainly not for villa, considering lerner is now talking about how they need to be financially responsible. moyes has had to make do with very little money at everton, do not see why he would want to walk into a similar situation at villa.

    when he does leave everton, it will be for a bigger club (only a handful in the prem) – and that is not villa…

  56. oliver

    August 31, 2010 at 4:06pm

    rico, of course. as celtic are a “bigger” club than arsenal, so hibernian are “bigger” than celtic…

    begovic? i can just see pulis dropping everything he has going to do a spot of business with arsenal. whomever dreamed that one up should have considered the current relations between the respective managers…

  57. Red Arse

    August 31, 2010 at 4:04pm

    Rico,

    Do you think Moyes got the hump because Everton are going to sell Rodwell to Manure?

  58. Red Arse

    August 31, 2010 at 4:03pm

    Hola Agag, I was reading your comment even if WATH isn’t! :-)

    Rico, Begovic is only 23, so all the rationalisation about an older keeper to allow Chesney to come on sounds like tripe, if true.

  59. rico

    August 31, 2010 at 4:01pm

  61. agirlagunner

    August 31, 2010 at 3:59pm

    I wouldn’t be surprised if AW does not sign anyone… But I’d still be disappointed, for sure… If we are to be serious title contenders, we must get a better keeper… :(

    Hello, RA. :)

  62. Red Arse

    perhaps he still will be. he has been in or near the first team squad before, so maybe this is just an opportunity for him to hone fitness and technique in a more technical league with less pressure. we’ll see what happens with him…

  96. rico

    August 31, 2010 at 2:12pm

    We keep some and yet let those like Barazite go, since his injury recovery he has played well if we can believe the match reports…

  97. realsocialdad

    August 31, 2010 at 2:08pm

    shame oliver the injury knocked him back but think he deserves to be in the former has quality

  98. oliver

    August 31, 2010 at 2:06pm

    our youth development program serves two purposes: to grow first-team players, or develop prospects that can be sold for prospect. barazite may have been originally viewed in the former category, but may now be seen in the latter category. if it is the latter, then where he plays on loan might not matter. if he impresses at arnhem, perhaps the club can make the transfer permanent for a small profit.

    if that is not the case, his move to arnhem is a head-scratcher.

  99. W.A.T.H

    August 31, 2010 at 2:03pm

    RSD u sure about that…? we can chat 2 him re a free in Jan but can’t have him in Jan fro free it would only be next June he would actually sign…!

    small-bore dutch side. still in the top flight, but not one of the better sides. like rico, i am not entirely sure how this will help barazite’s development – not a particularly good league, i should think he can do much better staying in england, perhaps championship or first division. then again, barazite seemingly has been here forever, without really looking as though he will become a first-team regular – perhaps it does not really matter where he goes on loan, and perhaps he is not viewed as a long-term player for us.

    Hi agag, we def not getting schwarzer now, question is, does wenger have a plan b…. he doesn’t usually ;)

  107. agirlagunner

    August 31, 2010 at 1:54pm

    Hello, everyone!!

    rico, I maintain that Schwarzer is no improvement over Almunia; and Green’s WC fumble is entirely too fresh in my mind, I have no desire to sign him either. ;)

    Hey, KTR7! Long time. How have you been? We’ve been after rico to find you! :) :)

    WATH, howdy? I think the three-year requirement you mentioned relates to the homegrown rule re: the eight players to be named in the 25-man squad.

    I’ve never even heard of Vitesse Arnhem, oliver!:)

  108. realsocialdad

    August 31, 2010 at 1:51pm

    Nacer Barazite has joined Vittesse Arnhem on loan, according to Dutch outlet Voetbal

  109. K-TR7

    August 31, 2010 at 1:48pm

    Milan may have dinho,ibra,robinho and Pato as their fab4 next season.on paper it is the stuff of dreams but will it work?i hope so since i have always supported Milan in the SerieA.

  110. rico

    August 31, 2010 at 1:47pm

    oliver, thats a crazy move for him, he should be going to another EPL club to get PL experience….

    He needs to speed up a bit too KTR7 ;)

  111. rico

    August 31, 2010 at 1:46pm

    the playing for a british club is just for those like cesc and clichy WATH, and a few others in our side…

  112. oliver

    August 31, 2010 at 1:45pm

    barazite goes on loan to vitesse arnhem. according to a netherlands football site…

  113. K-TR7

    August 31, 2010 at 1:45pm

    I may be abit late on this but i love koscielny’s style.he looks like an italian type of defender (not maniacs like materazzi) who reads the game so well.if he bulks up he will be awesome for us.

  114. rico

    August 31, 2010 at 1:43pm

    That is what Sky have just said WATH, you can have as many under 21’s you want, so that means we can use all our reserves :)

  115. W.A.T.H

    August 31, 2010 at 1:36pm

    So that mean you can have 30 foreign players under 21 and you don’t have to name em and they can play for you..? if so whats the use of this 3 yr rule of having played for a British team..?

  116. rico

    August 31, 2010 at 1:18pm

    Didn’t realise that under 21’s don’t have to be named in the 25 man squad

    What about Dudek?

  129. rico

    August 31, 2010 at 12:45pm

    rsd, if wenger is watching training that means ivan the great is left trying to sort things out

  130. T-buzz

    August 31, 2010 at 12:41pm

    I think Cudicini’s past it. During his Chelsea days he was awesome till Muareen Special Ones came on board and benched him in favor of Cech. If he had left earlier, he would still be a top keeper but I guess the Roman’s money was too good to refuse…

  131. realsocialdad

    August 31, 2010 at 12:41pm

    have to wait for wenger to finish watching england training at 3

    This is from the Football Rumour site….

    Arsenal Rumours
    My very reliable source has told me that by the 6 o`clock dead line window Arsenal will confirm that they have signed. . . No one.
    Apparently they have tried to sign No One before but are confident this time they will get No one.

  163. realsocialdad

    August 31, 2010 at 11:44am

    August 31, 2010 at 10:58am

    Morning Folks,

    Great post Rico, but I’m not holding my breath for any of it; perhaps Almunia threw his shirt to the fans at BB just to show-off his tatoo, which says Gunner be here for ever :lol:

  196. W.A.T.H

    August 31, 2010 at 10:58am

  199. rico

    August 31, 2010 at 10:48am

    WATH, I don’t doubt he is a liability and just like you I want to see him replaced, but it’s not going to be Schwarzer, who will we get on final day, surely wenger has left it too late unless all this Swarzer stuff has been bull from the off….

  200. rico

    August 31, 2010 at 10:46am

    BBc report Schwarzer will not be signing for Arsenal!!

  202. T-buzz

    August 31, 2010 at 10:44am

    I’m not so sure Almunia’s game has improved as i navent really seen a change from last season so far. Perhaps a new keeper will rustle his feather to help him improve. He knows that Flapp is no better and Don Vito Corleone and Chsszny are still not ready so, he has been comfortable in goal as Wenger has been comfortable as manager! :(

  203. T-buzz

  205. W.A.T.H

    August 31, 2010 at 10:35am

    Rico, the waiter is a liability end off no matter who or what is in front of him…! IF we stuck with him all season its only a matter of time before he starts to cost us points, most importnt player in the team is the keeper and ours are piss poor, remember when GG bought Seaman in, they asked whast wrong with John Lukic, GG replied nothing at all John lukic is a great keeper i just thing David Seaman is the best……. Says it all….!

  206. T-buzz

    August 31, 2010 at 10:33am

    By the way Rico,
    Is it possible to have an Arsenal top-scorer section on the right side of the page please, probably before the “House Hero V_ _ _ _” section?

  207. T-buzz

    August 31, 2010 at 10:30am

    R.A, hell no..! lol
    One A.Wenger on this planet Earth is enough and I’m sure he’s not the blogging type. It makes me wonder sometimes, what does he do during his spare time or as a hobby…! Certainly not sharing a bottle of wine with Sir Alex-Red Nose or Sam The Bruiser Alladyce

  208. rico

  209. rico

    August 31, 2010 at 10:27am

    Thats the million dollar question WATH, was Almunia dire because Gallas was a moaning shouting old git of a defender and now he’s gone his game is clearly better, or is Almunia just as you said yesterday, an accident waiting to happen and all to often…

    I can’t see us getting Schwarzer now in any case…

  210. Red Arse

    August 31, 2010 at 10:25am

    Rico,

    If the bookies are confused we have no chance on second guessing Arsene!

  211. W.A.T.H

    August 31, 2010 at 10:24am

    Seems this T-buzz is taking liberties wants kisses hugs and allsorts and he wants to push in the “Q”…!

    :P

    I wouldn’t pay £4 mil for schwarzer……! 3 max…. Although do we want rid of the waiter or not…?

  212. Red Arse

    August 31, 2010 at 10:23am

    Hi T-Buzz

    That was an uncanny imitation of Le Prof. :-)

    You aren’t him in disguise are you? :-)

  214. rico

    August 31, 2010 at 10:15am

    Your on T-buzz :P

    You just hear him now can’t you, saying i tried to get this that and the other done on the last day but it couldn’t quite happen… He’s bloomin tight, to be fair though, I wouldn’t pay £4M for Schwarzer…

  215. rico

    August 31, 2010 at 10:13am

    Morning RA, that’s always been a gripe of mine too – he did it with Kos but ended up paying what they asked, why? just offer a sensible offer then negotiate and make the deal or move on…

    £4M for a keeper with one, maybe two seasons left is a lot of money, a keeper just to put pressure on Almunia..

    Betfair are suggesting it’s lloris wenger really wants, what do they know though ;)

  216. T-buzz

    August 31, 2010 at 10:12am

    Yeah, I know that fellow WATH was after a cyber-hug but why he decided to elbow me off the queue is what i dont understand (ha ha ha)
    Can I get a cyber-peck-on-da-cheek then, just to make him jealous? lol

    Morning R.A, Wenger really up the price then? Well, I guess he’s had to eat those chips and get some real money out… :)

  217. T-buzz

    August 31, 2010 at 10:08am

    Rico, dont be surprised with Le Boss’ usual, ” We er tried to zign but at zé moment eet ees a bit quiet,er we made a few enquirees but zé playerz pricees were a bit out of our range…”, while still holding the bag of chips from Holloway Road as offer for Shawrzer!

  218. Red Arse

    August 31, 2010 at 10:04am

    Morning Rico, your Post sets the day up nicely. :-)

    I’m quietly confident that we will get sod all from the Le Prof! :-)

    The papers report that we have upped our offer for Schwarzer to £4m. If we wanted him so badly why could we not have done that in the early summer and be done with it.

  219. rico

    August 31, 2010 at 10:03am

    T-buzz, the result on Saturday made my weekend a lot happier, especially going into the break…

    T-buzz, they were a disgrace, sign of desperation to unsettle cesc by using the players…

    Yeah Rico, the Barca army lost my respect quicker than Ben Johnson on steriods with all that nonsense that we were almost holding Cesc as prisoner?!
    To be honest, Jose will always be Jose and if he actually had a player of worth_money for Cesc, I’ll take it as well but he’s an intelligent man who wouldnt just let his best players go. I would take Higuain

    Morning T-buzz,

    Like you way of thinking re cesc, must admit that during all the saga i hoped that Jose would offer an amount we couldn’t refuse, but now after Jose comments he can take a hike…

    Inter, well thats a whole new bit of naughtiness ;)

    Rico you owe me a cyber hug!i found HH through legrove but i’ve been stuck in mod since Saturday.good to see the whole gang again.

    Morning all!

    If Inter offered £40m+Lucio for Cesc (whether he likes it or not )I’ll take that instead and that will p!ss Barca off for all the shenannigans they put arsenal fans through this summer! lol
    Nice post by the way, I aint a fan of Rob Green but he’s far better than Flappy and slightly better than Almunia. At this stage we should be looking for a decent GK that has presence in goal and knows how to communicate with his defenders. Funny you should mention Richard Wright, he sort of reminded me of Flappy!! lol
