Yet another of our favourite Arsenal players of days gone by wants to return to the club he loves. Sadly he’s too old do don his boots and go racing off down the left hand side of the pitch, but his knowledge of the game could certainly help a few of our players should it allowed to be shared in training.
We’ve been gifted in the past with great lefties and Marc Overmars is up there with some of the best. He made 142 appearances in a three-year spell with us and helped win the League and Cup double in 1998.
Overmars is currently technical director at Dutch club Go Ahead Eagles but he revealed that he’d jump at the chance to return to north London.
When people ask me what memories I have of Ajax, Barcelona or Arsenal I have to say that at one club I feel at home and that is Arsenal, if they were to ask me to do something I would love to.
I spoke with Arsene Wenger at the training ground and the facilities there are beautiful. It’s emotional to walk around there – it’s a beautiful place.
Oh to have him back twenty years younger!
Another old boy has been talking about his old club too, Anders Limpar was at the Everton game last week to see ‘his side’ lose. Prior to signing for Everton in 1994, he played 96 games for us, scoring seventeen goals and to this day he maintains he’s always been a Toffees fan.
Limpar has been very honest in a recent interview and he believes that the Arsenals thirst for commercial success has cost the us silverware and believes that Arsene Wenger’s refusal to spend big on a new keeper has also contributed to our barren spell. Here’s just a few of his comments.
We live in a commercial world of football and today it is all down to money.
They have a beautiful 60,000-seater stadium and they have more money but they haven’t won a thing yet since they moved. So you must ask yourself has the move been a success and the answer is commercially yes, but trophy-wise it has been a disaster.
I don’t rate the keepers at Arsenal and by having a poor keeper behind a decent defence, it has the knock on effect of making defenders have to think more than they need to during a game. The defenders obviously have no faith in the keepers behind them and that lack of faith effects their decision making.
What do you guys and gals think, is he right??
Seems our very own Jack Wilshere has been up to naughtiness again if you believe what The Sun reports this morning.
He’s been messing around with a lap-girl behind his girlfriends back. Here’s the link if you want to read the whole story.
Basically he’s been sneaking this girl into the team hotel, as well as taking her back to his grand-parents home and whispering sweet nothings in her ear. The Sun seems to be the only paper running the story this morning.
Arsene Wenger will not be a happy man. Was this the reason he was recalled from the England Camp? Can we now expect him to be injured until all this is sorted out? If it’s true, Jack’s stupid.
Wonder what will happen today when Jack answers his bail following his arrest earlier this year…..
Not to miss a rumor about players, this morning its about JET, apparently Roy Keane wants him on loan at Ipswich in January. I have two reasons for not believing this one..
JET will play a big part in our Cup run so if we are still in the CL, CC and CL after Christmas, then no chance!
And of course, Roy Keane could very well be sacked before the transfer window opens
That’s it for today folks, Tiny Totts up next
