It seems Dimitar Berbatov’s days are numbered at Manchester United. Despite being Manchester United and the league’s top scorer last season he was left out of the Champions League team and didn’t even make their bench.
He’s suggested to be up for sale for just £7.5 Million.
I know he’s a bit of a sulk and often looks as if he’s not interested in playing the game but every now and again he wakes up and finds the back of the net. We once had a striker like that and look how many goals he scored for us in his Arsenal career.
I am not comparing the quality of the two though – Berbatov is nowhere near the quality of Henry….
At thirty years old is his passed it or does anyone think he could be just what we need for a couple of seasons?
Aston Villa have slapped a £16 Million price tag on Ashley Young – With Liverpool and Manchester United in the chase to secure his signature, surely if we are going to show that we mean the business next season it’s time for Wenger to get in there first and sign him. That amount of money isn’t a rip off, he’s young, English and has a great future ahead of him and he’s an Arsenal fan so what other signing could be better?
Roma and Seville are interested in Denilson so the papers report – personally I am not fussed where he goes as long as we get a decent price for him.
Jack Wilshere has been talking about next season and how it would be a disaster if we don’t finally win a trophy. He reckons we are too soft and need to get tough, not just on the playing side of our game but with the referees. He was speaking ahead of the England game on Saturday:
We know that. The fans feel it. We feel it. We just need to win a trophy. Arsenal are a big club and we need to be winning trophies. We need to win them to keep our big players.
We must be more aware and have a bit more aggression. We’ve got some players that can do that but we have to go as a team.
It’s no use just Robin van Persie going because it looks like it’s just him having a go at the ref. If we all get round him…You just see the other teams do it and you think ‘we need to do it as well. Man United are the best at it. They get round the referee.
We have to be more of a team and be more aggressive and show more authority.
I’m not sure I agree with him about having a go at the referee, when I see other teams surround them and protest at decisions it looks awful. In fact I often think ‘If I was that ref, I’d send a few off’.
Surely the best way is for the Football Association to sort the standard of refereeing out, if they started to be more fair and dealt with every incident the same regardless of who is playing, there wouldn’t be the need to question so many decisions on a match day.
In any case, if we start doing that we all know what would happen don’t we?
