If you believe The Daily Star this morning, Wenger is reported to have told Robin van Persie he is happy with his current squad! The report is from a source in Holland although it’s probably from 2004! ;)
Young Guns report that Arsenal have agreed to sign Olney Soccer Club midfielder Gedion Zelalem, following a trial. The 14-year-old will join the Gunners on his 16th birthday, in January 2013.
He’s not what we need now and this news doesn’t excite me one bit but another one in the bag for the years ahead, one that suggests Arsene Wenger is going nowhere for a long time.
With just eight days to go until ‘that day’ Wenger has suggested yet again that he’s prepared to re-enter the transfer market before the 31st August:
Yes overall we will buy. Maybe people feel I am stubborn, but I am not, I just want to do the best for the team and buy the right players.If I have shown one thing in the last 15 years, it is that I have brought in good players.
We will bring as well experienced players. People just say ‘buy’ but it is to buy the right player which is difficult.
Yep, he’s right, he has brought in some good players, very good players in fact but he’s also signed a few shockers! I hope he steers clear from the latter in the next eight days.
Yep, eight days, that’s all there is left for him to get a player or two to make us complete.
Where has this transfer window gone, it seems like only yesterday it opened and yet here we are, just a few days away from in slamming shut for another four months…
Then, what we have is what we have…..
However, if Wenger is truthing, that won’t only be what we have today, we’ll see, eh?
Today should be interesting, the travelling squad to Italy should be known later today prior to tomorrows massive fixture against Udinese – and no doubt most Gooners are wondering not only whether Samir Nasri will travel, but will he play…
If he plays, that’s it, no move to Man City or indeed any club that features in the Champions League no doubt, also his value will decrease hugely.
Will Wenger take that risk on a player who will walk for free next summer?
Will Nasri play and then surprise us all and sign a new contract?
I think if he travels he’ll play from the start, why would Wenger bother taking him otherwise?
The Football Network have further reported on the alleged divide between Wenger and The Board, have a read.
Got to leave it there for today, few internet problems, bloomin weather!!
Have a good day all….
