Well guys, I don’t know if you have seen the headlines in the last couple of days but if you have you would have seen that England is about to head into the real winter time and snow has been forecast.
The areas predicted to be hit are London and the South East.
Thursday is when the temperatures are due to drop dramatically and should be well below zero overnight and snow, coupled with freezing temperatures could very well hit the football programme…
However, we all know here in the UK that things can change overnight and despite the weather warnings, we are just as likely to have rain, fog and warm temperatures, so I doubt we will see the sights as above for a few weeks yet.. Thankfully!
I have my snow broom out though, just in case – don’t want to be unable to get to the television at 5.30pm on Saturday. ;)
Yesterday we talked about Diaby and whether or not his days should be numbered with us and it was clear from the comments that he’s a player who divides fans opinion which brings me to another who has over the years done the same. Ok, he’s never played for us but no doubt many fans wish he had have done.
Yesterday David Beckham signed off from his five-year stint with LA Galaxy and he’s free to sign for whichever club he wishes to but at 36 years old, not many sides would take such a risk, not many sides would be able to afford his wages to be honest.
Right now he is fit, healthy and still helping to set up goals as he did for Landon Donovan, in LA’s 1-0 victory over the Houston Dynamo in the MLS Cup final. Nice way to sign off eh?
Having been allowed to keep fit with us before, maybe he should return the favour and sign on for the remainder of the season, what do you reckon – Beckham and Henry for five months, what could that do for Arsenal? Sell shirts……. ;)
One man who could do well for us is Lukas Podolski, he really could make a difference and if Wenger is really interested in this player then he needs to get off his butt and sort this out.
That lot down the road are struggling with the reported £17M price for Lardy asked by Citeh so they are supposedly looking further afield. Well, Germany actually and it seems they are interested in signing the striker that we fans believe would take the pressure off of Robin van Persie.
Citeh themselves are also reported to be interested in the German but, why would he go there? He loves playing and joining them would just mean time on the bench and would you rather play under a manager who is about to be up in court or would you rather be coached by one of the best?
Yes Arsene, that’s you, now go and get Podolski in Jan, make us all very happy and with it, reassure your captain that Arsenal is the best place for him to be. He knows it, just make sure he doesn’t forget it!!
Few stories to pass on, Chelsea are interested in Gary Cahill – well some guessed that already and having seen their dire defence in action at the weekend, they need him.
Apparently, two of our scouts were in Germany at the weekend watching Goetze score the winner in the 1-0 win over Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga and reports suggest that Ivan Gazidis and Richard Law will discuss our interest in Goetze with Dortmund officials this week, well more like later today or tomorrow.
Yeah right but if we are to believe Wenger has £50M to spend in January, anything could happen…..
Have a good day all…..
