Just a short post today as there is little to no news relating to OUR club.
We know what day it is, it’s Deadline Day and I strongly suspect most football fans will be wondering if their club will make a move today on what is their final chance to bag a bargain.
I don’t suppose it will be much different for Arsenal fans although the expectation is not quite so high as some.
To be fair, it’s been a very quiet transfer window to-date, only Chelsea, QPR and Newcastle have spent money and even that hasn’t been vast amounts.
However, their need may not be as great as ours and we still need a player who can score us goals and a player who can help us stop conceding them too.
Will we see Wenger finally dip into the market and spring one or two surprises like he did back in the summer or will we get to 11pm UK time knowing what we had in our squad yesterday we will have now until the end of the season?
Who knows eh but we do know there are a few players out there who would suit our needs very well……
One player who is reported to be on his way through the back door is Brussia Dortmund for 19 year old midfielder, Thomas Eisfeld, the deal is subject to him passing a medical and we’ll see today if there is any truth in that one.
Typical though, reports suggest his medical has to be a tough one, just to make sure he’s recovered properly from an cruciate ligament injury he suffered in 2009. Eisfeld has been playing for Dortmund under 19s this season and has managed six goals in twelve appearances, not bad for a midfielder eh?
Finally we seem to have found a referee that doesn’t hate us.
Following Alex McLeish stupid allegation made against Robin van Persie the FA were asked to get involved. However, Mike Jones has confirmed he saw the incident involving our captain and did not deem it to be ‘naughty’ – therefore Robin van Persie has no case to answer as the FA are not able to investigate further…
That’s about it really, unless you are interested in Mo Farah popping into the club to say hello to all, or Theo’s latest chat on the officical website telling us all he’s back to his best and wants to win trophies….
Or if you want to read about Ivan Gazidis telling the world how wonderful our club is and how we are still in three competitions but Manchester City aren’t and how the latter should be jealous of our achievements this season.
Is he for real??
I’d actually say we are in two, the FA Cup and Champions League as the chances of winning the Premier League are little to none! He also suggests that money isn’t everything… blah blah blah – Have a read if you can be bothered….. Heard it all before…
Well, I can’t be particularly, I just want to get to 11pm and know that Wenger has spent a few million of Stan’s hard-earned cash!!
Actually, it wasn’t that short was it… ;)
Have a good day all….
