Robin van Persie has completed a double success after being named Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year. Our captain was named PFA Footballer of the Year on Sunday and he has now followed that up with another award.
Wayne Rooney was in second place, Paul Scholes third and Clint Dempsey fourth.
Denilson’s lawyer has apparently been in London this week, trying to secure and extension to our midfielders loan deal with Sao Paulo but the club have denied him permission.
Reports suggest that Wenger wants the 24 year old back in time to start pre-season training in July.
Yes, however, maybe the bigger picture is that Wenger doesn’t want to scupper any chance of finally getting Denilson off of our books and to make sure we don’t lose him for free at any stage.A disappointed Denilson said:
I would stay another six months, but the decision was not mine, I have a contract with Arsenal and I have to stick to it.
We all know Wenger tried to turn Denilson into a defensive playing midfielder but it didn’t work back then and it’s unlikely it will work again with us, he clearly doesn’t want to be an Arsenal player so why keep him?
If Wenger wants an out an out defensive midfielder, we all know there is one in France who would jump at the chance of joining our club. Go get him Arsene!
Talking of midfielders, that arrogant buffoon Stuart Pearce reckons Jack Wilshere will take part in the Olympics, if he says so!
Will managers have a veto on their players going? Of course not, no. We are talking about Great Britain here, the Olympic Games. This is an opportunity of a lifetime.
Wenger has said the Olympics would be “the worst idea” for Wilshere, 20, who has not played this season.Pearce responded:
I can’t change that opinion. But it’s not of great concern to me. If I make one selection proviso for one manager, I’ll have to do it for everybody.
The most important thing for me is for Great Britain to win a gold medal. I don’t want to get into a tit-for-tat with Arsene. It seems every two years with the Under-21s we go through this same charade, so I’m not prepared to do that.
Jack is on the shortlist at this moment in time. He’s been out a hell of a long time and Jack as a player is paramount in my mind.
What an arrogant man, Wilshere hasn’t kicked a ball all season and there is no way he should even be on any shortlist. The only thing Jack should be doing this summer is resting and Arsene Wenger and Arsenal football club need to stand firm.
That’s about it for today, other than Chelsea winning last night means we really need to pull our socks up and get three wins from our remaining three fixtures. Fourth spot may no longer guarantee Champions League football.
Have a good day all…..
