Yesterday saw a fine young Gooner depart for pastures new having obviously been considered not good enough to play for Arsenal.
Personally, I find it quite strange how certain players get and continue to get chance after chance regardless of the performance they put in, when others don’t even get a chance.
Henri Lansbury may not ever be one of footballs ‘greats’ but not many are, but what our club would have been guaranteed from him, is hard work, dedication and a commitment.
After all Arsene Wenger’s words about him about how he has a bright future and how he will be “a big player” for Arsenal, he’s now gone.
I truly hope that Henri’s career kicks off from here and proves to Wenger that he was wrong to have sold him. Hopefully we have first option to buy him back when that day comes.
Talking about players who give their all, one player who many fans believe doesn’t could be on the move in the next few days. Theo Walcott, well, probably more like his agent, has snubbed the latest contract extension offered to him by the club. Reports suggest he has until tomorrow evening to make up his mind. Sign or be sold on Friday.
£75,000 a week he is reported to have been offered, that’s not bad is it but if he wants more, then I guess he’s going to have to go elsewhere to earn it but if he really is happy at Arsenal, he’ll do the right thing and sign the contract on offer.
Liverpool and Manchester City are the clubs linked to him and I suspect the latter might be the favourites as they have just failed to reach an agreement with Swansea for Scott Sinclair. Or maybe Fergie will try and sign him up……
If he goes, he needs replacing but I strongly suspect he won’t be…
Not much else in the news really, other than Rennes confirm that no bids have been made for Yann M’Vila yet and the longer this drags on, the more likely it is he’ll stay in France.
Finally, well done to Paolo Di Canio and his Swindon side who battered Stoke City last night 4-3 in the Capital One Cup…
How did they score so many at The Britannia Stadium, when we couldn’t manage one??
Oh well, at least we won’t have to face Pulis in that Cup should we do well….
That’s it for another day, have a good one….
