Tomorrow is the FA Cup replay against Swansea - a fixture that could really go either way. In fact, I think most of us think it’s a fixture we will lose.
So for today, it’s a break away from all of that and just look at the rubbish rumours doing the rounds.
First up is Stopilla Sunzu. Back in December 2012, reports were rife that this man was heading to The Emirates, in fact he said:
I will be travelling to England to sign a deal with Arsenal after the friendly game against Tanzania. I spoke to both Mr Katumbi (his current club manager) and Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger who assured me that I would not be going to London for trials but to discuss personal terms and possibly sign a contract.
Well that was either utter rubbish or Wenger has had a change of heart as this guy is now very close to signing for Reading.
Funny though, this guys is a defender/defensive midfielder and he is a very typical ‘Arsene Wenger signing’ of years gone by.
But not today!
Another player who won’t be arriving today is David Villa. Barcelona have ruled out any kind of deal between us and them this month. I’m not convinced though.
Then there is Zaha, according to Sky Sports, we are back in for the young Englishman and no doubt that will raise many eyebrows.
Maybe Walcott isn’t ready to commit himself to the club and that’s why we are looking for a winger? Well if Wenger really wants this young Englishman, he’d better hurry up, otherwise he’ll be heading off to Old Trafford!
Regardless, we still need a fit, reliable, strong defensive midfielder and according to The Sun, Diame is that man. £3.5 million is suggested to be firmly in Wenger’s hands, ready to tempt West Ham to part with their man.
Over the few weeks, maybe months, a few fans are wondering if it’s worth Arsene Wenger spending any transfer kitty we have for this month. If we finish outside the top four, there is a chance that Wenger could walk away.
So would you rather we just carry on as we are and see what the summer brings?
Or would you give him money if you were Kroenke and hope he makes the right signings?
That’s it for another day, have a good one all…..
