Ok, ok, don’t shoot the messenger. I’m just saving you buying the red-tops/internet to get your footie gossip fix!
What a joke this latest is which has been conjured up by Italian website Tutto Mercato Web.
They report that Arsene Wenger is looking to lure Alexis Sanchez, defender Martin Montoya and former midfielder Alex Song to the Emirates.
Song back to The Emirates, never, no way, not ever! Arsene Wenger couldn’t wait to accept Barcelona’s offer for the lazy player who all too often thought he was Messi, so no way will he want him back. Not at any cost! Wenger can appear stupid to some of us but he isn’t that stupid!
Martin Montoya is a 21 year old right back, who knows whether any link to him is true but if Sagna really is set to leave, a player of this young age is not what we need in my opinion. We already have one at the same age who is destined for great things. Unless of course, Jenkinson is heading for a move central. (yes, that’s where I hope he ends up)
Alexis Sanchez – well he’s an under tall forward who has suffered with injuries.
Two players who are NOT about to turn their back on us is Per Mertesacker and Wojciech Szczesny.
I believe in the philosophy of the club and that Arsenal will start to win again.
I have a debt to pay here. I owe them. I don’t want to go anywhere else. As long as they want me here, there is no ‘somewhere else’ and I have a contract until June 2015.
Then there is Per, our big German international. He’s said:
A change is not an issue. Our manager Arsene Wenger gives me absolute confidence, I play every game.
I can think of nothing else, but to stay at Arsenal.
So mischief makers. Go and pick on another club!!
A read a ‘nice’ article about Arsenal FC this morning in The Daily Telegraph, and it’s HERE if you want to read it.
Whilst we are all down in the dumps with the way the season has unfolded yet again, there other others within the club who still have a lot to play for before this season closes.
The youngsters are still aiming to win the NextGen Trophy and the Ladies are battling hard to win the Womens Champions League.
Arsenal and England player, Rachel Yankey was just a few days ago, help England to win the Cyprus Cup by scoring this goal.
Not bad eh!
Today the Ladies face Italian side, ASD Torres in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final.
It’s sad really, this game should be an evening kick-off but owing to the floodlights not being up to European standards at Boreham Wood, home fixtures have to be moved to the day. Of course, that in turn means support for the ladies will drop by thousands, as many who would travel to their evening fixture will be working.
Meanwhile, the clubs wonderful stadium and pitch goes unused for a couple of weeks…
Hardly fair is it?
I am sure many male supporters would scoff at the very idea of watching the womens game, maybe they’d add a few choice comments about it too but the reality is, they are the only team within the club who keep on managing to win trophies season after season..
The BBC are screening two programmes which are presented by Jacqui Oatley, of Radio Five Live.
The first is ahead of the Women’s FA Cup final on May 26, which will also provide a review of the FA Women’s Super League, and the second on July 8, looking forward to the Women’s European Championship.
Good luck to those girls, I hope they show the men how to win…
There’s only one place to end today really.
Faye White has decided to hang up her boots.
At 35 years old and after a long and very successful career with Arsenal, she’s finally giving in..
I never thought that I would win so much. I captained England and Arsenal for over 10 years and that’s brilliant. I look back and think I’ve done a lot and I’ve won a lot. I have to be thankful for that. I’ve won a lot and I’m really fortunate to have done that and played for so many years at such a wonderful club. I think it’s a great Club and that’s why I never moved.
I had offers in previous years, certainly around the time the American league started up. I knew Arsenal was a great place and really looked after the girls and did a lot for women’s football in this country. As the England captain, I wanted to play the game in this country rather than abroad. To spend my career at one club is pretty good.
We’ve been so successful over the years and have won a lot of trophies. I feel fortunate to have been a part of that. I won pretty much everything there was to win, including the WSL in my final season. There wasn’t much to come back and win really.
Michael Owen may have announced the end of his playing days, but Faye White will be missed by all Gooners, far more than him..
That’s it for today, have a good one….
