Just a bit of fun today.
If you were the manager of Arsenal and you had the money as Arsene has, who would go all out to sign before this transfer window closes?
I am of course, only talking about a striker, we all know we need a few others too.
In the red corner, we have Luis Suarez, a beast of a striker, literally. He displays many naughty sides to his character on the pitch and his recent push for a move shows he’s got a bit of a naughty streak off the pitch too. Some might say that his current club should just respect his wishes to leave, after all, we know very well that that sometimes happens. Of course it hurts but footballers respecting their contracts went out the window the day Anelka sulked if not before and how many years ago was that?
Then, in the other red corner, we have Wayne Rooney. What’s to be said about him. He’s a cheat as we all witnessed when we were on 49 and going strong, he’s feisty and likes give the television cameras the ‘f’ word when it suits and of course, he’s played the ‘I want to leave Manchester United’ card before, but that all appears to have been about money. It worked as he soon got a pay rise. There is plenty more I could say, but that would mean getting personal and that’s not always nice is it. I know I look in the mirror and wish…. I suspect he does too as I suspect many of you out there in the world of Arsenal fans.
The one thing Wayne Rooney has on his side is he’s English, the England fans love him, the FA love him and the football pundits love him. Good old Wayne they say, England rely on him, just like they used to David Beckham…..
What they both have in common is goals. They can score for fun on most days. Feed them a chance and they will often bury it before most other strikers have even thought about what to do with it.
In a perfect world, we’d wake up on September 1st to the news that we’d signed both, with Arsene Wenger explaining that the delay was purely about saving a months salary on both players which would I guess be somewhere around £1.5 million – understandable delay I’d say but yes I know, that isn’t going to happen….
So come on, who would you prefer us to sign, you can only pick one!
Maybe Arsene Wenger will make all his signings on the 1st of September, after all, if four new players were given a £100,000 a week salary, how much would he have saved by leaving it two months…….
Probably as much as a new squad player would cost…
Thank goodness the transfer window doesn’t shut until the 2nd of September eh…..
Talking of signings, all sorts of stories are doing the rounds suggesting that we have agreed a deal to sign Luiz Gustavo from Bayern Munich. I believe this originated from Twitter, was repeated by The Metro and this morning all the Sunday newspapers have added their spin on the story. Something like that order anyway..
Even though we beat Man City 3-1 yesterday, Arsene Wenger has admitted our squad is a bit thin:
I think what is important is the strength of the squad. Today is one game. We want to play 55 games and we are maybe a bit thin squad-wise to go through a whole season.
Really, well I’d never have guessed after all the players we have cleared out!
I didn’t see the game, just the goals and what good ones they were too.
Less than a week before the Premier League kicks off again…
Have a good day all……
