So another day passes us by without change.
We still sit at the bottom of the ‘summer signings’ list having spent a big fat zero pounds….
Will today be the day that changes?
Somehow I doubt it but I can only hope like the rest……
Apparently we have been interested in signing Ozil, Benzema and Di Maria from Real Madrid but all three players have reiterated their desire to stay with the La Liga giants – whether or not that is just players talking the right talk who knows but if it’s all true and they were targets of Wengers, what will he do now?
Were they a plan A, or a plan D? I thought Higuain was a plan A, after all we agreed a hefty £25m deal with Real Madrid until they moved the goalposts, at which point Wenger walked away from the deal. When asked why, Wenger said ‘because he was not a special target’.
So who our the ‘special targets’ I wonder. I’m beginning to doubt that Arsene Wenger knows.
Juan Mata is another Wenger has hinted about, having missed out on him a few years ago when he was cheaper, I strongly suspect we wouldn’t go back now that he’s valued much higher. In any case, Jose Mourinho has said he’s not for sale…
At least the days are ticking by and we’ll soon be put out of our misery and then we’ll know exactly where we are and who we have…
One we do is totally looking forward to the NLD on Sunday and despite the neighbours spending big, Theo Walcott believes we are still stronger than them..
What’s he smoking I hear you all say…..
When asked if Tottenham are stronger, he replied:
Not at all. I feel we’re very, very strong.
Everyone makes out our squad is very weak and there are not many of us, but we showed in the last few games that we can bounce back from a bad result, proving a lot of people wrong. Every club is different and Tottenham invested their money very well.
For us players we just want to do a job on Sunday, we don’t care if they have brought in £30 million stars.They have some very good players and a very good manager, but we need to make sure we focus on ourselves. The way we’re playing at the moment we believe we can beat anyone.
Tottenham are playing very good stuff at the moment but we are looking very sharp so for the neutral it’s going to be a pretty impressive spectacle.
One that we better win!
The Capital One Cup draw has dealt us a tricky tie away against West Brom which will take place on the 23rd of September.
In the gossip pages – well there’s not a lot.
The Daily Mail suggest St Etienne midfielder Josuha Guilavogui is the backup option if we can’t get Cabaye. He’s 22 years old and 6′ 2″ so he sounds the ideal build, just what he is like as a player though I don’t know. Maybe one of you do…
Other than that, Gareth Barrys name pops up again in the same paper…!
Finally, it’s the Champions League draw today, let’s hope for a ‘nice’ group….
That’s it for another day……
