Well only one place to start I guess and that’s with the confirmation of Mathieu Debuchy as an Arsenal player.
Arsène Wenger said:
We are delighted to welcome Mathieu Debuchy to Arsenal Football Club. He has shown he can perform at the highest level with his club sides and also for France. He is a quality defender who has good Premier League experience and I’m confident he will fit in very well with us.
Mathieu Debuchy said:
I’m very proud to be joining a great club like Arsenal and to wear its colours, it’s one of the biggest clubs in the whole world. I’m looking forward to working with Arsène Wenger and to helping the team build on last season’s FA Cup success. Playing again in the Champions League is a big excitement for me and I will do my best to help Arsenal compete for trophies.
This signing doesn’t bring with it the kind of ‘wow factor’ that Alexis Sanchez did but nevertheless, we needed a strong, experienced player to come into the squad and Debuchy is just that and he’s used to the Premier League which is a bonus.
What this means for Carl Jenkinson is yet to be seen but my hope is that he remains an Arsenal player for a very long time.
A loan to a Premier League club who are going to play him each week wouldn’t do him any harm I guess IF he really has to go to another club to play, but should Dubuchy get injured, we’d be snookered and I just don’t see the point in signing/paying another youngster on loan who has no experience in this league as we are reportedly interested in doing.
Me, I’d keep him and tell him that he shows he’s good enough, he’ll play, regardless of the new arrival! We need depth and Jenks gives us that. There are many games ahead in this coming seasons campaign and Arsene Wenger will need to rest/rotate players, something he won’t be able to do at right-back if Jenks goes.
Mario Balotelli looks like he’s doing all he can to get Arsene Wenger interested in signing him by posing in front of our new Puma logo – there’s some kind of video in the Daily Star if anyone is that interested. I’m not…
The Express have finally caught up with the Morgan Schneiderlin rumours and believe that now Sami Khedira is now more likely to sign for Chelsea, we’ll turn our attention to the Southampton man..
All will become clear I guess as the days go by but for now, let’s celebrate our latest arrival…
Isn’t Friday a signing day??
Have a great day all…
