Well I guess it was no great shock to hear Christiano Ronaldo scooped the Balloon D’Boring Trophy last night was it. Hopefully next year our very own Alexis Sanchez might be in the reckoning for the so called prestigious award. Or maybe not as he’s an Arsenal player…
Talking of such high calibre of players, Yaya Sanogo has officially left us for the rest of the season as Alan Pardew hopes the player can help his side avoid relegation. I hope he does well, stays fit and improves a lot. Then we can sell him. lol Ok, I’m kidding, a bit…. Maybe now Joel Campbell will get more playing time….
In other news, the players are raving about our fine performance on Sunday lunchtime and yes, it was good, very good but let’s see them replicate that level of performance a few more times over the next couple of months before they get too carried away. Trips to the Etihad and then WHL will be a far tougher test, get something from both and perhaps a lot more positivity will return to even the most sceptical of fans.
In between those two away trips is a tricky FA fixture at Brighton and a home match against a dreadfully out of form Aston Villa.
In other news, Jose Mourinho continues to attack the PL referees, his latest victim being Phil Dowd. After Chelsea lost to the Toots, apparently, he went on a rant in the tunnel shouting at Dowd:
You’re too fat to referee, you should retire. You’ve cost us.
The under tall one has clearly not seen Jon Moss lately, Dowd looks a trim figure and quite speedy in comparison to him…. But at least it’s Jose having a rant and not Arsene, people like the Portuguese man, they think he’s the best thing in football, when he talks they listen. Good, listen, and finally do something about the standard of officiating in this country. It’s long overdue.
We are getting towards half way in this months transfer window and all we have seen is departures. Ok it’s only two but take two out of a very fragile squad which seems to get one back from injury only to lose another, the situation is far from ideal.
Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko is doing all he can to attract the attention of Arsene Wenger by declaring his love for Arsenal. Winston Reid remains in the headlines too as a £3 million bid is being mentioned but if Arsene really wants the player, the longer he leaves it surely the less likely it is to happen, after all, Big Sam will need to find a replacement. Mind you, he may have already if he anticipates him being sold as that’s what organised managers do.
Then of course there is the saga surrounding Krystian Bielik. Apparently Arsenals best negotiators have been tasked with getting this deal done and dusted as quickly as they can but that all might be in vain as Hamburg coach Josef Zinnbauer believes they are very much in the race to snap him up.
Transfer rumours, just have to love them….
That’s it for Tuesday, have a good one…
