Koscly finally done, Arsene promises more and it’s Cesc against Robin!

Laurent Koscielny

So it’s official! Laurent Koscielny has finally signed and is now the latest gunner affiliated to N5. The young French lad who joined yesterday from FC Lorient is expected to wear the number 6 jersey as from next season. I feel good that we have signed someone at all but on the other hand what’s the use if they can’t do what they are paid to. Koscly is a highly unknown element who has not really been exposed to “top class” football, but hey, who says he cannot make the jump? He was extremely excited to have joined us and seems really eager to play in the Premier League.

“I’m very excited to be joining Arsenal. They are one of the biggest teams in Europe with many great players. I am very confident; It takes a lot of work especially in the defense. You need to know your colleagues very well and you need to work hard every day.” He said.

Meanwhile Arsene has confirmed this morning that he will be looking to add one extra body to the defence. This is good news and considering that we’ll probably be losing both Gallas and Campbell, bringing in Koscly and the new guy to replace them is just reasonable…two out, two in.

Come Sunday 11th July the two most consistent and dare I say the two best teams in the World, Spain and Netherlands lock horns in the World Cup final. But this is not the only contest going on that night. Also, Arsenal’s two most influential and arguably best players are on either side of the field. While Cesc is not likely to start for Spain, Robin bar any injuries is a definite starter. It is a pity that Cesc has had a tournament to forget, making just 3 substitute appearances the whole time and still he wants to head to Barcelona; the same team that bankrolls the players who consign him to the bench a la Xavi, Iniesta and Busquets.

While I definitely love Cesc more (that in itself is subject to his allegiance to the Arsenal) I will be rooting for a Netherlands win, not only because Robin is more faithful to Arsenal, but also because I will like to see Wesley Sneijder complete a wonderful year and maybe pick up the Ballon D’Or award for this year. I do not see anyone else who compared to him this last football year. Yes, Messi and Ronaldo lit up the La Liga last season, but to what end? Wesley was the heart of a team that won the treble and (by my wish) a World Cup winning side, scoring vital goals and countless assists. What more can you ask of him?

Anyways gooners, whatever happens on Sunday, an Arsenal player will definitely smile back to the London Colney. Who it is, we really do not care. On Monday, lots of decisions will be made by various players as to where they’ll be plying their trades next term. Seriously? I really think a loss just might rid Cesc of his blindfold and make him use his brains, stay and play his heart out for us.

Let’s all see as things pan out in Madiba’s land but be sure to get news and updates from us.

From wherever you are reading, have fun.

  1. Howdy.

    We certainly need an extra defender. Starting the season with only 3, two of which are untested at Premiership level, wouldn’t be the smartest idea.

    The question is who? Well, I like Mertersacker. He’s bleedin’ huge and reads the game well, he’d to well alongside Vermaelen. But, I think we’ll start with Koscielny as the other first choice.

    I’ve got an Arsenal blog all of my own now, by the way, please have a look-see if you get a moment.

  2. yea mate. I completely agree with the need of an extra body at the back; and truly, Mert wont be a bad idea.
    As per your blog, send the details to my email address:
    Let’s see what we can do from there.
