Cesc believes|Eto’o to Arsenal?|It’s Newcatle first

Our schedule for the 2011/2012 season was announced this morning and it is worth noting that we kick off our campaign on arguably the same ground our we began our decline last season.

St. James’ Park it is, the venue of the infamous Newcastle comeback to draw Arsenal 4-4, in a game they were 4-0 down at half time. It will be important to start our season on a good note and also exorcise the ghosts of that game.

Cesc may have expressed his love and admiration for Barcelona, but he insists he is committed to the Arsenal cause. He also believes that we have what it takes to win major honours.

Speaking at a presentation in Madrid, Cesc told reporters from Spanish newspaper, Sport
“…Arsenal is a good team and a good manager and one of the most faithful fan bases in Europe. With those i believe we can make progress and one day win an important trophy.”

So it is as though Cesc is not only happy at The Emirates, he is confident we can win things. We all share his belief and it’s up to Arsene to get the required players to push past that finish line.

Reports making round have led us to believe that Arsenal is seriously considering a move for Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto’o who yesterday, made it known that he’s keen to test himself in the EPL.

The lad is 30 years and this may represent his last chance to make a big move to another of Europe’s major leagues. If there is player who defines the word “proven”, I doubt there’s anyone who fits that bill better than Sammy.

Whether an approach from us will be rejected is yet to be known. There have been talks of a money + player deal involving Nasri but I’m sure most gooners will prefer a straight cash bid in the region of £18m and Nasri staying with us.

One downside to the Eto’o story however is his nationality. The Cameroonian will be off to the Nations Cup in January and will be away for probably a month.

We already have Song, Chamakh and maybe Gervinho leaving. Sammy’s departure will leave us with only RVP. That’s a great risk, considering the Dutchman’s affinity for injuries.

In other news, reports have surfaced that our offer of Denilson in part-exchange for Shakhtar’s Brazilian midfielder Douglas Costa has been rejected. The Ukranians are said to be uninterested in Denilson, and who can blame them for that? It remains to be seen how we react to this. Personally, i will take any deal that rids us of Denilson.

Also, Gael Clichy’s agent Yvan Le Mee has come out to say that his client’s future at Arsenal will be decided in the next two weeks. Clichy has refused to sign a new contract at the club and with his contract expiring next summer, the club will be willing to sell him now to prevent him from doing a “Flamini” next year.

That’s about it. we should seal moves for Samba and Gervinho this weekend. Cahill may be added to the mix if Wenger is happy enough.

Trust us to bring you details of those deals as they happen; and you can follow us on twitter @goonermemoirs for more Arsenal stuff.

Have a swell day mates!

  1. eto,o and gervinho, sambs, cahil, hazard or parker we can win every things

  2. So until the rest of June, the conclusion is Cesc will stay at Arsenal. Let’s see what will happen in July or August. Will there be another saga in July? Hopefully not.

  3. could someone tell those journalist to stop twisting words to get attention thats deception and lack of integrity

  4. woolwichstilhere

    what do u expect cesc to say? he is only saying what any captain would say, after been treated that way. His body language last season, said it all.

  5. Let’s wrap up gervinho already, that transfer has dragged on too much unless of course they’re planning on announcing Gervinho & Samba/Cahill. Barca are idiots, they want a player they don’t need so the ball is in our court and kudos to Cesc who has openly said he’s not going to assk for a transfer. The other french idiots can learn from him. Buy Samba & Cahill and move Vermaelen to LB or buy baines to replace clichy. Let’s get all the deals done ASAP.
    Good post mate

  6. Cameroon is missing the nations cup so we have song for january and possible sami eto fil

  7. Atleast a well proven striker like Eto, will not only brings goals but boost moral of the players but i doubt Wenger will do that.

  8. can some one tell the professor to pls buy all the players mentioned

  9. Please Wenger do something and take LORIK CANA because he is leaving from Galatasaray. Lorik Cana can play as e DM and in the center of defense. For 5 milion pounds and Cana is in Arsenal’s hands! He has experience and was captain of Marseille and Sunderland! Don’t forget to ask Samir Nasri for him if someone doubt on him!
