No Gervinho, Samba Begs To Leave & Vela Survives The Chop
As I said a few days ago on twitter, the ‘deals’ for Gervinho & Samba are about to rival that of Arshavin & Nasri in terms of how long they took to materialize. We’ve been linked with the Ivorian for God knows how long and yet nothing of substantial evidence to prove it. It was reported last week that we had agreed personal terms and all that remained was a few and it would all be sorted out this week. Unless my calendar is faulty, then today is the last day of a working week.
Pre-season starts in a few weeks and teams have bagged some if not all their signings and they get to blend with their new mates before the pre season starts and here we are, not one person has moved out of the club & not one has moved into the club(please don’t say Jenkinson), all is well with the world. Are we being lied to? Or are we part of an elaborate joke that will have Arsenal sign 5 players in one day and go ‘BAM!!! YOU’VE ALL BEEN PUNK’D. If only.
Unto Samba the 2nd of the only targets we’re sure the club is after, we should have gotten him in January but Wenger’s frugality & failed psychic powers(along with that of the physios,that claimed TV5 would be back soon) we failed to.
Now its proving a problem, B’burn have sold Jones and are not about to lose his defensive partner and club captain without having any suitable replacements so we’re at an impasse. BUT have no worries, he made a cry yesterday night just like Moses did to the Egyptians that he be let go if Arsenal comes along. Oh did I mention we’re the club of his dreams, nope, not Madrid or Barcelona. Goody!!! Arsene make it happen. 12M is not too much you know considering you spent 10 on the average Kozzer.
Of the many facing an exodus at the club, our curly haired doll faced Mexican has just been told he’s not one of them after using another of his many lifelines to survive the chop. I’m a big fan and I blame Wenger for his poor development, deploying a fox-in-box-striker on the wings a la Bendtner.
Going into this weekend on a disappointed note but it was premeditated so I’m not hurt, we’re about to be reduced to scrambling for transfer info for the next few days. Also there’s a report that Arsenal.com is planning on closing the fans forum on the site, apparently the fans have hurt the feelings of the club chief Gazidis and Wenger with their cry for improvement. What a world we live in aye? Notice how I did not mention the derisory £31M bid Barca made for Fabregas. Caroll worth more than Fabregas? You must be retarded.
From wherever you’re reading, hang in there, its tough and depressing but so have the last six years. Have a splendid day.
