Happy Sunday to you all. It’s all very quiet on Arse front. A couple of stories doing the rounds. According the News of the World Emmanuel Adebayor has signed a new 4 year deal with the club. His agent said:
Manu signed his deal. He wanted to stay and work with Arsene â€” although there were very good offers from Juventus and Manchester United. He feels at home at Arsenal and has a real bond with the fans. Now he wants to repay Arsene’s faith in him.
Good for him that he’s signed but give it a rest with the United and Juventus stories. I like Ade and I’m hopeful he can go on and improve next season but there’s no way those clubs were after him. United are chasing Huntelaar too which gives me a bit of a pain in my arse. He’s a good player.
Another French starlet is under our watchful eye. Jimmy Briand plays for Rennes and we face tough competition from St Etienne and and Lens for his signature. I couldn’t be more underwhelmed.
The Sunday Mirror reports that Birmingham are after Johann Djourou. Chances of it happening, slim to none by my reckoning. In a season when we lose Eboue and Toure to African Cup of Nations there’s no chance we’ll be selling any of our defenders.
And that’s it. What a dull as dishwater FA Cup final that was yesterday and Drogba scoring the winning goal. Pfffff. Thank fuck this season is well and truly over.
See you all tomorrow.
