Let us start with our old chum Paddy V who has been telling the BBC that Arsenal need to sign two or three top class players to show Thierry Henry we mean business and so he’ll stay at the club.
Thierry wants Arsenal to show they want to stay at the top of English football and European football. If that is not the case Thierry will have to ask himself what is the best for him and in the end decide what is best.
Right so. You know what’s funny about our last two captains? All this talk about doing what’s best for themselves and very little talk of doing what’s best for Arsenal, the club that gave them such a platform for their talents. Maybe, just maybe, Arsene Wenger might sign two or three players and still decide to sell Thierry if he thinks it’s the right thing to do for the club. There in lies the difference between the manager and a player earning Â£100,000+ a week with years left on his contract. Samuel Eto’o can’t wait for Henry to arrive in Barcelona blindly believing that the two of them will play together – and here are some pictures of Henry and some model at the event mentioned in that Times article.
Vieira also thinks that without Dein Arsene Wenger’s future at the club is under doubt. Obviously Dein was the orange glue holding everything together and the rest of the people at Arsenal are such witless simpletons that they simply cannot go on without him. He’s right. In fact, I’m considering my future as an Arsenal blogger because of Double-D’s departure. Yes, there have been rumours about Barcelona blogs and even a Milan blog but all I can tell you is at the moment I’m an Arsenal blogger. If the club sign two or three top players then they will have satisfied my ambitions as supporter and I will stay because that is the right thing for me to do.
Chairman MC P-Diddy to the H-W on the West Syeeeeeeeed met with Satan Kroenke and said:
It went perfectly well. I hope we will be able to work with him in the future just as we would with any interested people.
Which is very diplomatic but the right way to go about things with a person who owns a large chunk of the club. You cannot simply ignore the fact and hope he goes away and leaves his shares as a present to an Arsenal supporting orphan who then dies and leaves them back to the club in his will. No doubt the subject of the Orangeman came up and a fuller statement is expected from both parties sometime this week.
Jeremie Aliadiere has completed his move to Boro. Good luck to him and his glass knees and glass ankles and glass back and glass bones and glass organs and glass skin and glass limbs and glass torso up there.
Many years ago when the old North Bank was being constructed there was this horse and the horse was rather a bit fond of his drink. He would come to work at the site to pull stuff around but often he’d nip off for a swift pint and a chaser in the middle of the day. One evening when everyone had knocked off he realised he’d left his nose bag in work so he stumbled out of the Bank of Friendship, which was known as The Otter’s Quim back then, and went back to get it. By the time he got there though the fresh air had made his drunken head even more drunken and he fell into the foundations. The next morning some Irish lads who had been hired for the job laid down the tarmac and nobody ever saw old Norman the Horse again. Until yesterday.
Right, see you all tomorrow. We better make one of those signings today or I’m getting my agent to talk to FC Barcelona blog.
