Morning all. First off thanks to Tom for filling in yesterday at short notice despite what a badger did to his head.
It’s a very quiet Monday morning with little to report. The Independent reveals that Chelsea will up their bid for Ashley Cole after discovering Eric Abidal would cost nearly as much and not even Chelsea are stupid enough to pay that much money for a player as average as him.
JosÃ© Antonio Reyes has been talking to AS again, saying:
I’ve said it to Wenger and the president of Arsenal, the offer offer from Madrid is irresistable to me, it’s a dream I want to complete, and now the only thing is missing is an acceptable offer for Arsenal. Wenger knows that I’m going. He knows I’ve had problems adapting to life in England. If we don’t reach an agreement [on the transfer] it will be bad for Arsenal and for me.
He said this while wearing a Real Madrid kit and having the Real Madrid logo tatooed on his arse while 50 strippers with Real Madrid written across their tits danced for him to the tune of ‘Y viva EspaÃ±a’.
What more can we say about it that we haven’t already said? I wonder is the hold in negotiation something to do with the fee or us trying to take a player from Madrid that they don’t really want to sell. Beckham, perhaps?
Anyway, we’ll see what happens this week. Something has to happen this week, doesn’t it? Doesn’t it?!
