Might I begin the morning with a hearty *boilk*? It does wonders for one’s stomach although I can still taste last night’s curry.
Not a lot to tell you about this morning. It’s a tale of two goalkeepers. Firstly Arsenal confirmed the news that Arseblog brought you weeks ago – that we have signed Lukasz Fabianski from Legia Warsaw. Arsene Wenger said:
We are pleased to have signed Lukasz Fabianski. He is a very good young goalkeeper who will provide good support to our squad. He has performed consistently well for Legia Warsaw in recent seasons and was rightfully rewarded with a place in the Polish World Cup squad. Lukasz will be a big asset our squad and we are looking forward to him joining us for pre-season.
Fabianski said the usual about great to be joining a big club, wants to win things with Arsenal etc etc. He’s certainly got a bit of pedigree and he’s the right age. For a number of seasons now I’ve thought we should be looking to bring in a keeper who can, all things going well, end up between the sticks for the next 10 years. He’ll provide competition for Jens Lehmann next season and with Jens looking to play in Euro 2008 that kind of competition is good.
On the way out though is Mart Poom. He’s joined Watford and I think I’m right in saying he’s never conceded a goal for Arsenal. He did only make a couple of appearances though. Good luck to him.
The People says Peterborough will sign young striker Jay Simpson who made history by scoring the first ever hat-trick at The Grove.
And that’s that. A truly exciting edition of Arseblog over and done with. I hope it didn’t cause too many palpatations.
