A pretty quiet morning with the main news being that Ashley Cole is not included in the squad to face Dinamo Zagreb tomorrow night. Of course this heightens the speculation about his possible sale but let’s also bear in mind he’s just back from his honeymoon, has claimed to be sick so he hasn’t trained and is probably in no shape to play anyway.
However, this could be an interesting week. For the first time in ages we were linked with players yesterday as the Sunday tabloids went into overdrive.
I’m reliably informed that we are in negotiations with a number of players, one of which wants to see how we go against Zagreb before committing, and although I don’t have any names it’s rumoured that a defender and a midfielder will be coming in. Now, I don’t know what flavour of defender or midfielder, it could be a left back and a central midfielder or a winger and a central defender. All I know is that there is some action, at last.
We’ll wait and see what happens.
Not much else happening in terms of the team to be honest. We should hear something from the boss ahead of tomorrow’s game.
For Mac users who have been unable to use Arsenal.con’s TV online service – you can now by downloading the flip4mac plugin for Quicktime from here. I haven’t tested it myself but I’m reliably informed it works perfectly. Thanks to David for the info.
Finally, as some of you know I’m leaving Barcelona at the end of this month to go back to sunny, tropical Dublin. If anyone had the time to get in touch and give me the low down on broadband providers there I’d appreciate it.
Ok, that’s it. Till tomorrow.
