07.34 – Despite not having two shillings to call our own, Seville managed to turn down a €15m bid from Arsenal for star attacker Jose Antonio Reyes. This is a player that AW has had his eye on for a long time and has long been suggested as a replacement for Dennis Bergkamp. This either means Arsenal have a few quid to spend, or someone rang up Seville pretending to be Arsenal for a laugh.
Seville’s President is quoted as saying ‘For that price I told them we’d send them his boots.’
Rami Shaaban says he’s not preturbed by the thoughts of a new keeper being signed. “I don’t care to be honest because I have to concentrate on my game and not worry about others.” He’s Swegyptian you know.
What a lovely guy Harry Kewell turned out to be.
I have to say in days of yore, Arseweb was my port of call for all my Arsenal news. I can remember many a holiday abroad looking at the site to see if we’d signed anyone. Well, I did during one holiday a few years ago. Still, it’s been a while since I’d gone there and I’m shocked. They haven’t updated the newsreel since 20th of June. Is it RIP Arseweb?
Apart from that, there’s little else going on in the world of Arsenal. If I keep saying ‘I have a feeling something big is going to happen today’, one day I’ll be right.
