The picture above is my view for the next week. Not too shabby, especially when temperatures here hit 25C yesterday. In Ireland! I know, right?
There’s little to report from an Arsenal point of view that isn’t made up tosh. And usually the things you really want to happen are the most made up of all. Still, there’s always Nicklas Bendtner to cheer us up and he says he’s on his way out of the club. Soon, he promises.
I am talking with five or six clubs at the moment over a permanent transfer. Things are agreed with Arsenal and I will decide which club I sign for in the next two weeks.
Which is good news, but I was reminded the other day, when looking back in the Arseblog News archives, that the second story we ever published was about Bendtner leaving, so this is something that’s been coming for a while.
I hope this year it does actually happen, that he finds a club where he can play regularly, but to do so he’s going to have to adjust his sights a little bit. Although his season at Juventus was a failure, a massive part of that was due to a bad injury. However, he did his reputation no good at all with his drink driving antics and then there’s the whole being the greatest striker that ever lived thing, which doesn’t help.
Quite what we might recoup in terms of a fee is anybody’s guess. A couple of million would be nice, he hasn’t completely Chamakhd himself into total worthlessness, but if I had to guess I’d say the fee will be ‘undisclosed.’
Beyond little else to discuss that might be found within the bounds of reality, so have yourselves a good Sunday.
