It’s not about his qualities. Nor his attitude. And certainly not his FOREHEAD. It’s the way Arsenal have conducted the transfer. For most, the interest is a player is followed by a quick snapping of him in just a matter of days. Not much changes for us, just the matter of “days” changes to one of ”months”. All I know is Wenger wants to save every single penny on every single transfer, maybe to buy a cream for a “wrinkle-free skin”. Who doesn’t? We all love a bargain but does that mean you wait for a year to buy a pair of shoes just because you’re saving a couple of bucks. No?I know!
The very fact that last year the players whom we bought early had a great impact and those who joined late(Squillaci) may just be in for a ‘bye’ this season. Not that it’ll again happen for sure but it’s quite likely it does. Also, when the season ended, I’m sure Wenger would’ve thought about the departure of Cesc and maybe Clichy. But more than most, he’d have been thinking about giving Nasri a new contract and Nasri accepting it with a grin. Little did he know how Nasri would hold us to ransom.
About Gervinho, it’s looked so so predictable that when it’s finally official, I don’t get THAT pleasure which I’d get if, let’s say, we sign Cahill tomorrow. That’s what’ll get the fans excited and cheered up. Not that the Gervinho transfer doesn’t, but you get the point.
About my thoughts on Cesc and Nasri, I can’t ever imagine Arsene making a stupid mistake again and let Cesc and Nasri leave at the same time. Even if that means risking letting him go on a Bosman transfer next year. Of course, he might sign a new deal and/or Cesc might stay. And we might win the quadruple next season. And obviously Tottenham get relegated with Bale being suspended for life……. erm I went a bit too much along the tangent, didn’t I?
The truth is, both are Arsenal players and if the club doesn’t want to sell, it doesn’t. Cesc is too big a professional guy to force a move.And how can I forget his love for us? About Nasri, I honestly don’t know. His interviews have worried me. And probably worried Arsene. If there’s any person to gain his reputation back which has dealt a certain blow among the fans, it’s Nasri himself. Commit to a long-term deal without more fuss and ALSO score some hattricks against Spurs. Though one against Barca will do…surprised I KNOW(hehe) we’ll again be pitted against them this year.And the next…..till Cesc finally moves to Barca. They’ve got everything planned with their brother and sister and everything in UEFA. Fabregas returns to Barca for the away tie, meets Pique and co,gets sentimental and all that.
One thing that’s got me crazy is how Arsene stressed again and again on the lack of our “defensive efficiency” last season and we’re yet to buy a decent defensive player. No Cahill, no Samba, not even that French guy we’ve been monitoring since ages. None. A certain Carl Jenkinson has arrived to push Sagna. Give him some competition. But for a 1m pound player, I think that’s it. Sagna is the league’s best right-back and if CJ is able to provide enough competition, it’ll do the job for me. Don’t forget there’s Eboue as well. And he’s no slouch.
Without much ado, let’s talk about Edu. Yeah Eduardo’s the one I’m referring to. I recently watched his 2 goals against Arsenal in CL along with some others. And the way he’s finished them has got me wondering,”Why the hell did we sell him.” I mean we could have loaned him last year. Why sell? For me, I’d happily take him back now that he’s recovered from his injury. And I’m pretty sure he’ll scoring goals right,left and the center.
On a much more personal note, I apologize for not writing for so long. As I’ve already mentioned, I had this BIG exam on Sunday which I was preparing for. Didn’t go great though
That’s it for today. By the way, do any of you know Gervinho’s full name???
