Bah. I was halfway through quite a detailed post and then my computer had a problem and I lost all my work. Frustrating. I really can’t be bothered doing it again so I will do a super-quick wrap-up of all the news that was floating around over the weekend.
Apparently Arsene Wenger was quoted in the News of the World saying that Arsenal are a selling club. The quotes sound dodgy to me and if he did make the admission then it is one of the stupidest things he has ever said in his time as manager of Arsenal. Effectively it gives competing clubs the initiative to come and buy out our players with the knowledge that Arsenal don’t have the money to refuse. As I just don’t think Wenger stupid enough to make this admission and the News of the World is a dodgy source at the best of times I wouldn’t be surprised to see him publicly declare himself as being misquoted within the next couple of days. Until then, nothing more to say on the matter.
Arsenal are being linked with moves to Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Obafemi Martins and Andrei Arshavin should the Emmanuel Adebayor to Barcelona move go ahead. Personally, I would welcome all three but Martins is probably the most likely to make the switch given he would probably cost the least.
Update: Peter Hill-Wood thinks Adebayor will stay but Alex Hleb will go. Interesting.
Jean-Pierre Bernes, the agent of Samir Nasri, said on Friday that his player will sign in ten days. Only seven days to go.
And that’s about it. I was going to mention that Justin Hoyte has declared his intention to stay at the club but I didn’t think it was important enough news. What’s that? I just mentioned it. Oh, so I did. Oh well.
Have a good day and apologies again for the rushed nature of this post. Blame my computer.
