Update: Thai food was good.
Gael Clichy has revealed that he didn’t have to think twice when signing a new contract with Arsenal a few weeks ago. He had the following statements to make:
“Once again, I really think that we can do great things with this team. That’s why I wanted to stay there in order to help my club to move forward and start winning trophies this year.”
Awesome. Just awesome. I didn’t think I could love any bald-headed Frenchmen more than I loved Patrick Vieira but if I could pull the stars from the night sky and give them to Clichy then I would. Hopefully Emmanuel Adebayor and Alex Hleb take a leaf out of his book and stay put as well.
Update: Cesc Fabregas is awesome too.
Moving on and apparently Gilberto Silva is being tracked by Juventus, Panathinaikos, Valencia and Darth Maul at the moment (obviously, I made the last one up).
Personally I’d like to see him stay as a back-up for whoever comes in to replace Mathieu Flamini but I can understand why – at 32 – he wouldn’t want to spend his remaining few years playing second fiddle, especially while he remains the captain of Brazil.
Finally today is the news that Arsene Wenger thinks Germany will win Euro 2008, pointing to their simplicity and efficiency as the main reasons for his prediction.
“They always have a kind of simplicity in their collective game. They never use too many touches, they keep it simple and they play as a team, and in the final third they are very efficient.”
I absolutely 100% agree and it is the main reason why I tipped the Germans at the start of the tournament. Strange that Wenger doesn’t get his Arsenal side to play with the same simpicity though, isn’t it?
Anyway, I’m off to have dinner. Keep it real.
Have your say on Gilberto, Clichy, Wenger or Euro 2008 by leaving a comment.
