Possible ins and outs? When will be our first signing? by KM
Hello everyone. Did you get your day rolling from the morning off? Whats up with the Arsenal news lately? Well we are at our usual Arsenal state of transfers. We’re linked with some people, then the window seems like its frozen then some news pops up again and so on.
The Petr Cech story is taking too long. Latest Skysports news say that it’ll take until the middle of next week to get a medical. I just wish it happens quicker. The earlier we do the business, the better. We need to get him on the training pitch, to get some understanding with the defence and his new team mates.
Regarding the defence, reports claim that Laurent Koscielny is on Real Madrid’s radar to replace Sergio Ramos, who the papers are shipping to Man United. Now I can see where the interest comes from. Laurent is one of the most underrated center backs in Europe, when in fact he’s one of the best.
He just plays at a team where everything is so focused on attacking football, the defence frequently gets exposed. But Kos has great pace for a CB, good tackling and marking abilities, and he brings a goal here and there. He’s one of my favourite players and I hope we keep him.
His contract is till 2017 and I hope we work on it. If we add Cech, a new striker and a new DM we’ll be in the mix for the trophies. Hopefully Arsene can persuade him with some magical words and a few good signings.
Real Madrid looks a great place to go on the surface, but scratch that and it’s a massively misguided machine with a purpose to destroy the opposition standing in the way of trophies in every way possible. Fantastic players and managers go in and out like flies and I hope we lurk around for some gems that might fall out of their basket.
In other news, Sanchez featured in a ill-tempered Chile – Uruguay game which ended with a home victory of 1:0 against 9 men. I have a problem with those international tournaments that they’re never aligned with professional football clubs, who pay those players, and play them every week.
Sanchez was over-used, which Wenger publicly said, and still he has to go to South America and play more games in the immense heat. Last years World Cup meant we had our German trio back in good shape after a third of the season had passed. He deserves a good rest, but I hardly see him against Chelsea on August 2nd.
Anyway, that’s all I got. See you in the comments.
