Vidal, Cech? (DONE!) Or something completely unexpected? by KM
Hello folks. Are you swimming round the sports media ocean like a shark, trying to find a fallen transfer out of the surfing board like me? Well to date, not much is coming. A few rumors here and there but is there any truth to them or are people just trying to make money out of desperate fan clicks?
Anyway, we are expecting a Cech-in soon (DONE!). This is a marvelous addition. Now Ospina had a blinder against Brazil and suddenly people start pointing out to how good the Colombian is and pointing out his PL record. Well that’s the problem with Arsenal. We see one good game and suddenly we forget the reality. Szczezny was in desperate need of replacement and Ospina was the only candidate.
The truth is we should be ruthless. If we want to win the title, we need to select the best players we can get. Ospina’s OK record just aligned with the new approach we accepted – in which we actually try to defend. I think the Colombian should stay and we should let Szczezny go, because he has had too many chances, but Wenger likes the Pole and I think it’ll be the other way round.
In other news, Vidal has been mentioned but nothing serious. Now this rumour looks like girls makeup. If you put it on it looks pretty, but it hides the reality. We do need a new DM and Vidal might leave. Put the money we have in the mixer and Voila! You just leveled up at transfer story making ups.
He’d be a great signing. He’d bring up passion and energy in midfield, off of which our game will benefit. Also it’d be help and cover for Coquelin. But he’s 28 and he’d cost round 20 millions. I’m not sure it’s the Wenger kind of signing. Although Wenger might think that it’s time to take a risk or two if he wants to end his Arsenal career with a title in his hands.
It’d be a signing Ferguson or Mourinho would do without the blink of an eye. Arteta, Flamini and Diaby are either too old, incapable of, or usually injured to bring Arsenal through a season with a solid midfield machine.
The transfer window has seen a few moves almost unmentioned with Khedira and Mandzukic moving to Juve. I think they will assemble another cheap and interesting squad with out of favour players. Maybe we can take note of what they do.
Anyway, there could be a Wenger transfer done in the background but i doubt it. Wenger doesn’t like the publicity of transfers, but teams leak out speculations, so they bump up players prices. That’s how their “sources” work.
That’s that, we might get Cech confirmed today (DONE!), and Vidal if you trust the papers though! Have a nice week.
