Do we have a Vardy back up plan if it fails? by KM
Hello fine ladies and gentlemen! So Arsenal looked close to sealing the deal with Jamie Vardy, but as ever until it’s on Arsenal.com you can never be too sure. The big problem? The Euros of course. A tournament that features half of Europe to put more games and more TV money on the table, which is an absolute killer for the players. This will disrupt the contract talks and it will skyrocket prices of players that played a few good matches in a team that has trained a few times together throughout the year!
Back to the main point of the English striker that will turn 30 in January. The move has stalled and Leicester will do whatever they can to stop their talismanic striker from leaving. What I fear is the wait. We will now wait and see what happens, while instead we should be going to the agents of Morata or whoever else is on our list.
We need a new striker and if we have to wait a whole month to understand whether we’d get Vardy, we’re just wasting our time. Man United will get Ibrahimovic and City are close to singing Aubameyang, who is a gem of a player! If City can rip Dortmund, why can’t we? We need to play hardball in the transfer window sometimes just like Real and Barca do.
I will be excited if Vardy comes over, but if he doesn’t I won’t cry me a river too. He got his incredible goalscoring record playing a completely different system and at soon to be 30 with one great season behind him I don’t feel it would be the greatest pain if we miss on him. But the main point here is we need to be building according to our plan, not the players.
If we need a new striker, CB, DM and a winger go and get them. Put at least 3 names in each bracket, prioritise and start hunting them down. A few years back we tried to sign Higuain and it didn’t work and we didn’t sign another striker. We cannot afford the same mistake over and over again.
Hopefully we will learn a lesson.
