Daft Arsenal transfer rumour of the day – Ferdinand?!?

It seems that the blazing English sun has started to get to one or two football journalists. Either that or they just fancied making something up to make the Arsenal fans spit their morning cup of tea all over the newspaper.

The latest Arsenal transfger rumour, if you can call it that, as reported by The Mirror, is that Arsene Wenger is preparing to make a shock summer swoop for Rio Ferdinand, the former England and current Manchester United centre back. The 35-year old is set to leave Old Trafford unless he is offered an extension to his current contract which expires at the end of the season.

Giroud ready to fire Arsenal and France to glory

Olivier Giroud may be waiting with a touch of trepidation to see which new players are signed for Arsenal this summer, but the French striker is fully aware of how important the season coming up is for him, for Arsenal and for his national side France. If things go according to his plans, it will be a fantastic year for all three.

Why Rooney to Arsenal could actually happen!

When I first heard the rumour about Wayne Rooney and his possible transfer to Arsenal from Manchester United, I laughed it off as one of the more ridiculous rumours in recent times. It was right up there with the idea that Nicklas Bendtner would go to Juventus and pick up a title winning medal.

One reason Arsenal fans don’t like Man United

The Arsenal fans were accused of having no class by Rio Ferdinand after the match against Manchester United on Saturday. In doing so, Ferdinand reinforced one of the reasons that Arsenal fans, along with most others, don’t like United. Hypocrisy.

Ferdinand’s ill chosen words were because of the away fans giving Robin van Persie some abuse. Has he never heard Tevez getting stick? It is part of football. Everybody knew that van Persie would get stick from the Arsenal fans after he chose to abandon us for our hated rivals.
