The Liverpool defender and Scary Monster Martin Skrtel is feeling insulted by the new contract on offer at Anfield and could be leaving the club this summer. The Slovakian hardman may be 30 years old but he has seemed to improve with age, and has today admitted that he would be willing to move to any other club except the Scouser’s biggest enemy Manchester United.
While Arsenal were inflicting more misery on Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool for the second game in a row, we handed a great advantage to Blackburn Rovers, the Championship side that will try to return the favour by knocking the Reds out of the FA cup on Wednesday.
I know that a lot of Arsenal fans were hoping for a draw in the local derby between Manchester United and Liverpool at Anfield yesterday. With both clubs appearing to Arsenal´s biggest rivals for a top four finish, a draw would have meant that we had a decent gap of three points above United.
Arsenal knew they were in for a tough game with a visit to Anfield, but with Liverpool’s injury problems leaving them with a makeshift back four, confidence was fairly high that the Gunners could control the game, punish their defence and get the vital win.
Arsenal should sign Skrtel by SS
The media are reporting today that Liverpool’s Slovakian defender Martin Skrtel is unhappy at Liverpool and could seek a move away from the club. Arsenal are being linked with just about anybody this summer and are now being tipped as the favourites to sign Skrtel. Believe it or not, it may just be a rumour but I believe Arsenal should sign Skrtel if he really is available.
If Arsene Wenger was thinking of doing a bit of tinkering with the Arsenal team, that is obviously his perogative (not Bobby Brown’s). The one change that he should not even consider, however, is the inclusion of Olivier Giroud. With the Frenchman having scored two goals in each of his last two games, this probably will not seem like a radical idea, but that is not the only reason why Wenger must have him in the starting line up tomorrow.
