There have been rumbling all season about how unhappy Alex Song has been since his departure from Arsenal last summer. He was a certain starter for the Gunners last season, but now he is finding it hard to get near the first team now he is at Barcelona and has only played 15 games for the Spanish giants.
Arsenal seemed to start well against newly-promoted Southampton yesterday but the longer the game went on the Saints looked more and more superior. Watching Arsene Wenger on the touchline you could see the dismay at his teams performance and often he just looked dejected.
There have been many rumours lately that the ex-Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas was having trouble fitting into Tito Vilanova’s plans since he took over from Pep Guardiola at Barcelona, but since they first appeared in Marca I was a little dubious (to say the least) as to whether it was true.
There is an excellent Arsenal transfer rumour out this morning saying that the brilliant Bayern Munich and Holland hitman Arjen Robben is fully intending to leave the Bundesliga this summer, and would love to return to London where he had three excellent season’s with Chelsea.
The Sevilla coach Antonio Alvarez was originally very annoyed that he couldn’t play the French international defender Sebastien Squillaci in Wednesdays Champions League qualifier against Braga. He has decided though to just carry on as if he wasn’t there and won’t pick him for tonights game against Barcelona either.
