“In Two Days We Will Have Gallas, Mascherano, Tevez, Cole & Reyes…”

Two days to go before the dreaded transfer window closes and so far we have only signed Rosicky all summer  Then to add to the frustration, there are nonsensical blog posts flying around falsely reporting that we are about to sign every player under the sun. I saw a headline a few days back saying:

“In two days we will have Gallas, Mascherano, Tevez, Cole & Reyes”

The internet is a crazy place.

So I’m not going lie.

The truth of the matter is that we all hope Wenger has something up his sleeve. That he whips out a world class player ready for us all to love. Someone proven but also someone who has fantastic potential to flourish into an even better player – but I’m finding it increasingly difficult to accept that anything is going to happen at all. Another youngster was here for a two day trial from Scotland and that is perhaps the only deal that could go through for about £500,000. Some may not want a signing but my own personal opinion is that our squad is thin at the moment and we need experience, especially ta the back and in defensive areas like Gilberto’s role.

Cole has been told to concentrate on Arsenal and if in two days time he is still here, then I will write a special piece just for him because we love him so much and I just can’t wait for him to be here all season *blank face*

The truth is that out of those players mentioned – the one that would really be a good signing would be Mascheran. Just for the simple fact that our defensive midfield options are literally limited to Gilberto, Flamini and Diaby. Let’s break that down.

Gilberto is a sound player who does a great job for the team…but on his own he isn’t enough. With Vieira he brought the best out of him and vice-versa. Flamini did wonderfully last season at left back, but could that be because we didn’t expect him to? Our expectations were low so when he performed to a decent standard we all got extraordinarily excited. I haven’t seen Flamini show that same level of performance as a defensive midfielder…yet.

The only thing I could see when you watch him over 90 minutes is that he seems to never get tired – which is fantastic. But not enough on its own. Throw in one of those long distance runners from the Olympics into an Arsenal midfield and that wouldn’t be enough either. However, I have great hope that slowly he can develop into a decent squad player, but I don’t think he will ever reach the heights of a Fabregas or to a certain extent to a level I believe Diaby could potentially reach.

Diaby is unfortunate to have injured himself so many times. He will be out for most of the season but you can see from his stature, his build and athleticism that he could add some steal into midfield. Alex Song is another but he has yet to impress in midfield. I think I speak for most Arsenal supporters on that note, but the apparent fee of £2.5 million for him seems to show us that Wenger has great faith in him. Lets hope what he sees in training is more accurate than what we have seen on the pitch.

So Mascharano would be an amazing acquisition. Is it likely? Perhaps not. But his agent has been in London for the past few days and that might suggest a move to England is eminent.

Let’s see what Wenger has in his pipeline.

    I have to say that reading this blog has cheered me up no end. I am sitting in munich – a die hard spurs fan laughing out loud to the state of affairs regarding how many players you haven’t signed. What with Berbatov, Assou Ekotto, Zakoro, Malbranque, Mido, Chimbonda all new and on our books you must agree that the future isn’t looking to fruitful for you boys. Did I mention the fact that to hear you lot biccering amongst yourselves is so satisfying I can’t even be bothered to insult you. We are singing for Tottenham……COYS and by the way I like dthe comment about being shat out of a Kosher Dog. Its all better than supporting the black man’s team.. If all your supporterss sold their gold teeth then maybe you could afford a player or two — or if you were jewish and clever like us then you’d have money to spend wouldn’t you??? Reád it and weep Gooners — They don’t call you the scum for nothing. Oh and about the insults – I changed my mind!!!!! Mickey Yiddey – oivey my fellow football fans

    To 3:43PM…

    You are having a laugh. Everyone spells doom and gloom for the Gunners but we’ll show you at the end of the season (just like every other season), who’s tops.

    And to the people who are fighting in here, get over yourselves and get a life? To the non-Gooners, how about take your muppetesque thoughts elsewhere? Like for heaven’s sake hey…

    well said. they are all playing to ctach us up on the pitch and off the pitch.
    most Arsenal fans trust Wenger and what he is doing.
    only PLASTIC GLORY HUNTERS and jonny cum latelies who demand instant success.

    Well said

    Arsene has easily £70million that he has spent over the last ten years. Arsenal made more money than any other club in the premiership last season about £50million plus, add to the money we got from our sponsors (emirate) and the money we will get from the redevelopment of Highbury. Then you know that Arsenal have a lot of money. This money does not include that we already have from previous season and other sponsors…

    The fact or the truth is that Arsene does not want to spend money. Think about it! If Arsene decides to spend £30million on one player or two, what difference would that make to the amount they will paying the bank they borrowed money from. I don’t think Arsene is spending because he doesn’t want to waste money but because he does not want to lose great potential players like he did with Ronaldihno (who is in trouble with Barcelona now)

    It will be well…

    You notice now how people do not say Fab is too light weight anymore, when Arsenal starts winning we will be kicking ourselves just how we did last season with Vieira situation.

  • sexymightious

    I just don’t understand people talking as if they in the gunners bank account, we have enough money to spend, whether players leave or not, if we want to buy we will. And i think Reyes will go, we need Macherano, for the rest, they can all fuck off, arsenal will win the league, better to start poor and finish on high, the end is the most important.

    I’M REALLY DISSAPOINTED IN SOME OF THE REACTIONS OF SO CALLED “GOONERS”, IN THE LAST 10-15 YRS WE’VE GGONE FROM HAVING THE LIKES OF CHRIS KIYWOMA, PAUL DICKOV, AND SCOTT MARSHALL,TO HENRY, DB10, PV4, PIRES, FREDDIE,KOLO TOURE, ASHLEY OR CASHLEY IF U PREFER. DONT GET ME WRONG I’M NOT IMPRESSED WITH WHAT I’VE SEEN SO FAR, BUT IF WHEN I BOUGHT MY SEASON TICKET (THE SEASON KIYWOMA SIGNED) YOU TOLD ME THAT WE WOULD HAVE WON THE LEAGUE AT OLD TRAFFORD AND WHITE HART LANE AND GONE TO A EUROPEAN CUP FINAL ON MERIT (NOTHING LUCKY ABOUT THAT CUP RUN)I WOULD HAVE BITTEN UR HANDS OFF. I THINK SO CALLED FANS NEED TO CALM THE F*&K DOWN AND GET BEHIND THE TEAM. HOW BAD CAN WE BE WHEN WE STILL MAKE THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE DISPITE STRUGGLING FOR CONSISTENCY. REMEMBER CLASS IS PERMANENT FORM IS TEMPORARY, WE HAVE CLASS ALWAYS HAEV, SPURS HAVE A BIT OF FORM SO GOOD LUCK TO THEM AND CHELSEA WHILE MONEY CAN BUY THE WORLD SURELY 2 TITLES IN OVER 100 YRS OF HISTORY DOES NOT MAKE THEM A BIG CLUB. SORRY GUYS BUT ITS TRUE

    The whole Argie thing is just a smokescreen. Ronaldinhio will be unveiled as Arsenal player before game on Saturday. You heard it here first…

    Looks like the most realistic transfer could be a Reyes/Baptista swap deal.

    Losing a player who does not want to play for us and gaining one who reluctantly will, might be the lesser of two evils.

    One thing is for sure, will now for certain by this time tomorrow!

  • Yung Flyerz

    All these comments have made my day. I’ve never laughed so much. PURE racism (btw the Jewish ones were justified) All I would say is, relax, we will be challenging at one point of the season, with or without the aforementioned parties.

    reo-coker at arsenal for medical

  • Anonymous

    I wonder how that bellend who posted the first comment feels now, saying that the two Argies were at London Colney having a medical.

    But…West Ham? Fuck me, have a word.

  • Anonymous

    west ham have links with MSI who tried to buy them last year. MSI is a holding company that is run by A FORMER BUSINESS ASSOCIATE OF ABRAMOWICH.
    MSI own percentages of a lot of players in SA LIKE TEVEZ AND MACHERENO. WE TRIED TO SIGN FERNANDO GAGO BUT WERE TOLD NO CHANCE AS MSI OWN PART OF HIS CONTRACT.
    MSI are funded by the dirty russian money launderer. arnesen has the best conatct book in SA. the cahvs will get all top SA talent or stop them coming to any other top PL team such as manshytes pool and us.

    Oh I do love to see the Gooners arguing he he
    So I see from your comments that obviously West Ham’s medicals must be done at London Colney now as the players in question have both signed for the Happy Hammers perhaps like your ground you have moved again !!! In respect of Cole he is heading to your rivals although the way your season has started your more likely to be in competion with Spurs and the other also rans at the foot of the table.
    New stadium will grace any football league side should be easy to get tickets there soon as no one will want to see the dross you pedal
    Come on Chelsea another prem championship please
    PS You can have Gallas as long as you pay the full price !!!
