I wake up this morning to find out that Arsene says that there is no movement in or out before the transfer window shuts. I am sitting here wondering if I am in the middle of some sick little nightmare. Its a little bit scary to think that we will not be bringing in anyone else.
I think its pretty clear that we are short in squad depth but more importantly we are lacking a wide player. Everyone knows this, Arsene stated this and still we sit here patiently.. well impatiently now waiting for a winger to hold up the shirt with Wenger standing next to him.
I really hope that Arsene is just saying this to bring the prices down.. or maybe i'm just clutching at straws here.
Arsene explained the reason for letting Djourou go on loan. Half of it made wonderful sense the other side of it was bloody frightening. Arsene said:
"I knew when Djourou left that Alex Song can play in there and Gilberto has played in there already," said Wenger. "I wanted him to be experienced. I know Kolo will go in January [to the African Nations Cup] and I want Johan to play."
Song?? Are you telling me that Arsene would feel comfortable in playing Song against Premiership sides? He looked out of his depth there against bloody Barnet! I'm sorry, but he is not Arsenal class. Do you know what his two contributions to the season is so far? come on, tell me? I'll tell you.
He has come on off the bench and kicked the ball out of play with both touches while he tried to pass the ball back to our own player both from throw ons I think.
I just have to pray that Gallas and co can stay fit.
Arsene also revealed that he turned down the chance to take Adriano on loan for the season in exchange for another Arsenal unknown Arsenal player probably Rosicky I think Arsene made the right decision. Yes, Adriano has a good left foot and is talented but he is lazy and doesn't run. We don't need another Baptista.
I'm looking forward to the Champions League match tonight. Hopefully we can rest Cesc and Van Persie and still get a positive result. The referee better keep his eye on Repka.
There are rumours of Jens being unsettled after his 'injury' and that he maybe seeking a move away from Arsenal. If he can get back to form of early last season then he should be number 1 but he is looking kinda shaky at the moment.
Prediction: Arsenal 1 Sparta Prague 1 - Eduardo to get off the mark.
