Schwarzer Update & Gooner Wonderland
August 22, 2010
The player has been reported, by various sources including a few emails I have recieved from readers, to have been at London Colney last week.
The deal is inevitable, as many gooners have already worked out.
The stumbling block is as reported by the wider press, the transfer valuation of the keeper, a week remains to meet in the middle before the window closes.
Fulham are not stupid, to get anything close to £3M for a player nearing 40 is stupendous money for a club of their size, they are resigned to losing him, and know he won’t be their player much longer.
It’s a game of cat and mouse, but just relax gooners, let Gazidis do his job!
On to the game yesterday, wow, what a day at the Emms, possibily the best afternoon I have ever spent there.
Not because we were simply awesome, but because the atmosphere and general good feeling around the place was so vivid and real.
The Emirates really is home now, this will be the 5th Season we start life at The Home of Football, and the long awaited return of the correct stand names is the best bit of Arsenalisation that could have possibily be put in place.
What a feeling being able to say “I was in the North Bank” again.
Not going to write much about the game, it’s all already been spoken and written… the real tests will come against the big boys.
Easily the most one-sided game of live football I have seen in my entire life. 100% no doubt about that.
Chamakh is a joy to behold.. he works like crazy, is far too unselfish, totally plays for his fellow players and has that special knack of being in the right place at the right time.. the best skill a striker can have.
He will score at least 20 goals for us in all comps this season.
Jack is doing exactly what Cesc was doing at the same age.. can I award a greater compliment?
Song and TV5 were solid, Sagna wonderful, Clichy good.
Diaby hit and miss, sloppy and slow one minute… a monster that rivals paddy the next. A real enigma.
Arshavin had a very good game, but tired, taken off at the right time… get his fitness right and he can be lethal.
Theo? The best game of football he has played, for club or country, shades of a young thierry, bursting away from defenders, dropping in with pace from the flanks, causing and then leaving chaos in his wake.
He needs to keep this confidence up, if he does, he will be Arsenal Player of the Season and the first name on Capello’s teamsheet for the rest of his reign of terror.
All in all a great day, a fitting game for the return of the Clock.
Blackburn up next weekend, they should take a good pasting aswell.
EDIT: and yes people, I did notice those reports about the England footballer with one child in a long term relationship who has been granted an extension to his superinjunction to keep a nasty story out of the papers… for now!
