So the first leg of the champions league play off is out of the way and i must say tonight i am
somewhat satisfied. I feel as if tonight we played a great game, broke down celtic but also
scrapped when needed. I was very imperesed once againÂ with our centre back pairing and was also
very pleased to see some eagerness and ambition going forward.
So i wake up early this Saturday morning, tune into sky sports news hoping to hear some good
news how Chelsea might of lost or all the Scums players broke their legs on the way back from
wembley when i hear that Sunderland of all teams have signed Lorik Cana.
Lets take a step back now, the same Lorik Cana that alot of Arsenal fans are crying out for and
someone who would suit us perfectly and would have been the perfect addition for us!
Atfernoon all, i am very happy toÂ bring you the news that a midfield star has been spotted at
the Arsenal training ground.
Blaise Matuidi 22, of St.Etienne who has been reccomended by Arsenal scout Gilles Grimandi. Has
been seen in London last night after immense speculation linking him with our club.
Right folks, so news coming out of the Viola today is that there is still a possibility we can
sign Melo and Fiorentina are interested in talking to Wenger who is also keen.
So lets take a breather for a second, we went from:
-Melo signing a new deal at Fiorentina
-Arsenal interested in Melo with Eboue going the other way
-Juventus also interested and Melo seems to want a move there
-A supposed medical at Juve
-To now Fiorentina and Wenger wanting to have a good chat.
News coming in this afternoon from Fiorentina is that Defensive midfielder Filipe Melo has been
involved in a swap deal with Arsenal's Emmanuel Eboue.
Melo, who has been linked with Arsenal since the beginning of the summer has recently signed a
one-year contract extension with the Italian side.
Breaking News:Â Arsenal have made the signing of Thomas Vermaelen official. He has signed on a
long term contract for an undisclosed fee believed to be around 10million pounds.Â
Arsene Wenger who is very pleased over the deal said: "Thomas is a great signing for Arsenal
Football Club, and we are all delighted that he is joining us.
I posted earlier that Sagna was apparently quoted as having an interest in Real Madrid and would
see what the future held. I am happy to inform you all that the official Arsenal site has released
a statement on behalf of Sagna and here it is:
"I have seen the quotes attributed to me in the French media today and I just want to put the
After yesterday's horrible weather i wouldn't doubt that the media sat indoors all day trying to
come up with new ways to piss off arsenal fans.
The latest playerÂ supposedly wanting to move out of Arsenal to join Real is Bacary Sagna. He has
been quoted as saying,Â
"I am surprised and I don't know anything, but I am not against the idea.
Afternoon all, so Fabianski has signed a new deal with us this week. This can be seen as a
postive that the club is going in the right direction and may encourage others such as R.Van Persie
to also sign on. My one and only concern though is, is Fabianski good enough to replace Almunia
when he is injured or unable to play or even is Almunia good enough to Be our number one?
Afternoon all, No Bentner has not been snapped up by the NBA (which is bitterly dissapointing),Â
and Adebayor has not signedÂ a multi million pound dealÂ with a club Â none of us have ever heard
of situated somewhereÂ distantÂ where he will never see the Champions League or much ever again
(which would be great)!
So apparently we are on the verge of signing Vermaelen, i want a general feel from all arsenal
fans over what you think about him and the situation where by if he comes in Le sulk himself gallas
is off? Here's were i stand: to be honest i've never been a great fan of gallas, not to say i
particulalryÂ hate him but nor do i particularly like him.
So the draw has just been done and Arsenal have been drawn with none other than Celtic f.c.
After much hype from Sky sports all week along with BBC sport; arsenal can be drawn with celtic,
Arsenal to be drawn with celtic, arsenal and celtic can possibly meetÂ i find it sooo predictable
and quite annoying that we have got celtic.
