‘I’ve Got One Big Contract Left In Me And I Know My Worth’ – Danny Rose Drops Blunt Bombshell On Eve Of New Season, Implores Tottenham To Stop Signing ‘Players He Has To Google’

Who Ate All the Pies at related • 0 views

Just a few days before the start of the season, Danny Rose has given an incredibly blunt interview in which he, a) criticises Tottenham's transfer activity (or lack thereof) this summer and, b) openly admits he's keen to move back to a more northerly club sooner rather than later.

Rose, who has spent the last six months out nursing a knee injury, refused to mince words while speaking to The Sun, getting pretty much all of his major gripes off his chest in one fell swoop.

Tempus Fugit. Seems like yesterday ... actually it doesn't, much talk and some action has taken place since season's end, some good, some not so good, some still to happen.Has anyone left from the 1st team squad? Will they? Loans must be the order of the day as we try to clear the decks. We need more bodies etc etc

But today we have the little matter of a Wembley appearance, and we are good at Wembley, aren't we?

Wenger loves a surprise signing

East Lower at related • 0 views

Wenger has always been something of an expert at the surprise signing. You could never bet against him pulling a Frenchman with something to prove out of a hat. The ultimate ‘Abracadabra' was Sol Campbell, who emerged like a mirage, grinning into the Colney sunshine. On that occasion Wenger allowed himself a wry smile in public, while behind the safety of his office door he was far more effusive, flicking his fingers and saying the word ‘sick'.

I've been away, loafing in Ionian sunshine, studying things from afar, so much as 'things' can reasonably be called 'things'.

So for real action, the Fenerbahce game was my season opener, and it was as good a spectacle as any game in which you've got a three goal lead can be. Ramsey excellent, Cazorla peerless.

Uh-Oh – Wenger doesn’t expect any Arsenal signings this week

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views

Arsene Wenger has constantly declared that Arsenal are in the market for players, however week after week goes by and still we see no additions. Well now just moments after once again stating that Arsenal are in the transfer market, actively working to finally sign some players, he then comes out with yet another blow to the Arsenal fans ears.

Arsenal 1-3 Aston Villa

As Villa's third goal went it yesterday, consigning us to our first opening-day defeat for 20 years, I felt a twinge of pity. A clash of calendars had rendered me elsewhere so I was watching it unfold on the Twitters (never good for one's equilibrium), and I suddenly felt a pang of sadness for the poor sap who had hoovered up my seat on the ticket exchange.

Cazorlanomics

Last summer:

30th April Podolski signing announced
26th June Giroud signing announced
7th August Cazorla signing announced

Looking back at our main activity last summer, Podolski's deal was sorted almost ludicrously early (very un-Arsenal-like), Giroud's in good time and Cazorla's as the season was about to begin.

A couple of tweets yesterday, from Rory Smith of The Times, which I found interesting.

Two thoughts before bed. It's no coincidence Liverpool want £40m for Suarez and Real now want the same for Higuain. A game is afoot.

Bielik is the new Whyte

East Lower at related • 0 views

There ought to be a manual for advising people how best to avoid shoe-horning woeful puns into the titles of blog posts, you know. I merely say that.

Because we all know that Krystian Bielik is not the new Chris Whyte, even if both could play centre-half. But in the absence of a legendary Arsenal midfielder called, say, Patrick Purple or Liam Khaki, I went for Chris Whyte, and that's all the explanation I am prepared to give.

I'm sure you'll all agree that no time is a bad time to shoehorn in an inappropriate Musical Youth headline.

Yes yes, I know he plays on the right-hand side. And that ideally we don't want ‘passed Debuchy on the left-hand side' to be the opponents' tactical Plan A. And anyway, why would Debuchy be passing on the left-hand side?

Arsenal 4-0 Coventry City

Doffed chapeaus all round to Giroud, for an imposing performance in which he scored a deft little number ("good touch for a big man"), to Mertesacker for his robotic leg, to all-action Flamini for coming on, rustier than a shipwreck, and getting stuck in from the off.

Is this Liverpool’s most crucial transfer window?

Those who argued Liverpool had a squad to fight for a top four finish this season(Including myself) since they were not participating in Europe league fixtures might now have second thoughts.

Yes we still sit fourth in the table but the away trip to Manchester city and Stamford Bridge showed how weak Liverpool are in terms of squad depth and quality to fight for the Title

"The squad we have at the moment is still relatively small; we have got a few players out.

Color me both uninspired and unsurprised by the Ruiz acquisition.

I grew up in the same neck of the woods as Ben Olsen, and though I'm a touch older than he is, I know (and am related to) folks who have shared a field with him. They're all pretty consistent in both (a) detesting Ben as an opponent and (b) being ready with an anecdote about how he bent or plain broke the rules in pursuit of winning, even when the game was meaningless.

Larissa 0-1 AEK

AEK Archives at related • 0 views

Late getting this post up, but its a game worth mentioning. Going by reports I read online, it was yet another somewhat dissapointing performance from our players, though at least we managed to come away with a win from one of our tougher matches of the playoffs. Our only goal of the match was scored by Platellas in the 42nd minute, and its one worth watching:

I'm curious, would anyone know why Larissa is now playing in Aklazar and not their new stadium?
