Transfer deadline mind games

Arsenal Insider at related • 0 views

Check out any newspaper, or football website, and it's the time of year when the transfer rumours reach fever pitch. I'm sure I read somewhere that Charlie George was being considered by a number of Championship clubs.

Looking at Arsenal, there are still many persistent rumours, mostly involving Nuri Sahin and Yann M'Vila, although there are others.

Morning all,

it's been a bit fraught over the last couple of days, so let's start with some of the positive stuff going around this morning. Like Everton. And Robin van Quisling's Manchester United debut. What's that little boy inside screaming about this morning, Robin? Does he understand the concept of schadenfreude, because we all do.

Time for Kroenke to make things better

Good morning to you, a quick Saturday round-up after what has been a turbulent week.

It'd be nice if we could get away from the RVP/Usmanov stuff but that's rather fanciful, to be honest. There have been some whispers that Robin is somewhat taken aback by the reaction to the statement, as if there was no expectation of a backlash, but I'm not sure how much I believe that.

As another season with the familiar hollow ring of no silverware lags to a close at Arsenal, the question of what's to be done after Arsene Wenger eventually retires needs to be asked; driven largely by unrealistic whispers of Arsenal's ...

Milan finish tea, roll up newspaper, beat Arsenal 4-0

All Four One, and One Four All! at related • 0 views

As far as continuation of difficult weeks go, this was very difficult. Milan were good, we were bad; but Milan weren't as good as we were bad. Arsenal would have lost to most teams playing like they did last night- lethargic, over-cautious and poor in their passing, diligently unwilling in their shooting, casual in pressing the opposition and suicidal in defense.

Cazorla makes the Germany trip while Usmanov blunders

So the team traveled to Germany yesterday for a training camp, which will culminate in a game against FC Koln on Sunday, and there were, reportedly, some interesting voyagers.

Both the BBC and the Mirror report that Santi Cazorla has made the trip which tells you the deal is done and dusted, even if it hasn't been announced yet.

And then there was war …

If you thought that yesterday the dust might settle a bit in the wake of Robin van Persie's statement you couldn't have been more wrong.

There were whispers of a forthcoming statement from Red and White (Alisher Usmanov and that other bloke nobody really cares about) and when it emerged it was really quite extraordinary.

Silly old Joey Barton is currently staring down the barrel of a twelve, count 'em, twelve! -game ban for general dickery on the final game of last season and, with QPR's patience reserves dwindling, it looks like English football's preeminent copy-and-paste philosopher is going to be keeping the chub at bay by training with League Two side Fleetwood Town.

A plum FA Cup tie away at Tottenham Hotspur, an unbeaten run away from home

 for Cheltenham Town?

From the dark months of the Martin Allen era which saw the manager
 leave under a cloud after unproven accusations of racism levelled at him by a nightclub bouncer and a precarious escape from the drop zone
the Robins (or the Rubies are they are known this season due to their special 125th anniversary kit) have had a remarkable change in fortunes both on and off the pitch.

After whispers began circulating yesterday, Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has confirmed that Daniel Sturridge is suffering with viral meningitis but is on the road to recovery.

It is being reported that Sturridge began to show symptoms last week, and was immediately assessed by both Chelsea and the FA's medical teams before the illness was fully diagnosed.

It is remarkably quiet considering we're heading into the final two games of this league season. Maybe it's not that remarkable though, maybe there's just a sense that this campaign is one most people would pretty much like to see the back of ... once we secure third place.

We'll watch tonight's games with some interest.

Adios tiny amigo?
What began as whispers a couple of weeks back was last night retweeted by the player in question, then backed by numerous sources - TFC's Joao Plata may be heading back to his parent club, Ecuador's LDU Quito. Of course in true Toronto FC fashion this is about the clearest point of the transaction so far.

Last Friday we were too busy fawning all over the fiercely fashionable Alonsos to realise that this hot to trot Spanish couple was also in GQ Man of the Year attendance. Less than a week later they've given us another shot at showing them off, which we're very appreciative of.

Certainly Real Madrid's Arbeloa and his equally beautiful wife, Carlota, looked stellar as usual at the Chocron New Catalague event this past Wednesday.

Michael Bradley started hearing whispers about clubs being interested in acquiring him from Chievo Verona while with the U.S. men's national team earlier this summer. There were plenty of options from both inside of Italy and out, but as soon as he learned Italian heavyweights AS Roma were serious about signing him, he needed to hear nothing more.

Although Manchester United tragically blew an eight point lead in the title race and bowed out of the 2011/2012 season as runners up, the Red Devils gained a lot from this drama filled year. If history repeats itself as it normally does, United will come back stronger and deadlier next season with a mean vengeance, just like they did after losing the title to Blackburn on the last day of the 94/95 season.

Yesterday, 27-year old Bari centre-half Andrea Masiello confessed to receiving upwards of €50,000 (£41, 600) for scoring an own-goal and ensuring that his side lost against local rivals Lecce in the Serie A last season.

Masiello has been detained in Bari prison after his arrest, while eight other Bari players are now under investigation for similar offences.

Ah, it's been nice to have a weekend without Forest to spoil things, hasn't it? Well, if you brush aside the whispers of who's leaving and when. So far the only confirmed news on that score are Leicester and their bids for Wes Morgan but, of course it would certainly be the Forest way to pave the way for departures as the transfer window draws to a close and we're not able to replace any outgoing players [.
