Who Arsene Wenger Isn’t Buying
Vincent Kompany is not going to be an Arsenal player next season. Yes, Wenger loves him, he’s even been following him for 10 years, but Kompany will NOT be an Arsenal player next season. Rumor is that Arsenal may buy Spanish star Raul Albiol because he’s a bargain but Wenger is insistent that he doesn’t need any help in defense:
There is nobody I need for my team’s defensive department
I think most Arsenal supporters would disagree with that statement but it’s still June and let’s wait to see how he parses that statement out over the next few months. It could be “well we didn’t “need” anyone but we “wanted” XYZ” or something like that.
Wenger did reveal that Arsenal are very interested in “several” Belgian players. Marouane Fellaini perhaps? He’s tall, a good header of the ball, plays in defensive midfield, and considered a good “box to box” player. I don’t know, like I said, we’ll have to see how this all parses out over the next few weeks.
Last year’s surprise signing of the season, Bacary Sagna, is being featured over at the dot com this week and there’s even a competition to win a DVD of the season in review. Click on over there and win yourself a DVD!
Until Arsenal actually buy someone, all we have is…
Sign someone Arsene!
World Cup Qualification
While the USA cruised to an 8-0 destruction of Barbados this weekend, Brazil failed to dispatch 10 man Paraguay. My sources inform me that Sepp Blatter’s head exploded at this news because he couldn’t blame the “foreigners” (BRAZILIANS) for the Brazilian’s loss. I do think, however, he will try to find a way to show that his quota system would have prevented this defeat. Give him time.
