There is nothing going on today.
Maybe it’s one of those “quiet before the storm” things.
I could write the whole blog in single sentence paragraphs.
Arsenal are being linked to one and only one player, Andrei Arshavin, and his agent is telling anyone who will listen that Zenit are trying to artificially inflate the price of the player.
DUH — Here’s a news flash, Secret Agent Man: that’s what clubs do.
Anyway, the deal is either on for £8m or off for £20m, depending on who you read today. Like I said yesterday, the desperation here is palpable. I don’t know why Arshavin is so deseperate to leave Zenit but offering salary cuts and the way his agent talks makes me even more wary than just, you know, having to deal with a bunch of racists, oligarchs, and gas monopolies.
Why is Arsenal involved in this deal? The whole thing stinks.
The other story is that Arsenal have signed… another teenager to professional terms.
Ok, one last thing, you have to see this video of Fat Ronaldo working out.
Jesus, what happened? Did he start smoking 2 packs a day and eating small children for lunch? I think that’s what the “reporter” is saying anyway, some days I wish I spoke Portuguese.
I will break into your day if there is breaking news of an imminent signing. If not, enjoy the day “off.”
