I woke up this morning and the DVD player was stuck in a Road Warrior loop, that can’t be good. That means that I spent the latter part of the evening eating cheeseburgers and watching George Miller’s dystopian vision of, well, basically what’s happening to the world right now — people fighting over oil and bald guys in the desert yelling “just give us your gasoline and walk away!”
So, what happened in Arsenal’s world?
Before all the drinking last night, I read this article about Fergie where he basically said, “Adebayor’s people, before the deal was done with City, basically called United and Chelsea and begged us to take him.”
This is great because it confirms the fact that Adebayor is A) unwanted by any top club and B) doesn’t actually want to be at City and C) a money grubbing mercenary.
It also means that unlike even Hleb, who I have pretty much ripped endlessly since he left, Adebayor is confirmed as the 2nd worst person to ever leave Arsenal. Sorry Ashley, he’s going to have to do a few more things before he reaches your rarefied air.
Are there any Ade defenders left?
A friend of a friend of Alisher Usmanov’s business partner’s cousin’s roomate’s sister, said that the Adebayor deal means Arsenal are not going to finish in the top 4.
I guess it’s serious.
Really though, can you take anyone seriously who is quoted as saying that Adebayor averaged 20 goals a season?
And finally, with John Terry now publicly kissing the Chelsea badge and proclaiming that he’s a Chelsea boy through and through, expect the “ZOMGBBQ TOURE 2 CITEH 4 £15m!!!1!!one!!!11!” stories to ‘hot up’ as the Brits say.
I like Kolo but £15m is a good price and Arsene would certainly have to think about letting him go at that price. That said, if he leaves and Eboue leaves and Senderos leaves, then our defense would need some serious shoring up. Hell, I’d love to see Arsene bring in another defender irregardless what happens with Kolo!
It’s a long season and as much as I love Djourou and Gallas, they would be our only two EPL experienced center-halfs.
Maybe it’s the hangover but I’m getting this queasy feeling that Wenger’s going to sell Toure, Sendy, and Eboue, bank the money (another £25m) and then talk about how this team can do it. YOU CAN DO IT!
Even worse than that feeling is the prospect of enduring another 20 days of “ZOMG–ROFLCOPTERS ARSENE LOST TEH PLOT!!”
I need some water and a bit of exercise.
