Unlike most members of the artisocracy I have never taken strong drugs except on doctor’s orders, so I don’t know if it is true that for the junkie each high fails to deliver what is actually wanted, but the belief remains that the next high will be the perfect high.
So I guess it is true for those fixed on the spoof sites – those little sites that promise the latest on the transfer front, but then deliver nothing. You know its a fix but then there’s one more headline and maybe this one is the true one.
Arsenal Finally Have Bid Accepted & Personal Terms Agreed For Striker Transfer
That must be it, surely, with that headline, and the sub heading that says
Arsenal are reportedly set to complete the transfer of 23-year-old star striker away from the Emirates Stadium this summer.
But oh what is this? Away? Joel Campbell looks to be on his way out of Arsenal, with the Gunners said to have agreed a deal to complete his transfer away from north London.
This report is according to popular Turkish media outlet Turkish-football, who claims the Costa Rican striker is close to sealing a move to Besiktas after agreeing terms with the Turkish side.
Now I have looked at the site Turkish-football and it looks to me as much like a spoof site as the ones that bedeck our own news aggregation sites. Is it true? If so, by the time we get there we’ll have forgotten all about it. Except that now it is on Untold, maybe I’ll come back and look.
Just to be annoying. But still, hold your horses squire, look at this…
Welcome to the Emirates as top-class striker OFFICIALLY signs with Arsenal
Arsenal have completed the signing of Barcelona star Marta, according to the Sky Sports website.
The 23-year-old joins having won four consecutive league titles with Barcelona in Spain.
The midfielder could make her debut this Sunday against Liverpool when the Women’s Super,League restarts after the break for the World Cup.
The next in line to depart is reportedly 22-year-old striker Joel Campbell…
Oh bugger. But still, just one fix, just one story that’s real, or almost half real…
However, despite Cech’s obvious qualities, Wenger will be fully aware his troops need more strengthening in various other areas of the pitch.
Why is Carl Jenkinson being offered a new deal by Arsenal?
Well, actually because we need to cover ourselves against another round of unpunished criminal attacks on our players. I would have thought that is obvious.
But wait. Are you sure you know what to think. After all none of the blogs has told you of late.
After spending well in the last couple of windows on the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal fans are excited about the future and there could be some imminent signings very soon.
West Ham are also close to agreeing another season-long loan for Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson, after the right-back impressed while at Upton Park last term.
The Metro is a turgid load of old cobblers, but at least they keep their headline writers under control
Arsenal and Liverpool transfer target Pedro Rodriguez admits he could leave Barcelona in the summer
ESPN FC put it this way
The 27-year-old Spain international only signed a new deal last month at the club, but already it seems as though he is set to end his 10-year spell with the Catalan giants. Arsenal have been heavily linked with the fleet-footed forward and Pedro admits his situation at the moment is “delicate”. Pedro created 25 chances in La Liga last season.
What is the meaning of “heavily linked”. Is that a chain with lots of big clunky bits within it? Doesn’t sound that clever to me.
Time to move on…
Tutto Mercato Web sayeth…
Athletic Bilbao are still showing an interest in Arsenal left-back Nacho Monreal, after the 29-year-old’s impressive displays last season. Monreal managed to dislodge injury-prone Kieran Gibbs from the left-back slot and was part of the club’s FA Cup success, as well as helping them finish third. The Spaniard was linked with Bilbao earlier this summer and whilst the interest that time cooled off, it has emerged again with Ernesto Valverde a big fan of the full-back. Monreal completed 85 interceptions in the league last season.
Come on come on I need my fix…
