Arsenal Transfer Index Edition 6. 39 players joining the club; 13 players leaving.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By Sir Hardly Anyone

There are only 74 days left before the transfer window falls back into place with everything all over and done, and the glass shattered on the floor, and so far we only have 39 players listed who are going to join Arsenal this summer.  Plus 13 who are leaving, although to be fair we have to admit three of those  are Alexis.  Koscielny and Ozil have just joined the ranks of the departing.

What seems to be happening this year is that the same names are going around and around, whereas when we did this exercise last summer  the big rush was in the early days.

Are these journalists losing their knack when it comes to making things up?  I mean, if you can’t trust a journalist to do her or his job, who can you trust?

Don’t answer that.

    buy them all, sell them all. 😉

    I’ve seen Tammy Abraham play a few times this season and he’s very, very good. Don’t know if he’s good enough to step up, but who’d have thought Dele Alli could move up two divisions and make such an impact. And of course Chelsea wouldn’t be keen to sell to us. Doubt if he’ll be at City again next season.

    · A newly married couple were sitting in a restaurant when they noticed an old lady starring at them from another table.

    · They smiled back politely and the old lady made her way to their table. ‘I’m sorry to trouble you’ she began. ‘but you look so much like my daughter. She was killed last year and I do miss her so.’ I wonder if you would mind doing me a big favour?’

    · The couple nodded compassionately. ‘It would give me such a thrill if, just as I am leaving, you would say ‘goodbye mum’ and wave me off,’ the old lady said.

    · ‘Certainly’ the couple replied. How could they possibly refuse? A few minutes later, the old lady gathered her belongings and stood up to leave and the two diners cheerily said ‘good bye mum’ as ‘mum’ left the restaurant.

    · Feeling good about themselves, the couple asked for their bill. After checking it they called for the manager because it was far too much.

    · ‘That includes the charge for the lady’s meal,’ the manager explained. ‘She said her daughter would pay.’

    I think that I may discovered the mystery of the missing crowd last Tuesday .
    It was a dastardly and evil plot that had its origins in this joke..

    SOMEBODY DECIDED TO CAUSE TROUBLE!!!

    He went to a RESTAURANT and after seeing every table being occupied by couples, he took out his phone and made a very loud phone call, saying,
    “My friend, your wife is here with another man just come and see”

    Nine ladies DISAPPEARED!!

    The guys ? Probably went off to a pub.
