“Confusion reigns over future of £30m Arsenal target”
They are speaking of the game on Thursday and manage to say, “This was an embarrassment” twice in quick succession which left me wondering, what is the collective noun for a multiplicity of embarrassment? An embarrassmenti perhaps? “But take nothing away from the players, who were utter garbage,” the site continues.
What that writer recommends is this simple ploy. “Let’s start with Bellerin, who I’d take every penny they give me for him. The guy can’t defend, nor cross if it meant saving his life! He cares more about his hair and should definitely be sold to raise some funds for players who would actually have an idea what playing for the Arsenal means!”
Except this raises a problem. Apparently the players are an embarrassment. And useless. A useless embarrassment no less. So how many pennies will Arsenal get for him, and Koscielny and Mustafi who “should be packing their bags”. Oh yes and Monreal who was “just as bad”.
Now if we assume that by and large some managers know a bit about what they are doing, and taking a bigger leap and assuming this writer knows what he is writing about, then we are not going to get anything for these guys. So how will the club proceed? Because oh yes and Ramsey and Wilshere should be out too. And Ozil. And Danny Welbeck who served “no real purpose on the pitch and I’d sell him too”.
This leaves us without a team, and no money brought in from sales, because no one is as stupid as Wenger.
At least the writer admits it will take a while to sort things out. I wonder if the bloggettas will give the team “a while” next season. Indeed we could run a competition. How long before the first negative comment against the new maanger.
A week? A weekend? A day? An hour? 5 seconds? It might be less.
Anyway, moving on, the website Goal has one of the increasingly commonplace “Everything you need to know” articles. In fact it now seems to be de rigueur to have an “Everything” column, but then tell us nothing. And yet Goal has managed to go further under this headline than most.
Arsenal Team News: Injuries, suspensions and line-up vs Burnley
There is then the major subheading:
and then the announcement
“Arsenal have no suspended players for this game.”
I am so glad we have that cleared up.
Next up, the teams, and then we are all off to London for the last time this season. What a lovely day for it. Meanwhile you might try some or all of these…
