By Sir Hardly Anyone; Our Head of Blogetta and Spoof-man of the century is down the pub.
GOOD NEWS: Wenger Reveals Return Date For 6 of the Injured First Team Players
So shouts “GunnersCity” who helpfully print the list
- 21st November – Bellerin, Oxlade Chamberlain, Ramsey.
- 29th November – Walcott.
- 13th December – Wilshere.
But then we spot the next story in the same the very, very same, blogetta:
NOT AGAIN: Arsenal Star Ruled Out Of The Season
Shall we just pause for a second and read the previous headline before taking on this one…
It’s about Gnabry and says, “The player was accused of improper conduct last week, which led to his exclusion from the 18-man match day squad that faced Manchester United on Saturday.” The notion being that he will be trapped for a whole season not playing for WBA. It seems unlikely Arsenal would allow this of a prize asset, but that’s what you get when dealing with Pulis.
But moving on…
ACCEPTED– La Liga Club ACCEPTS Arsenal €45m Bid For Chelsea Target Ahead Of January Window
Now this looks more like it. It is from Footballcolumnist.com
Spanish news outlet Fichajes [oh hell], who reveal Arsenal are working on a £22m deal to lure the Spaniard to the Emirates in January, as Gunners boss Arsene Wenger wants to amplify his midfield options and has pinpointed Isco as the ideal fit. They report that the Gunners are preparing a January raid for the Spain international star and that Isco has been a long-term transfer target for Arsene Wenger’s side.
Now forgive me if I have got this wrong, but isn’t there a certain disconnect between ACCEPTED and ACCEPTS in the headline and “working on” in the story. Or am I just being and old man-about-town and a bit pedantic?
Still there is more

£40million Price SET, SENSATIONAL Star To Make Emirate DEAL!, First Winter signing Close
The Star reports suggest Benfica wonderkid Goncalo Guedes could make the switch to the Emirates as the gunner have regularly sent scouts to watch him in action. The 19-year-old has been touted as the new Cristiano Ronaldo and has a bright prospect ahead of him.
However, Benfica are not prepared to lose him and they have placed a asking price of £40million to put off offers for his signature.
“To make Emirate Deal”? Oh he’s going to sign for the airline. That was oohtobeagooner
Wenger is finally on verge to sign£35m superstar in January!
According to the reports from Spain Arsenal are very close to finalize the mega transfer and sign a long-time target Karim Benzema in January. French superstar was strongly linked with the Gunners over the summer, with numerous suggestions that bids had been lodged for his services.
Now I am sorry for the delay in putting out this blog but I fell off my chair at that one. And it goes on.
Reportedly, the 27-year-old striker is set to be moved on in the coming months following news he’s been charged in a blackmail plot against Lyon star Mathieu Valbuena. It’s also believed that the Royal club feel he’s damaged the club with a series of incidents, including this one involving compatriot, and he’s now likely to move to Premier League. Offsidefootball
OK so Arsenal will take a man currently in prison accused of blackmail? A bit like wanting a man who bit the opposition players I suppose. We didn’t then, we won’t now.
