By Sir Hardly Anyone
It is really important to stay in touch with the bloggettas these days so that we know exactly where we are. Football London for example today tells us that
The end of August is edging ever closer –
You can just imagine the panic in and around the training grounds of PL clubs (as they love to say in the Daily Express). Not to mention among calendar makers. And there is more because this dramatic outspin of the eighth month of the year means…
there is even less time for managers to get their big-name deals over the line before the transfer window slams shut.
Now that is a biggie. Time is only moving in one direction!!! Who ever would have thought it!!!
So what have we got. Well, its big news from Sportskeeda…
1: Alexis is going Mad
Real Madrid transfer round-up: Alexis-Benzema swap deal in place. According to Sport 360 the move is aided by the fact that Manchester City have got bored with the story and are buying Eden Hazard instead, and who cares about FFP anyway, because they are about to be banned from all transfers for a year by CAS. (Actually Sport 360 didn’t put in the last bit because news about Man City’s dodgy doings is banned from all newspapers and bloggettas by mutual agreement).
2: But Chelsea are buying everyone

According to the same source Chelsea have decided that one defeat tells them everything they need to know about their squad and in one fell swoop they are buying…
Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Clubcall (a bloggetta) has the headline “rivals keen on star” and I got rather fascinated by this one being a keen amateur astronomer, and thus wondering if is was Sirius, Rigel, Deneb or the infamous Beetlejuice. But no, it was the Ox. Buying heavenly bodies would be amusing though. More on this anon.
3: And Jack has found a new home
Yes this is according to the Star – the sort of intellectual version of Sportskeeda, which says he is going to Aston Villa and the deal is as good as done.
Although elsewhere this morning there are reports on him going to Juventus, Newcastle, West Ham, Swansea and Sampdoria. So that is about one limb each. Poor Jack – more surgery.
4: Mahrez is our backup for Alexis
The Mahrez story has been on – off – off -off – off – on – off … well you get the idea, for months now, but apparently Just Arsenal News know exactly what is going on because they tell us with a certainty only seen in blogetta pages that he will move to Arsenal the moment Alexis goes.
5: Credibility out of the window
I am not sure if Red London is now owned by Sky or whether they have lost all sense of reality, as they are running the headline that “Sky Sports journalist reveals transfer moves Wenger is now working on”. Now given Sky Sports recent record in nonsense that seems unlikely but still Dharmesh Sheth is given a platform to tell us all. And he says…
“The priority at the Emirates is to trim the squad before making any more signings. Arsenal are listening to offers for Carl Jenkinson and Mathieu Debuchy. Talks are continuing with Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain over their futures. Both have a year left on their Arsenal contracts.”
