21 separate reports tip Mykhaylo Mudryk to be coming to Arsenal in January



Data gathered by Tony Attwood

The myth perpetrated by the media is that Arsenal have no contingency plan for injuries and thus when an event comes along such as Gabriel Jesus’ current situation, they are left running around like headless chickens searching for a replacement.

The reality is however that it is the journalists who are headlessly looking for a fantasy tale, which is why at least 97% of their transfer rumours each window turn out to be incorrect.   So on the basis that at most three per cent of these tales are true, Arsenal will be buying one or at most two players.

Here are the numbers

The number of players it is suggested are coming to Arsenal: 48 so far and the window doesn’t creak open for another 19 days.

The number of new players since last time we published: 4 which means they are running out of inventive ideas.

The players with the most notices about their impending move…

  • Youri Tielemans: 9
  • Danilo: 10
  • Cody Gakpo: 12
  • Memphis Depay: 15
  • Mykhaylo Mudryk: 21

The players getting the most repeat articles in the same publication.

  • Memphis Depay with six articles in which the publication repeats its earlier assertion that he is coming to Arsenal
  • Mykhaylo Mudryk also with six articles in which a publication repeats its earlier assertion that he is coming to Arsenal.

And finally the 48 players tipped to be signing for Arsenal this January.

In this table “No” is the number of separate reports of the player coming to Arsenal that we have seen.   “Rpt” is the number of occasions we have spotted an outlet running the same story about the same player twice.

And here is the table.

  1. Mikel Arteta can’t be that worried because he hasn’t recalled Folarin Balogun. Too many have immediately ignored Eddie Nketiah ; perhaps those same people need to start trusting in Mikel’s judgement on the basis that retaining Granit Xhaka and Mo Elneny has proved to be shrewd management. On another slightly different ironic note one or two former critics of Mikel are now calling him a top , top coach . 6 months ago these same ne’erdowells were telling us that S***s held all the cards to get them Champions League football because of Conte and Arsenal were doomed to fail because of our inexperienced manager. Not many acknowledge the simple truth that everyone has to start somewhere.
