Arsenal News 12 July 2012

July 12, 2012

Morning Gooners…

Arsenal have been back in training for two days… Some noticeable absentees such as Wilshere, the players that were on duty in the Euro’s. Not sure Alex Song was at training and RVP is on holiday in Spain. Nice to see Stevie Bould in the pictures starting his No.2 job and hopefully putting what I think are very good defenders at AFC into some shape that they play more as a unit and cut down on those 49 goals conceded last season.

Oi you! Yes you!!! You horrible little lot… You’re gonna defend a lot better this year…

Djourou looks to be sporting a dodgy barnet, Abou Diaby is back and should be careful lifting weights’ as we don’t want him to put his back out, do we?. Pardon me also for thinking that in those pictures on, here and here Carl Jenkinson does not look like a footballer. Love the pictures of Santos, always smiling. One of my favourite players at the club.

Still no news on RVP as to will he go, or will he stay? RVP is currently sunning it in Spain… Some suggestion on SSN that he might do a Coalition (that’s a u-turn if you were unsure), though more likely to do with they have sod all to fill a 24/7 news channel. No news either on any new signing, save the usual stack of rumours and I don’t do rumours, well except for the superb Cocktail bar that used to be in Covent Garden. Bloody typical reporting that today it is said that RVP and AW want a quick resolution to this transfer wrangle. Well why then could they have not settled it last summer, or even weeks ago at the end of the season?? Come on AFC/RVP get your fingers out and sort the mess out. If RVP has to/wants to go, sell him and use the money wisely to get someone else in.

If RVP goes, I want to see M’Vila. Llorente/Dempsey and another good centre back put in place, if we get these, then next season is going to be a ride…

Today the club released the new away kit… It’s Purple… released under “Purple Reign” and lets hope it is the start of a long reign for AFC… Purple, black stripes with red trimming on the sleeves, black shorts with a tidy pair of purple & black hooped socks. Always liked hooped socks, I think it makes players look hard. S13 surely must have had some input into the goalkeepers jersey…. PINK!!! I repeat… PINK!!! Still SirChesney is the sort of bloke that could carry this off and when, and they will, our opponents fans start mocking him, he’ll take it in good humour…

I think it’s the boots that let the kit down. Though it must be said the guys look well happy in this photo… Smile please!!!

For what it’s worth I quite like the new kit. It’s a football kit. It’s not like they are wearing Lionel Blairs with Brutus shirts… Will I buy it? Doubt it as I have already got the new home kit, but Son wants one.  It must also said that though the kit is rubbish, no really the kit is made from recycled waste plastic bottles. some 13 for each kit… So I’m going to grab hold of load of old plastic bottles, melt them down and see what I can come up with… Not sure the boys going to be happy with his new shirt 🙂

Today I found this in the news are AFC really in need of money that much that they can have the Labour Party Sports Dinner held at the Emirates. Well not so much the Labour party, more the fact that SAF was a speaker… Story here

Finally and late breaking news..  Today AC Milan sold Zlatan Ibrahimovic & Thiago Silva (£51m). Liverpool FC brought Jordan Henderson & Andy Carroll (£55m). Just who looks after the money at Anfield and surely he is not still working there.

Anyway enough for now, work beckons..
