Is He? Isn't He? Is He? Isn't He?

Is He? Isn't He? Is He? Isn't He?

Once again the subject of Jose Antonio Reyes to Real Madrid has reared it's ugly head.

Apparently, Jose has been speaking to Real's dodgy newspaper, Marca, and has told of his difficulty in settling in England. Again.

If this report is to be beileved, Reyes is hoping not to play in next week's Champions League qualifer as that would leave him cup tied and would seriously hinder his chances of a transfer.

'He [Arsene Wenger] has not said anything to me, and I do not know if I am going to play or not,' he told Marca.

'I hope not and that everything can be solved before. It is clear that if I play the move to Madrid would be complicated.

'But if I must play, I will play.'

'The subject is being taking care of by Mariano Aguilar, she is speaking with the clubs and has my full confidence,' he continued.

'I cannot deny I am a little anxious, I know people want me [to stay in England] but I cannot adapt to this life.

'I miss Spain and I have a unique opportunity to return with Real Madrid. Everybody must understand that I cannot let an opportunity like this pass - Madrid is unique.'

I guess we will know more on the subject when the squad for next Tuesday's game is released.

If jose goes, I'll harbour no ill will. It's fair enough a Spaniard declaring Real as a dream move and he or Wenger for that matter have made no secret that he's failed to settle in London. Maybe a Baptista / Robinho swap could be in line. I also see that Fran Merida's been named in the squad for the Boreham Wood friendly. Watch this space, the kids supposed to be top drawer. Cesc mark 2!! And yet another gem uncovered by AW!

How can he say this to the marca. It just doesn't make any sense. The marca is a bulls**t paper and these are just annoying rumours. Jose Antonio was in the pre-season camp in Austria, and now is in Holland to play against Alkmaar. So how he managed to give an interview in the marca baffles me. He probably did give this interview, but it could've been months ago, and as their isn't that much transfer activity going around trust the press to regurgitate old garbage. He is staying and btw he was awesome in that last friendly supplying those crosses and playing those long balls. Is Fran Merida really in the squad d11gunner? I hope so...

Well if he goes then all the best. If he is that adamant and Real will give us Robinho in return then we should go for it. But knowing Wenger is a big fan of Baptista we will probably go for him. Ah well

Good news if we can get Robinho or Batista against Reyes. I never believe he would ever settle with Arsenal, as the team needs a lot of ball winners when Reyes is playing, because he gives away a lot of balls. No doubt, he is an excellent footballer but, with Gilberto being our only ball winner, we are always going to suffer with Reyes's carelessness.

true maybe but he did learn to keep the ball, for example if he ran at a player and couldn't get past he would turn back and play it simple. He didn't lose it that much near the end of the season. i think he eradicated that from his game. but maybe you're right Robinho has the natural ability to go past players and would be a straight swap for Reyes on the left, but Baptista would be ideal as Diaby is out till October and his physique and strength would bode us well in the Premiership, so maybe this could be a good thing, but i will still miss Reyes and think what could've been...
