Reyes In More Picture Madness

After being rumbled on the radio & snapped in a shirt, Reyes has once again been caught sniffing around Real Madrid.

Earlier this week Jose Antonio Reyes was pictured in the Sun newspaper wearing a Real Madrid shirt. Granted it was an old shirt and there was no way of knowing when the picture was taken, but there is no getting away from the fact that Jose looked happy in the Spanish giants shirt.

Then there was the incident last year when Reyes was conned into believing he was talking to the Real Madrid president and admitted he wanted to play for the club, once again you could argue that Reyes was a little thrown by the call and just told the 'president' what he wanted to hear out of respect.

But this new picture is somewhat disturbing. It shows Reyes in a 'thumbs up' pose in front of a pc screen that clearly shows the Marca website with the story of Reyes to Madrid.

As with the stories before, I've been able to rationalise what had happened, but to me this picture is staggering. Words can't describe what the little Spaniard is doing and it seems naive to say the least.

I think it maybe time to cut our losses and let the player have the transfer he so clearly wants, after all, rumours have resurfaced that Baptista will be makeweight in the transfer.

Well I'll let you decide for yourselves, please use the article comments to voices your opinions as I'd be very interested to hear some different theories on this.

Is it Naivity or Stupidity ? or both? in light of this picture and it looks pretty genuine, he has to go, its been pretty obvious over his time with us that he's quite weak, but this is staggering!!

he is just tryin to speed up the transfer to real by doing these pics to antagonise the board or maybe AW. he doesn't have to do this he jus has to lay low coz he'll get his wish providing real meet our asking price, which i believe they will. Goodbye Jose..

oi da papers are sayin that there gonna throw in baptista as part of the deal. wouldn't be such a bad idea but i'd prefer straight cash. buy hargreaves a target for man u, as gilbertos replacement sooner or later, but he'll provide cover for gilby. let walcott occupy the left side left vacant by reyes, he'll provide cover for rosicky. or go 4 nuri sahin for the left side and switch him to the right when freddie gets past his sell by date. i dunno jus want us to buy some quality players soon coz i'm getting tired and bored of waiting, especially when the premiership is a week away basically...

Get rid of him! Overrated. Ribery would deliver much more. A Robinho swap would be nice though. Basically - Arsenal will sell when Ribery is confirmed. If he isn't. They wont.

Has any other player worked so hard to engineer a move away from their club? Can only think of Paul Ince and appearing in the Utd team photo before he'd even signed for them (that’s right, tapping up was not invented by Chelsea).

“buy hargreaves a target for man u, as gilbertos replacement sooner or later” My, my. Chelsea get a lot of (unwarranted) criticism from oppo fans, including Gooners, for supposedly buying every player on the planet and letting them rot on the bench, just so other teams can’t get them. And here you are espousing Arsenal doing just that!

well ribery has pledged his future to marseille if u didn't kno and also if we did buy him he'd be cup-tied for the CL as he played in the uefa cup last night. Real would never allow robinho to leave, plus he's a bit too lightweight for the EPL. Nuri Sahin is lightweight but his abilities are exceptional and would benefit our all round play i'm telling you guys. He is another rosicky and probably will become better than tomas, so i stress we go for him. Same as hargreaves, diarra or mavuba. Plus a quality left back and centre back.

Sahin been around while with man utd after him for as little as 4m he would be a class signing did exception well in under 17 tourny. And Hargreaves would be a good signing as he is also so verstile. And as protocal said with Ribrey now cuptied and made up with marseille, it is highly unlikely he would move.

The reason reyes is not already a real madrid player is because they are offering something like 7 million for him. To get him they will have to double that because otherwise arsenal will lose out on the deal which wouldnt be acceptable in selling a 22 year old current international. An interesting piece in that marca today was saying that robinho & baptista are not part of capello's plans & that he doesnt want to play them. As we all know marca are madrid's mouthpiece so there is probably truth in that statement.

Reyes is from a gypsy backround. We all know what their like for driving a deal. I bet he can't wait to spit on his hand, give wenger back 20 quid to sweeten the deal and hitch up and **** off to Madrid. Best of luck Jose. Shame you didn't work out. Thanks for the screamer at Chelsea and some flashes of brilliance.

well im glad that u agree wiv me. Now hopefully AW reads this and acts on it coz we have the money now so we should jus go for it. we've lost quite a few experienced players so we need to add more quality to the squad. defence is where we need the most experience. not neccessarily in the other areas as players we have have gained exp. sahin would operate on the left wiv rosicky and eventually move to the right wen freddie gets past it. walcott will be blooded in slowly and will eventually operate on the flanks or possibly up front if bendtner, lupoli and aliadiere don't make the grade. its worth it and we shud buy them players sahin, hargreaves, LB & CB and we'll win everything...

GunnerPete says....Blindjak should read naive or dimjak mate. The press & fans may chat about AFC signing some of these players, but in the past nine years, how many have AFC signed per year??? ONE, and usuallly after selling one or two 'stars' to idiot clubs for big big fees. But Kensingnton berks otherwise know as Chavski, not only talk it, they go and buy it. They are so cocky they dont realise that all the runours are started for Chavski to see, just in time for them to rush in and buy, hence SWP. This year I hope the rest just get on with playing each other, and letting Chavs have all the trophies until they realise they, unlike all the other real clubs, dont get any respect for winning. In fact I can see the Kings Road mob being in a league of one soon, and probably still think they deserve to be accepted. Sadly, they will never be seen as worthy champions by the people that matter, other supporters, worldwide!

Reyes's saga should be an opportunity for AW to grab Robinho or Batista, players that he was prepared to spend about £18M each a year ago. I would prefere Robinho, but either would do for me. How long it took the young Fabregas to convaince us? just one year. So for me, I don't think Reyes would ever settle with us; the best thing is to get something for the club in his likely transfer to Real and close his chapter. If we get Robby or Batista, we will be better off signing a world class defensive midfield to allow Gilberto to refresh and importantly, allow Fabregas to get more offensive, as he's got a fantastic goal scoring touch to be kept on ball winning duty.

i dunno bought robinho maybe in a couple yrs but not now, he's fast and skillful, a bit lightweight. baptista maybe, strong, powerful jus wat we need 4 the EPL, but he had his chance last year. Sahin yes has everything, although young will be one of the greatest players around. hargreaves yes has a hard working engine and can run up and down for a whole match. both will be cheap options and as we'll have money from the reyes and cole transfer we shud go 4 them. i'm not tryin to say robinho wouldn't improve our team, but we've got walcott whos probably faster and will be eventually better so need for robinho. baptista maybe could be our DM, but i'd prefer owen hargreaves as hes english and we need those players as we're maybe losing cole and would definitely help our team by winning balls and allowing us for quick counter attacks where we will be so ruthless. sahin exact copy of his mentor rosicky will be excellent addition with his dribbling skills and near perfect long passing. i jus think these type of players are more likely to improve our squad and take us on a whole other level which no team will be able to compete wiv... i kno u guys with footballing knowledge will agree wiv me... i luv the arsenal and would be clicking my heels if they made these signings. c'mon wenger i'm sending this message out to u using my telepathic powers lol. plz sign em up..

GunnerPete, you are entirely missing the point. Where did I talk about the number of players signed? What I pointed out is that an Arsenal fan has advocated buying a regular first team player, and international to boot, with the express intent of keeping him out of a rivals clubs hands, only to have him bide his time on the bench. This is an accusation (and an erroneous one at that) that Chelsea fans have been inundated with from Gooners since we signed SWP. Call me naive but isn’t this hypocrisy?

Mr Ash, I did cheer on France in the WC as well as other teams who played attractive football (not England's hoof merchants then). Is claiming we're a disgrace for having few English players really any different from slating us for having lots of black players? Not at all. When all is said and done the England team epitomised the current English player, they gave it the biggun about how they were gonna win the tournament, and then blamed Ronaldo when they stumbled out (nothing to do with the inherent inferiority in the side). The French stayed quiet, ignored the criticism and then produced. If Cole, Neville, J Cole (biggest diver in Prem- bigger than Reyes!) and Owen, who shows more passion prostituting himself for sda, northern rock etc than he has ever shown playing football, are the staple of the English footballer, I'd rather have a team of Fabregas's and Toure's thanks. Stop reading the sun mate, those that make you believe attrocities can make you commit attrocities.

I think the point Mr.C is trying to make is that the image on red square looks real (even though it's not credible). Images are very easily manipulated with computer wizardry. Even a technophobe like me could have done that. I'm not saying it's definitely not real, but I'll wait and see before I get all hot and flustered.

I agree with Achilles. He's under contract and will most likely stay. And if he goes it will be because AW wants him out. No other reason. Get behind our leader mates. Has he ever disappointed? All I can say is that barring last season's fourth place we haven't left the top two since he came here.

i would like to see reyes leave to be honest, i know he is one of our best with regards to assists, but he loses the ball all the time. he only plays well when the sun is out. if we get 15m i'd snap reals hand off to get it. too many malcontents at arsenal the last couple of years, sol is gone, cashley will be gone soon(fingers crossed) and now reyes. does not matter what job you have if you do not want to be there you do a crap job and it is worse for footballs as so many of them are prima donnas. 40k to 120k a week, i'd be on the pitch for 90 mins running till my legs fell off, let reyes go and ashley too, when we play chelsea eboue can clatter cashley for all of us
