Ronaldinho: Beast Will Be The Beauty

Ronaldinho: Beast Will Be The Beauty

Brazillian show pony Ronaldinho says that Julio Baptista has everything it takes to excel in the Premiership.

Ronaldinho has played with and against Baptista in international and domestic football respectively, and he feels the Brazillian powerhouse has all the credentials it takes to become a top premiership star.

'I have known him a long time and he is a great player,' said Ronaldinho.

'It will be easy for him to settle because his game is totally suited to the Premiership.

'I don't see why he can't become one of the stars of the season.'

However, why we should listen to the opinions of Mr Ed is beyond me. I'm sure the Beast will prove his worth in his own time.

robinho is unsettled at real madrid. maybe he could be a gooner by january. hopefully we can grab him on loan and then sign him on a permanent basis.

It will be interesting to see how 'The Beast' does. He is certainly a powerful player (just look at the size of the bugger!)- which we have been lacking lately. My only concern is that I seem to remember, although I may be mistaken, just after we failed to sign him at the beginning of last season; during his first game for Madrid, didn't he stamp on someone's leg, or at least make a very nasty, very deliberate challenge?

Spurs fans must have known that if The beast was to come to London, given Arsenal's previous interest, Ashburton Grove would be his natural destination. They are not that dumb. Give them some credit. Not a lot, jsut some.

always said we needed a strong attacking midfielder, he knows where the goal is, like Essien in build he will frighten alot of people with his strength and power. I am looking forward to this saturday and seeing him play and Boro.

As far as Arsenal are concerned I believe Wenger is now facing his biggest challenge as a manager since taking the job. A lot of players have left and, thanks to a stadium loan deal in which they signed away their gate receipts for the next several years, they are going to have a major problem raising transfer revenue. We have seen evidence of this already in the fact that Baptista can't be signed to a long term deal unless Reyes is bought by Madrid first and Gallas only being signed on the back of Cole's defection. Therefore Wenger is going to have to depend on finding young talent and by bringing his existing youngsters up to speed quicker, evidenced by the amount of loan outs he has put in place. I know Wenger has been successful in spotting young talent in the past but it's interesting to note that Commoli, the man who discovered a lot of that talent for Wenger now works for Spurs, who are now signing the type of player from the French League who would have been going Arsenal's way, Zokora being an excellent example. Replacing a successful team is a difficult job, George Graham couldn't do it and Alex Ferguson is trying manfully at United so it's going to be interesting watching Wenger try, at least he still has Henry, God knows what would have happened if he had left. So Arsenal fans may have had a good run but for how much longer, will we soon be seeing a half full Emirates or should that be half empty,anyway here's hoping.
