Reyes Not Coming Back? Oh Well!

Reyes Not Coming Back? Oh Well!

Waking up this morning and reading the news that Arsenal's Jose Antonio Reyes will not come back to Arsenal was heartbreaking it really was, I mean I struggled to keep my Cornflakes down. Not.

Jose Reyes had all the potential in the world and yet his lack of balls to push through and battle his way to the top was greater than his talent.

'I don't even want to think about going back,' said Reyes to FourFourTwo magazine.

'I'd love to end my career at Real Madrid. I'm happy here. I wouldn't say it's a relief to be back in Spain, but I'm happy here.'

'I don't think I failed in The Premiership, but for players like me English football is very hard. It really doesn't suit me.'

'I struggled to adapt to England and so did my family. Everything's shut at 5pm. There's nothing to do, nowhere to go. I just got bored.'

'I always wanted to come to Real Madrid. I didn't have to think about it. Hopefully we'll win something this season to prove we're a new Madrid and it will go from there.'

To blame his failings on the fact that the shops close at 5pm is testament to the lads attitude, and it is that attitude that means not one Arsenal fan will give one good crap upon hearing the news today.

I really dont give a stuff about him not coming back...but any Londoners care to elaborate on the 5pm thing? You're supposed to be the centre of the universe...right? (Its by far the most interesting part of the article)

Jammathon, I work in London and can testify that nowhere I go closes at 5p.m (my wife wishes it did). I would rather have a fat, hairy easten european transvestite use my boat race as a bidet than have that little tosser back.

Do you think that he actually did live in London??? I've lived in London all my life and found that the only thing that consistently closed at 5pm were office businesses and a wigmakers down in Praed Street in Paddington. I often wondered how that lightfooted diving winger managed to get his hair looking so damn fine!!! And to say that he didn't think he'd failed in the Premiership....??? I'm not just turning against him coz he doesn't want to come back, I never liked him much anyway. Is The Beast back from injury tonight???

No, the Beast won't be back for a couple of weeks yet!

This kid has so much talent,it's just a real shame he has no brain! He has been incredibly disrespectful to Wenger and the club and if he were on fire, I would urinate him, but only after guzzling a litre of petrol.

Chaps, I have asked our Chav mates on the Vital site if any of them remember Eidur diving against us at the Brige in 2004 to win a penalty and getting booked for his troubles. He was later sent off for fouling Vieira in a 2-1 win for the Gooners. Was anyone else there?? I ask you because Jose reckons he has developed this talent since moving to Spain and I can't believe nobody has mentioned it. We thought the ref had given a pen at the time because we had that shocking letterbox view from behind the dugout (cheap at £50 quid) and the incident was right next to the penalty spot.
