The New Adventures of Lassie

The New Adventures of Lassie

According to Skysports.com, Lassana Diarra, the young midfielder with a patience that is even shorter than he is, has agreed a three-and-a-half year deal with Portsmouth.

After spending a grand total of juuuuust over half a season at Arsenal, young master Diarra though he should be an automatic choice, and promptly stomped around all flatfooted, sticking out his lower lip in super-sulky stylee, folding his arms, chucking himself on the floor, and throwing toys out of his pram. He then made himself so excited with all that commotion that he then sicked all over himself. Silly boy.

The upshot of all that was, that he was so embarrassed that all his teammates and friends saw his jumper covered in puke, and he couldn't face seeing them again, so he demanded a transfer.

So he's joined Pompey for a fee of around £5m. Just make sure you play him constantly Harry, otherwise he'll be setting sail for pastures new all over again...

Very harsh to criticise the lad. He's clearly highly rated and with Euro2008 soon, he needs regular first team football to make the French squad. It shows that international football is important to many footballers despite what some fans think. With leading teams, it is impossible to keep everyone happy especially with so many full internationals in each squad

Shame to see him go. I think if he had a little more patience he could have been a big player for us in the future.

The criticism of Diarra is not due to his desire for 1st team football (heck, the whole Arsenal squad wants exactly that), but in the manner in which he handled it. His attitude is poor despite the lads' obvious talent. I'm happy to see him go, the deal has seen a profit for the club, the player will hopefully get what he wants.

Arsene just announce Flamini's new contract really soon cuz i'm getting nervous now. also according to sky sports, we are tracking Torpedo Moscow defender Vyacheslav Dmitriev, who is known as The Elephant because he is big, strong and deceptively quick. does anybody know anything about him or seen him play?
