Alex Song Signs Contract Extension

Alex Song Signs Contract Extension

It's contract signing season at Arsenal, and Alex Song is the latest player to join in the fun.

With news that Eduardo da Silva has committed pen to paper, and that Arsene Wenger is also hopeful of tying down Rosicky and Gallas to new contracts in the coming weeks, it's no great surprise that there are more contract talks in the offing.

Alex Song is arguably one of the most improved players in the league this season, and has become an integral cog in the Arsenal machine, so it's good to hear that the Cameroonian (is that a word?) has committed his future to the Gunners on that back of, at least in my opinion, a man of the match performance against Standard Liege in the Champions League group stage match that saw us qualify for the knock out stages as group winners.

Let's hope that Alex continues his improvements and goes on to become one of the best defensive midfielders in Europe.

Great news, indeed. Shows the Manager is looking at the club's future and tying down the key players (into it). To think most fan blogs were howling for a "world class" DM, during the last window and at the start of the season. So much for that clamour; Song is, arguably, in the top 3, today, on recent performances.

What a pleasure it's been to watch this young man develop and what a pleasure it is to formerly stick two digital fingers up at every last **** that decided to boo him on his Premiership debut. ***** you very much.

Probably the first name on the team sheet. Happy for him and us.

A sign of the tremendous progress that Song has made, and a vindication of the faith Wenger placed in him. Now, if only the same happens to Diaby, we're all set.

If you had any grip on current contract law mutters, you'd know how important it is to tie players down on contracts as much as possible nowadays. But being a Chelsea fan, I rather doubt you fully understand the ending to Ocean's Eleven, so asking you to realise the intricacies of contract law is rather like asking a bear to ***** in a toilet.

Whats happened Rocky? Surely the headline was Song Billongs at Arsenal?! Massive thumbs up to Young Song I never saw him making it with us but the improvement he has shown over the last year has been tremendous and he has made that improvement under intense pressure.

I can't believe that prat collymore was calling him our weak link a few weeks back, why the hell has this idiot been given his own radio show? And more puzzling is why the hell did I tune in??
