Transfer Toss - Doyle, Cesc & 3 French Dudes

Transfer Toss - Doyle, Cesc & 3 French Dudes

So a new week begins with yet more transfer rumours doing the rounds.

Let`s start with the rumour that has the most smoke being omitted from the obvious fire, and that`s the story that Gael Clichy will travel to the Eastlands today for a medical ahead of his £7 Million move to Manchester City.

According to Sports News Ireland, Arsene Wenger will make a £12 Million bid for Wolves` Kevin Doyle as the Arsenal manager attempts to …. Erm …. Spend £12 Million.

Marseille`s Didier Deschamps, has rubbished rumours that the Gunners will sign French playmaker Mathieu Valbuena as a replacement for Cesc Fabregas or Samir Nasri …. Or both. Either way, it doesn`t matter, it`s bollocks.

Many source reports that this week will see the beginnings of a mass exodus in North London as Arsenal resign themselves to losing Cesc Fabregas & Samir Nasri on top of the probably transfer of Gael Clichy to Manchester City.

All in all …. Another great start to the week …….

Just thinking it might be interesting to start the week with a look at what the papers said would be done by the end of the last week. by my reckoning by today we should have sold four player (Cesc twice) and bought....I'm not sure....about ten?

Was thinking the same thing No10. After starting lumping all the days transfer news together into a daily article we must have been linked with half the world and sold all of our players.

Clichy is definitely off. Sad end to a promising Arsenal career. The last of the invincibles to depart. All the best to him.

It's the 'In the next few days' I love. I used to get excited by those words, now it seems to be used when there is no real news and something needs to be written. Fans of smaller clubs must get so *****ed off with having those little boxes on the back page covering their big transfer coup/loss in 8 words. When we get double page spreads saying nothing different to yesterdays but with the added line that the 'saga' (that the papers have created) will be 'wrapped up in the next few days'.
No 10

About time we got rid of Clichy. 2 years too late though. Massive liability when you consider the amount of goals conceded from our left. I really hope we can get Banes or someone of equal or better defensive abilities.
04/07/2011 12:52:00
Sad to see Clichy go. Bit like Cashley, he goes with his best years ahead of him for someone else to benefit from. Simply put, when players are hitting their mid-20s and signing new contracts, they know it's their chance for a big power up financially and Arsenal won't pay those wages. I'm sure he's gone for money as for anything else. I don't see him as bad as people made out. It's not as though all our defensive problems were down to him.
04/07/2011 12:57:00
Much as I'd love to imagine the technical wizardry of Kevin Doyle tipping and tapping his way towards the goal line for Arsenal... LOL!
04/07/2011 12:59:00
To be fair, Clichy's only going because he's a greedy ******** and they'd have offered him alot of money! As for Samir and Cesc, I hope to god that one of them stays with us, if they don't I really worry for our well being next season!

So Kieran Gibbs to move up?
