With the end of the season less than 24 hours away, Vital Arsenal member 'G4L' give's us his views on what we can expect in the summer...
Just an attempt to summarize what has been at the heart of the transfer and other news/rumours regarding our magnificent club, and this is what we have so far:
Master Wenger has met a few potential jedi-candidates (simmy and I failed the sword test) for the role of Arsenal's Director of Football, the position vacated by his long-time comrade David Dein, who has allegedly joined the Dark Side of the Atlantic.
Master AW also praised the assistance of Obi Wan Ken Friar during this process, and has stressed that by talking to Mr. Friar he is talking to the Good Light Side i.e. whole Board of Directors. The appointing of the new Director of Football is expected to be made in July. Also it seems that it will be a person who knows the EPL (duh) and good news for the xenophobes - he could be English!!
Apparently Arsenal, Celtic and another Champions League team (that rules out Sp*rs) are chasing Stephen Appiah, the powerful Ghanian, who currently plies his trade in Turkey's Fenerbahce. This Turkish club defines loyalty as 'a chance to make a quick buck'. Current and former players include: The Incredible Sulk, Mateja 'Kabba Diawara' Kezman, Sergiy 'Sheva' Rebrov, Pierre Van Hooijdonk, Ariel Ortega, etc.
The former Juventus man, to use a lame phrase 'caught the eye of several top clubs' and could be in demand this summer. Arsenal was linked to him before the beginning of this season, but considering the fact that we just sold Muamba because he has no chance to get a game, signing him would mean that Song will be singing the blues with Pardew.
As seen here before, Wenger had denied the sale of TH for the record breaking 493,993rd time in the last 2 years and he is soon to be given a plaque for this achievement.
Nick is back and it is not Anelka! I for one am happy for both parts of the sentence (sorry Wingston). He is ready to fight it out with his teammates and hopefully he has not picked up any lessons from Joey Barton and John Hartson.
As the last game of the season is fast approaching, get ready to be entertained by the 3 rumours per hour starting Monday, one of them surely to be related with Henry's 'imminent' departure to Barca.
