I don't think a single Arsenal fan could have predicted the signing of Eduardo Da Silva frome Dinamo Zagreb yesterday.
But the fact he's unheard of in England is not a problem for most Arsenal fans, even though they were hoping for a massive signing.
His goal record, albeit it in a league with a much lower standard than the Premiership, speaks for it's self.
As I do, Peter Hill-Wood has faith in Arsene Wenger, and believes that the manager may have pulled off another master stroke. Speaking to The Daily Star The Arsenal Chairman said: 'He's a very highly-regarded player and he's been bought to score goals.
'Arsene is full of surprises and he knows what he's doing. This player is certainly better than some of the forwards we've been linked with. (anyone think he may be hinting at his best mate Anelka there?)
Hill-Wood went on to say that although he hopes for more goals from midfield next season, he believes that Da Silva can bring those sometimes illusive goals to the team.
'Scoring goals was a bit of a problem last season but hopefully we'll also have a few more from midfield.
'Arsene has unearthed a few gems before with players who have not been particularly well-known and we hope it continues.'
Then Peter came out with my favrouite quote of the summer: 'As always with Arsene there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes.' Sounds like a hint that more singings may be imminent.
To quote Mr Burns... 'Eeeeeexcellent.'
