Bacary breezes in

Bacary breezes in

Arsenal have officially announced the signing of Bacary Sagna from French outfit Auxerre for a rumoured to be £6m, possibly rising to £7.5m depending on the usual things like trophies won, clean shieets, goals scored, how many times we beat the spuds next year, etc.

The 24 year old French national, born to Senegalese parents, will be setting his sights on representing France in the Euros, which are fast approaching, and what better way to do that than playing for North London's finest.

Sagna told Arsenal.com, 'It's amazing. If someone had told me that one day I would be an Arsenal player I would not have believed him. I am very happy for my family, my friends and also for my future. It is really a positive move.'

'I think this is one of the best English sides, the one that plays the best football. The fact that it is a young team and there is high-quality training are extra positives compared to other English teams.'

So we've strengthened the defence, we give Eboue a reason to keep his concentration up til the final whistle sounds and we've got a bloke who's name sounds very much like Lasagne, which I'm sure Gooners will take to their hearts from the off, for the scope it'll give them to bring the famous chant out for the spuds.

next up, a wing wizard???

oxfordspur, we're all hoping that Justin and Eboue will both stay at the club, as what the one offers in attacking flair, the other makes up for in assured defending. »»Arsene Knows««

I think the headline back in 1996 was "Arsene Who" aswell Cock-muncher. Ever heard of Anelka, Toure, Fabregas, Vieira, Petit before they came? nah didnt think so. I bet you knew of Assou-Ekotto, Ghaly, Rocha and the rest of the piles of s h i t that have passed through shoebox city tho enit.

Eboue is a right back and has to learn to compete cause with Hleb in the world of Arsenal there NO way he's gonna move or get pushed forward.

Ain't it funny how the first comments about our new signings always come from spuds... it's getting a bit obsessive now don't you think? we don't have to justify our signings to any of you so why don't crawl back to your site or hole...whichever you prefer
