Arsenal Defender Joins The Blues

Arsenal Defender Joins The Blues

Arsene Wenger has seen fit to loan Swiss centre back, Johan Djourou, to Birmingham City until January.

Djourou, who Arsene Wenger told the press to 'forget about' when he signed for the Gunners, will join a whole host of ex-Gunners at St Anderew's as he aims to gain some valuable first team experience. Indeed Steve Bruce has much to thank the Arsenal gaffer for after loans and cheap sales helped the Blues regain their premiership status.

The move comes as quite a shock to me, with only four recognised centre halves at Arsenal, any injury would leave us with Senderos as a first choice with no immediate back up.

I wonder if Wenger has something up his sleeve?

is there ANY player that we could land from Birmingham? I mean after all these 'favours' (Upson, Pennant, Larsson, Muamba, Bendtner, Djourou) is there anyone worth taking a look at? I mean Brum does the players and us a favour as well, but AW could choose to loan them out to other clubs if he wished to do so. I am not the panicky type, but WE NEED TO SIGN SOME PLAYERS NOW

I'm tempted to say I see this as a mistake, but it might just be a good idea. He'll be back in Jan when Toure and Eboue jog on to ANC, having played five months of first team football. He'll be busy in the Brum defence as well, which should mean he's nice and sharp for Jan. Brum have obviously been told there's no question of buying him, Bruce said something like, "I think Johan can be an Arsenal defender for the next ten years." But I still think we need another signing before 31st August, preferably for a wide midfielder.

2 things: a) if we're signing a player we'd know feck all about it until it's done; b) Does anyone know for sure if Adebayor (Togo) is playing at the ANC and wasn't he suspended or smth by his FA?

I thought it ws a huge mistake till I saw it was only till January. He will get some great expeirance then he will come back when we need him this year.

That's an excellent theory actually LD, however an injury would make that plan look rather silly. And considering our luck over the last two years I must say I don't feel good about this.

I'm very much inclined to agree Rocky, we still look short at the back, though I understand Sagna can be deployed at CB, as can Bert as well. But I'd say our squad is too small if anything and would question trimming it. I think what I said above is probably in AW's thinking.

AW is interested in Luka Modrić from Dinamo Zagreb (8mil. pounds)

Im not sure this was a good idea. unless he plans to use a couple of the reserve team players if we get an injury to Gallas or Toure. also Gilberto can play there and Sagna if needs be so maybe that is Wengers plan if things go tits up with injuries
