You could never guess who Arsene Wenger is about to sign for Arsenal. He keeps his cards very close to his chest and Arsenal's transfers are always kept on the quiet.
He has been criticised, wrongly in my mind, about the amount of foreign players that he has brought to the club. Why should he be criticised for this? His only concern is how well Arsenal do. If a player he feels can improve Arsenal is foreign then he has every right to sign them regardless of nationality. England are not his priority, Arsenal are.
Sepp Blatter is trying to change the face of football. He wants an introduction of a new rule that only allows clubs five foreign players in the side and six from the said teams own national pool. The proposal has been thrown out, currently, as it breaks employment rules in the EU.
Knowing Sepp Blatter, he will persist with his idea. He wont give up. That is why I pose the question, has Arsene Wenger changed his transfer policy to suit FIFA?
Le Boss is an intelligent man, has he thought that maybe, however slim the chance is, Mr Blatter could get his idea up and running? As we Gooners know, that, if you excuse my French, could bugger us right up.
Has Le Boss signed Ramsey with this idea in his thoughts? Or is it just because Ramsey is young and very talented? It's rare for Arsene to buy British, and by all accounts we have an excellent crop of young British talent coming through the youth ranks at the moment.
Is Le Boss thinking this rule WILL come into place and preparing for it now? Signing Ramsey is a great move by Wenger. But he is one for the future, he isn't ready for the first-team yet.
We'll know for sure if our next signing is Steven Gerrard or Gareth Barry!
Keep it Goonerish..............
