I realise that Arsenal are about to play in an hour but I'm gutted by the fact that Gareth Barry has decided to stay at Aston Villa until at least the end of the season.
This rules out any hope we had of signing Alonso from Liverpool who will remain at Anfield now.
I really thought that we would sign Alonso on dead-line day and that Liverpool would get Barry. Well, we can kiss goodbye to Alonso now.
The question is; Who are we going to sign in the middle of the park? Options are running out fast and so is precious time.
Keep it Goonerish...........
