Daniele De Rossi of Roma has been linked with a move to Arsenal recently but there is no chance of that move happening now we have drawn them in the Champions League.
I'm quite happy with the draw. I would have been happy with anyone other than Barcelona really. Not through fear, I just want revenge against them in the final.
I doubt De Rossi would have joined anyway. He is Roma through and through. He was born in Rome, he came through the youth system at the club and his father also played for Roma.
Add that to the fact that Italian internationals barely leave Italy through fear of jeopardising their place in the national side and you have some valid reasons for him staying at Roma!
Major Arsenal shareholder Lady Bracewell-Smith has been given the Gooner from the board at Arsenal.
Her family have been involved with Arsenal for almost 70 years and she is far from happy. I don't blame her either!
She is a Gooner who loves the club and the way she has been ousted is pretty disgraceful.
She has explained that some of views were ignored on many occasions and I think that may have something to do with football being a "mans world" so to speak.
The Arsenal board are pretty old school and I imagine for that reason she was ignored, which is wrong of course.
You know the saying "A woman scorned"? Well I'd be a little worried if I was in the current board at Arsenal.
Lady Bracewell-Smith may at sometime in the future reveal what is really going on behind the scenes at Arsenal.
We Gooners are not being told the truth by someone be it Wenger or the board and it would be interesting to find out wouldn't it!
Keep it Goonerish...............
