Cor Blimey me old chappies and chappetes it seems like ages since I last posted but I took the advice of a Wrighty7 hater and have decided to post 'like other good blogs' only when there is news to comment on.
Also I have been on the piss pretty much since Wednesday so I have been in no fit state to write. In fact, I would have been a lot worse than usual.
Let me get this straight though. Wrighty7 is not a good blog and it aint a blog that gives Gooners news. It just gives an opinion. I have no insider knowledge but I have several numerous complaints; just how I like it.
Anyway, we keep being linked with a move for Brazilian enforcer Felipe Melo who received more yellow and red cards last season than I did Christmas cards.
I heard he is a 'Brazilian Nut'. Well, £15m is a lot of money for something that is 18% protein, 13% carbohydrates, and 69% fat but if it protects the back four and kicks the shit out of Robbie Keane, Joey Barton and co next season then I'm all for it.
Phillipe Senderos wants to stay in Italy, so perhaps we won't even have to spend £15m on the nut. Perhaps we could offer Big Phil and £10m for Big Fil?
In my 'absence' we finally signed that Belgian bun Thomas Vermaelen. I honestly thought that it might drag on throughout the whole of summer. That's how we usually do things. Ask Samir Nasri and Andrei Arshavin, who sat in the cold the whole of January waiting for something to happen.
I'm glad we've done a bit of business early in the transfer window for a change but most Gooners I speak to have mixed feelings about capturing Vermaelen.
Some feel he isn't good enough for Arsenal, some are quite happy. I'm going to reserve judgement on the fella until he has actually settled into the Premiership.
It may take a while but for Wenger to spend an 'undisclosed fee' on him must mean he has a great chance because Arsene doesn't spend 'undisclosed fee's' on defenders.
Keep it Goonerish.................
