It's been a long time coming but it seems that Arsenal have finally grown a big pair of knackers!
I couldn't believe my eyes when scrolling through the Arsenal website I came across a page that shows transfer links to the club.
It can be seen here.
This is a more unusual move than Tom Jones by Arsenal.com. I know that it says the page 'should taken with a pinch of salt' but what purpose does it actually serve?
I like to think that Arsenal are giving some stick back. In my opinion over the years Arsenal have had more players tapped up and linked with moves away than anyone.
Personally I'm happy we are doing the same. It may seem dirty but I reckon Arsenal have been bullied enough and a little fight back doesn't hurt anybody.
The likes of Barcelona or Real Madrid have been doing it since the Stone Age and more recently Manchester City have been publicly declaring their interest in players in a bid to unsettle them.
Why shouldn't Arsenal rock their boats for a change?
Yes I know we are more classy than those clubs but I reckon playing them at their own game is a good move by Arsenal.
However, the more 'suspicious' Gooners may believe this a ploy by Arsenal to get our juices flowing.
I've heard that Arsenal tickets, and season-tickets, aren't selling as freely as in the past. Linking big-name buys may whet the appetite again for Arsenal fans.
Surely Arsenal wouldn't be that devious? I don't think so.
It's nice to be linked with big-names but I wouldn't get too excited or distressed this summer over transfers.
Yes, it's obvious we could do with 'freshening' up the squad but with the World Cup just around the corner I expect a summer of pure transfer 'speculation' madness.
Try to remain calm. I will. If you don't you may end up going mental like Britney Spears or something.
It's going to be a long summer, chillax and let it pan out.
You may end up being surprised.
Keep it Goonerish.............
