Good Afternoon Gooners and Goonerettes, Thanks for still reading my ramblings as usual.

So i start of by saying that im about to break my code of silence regarding the what it seems imminent departure of Cesc Fabregas. So its being reported by many that Cesc is on the verge of completing his dream move back to Barcelona for a fee of initially starting off at £29million with £4million add-ons due to performances and bonuses and so on with a further £4million paid over 5 years out of Cesc’s pocket himself to lock the deal finally, the latter which i doubt but you never know.

Its clear to all Arsenal fans that Cesc doesn’t want to play for Arsenal anymore, regardless of some of his excellent performances throughout last season, it remained clear his thoughts weren’t with Arsenal and they were clearly on trying to form a deal which would see him move to Barcelona.

Theres no doubt that i am saddened by the thought of losing Cesc but in the manner of which Barcelona have gone about in the past 2-3 years of blatant tapping and de-stabilising the thoughts of Fabregas are disgusting and thats the only thing i will be happy to see the end of. Losing Cesc is massive, there is a split view in most fans of coursed some understand some dont, some furious at it, im somewhere in-between. Cesc isn’t certainly irreplaceable as we all know that no player is bigger than the club at Arsenal but it will be a major loss if the money isn’t reinvested in the right places with the right players, having said that we only have roughly 3 weeks to do so. I just hope that Wenger has already lined up the replacements and is awaiting to receive the money gained from the sell of Cesc to instantly inject into purchasing replacements in the correct areas.

So far we have had the likes of Mata being constantly linked with a move to Arsenal, after supposedly breaking down in talks with Valencia although a fee had been agreed they eventually hesitated and decided to reject it, this can only mean Arsenal have them blinking and possibly with a little higher bid made it could well make them accept it and stick to it knowing how much in debt the club are in. Another name doing the rounds today is Brazilian born Jadson who currently plays his trade in the Ukrainian league for Shakhtar. In my honest opinion the only time i saw him was in the UCL games against us, and he seems a bit too agile to play his trade in the English Premier League, and of course him being only 5″5 or something like that doesn’t make it an even more welcome considering we are a small team in the first place. Jadson is a centre midfielder by trade and likes to link play with the striker, i really dont understand the need to by another small centre mid with the likes of Wilshere, Song and Ramsey already that dont posses a great deal of height.


Ive been told that the Scott Dann signing which i said in yesterdays post would prove a massive bargain at the reported fee of only £6million considering we payed up to £8million for the ever so daft services of Squid. Ive also been told that Arsenal wouldnt be done with defensive signings due to the mass amount of injurys we’ve collected over the past weeks, and Wenger is willing to buy a further addition being a Centre Back possibly Gary Cahill as i hear Bolton are now willing to take a Player + Cash deal with the possibility of that player in exchange being Squid.

So on that note with all the Transfer in’s and out’s we now await for the big kick off against Newcastle this saturday only a day away! Our midfield is slimming as time goes on so it will be interesting to see what type of team we field for the upcoming game.

Also on a quick note anyone with any suggestions for pre-drinks for the UCL Qualifier against Udinese next Tuesday would be much appreciated, would be nice to get some down my neck with a few Gooners before witnessing a nervy game.

Yours Goonerly.
