Â£40m? Imagine what we could do with that. Â£40m is:
- Four Thierry Henrys
- Three Sylvain Wiltords
- Two-and-a-half Jose Reyes’s, or
- One hundred and sixty Kolo Toures.
Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger has defended our right to select non-British players, saying “Some people can be surprised by the fact we had non-British players but we have a club based on values, qualities and attitudes and, when I work with the players on a daily basis, you don’t look at where they come from”. Well put.
Arseblogger has given us a little insight into the side that will face Sheffield United at Highbury tomorrow, revealing that Flamini, Fabregas, Almunia, and Van Persie will all, as expected, start.
I really hope we make a big push for the FA Cup. It’s probably the simplest path to silverware left open to us, and it’s a competition that we have a great affiliation with, especially in recent years. The semi-final defeat against Manchester United last season was a real disappointment, and to bounce back by going all the way to Cardiff would be a tremendous thing for the club, and especially us fans.
C’mon you Gooners.
