Goodbye Quincy

16 comments February 1st, 2006

Never again will we witness the master of the stepover: the King of the Carling Cup has gone to Moscow.

Reports have suggested that the fee could be as high as £2m, so with Walcott now arrived, and Lupoli and Bendtner still impressing in the reserves, it’s probably a good move for all parties.

David Bentley has made permanent his move to Blackburn, so no doubt he’ll soon be moaning about how he didn’t get an opportunity at Arsenal because he was English. I would suggest it was because he wasn’t very good.

Another not-so-young player, Jeremie Aliadiere (now 22), has been recalled from West Ham only to join Wolves on loan. After failed spells at Celtic and now the Hammers this season, this really is last-chance saloon for Jeremie.

West Ham are our opponents tonight, and Thierry Henry, Robert Pires, Gilberto, and Dennis Bergkamp are all available again. However, Lauren could now be out for up to a month, and Spanish pair Fabregas and Reyes are suspended.

Philippe Senderos will continue at left-back with Johan Djourou in the centre, and I for one hope that Flamini and Diaby keep their places in the side. Gilberto does not deserve a starting spot.

A win tonight is vital after dropping out of both cups. Come on Arsenal.
