Wenger & Grimandi to sign up today?

795 comments June 29th, 2007

Last night, BBC London reported that at an “emergency” board meeting today, Arsene Wenger would extend his contract, whilst ratifying the appointment of a Director of Football: Gilles Grimandi. Whilst arseblog reports that these stories may be “premature”, it would correlate with the information I’ve recieved from elsewhere if something happened in the next few days.

Getting Grimandi signed up would enable us to head out on the transfer trail. His first port of call might be Auxerre, where Barkary Sagna resides. His Vice-President has come out and spoken on the subject, bleating about Sagna’s desire to leave. Frankly, if you really wanted to keep hold of a player, you wouldn’t keep going to the press and saying, “Oh dear oh dear, I hope Arsenal don’t come back with a multi-million pound offer, because then we’ll definitely sell…”. Auxerre always have, and always will be, a selling club. If our interest is real, Sagna is a definite possibility.

However, he’s hardly the sort of player who will appease our disgruntled fanbase. One name that would, perhaps, is Carlos Tevez. Tevez yesterday turned down a move to Inter Milan, and his slave-driver Kia Joorabchian said of the decision:

“Inter put a deadline on the decision and Carlos’ heart is really in the Premier League.”

Throw in the fact that Joorabchian is an Arsenal fan and Tevez has previously spoken openly about wanting to stay in London, and we’ve got to be in with a shout…

Cesc Fabregas has been named our Official Player of the Year. Gilberto woz robbed.

ps. Congratulations to Spurs on getting Bent. For £5m more, they could’ve had Michael Owen AND Obafemi Martins. I don’t know if that says more about the stupidity of Newcastle or Spurs.
