No bids for Balotelli or Dzeko

Add comment December 5th, 2009

Not much time for bloggery as I’m about to board a train to Birmingham for work purposes.  This means I won’t get to see the game today.  And I’ll be in Birmingham.  It’s a real double blow.

Arsene’s Friday press conference saw the manager play down bids for both Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko.  Not only that, but he was keen to manage expectations ahead of the transfer window:

“Let’s not dream too much. In January you need to find a world-class player, who has not played in the Champions League, so we need a very good Christmas. I am not a big fan of January, that’s why I say I will be on the market but that doesn’t mean that I will buy. To find the players who have not played in the Champions League, who are world-class, who are available… I wish you good luck.”

It’s Stoke at home today, and I envisage the team will be: Almunia – Sagna Gallas Vermaelen Traore – Fabregas Denilson Ramsey – Nasri Eduardo Arshavin.  Emmanuel Eboue and Tomas Rosicky will also be in contention to start.

Finally, I found out yesterday I’ll be attending Germany vs Ghana in next summer’s World Cup, as well as three as-yet-undetermined fixtures.  I’ll be sure to keep an eye on Stephen Appiah, who will doubtless be linked to us despite being unemployed for the best part of two years.

Come On You Reds.
