Whilst I moaned constantly about International friendlies yesterday, today I feel hugely proud of our lad Jack Wilshere, England v Brazil and he was the stand out. I don’t think anyone would have picked anyone else. Theo also did well and it was also all him for the second and winning goal. Still I feel justified when Walcott was battered for most of the first half, Rambo got injured before playing, and Koscielny went off injured. That’s just for starters!
Giroud has been talking himself up. Good lad! Someone needs to. I think he’s done well and in the last couple of months really has had an impact on matches. Giroud has been saying he’s better than our former striker/money grabber, apparently all the woman say yes to Olivier too. Just got to make sure he doesn’t go down the Bendtner route……….
A couple of bits of gossip, one deal I’m sure we will push is Etienne Capoue, we’ve been linked with him for a while now and he’d be a typical Wenger capture. He plays holding mid or centre back so would fit what we need and would be around our famous £10Mil mark. There’s also been a lot of chat about Mamadou Sakho who is said to be unhappy at PSG. Sakho plays centre half and is down the pecking order under Ancelotti. The other link is again surround Barca sub David Villa, with Arsenal still linked, it could come down to whether Falcao stays at Ateltico, apparently the Spanish side would be favourite for his signature. They certainly have the cash, Falcao is worth a fortune, but maybe Villa fancies a couple of years in the cold and wet of Shenley. Change of scene and all that!
That my friends is about that, hopefully tomorrow Fraz can deliver you a Blogfest of entertainment!
