Today’s post is going to be a hasty one. I watched the Holland game last night, and barring some sort of mathematical miricle, it looks as if Robin will be on his way home a lot earlier than expected. He scored an absolute belter last night, but during the tournament he has looked a little off his prolific best. The Dutch now need to win their final game with Portugal, and hope Denmark lose to the impressive Germans. Should that occur, then it’ll be down to goal difference between the sides on equal points – it all gets rather confusing.
The short of it is; he’s more than likely to be headed home by the end of the week, and that means the club can do something about sorting his contract out. I’m not one who sees any reason for all this crap about “waiting for the Euros to finish”. The quicker we reach a solution, the better. I truly hope he stays, but if he chooses to ply his trade elsewhere; no hard feelings, sell him and move on to somebody else we can get in before pre-season.
In other news regarding the club, an article on Arseblog’s news has some interesting quotes attributed to Ivan Gazidis:
“We added an important player in Podolski and we will have the return of Jack Wilshere this year, which will be a big boost for the team.
“We are also talking to people in this summer’s transfer market, I think there will be something exciting for our fans to be happy about.
“We want to do business carefully. We don’t have to add many players, but we have to be very selective. The players we add must bring something to the team.
“That’s what Wenger is doing and he’s done a good job over the year to identify special talent. I am sure he will do it again.”
Something exciting, eh? My, my… what a tantalising choice of words. With the deal for Giroud looking very likely, things appear to be heading our way in the transfer market. We’ve made one solid and promising addition in Podolski, and the French striker looks to be another welcome incoming. It will be interesting to see just how exciting things are going to get.
Last night, as I was enjoy a delicious bowl of rice pudding, Sky Sports began to break the news of Harry Redknapp and Rosie’s departure from Spurs. Of course, I can’t stand the wrinkly-faced, tax-evading douchebag, but I will miss him at the helm of our grubby neighbours. Watching his complete ineptitude and tactical blunders under pressure has been an absolute pleasure. Goes to show just how over-rated one man truly is.
And to think; there was supposed to be some huge shift of power in North London. Didn’t turn out that way, did it? I wonder what happened to those mugs and their ‘Mind the Gap’ t-shirts…
That’s all for today, folks. Thanks for taking a moment to read. Leave me a comment below with a few of your own thoughts.
