Today’s post will be short. I’ve just got home from an exhausting shift, and I’m writing for the morning as I’ll have no time to do so when I wake up. That always confuses me; writing in the present tense when I’m talking to you from the past.
Much of what has crossed my path in news form is wildly contradictory, spurious and downright silly. With Carlos Tevez jetting off to the sunnier climes of Turin, some think the way for Higuain’s move is clear. Others – the bitter swines! – assume Manchester City are waiting to swoop for the Argentinian forward now they’ve cleared a little squad space.
One minute it’s a certainty, the next the whole thing is thrown into doubt.
Waiting for something to happen can be maddening if you allow it to consume your every thought. Like I’m sure you have, I’ve grown quite fond of the idea of ‘The Hig’ (still don’t like that) becoming a Gooner. Every time there’s a little cold water poured onto proceedings, a little part of my brain (the stupid part) begins to get upset.
Thankfully, the sensible part soon kicks into gear. Regardless of how enamoured we may be by the notion, it is absolutely and utterly beyond our control. Pining for the arrival of one particular player is essentially a waste of time. No one player will ever be bigger than the Club we love, and no one player can bring us the triumph we crave by themselves.
It’s possible we may not sign Higuain, and that will be a shame. But it will be anything but disastrous. It could be a missed opportunity or a mistake, but nothing with lasting impact. There is always another waiting around the corner, and perhaps that mysterious individual is a better fit for Arsenal.
We just can’t know.
See – I told you today’s post would be short. It’s a bit blathery, and all…
I’m really bloody tired and I’m not in my best writing mindset. I think I’ll leave a question for you all to get your teeth into, one that might distract from the ineptitude of today’s entry:
If we don’t get Higuain, who would be the player we should go after? The comment await your thoughts below, and I look forward to reading a few.
As always: thanks for reading, you beautiful bastards.
