I was hopeful that today was the day that we had finally signed Nasri, Apparently today is the start of the new tax year in France and there was a number of reports on Arsenal blogs saying that today would be the magic day. But nothing!!!
This transfer has proved a number of things. (1) The importance of David Dein at the club, IF he was still around this transfer would have been done and dusted a very long time ago. (2) Never believe anything thats apparently comes from a ” source ” some many people have been put to shame with utter crap. (3) Wenger should never speak about a player to the press before it has been 100% confirmed that he has signed. (4) Dont believe anything until its on Arsenal.com
Getting back to this “Transfer” of Nasri, I have no idea what is taking so long? A few weeks ago Nasri confirmed that the deal was 99% done. Then a few days later Wenger spoke about a small problem with the players wages? Then Wenger put a deadline on the deal saying ” it needed to be done before the start of the euro championships” Of course the deal didn’t happen, But then Wenger spoke about his hope that the deal would happen after the championships? Then the Nasri website confirmed the transfer only to remove it a few hrs later. Now the 1st of july story that has now passed. Im starting to think this deal is never going to happen and we are going to see a type of Baptista & Ribery summers.
Another thing I dont understand is that on the 10th May Wenger was interview on Arsenal.com and said
“I know what I want and I am very confident,” said Wenger.
“I hope to turn that around in the next two or three weeks. They (fans) should be re-assured by what they see.
“It would be better to buy someone who has played in England because they are less risky, but it costs more money if they are from The Premier League,” he went on.
“Maybe I will try to do both.”
That was on the 10th May? Almost 8 weeks ago? What is the point in getting our hopes up about new (re-assured) signings? By this did he man the signing of a few 17 and 15 year olds and a player called Bischoff? What a shambles we have become. Players like Flamini allowed to leave on a free. Adebayor coming out demanding £120k aweek or he is off. Hleb moaning about life in London and his love for Italian Ice cream.
We have become a laughing stock, Even the scum down the road have managed to sign Modric, Dos Santos and Gomez.
There use to be a saying ” We do things the Arsenal way ” That use to mean in a different class, now it means 2nd rate.
Utter garbage, Sort this crap out Arsenal FFS
