Santi Cazorla OUT
It has been reported that Santi Cazorla’s injury will keep him out for another 12 months. It will be a sad end to a good Arsenal career.
Earlier this year, I questioned whether it would be a good idea to renew Cazorla’s contract for another 12 months.
He has had an awful 24 months with injury, and looked set to be ruled out till Christmas. He has now potentially been ruled out until the end of the season. This means Arsenal have basically chucked money away.
Interestingly, a lot of those attacking my opinion when I said we should not renew often criticise Arsenal for giving contracts to the likes of Abou Diaby and Tomas Rosicky in the past, but they were happy to renew Cazorla’s.
A sad end to a career.
Wojciech Szczesny STAYs
It all seems to have gone a bit quiet surrounding Wojciech Szczesny and Juventus.
Early summer interest does not seem to have materialised into a strong transfer bid.
With Szczensy’s contract set to run out in 12 months, Juventus know that they can put the transfer to one side and secure the Polish keeper on a pre-contract deal in 6 months. With Buffon not set to retire until next season, they are not pushed to get in a number 1.
Meanwhile, at Arsenal, a move for Jordan Pickford did not happen, and David Ospina still looks set to leave. This would leave Arsenal with no senior Number 2 if Szczesny also leaves.
Putting 2 and 2 together and getting 5, it would not surprise me if Szczesny is at Arsenal next year, as number 2, before moving to Juventus on a free transfer in the summer of 2018.
Attention seeking ITKs
So I am seeing attention seeking Vloggers and Bloggers becoming attention seeking ‘in the knows’ all because the miss the attention during the off season.
The reality is they are attention seeking w*nkers.
No one knows what Arsenal are doing. Arsene Wenger does not know what Arsenal are doing.
People just guess. They hope to get it right every now again. Sadly there are people out there so desperate for information that they will believe anything that is said. They elevate these saddos and play to their ego’s by asking for updates.
We always just give our opinion. Like in Szczesny above. It is our opinion he is staying. We are not privy to anything.
Ignore the white noise. Ignore the attention seekers. Do not give them the air the demand and they will suffocate.
