In the last 24 hours, I have tried to write two blogs and deleted them both.
The first was about our goal keepeing situation. How we are going to get rid of 4 keepers this summer.
With Ryan Huddart and Hugo Keto already out the door, Emiliano Martinez will surely leave us this summer. He is just 6 months younger than Bernd Leno…
It is also impossible to keep both David Ospina and Petr Cech. My bet is the Columbian will leave.
The second blog was about Miguel Layun – the 30-year-old Mexico right back.
Arsenal are surely not interested in him, and any link is probably from the agent in the hope of generating interest elsewhere – or pushing through a deal with Sevilla.
Deals for Sokratis and Lucas Torreira are verging on completion. Maybe we should all just stop blogging and writing articles for a week or so, let those deals go through, and then start talking about the actual football.
Pre-season starts on July 14th with a trip to Boreham Wood. Should be a good day out in North-West London (is the Wood in NW London?).
By that time, we should be starting to see the shape of the squad. It will be the eve of the World Cup Final and we would have signed a couple more, sold a couple more and still probably be moaning about stuff.
Enjoy the World Cup.
