Ahem! I’m in a bit of a rush today so only 3 pieces of journalistic art caught my attention. Uncle Wenger has bestowed the Arsenal Knighthood on OG (Oliver Giroud) saying:
“I bought him because he’s a real centre forward and he is an intelligent player…I feel he has qualities that are needed in our squad…”
I remember this same encouragement and praise was heaped on RVP when the going was rosy and sunny. RVP seemed so passionate about Arsenal, about the team, about the fans, about us…or was he? It hurts me when I see pictures like this, I feel Wenger and us were betrayed and lied to by RVP…
Just look at the pure emotion on Uncle Wenger’s face.
Or was RVP just in the moment?
We’ll never know. All I ask Wenger to do now is sell RVP and use the revenue to strengthen our back-end because that’s our Achilles heel; that’s where we’re weakest.

Which brings me to the next piece of news…
MANCHESTER UNITED AND THEIR INTEREST IN ROBIN
Although I’m an advocate for the sale of RVP while we can still get something substantial for him, I have my reservations as to who the buyer should be. You see, Cameron and the rest of ’Ol England would be all right with it if we sold some nuclear science technology to hmm…,let’s say Trinidad and Tobago, no harm helping a developing country along aye? But err…would it be all right if we sold to Bin Laden? That’s like shooting ourselves in the foot. And, that’s exactly what we’ll be doing if we sell RVP to Man-U.
Can I stand RVP in a Man-U shirt? Never!
Oh, and by the way, all this talk about Wenger wanting to keep RVP, I think it’s best we let him go or else we’ll lose at both ends. Having an unsettled/unhappy player will give you little or no results on the pitch, and then you get to lose him on a free? C’mon!
THE POLITICALLY RANDOM THOUGHTS OF LUIZ SUAREZ
Personally, I think the dude wanted a piece of the action. I’m sure he figured that since everyone else seemed to be in the news, he could as well find elbow room or force his way in. I had this scene in my head about what must have given rise to his theory:
Luiz is lazily watching BBC Sports on his 65 inch Sony Smart screen TV…
Luiz: (Thinking) Hmm…Everyone seems to be in the news these days. Rooney’s been said to understand only Scottish. Terry’s leaving the headlines bloody, RVP’s leaving Arsenal fans livid; A.Cole, The Ferdinand boys, Forlan even lil’ Andy are all splattering the pages of newspapers…I need to do something about this!
Maybe I should tell Brendan that I will leave Liverpool if they don’t pay me £300,000 a week after tax on income, petrol, water, electricity, decorating and clothing…. or, I could smash my Ferrari into Harrods and maybe claim I was actually sold one without brakes…Naaaah
Aha! I could bring up that thing between me and Evra again and claim that Manchester United connived with the political powers that be to render my services to Liverpool useless. I figure I can say that I was framed and suspended so that I wouldn’t help Liverpool win the Championship and qualify for the UEFA Champions League… That would prove interesting! Now, what was it that happened between me and Evra again…
