Moving to a new place can be very stressful but when your move to a new house affects some certain things it becomes a cause for concern. It’s quite unfortunate to see that my ISP isn’t working in my new place and plans are in place to get a new one.
In my absence, nothing much has been happening in the transfer market and when you think about the fact that over £800m was spent by English clubs last summer, it’s quite expected that the business in this Window will be minimal. Manchester City was having none of that as they bolstered their attacking options with the purchase of Ivorian powerhouse, Wilfried Bony for £28m. It also meant that the club had spent £294m on 12 strikers since the Arab folks came to town in 2008.
At Arsenal, talk of the signature of teenage sensation, Kryztian Bielik is gathering momentum and he might go straight into the first team especially with the news that Arsenal skipper, Mikel Arteta, is set to face a lengthy spell on the sidelines following complications in his calf injury. In Arteta’s absence, Mathieu Flamini has done okay to hold the fort but Francis Coquelin has been a revelation since his recall from loan. With Arteta ‘s contract expiring this summer, it would be interesting to see how the club would handle his situation. Yes, he’s reaching his twilight years but he’s a player Wenger trusts and I really hope he stays for an extra season or two.
On Matt Debuchy, the fullback has gone through surgery to fix his dislocated shoulder / broken collar bone and will be out for three months. It’s really bad to see how those injury spirits that ravaged Sagna are taking their pound of flesh from Debuchy. Marko Arnautovic the Skillful Orc has gone on Facebook to give his apologies but Orcs will always be Orcs.
I’d keep you updated on their injury situation and other transfer chit chat in the coming days.
