Sources say, linked to, Gazidis on flight to, sister-in-law confirms…… yip, transfer season, but hey it’s January 12 and I hear so little noise. What’s up?
Well, I like to think it’s crazy busy out there, and that my recent internetless period has merely kept me out of the loop, but peering around I’m not sure that is the case. A Greek defender has arrived, and Francis Coquelin has cleared off, and of course we’re left with the inevitable whispers about Mesut and Sanchez. The latter in particular due to the way the last minutes of the summer merrygoround ended.
To be honest, I have no idea what parameters we’re operating within regarding players being cup tied (Europa/CL?), movement domestically/abroad and so on.
Arsenally speaking, things have changed since the last window. We’ve witnessed the reappearance of Jack and the epic progress of Maitland Niles. We all know every single position could be improved upon, but equally, we all realise we’re not Real Madrid so what do we expect.
I think, once again, much will hinge on the Sanchez situation and one would assume Arsene sees the departure of Coquelin as leaving us thin in the defensive midfield position, or has he already pencilled someone in? Maitland Niles?
My personal thoughts on the window’s outcome? Nothing. Not sure why, but I have this gut feeling things won’t pan out for Sanchez the way he wants.
This is an incredibly dull window round up. I hope some of you can add some fizz and froth.
