Bradesque7’s Weekly Round Up

Hello and welcome to this week’s news round up.

First up is transfer activity. Andre Santos has moved back into his parents’ basement after his travels across Europe ended in tears. Having found himself in trouble with the police in London, he is believed to be “grounded for a year”. Santos will only be allowed out for football practice with local side Gremio.

santos gremioArsenal player of the month award was given out this month to Le Flop himself, Olivier Giroud. This was a typically kind gesture from the Arsenal faithful to rally around a player who is failing so miserably. We can only hope that the manager will listen to the experts when buying players in future.

Giroud EA POTM Jan 2013The goal of the month award for January went to Lukas Podolski. There were several strong contenders such as the Gibbs volley against Swansea or the fantastic team goal against West Ham which was finished off by Cazorla. The fans have opted for Podolski’s, frankly dangerous, hammer-blow from distance.


Sunderland away was the game on Saturday and Arsenal had several thousand chances to let us have that extra year on our lives back. Santi Cazorla got the only goal in a game where we could have romped home. Chances were spurned and tension built but Arsenal hung on to claim the three points. One has to feel for the Sunderland players as they faced the Wenger’s hatchet men in a game that saw the Gunners throw themselves to the ground and cheat their way to three points. One of the Arsenal assassins actually had himself sent off on two counts of assault. The FA must surely clamp down.

Arsene Wenger has called for blood testing to be introduced to the English game. This comes in the wake of allegations made about Spanish Doctor Fuentes who has been juicing Spanish athletes since Pep was a lad. Some resistance is expected as certain Stoke players are said to be reluctant to reveal their DNA code.

Bacary Sagna spoke to Arsenal player about returning the balance to our defence this week. Perhaps not the wisest choice of words, considering how Liverpool’s first goal came about last week. It has been decided that Sagna is past his best and it’s hard to see how he can come back from an error like that. Fortunately, the vastly superior Jenkinson was on hand to take over the right-back spot for the Sunderland game. There is no doubt that Sagna would have blown it for us.

So next we have what might become known as the meerkat’s derby as Blackburn Rovers visit for the FA Cup tie next weekend. There will be stowaways on the bus and they will be furry. Watch out Gooners, they bite!

That is all from me for another week, thank you for reading.
Up the Arsenal.

  28. what a fantastic game at the bernabeu….anyone note how none of the two had an attacking plan..they were both with static midfield both looking to play contra attack against eachother…. in organised defences.. madrid would win ball in midfield and go for contra 3 against 7 ..it never worked…then you had utd playing like stoke ..bless them millions spent.. evra;s footing/balance/anticipation/marking/jumping for ronaldo’s equaliser was world class. the other game was the one. shaktar – dortmund…both very good…great european football match, lucescu vs klopp…srna d.cousta goetze lewadovski … top top quality.
