The Transfer Window

For a change from the kind of poetry I normally write, I decided to do another one about the Arsenal. If you haven’t seen my first (and probably better) effort at poetry about Arsenal, take a look at my poem on the first 5-2 that i wrote last October HERE

We start this off in no-mans land,
Where hours trickle like hourglass sand,
The quietness has some of us fearing the worst
Where every single day feels like August 31st,

Some get so stressed, they feel physical pain,
Fearing we may lose our stars is the bane,
For the ones we covet, they fear the persuasion of cash
But one good signing and negativity is gone in a flash

Seeing us do “nothing”, some cannot abide,
They scream “Sack Wenger, cast him aside”
some of us are accused of “blind faith and madness”
but expecting Messi will lead to disappointment and sadness

The transfer window is descending quickly
They way it contorts us is terribly sickly
Each day a new “In the Know” trumpets his horn
We are left hoping he’s not another Fairthorne

Eagerly clinging to every rumour and whisper,
Each new piece of news is a little bit crisper,
Caught-offside spin their merry tales,
While ITKs refer to top secret emails.

Don’t be desperate for the sulia linked tidbit
You’re lining the pockets of those spouting bullshit,
yet for some, not seeing Arsenal is the real sorrow
Fear not, the season is but 78 days from the morrow

The yearning for Cesc made twitter get hectic,
But if he goes to United, they’d be apoplectic,
Strangely people are still not over Mata or M’Vila,
But hey, that new French kid might just be killa,

Every single day, twitter is abuzz about a rumour,
a certain Zef Kolombi, was a terrific bit of humour,
Some players have medicals lasting forever,
suggesting we sign Barton or Samba is not very clever.

Some crazy things happen when the window is ajar,
like Peter Odemwingie, driving to QPR
Pardew the patriot will brush up on his French
and City will buy someone to keep Nasri on the bench

Liverpool will probably pay yet another ridiculous fee,
while the Arsenal sign a whizkid on the cheap or for free,
Hughes and Stoke will spend lots yet still stumble,
While Spurs will dream big, but lose Bale and then crumble

What transfer window is complete without Arry Redknapp,
Everyone’s a trrfic player he tried to sign once but Snap!
Sky will show him often in the window of his 4 wheeler
As he declares “Fack off, I ain’t no Wheeler Dealer”

Goal dot com and others publish “exclusive” news,
Desperate for followers, hits, clicks and views,
Until right at the end of it all you see Jim White
As you look back and see if summer was great or shite

A big “thank you” to Daniel (@thedanielcowan) for helping me edit this piece

  7. you are very good at taking the piss out of our enemies. well done. please teach me to do it so subtle cause i deliver it with a brutality that leads to deadends..hehe..i just cant do it wihtout the swearing and adding a bit of filth for special effect…

    i was talking with this arsenal person in the club level…he was with suit and everything i felt i was in bank city , i told him i wasnt there to buy shares or anything , just to check for tickets….he told me to move fast cause most will gone by end of mid june..i told him to deny those cunts their tickets because all they do is boo and moan..he turned to me and said ” well yes our supporters cna be quite passionate” ..i laughed ..they are most kind ..they will take the hits..the plan is more important and they know it….if only some in the stands did too…

  11. anicol you are very brave dealing with those muppets dukey and bill. you are a hero. they want to blame someone. they cant accept things as they are. they always want to find the one to fault. as an arsenal fan they embarass me 100%.

    even if arsene decided not to spend money that was there he did it in good faith and did it to protect arsenal in the long run, why cant they get it?

    besides and as fergie has said ( and i clearly remember the bunch of aclf loving fergie) wenger could run a poker school in govan. so then , would a poker player and his limited stack go head to head all in against three or four players who have a bigger stack than him? not if youre a professional. only if you are stupid. he will grind it out for a while and hit when the time is right. its not like he was holding 4 of a kind between 2007-2013 and refused to call or raise ..is it? he was trying to beat the other guys flushs and starights and foul houses with his pair and sets and lots of bluffing.

  15. H13, I doubt very much CatalanCesc will return. His release clause is said to be >100m!
    I’d focus on the more “finite”….

    like Grenier (who i just viewed on youtube)…OOOH!
    Perfect AW player.
    Titilates a tad greater than Jovetic.

    I say aye.

  16. 100m release clause? jeez…. what if we we send jack and aaron there and they force an arsenal shirt on him talking about dna…?

  17. Adam ,I believe we have a 25 million buy back. 100 million release clause only means they must accept that offer if Cesc wants to go.The club can still consider offers below that.

  18. Lol Hunter Dukey Bill JJ are my mission – believers whose faith has been tested and in need of direction

    On Cesc if he really is on his way out there is no question at all whatsoever of a return to us

    Both Manchester clubs would be fucking mad not to try to sign him

  20. It would be money well spent in my view for either of them – Citeh could probably unload one or two of their two bob failures to spread the cost – probably cash from Manyoo but they have a greater need

  23. rooney can go to alaska too if he likes ..wont be missed. but if cesc is getting homesick im sure arsene will like to take some revenge from rossel and smile to the catalans sinking in debt while throwing them a rope of say 3 million for cesc..no make it 1 million…

  25. CESC will not go to manure.. Bet your bottom dollar on it. He won’t come back to ARSENAL either. This team has changed and moved on. He made his bed, needs to lay in it now. For good or bad. ARSENAL is not a yoyo . We can’t change direction at the whim of any player. No matter how special.
