Arsene confirms Squillaci is a Gooner!

August 26, 2010 by   Filed under: Arsenal FC, Transfers

I think everyone thought Sebastien Squillaci was going to be announced as Arsenal player last Monday, that did’t happen as we all know.Tuesday went by and we still didn’t know if he signed on the dotted line or not. Yesterday I have heard that he went back to Spain, apparently to sort out few things as he flew straight back to London. It’s now 17:15 and there is still no confirmation on Now I would have thought it would be definitely announced today after Arsene’s press conference, nope I was wrong again. Maybe they are up to something and will reveal two signings at once as this is the only reason I think why it would be held up, he will be taking part in training tomorrow so why not announce it? Either way we have just aquired a very EXPERIENCED defender, for life I never really seen him play so I will hold my judgment for later. I’m glad we got another CB we definitely needed one. It usually goes without saying that Arsene knows best and I’m truly behind him on this one he seems to think very highly of him as well:

“We needed a centre-back of quality and experience if possible, and at the right price – he was all of that.

“He is a real defender and is good in the one against one, good in the air, and can score goals on set-pieces as well.

“I believe he will be suited to the English game.

“He will train with us tomorrow morning, but will not be involved on Saturday.”

If we could get another DM and a Goalkeeper I would be very happy, somehow I can only see us buying another field player not a keeper we have Almunia and Fabianski and I think we have to get behind them and perhaps with that their confidence levels will improve.

We face a tough game against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday early kick off, this will be stern test for Koscielny as we all know what to expect from Fat Sam’s tactics it will be rough and tough, northing less. We have Denilson back in the squad so it’s looking better already on the injuries front. Arshavin is talking about revenge and I like that attitude from the little Russian, revenge is sweet and come on lads let’s thrash them at least 4:0. For those going to the game have a great trip, I will be watching this from my own home and I can’t wait.

On behalf of every Gooner I would like to welcome Sebastien Squillaci to Arsenal FC!

News that has just come in, from the Champions League draw we are in Group H alongside, Shakhtar Donetsk, Braga and FK Partizan. I know pundits have already said we have the easiest group but I tell you none of those teams can be taken for granted, they have made it this far for a reason, Braga beat Seville and that will give an indication they mean business, still I believe we should top this group.

That’s all from me, let’s have another goal feast on Saturday!

    Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored at work so I decided to check out your site
    on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the knowledge you provide here and can’t
    wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked
    at how fast your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just
    3G .. Anyways, good blog!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this matter to be actually something that I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.

    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    May I simply say what a comfort to find someone who
    genuinely understands what they’re talking about over the internet.
    You certainly know how to bring a problem to light and make it
    important. A lot more people need to look at this and understand this side of your story.
    I can’t believe you aren’t more popular because you certainly possess the gift.

    I think a lot of criticism toardws Adebayor and especially Bendtner this season has been very harsh.As much as i can completely understand the gripe that gooners have with both players, i think it is slightly unfair.Adebayor has been a fucking twat at times, and has definitely not played at the standard that his salary justifies. But at the same time, i don’t think he has been getting the support on the pitch that he needs, and has been left totally isolated at times, and unfortunately he is not capable of playing the lone striker role. It reminds me in a way of schevchenko, at AC Milan, he had balls coming in from everywhere for him to knock in, at chelsea, he had none of this. The same goes for Ade, give him enough supply and support and he will deliver, leave him isolated and he will end up offside for the whole fucking game.As for bendtner, 15 goals in a season where he started less than 25 games, his return is better than Tevez, and he works fucking hard whenever he is on the pitch, i want to see more of him next year, his play is direct, he know what he wants, and he never rests on his laurels.We do need a good Dm, not that Denilson isn’t good enough, but he is inexperienced. he showed glimpses of brilliance last year, but he needs a sold head to calm him down, teach him a few things about positioning, so that in 2 years time he will be better than flamini. If we did continue with him as our Dm though, i really wouldn’t be that worried.We need to give this team more support, it is no wonder that they underachieve when they are bood and run down by their own fans, it’s just nt fair.I am in no way saying our team is perfect, it does need a few more level heads to lead this team, but i don’t think we are anywhere near as fucked as many “gooners” are making us out to be
