Mmmmmh M’Vila

9 05 2012

 According to T’internet and the tabloids Arsenal have agreed a club record fee in excess of £16 million for very highly rated French international Yann M’vila.

 Anyone who has stuck their head out from under a rock in recent seasons will have heard the rumours that we were interested in/were going to sign/were trying to tempt with hookers the 21 year old enforcer who currently plys his trade in ligue 1 with Rennes.

 This time though things seem a bit more promising than the usual scuttlebutt. The normally reliable French football specialist Julien Laurens, has claimed both on Twitter and Le Parisien that M’Vila has agreed a four year deal to bring him to the Emirates.

Normally I try not to get excited about possible signings as year in year out we see ourselves linked with everyone and their dog. But this is one signing that I think would show a real statement of intent from the club.

Not only is M’Vila a very “Wengeresque” signing but he would offer genuine competition for Alex Song and coupled with the early capture of Lukas Podolski would show a real statement of intent which may well help swing the decisions of RVP and Walcott when it comes to signing on the dotted line.

Fingers crossed that some serious lessons have been learnt from last Summer’s business dealings and that this Summer will have less of a resemblance to a re-run of Supermarket Sweep.





Chu Young park completes Arsenal move

30 08 2011

Today sees the official arrival of South Korea captain, Chu Young Park, from Monaco.

If rumour is to be believed the 26 year old striker walked out of a medical with Ligue 1 champions Lille in order to board a flight to London and sign for the Gunners on a 4 year contract.

There is some confusion floating around as to whether or not he will be eligible during the entire duration of his stay at the Emirates as he may possibly have to serve 2 years national service. It is key to point out however that certain prolific South Korean sportsmen have been given exemptions in recent years.

 In an announcement earlier on today Park had these words to say regarding his move ‎”In my opinion this is a great club, now I have to show what I can do on the pitch. I will do my best, I will never give up, I will show heart, I will give everything and I hope [the fans] will support me.”

Park will wear the currently vacant number 9 jersey and will go by his preferred name of Ju Young Park.
