Transfer Talk

Arsenal and Man United both fancy the same German…

Ozil – wants out

Mesut Ozil 

When you’re attempting to land a new job, it’s important to talk a big game – but not too big.

Keep it within the realms of actual possibility. You probably can’t type 400 words/minute, the artist formerly know as The Artist Formerly Known as Prince isn’t a fan of YOUR music, and – if you happen to be Kenny Huang – you’re not going to buy Lionel Messi as your first order of business.

A good start would be to keep hold of Torres.

Anyway, here’s what else we know, thanks to the likes of The Sun, The Daily Star, The Mirror, The Daily Mail, and the rest…

In as fierce a rivalry as has been seen since Brandy and Monica had an RnB face-off about who was the true recipient of a young philanderer’s feelings and who was just “a piece of ass”, Man United and Arsenal are both keen to snaffle Mesut Ozil from Werder Bremen.

The word on the street is that Ozil has asked his club to reduce their asking price of £16million, being that he only has one year left on his contract, and Fergie and Wenger are lurking in the shadows, waiting to pounce.

They would be wise to keep an eye out for Jose Mourinho however. Apparently he’s been chatting up Ozil’s mum on email. Metaphorically speaking.

All of which leads seamlessly to the sudden/surprising inclusion of this aforementioned pop song, starring Brandy as Sir Alex Ferguson, and Monica as Arsene Wenger:

In other hot North/South news, current Fulham manager Mark Hughes is either stuck on loop or completely out of ideas, as he follows his interest in Craig Bellamy with a potential bid for Roque Santa Cruz. Who next, Mark? Robbie Savage?

And in spiraling popularity news, Carlton Cole – once linked with Liverpool and Arsenal – is now wanted by Stoke. 

In two word transfer news:

Diarra, United.

Ramires, Chelsea.

And four word news:

Dos Santos, Huntelaar, swap.

That is all.

    I propose that Arsenal fans World wide post letters once a week for the next four weeks to UEFA & FIFA complaining about Barcelona FC’s ‘tapping up’ of Cesc Fabregas. Also post a letter just once to Arsenal FC requesting that they formally complain to UEFA & FIFA. I have drawn up 3 template letters that I will email to willing participants. All you need to do is type in your own Name & Address before printing off & posting. Momentum will be boosted by you forwarding the email to every one of your Arsenal FC fan family & friends, encouraging them to participate.
    Please see …. http://www.goonerettesonline.co.uk/452/other/an-overview-of-the-cesc-saga-time-for-the-fans-to-bite-back/#more-452
    The aim of repetitive letters is to create an Admin headache for UEFA & FIFA with thousands of letters received from all over the world & display the strength of feeling from Arsenal FC fans. The purpose of the single letter to Arsenal FC is again to display the strength of feeling from us fans.
    My email address for this campaign from where I will email you the letter templates is …….. ArsenalFansHateBarcelonaFC@gmail.com
