Sturridge to Bolton, Melo to Arsenal, and other stuff

The shoes on her feet – she bought ‘em


Everyone’s second favourite Saturday has FINALLY spoken about her burning ‘like’ for Wayne Bridge – but Frankie Sandford is determined not to be labelled a grotty gold-diggin’ WAG. She said:

“Don’t call me a WAG! I’m not a typical WAG at all. I hate that phrase.

“I know people are going to say that about me, but, hey, at the end of the day, I’ve been working since I was 12 when I was with S Club Juniors so I don’t need to rely on any man.”

You go girl! In other exciting news, Charlie Sheen has joined Twitter – what could possibly go wrong?

In other less exciting, but actually relevant news, the Metro reckon Daniel Sturridge will be staying at Bolton next season on a permanent deal. The 21-year old loves being able to run around at the Reebok and totally loves that lovely Owen Coyle. He gushed:

“I’m trying to work hard and the manager has instilled a lot of confidence since I have been here and let me play football the way I like to play it. I get to express myself on the pitch and go out there with no fear.”

He’s definitely going back to Chelsea though.

The new mouthpiece of Keys and Gray, talkSPORT, reckon Arsene Wenger is after Brazilian defensive midfielder Felipe Melo, with Denilson going in the other direction.

What will the Gunners do with Alex Song though? He’s well good at holding his position and protecting the defence…

Less sarcastically, The Daily Mail thinks Barcelona bench-warmer Javier Mascherano will be heading to Juventus in the summer.

    What Wenger will do with Alex Song is finally learn to rotate his squad (I know you were being funny, but our lack of proper like-for-like cover in key positions is depressing…)

    Agreed, Fourstar.

    I try not to talk about serious-type-football-stuff if possible, but here we go…

    There were plenty of Arsenal fans in the pub I watched the final in on Sunday and through the howls of anguish, the murmers about ‘Birmingham’s bench being better than ours’ could be clearly heard.

    I do think it’s a BIT of a myth that you need a massive squad to do well, but – like you said – good players in key positions for Arsenal are rather thin on the ground.

    Thanks Richard – I don’t really mean a massive squad (if I remember rightly we actually have one of the bigger squads, even with those out on loan) but I simply don’t see a genuine replacement in each position.

    I know it’s unreasonable to expect Cesc#2, Jack#2, or RvP#2 but our second string always feels somewhat lacking.

    You almost had my hopes up then, til I realised the Sturridge story was in the Metro.

    Considering how he’s been spanking them in — we’d be lucky to get him on loan for another season.

    In Arsene you trust. LOL!
