BBC Usmanov propaganda disgraceful + Eboue exit, Huntelaar arrival?

In Arsenal FC on July 26, 2009 by Highbury N5 Editor

Evening all,

one would expect the BBC to always give a balanced view on things, especially after it prides itself on so called impartiality. So when an interview is conducted with an associate of Alisher Usmanov, and also with someone with no standing in the game, you would expect them to seek some sort of second opinion, maybe from the football club in question?

As first reported by Goonerholic, this morning David Davies of Sportsweek on Radio 5 Live conducted what was obviously a pre-planned and a seriously lightweight interview with Usmanov’s right hand man, Farhad Moshiri. The ‘holic goes into the interview in more detail and also discusses the links between Davies and David Dein.

Quite frankly, I expect better from Britain’s primary news source.

Onto the usual Sunday rumours. Its being reported by the serial bullshitters Marca that Klaas Huntelaar has been the subject of a 15 million bid by us. Quite frankly I do not rate Huntelaar as highly as quite a few other people do, I think he is a very good player but is not proven enough to be the ‘world class’ player people portray him to be. He is hardly proven outside Holland and has a good goalscoring record for a national team that has some of the most creative attacking players on this planet.

When Madrid brought him for 20 odd million I thought they were paying way over the odds, at around 12 million I would be happy to take a punt on the guy but 15 million is too much money to risk when we have such more obvious need for defensive minded players.

This season we also have to put a certain amount of faith in the likes of Theo Walcott and Carlos Vela who both have points to prove and futures to seal. Out of the two of them, Vela is the more naturally talented, but Walcott has the riproaring pace we have really been in need of since Henry left.

Splashing out 15 million, which is a hell of a lot of money for a club like Arsenal, just does not make sense with the other options we have, the likes of Eduardo, Bendtner and van Persie are all capable of over 15 goals a season each. Eduardo has been building up his fitness since last season to prevent any more setbacks and Bendtner has shown he has the eye for an important match-winning goal already.

There is also quite a bit more speculation over the future of Emmanuel Eboue, there has been confirmed interest Fiorentina’s end but at the end of the day it will be Eboue’s choice to stay or go. I think it would be a big help if we keep him, he is a key member of the squad though many people will disagree with me. He is our only recognised right back cover whilst also being able to fill in at left back and on the right side of midfield.

In previous years Wenger has repeatedly stated the most important thing to do in a summer is keep hold of as many players as possible as not to disrupt the relationship between the lads, another departure might just start to give a few players twitchy arses, especially if we are a player down on last season with two players having left to the one arrival.

Right I think thats about it.

More tomorrow.

  1. Vela has riproaring pace too. See the goal he set up for simpson against wigan and the chip goal. Hes stronger than walcott too. A better player by a million miles.

  2. Fornando Torres was not a world class striker before he came to England Klaas Huntelaar would have the same impact its just what we need and show other clubs we mean business

  3. huntelaar should be coming to arsenal its been reported in spain news and english news papers and websites

  4. What like Obafemi Martins, Chamakh and god knows who else have been reported to be joining us?

    99.99% of the stuff written is bollocks.

  5. we don’y need huntellar while we have arshavin

  6. think if were going to give the younger lads a chance then why are we in such need of a dm, song grew in stature last season and think he’ll prove to be a great player, i also really like denilson, there two of the players very under rated at the emerites

  7. THANKS YOUR G O D… Get Klaas Huntelaar and stop wasting time on him wenger… We need him

  8. let,s be realistic without signing a strong defencive medfeilder+ a proven striker
    we are not going to win any thing.

  9. i don’t think edwardo is fit enough to rely on. bendler is ok but needs time to improve his finishing so get hantelaar sooner rather than later,. gunner forever

  10. You’re a complete twat if you want to rely on Bendtner instead of spending an extra 3 million on Huntelaar! We would still have another fifteen million. Twat.

  11. I trust the Muslim more than the Yankee yid.

  12. I was under the impression that we had the money for a dm anyway, even before adebayors sale, so there’s no reason that we can’t buy both. When you consider that van persie has never had an injury free season and eduardo has fitness doubts, we really do need a striker. Bendtner isn’t prolific enough yet and walcott isn’t a striker. Arshavin and vela are very talented players, but not twenty goals a season ian wright types. Simpson looks like the most natural finisher we have, but had a very poor end to last season while being played out of position.

  13. Get huntelaar and stop wasting time arsene wenger

  14. We need a defensive midfielder and a good striker like huntelaar. Wenger pls go for these players at least two and do not sell Eboue

  15. You know i wonder if you are not on AFC payroll. whatever drug you are on, you better leave it because your publication is senseless.You, Wenger and the Arsenal board are liar liar.Before the end of the season he promised to inject some experience into the squad and from all indications he is just taken us for granted and if he doesnt buy experiece, i will give up my season ticket. To hellwith renewall.Mind u, i will take huntelaar over most striker in the premiership.

  16. i don’t think wenger and the board care much about fans. they transformed arsenal to a selling club. they have sold ade and going to sell fabrigas next summer. i don’t beleive they will sign hantelaar. they’r going to bring in two or three youngesters and keep talking about their potencial. remember this after chrismas

  17. huntelaar can get fucked! we dont even need him! our first priority is to get a GOOD DM or we will not win enything next season and fabregas will go to barca and wenger might go sumwhere else too. we have eduardo van persie vela bentdner arshavin and walcott who can play up front so we shouldnt worry about that especialy since we will have arshavin(who single handedly dragged us back into the top 4) all season. my prediction(premier league goals this season):

    eduardo -14
    van persie -13
    arshavin -10
    fabregas -8
    rosicky -7
    nasri -7
    walcott -6
    denilson -3
    defence -6
    total =74

    btw will every1 stop sayin eduardo is injury prone, he broke and dislocated his ankle at the same time, give him a break!!

  18. here are sum stats RVP vs. KJH look at it an u c a huge difference on who is better;
    RVP Apps Goals
    2001–2004 Feyenoord 059 (15)
    2004– Arsenal 115 (39)
    2005– Netherlands 036 (13)

    KJH
    2002–2004 PSV 1 (0)
    2003 → De Graafschap (loan) 9 (0)
    2003–2004 → AGOVV (loan)35 (26)
    2004–2005 Heerenveen 46 (33)
    2005–2008 Ajax 92 (76)
    2009–2009 Real Madrid 20 (8 )
    2006– Netherlands 23 (13)

    so as i c it by KJH (Huntelaar) is more efficent in front of goal then RVP. he is termed as apoacher an he plays different style maybe that is exactly what we need to win something eh??

  19. i agree modde. we shud buy him. we breate so much and wit e-MAN-uel ade-BUY-WHORE gone the chances he gets shud be converted by som1. get a proven goal scorer like klass/ class. and a dm. Personally i think song/denilson isnt doing bad in that area at all. And flamoney did nit do shit. it was cesc that helped him out in tackling. remember the MILAN game…?? CESC kept Kaka out of the game

  20. You dont want Huntelaar yet want to keep Eboue? Jesus Christ you are insane, i think we should get Klass and keep Eboue. Face it, we need someone like Huntelaar who can take his chances, we have 25 mill so lets spend it!

  21. AFN we hav 2be wise dis tim aroud. Did u know whould hav win som tin last season if flamin&leab war not sold + Ashvn ooo my God we would hav ben beta. Lok back 2d way we ar droped in FA CUP.CAMPIONS LEAG..wit smal smal mistakes. Pls we need players wew need 2add not subtract, atral vp, bent,(ade),wacot,eduado,vela…ware there last season not was achive,pls tep al ur players and buy more we should not be losing players every season.look at livapool,cealsea, etc. Buy Player always mak a team great.

  22. arsenal’s main offensive problem is inconsistency, mainly because most of our players are somewhat young and immature and tend not to have a stable enough mindset to be clinical around the goal. rvp, cesc, ade, walcott, bendtner, vela, diaby all suffer and may still suffer from this problem.

    that’s why arshavin was a breath of fresh air, because he is stable and hence finishes calmly and clinically. same with eduardo. it is no coincidence they are two of the older players on the team. huntelaar, imo, much more resembles the latter group than the former, and i believe rosicky will as well. i think kjh would be a great addition as long as we pick something very good up defensively also.

  23. Oh my God, wat business does mikel slivestre has to do wit arsenal dis season. Since we need to sell a player diaby,slivestre & aluminia are good to go. One more complaint wenger stop playing wit our intelligence by wasting our time in terms of buying players not a player. Will die if u buy reasonable players many atime i begin wonder if wenger is posses bcos i don’t think if he knows dat arsenal fc have fans is high time he stops all dis 419 promises.

  24. THIS GOES OUT TO ALL AFC FANS.
    PLS GUYZ DONT LET YOUR BELIEF IN THIS TEAM WAVER. IT WAS SEEN LAST SEASON WHAT THESE GUYZ CAN DO WITH OUR SUPPORT. U CANT GIVE WHAT YOU DONT HAVE!! THEIR PLAY CANT BRIM WITH CONFIDENCE WHEN THEY DONT HAVE IT FROM THEIR FANS, THERE’S SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT THEM THAT WE CAN’T BRING OUT DIVIDED. IT WAS NO COINCIDENCE WE BEAT MAN UTD, CHELSEA & DIDN’T LOSE AGAINST LIVERPOOL.

    THE FACT IS THIS, IF YOU THINK THEY’RE NOT GOOD ENOUGH THEN THEY’LL NEVER BE GOOD AT ALL. NO MATTER HOW WELL WE START THIS SEASON AND U’R STARTING TO CHANGE UR MIND, IF WE ERR @ SOME POINT, AND WE WILL, IN THE SEASON, UR MINDSET WILL INEVITABLY MAKE YOU THINK IT WAS A FLUKE. ARSENE WILL DEFINITELY SIGN ANOTHER DEFENDER OR A DCM BUT PLS BE POSITIVE COZ TRUTHFULLY THERE’S NO & I MEAN NO OTHER MANAGER @ THE MOMENT I’D RATHER SEE @ D HELM OF AFFAIRS. That said, I think young _gunnerz underestimated Flamini’s workrate in that Milan game coz he was immense in trackin down Kaka.

  25. Wenger go get jones 4rm sunderland it not kill u and d arsenal board stop behaving like 419

  26. Buy a striker now so dat he can adapt to our pattern of play b4 the season starts. So dat it won’t be an excuse 4 him & defencivemidfielder, wenger should know dat time wasted cannot be regained.
