Song offered to Barcelona…

In Arsenal FC on August 20, 2009 by Highbury N5 Editor

….it is rumored Arsenal sent Barcelona a CD last night, featuring tracks like T.I’s ‘You Can Have Whatever You Like‘, aimed at Pep Guardiola with his recent interests in Fabregas, Eboue and maybe even Alex Song if this site is to be believed.

The CD also has songs dedicated to recently departed Barca star Alex Hleb; (‘Silly Boy’ – Rihanna), ‘Slip n’ Fall by Baba Khan’, (aimed at the diving Dani Alves). The last track was apparently ‘Shut The Fuck Up by Basshunter‘…. Its rumored that it was aimed at the entire Spanish press.

It also contained Areosmith classic ‘Dude Looks Like a Lady’ in a sly dig at Althletic’s South African champion Caster Semenya who is claiming to be a woman, but the governing body want her/he/she/him to take a gender test. How hard can it be? Someone either has a bulge down below or not….


As you have probably gathered (if you have even read this far that is), there is precious little news around.

According to some Hungarian player, Balazs Dzsudzsak (pronounced* ‘uh’), we have made a formal approach for him. He is an attacking midfielder that is 22 years of age. The reason I am talking about this is because with the Chamakh deal seemingly dead in the water unless Wenger goes back to Bordeaux on deadline day and forces their hand, it is a possibility the story is true. He is an attacking midfielder that plays on the wing or on the right or left of a forward three.

Bakary Sagna has praised the Atmosphere up in Glasgow on Tuesday night, the beaded Frenchman saying:

“I think the atmosphere is one of the most amazing in Europe and it was great to play in front of those fans, It was hard to stay focused on the pitch. It’s difficult to play against this kind of atmosphere. It is one of the most amazing I have ever witnessed. But we did quite well with it.”

The atmosphere did sound very good when I was watching, and it goes to show this side can’t be intimidated, just like at Fenerbache in last seasons Champions League, that atmosphere is almost violent.

Last night saw Burnley beat United in a quite brilliant game, it is proof to me that the title this season might just be the most open we have had in quite some time. I don’t remember seeing such a toothless United team. They hardly fashioned a single chance, take nothing away from Burnley though, it was a great performance by them. What a story for that little town.

I see flaws in the other top teams, by that I mean United, Chelsea and Liverpool, that I have not seen in previous years. United have lost a harrier in Tevez and an out and out match-winner in Ronaldo, Liverpool have lost their most under-rated player in Alonso who held that team together despite everyone pointing out Torres and Gerrard as the most important players in their side. Chelsea will lose a lot of players to the ACN at a crucial time, they have a manager that has not won a top league before and an aging squad. They have lost their most valuable asset of last season, Guus Hiddink.

Yes, its early doors but they are my first impressions. Arsenal have a feel good factor at the moment, lets enjoy it.

The transfer window will now shut on Tuesday 1st September at 5pm. I will be running live updates of the transfer deadline day on this very blog.

Thats about it today, good luck if your collecting your exam results. More tomorrow.

*I’m sure it isn’t really, its another feeble attempt at humour on my part.

  1. WOW, Man U losing was such a suprise, this is fantastic as they will be low on confidence when they face us and hopefully we are on a high.

  2. The Song rumour is absolutely ridiculous. Whoever came up with that story must have been hella bored.

    Yes, and Man United losing to Burnley was pleasing to say the least – almost orgasmic in fact. Two of the Big 4 have lost in their first two games. And people doubted Arsenal. Ha. I agree with you when you talk about the other top team’s flaws. The press just seems to overlook them and focus on Arsenal. I can’t wait until their proven wrong.

  3. *they’re

  4. does the CD feature “Coming Home” by John Legend from Fabregas?

  5. Song is staying put it’s just a rumour. Great start though eh?
    Especially with anM Utd and Liverpool losing to ‘smaller’ teams. All we heard throughout the summer was that Arsenal would lose their top 4 status to Man City. I know it’s still very early but come on… Ye Of Little Faith!

  6. Sadly, if we do add the Hungarian, the spelling and pronouncing of his name will lead to a rather unfortunate standardization of “Balls Dudesack”.

    Hopefully we’ll all see fit to shorten it to just “Dude”, to go along with our beloved Eduardo/Dudu.


  7. Another blog seem to have your style LOL!
