It's Oh So Quiet......Shhhhhhhh.


The international break always seems to come at the wrong time doesn't it? Just when you've got a monkey off your back and are looking to crack on with your season you are stopped by the purgatory that is international football and the fear of Abou Diaby coming back broken. But outisde those two feelings, nothing is happening, well not literally nothing but......

Bacary Sagna has given an interview with L'Equipe in which he reveals his surprise at Alex Song leaving this summer (Really Bac? Really?) and admits that losing Van Persie "Didn't surprise him" but finishes by saying that "both leaving is a huge loss for the club and you have to ask questions". "I Understand the fans are upset". Is this the Bacary Sagna who's contract expires in 2014? If I were Arsene or Ivan reading my copy of L'Equipe this morning I'd be looking up from it and muttering "Ruh-Roh!"

The fans (Or the ones I see, read etc) are slightly miffed Bacary, I'll give you that, we're not miffed by the fact that we sell players (Although selling Van Stapleton to Man Utd was a bonehead decision) it's the fact that we always feel we haven't replaced them properly. We replaced Nasri with Gervinho and Fabregas with Arteta last summer and then found out Arteta's best position was no-where near where Cesc used to play and it's taken until Santi Cazorla to get even near replacing him.

Thomas Vermaelen is praising the impact of Steve Bould and told SSN "We work a lot on our defensive play and you can see that with our three clean sheets."

Probably should of been doing that for a while longer Thomas but happy we're there in the end.

Lat bit of news is proof that an Arsenal player can put pen to paper with the news Olivier Giroud has extended his contract with Puma. 

These next few days are going to be barren.

Until tomorrow.
