Now, that Berbatov has signaled his intention to leave Fulham, every one who is in the market for a new striker this January is on high alert. Teams being linked to possible destinations also include our beloved Tottenham along with West Ham and dastardly Arsenal. Dam them and their deep deep pockets. Berbatov is clearly past his prime but clearly still a threat too, and I feel he may be a good fit as a good back up stricker at Arsenal rather than leading the attack consistently at White Hart Lane.
The speculation regarding Inter Milan star Alvaro Pereira being loaned out to us has also died down over the last few weeks. That was one potential rumor that i hoped was true as we could use another left back and the hope was that AVB and Pereira would have a good understanding with each other having worked together at Porto. That sadly does not seem to be likely any more.
I also absolutely cannot understand the ‘deal’ that we have with Real Madrid. Alvaro Morato is being touted as the next big thing and both Villas-Boas as well as Wenger were keen to secure his services. Who do they pick? Our arch rivals over us, stabbing us in the back again!
I can feel a rant coming up. But that will probably take up an entire post on its own.
