Arsenal

£10m Man Negotiations Underway Arsene Confident

He is either telling porkies to mask his intentions or he is losing touch with reality, both are likely when it comes to the Nutty Professor.

Yesterday Arsene flatly denied contact with the experienced Brazilian midfielder Jadson (27) who is valued at £10m, but in today’s papers Shakhtar coach Mircea Lucescu blew Arsene’s cover. Lucescu stated,

“I can confirm Arsenal have contacted Jadson, It all now depends on him.”

Arsene must be telling porkies rather than loosing touch with reality but ahead of a big night for Arsene, a night in which the manager has to reassure the fans that he is moving the club forward rather than just  stagnating their beloved club.  If things go wrong then it might lead to Arsene finally losing the plot and the faith of a few more fans. It must feel  tense for poor old Arsene, but tenser perhaps for the gunner’s fans.

While most of the fans, and rightly so, remain behind the manager, their is a growing minority who are becoming restless and  fed up with what they see as a team on the slide.  They see a team that buckles under pressure because it lacks a spine  and proper leadership – then they feel that they being bullied into selling  want-away captain Cesc Fabregas and most likely the sale of  influential midfielder Samir Nasri.

For Arsene to win back full support it is  imperative then Arsene reinvests every penny of the sale of of both Cesc and Nasri. He must not so much replace Nasri and Cesc as they already have their natural replacements in the talented Witshire and Ramsey.

Arsene must instead  invest in areas where they lack presence, they need a holding midfielder and at least one center back plus quality on the wing, one of which must need experience and leadership. In Jadson, they may have just got the experience they have been lacking.

Jadson lifted the 2009 UEFA Cup in which he supplied the winning goal. Jadson could provide the gunners with the steel and cutting edge they have lacked for some time.
