Transfer madness 3 go, 2 in and £9m!!!

Well, the dust seems to have settled to reveal the full picture of yesterdays mayhem.

Cashley has gone to the bank of Chelsea and in return we get Gallas and £5m. Not sure who has won out of this deal, but at least Mr. Pop Idol has left the club that got him where he is today, I hope he doesn’t have a recurrence of the injury that forced him to miss most of last season!!!!!! As for Gallas, yes he is versatile, yes he can add some much needed strength to the midfield, so lets see if he wants to be a Gunner?

The simpleton has gone back to Spain, thank God I won’t have to bump into him wandering aimlessly around Brent Cross with his vertically challenged family – Adios Jose Antonio and thanks for the 3 or 4 good games. In return, Arsene has his Beast, Baptista along with £2m. Possibly a good signing if he can settle in London, Gilberto, its down to you.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the day, was Villa Real, not satisfied with an injured Bobby, have paid £2m for Cygan – there is a God out there.

At the end of the day, I think we have come out of this debarkle pretty well, £9m to hopefully put towards the January 31st deadline, and 2 quality players that need to settle in quickly.

How different this team looks to the ‘invisibles’, at least now there is some physical strength in the side again, and the bully boy tactics of Bolton, Wigan and the like won’t carry any weight this season. Let’s put our trust in Arsenal’s most successful Manager to get it right once again, and get behind the new Gunners.
