Arsenal Partridge + daily round-up

Posted by James Dall on 1, July 2007

Well I have arrived. After my five hour drive to Harrogate, I am finally settled at the B&B. It is here I will pretty much live for the next month…

There was no blog yesterday after spending most of my day packing. Lucky for me there is little to cover really. There is of course rumours aplenty, however I am not going to dwell on many of them.

The Tevez speculation is gathering momentum. But it does seem that we will have to wait until the Copa America is over. Kia Joorabchian said:

It is a big competition and we intend talking more seriously about his future when that tournament is over.

That seems fair enough to me. So the chit-chat from the press will continue until 15th July. The chi-chat would of course cease if Arsene piped up about the current striker situation. I hope we hear something from Arsene soon.

It seems Real are keen on keeping Reyes at the club but for a bargain price. Word has it that Madrid have offered £6 million. Arsenal want around £10 million. I think the general consensus is that Athletico Madrid will enter a bidding war with Real, what with their extra pocket money.

We all knew this was happening ages ago but club’s official website have confirmed Lupoli has signed for Fiorentina. He seemed to have a fair amount of promise about him. He had a real eye for goal. Shame really.

The rumours continue with people saying that we could well be in for Eto’o. Many have scratched their heads at this rumour as surely if we were going to get him he would have been part of the Henry deal. Only time will tell to see if this is a load of bollocks or not.

That is your lot. I am knackered. A fresher more wide awake blog tomorrow.

    Why is Arsenal doing this? This is not good for thr club. Selling Henry for 16 million was bad business. His shirt sales would of been that. Then not having a replacment straight away. Henry was the best player in the world. How comes we are not to be intrested in any players. We are becoming a feeder club for the spanish teams. We have a lovley stadium and need a team for it with experience and not all kids.

    BREAKING NEWS – Arsenal snap up striker Da Silva

    Eduardo is Arsenal’s first signing since the departure of Thierry Henry
    Arsenal have swooped to sign Croatian international striker Eduardo da Silva from Dinamo Zagreb.
    The 24-year-old, who scored against England in a Euro 2008 qualifier in October, has signed a four-year contract at the Emirates Stadium.

    The fee is undisclosed and Da Silva will be unveiled as an Arsenal player after completing a medical at the club.

    Da Silva moved to Croatia when he was 15 and took nationality at 22. He has scored seven goals for his country.

    Da Silva scored the first competitive goal at the Emirates when Arsenal beat Dinamo Zagreb 5-1 on aggregate in last season’s Champions League third qualifying round.

    He finished the Croatian season with a record 34 goals.
