Atleast in 2012, there is good news on the transfer front, why shouldn't I gloat..
There are new players in the pipeline.. Yes brand new.
Not a 17 year old Frenchman or Mikael Silvestre.
Exciting stuff this time, Euro winners, Bundesliga winners, Ligue 1 winners. That's what I am talking about.
But the haters won't relent. They will not stop and just give us a break. They know themselves.
Man United fans who are still making noise.. Can't top rather.
Yes you, you went trophy less too last season.
Live with it.
We are more of less the same.. No trophies, no prospects.
And before you go to the Van Persie joining you story, I have a reply.
You can have him.
The guy has just turned 29 today and has the injury record of Osborne Monday.
Added to that, as you know too well, no player does too well after leaving the mighty gunners, and he will be no exception.
So as soon as you have the 30 Million Pounds ready, you can have him for keeps.
As for whether we will compete, well, we will be right up there with you this season.
We have bought left foot bomb Podolski, Burly Giroud, Technical Cazorla and we will soon have Creative Sahin.
As for you guys, you have Asian Kagawa and toddler Powell.
Ati they are world class... A Japanese sailor and English tryout world class signings?
Give me a break.
Thing is, Arsenal are not the best at what they do currently. I admit. We have a silly man incharge and a clueless board backing him.
However, United are not too far off, trust me. We where where you were three years ago.
Do not let even the great Sir Alex fool you that Kagawa is anywhere near Ronaldo.
Or Powell near Scholes.. They are different world's apart.
Do not hear his complaints about how expensive Van Persie is, they are a part of how football is when there is no money.
Get used to it
Which is where United are at the moment.
You are no longer champions, there is no money to be spent and players shun you like the rest of us. Live with it.
I won't even go into the debt figures, they are way too depressing even for myself.
My advice is to get your seat belts on, it will be a rough ride on this train ride.
