Transfer News and a Man U Cup Draw

Well hello everyone, sorry I've been gone the last two days. I was down in Orlando watching my beloved Boston Celtics lose to the Magic. However I did get to see highlights from the big 3-0 win against Newcastle.

Emmanuel Adebayor scored two more impressive goals and let me have a few words on him. There are still people out there that do not think he belongs in the side. He has scored eighteen goals this season and we aren't even out of January yet. He has already passed Henry's total from last year, and even though Henry was injured a lot of the year, there were people saying it was impossible to match his production. Adebayor has gone a long way to ease this transition just by himself and if he keeps scoring at this pace he'll easily score 25 goals in the league. Eight more in four months should be child's play for him. He could even get close to the 33 total that Henry scored two years ago. He's been outstanding for us and anyone who says he doesn't belong in the team should start watching matches.

In other news, the FA Cup draw threw us up a tough one, as we have to go to Manchester United. That will certainly be a tough game and now we have to play there twice before the end of the season, once in the cup and once in the league. Should be a dandy.

Now for some transfer news, Arsene Wenger says he didn't bid for Jonathan Woodgate. Well thank God.

A twenty-one year old Wolfsburg player, Edin Dzeko, is apparently a target for us as well. Never heard of him but he plays forward. I don't think there is much to the story, they only wrote it because Boro Primorac had a quote about him.

In injury news, Kolo Toure was injured at the ACN but it is just a thigh strain and shouldn't be any big problem. Tomas Rosicky was injured in the first ten minutes Saturday but Wenger says he should only be out, "days not weeks." And some very good news, Robin van Persie is expected back in training on Tuesday. Let's hope he isn't rushed back too early this time as we could really use him for the last part of the season.

Cheers to beating Newcastle again.
