Wenger to Report Inter Milan For Tapping Up Hleb

Morning everyone. I'm bloody tired. Hang on going to start the coffee maker. Ok coffee is being made. So the first story today is about Alexander Hleb and Inter Milan. It is a tale of Ice Cream, Italian cunts, and agents that never are happy with what they have. Apparently when we went down to Milan before the match at the San Siro, Hleb and his agent went off to speak with Inter Milan the night before, which is clearly not allowed. They left in the same taxi at night, that much was admitted to, but his agent said that "they went to get ice cream." Hleb's agent flew into Milan just to take him out for some ice cream!? Nice bloke then that guy.

Of course Arsene Wenger didn't believe a word of it and got pissed off as most people would. Here it is the night before a huge match and one of your starters is out sharing sundaes with Inter Milan. So he said that he is going to report Inter for tapping up Hleb. Hleb's agent then said:

"It's not true that they went to talk to Inter Milan." They went for an ice-cream. We are sorry that Mr Wenger took it badly and complained because we have a good relationship with him."

So the moral of the story is that Hleb and his agent both think that everyone is an idiot but themselves and I hope Inter get fined 100 million quid. Not going to happen but wouldn't that be nice?

In more Italian news, Abou Diaby's agent has been talking about how his client could make "the jump to a major Italian club" in two years. Since when is Arsenal not good enough for all of these players? I can't remember many people leaving Arsenal to go to an Italian club, and now it's the hot thing to do. Diaby is only 21 and in 2 years he could be a starter for Arsenal, who knows. He needs to tell his agent to shut up and let him try to become a better player and he may turn out to be a great one here with Arsenal.

In news not related to Italy, Young Guns reports that Arsenal are set to offer Carlos Vela a new contract. I think he's quite a good player for us and when he gets back he can bring a lot to the squad. If you've never had a chance to see him play, check him out on youtube or watch him play for Osasuna or something but take a look at him. He's another young guy with huge potential and I think if Rosicky keeps getting hurt he may lose his spot to Vela next season.

The 2008 Emirates Cup will again feature some top teams along with Arsenal, and a source from inside the club has said that those teams will be Real Madrid, Juventus, and Hamburg. Now those should be some fun games to watch. I'll be especially excited about the Madrid game. Loved the last time we played them. In fact, (cross your fingers) that may be the first time I ever get to make it over to England to watch the tournament. It's reportedly going to be the first weekend in August which is perfect for me but the date should be confirmed in the coming months.

Last but not least today, Gael Clichy spoke of having to face Liverpool 3 times in a week. He said it should be "quite good fun." Yeah it will be fun if we win all three of them. I hate Liverpool. Does Torres not look like a woman by the way? I've always thought this but haven't really asked anyone else, so tell me what you think.

Well that's all I've got for you today. Have a good one and up the Gunners!
