REPORT: Arsenal Line Up Shock Move For Tottenham Defender!

By on January 22, 2011

tottenham news

Sky Sports News is reporting that Arsenal are considering a shock move for Jonathan Woodgate, who just happens to belong to our fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur.  I would normally say ‘plays for our fierce rivals…’ but Woodgate hasn’t played for around 2 years so that wouldn’t be suitable!

Woodgate came through a practice match in midweek and apparently Wenger sees him as the man to fill the void left by the injured Vermaelen. If this is true, which i highly doubt, it is not only very worrying but a little embarrassing. With Arsenal still involved in all 4 competitions this season, and with 2 of our first choice centre backs out injured, the last thing we need is an injury prone player coming in!

This smacks of desperation from Wenger and i hate to say it, but just shows Gooners once again he isn’t willing to put his hand in his pocket and spend money on a proper player who will make a real impact. He is only looking for someone to ‘make do’. Not only that, he’s gone for a player who is about 6th choice at our bitter rivals down the road. Sure if he was fit he would start and he is a very good player, again, when fit. But the fact remains he cant stay fit and would not stay fit until the end of the season.

All Arsenal fans are dreaming of a Gary Cahill or Chris Samba type signing, a player of good age and someone who will only get better under the tutelage of Wenger. But now we’re being told Le Boss is in fact looking at a 31 year old who can’t stay fit longer than Robin Van Persie?! How depressing.

Spurs are willing to let Woodgate go on loan till the end of the season to regain fitness, with QPR being the likely destination, and its very unlikely Harry Redknapp will allow one of his players to join not only a North London enemy but a top four rival.  But who knows, in the unlikely event this happens, Woodgate may come in and do a similar job to what Sol Campbell did last season. But am i wrong in thinking it would take Woodgate a few weeks to get match sharp? By that time Squillaci and Vermaelen will be back, so what’s the point?

Would you like to see Woodgate at Arsenal? Leave your comments below…

    Ha ha ha ha ha…. Never going to happen. Woodgate will be available for loan only and there’s ZERO chance of him being loaned to another Premiership club, let alone Arsenal.

    You could always make an offer for William G maybe 10 mil.

    You got to laugh all those goons laughing at us for signing William i bet they wish they had him back as it stands he is playing better than anything they have

    This is the usual trick by the media to court publicity (and in this case, viewers). A downmarket newspaper will now take up the story to sell its wares. Forget it.

    Later news.
    My gran cleans at Man City. She says she saw copies of an email offering Arsenal £15m PLUS Adebayor in exchange for Nasri. She said that when she empties more waste-paper baskets, she will let me know any later news.

    Cannot see Wenger going for a old crock like Woody. He likes youngsters (so I hear).

    woodgate, is not coming! he needs 2 weeks before he gets match fit, then barring no problems, he will need his sharpness, which will take him about 3 weeks. sorry but no way. tv5 will be back.

    Sorry to dissapoint ya spuds out there but we gunners don’t actually miss gallas. Our team morale has improved this season and a player who strongly disliked gallas(nasri) is in the form of his life.

    Also if your defence is so good then why do you ship more goals than us :b. I mean we get called leaky so wtf are you! Pretenders thats what.

    I think any gooner would rather have TV5 and djourou over gallas. Kozzer has a lot of skill and with experience can become 1st choice and squillacci has a more positive morale for our team than gallas. Don’t get me wrong gallas is quality but he is by no means missed around our parts.

    HoskSpur, I get the disgusting insinuation behind your comment. It is I assume an attempt at humour but in truth it is a slur on Arsene Wenger. It is insulting, defamatory and potentially libelous. I have made Arsenal football club aware of it.

    PMSL Remind of the score again ? you should have said you have been better than us and it was a bit of a joke which clearly you failed to see due to your teams decline.

    1 thing for sure is if Gallas was still at with you he would be the first name on the team sheet

    Who said our defense was soooooooo good ? we have had to chop and change it almost every match IF and its a big IF LEDDYS/WOODY were fit they would be 2 of the very best in the PL
