Today's blog is dedicated to the saviour of Arsenal Football Club, Mr Carl Jenkinson, the multi-capped international footballer for club and country, and one shining hope for the future of The Defeatables!
In a busy summer transfer window, a whole month in, with only two weeks to go to the Emirates Cup and pre-season games, Wenger has finally fulfilled his promise of opening the kitty-bag and splashing out on the big name players we so desperately need.
Man U have already secured Ashley Young's signature, as well as the most gifted goal-keeper in years David De Gea. Chelsea seem sure to sign Lukaku and Neymar. And Man City will hold on to Tevez while also trying to bring in Snejider and Kaka.
But for the first time, Wenger has seen their hands and raised them - dare I say - gone all in, for British-Finnish ex-Charlton right back, Carl "El Saviour" Jenkinson.
Wenger had to offload Fabregas and Nasri in order to release the funds to bring the right-footed teenager across the river to the Emirates, but the fans and board alike will see this pay dividends straight away.
One fan couldn't believe it when the news finally came through, "I can't believe it", he said.
After a lot of to-ing and fro-ing from agents and both team managers, the intricate contract (compete with incentives, multiple-clauses and bonuses) was drawn up and signed.
"We make the money back on the amount of shirts he'll sell alone", said board member, Ivan Gazidis.
Carl himself was honoured to be part of The Inevitables saying, "I can't wait to have the team built around me, and play alongside such greats as Diaby, Eboue, Denilson, Bendtner, Clichy, Squillaci, Rosicky, Almunia and Arshavin - all of whom, at this point in time, are still under contract for Arsenal and yet to be sold. I just can't wait to make a pass with the ball, and then to run on a bit and receive the pass back again. It's going to be sweet."
Here's to a long list of trophies built on the solid cornerstone of our team - Carl "El Saviour" Jenkinson!
The future's great. The future's Carl.
