Sagna, Wenger and Mertesacker to sign a new contract?
So the gossip is that Arsene Wenger, Bacary Sagna and Per Mertesacker are all in advanced contract discussions and that the club is set to announce an agreement with all three in the coming two weeks. This would be a wonderful statement of intent by the Gunners. Let’s hope it’s true and that this doesn’t drag out for too long. Sagna is the best right back in the country and Mertesacker adds a lot on the field and off it.
On the pitch, we picked up an important 2-1 win away at Aston Villa. The kind of performances that will win titles. I was very impressed with the fighting spirit of all of the players during that game, especially Jack Wilshere. It’s great to see him doing so well. He’s going to need to keep the form up ahead of the World Cup, there’s massive competition for places. For England, I think he should partner Ross Barkley in the middle – a great little duo.
Our next game is the home game against Coventry City in the FA Cup. What a great draw we got there, let’s hope we see it through. We need to play a strong team, so let’s hope we see some of our best players.
