Okay - the last one sounds like a wild rumour - but supposedly, we are keeping tabs on him.

The more serious rumours that can be backed up are as follows:

Marouanne Fellaini (Everton)

We have activated (or tried to, rather - the player has to agree) the buy-out clause of Marouanne Fellaini for 26 million.

Gonzalo Higuain (Real Madrid):

We are almost certainly trying to get, among others, Gonzalo Higuain of Real Madrid. I think we can take this for granted because after wanting 25 million for him, Perez suddenly wants 30 million Euros - he said so this week. Why? Because he knows that we are now in the race when previously only one club was: Juventus. This is an apparent way of getting a bidding war started.

More importantly: the player admitted he was talking to us.

Everyone else on this list has been linked with us in the past week and is known to be in a position Wenger wants strengthening.

So what do we think?

Arsenal can now afford to sign Wayne Rooney, says chief executive

• Arsène Wenger to have extra £70m a year for top players
• Ivan Gazidis outlines increase in Arsenal's 'financial firepower'



That's the headline in the Guardian today. And guys. It looks real. There are quotes and shit from Gazidis + Picture of kind Mr Wenger with him.

HERE IS A LINK

And I don't mean the Rooney-transfer looks real, specifically, I mean the money. The money looks like it's actually going to be there now...

What do we think? I'm a little...speechless. It's been a LOOOONG time. We never spent that big anyway before building the stadium - because player-inflation wasn't as bad before 2005. But they always talked about slightly more money (a cynic would say, around the time the season tickets needed renewing) but this time it looks really legit.

I'm really thrilled, myself :))

For anybody who doesn't know, Elementary is a modern-day version of the Sherlock Holmes stories set in New York City.

Vinnie Jones, who you might remember from this picture (or as the rabid Man United fan in EuroTrip), plays Sebastian Moran, the guy who carries out murders ordered by Sherlock's nemesis, Moriarty.

And Elementary's version of Sebastian Moran happens to be a big Arsenal fan.



He eventually winds up in prison, and this happens:

Also, he sings.  Really creepily.

(Spoiler alert for the 5/2/13 episode 1x21)



I can't whether this delights or upsets me.
 
 
...like Jay-Z, for example:

Jay-Z went to the Arsenal-Man United match with Coldplay’s Chris Martin

Perhaps eager to join the chorus of boos for Robin van Persie upon his return to Emirates Stadium, Jay-Z was in attendance for Arsenal's 1-1 draw against Manchester United along with friend, collaborator and Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin.

Jay-Z, a part owner of the NBA's Brooklyn Nets until he recently started his own sports management agency, previously attended Man City's match against Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium in 2010 as a guest of City. He later clarified his allegiances to Arsenal Magazine:




“After that game the press started reporting that I was a Manchester City fan, I am really glad all that has been cleared up and that everybody in the UK knows that I am an Arsenal fan.

“I will come to Emirates soon that's for sure. I love London as a city, it’s just finding time when I am over here for a few days to come and watch a game. I will find time soon, I will make sure of it.”



And three years later, he did.

Jay also explained how he first became an Arsenal supporter.




“It was about five years ago now,” explains the ten-time Grammy Award winner. “When Thierry Henry was at the club I saw him play and I just thought he was an amazing player, ever since then I have been a big fan of the club, following you guys and still today you play the beautiful football that Thierry did, I think he had a real long term effect on the team."

“I love all sports, but what I really love is when people play sport in a beautiful way, and that's one thing Arsenal do for sure."



So now that Jay-Z has finally made it to the Emirates, he really should go watch Martin's favorite club, League Two side Exeter City.

You know, this is Arsenal, so this is what happens...they tell us "out for two weeks" and then two years later you ask yourself: "It's been awhile since I saw this or that player...I wonder what happened..."

Club announcement: Abou Diaby injured himself in training and will be out for NINE FUCKING MONTHS

So based on that ratio, my darlingest boy will be out for 36 years until 2049...

I could very possibly be dead by then, of course!

*sob*



We meet Reading this weekend. I want to make a prediction to match the mood of this post. Having scored against them 1000 times already this season, brace yourselves for a 0-0 draw. YOU KNOW IT.

*sob*
