    I’m guessing he doesn’t need a special talent visa considering he’s a full international? He can just get a normal visa

    Strange way to reveal the player at the selling club, no way would we allow fabregas to be revealed at emirates and exchange his arsenal top with a barca one in a press confrence!!

    dinho, that’s because it is a historic event for his club and country; for a young Costa Rican to be a transfer subject to a big club in Europe. They feel honoured.

    so thats what Richard Laws looks like, nothing like i thought he would. Bimbo great sponser. Heard a american football pundit say that this guy is a rough diamond, he has all the ability to be as good as Henry, but he needs to sort out his personal issues, before he can suceed.

    he also said that he needs to adapt to life in the UK coz he seems the kind of guy who could get carried away with fame.

    Stated that his club in Costa Rica is known for developing good technical players, although not on same level as premiership.

    Good luck to this guy, hope he suceeds.

    We could have had E’too or Benzema, or Suarez – before Liverpool beat us to him. The “super super quality” that our has-been manager keeps telling us he is in the market for. The senile one tells us that ” we will only bring in players that are better than what we have.” So Campbell is better than Van Persie ? We keep Squillaci wasting space on the payroll, because it’s obvious he’s better than Cahill or Mertesacker ? Mata would not improve our squad at all ? “I don’t have to give a reason.” Wenger disdainfully said, when asked why he ruled out Mata. The reason is because he has an inbuilt aversion to spending money, even when he has 58 million of it to play with ! It’s not that we don’t have funds to use, it’s that he is terrified at the prospect of ACTING AGAINST HIS NATURE. Pure stubborness. And the team suffers because of it. Wenger is either a liar, is incompetent or has a mental disorder. ( Probably all of these. )
    Joel Campbell – this is ambition ? What a joke.
    “In Arsene we rust.”
