Sir Scarface Goes Great Guns

Exciting news for Arsenal fans, who’ve already enjoyed a *vigorous* close-season transfer frenzy: Ribery is coming. One of the most exciting players in the World Cup will undoubtedly thrive in Arsene Wenger’s tres artistique set-up at the club’s luxe new stadium. Note, though, if you click to the Graniad’s story, that their correspondent reflexively refers to Wenger as “the Highbury manager.” I guess “Emirates Stadium manager” will never have quite the same ring, eh?

Meanwhile, it looks like at least a couple other blue-chip moves are imminent before the big leagues kick off. I’m much more excited about following the Euro majors this season after the gripping soap operas of the World Cup, Zidane’s skull, the Italian Job, etc. Should offer intrigue aplenty!
