Football update: Arsenal season 2011/2012

Last weekend was the start of the new season. Football. My life. The football season keeps my insane life more insane and I get to compete and talk bullshit with my male friends, what's not to like? :D But having your other half there with you would be a lot nicer.



Imagine my greatest dismay and utter disappointment when I found out 4 of my favorite players have moved (transfer) to other clubs. =____='' It was really sad.

1. Gael Clichy



I think he was the most versatile player especially paired with Bacary Sagna. I hope he isn't thinking about moving too! We will miss you Clichy.

2. Cesc Fabregas



This move was (not) a big shocker. There was a lot of speculation that he wanted to move since 2 years ago but he always state that he is a true Gunner. But we all know he can only be a true Gunner for so long and one day would move back to his hometown, Barcelona. I actually was very disappointed to hear he actually wanted to move this season. After losing Clichy, this was one sad, sad story to me. And he was the captain and was pretty good too! =____=''

3. Emmanuel Eboue




4. Samir Nasri (possible move)


Arsene Wenger did brought home a few new players:

#15 Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
Joined August 2011
Striker


This guy have the longest name :P and I think he has the sweetest smile :)

#25 Carl Jenkinson
Joined June 2011
Defender


Am excited to see him play.

#27 Gervinho
Joined July 2011
Striker


This dude is from Ivory Coast I guess replacing Eboue. :) He got in a little tiff in the first game but I am excited for him to play too :) And a striker, which is pretty awesome.

#31 Ryo Miyaichi
Striker (another one!)


I believe this guy is from Japan (I think?). I am not sure but he looks sweet doesn't he? :D Am hoping he is just as good as Park Ji Sung the Manchester United player.

The started their first game last Saturday which they draw, 0 - 0 with Newcastle United. They also played in the UEFA Champions League vs Udinese Calcio and they won. :) Yay! Their next game is this Saturday against Liverpool and I am excited. :)

Sorry for the geeky-ness and football overload. XD
