Should Arsenal Go All Out To Sign The Ultimate Mercenary?

Think of this as matchmaking. Arsenal haven’t won anything in years and this fellow hasn’t lost. As crazy as it sounds why not put them together and see what happens?

The Scouser Report: Liverpool Pay A Heavy Price For Draw With Arsenal

Liverpool still have a shot at European play next season but, with the injury bug running rampant throughout the squad, it may be all they can do to hang on to sixth place.

I never know where my thoughts will take me but I was still rather surprised that Sir Alex Ferguson’s opposite-of-what-they-seem tactics in Saturday’s FA Cup clash between Manchester United and Arsenal brought to mind a soft-drink commercial from my youth.
