Heading Oba to the Gunners

Heading Oba to the Gunners

As many UFO fanatics have often claimed - there`s a conspiracy. It`s interesting that the week before Henry`s seemingly pre-planned move to Barcelona the papers were full of stories revealing that Oba Martins has a release clause within his contract. The fact that when Valencia and Juve were heavily linked to the forward this release clause managed to stay safely under wraps doesn`t go unnoticed. However when Wenger`s mob gets linked suddenly it becomes common knowledge.

The plot thickens when you read that Jonathan Barnett has become the player`s agent. This is the same Jonathan Barnett that has continually bled us dry with Kieron Dyer, aggravated for trouble with Richard Wright and was no way impartial when his client was being heavily linked with Leeds back in 2001/2002. I`ve a funny feeling I know where the release clause leak came from. 10% of any cut of £13m leads to one hell of a cosy year back in London.

The talk is that we`ll be offering Martins a new improved contract that rips up his current one with the get out clause in. However I`d take a sensible wager that Arsene has successfully unsettled our forward in the wake of Va Va Voom`s departure. Expect some more developments this week.

Barnett is also Ashely Cole's agent. Not a much loved figure around Arsenal either.

I'm not a Gooner lol, i just dont like Newcastle very much 'they think they are better than they are' if i was to support a team in the prem it would probably be boro, as at least they admit when they have a bad game, if i had to pick a team up north it would be Sunderland. I just think He would prefer to go to Arsenal, lets be honest who wouldn't. I quite like Alan Shearer though he is a pretty good bloke, just a shame about the rest of them Chavs

all over the back of the sun today, it states "Big sam wants martins to stay but knows he might ask to leave if a club of Arsenals stature makes a formal offer" what a kick in the teeth if he goes, i hope for your sake this is just paper speculation
