Oba and Out for the Arse?

Having fretted about Oba Martins heading for the Emirates it looks as if we might have been a little quick off the mark here at Vital Newcastle. Arsene Wenger looks set today to sign striker Rodrigo Palacio, who plays for Boca Juniors for a whopping £15m, ruling out any kitty money being left to hit Oba`s £13m release clause. Good news for the club who can now find sneaky ways to get rid of that clause in his contract and prevent any more hassle for when the window opens in January.

Great news.

I don't believe Wenger ever wanted Owen or Martins, however the press were always going to link both players because they both have buyout clauses & we were clearly looking for a striker. I seriously doubt there is any truth in the Palacio rumour either which was started on a Boca fan blog. You really shouldn't have been worrying about this all summer!!

whether or not arsenal get palacio I really dont see wenger buying Martins. its just another media frenzy for lazy journos. wenger has only ever willingly bought one foreign player from an English club and that was Mart Poom from Sunderland. I say willingly since Gallas was forced across from Chelsea.

I think we'll get that release clause removed by October and it'll all be sorted.
