Cazorla signs - the irony as Malaga implode



It is a done deal.  Hopefully it will quieten some of those incessant whingers who seem to love doing the club and manager down.  There is no doubt, this is a big signing, both financially and in terms of quality.  The really interesting thing will be if we add any other big names before the window is done.  Cazorla is quick, sharp, two-footed and can play anywhere across the midfield, he has a very decent goal scoring record too.

There is also a great irony here, a loud minority of Arsenal fans seem strangely keen to have a certain Alisher Usmanov involved with our football club, meanwhile Malaga have been shafted by their rich owner, a lesson we should learn from I would say, also take note, Stan Kroenke and the board are showing their intent.

I will wait and see what happens in the final few weeks of the window before casting judgement, but I have to say that the signings of Cazorla, Podolski and Giroud are extremely encouraging indeed.

a new club record then. a friend who lives in spain gives rave reports about him. bit worried about the song to barca rumours. i can only think if we sell song then we'll have to go big again and probably sign m'villa.

According to the Malaga CF website, Santi Cazorla doesn't have a Twitter-profile. He's just listed with a facebook profile. While Julio Baptista is listed with only a Twitter-profile and not on facebook. I wouldn't be 100 per cent sure that the comments on what looks to be his own Twitter-profile, is genuine.

Many reputable sources are reporting deal done including L'Equipe and others.

It's a great signing and I also expect a LB to come in soon as Andre Santos won't be playing there too often next season I think. It's a better preseason than last years fiasco by any means.
