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.
