Arsenal linked with another Barcelona starlet


In recent weeks Arsenal have been linked with Barcelona youngster, Julio Pleguezuelo Selva, a defender, but AS suggest the player is going to Chelsea while the Gunners have secured the services of another graduate from La Masia.

Josimar Quintero, a 16 year old Ecuadorian born right winger, is the player in question, but the situation is complicated by the fact both he, and Selva, share the same agent, Raúl Verdú.

Verdú informed Barcelona last month that the players would be rejecting the offers put before them in favour of a move to London, where they can sign professional terms a year earlier than in Spain.

It was this loophole which Arsenal exploited to sign Cesc Fabregas in 2004, and in recent times the Gunners have added Hector Bellerin and Jon Toral from the Spanish champions.

Both players have been linked to Chelsea, but AS insist that Selva will join Chelsea, Josimar will go to Arsenal, while Liverpool will complete the signing of another youth star, Sergi Canós.

Yeah. Fuck you Barcelona.

p.s. if he’s good, please don’t take him back 🙁


On the medical, can we check first if he has barca DNA….


We need to inject all our players with Gunner DNA


I myself was born a gooner. Blood, sheets, everything red. I was a gooner.

I’d rather it was the same Barcelona starlet as it was in 2004. We can hope!

This all seems very complicated, like Deal or no Deal, where us, Liverpool and Chelsea all picked a box at random and ended up with a player. Hopefully we got the jackpot this time, and they ended up with 1p, or a piece of fluff.

We can never be sure of what they’ll get in terms of quality, I guess, …. unless we perhaps give them Giroud?

Get out while you still can!

Anyone who’s played Football Manager 2012 will know what a prolific scorer a certain “Quintero” could be. That clearly means we should sign the guy up, right?



FM12 didn’t lie about Messi turning out to be good though, so we should sign ’em up!

Jack's Right Foot


New guy

Jack’s Right Foot! I’ve been wondering where you were, or if you even existed.


Sanago’s not bad either


According to a quick cross referencing of major search engines on the web this guy is the 920th player said to be moving to Arsenal this summer.


Should try searching what percentage of Barcelona youngsters are linked to a move to England.


Bloody love taking these young guys from Barca… That’s what they get for tapping up our players the cunts 🙂


I hope we fuck Barcelona out of a talented player and he never comes back to them and we can see Sandra throwing a hissy fit at us for ‘poaching’ their precious, endangered youngsters.

My only genuine concern would be that we piss off the powers that be over at the Nou Camp and they do us over by selling Fabregas to our rivals.


We have first-choice on Cesc leaving Barca. I think after RVP, we will never let United sign any of our players. And I am counting Fab as one of us.

Arty's Art

True, fuck them!

I’d enjoy for him to come home.


Buy low and sell high, new club’s motto.

What small/medium clubs do.


Can we also resign Fabregas? He is still my favorite player, and we need another creative player. There is no one better in that position than Fabregas. That’s why he has the number 10 shirt for Spain.

Arty's Art

And how do you propose one ‘resign’ Fabregas?


By throwing bags of money at the cunts at Barcelona. Not the most exciting prospects.

Arty's Art

And that would make Fabregas ‘resign’, why would you want that. He is a great footballer. I hope he plays for years and years. I’d even love him to re-sign for Arsenal.


I meant re-sign for God’s sake.

Merlin's Panini

Expert pedantry there. Lovely stuff.

Parisian Weetabix

I would imagine the dislikes are from confused people who didn’t get the joke 😉


Blogs – you’re a man often in the know (e.g. David Villa). Any thoughts on the many Higuain rumours?


No response means deal done or almost done… Never ask who’s in the know if they know because you will get no answer

Arty's Art

Or, most likely, it means he doesn’t take the question seriously…

Arsene's stylist

Bloggs is so much in the know, he’ll answer your question from INSIDE the know.

That’s fucking with my head!

We won’t get Higuain. Quite simply, he’d be well overpriced. Cost much more than how good he actually is. While I hope we spend a bit more this summer I still don’t think it’s ever worth buying overpriced players – especially when you don’t need to. That’s the kind of shit that Abramovich works and its completely retarded.

Vega Scott

A million a week would work.


Awesome. As long as it infuriates Barcelona


Forget about him being a good prospect, e.t.c we should tie up the deal just coz barcelona didn’t say so….


Any takers for Wayne Rooney?


Get him a granny house as part of the deal.


Well, let’s see. He’s a dislikeable troll with his pubes glued onto his head.



When’s the puma deal gonna be announced officially?


Totally out of topic sorry. But yeah I’m curious to know if anyone has any inside knowledge.


No announcement as of yet but the deal is pretty much done.


Wayne rooney pleaaasssseeeee…. Just so we could fuck one over them….pleeeaassee

nii amartey

yeah, that story from skysports… totally a non story… i dont see how this journalist stretch interviews like this to get such headlines. whats even more annoying are the comments that it would be a step down for him if he comes.(which is total bull.s. btw)


Why are any goons creaming themselves over bullshit Rooney story’s????
First of all he is a cunt
Second how could we pay his wages
Third his name is shrek
And last but not least he is a cunt

Touched Your Mother

He looks like he’s 12… and people pushing for Rooney, just stop, John Terry might be a good defender, but I would never want to see him in an Arsenal shirt, that standard doesn’t change for Shrek, Suarez, or any other cunt. If we are going to spend that kind of money on a player I would hope it would be for Cesc, and either Higuain or Jovetic.


Don’t want that Chav at my club. And if you think we are going to pay anywhere near 200k plus a week in wages then il have whatever happy pills your on.


And if we get fucked over tonight we have more chance of signing mickey Rooney than Wayne.


Good chance of that happening with Mike (I have it in for Arsenal) Dean refereeing it tonight.

Arty's Art

NO. Seriously. Is it Mike Dean?

Arsene Wenger


‘Mike Dean has been something of a lucky referee for the Latics, he was in charge of our 2-1 victory over Sheffield United on the last day of the 2006/07 season, he was also the ref for two memorable games at the DW Stadium, the 3-2 win over Arsenal when we scored two goals in teh last five minutes of teh game, and also the more dramatic win over West Ham when we were 2 down at half time in May 2011, a great performance that day from both the Latics and the referee’

Apparantly we have won only once in seventeen matches against Wigan which he has refereed (in the comments section).


Oh no, we won 1 game in the last 3 years with him bein ref,

Eric Irish gunner

Oh no, he’s a proper cunt with a face you’d like to do the river dance on


Why did i get thumbs down man? I didnt say i wanted him….im so upset.

Seriously though, does anyone else believe that hes already peaked?

I dont think this will ever…EVER happen. I know we have money and i know we need players but im against buying an Ogre and paying him 200k a week.

This story is classic sensationalism by the Sun. AW asked about transfers thia summer. Replies basically i dont wanna talk about it, after Newcastle game. Pressed further if we’d be in for someone of Rooneys calibre. AW replies somethig like ‘ I just told you!’.

Then somehow this represents Arsene as being ‘ Coy on Rooney’…..Please just fuck off and report something truthfull. Or at least something that is possible.


Arsene: ‘I don’t want to discuss that. I’m just focusing on the next two games’



We can’t afford his wages. End of.

Arty's Art

I gave it a thumbs down to indicate my opinion on the subject, not against the question!

Thumbs down = Fuck Rooney the fat wanker


If we signed Shrek and Arsenal have a good season there is a real possibility England could start Jenks, Gibbs, Ox, Theo, Jack and Rooney in the starting 11 for the World Cup.

Not bad for a club/manager not interested in home grown talent.



If we DON’T sign Shrek and Arsenal have a good season there is a real possibility England could start Jenks, Gibbs, Ox, Theo, and Jack in the starting 11 for the World Cup.

Not bad for a club/manager not interested in home grown talent.


Am i the only one who couldn’t care less about Shrek or another Barca starlet right now.

I’m sitting here watching the clock tick waiting to watch us play Wigan.



Btw. Fabregas came in 2003 when he was 16…10 years ago. Hopefully the 10th anniversary of his arrival will be marked by his second coming
