Arsenal have officially announced the signing of Bacary Sagna from French outfit Auxerre for a rumoured to be £6m, possibly rising to £7.5m depending on the usual things like trophies won, clean shieets, goals scored, how many times we beat the spuds next year, etc.

The 24 year old French national, born to Senegalese parents, will be setting his sights on representing France in the Euros, which are fast approaching, and what better way to do that than playing for North London’s finest.

Sagna told Arsenal.com, ‘It’s amazing. If someone had told me that one day I would be an Arsenal player I would not have believed him. I am very happy for my family, my friends and also for my future. It is really a positive move.’

‘I think this is one of the best English sides, the one that plays the best football. The fact that it is a young team and there is high-quality training are extra positives compared to other English teams.’

So we’ve strengthened the defence, we give Eboue a reason to keep his concentration up til the final whistle sounds and we’ve got a bloke who’s name sounds very much like Lasagne, which I’m sure Gooners will take to their hearts from the off, for the scope it’ll give them to bring the famous chant out for the spuds.

next up, a wing wizard???

  • where does this signing leave the futures of Eboue and justin hoyte? do you think one or both futures are in doubt?

  • oxfordspur, we’re all hoping that Justin and Eboue will both stay at the club, as what the one offers in attacking flair, the other makes up for in assured defending. »»Arsene Knows««

  • people said the same thing about toure, vieira and a whole world of other players when they arrived at arsenal cockeril…. those people dont say much these days… good luck with the uefa cup btw! 🙂

  • ox Sp*r, you probably one of the guys that said cecs who? you so gonna regret you said that. he a utility player, plays in all defence positions and midfield. wonder where we gonna use him?

  • I think the headline back in 1996 was “Arsene Who” aswell Cock-muncher. Ever heard of Anelka, Toure, Fabregas, Vieira, Petit before they came? nah didnt think so. I bet you knew of Assou-Ekotto, Ghaly, Rocha and the rest of the piles of s h i t that have passed through shoebox city tho enit.

  • Eboue is a right back and has to learn to compete cause with Hleb in the world of Arsenal there NO way he’s gonna move or get pushed forward.

  • Ain’t it funny how the first comments about our new signings always come from spuds… it’s getting a bit obsessive now don’t you think? we don’t have to justify our signings to any of you so why don’t crawl back to your site or hole…whichever you prefer

  • my mate in france who’s a auxerre supporter and followed bacray during his time at auxxere, rates bacray as a top top player, and believes he will be better than ralph, dixo and manu. the lad is extremely quick and a powerhouse from what i’ve heard of him from my mate, i can’t wait for the season to start now..

  • luckys_10 I would be interested to hear your friends view on Kaboul, who as you know we also got from Auxiere

  • the ******** spuds aint got nothing to do but show up their ugly heads here.. no matter how much history has proven to them.. they will never accept that they were, are and will remain the lesser mortals in london.. they are doomed for that.. they might do a chelski and sign loads of players at crap prices. but they’ll still finish 5th.. its their fate.. its their destiny..

    anyways.. this bloke sagna.. i’ve been watching him for a while.. ever since rumours were abound.. the bloke’s extremely quick and very very strong.. can play anywhere across the back four and even as a defensive midfielder.. amazing talent.. cant wait for the new season to begin.. dunno what wenger plans to do with eboue.. perhaps promote him to the right winger slot.. any ideas..

  • Its unfair to label all the spuds fans as some of them have made sensible comments or asked normal questions. Its only one or two like the cock who come on here to try & start trouble!! Pretty pathetic really!!

  • Topspur1, apparently Kaboul is a better version of Dawson. Doesn’t have the strength of king but but at 21 can easily improve that. He is particularly good in the air!!
