Gilberto Silva advises Cesc Fabregas to stay and Pienaar thanks Wenger

Honestly, I still believe our commander-in-chief at the Emirates has bought or preferably signed whom he thinks the club needs, irrespective of what is been said or done, in acknowledgement to his absence.

Anyway transfer speculation business won't be as lucrative, interesting or boring as the case may be, if our old-man attempts to let the cat out of the bag, in respect to the real intakes.

The media gurus who are well paid, manufacture the stories from their imaginative rumour mills, and to be exact, we the bloggers in order to remain relevant in our respective niches fuel the speculative stories to fever pitch levels, until we achieve our intended objective.

An unwelcome development it is. But speaking of transfer rumours; if you ask me, "I basically won't object to their circulation," not because it doesn't bother me, but for the simple reason that truth only exists to expose lies.

So, if you are amongst those, that are uncomfortable with the background happenings precisely within the gooner nation. Please bear with us! And afford the gooner's diverse team of expert transfer analysts the comfort of eight weeks to thrash out the details of your thoughtful complaint.

Today's transfer headlines are a bit more reserved and unusually complimentary in nature, save for a few speculative ones. Let me finish! they aren't included here (for the time being), and for the purpose of clarity.

Personally, my take for the week will definitely be Gilberto silva's comment on why he thinks, Arsenal must fight to keep their coveted midfielder Cesc Fabregas, away from the greedy hands of some Catalan mugs who are believed to have bragging rights that concern his future at the Emirates.

The 33-year-old former Epl star who joined Greek giants Panathinaikos from Arsenal some moons ago for a reported fee of £1m, urged the youngster to commit his long term future to Arsenal and in the same vein he advised the club to fight Barcelona to a standstill over the unending pursuit.

He told Sky Sports News that he would like to see Fabregas at the Emirates next season: "I hope he stays: He is a big person and must ask himself and think carefully if he has to go or not.

"But of course the final decision (is something) he has to do. In case this situation happens, it will be a big blow for Arsenal."

Meanwhile, South Africa international Steven Pienaar has expressed his heart felt gratitude to Arsene Wenger. The Bafana Bafana star, whose experience and influence fellow team-mates are relying on to inspire them to World Cup greatness, termed the manager' words as "flattering" and promised not to relent on his steady progress.

Pienaar said: "It is always flattering that one of the best managers in the World says kind things about you.
I am grateful to Wenger, but my aim is the same: keep improving."

Stephen Pienaar's contract at Everton is due to run out next year, which is a very good pointer for Wenger - that is if he's really interested in the midfielder's services. Athough I strongly believe Peter Hill-Wood and Ivan Gazidis won't contemplate the idea of competing with Manchester City and Tottenham for the rated £15m playmaker.
