Wenger hands J.Y Park the Arsenal number 9 shirt

65

Arsenal have confirmed the signing of South Korean international Chu Park Young in a deal which is thought to be worth around £3.5 million.

Arsene Wenger had revealed in the aftermath of Sunday’s defeat at Old Trafford that the striker would be arriving from French side Monaco after press reports circled that the 26-year-old had called-off a medical with Lille.

Speaking about his move to the Emirates, Park, who has been given the number 9 shirt and prefers to go by the name ‘Ju’, stated:

“I am very honoured and I feel very happy to be at Arsenal. It is a dream to be here and I am really proud to be an Arsenal player. Now I just want to show how good I am and prove myself.

“In my opinion this is a great club, now I have to show what I can do on the pitch. I will do my best, I will never give up, I will show heart, I will give everything and I hope [the fans] will support me.”

Speaking about his latest acquisition, Wenger stressed that the captain of the South Korea national side would bring quality to his squad:

“We are delighted to have signed Chu. He will add true quality to our attacking forces and will be a valuable addition to the squad.”

Park’s place in the Arsenal squad looks likely to come at the expense of Nicklas Bendtner who is thought to be on the verge of a long-awaited exit. The Dane is strongly tipped to join Stoke City, although there has been no confirmation of an official approach.

tagar

can u tell me what is DEEEENCH?

I like denches

…I’s just another way of saying bench, but with a ‘d’ instead of a ‘b’… bench means really good

Sabrina

According to Frimpster it’s means anything good.

Dazza

It’s how to say “that’s good” if you are a retard.

Auslaender

Dazza, lol

Arcane

nice,keep them coming in.

LGuardie

He’s a Gunner now and has a lot of love for Arsenal so he’s got my full support!

chris

Good buy and he can’t be too bad if the French champions wanted him. But this signing could be a stop gap though as he would have to do national service in a couple of years. But it is the hear and now that counts.

raver

#DEEEENCH!

Jon

JY Park? Chu Park Young? Am I missing the joke or has Andrew spelt Park’s name wrong?

Jon

Nevermind, just read the article on Arsenal.com

freakstreet

apparently he prefers to be called Ju and not Chu. Hence the JY Park on the shirt

Chris

If he makes 10 league starts I’ll be gobsmacked.

LC gooner

seems someone has faith in van persies ankles :p

TexasGooner6

Watch his video, he will play the Arshavin role on the wing. Can play creative mid as well. He scores goals but facilitates more.

One John Hawley

Excuse me if I dont cum in my pants over this signing. Are we also going to play this guy out of position. The board have some serious questions to answer but they will never be honest. let’s face it we are only the supporters.

fuck off one john hawley

CRY MORE!!! DOOOOM OH WOE IS ME DOOOOOOM ITS ALL OVER! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM

One John Hawley

Not at all. Actually we are only one point worse off against the same teams as last season. Why do we have to fight amongst ourselves and react with fuck off and calling each other cnuts for not agreeing with something that has been said. I merely pointed out that if he was a reaplcement for Bendtner are we also going to play him out of position. If I can’t even make that comments well I let the rest of you get on with it.

Kp

DEEEEEEENCH DEEEEEEENCH

One John Hawley

Can someone confirm whether RVP and Theo have two years left on their contracts???

GM

As someone with no sources at Arsenal and no personal relationship with the players, agents or negotiating team involved I’m afraid cannot confirm whether this is the case, sorry.

Auslaender

Yes, they do. Which means that RVP will not be here next season. No way Arsene is going to offer a good last contract to a 29 yo with Robie’s injury history

number9

Oh no arsenal gave him the cursed no.9 shirt!

iddi

true true true that number 9 is cursed!!

Edward M Chukwurah

So you noticed too, huh?

Earl of Cunt-erbury

“I will do my best, I will never give up, I will show heart, I will give everything………” this I can’t argue with, am sure his work rate will be superb…I hope same ethos rub-on to a certain Russian fella!

Fed up of Barca

I hope he’s good

BUt the cynic in me says this is screaming Asia money maker

tagar

@I like denches: thanks

Jackaz

RVP and Theo are both in the last year of their current contracts. Just wait for those two sagas to start in January.

Lord Teddy Ears

No way shit lets get on the bus to Man City and fill Stan’s pockets with some more money !!!

Lord Teddy Ears

LETS GET THEM ON THE BUS !!!

Chris

Both players have 2 years on their contracts remaining. thus they should be looking to be re-signed in the next 12 months. However, if I was either player, I wouldn’t sign until I could be sure where the club was going.

I doubt Robin will re-sign. I wouldn’t if I was him.
But then again I’m not him am I.

Jay

For all of Arshavin’s talent, he will never help out his fullbacks and tack back, Ju will finally offer us that commitment for the full 90 minutes, and is technically very good, so is a great signing for us. Ju, and Ryo will offer us two extremely hard working wingers, our team needs that urgency and hunger to win the ball back instilled in them, defend from the front, and not stop til the final whistle.

That is all, I’m off.

Midfield Corporal

To the tune of ‘much to much’ by the specials.

He’s Chu young park
Park Chu young
I’d let him walk my dog
But he’d eat him in a bun

Midfield Corporal

For teeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Score a goal fo me

GM

Amusing but essentially racist and insulting to a man who captains the nation it makes fun of. We’re not Northern.

Chris

Brilliant. It’s not racist. It’s post modern

Midfield Corporal

I don’t think it’s racist to make light of a cultural difference. We don’t want to be too precious.

NoLookPass

What do culture differences have to do with football?

mattpenhaligon

It’s not racist, it’s simply a western misconception. I live in Korea, you can eat dog, but it’s pretty hard to come by, it’s actually illegal. As for the player, my Korean friends can’t believe he’s signed for us, apparently he’s a showboating twat. But then, two of my Korean friends support Bolton so what do they know!

GM

Could be our Dirk Kuyt.

Truegooner

Keep ’em cumming, Arsene

Jamie

Can’t say I know him to well, but hope he does well! If he turns out anything like Park Ji Sung, it’ll be a smart buy.

Rectum Spectrum

exactly. if he’s anywhere near a battling, energetic and possitive as park its a top top buy for 3m. i’m sure theres a lot more business to come so i can enjoy this signing.

I Bleed Red

In an slightly unrelated matter … DEEEEEEEEEEEENCH!!!!!!!

sJ

it feels good eh? 😀

Rectum Spectrum

Park Jin-young (Hangul: 박진영, Hanja: 朴軫永, born January 13, 1972) also known as J.Y. Park (or simply JYP) is a singer, songwriter, dancer, record producer and the current CEO and founder of JYP Entertainment, a major artist management/record label of Korean pop music.

oh fuck.

Arseprof

I’m to fill with to much joy at the face we have signed him. His record as a forward/striker in France isn’t great 25 goals in 90 odd games in 3 years, doesnt sound to prolific. But if he gives 100% in every game like Park (Man u) I’ll take him over Arshavin any day. I havent seen him play so I’ll reserve my judgement until then, but looking at his stats it looks like a cheap fix to our forward line that needs real quality.

Arseprof

* not filled with to much joy

Matty

Park chu young is arsenal number 9! La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la Park chu young is arsenal number 9!

Topher18

I relish this signing, coz it’s exactly that, a signing!! But shouldn’t we be looking for midfielders to fill the massive gaps left by Fab and Na$ri!! Especially as the ones we have can’t keep fit for more than 5 seconds…. (yes I’m looking at you Diaby)?

Goonersville

To the tune of the conga song ..
Ju Ju Ju better than nick bendtner
Ju Ju Ju he’ll eat your Labrador

Taxi !!

Smelly Ali.

Oh that’s funny, made me laugh,,,Taxi!!

Midfield Corporal

Very good, I like the unexpected change of direction.

manfredi

great, he is a really good player with a great workrate. I see him as playing just behind RVP or maybe wenger plays him out of position on the left instead of the lazy russian.

its a good signing guys…

per mertesacker would be fantastic addition to our defense, and if we can seal the deal of one or two more players we wont loose with six goals the next 100 years

Stepanovs is my Dad...

“PARK, NOW, WHEREVER YOU MAY BE…

YOU EAT DOGS IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY..”

Oh.

Wait.

D’oh!

Bendigo Shafter

Uninspired.

Not quite a second hand Citroen but definitely not a Mercedes Benz.

So when a game is not going our way and we need to throw on a game-changing forward to make the difference and grab a goal we are going to put on Juy? Where is he going to play Park? Up front and centre or by the swings?

Hmmm……is this the best that could be done with the funds available?

“Oh Lord, won’t you buy us a Mercedes Benz….”

Uncle pats rice

To the tune of candy statons young hearts –

Oh young park .. Runs free
He will never be a cunt … A cunt
Like nasri

Professor Plum

To the tune of The Specials ‘too much too young’

He’s park chu young, park chu young
He dont like the yids
He has to join up with the army

Professor Plum

I hope im wrong, but i have a bad feeling about this one………..

Professor Plum

Let’s all get behind the lad

[…] Chu-Young, the South Korean captain was officially unveiled yesterday by the club, and given the no.9 shirt, which is historically jinxed […]
