Arseblog News is now firmly of the opinion that Arsenal should shy away from signing or attempting to sign players with the surname Suarez.
First, there was the pursuit of Liverpool’s Luis that failed even though we rolled an extra one pound coin across the negotiating table.
Then came Denis, our ‘Hail Mary’ January signing from Barcelona whose most accomplished performance ended up being in a mid-season friendly in Dubai.
Honestly, we should draw the line there. Even if there’s a Suarez in a womb somewhere destined to become better than Messi, we don’t want to know, we’ll fuck it up somehow.
Anyway, we’re sort of ranting because it turns out that Denis knew he wasn’t fit when he signed in January and even after a few weeks in London was still nowhere near ready to deliver on his potential. Bear in mind we threw him on against Manchester City three days after he signed.
Eventually, the midfielder called time on his short stint at the Emirates prematurely although he did dig his club suit out for a supporting role in Baku.
Reflecting on a year to forget, the Spaniard told Cadena SER that he’s still trying to get fit and has no idea what his future holds.
“I’m still recovering from the injury, I’m practically fully recovered,” he said.
“On the 16th day of arriving at Arsenal I was not even 50 per cent, it was a year to forget but also to learn.
“I have been in Barcelona for two months recovering from the injury and nobody from Barca has told me anything.”
Anyway, as we were saying. No more Suarez, Suarezes, Suari, Suarites, or alike. No, thank you.
