Maybe Brendan is trying to convince himself. You know, those moments when somewhere in your brain you keep repeating the mantra – “I’m winning the lottery this time” or “I’m prettier than Johnny Depp”.
But then again, maybe Bitey-Suarez is staying put at Liverpool and we haven’t got a chance in the world to lure him to our lair. I mean, Liverpool are doing well, maybe far better than we expected and who’s to say they’re not going to have a ‘bite’ at Champions League football next season?
“I understand why Arsenal would want to buy a player of Luis’s quality because he is one of the leading strikers in the world but it was something that was never going to happen,” he said. “For us and the institution we are we certainly weren’t going to sell to a rival, a competitor, and that was something which was very strong from the off.
And with that, Brendan Rogers comes to the righteous conclusion that Luis Suarez is going nowhere. ‘Cuz he doesn’t want to; ‘cuz they won’t let him. But then again, who’s to say who moves and who doesn’t?
Arsenal’s been touted alternatives like Pato, the wonder-kid of those days; the dude’s only 24 years old and it seems he’s been around since Bobby Charlton. I wouldn’t want the risk of another injury prone wonder-kid, or would you? We’ve got Yaya Sanogo already, no need bringing upon ourselves the curse of the Abou Diaby.
I’ll leave you with this though, Arsenal need more than just a back-up striker; we need a lethal striker, someone to pair up with Giroud. We also need Frimpong or some-player else to step up and cover for Flamini when he or Arteta aren’t available. You could see the lack thereof in our games with Dortmund and Chelski.

Now, onto Yaya-not-Sanogo Toure, which may I add, falls under ‘Other News’.
Offering Yaya a role in the Fifa anti-racism task-force seems like a bribe or an indirect way of saying , “Here, have this, I’m sorry”. Not that Yaya deserves no apologies, he does, completely; but FIFA’s move seems like the kind of favour a politician gives a fundraiser/partner-in-funds after winning an election. Nigerians know what I’m talking about. (PS: It happens the world over.)
If Yaya does accept this offer, we hope he’ll be part of the team that makes a lasting impact in the bid to stop racism from deflating our football.
