Arsene rarely gets it wrong in the transfer market so the idea that he finds it hard to sleep because he missed out on Wigan’s £10m rated Wilson Palacios is a little hard to swallow.
Arsene Wenger strongly recommended Honduras international Palacios to Steve Bruce after the 23-year-old didn’t make the grade after having given the trials at Emirates stadium. Now it appears that Manchester United want Wilson in the summer and it will be the latest of a string of ex-Gunners trialists to win moves to big clubs, including Barcelona midfielder Yaya Toure and Olympiacos’ Marco Ne.

My God, what will Arsene do (sarcasm)? I mean, this can’t be serious. Palacios is good but he isn’t that good! I very much doubt he would get a look in at Arsenal, anyway, and I would personally be mighty surprised if Sir Alex signed him. If he did, he would be nothing more than a squad player.
