Fabulous Fabian?

After a quiet Summer it looks like it's going to be a busy couple of days for the Premiership Champions. Uruguayan international keeper Fabian Carini has been signed by Arsène Wenger on a years loan from Juventus; and World Cup winner Gilberto Silva has confirmed that he will (probably) be moving to Arsenal. Both players impressed at the World Cup and Wenger has described Carini as a player with ‘outstanding natural ability and a great temprament’.

Gilberto Silva is looking forward to his £4.5m move;

“Vieira is a tremendous player and maybe I could even play alongside him. It would be fantastic to play against the likes of David Beckham again.”

I suspect that both players will turn out to be good buys, though I'm not really sticking my neck out suggesting that Wenger may have signed a successful player for a bargain fee.

Blackburn have finally got their way with Man Utd over Dwight Yorke. Knowing that United have to cut their wage bill, Graeme Sourness kept his cool and has signed the thirty-year old for a cut price £2m. Bearing in mind that less than a fortnight ago Sir Alex said that it was £6m or nothing, he's done well.

That is if Yorke can produce something like the form of a couple of years ago and not turn up as the lazy, distracted player he's been more recently. For someone who's supposed to be a strict disciplinarian, someone who'll sort out any wayward player, Fergie hasn't done the best job with Yorke, or recent departure Danny Webber.

Lee Bowyer is covering his bases now that Liverpool have decided he's more trouble than he's worth. He now says that he might want to stay and play for Leeds — though he's yet to sign a new contract. Some say that he's holding out for a move back to London, Arsenal in particular. I have to say that I doubt that'll happen though, bearing in mind Arsène Wengers dedication to only signing players with the right attitude.
