Arsenal get Silvestre, Manchester City get Kompany – what the ….?

While Arsenal bagged a 31-year old defender who couldn’t make the grade at their fiercest title rivals, Manchester City went ahead and snapped up one of the hottest young defenders in Europe.

Something tells me that someone messed things up here. You’d expect Kompany to be going to Arsenal, Silvestre heading to City.


Has Wenger made a mistake or did he get it right and we’ll see Silvestre in the form of his life this season?

Have City pulled off another transfer coup (2 out of 3, what with Jo coming and Ronaldinho not) or is this going to be a dud signing?
