    No, he's been a decent player. This season he hasn't been great but overall he's been alright. Nowhere near one of our best signings, but certainly nowhere near the worst.

    Jose Bosingwa
    Have to agree, your username rather aptly describes my opinion every time he was named in the squad, albeit in a politer form.

    tbf, he was quality in the semi final second leg v Barcelona and he wasn't too bad in the CL final. But the rest of the time he was utter sh**e

    When Real Madrid bought Beckham to sell shirts and got rid of McManaman and Hierro also refusing to extend Makelele's contract whilst firing Del Bosque - worst move ever by Florentino Perez.
    Spot on! because Del Bosque had no style. :sigh:
    But i cant fault him for CR7!

    Mutu was a good player but had drug issues
    Bosingwa I largely but not wholly agree with
    Del Horno was good but overshadowed by A. Cole, think you've heard of him, which isn't difficult
    Deco was good when we signed him but was injury prone
    Kezman was unlucky but sh**
    Boulharouz was sh**
    I have no idea why you have Torres in there considering the importance of some of the goals he's scored, and considering he scored more than any Arsenal player, bar Van Perise, with in all likeleness having played far less
    Ferreira's been here 8 years...just no
    Shevchenko was unlucky
    SWP was quality...you're just being stupid here
    Tiago was quality...see above
    Veron was alright
    Crespo was alright
    Zhirkov was awesome...you're clearly trolling

    Let's evaluate Arsenal's signings...oh wait there are none

    When we buy players, we spot young guys and turn them into superstars. We don't just call our owner and ask for £50m for Torres

    I finally understand why Nicklas Bendtner thinks he's so good. There must be something in the water at the Emirates.

    For Southampton (not a fan but it deserves a mention) Ali Dia because he couldn't even play football and was signed by effectively a prank phone call
    This is one of the funniest things in all of football.

    Well Walcott isn't exactly a superstar, and players like Van Persie, Nasri etc were already pretty good for a start.

    Furthermore, Wenger insists his signings are quality but they turn out to be Koschielny, Squalici esque figures, and you refuse to pay big bucks yet spend way over the top on quality, but completely unproven players like Walcott and Chamberlain.

    All your doing is hiding behind a facade of self sustainabilty because you knwo you can't compete as your manager is on the whole useless in the transfer market and willing to settle for the odd trophy here and there

    Makes my eyes water looking back at the transfer. Guardiola must have been high at the time or thought he should wind people up. Shaktar are dumb as well for paying us that much for him. Would have paid them to take him off our hands if i was the chairman.
    Shakhtar made a €10 million profit on him (€25 million - €15 million) in a year. Is it really that 'dumb'?

    "Though Barcelona retained the title, Chygrynskiy fared poorly in his debut season with the club. Despite this, manager Josep Guardiola had been keen to keep him."

    That explains why they had to pay €15 million.

    Koscielny is a great defender, which you would presumably know if you watched football.

    Not sure if you actually believe that Wenger is useless in the transfer market or if you're just winding me up. In any case, Wenger has the best transfer record in the country. Fact.
