    Jack's career is most likely finished, basically. He will never reach his potential and will always be injured.

    Such a shame that he'll only realistically have 8 weeks of action before the Euros.

    Some sources are saying Elneny will be our only January signing. I guess if the injury crisis worsens in the final hours of the transfer window, we could always recall some of our loanees

    (The last player to transfer from Basel to an English club, we know what happened to him so let's hope Elneny hits the ground running. Plus he will be ineligible vs Barca as he played in Basel's CL play-off defeat.)

    According to this he'll be eligible.

    Funny how people are already judging this guy when they have most likely never seen him play a game live (I won't pretend to have either). If Wenger was signing him for £25mil you'd all be jizzing in your pants because price is all you have to go by atm.

    Can't wait for @clockender to bring up the fact he's only 74 on fifa as in depth scouting knowledge as to why he isn't arsenal qualiteeeee (will he take the bait? )

    Seriously though give the guy a chance to prove himself before you say it's a bad transfer.

    This is why Welbeck is one of our most important players.
    Welbeck may have a winning mentality in terms of attitude / quiet determination, but it doesn't matter at Arsenal, because he is surrounded by players who don't have it, and Welbeck won't ever inspire them to get it together. Cech and Sanchez are the most important in that respect, I would say. Still not enough though - I think you need a critical mass of winners in a team before the mentality catches on.

    My impression is that most players think if they put a bit of effort in they are in the clear because they can tell themselves "look at my stats / look at my shots / look how much I ran - I wasn't the problem / I tried". It's the equivalent of clock-watching at work.

    Loool, Welbeck has been here 12 months. Any "winning mentality" that he has is well and truly gone. In fact I highly doubt he has one anyway, being managed by Fergie doesn't mean you suddenly have a winning mentality. It isn't some trait that is either ticked or unticked on fifa.

    I can only see us winning today, nice that Giroud rested himself for 90 mins on Saturday so he'd be fresh to get a brace today...

    We've been getting linked to jese for months now, really hard to tell if it's a genuine transfer or not. Feels like Benzema 2.0

    It's like us with the likes of Jovetic and Silva, who we were linked with every single window for about two years until they signed for City.

    It's frustrating because it's a move I could see us doing, especially with Santi getting on and Wilshere showing no signs of improvement injury wise. Plus he is out of favour there. Ah well maybe next window

    We haven't seen him because he is garbage. He is not a star to come out of Basel like Shaqiri, Xhaka or even Salah. Nobody else wants to buy this guy he is not a top player I don't want to give him a chance we have given too many chances we need to buy established players.
