    The FA cup IS more difficult to win though, because of the better teams that clubs put out. Therefore it's a slightly more respectable trophy to win. Still nothing on a PL or CL though of course.

    Agreed with sev about arteta though. I don't want him in the first team this season but he's a good experienced and intelligent player to have in the dressing room, and as a backup/rotation option too.

    Actually think Alexis Sanchez runs Giroud very close in the vanity scales. Taking Giroud's place in the team and in the level of vanity :lol: . A quick search on Google shows entire google search image sections devoted to his "shorts" and "six pack". He is also best mates with his barber... who apparently broke the transfer news of his move to us lol.

    Can't make this stuff up lol. Guys already an Arsenal legend in my eyes ha.

    Kadira's injury record "During four years at Real, Khedira has missed a total of 68 games through injury."

    And he hasn't even come across the physicality of the BPL lol. Real gamble with him if he really sticks to his wage demands too.

    I got a feeling we'll hit the £100m mark this summer, £40m on two, maybe three players.

    I think its just Carvalho now. Dont think we're in for a striker at all. Chambers seems to be a Verm replacement not a Sagna replacement (which is fine because Verm barely featured in important matches anyway). which leaves debuchy and young hector for RB. makes sense, instead of having 3 RBs

    also people who criticise Arteta so much.

    It was our ability to be flat track bullies (id say we were one of the most consistent and best flat track bullies) that got us within 7 points of the title. Arteta was crucial to those games. Even against Hull in the final, there strategy was to disrupt arteta and prevent him from playing his game, and it worked, which shows how important he is. Take away arteta, and you might do better against the bigger teams, but not against the likes of Burnley, Crystal Palace and West Brom where is intelligence will be crucial.

    agreed his one twos with the back 4 are vital and nobody in world football picks a better pass over 10 yards than him

    We've ALWAYS been flat track bullies, long before Arteta even got here. Take his sideways passing out of the team and we'll be fine.

    His legs had already gone last season and seeing a 36 year old Henry run past him for fun two weeks ago was just too much.

    It was our inability to have a proper defensive/holding midfielder which saw us get slapped time and time again against the proper teams. Our midfield was non existent in those games, but if you want to continue getting beats because Mikel is our DM and offers absolutely no protection whatsoever, fine by me, just don't be vex when it happens again and again.

    Allow that overused Kermit picture, it was funny for about an hour, but now it's just stupid.

    A lot of teams last year focussed on hassling Arteta because he's actually quite poor under pressure. He's not strong enough to hold onto the ball when being chased down and is too slow to recover.

    lets agree to disagree.

    when arteta leaves (end of this season?) people will see how important he was to us. Like all great artists under appreciated in his time. You know what just like Gilberto who never got enough credit either.

    Indeed. Which is why we could do without another injury prone player

    And the season before. Rooney at old trafford and Oscar at the emirates spring to mind.

    More news from Tony Leen..

    He said that he has received heads up that we have tabled a bid for Carvalho, but if asked about it we'll probably deny it.

    So basically he's made it up, then when Arsenal call it bull**** he's covered himself...

    Nope he's been giving reliable news about through the Carvalho bid. Usually whenever we make a bid for a player, and if it's asked Wenger will always deny.
