    oh.

    i hope we get someone unknown from Ligue 2.

    since the arrival of ozil, sanchez and spending £26m on rightbacks in one window, I just hope Arsene doesn't stray too far from his roots.
    We did £30m net last summer, and this summer because of Cesc/Vela/Djourou/Vermaelen we're at about £23m net whilst absolutely taking an ax to the dead wood on the wage bill.

    We've got more cash reserves than any club in Europe though Wenger-nomics and just upgraded our sponsor deals by £50m/annum.

    We've spent peanuts in other words. But Wenger's biggest talent is recognising unspotted talent so I hope he keeps looking at those gems too

    It's a shame really though..

    Verm was sucha good back up CB to have, and was a really good leader too (when he was a regular)

    Poor guy just had a serious dip in form and just couldn't find any way to break the kosc - merta partnership. A player of his quality needs game time to pick up his form again..

    Ah well, I think a move away suits all parties here.

    Also, isn't it an initial £10m offer from barca, and then united put in a better offer for £15m?

    Edit: scrap that last part ^^ I just saw the updates on sky lol

    So now Arsene's going to have to buy a defender, if he can't, would be push Coquelin to defence or promote from the reserves (Bellerin, Miquel, Hayden)?
    Miquel is terrible he shouldn't be anywhere near Arsenal. Hayden is good but it may still be a little bit too soon for him to be in the first team.

    CB must be lined up as Vermaelen has been on his way out for ages.

    Then a DM and it's a good window

    We were linked with both Nastasic and Schar a few weeks ago. Ornstein did say earlier that we are looking at a player who can play both CB & DM, which points to Carvalho.

    I just know Demba Ba is going to bang in a couple of goals against us in the play off, He scored a hatrick in their other match.

    Sad about Verm, He's a good defender I hope he does well at Barca. He was an absolute beast for us 11/12

    He had something like 5 goals by October I think? For a defender that was hard! He was so good at pressing forward

    He did, he loves our club.
    He has been a great serving, but his injuries have hindered his career.

    Personally I would love him to go back to Brondby; would be nice to captain and end his career there.
    However I think we'd get more money from a bigger club.

    yes

    Would wait until the first leg is over to decide if you want to go. Odds are well smash them 4-0 like last year and then the stadium will be empty/quiet and you'll be watching the reserves for £30. CL qualifiers are tedious affairs.

    Will also be shedloads of Turks from the area in the hom end acting the maggot, and I cant stand that.

    Bendtner on a free, we should be on that. Since no one is going to sign him we can pay him like £10k a week a pack of Snickers.

    That's about a 10k a week and a pack of snickers too much.

    Man wouldn't even get a freddo in this economy.

    We avoided Bilbao, and they were the only tricky opponent so we'll take it! They're not even the best team in Turkey, we really should be looking to put 4/5 past them over 2 legs. Unless the atmosphere is crazy in Istanbul or something and the players just freeze of course, and even then we have the home leg after if needed!
