    We got 53/60 available points not sure if it was 17-2-1 but that sounds accurate. We need to maintain that (or very slightly improve it) and improve vs the top teams ((the draws vs Swansea (not top 10 but still), Everton and Southampton from winning positions would have put us 1 point off top and we should have won those games)).


    I reckon we'll get 83 points this season, don't think it will be enough though.
    I checked and it was 17-2-1 (loss against Villa in our first game).

    If we go for 17-2-1 against bottom 10, then that is 53 points.
    Against the top ten if we go for maybe 10-5-3, that is 35 points.

    I reckon 88 points would be enough for us to clinch the title, and 27-7-4 is an achievable target.

    Jesus, 6-6-6? I guess that explains our problems, we are satanically cursed.

    I wouldn't want an out-and-out DM because that restricts our creative capabilities. I think we got destroyed in big games because Wenger was suicidal and decided to stick to playing a high line, thus pitting Mertesacker against players like Hazard and Sturridge. I think we should just play more defensively in big games and grind, possibly with Chambers converted to CDM as coverage for Mertesacker in games where we need to grind (against you lot or Chelsea, Liverpool etc). The City game showed us that, even though their team was weakened, as long as we can play a solid defense, we should win almost every game.

    I doubt they would want £40m. If the buyout clause is true, then they would ask for a lot less in an attempt to desperately make as much money as possible. Why would someone pay that much if they could wait a year and pay £20m, half as much?
    Perhaps not a full DM but someone like Schneiderlin who will offer more cover than Arteta, and there's always Flamini if you do need it at some point. Chambers at CDM is interesting, I didn't watch enough Southampton to know if he could convert but maybe. It could lead to the Phil Jones problem though.

    With most clubs yeah, but Dortmund are different. They let Lewa's contract run down to get an extra year rather than sell him and get 15-20m.

    Is it just cos you space your lines out?

    I guess it makes it look like you have a lot to say.

    A List helps too.
    pads the post out.
    makes it look longer.
    gives the illusion of facts and evidence.

    and then at the end people can realise

    Absolute morons is the phrase I would use. BVB are the footballing equivalent of the Essex-boy, weekend millionaires you'll see down in Soho on Saturday nights buying long-drinks for people earning x5 more than them and who then spend the rest of the week saying ''money dont interest me mate'' as they ruefully tuck into their economy pack lunch :laugh

    With this kind of revolutionary transfer policy, Wenger can probably get them to sell Reus for a half eaten packet of wine gums and 2nd hand copy of 4-4-2 magazine from January 2007, featuring interviews with Jimmy Bullard and Teddy Sheringham. :laugh:

    Have heard people praise BVB for letting Lewa go for **** all, and in the same moment mock Wenger for transfers like Adebayor for £25m.

    Someone like Schneiderlin would be great, but I can only question how it would affect the team. You can't take out Ramsey or Ozil, Sanchez/Ox/Walcott/Campbell are a must for most games, and Wilshere is starting to look like he is properly linking with Ramsey. I can see why a DM would replace Arteta and Flamini, but I still feel like Chambers is a better bet, with defensive and attacking capabilities, and he is certainly more mobile than most DMs. What Phil Jones problem? That he would have too many positions to find his best one?

    Dortmund are the Southampton or Arsenal of Germany. Everytime they bring through a world class player, they are forced to sell them for big money to a better team in that league (Munich). You can't blame them for wanting to hold on to the players, but you have to question their logic.

    Giroud/new ST
    Sanchez Ozil Walcott
    Schneiderlin Ramsey

    With Ox, Podolski and Campbell as impact subs. Wilshere with Ramsey would leave you too exposed, I imagine Wilshere will have to resign himself to not starting most of the time in the league unless there's injuries. And I can't see Campbell playing massive amounts.

    As in a highly rated young defender ends up playing in midfield all the time and doesn't develop as expected.

    I would actually play:
    Walcott
    Reus Ozil Sanchez
    Chambers Ramsey

    Walcott proved he can be a striker, and that line-up would win us the league (Chambers can be changed for Wilshere/Arteta/Diaby/New DM).

    Apparently Galatasaray are going to bid £28m for the Podolski + Campbell double. I want to see Campbell getting loads of games this year, he is easily good enough to at least come off the bench most games.

    Depends on you managing to get Reus. Real and Barca are covered, Bayern would have to pay loads. Wouldn't City/Chelsea/PSG be in for him?

    I'd take that tbh, Campbell's 22 he won't improve massively.

    I think Arsenal are the main club. Liverpool and you lot were in for him briefly, but denied rumours.

    I would sell Podolski, but Campbell is important coverage for us.

    Who knows, if it looked like happening I could see Chelsea trying to stop it. Their winger options aren't great after Hazard.

    Even if they do go for Reus I reckon he would prefer us. We have a larger contingency of Germans, and the fact we managed to bring in Ozil and Sanchez shows we must have something desirable to good players.

    Are you cereal? We're so stacked in midfield it's not even funny. I'd rather go out and buy a striker then get another Winger.
    Tbf though, most of our midfielders play through the middle (behind the front 3)

    last year, we used cazorla, podolski, rosicky, wilshere and gnabry for a few games out wide. To me, they are not the most speedy wingers ie like walcott and sanchez...hence why i say winger (Ok maybe i should've said a true winger with speed and accuracy).

    And yes, alternatively, we should go get a striker (but who can also play as a winger)

    But for now, we need DM and CB. Then maybe try and push for a striker (though really doubt wenger will)
    Or maybe he'll go get a loan player in jan like kallstrom but a striker.

    Pretty much the norm, things are always taken to extremes. I'd agree though he's gone full swing from being overrated to be underrated.
