    I'm kind of dreaming here, but Yaya Toure would be the best signing bar non for us. Cheeky 40m & 1 pound bid should do the trick.

    Haha but I don't get why AFC peeps would want Remy, I've yet to encounter a serious Gooner who wants him. He's not capable of Henry type things... he's in his prime and still fails to impress me.

    I had a feeling you wanted to resign Kolo Toure.

    Personally I think you have a point. Remy can play on the wing as well like Henry and he's getting a mad goal return for a guy who plays at Newcastle.

    Vela is clearly a better player than Pirez if I'm being honest.

    Toure is better than Viera too. It's just imagination and people living in the past for people to think otherwise, Did Viera get those same goal returns and they both play in a 4-4-2.

    How old are you? Cant imagine anyone who saw Pires play would say that.

    Toure and Vieira close to call, but Vieira offered more all round that Toure does. Was much more defensively involved so its not as simple as to talk about goal returns.

    I think Aurier is as good as signed tbh
    I hope so. I have a feeling Wenger will delay until after the WC by which time he's price will be 12m and Wenger will refuse to pay. Snap him up!

    I'm 20.

    Those goalscoring returns from Vela, a 20 goal a season winger who offers flair and dribbling ability to boot. Pires to me just seemed like one of those highlight reel players if I'm being honest, good player though but I always preferred Llungberg. It can be argued that Robben was probably better at Chelsea when fit and Giggs obviously blows Pires out the water.

    The ways of Pires are outdated nowadays as well. He'd work well for Manchester United though, could probably start for them now even though he's 40.

    So Pires didnt offer flair and dribbling ability? He was one of the most intelligent players Ive ever seen at AFC, wasnt the fastest but his awareness of space and technique to manipulate it made him world class. Could play him as a CAM easily. He was certainly a goal threat as well, was banging in 15+ a season.

    If you're going to compare Pires to modern day wide men, then it's names like Silva you should be bringing up not Vela. Pires is the same age as Giggs, and 2000-2006 Pires was the far far superior player. As was Overmars 1997-2000 for that matter.

    Ljungberg wasn't the most gifted player overall, but he had brilliant timing and scored the same type of goal over and over again. Hang on the RW jogging on the spot, see Henry peeling away, space opens in the middle, Bergkamp plays it into the space, goal. 2002 he was absolutely terrifying, never the same after his injury tho , lost alot of his pace, even if he hit some of the heights in 2004 too. By 2006 he was finished though, dont know why Pires came off over him in the CL final really.

    Interesting to listen to Lehmann the other day on Ljungberg. Said that after 2005 when the team was built around Cesc and possession more, that Ljungerg couldnt hack it because his instinct was entirely based on one touch football and releasing him early.

    It was subtle bait, jam style, I think

    No, but why would he leave his home town club when he's already had the chance to prove himself there?

    (If you're so sure he would leave, provide a source please.)
