    Wouldn't worry about it, it won't affect your rep. Just some troll.

    Yes, I think it could be a ploy. I think it's Arsenal saying "we don't have to go for your guy so stop setting abnormal price points or we'll buy someone else" to a number of clubs. The prices which have been asked have kind of surprised me and I'm glad we've not paid them. £10m for Williams? No thanks. Jovetic going for £27m. Real seem to be putting on an extra 1-2m every time we talk about Higuain. The guys at Arsenal are some of the top businessmen in the country, and so yeah I think there's a lot of power-politics going on..
    i see it as arsenal trying to show the fans that we're going for top players (but getting suarez is 95% not happening) so when we end up with mediocre signings the board/wenger will say look we went for top players but couldn't get them pointing at suarez for example despite us never really having a chance to get him

    if we're got £30 mill to spend on suarez maybe we can get ibrhaimovic? i know he's 30 or so but he's world class still has a few years left, proven winner in many leagues and it looks as if psg are in for cavani. Only problem will be his wage demands

    I don't really think the suarez bid is a "ploy" considering we were about to spend £20m+ on Higuain. Maybe you haven't got it through your head that Arsenal are ready to spend big money on top players. Its a pretty stupid theory to think a formal bid is just PR to deceive arsenal fans considering our financial situation has changed. The chances of Suarez to arsenal is way more than 5%. A deal can happen.

    Ibrahimovic? There's a reason why Wenger didn't sign him when he was 16, he hasn't changed one bit in fact his ego has got even worse.

    I'll get negged for this. I really dont care. Suarez is a terrible human being, I think all of us can agree on that. I don't care though, let him bite all the people in the world, if he's going to get us trophies i dont care. He doesn't give a damn. I don't know why but i love the guy. Maybe its the shamelessness mixed with the fact that he's so good all his extra baggage seems worth it. He would slot into our team perfectly tbh

    My take on the Suarez story is this: I would 100% take him, though I don't think we'll get him. As long as he can keep himself out of trouble, I will take him. We are crying out for a world-class striker right now. I don't think he's as bad as he's being portrayed in the media. In my opinion he isn't even racist tbh. As a Ghanaian I should be hating him for his handball, but it's not that deep.

    There have been rumours going round that now that Cavani has moved to PSG Ibrahimovic is going to Real. Not sure how reliable these stories are though.

    Surely we have to make a move for Fabregas? Man UTD are bidding £35m so if it's true we get first crack at £25m, what are we waiting for?

    Wenger wanted him to come for a preliminary trial but Ibra told him he didnt do trials. Very likely he'd have taken a contract considering his best offer was Ajax...

    If Man Utd get Fabregas i will lose all faith in arsenal tbh. I will also hate Fabregas, even after what he did to us i still love the guy, but going to Man Utd will be unforgivable. Waiting for RVP to come and say he has the DNA of a winner

    We need to bring Cesc back to the Emirates.

    It's all good accepting the money for him, saying he wanted to leave and we had no choice. But surely if he becomes available we should be making an offer to bring him back. He's at least as good as he was when he left.

    Anyway don't we have first refusal?

    Allegedly, yeah. Not sure how anyone knows the details of his contract though.

    A formal bid by United changes the situation significantly. If Barca are willing to sell, we have to stop them getting him.

    how is ibra any worse than suarez in terms of ego/attitude, at least ibra doesnt bite people

    and what about us signing park? what was the point of that? to make money, what club actually buys a player just to make money and not used to improve the squad. if arsenal can do that i wouldn't not believe it's a ploy

    You need a striker though more. I'm doubting you are going to dish out £30mil each on 2 players.

    Really? Read that sentence back to yourself.. Your telling me that arsenal would sign a player that they don't NEED just to snub another team? Be sensible
