    We had already released Squillaci so he wasn't our player for Bastia to take him from. He was a free agent.

    Oh fair enough, I wasn't aware of that! Either way its good to see that we are freeing up our wage budget even if we have to release them for nothing. I'm sure Squillaci will be happy as well to move on somewhere where he can get actual game time.

    Yeah he'll be better than he was last season but I really do hope Wenger does still buy a world class forward. You always think Wenger reads too much into pre-season friendlies.

    Yeah that's my worry as well that he'll see giroud and the likes score lots of goals against opposition of not too high standards and then think that the squad is good enough.

    I guess you never know that like some people thought that the season were we sold fabregas, nasri and clichy it was the 8-2 drubbing by Manchester united that convinced wenger to buy while others think that he was prepared to buy beforehand though I guess we don't really know his motives behind purchases I guess

    Several breaking News Outlets in Spain have claimed Cazorla has agreed personal terms with Athletico Madrid.

    The fact that some are quite respected such as Marca, raises eyebrows. Personally, I think £22m would be a good deal and I think we could find someone to replace him. Whilst he was great against the smaller clubs, I never saw him do anything special against the big teams and at 28, he won't be getting much better.

    This is all of course dependent on Wenger signing a replacement of similar calibre.

    It's quite sickening every year we sell our best players. Yes there are plenty of players out there we can buy, some even better than Cazorla, but it's like starting all over again. In his second year in England he could be quite the player but it looks like he may be out.

    I really wanna see us move for Mata now.

    Money does crazy things and clearly there are people in the Arsenal hierarchy who are obsessed with it. If this Cazorla story is true, it really is a shame.

    £22 million? Where did you get that from? And how would it be great we sell him? We've had no success selling our best players every summer and it's time we act firm and keep them all. Just look at how stubborn Liverpool are with Suarez, Barca with Fabregas and UTD with Rooney.

    We need to stop selling, no matter what price is on offer. Gazidis, and his love for money, has ruined Arsenal.

    You won't sell Cazorla. It's just silly season. And there's absolutely no chance of you getting Mata either.

    Doesnt really make any sense for either Arsenal or Cazorla. I dont think Cazorla is worth much more than 22m, but to replace him we'd spend at least as much. Sounds like BS anyway.

    Honestly, what else is Gazidis really going to say, all he's statements have probably been revised and approved by the board.

    No Surprise there are no important quotes from Wenger about our situation, all Ashton has done is cherry pick the information that suits he's anti Arsenal agenda

    There's no way this will happen. Santi is settled and happy, particularly since his ol' chum Monreal appeared. We have him on a long term deal.

    Other news has Lyon trying to have a player-swap plus cash deal for Gervinho with Grenier going the other way. We've already had a bid for him knocked back, and as unlikely as this story is to be correct, it'd be godly if it were true.
    Grenier signed a new contract at Lyon recently, highly unlikely deal
