    Is Vermaelen still on his way out? If he stays then I don't think there's any point spending money on a new CB. He put in a some decent perfromances during his appearances, I can't recall any errors that we've grown accustom to seeing from him.

    He said he'd decide after the World Cup. He's made quite a few errors tbh and you see a massive change in our defence when he was on in Koscielnies absence

    Thanks for linking it, most people cba.

    But a Telegraph report is hardly concrete
    It's a misunderstanding from what I can see. When he was signed, word (e.g. in Mundo Deportivo) was that AFC have first refusal which kicks in if FCB accept offers that are higher than the price Cesc was bought for, as well as a 50% profit clause (meaning Arsenal would get half of the profit sum FCB get from selling him). So there's no "buy back clause". The sum that is being talked about is the sum that FCB would have to offer Cesc to Arsenal for in case they accept other offers that are higher than the initial transfer fee.

    So it's entirely up to FCB and other clubs coming in for Cesc with an offer that's higher than €34m. Either way, at this point there's no point talking about it as no decision has been made on Cesc with Enrique being in office for like 2 days. I can see him leaving, but there's no way that would be determined already, especially because I doubt Cesc would want to leave unless he understands he won't be counted on any longer, which is yet to be seen.

    Yh I know but I mean in comparison to previous seasons, he's been ok for us recently so he'ss till a decen 3rd choice.

    On a completeyl random note though, have we ever had a more un-injury prone player as Giroud? The guy has played almost the whole season and hasn't broken a sweat. It would be interesting to see a compiled list of our clubs least injury prone players.

    He hasn't be injured however he looked fatigued and far from form for a good half of the season

    He's probably joking the Wigan team to partner Harry Poitier in defence.

    Yh you're right, to say he hasn't broken a sweat is a mad exaggeration. But still his injury record here has been impressive, you would imagine the fatigue would lead to a strain but nah

    According to BBC Sport, Chelsea have agreed to sell Luiz to PSG for £40m

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/27553042
    Do you know what that means?

    It means PSG HAVE to sell. They've already failed FFP..

    It means Wenger should pounce on someone. Anyone.

    Ibraaaaaaaa

    Matuidi < id have him any day

    Cavani

    Explains some of it, I guess. Pretty impressive of Arsenal to get that first refusal in, I didn't think they had it in em. Not bad at all.

    I can't see why he'd leave, not that I know anything about potential changes at Barca under Enrique.

    You really have no idea what you're talking about


    It would be typical wenger to deflect the blame on to other people for his own failings and lack of spending though. Probably more of the same this summer

    Enrique to me seems like he's going to do a full on revamp of the squad Guardiola style.

    It's obvious that he needs a new defence, he'll probably use Montoya as a starter, buy a CB or two, sell Mascherano if he gets 2 CBs in the summer and buy a central midfielder to replace Xavi or use Rafinha.

    He may sell a player or two. Did Xavi sign a new contract at Barca?

    nope, hes said himself that he particularly doesn't like being played as a DM and prefers to have a holding midfielder with him. This allows him to glide across the field and get by players with ease (we can dream), without having to commit time to defending as much.

    Diaby is very much a dribbler of the ball, just because of his build many assume that he should be some sort of destroyer at DM (people think this about players like Khedira too), this isn't the case really and while being compared to Vieira at times, he's more offensive than him with less of a physical impact on games. Arsene also says he shouldnt be played as a holding/defensive player, and even at Auxerre he was played as a Striker sometimes.
    Ah, thanks for the correction. If Diaby and Wenger don't see Diaby as DM then so be it. Either way, our team will be vulnerable if we don't sign a specialist DM. All the top teams have steal in this role except us. Someone similar to Matic at Chelsea would be ideal, I'm not obsessed about unearthing the next Vieira but surely AFC fans agree that we need a top class DM. Tbh I'd rather purchase Alex Song back from Barcelona rather than Cesc and both are available.

    I agree. We need a DM and a proper one. I really think Schnerdelin would be perfect. I wouldn't want Song back. Ever.

    Pretty sure Cavani will leave this summer. Has been reports of unhappiness through out the year and what with FFP they have no choice but to sell.

    I doubt we'd get him first however
