    Speaking of GKs, we've been linked with Marshall from Cardiff. Personally I'd take him in a heartbeat, but not for the £15m Cardiff are believed to want, **** that!

    Exactly.

    If you look at Chelsea, United, City & Liverpool, they didn't spend crazy money for their 2nd choice keepers. I won't be surprised if Martinez will we 2nd choice next season.

    Breaking News on SSN:

    "Swansea City sign Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski on a four year deal"

    I'd rather he'd gone abroad but it's alright, I'll miss him. He was a very decent backup. obviously wish him all the best at Swansea
    I can only assume he's going there to be number one, I doubt he's going from one bench to the other. So what does that mean for Vorm? He did have quite a few injury issues this season.

    You're up early

    Well yeah obviously, I doubt he'd go from one bench to another especially as we would have probably be paying him more? I'm quite surprised he's gone to Swansea actually, I though Michel Vorm was a solid goalkeeper for them. Only other reason I can imagine is that the Vorm going to Liverpool rumours are looking more likely? Which again leaves me with confusion because they just signed Mignolet who is also quite good.

    Don't forget about the already forgotten Emiliano Viviano!... But he's on loan isn't he? So he will be going back I guess.

    I'm not sure if there actually are that many gay footballers tbh, and I have always found the assumptions that there are dozens in the PL to be quite strange. Certainly the gay people I went to school were disproportionately uninterested in playing sports that's for sure. Probably 1/2 gay men are 'camp' and so is it odd that few become professional sportsmen?

    And as far as I can see, gay footballers receive nothing but mass support from fans, journalists and team-mates so I'm not sure what more can be done really.
    Know it was a long time ago but the last time a high profile one came out, he killed himself, about 20 years ago.

    I don't see a rational reason why there wouldn't be a fair few tbh. Being gay is not particularly common % wise, but you would expect to be a fair few at least as there are hundreds of PL footballers. I get what you mean, that it's the same in my old school, everyone who was gay wasn't interested in team sports really. But that doesn't mean people have to be camp or obvious to be gay. Those people have more reason to hide it to show their "machoness". But it shouldn't be an issue anyway, so it's a shame that it is one. Wenger is a good guy though, have a lot of respect for him, not the bad guy some people oddly make him out to be.

    In other news i see people have said it, but Fabianski to Swansea :yep: Happy with that. Good keeper. Means Vorm must be out the door though, not that i mind much tbh.

    "Arsene Wenger refused to rush Jack Wilshere back from injury because he wanted to ensure the midfielder was fit for England's World Cup campaign.

    Wilshere says Wenger, who has been critical of aspects of international football in the past, was prepared to sacrifice short term impact at Arsenal to boost the national team."

    For the all the hate Wenger gets about his position on international vs club football, he has done well with this one. Just need Wilshere to pay him back, have a good world cup and be a key player for England.

    honestly think jenko can do a job and wouldn't be the worst thing if we got someone like Chambers in to act as some competition/backup. Obvs if we can get Aurier on the dirt cheap it can only be good but I agree with him in that if he gets game time he can fill Sagnas boots.

    I would not be happy, I'll be quite pissed off tbh. I thought we were going to use this FA Cup as a push and go on from there. I'd hate if we revert to these old ways.

    No excuse for signing Eto'o at all, we're trying to push on for the title here, not picking up cast offs from title rivals.

    There is a shortage of strikers around, but we can a lot better than this.

    I see Robin has got another one of his Dutch journalist friends to write a glowing article on him...smh

    At least he's honest enough to admit that his career was saved by Wenger...
