    Thats what our fans said for the past 6 years. I wouldn't hold your breath.



    Posted from TSR Mobile
    The same fans that wanted Ferguson out before he won Manchester Utd their last league title no doubt.

    Forgive me for not completely trusting some football fans opinion on the potential of a player over two managers that have over 50 years of managerial experience.

    Yeah Sterling is class. lol. Look, Walcott isnt bad... but he is not a world beater. Sterling would fit into Arsenal's style so perfectly!

    Sterling is much more effective with the ball where as Theo is better at getting into positons and finishing.

    Also yeah I'm not exactly fussed over Campbell, would rather we sold him for 16m and free up wages or etc. Gnabry needs a loan too but I can see Ox coming big next season and even if he doesn't overtake Sterling it wouldn't matter. Perhaps if Sterling's best position IS '10, he isn't going to play it at Arsenal considering Cazorla and Ozil don't either. (Cazorla playing CM and Ozil LW)

    lolworthy that people still dont rate walcott, if he comes back from injury successfully and back to his peak (see 12/13 season, guy had 14 goals and 12 assists in about 30 odd games from the RW ffs) he will displace the likes of Welbeck in our starting lineups easily. Granted his form hasn't been great but he's just come back from a year long break with little to no game time.

    People were calling to sell on Walcott before his best season too, and even worse this time that people are considering handing him to Chelsea or City... Obviously he's got negatives to his play i.e defensive duties forgotten or not so technical and I doubt the latter will change but the guy racks up the numbers like no one else while on form plus he's coming into his prime and we should deffo look to keep him on.

    Tbh Walcott's stats make him look better than he is

    Only time he was genuinely very effective and consistent was 2012/13.

    Are we going to go Sanchez and Walcott on the wings really? Seems like too much running and not enough tekkers. End of the day £30m offer from City would be bitten off...

    the only player I want from spurs is Lloris..

    Rumours building up that he wants out, when spurs dont make CL again..

    Dont think we have any chance at him - but he is the sort of keeper we need
    Read he may have a release clause this summer when Spurs dont qualify for the CL...in which case we could have him. 20m euros

    Dont think Lloris has any real connection to Spurs and he's best mates with half our squad so we'd be silly not to get him given the chance. Definitely title challenging quality.

    I've been thinking this for the past 2 seasons, but it just never happens.

    he had a good away game vs bayern with only cameo instances of showing ability since.

    also has a very frustrating lack of end product.

    This is true for almost literally every young player tbh.

    And imo AOC has had a terrific season this time around.

    It's not his end product that worries me, it's more so his link up with other players and decision making. Both can be easily improved with more experience/right conditioning as opposed to simply not being good enough on the ball, or not having enough pace etc.

    He's been hit and miss this season. Shown great signs of improvement but then flops the next match anyway. UTD game though??

    £16mil you taking the piss? What team in their right mind would pay over £10mil for him

    If a team offered £16mil now I'd shake their arm off

    Current transfer market is inflated to the bone? Welbeck and Ballotelli went for 16m I'm sure Campbell can go for around that price especially considering he's only 22!

    Campbell is basically at where Origi was at(v.good WC, done fairly well for clubs) and he went for £10m. Always the chance someone will pay £12m for him but would have to be a PL side for that

    Personally think he's quite average and hope we sell

    Balotelli had a proven track record in the pl whilst Welbeck was English and from a rival. Campbell is an unproven player with one decent season and a good WC. There's no realistic comparison

    Theo's an extremely efficent player. The same way Podolski is/was. High stats, but doesn't contribute defensively at all, and is quite poor technically, but has good movement (in Theo's case) and is quick (previously Podolski was), and is a good finisher.

    Sterling's the far, far, far better footballer, quick, technically gifted, good finisher and good defensively.

    £20m + Theo for Sterling.

    real question is what will be done with podolski.

    doubt inter would sign him after his abysmal form, and its going to be hard to move him on with his wages so high.

    Koln will resign him I think. £3m fee to make up the wage differential.

    He's an absolute god there anyway so they'll be all over it.

    This. He's been been used everywhere this season, which hasn't helped him, but he is so gifted in that final third when on-form and partnered with world-class talent.

    Sanchez could be the perfect foil for him. I hope to god he doesn't leave us, but Arsenal would be fools to let the opportunity pass them by. He'd be infinitely better at the Emirates than the Etihad (he's a London boy, too) and with Sanchez up top, Sterling could find the form he showed in the latter part of the 13/14 season.

    Campbell should have gone to palace on loan if we wanted to give him another chance. Almost guaranteed first team football and it's in the PL. There was actually no point in signing him, it was more of a business investment than anything else.
