    Tbh since Zola, can't really think of a top striker who's done really well in the prem from an italian club?

    Interesting that he refused to comment on Sterling, seems like we may be in for him after all
    I'd be very surprised if Wenger doesn't attempt to tempt sterling like he did with Suarez.
    But getting him would mean saying goodbye to Walcott, Campbell, Gnabry, or even Cazorla.
    Most likely Walcott will step up now that he is at risk of loosing his place forever in England and Arsenal. Than us signing Sterling.

    I don't really think anyone who isn't already going would need to be sold tbh.

    Campbell, Sanogo and Poldi can both go and I think VERY few Arsenal fans would care, they're the new Chamakh and Bendther as far as I'm concerned. Gnabry is only 19 so could easily be loaned out, and I don't think we'd need to get rid of Cazorla considering Sterling doesn't really have the stamina to play for extended periods of time.

    As I've said on here before, to be title contenders you either need an incredible fitness team that stops your players from getting lengthy injuries (i.e. Chelsea) or 2 top players in each position (i.e. City).

    So ideally we would want 8 very good players fighting for the front 4 positions in a 4-2-3-1/ 4-1-4-1. We'd have Sanchez, Ozil, Santi, Welbeck, Walcott, Giroud, Sterling (plus maybe Rosicky) which would be 7 (8 inc. Rosicky), so we'd also be able to add another top striker (imo Lacazette) or a winger (e.g. Pedro) and shift Walcott or Welbeck to second choice striker role. Only thing stopping it is money and the fact we have other positions in MUCH more need of back up at CB, CDM and GK

    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.
    He's gone. absolute passenger!

    That 7-5 game was the most bipolar I have felt in any game, ever. Suicidal at 4-0, euphoric at 5-4, pissed at 5-5, screaming at 7-5.

    Yeah true, and was also weird seeing Giroud in that match actually. How he's developed.

    His heading was still on point back then. From what I remember, Coquelin was actually the only player in the first half who played well. Emi Martinez has developed the most.

    Looking back, that weekend was amazing for the casual viewer. Arsenal 7-5 Reading, Chelsea 5-4 United.

    You could say that for so many Arsenal youth products :lol:

    There are so many players that you just think ''what happened to them?'', it would make a brilliant thread to be fair.

    Tbh the new England team you can see actually being a main part of the squad in the future as they've been integrated in the first teams.

    Richards is an unfortunate casualty personally but he always had the talent to make it. The rest just aint good enough.
