    But he will also have come from a tiring WC in South America and it could take a lot out of him before the new season starts.
    Even if they get to the final, he'll have a month before the season starts... if he can't recover in that time then he shouldn't be a professional footballer

    Just bid 35 mil for Lukaku tbh.

    Mourinho's stupid enough to sell a 21 year old striker with 65 league goals to his name.

    About Griezmann, Wenger said his goal was Pirès-like (not he as a player). Just sounded like standard commentary though, what he said on Telefoot a while back about following him for a long time sounded much juicier.

    He's unlikely to play in all WC matches if he doesn't turn it up though. Germany have too many good options for that position, and e.g. Reus is in much better form than him.

    That's actually funny that Lukaku could probably break the record for most league goals scored if he stayed at the prem until the end of his career.

    He isn't. Cabaye is more defensively sound than him. Remember that Cabaye is known for his nastiness and has made his money playing one of the pivot. He's never looked like a B2B player to me (doesn't look to have the energy) and best playing the DLP role in the middle 3rd. Matuidi struggled earlier in the season in the pivot and only started shinning when PSG switched to 433 and he was freed up a bit more.
    Yeah I agree that Cabaye plays best as a creative DLP no.6/8 like he was playing at newcastle. He did well as an AM but his play still felt a bit like a DLP though.

    Tbf 4-3-3 helps the BBMs, majority of the attacking BBMs will like having extra protection behind them. Toure would probably have had a field day playing in the role Iniesta had as the most high up of the trio.

    Yeah I guess. Maybe moving to the Prem during a world cup year was a mistake. We don't know how he's handling the fatigue

    For PSG yeah I agree. I remember he had a great game in the CL against Chelsea at home. Surely for the French NT he's the most defensively sound midfielder out of that trio? I personally think Cabaye is frustrated playing deeper afterall it was his form in the final thrid of the pitch which got a move to PSG
    Ozil well tbh he was forced out of Madrid, they finance their deals for galacticos players by selling the less famed players, Higuain and Ozil pretty much financed Bale essentially. Real knew what they were doing.

    Na, Cabaye. Matuidi looks like he'll run his socks off so people think he's the most defensively sound but 419 would probably agree with me that his bursts of speed and energy are what make him so good, not his positioning sense and tackling ability. Same thing goes for Pogba, although he's a good passer and dribbler.

    Arsenal don't need him tbh and you don't know if he'd work as well the second time as the first. I'd understand if maybe he'd want to experience another club as well. (Personally I don't like going back to places, I prefer going somewhere new and learning something different and not spoil the experience of the past.)

    Disclaimer: only started watching the PL after Fabregas left so perhaps I just don't get this Arsenal nostalgia.

    Gotta be a weird situation in the PL wrt AMs when Fabregas is rejected.

    I find it weird though since he can play deeper or up front.

    Personally if I was you guys I'd buy him and play him up front. I feel that Wenger is still thinking about developing players and that young team. I think Wilshere is partly the problem if Fabregas doesn't go to Arsenal. I said anyway Fabregas is staying at Barca next season, if not he's going to one of Arsenal, City or Monaco.

    wenger won't allow him to strengthen our rivals. I think he is just waiting for an english club to bid for him. Another rumour bieng circulated is that wenger has met with David Dein's son to sort out the fabregas transfer.

    Anyone who thinks we don't need Cesc is a ****ing idiot. What happened when Ramsey, Ozil & Wilshere got injured? We were stuck with playing Arteta and Flamini together ffs. I don't ever want that rubbish to happen again. Never count on Diaby, because well, it's Diaby, Santi can blow very hot and cold and Tommy is a bit part player. We need Cesc, someone of his calibre wouldn't go amiss and if we could get him back there should be no debate.

    If other players are unhappy about having more competition, tough ****, maybe they should try harder at displacing the player rather than having a moan.

    I read that it's Ozil's presence in the team that is stopping Wenger from using his first refusal to sign Cesc and not Wilshere's. The reason being that Mesut and Cesc are of similar stature, price & role in midfield, and Wenger wants Ozil to have a stellar second season playing as many games as possible without Cesc stunting his progress. Seems reasonable logic to me.

    Aurier tells gooner that he's coming to Arsenal...
    Looks promising! I expect that deal to be done; it's what Aurier has publicly expressed he's more that open to and what we need at right back is two young players in him and Jenkinson competing week-in week-out for first team football.

    This is just press coming to their own conclusion- far fetch as always. Wenger knew last summer when we signed Ozil that Cesc was possibly going to be available this summer (words that came out of his mouth). He was interested then, pretty sure that he's still interested now IF Cesc is available.

    Yeah added on to being PL proven, and counting towards home grown. LVG and Pellers (assuming yaya goes) should be on their knees for his signature.

    Would chew my arm off for him back at Arsenal tbf but not sure where he would play, for a false 9 to work we need our wings to be on form, which means podolski needs to be replaced. I was wondering how he would fair in the role Arteta plays atm, he can keep the ball better than him and can push forward but with no real steel in the midfield we will probs get punished when he gets dispossessed higher up the pitch. Could go with the old Flamini-Fab but thats pretty unfair on Ramsey. Playing him as an AM would displace Ozil or push him onto the wing. So it just kinda seems he would be there when someone gets injured and tbh he's too good for that.

    Fabregas up front in the Prem would be suicide. I'd love him back to rotate in CM or CAM positions and to make us better able to cope with our inevitable injury crisis. Having said that there are other areas that need strengthening first.

    I disagree, if you got a very good DM who could dictate play and will stay back you wouldn't have a problem with using fabregas up top, I'd assume that you'd have good wingers who will make runs into the channel. You play a slow style of football anyway, with Walcott and Chamberlain you have two players with the pace capable of making runs inbetween the fullback and centre back after initially stretching them.
