    So you'd pick??

    Problem is we've got too many good players in all positions but no outstanding players in any other than maybe Ramsey.

    Why are we talking about Falcao on loan for £20mil? Surely thats not aiming high enough being mugged out of £20mil for a player for one season...

    its Euros and we will probably make that much by just being in the CL. Not gonna happen though. Sokratis wont be coming either tbh.

    Rabiot is a very good prospect as far as I've heard. But it just seems like he's another B2B midfielder, so what's the point when we have Jack and Ramsey who are both very young?
    I remember Ornstein saying that the CM we sign won't be a major name, but a squad player (Rabiot at 19 not exactly going to demand 1st team football/starting). I'm hearing his mum(agent) is unhappy with him staying at PSG anyway. Rabiot not a bad signing but do we really need him? I wouldn't say so.
    I've seen him play in both holding and B2B roles, but he wouldn't be a pure DM at all, he's like Khedira in the sense that even though he's pretty big he just doesn't use his physical presence to push other players off the ball. He does have some mouth watering passes in him though from what i've seen on youtube (I know). Would be a big risk but would probably fill Artetas boots rather than a DM like big willy.

    Cerci has asked to leave the club though, Torino board report

    falcao for 20 million puts me in 2 minds..

    I mean, he is good, and we need a striker..

    But 20 million, jeeze..

    Thats a lot just for a loan..

    If it wins us the title, and then we buy reus linned up by march next year, it looks genius..

    If we come 4th, and have no clear striker targets, it looks like wasted money..

    Hmm

    (No chance wenger will take it though, considering how tight he can be with funds)

    how can people not want Falcao??

    we have no recognised striker atm and people are turning down one of the best in the business. Also the 20mil includes his wages and you have to pay top dollar to get the best players in the current market.

    If we get Falcao and possibly a quality holding mid, we are PL and CL contenders. However, with the current squad we'll end up finishing 4th and getting knocked out of the round of 16 in the CL again!

    Falcao for £20m including wages is a steal considering he'll pay for himself in our CL run. Alexis has already been paid for - thank you, Besiktas.

    What happened to our huge cash reserves? £12m for Debuchy, £3m for Ospina, and £16m for Chambers = £31m. We have something like £150m+ sitting in a vault.

    Splash the cash or it's Sanogo up front when Alexis gets injured; and buy a ****ing DM.

    Bayern signed Benatia so Javi Martinez could be available he can play at CDM/CB I feel loaning Falcao would be a statement however he not for us we need a player that can hold up the ball unfortunately sanogo injury prove so I reckon loaning LLorente or Mario Gomez could be decent. Don't forget we still have Walcott, Campbell, Alexis and Sanogo who can lead the line!

    The draw doesn't surprise me. Three German clubs getting the same English opposition as last season's group stage (Leverkusen could not get Liverpool but it doesn't matter)

    Don't forget Vermaelen was sold for £10 million and we got around £5 million for Fabregas and £8m for Vela

    being brought by madrid or loaned..

    If brought, then we should be all over benzema...

    Would be the biggest stroke of luck in the window, and no other big team seems to need a striker now liverpool have balo, (well chelsea kind of do, but I cant see them breaking the bank for one..) so we would seem to not have much competition

    Falcao's injury problems are an issue.
