    But he's quite a reliable source. Up to you what you take from it.

    just a possibility if noone else is available and it means we don't have to sell him. he might lack a bit of positioning and concentration sometimes but i think wenger could teach him how to play there, just like he did arteta

    He's been poor defensively this season (when he's been on) so putting him in CDM is even worse

    We'll make him Captain so he gets to lift it first...

    Anyway Chelsea aren't going to win the league next season. Maybe FA cup. Top 2 isn't guaranteed either.

    He'll also struggle in the CL. Ain't getting past the Semi final either unless Costa does a Drogba.

    Hoping they have some team implosion with Mourinho.

    Could happen

    Terry will do his girlfriend before he lets Cesc have the armband.

    Arsenal fans don't do relaxing.

    Also, the only thing that will (somewhat) dampen the blow of Cesc going to Chelsea is us spending big on a DM like Martinez.

    We should build my Fifa team (but without Suarez, obviously)

    Suarez alt.
    Reus Ozil Walcott
    Martinez Ramsey

    If Fabregas goes to Chelsea, Wenger and the board have put an immense amount of pressure on themselves. Now they have to make sure they sign top quality players, and by that I mean players like Benzema, Cavani, Di Maria, Martinez, etc... which isn't going to happen.

    The transfer market is full of scraps at the moment. Not many world class players on the market that would come in and make a significant difference. That's why we should have snapped up Cesc when we got the opportunity.

    I'm guessing we will end up with a second-tier striker, decent RB, adequate cup GK, Vela/Griezmann and an austerity defensive midfielder.

    That's the great thing about cup year though. There will be loads of break out stars who will turn world class.

    In the PL we'd only have to compete with UTD since Chelsea would already have Cesc and Costa
    City's team is almost perfect but they'd need a CB or so
    Liverpool are already making their signings but we're still probably the bigger attraction then they are

    Madrid want Suarez otherwise also have a near perfect team but they'd need an Alonso replacement for the future, which happens to e the same position we are in for


    A second tier striker wouldn't be so bad, as long as they are more clinical than giroud. We have enough creativity to score left right and centre tbh and with the addition of Griezeman that reduces even more responsibility from the striker.

    I thought I read something about him stating he was happy to stay at Bayern. Not too sure it was a while back

    He's definitely leaving. Valued at about €30M from what I read but they're willing to listen to offers at around €20-25m. Haven't heard anything concrete about where he's going but Chelsea are favorites to sign him.

    Too many contingencies here. Our opportunity to get a world class striker/holding midfielder depends on a lot of other unlikely events. We will get replacements, but none at the level we need. Of course I could be wrong and Wenger & co. could pull an absolute rabbit out of the hat, but I'll reserve my optimism for now.
