    30 to 40mil on a quality CB and GK wouldve made a massive difference to your season, probably wouldve made up that money in the difference between prize money for winning 2 to 4 competitions and winning nothing like it looks the way things are going.
    You don't need to spend that much on a new CB. Smalling for United was £10m. It took a while for him to get established but Vidic was only £7.5m. I'm pretty sure Wenger could find someone with his scouting network.

    I don't think Arsenal needed to buy in summer, that was the time to buy. A keeper maybe, but I don't think they need to this summer. Fabianski is a good back up keeper, and Szczesny is looking pretty good considering he is a young keeper. Both those are injured long term, unusual for keepers. Vermalen, Djourou, Kos are pretty decent CB's, Sqaillaci is just dire though, should never have bought him. If most team had two 1st team CB's out long term they would be in trouble.

      i would prefer jens over almunia, right now. At least with jens the defence can have some confidence that our keeper will deal with awkward balls like west broms second goal (saying that tho, it wasnt even an awkward ball, just a punt up field).

      I hope Djourou makes a shock return, just like RvP did against Barcelona!

      Djourou himself has come out and said he'll be out for the rest of the season too

      Who played instead of song? Goalie I forgot. I think clichy is **** and gibbs was good.
      I didn't actually know the team you put out when I was there and post match the talk was of a weak united team beating a full strength arse.

      Well it wasn't exactly a 'weak' United team - fair enough you had players out of position but the defence was (aside from Ferdy) your first choice.

      Also Gibbs had one of his worst ever performances in that game, basically let Fabio have a free header early on that went narrowly wide/over.

      Diaby and Denilson played instead of Cesc and Song for that game - says it all really.

      Oh yeah now I remember. Denilson went off and nobody around me even knew he was playing

      Think he is the only player in the prem with more goals per game than Hernandez. Epic tbh

      I agree Almunia has to go, but so does half of our squad!

      Almunia, Squillaci, Denilson, Diaby, Rosicky, Bendtner all need to go. They are just absolutely useless!

      Almunia - enough said
      Squillaci - is ****
      Denilson - slows the game too much and gives away too many balls
      Diaby - "§$="ÄÖ'$="?%
      Rosicky - no longer as good as what he was
      Bendtner - He can become the top striker in the Qatari third division

      We all said before this season that we need a top quality keeper and two centre backs, look what has happened!
