    Okay here's one. Does anyone think Welbeck has the POTENTIAL to be a class forward??

    If you pay anywhere near £16m for Welbz, then it really does beg the question; why did you not go for Balotelli?

    Balotelli: 14 in 30, including penalties, from upfront, in a weaker league
    Welbeck: 9 in 25, no pens, mostly played on the wing
    Balotelli is a "bargain"
    Welbeck is "overpriced"

    lol wot?

    'deal agreed in principle for welbeck'

    Great.. realy glad about that actually - I like welbeck, and have confidence he will be good for us.

    He is good defensivly, can put in a good shift, not bad at holding the ball up.. and although I would say (for a striker) his weakest area is scoring.. he is still a league better then sanogo..

    He has pace, which will be very different from giroud, and when I have seen him play upfront for united, and not be shafted to the wing, I remember him getting a run of games last season, and actually scoring quite well.

    - Happy with that.

    But still utterly dissapointed in the lack of CB and more importantly DM/CDM

    Welbeck should be good for you.

    Wenger will get stick for it though. It has 'Panic Buy' written all over it.

    I agree, I think he is a limited player, he will hold up the ball and use his pace and work hard for the team. Daniel Nii Tackie Mensah Welbeck is approaching 24 will improve somewhat but I think he will do well when you counter attack but could struggled against a packed defence as he seems to thrive more when there is space and he can use his pace to exploit the defence.
    If you had bought him earlier in the window, I think 10-12 m would be fair but I think due to keeping it last minute I think 13-15 m is a fair price so you have slightly overpaid imo.

    why all you man suddenly started hating on Vengah?

    took a 6-0 defeat for you all to realise that he's a senile buffoon

    Also btw Lpool paid £16m for Balo and £12m for Sturridge, and Bony was available for £20m, definitely better value out there than Welbz but it's a standard price for a decent player I guess.

    Koscienly, Debuchy, Chambers, Mertesaker, Gibbs, Monreal. Then a couple of reserves in Bellerin and Hayden. Looks a little bare tbh, only really 3 center backs and 3 full backs with a few reserves and chambers being able to play as a fullback/center back/cdm.

    United sign Falcao (albeit on loan) and we sign Welbeck. I've had it, I throw in the towel. Wenger must go, he's lost it.
