    He gets inside knowledge.

    It was a deal to shut him up.

    Knew this window was going the flop massively. The evidence was there with letting Sagna go and then going to replace him Debuchy (doesn't make any footballing and financial sense whatsoever), what a massive downgrade but the fan base have fooled themselves that it was a good deal because Debuchy is excellent (more like okay) attacking. Only been here 5 games and has already cost us a few goals and many more chances that really should have been converted into goals and he tried his best to relegate us to the Europa league (I actually won't mind EL- would like a few unsolicited trips to the eastern blocs). Rest assured, many more to come. Oh Bacary we miss and need you.

    Plus, letting Cesc and Mandz go elsewhere.

    These three are unforgivable.

    The rest are understandable. Cavani was never going to materialise and didn't make sense when you consider his wages roughly 180k post tax, a year into a 5 year contract after been signed for £57m just last year and Zlatan announcing his retirements plan; PSG were never selling him. Falcao just wasn't going to happen because Mendes (I speculate same thing stymied Carvalho's deal from materialising).

    But the good thing is that hopefully our gullible fanbase on twitter stop listening to this so called ITKs. They know nothing and are only using their guesses to further themselves e.g. Jamie Sanderson of metro.

    You guys should really sell us Blackett. Pretty sure Arsene is taking advise from N****aeme atm.

    Can't believe Welbeck is actually going to be playing in an Arsenal shirt. FFS. Still, beggars can't be choosers and all. This teaches us not to slate other players from now on...

    Cleverely isn't actually so **** you know.

    He used to be an editorial director so I am sure he knows a person or two. Whether we are interested in another player is obvious, its just whether we can get it done by 11.

    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.
    more then bare.. its dangerous

    A couple of injuries and the season is in dire circumstances..

    This was wengers priority a few weeks back, it was the one signign he confirmed he was in for, and said publicaly he would try and get...

    Whats happened??

    Even though 16 million is too much for Welbeck - is better than Sanogo right?

    Yeah arsene goes on and on about us not being in for a striker, and we get a striker. Yet he's been saying for weeks that he knows we need defensive cover, and we've got nobody.

    nah no-one else is coming, naive and ignorant from Arsene to trust our defence to hold out for a whole season with the players we have. Also disappointed with no midfield signing, would swap Welbeck for one right now.

    The incompetence comes from not signing who we need, not what he's said. We've all known Arsene chats breeze and can't be taken at his word. Still, if we manage to nab Nastasic at the eleventh hour this window won't have been so bad.

    Guys, get behind Welbeck. He wasn't our first choice but at 24, he really does have the potential to be a great forward if given the chance. He's better than Giroud and I'd rather have him than pay an outrageous fee for Falcao.
