    Require an extension when you have 2 months to get the deals done, Embarrassing stuff,
    This deal is defined by the falcao situation so we can't really complain about that.

    What we can complain about is why we haven't sorted this out earlier with different options.

    1m more and we could have had Mandzukic, bet Zurich is crying into a beer somewhere in Islington.

    Apparently Welbeck can play as a CB and DM as well, according to my sources.

    If Welbeck's deal only happened because United got Falcao, then no, these deals couldn't have just happened months ago.

    What's the last positive thing you've said about AFC? Never actually heard you say anything positive just moaning over and over again...smh not a real fan tbh
    Was quite positive when we beat Besiktas but after that I have seen no reason to do so. Can you?

    More of a real fan than you, you clearly don't mind finish 4th every season. I on the other hand actually want to win something and know we will not do that this season. This is isn't like last season where the situations at other teams was up in the air, they have moved further away and we've barely moved. One step forward two steps back.

    I'm not even that negative, I'm just telling you how it is.

    Very trolley dash, the Arsenal way I guess.

    When you consider that Welbeck cost around the same as Mandzukic would have cost, then you know we've really ****ed up.

    Ross McCormack doesn't look a bad buy at 11m now. We did just pay 16m for a championship striker.

    No. My source is one of the most reliable in Fantasyland. In fact he received the prestigious "Banter d'or" award last year. Dass right, it's Manchesterunited15.

This is isn't like last season where the situations at other teams was up in the air, they have moved further away and we've barely moved. One step forward two steps back.

    Glad you were positive after that, final 15 minutes showed why Sanchez will be great for us no matter where he plays, real fire to complete.

    A REAL fan gets behind the team instead of moaning after every point thats dropped or transfer target isn't got. I don't want 4th, I want Arsenal to win the premier league, the UCL, but I'm also realistic and would rather we spent WITHIN our means and had stability, rather than do a Leeds and end up in the championship by ridiculously overspending and getting into debt, which we would do if we signed half the player you want.

    Liverpool haven't moved ahead, neither has Everton really, Chelsea has but they do every year and an injury to Costa will leave them in trouble. City are also worse this season and united will take time to gel.

    I'm not happy we only signed Welbeck, but panic buying isn't the answer, I'd after we waited til Jan to get someone great than panic buy now

    Can confirm.
    In that case I'm actually looking forward to seeing the skills that Welback will bring to the team in his multi-positional role.

    Our attack looks better than last season. More goals and pace in our forward line, especially with Walcott back too. Campbell on the bench is a great option to have too.

    Wilshere will have to step up this season for our midfield to be able to compete with the big boys. Will be interesting to see what formation we use now. Hope we go back to 4-2-3-1 against the smaller teams but the 4-1-4-1 could be a good shout against the better teams. More bodies on midfield to protect the defence and not leave Arteta too exposed given his lack of pace. Obviously this is only in theory, Wenger will have to address our tactical approach to those big games for it to work in practice.

    We are one or two injuries away from a complete disaster in defence.

    I don't remember saying I wasn't going to get behind the team so I have no idea where you got that from. You need to learn to separate Arsenal and Arsene Wenger, they are not the same thing. When he goes we will still exist, before we came he existed. I don't know how many times I am going to have to say this, we are not poor we could have got a quality ST, DM and CB along with those we already have but their is no ambition at the club to do so. We have a transfer kitty of £100m, spent £65m, got around half that back (not including the CL money) we could have spent the rest and not fallen into the abyss like you seem to think would happen.

    Lol, Liverpool finished above us, they are already ahead. Along with City and Chelsea. United may have no defense but they have quality strikers and goals win games, we saw that will LFC last season, awful defense, deadly up top.

    Panic buying is not the answer?! Welbeck is the epitome of a panic buy. We won't get anyone in January, prices are even higher and you are already having a conniption about not wanting to spend money for a proper player now. We won't be able to get them in the first place. Another summer wasted.
