    Remember when Zurich was telling us how Arsenal can afford any player this window
    The thing is we can, we just don't want to. The board aren't the ones who dither about a player every 5 minutes, it's Arsene.

    Are people forgetting that we signed Alexis ****ing Sanchez? He will be a ridiculously good player for Arsenal. Not the marquee striker people were dreaming of but provides something we've missed in attack for years, i.e. trickery and close control. Looks like he is improving with every performance and has the mentality to carry on that momentum.

    But the point is we still have bags of cash and holes in the team. Always 2 players away from having a proper team.

    He's just a replacement for Gervinho. Can't believe it took so long for us to replace such a valuable player.

    Gervinho was utter piss, can't try to compare the two and be taken seriously.

    Thought Alonso was £5m. Tbh though they needed experienced cover who has played well at the highest level. They did what they had to.

    In terms of analogy though, it was all sensible business, much more so than a £70m punt on a guy who just had a good world cup and nothing much else to show for it.

    As has been repeated for almost 30 pages now in this thread. I agree to an extent but along the way people have started to over-exaggerate the weaknesses in our team and not acknowledge how it has improved.

    We have good depth in attack and midfield.

    The lack of cover for our back four is the thing that will hurt us the most this season and is the thing Wenger deserves the most criticism for.

    Think Arsenal are in a similar situation to United with regards to injuries in defense. Though Arsenal likely have a better/more stable midfield, whilst United have better forward options. So who knows which club wins say in the scenario where both defenses get injuries!

    Yeah, basically. Falcao will make mince meat of this league imo.

    I went there. Fair play for trying though, this place needs lightening up.

    RVP offers more in link up play. Falcao has 4 assists in 88 games...

    Their goalscoring rates are similar too since 2011 so I'd rather have RVP.
