    OK he might still have it in him but you know what we are while Arsene continues to rule over us. That tendency to fall flat on our faces regardless of the players we have...
    In other words, even doing the most un-Arsene thing and spending loads won't change the end of season result.

    I don't know, I would just be happy to see that Giroud is getting the **** away from the starting spot.

    Vardy may have only had one good season, but he is a lot more deserving in his level of skill to be an Arsenal starting striker than Giroud will ever be.

    Mate, our fans have been saying we're too nice for a long time. We sign two lads that look like absolute ********s that will not take **** from anyone. And the fans are not happy still?! We're not Real Madrid ffs.

    To be fair I thought we had one in Gabriel, but he's very soft in reality. I think Wenger's finally just thought "**** it" and has had enough with the 'solidarity' project that he preaches every season.

    I won't be convinced unless we sign at least 3 more players. A world class striker is an absolute must, needless to say. Perhaps we can think of Vardy, if it goes through, as a replacement for the injured Welbeck, albeit they are entirely different players. We will sign another defender but this has to be someone who will start and take a commanding role in the team; more than likely this will just be a squad player...

    I have very low expectations that we will make that marquee striker signing. Aubameyang would be my dream, but one can only hope. :moon:

    Vardy is not a long term solution. He is 2-3 seasons max, a big roll of the dice. And if we win the league with him who cares about whether he is long term? We need a good run in Europe too, to get some belief back into this club. I would hate to think we have peaked as an FA Cup winning team but unless something big happens that is what we look like.

    If we win the league, it gives us a lot more prestige than we have right now, to go out and get the most sought after strikers.

    Make no mistake about it, Vardy will finish off chances. He will also be wanting to prove that he is amongst the best. Whether he will make it here is debatable, it's not easy to be an heir of Henry, Bergkamp, Wright and co. But, I am sure with Ozil etc pinging passes to him he will thrive.

    Defensively I am not too keen on Benatia, too injury prone. Gabriel has not been great, Koulialy looks much more established.

    We should see it this way: if we don't invest... our best players will leave. And then we are back to square one.

    I personally am praying to the God Jesus Christ and wishing the Buddhist luck in their attempt to keep vardy. I hope like everything this season, they succeed and we fail. Don't want that prick near my club. Sign lacazette and morata ffs.

    Such a Liverpool thing isn't it.
    And yet it's Arsenal trying to do it..

    (Original post by James.Carnell)
    Liverpool offered him £140,000 per week but can't meet his release clause as they're not in the CL , yet you laugh at us for finishing 4th. LOL.
    Considering Arsenal don't know how release clauses work (see Suarez circa 2013), let's go through it.

    - Vardy has a release clause which means if a CL qualified club make a bid (mooted to be £20mil) then Leicester have to accept
    - if a non-CL club makes a bid then Leicester can negotiate or reject it

    Now, what do you think will happen in a non-CL club bids more than the release clause? Do you think Leicester will turn down extra money?

    Errrr your clubs trying to get into the action as well though........
    Are we just going to ignore the fact that we did trigger the clause and you guys acted illegally/ backstabbing Suarez and chose to ignore it. Should I post you that video of your chairman admitting to it.

    I don't think you know how release clause works. You can bid 100m if you want to. If vardy wants to come he's ours.

    Yeah he won't make it in a system that requires its striker to be able to hold the ball up and do a lot with little influence in a game. Don't know if you've notice but Arsenal aren't the most direct of teams.
    Essentially a better Giroud.

    Arsenal can go for him by all means. Will be lol's once they realise he isn't as good as they think.
    Comparing him to Giroud is just as bad as comparing him to Van Persie.

    You really think Arsene wants his team to play slow football against defensive teams? Looking purely at his skillset, Vardy is the sort of player Arsenal should be targeting.

    Great signing if it comes off. Not many strikers available on the market and he's a finisher pure and simple.

    Hi Ali
    Is it that deep man? Honestly do you need to see a psychiatrist or something? The word gets thrown around a lot but you genuinely have an obsession with me. Leave me alone.

    The guy is a confirmed bell. The avatar, and the way he types gives it away.

    No wonder he's taking BTEC'S hahahaha.

    I didn't compared him to Giroud.
    Do you even comprehend.

    I said Arsenal would benefit from a striker who does Giroud's job, but better. Lukaku would be a beast.

    Fundamental issues still remain. Arsenal do not play the system which allows Vardy to thrive. Do you really think Wenger is going to accommodate a striker after he's ****ed about for years?
