    Anyone reckon we'll get hammered by Spurs on final day of the window and the board will put pressure on him to panic buy? Just a thought..

    What would happen because of these injures, if you didn't even qualify for the champions league?

    I think the fact he's shaved off about £400k/w of wages through removing about 30 players means he's going for quality players rather than just having the quantity but an abundance of rubbish players.

    He's just looking for the right players. I think he'll use it on about 3 players and use youth for the rest.

    Wolfsburg have officially signed Gustavo.

    Wenger's saying in him press conference he's looking to add 'quality more than numbers'. Well time is running. If he leaves it until deadline day, he'll have no option but to add numbers as he did in 2011.

    I doubt anyone's gonna be bought in before Wednesday's match against Fenerbahce, leaving us just over a week. Crazy Arsene.

    Wasn't Gustavo 'right' enough? He'd have added real quality and is no average player. But we know Wenger, he's gonna get Flamini now. What a joke.

    No doubt we've all been taken for fools by Wenger. We bought into the £70m summer, forgetting who the seller was.

    This is farcical. I am genuinely disgusted and worried for this season.

    The thing i can't comprehend is how small Arsenal's squad is with the opening day tomorrow. Can't believe you didn't go for Luiz Gustavo, however there is still time left in the window, if somehow you pull off a better signing then fair enough, i take it back. But this just seems like 2011 all over again...

    Arsenal still having to qualify for the CL might still have something to go for the lack of activity, however with the squad as thin as it is the possibility grows Arsenal may struggle to qualify, even though i have no doubt you will.

    Bayern Munich: Luiz Gustavo signs for Bundesliga champions


    Wolfsburg have signed Brazilian Luiz Gustavo fromGerman treble winners Bayern Munich on a five-year deal.
    Gustavo, 26, who joined Bayern from Hoffenheim in 2011, was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal this summer, but has opted to remain in the Bundesliga.
    The midfielder, who scored six goals in 64 games for Bayern, could make his debut at home to Schalke on Saturday.
    "The 26-year-old has signed a deal to 2018 and will be officially presented later today," Bayern said.
    The Bavarian side won the Bundesliga title, Champions League and German Cup last season but Gustavo was not guaranteed regular first team action under new coach Pep Guardiola, which could have threatened his national team spot ahead of the 2014 World Cup in his home country.
    Former Barcelona boss Guardiola has signed Thiago Alcantara from his old club and Mario Gotze from Borussia Dortmund, leaving Gustavo down the pecking order.
    He said earlier this week: "I have a contract until 2015 so there is no reason to despair, but I want to move to a club where I can play."
    Wolfsburg have spent much of the last few seasons in the lower half of the table after winning the 2009 Bundesliga title, and lost their season opener to Hanover 96 last week.

    It says about joining Bayern and joining Wolfsburg numerous times apiece, that journalist! Actually it was slightly edited by the time i got a copy and paste in so it didn't look so bad.

    Why are we no longer in for Gustavo? Have I missed something?

    And I told everyone not to be excited about the Gustavo rumours... he signs to Wolfsburg, typical really. :facepalm2:

    I can't say with any confidence that we'll sign any 'quality' players. I'm expecting more of a panic buy at the end when we realise we've only thinned the squad with adding anything. I hope Wenger has a damn good plan...
