    50m for Torress is highly admirable I must admit. Easily a GOAT transfer. And thieving players from other clubs as well. I probably should apologise for doubting your faultess opinion.
    They've just sold luiz for 50m mata for 38 de bruyne for 22

    We sold nasri 22, fabregas 29, van persie 24

    They put us to shame they've bought brilliantly this window as well they took a punt on world class talent like Torres that's why they compete at the highest level and we don't

    3.5 years ago. Since that fiasco we've been pretty good in transfer dealings, the past year in particular we've done better transfer dealings than Arsenal personally.

    You dithered about for 3 months and bought a luxury signing that you didn't need while we've actually bought players that were required for the team. So I agree with BaconButty.
    I must've forgotten the striker you bought last summer and how you didn't dither about either and steal players from the nose of others.

    That luxury signing wasn't done in a day btw.

    But of course, we are only ever allowed to pick a timescale to **** on arsenal and ignore everything else. Wouldn't help with the arsenal circle jerk otherwise.

    Haram meat is never wrong. I agree.

    Baconbutty clearly the dupe of a Chelsea supporter. Always thought it was Jam, but now he's having a conversation with himself if so..I don't know what to believe :pierre:
    BaconButty is quite clearly an Arsenal fan, may have a soft spot for City since a lot of his favourite players play for them.

    Why would anybody think I'm BaconButty? I don't even troll Arsenal fans any more as it's clearly a case of kicking them while they're down if I'm winding them up so to say that I deliberately have another account just to pretend I'm an Arsenal supporter is quite shocking to say the least.

    Admiration for Chelsea? Devaluing Arsenal's FA cup win? baconbutty is obviously not an Arsenal supporter. I honestly don't know is more stupid baconbutty himself or the people who agree with him and his anti Arsenal drivel
    I'm an idiot for saying we need to show ambition and improve. This moron here is why we will never achieve greatness

    You know that signing that was free and because there was no value in the market for a world class striker at the time(Higuain not good enough, Cavani 50M, Falcao 47M). :yy:

    We didn't dither in the summer window, we asked for Wayne Rooney, they didn't budge so we went for Eto'o for free.

    Always the victim

    The way I see it as a fan of football is that Wenger needs to stop being this idealist that trusting players and youth will pay off in the trophy haul. There were excuses until last season, he won a trophy so fair enough but he could have won the PL with a striker in Jan and this year all the other teams are stronger.

    You'll come top 4 no doubt though. Arsene said himself that insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

    Nonsense spend the whole 160m and sell off 5 of our starting players then maybe we will have 200m to spend and can buy a squad like City's right

    Nasri £24m, Fabregas ended up as £34m this very week after Barca payed up remaining conditional clauses.And if you want to talk about selling well then just run through some of Wenger's greatest hits from Overmars, through to Adebayor all the way to Song. He's mugged off so many clubs :laugh:


    Put us to shame? You mean picking up a player who we rejected and who continues to wistfully talk about Arsenal in press conferences :laugh:

    Diego Costa is at least as likely to flop as he is to succeed.

    That David Luiz transfer isnt any kind of genius anyway, either Chelsea/PSG are cooking the books or its just a case of getting lucky. Newcastle got £35m for Carroll but I wouldnt say it was through any particular genius :laugh:

    We cant compare ourselves to the plastic clubs, they dont have to behave like proper clubs.

    What? Stop posting complete and utter drivel. We have 160m in the bank. More than every single premier league club combined it's an absolute ****ing joke that it never gets spent and don't let your agenda towards me convince you otherwise

    Here we go again with the victim card

    For the record I don't deny that we should be spending a lot more of the 160m.

    Here's the thing though. You didn't actually attempt to buy a striker and decided to turn your attentions to Nicky B.

    We went and bought a striker because he was clearly needed.

    But I guess it's the same thing just because it suits your point. :dontknow:

    And if Cesc is a £50m player, how come his last 2 transfers have been for just over half that? And how come there was a whopping 1 club in for him at £27m? :laugh:

    How can you know about Suarez' clause and still not get your man?

    Don't talk about john Henry blah blah, if you wanted to you could have taken them to court for them not respecting the release clause but Arsene decided not to.

    Essentially you managed to actually get the money for your man and still not manage to get him. :lol:
