    What in 2011/12?
    I don't think he had the green light to spend as much as he has been allocated this window nor the club stating they wanted to spend big

    I don't know, but the way the boards have spoken about this window seems different to 2011

    I've seen those articles. They're ridiculous. It's like people literally thought, "hey, Balotelli is sponsored by Puma, and Arsenal's new kit deal is with Puma, and even though it makes no sense, 2+2 COULD equal 17!".

    I've said this before, but I don't rate costa as high as most people + the media do. Every time I've seen him play, he hasn't been anything special :/

    Yeah yeah he's been injured and that's why he's playing **** at this tounrament but even in the la liga, I've never seen anything from him that's wow'd me- not like Falcao or Cavani did in the season before last
    Tbh with this season and the world cup so far, Cavani has been very underwhelming imo.

    Cavani doesn't seem like a big game player

    I'm sure the cash was there but again I just think the board has been more open and seemed to have approached this window differently to 2011

    Even with the 120m+ I don't think it was reported that we had much intention of spending most of it compared to this season where they're already saying were going to spend


    Just have to wait until July I guess

    Yeah definately. I was on about the season before last, when him and Falcao emerged as the best strikers in the world. Even Falcao hasn't been amazing this season lol

    He missed that sitter against Chelsea in the champions league too do you remember

    Last year was a ****ing atrocious window. How much was really spent? The wage bill was lowered considerably and gervinho was sold

    I dont really understand the Puma + Balotelli=Arsenal thing either.

    Puma already have Italy so where's the synergy in having him at Arsenal for them?

    Gotta say Wenger is a don when it comes to selling players.

    Shame Sagna went for free though. But RVP for 24M, Nasri for 20 something million and both in the last years of their contracts. Clichy was the only guy who went for a fair price for the other party personally and then you had Gibbs who is younger and better. Clichy got dropped for Kolarov in the big games anyway.

    Song's technique, passing range and final ball at Arsenal was second to none really. To bad he was slack defensively

    Gervinho sale is looking a bit funny now though.

    Just didn't fit the team.
