    Looks promising for Alexis then. Just imagine the scouse meltdown when Sanchez picks Arsenal. ''You sell Suarez, we sign Alexis Sanchez, Alexis Sanchez, Alexis Sanchez'' :coma:

    If we get him for £25m then we'll have had done a brilliant piece of business, wonder if Wenger would play him as a striker actually

    What about a 2 striker partnership with Giroud


    Although Giroud has really been abysmal at times this cup

    Getting Debuchy would be weird. Relative no age difference between him and Sagna and he's inferior to Sagna. Sagna is known to the club and has ability to cover at CB.

    It suggest that the club is still functioning frugally in terms of wages. Surely overall, Debuchy would cost us more than giving Sagna 120k over 3 years.

    I'm not that keen on Debuchy either but he is a pretty decent RB. I think he would suit the team a lot more than Sagna because of his attacking instincts, Sagna tended to stifle our attacks on the right flank by passing back or sideways instead of crossing. The Newcastle fans I know are disappointed at him leaving and they rate him quite highly, if he can do a good job defending in their **** system then he should have little problem in Arsenal's.

    I think Sagna had some good crosses last season but what with Giroud being in the box...

    Apparently Liverpool are offering Alexis 150k a week, topping our offer of 135k.

    Tbf we should have given Sagna what he wanted instead signing Debuchy. I don't like the idea of sacrificing our defensive stability for the sake of a few good crosses. In Sagna we've lost a player that has already gelled with the team, has more Prem experience and our 4th choice CB. Keeping Sagna would have still allowed Jenks to develop. Given Sagna waht he wantyed would still have been cheaper than Debuchytransfer fee and wages for 3 years

    But if Debuchy can provide the same competence in defence Sagna has plus some more attacking thrust I have no complaints. I just have to wait to see him play for Arsenal before making a judgement. It much better to have best defensive record in the league than the attacking record. Proof ?

    Well, I got some stats from statto, taking into the top 3 teams for each year and there position.

    2013/14
    Spoiler:
    Show

    Top 3 attacking
    Man City, scored 102 goals
    Liverpool, scored 101 goals
    Chelsea scored 71 goals
    Finished 1,2 and 3 respectively
    Top 3 defensively (goals conceded)
    Chelsea, 27
    Man city, 37
    Everton, 39
    Finished 3, 1 and 5 respectively


    2012/13
    Spoiler:
    Show

    Top 3 attacking, goals scored
    Manchester Utd, 86
    Chelsea, 75
    Arsenal, 72
    Finished 1, 3 and 4 respectively
    Top 3 defensively, goals defensively
    Man city, 34
    Arsenal, 37
    Chelsea, 39
    Finished 2,4 and 3 respectively


    2011/12
    Spoiler:
    Show

    Top 3 attacking, goals scored
    Man city, 93
    Manchester Utd, 89
    Arsenal, 74
    Finished 1,2 and 3 respectively
    Top 3 defensively, goals defensively
    Man city, 29
    Manchester Utd, 33
    Everton/ Liverpool, 40
    Finished 1,2 and 7/8 respectively


    Both show a trend of finishing in the top 3 attacking or defensively will lead to a top 3 finish. However, finishing in top 3 of goals scored led to a similar finish in the final table, while in 2011/12 the team who conceded the third least goals, I.e. Everton/Liverpool finished 7 & 8 respectively.

    If you guys get Sanchez that's a huge statement tbh. Could still do with a RB, CB, DM and ST though.

    Also baconbutty is not a troll. If you read his posts objectively he's probably in top 5 posters in terms of knowledge.

    Well Sanchez and Debuchy is a decent start, plus a DM and then backup CB/GK and we'll be laughing.

    He started off very trolly in his posts though, better now I will admit.

    I'm scared that Wenger is waking up in the market if Madrid really are in for Falcao and you get Benzema.... Think your a dead cert for top 4 anyway. Your the best flat-track bullies in the league so your more likely to win the league than drop out of top 4, tbh once you get a midfield general and a clinical striker you'll start to win big games which is all your lacking.

    Yeah I've noticed that, nowadays he speaks more sense though.

    I don't think signing Sanchez will stop Wenger buying a striker. Someone not too pricey like Remy maybe.

    Glad he's not going to Liverpool. They're going to be put back in their place next season.

    I'd take Remy in a heartbeat (if we got Sanchez) because of Girouds recent performances

    Definitely not an Arsenal fan though, or if he is then he's a pure masochist. One thing being unhappy with the direction of the the club, quite bizarre to relish in it's failings and belittle it at every opportunity.

    You finished exams now ini.

    Baconbutty knows his stuff personally. May seem that he's a bit cynical about his own club but he generally has things spot on and puts thought into his posts.

    I reckon Newcastle will ask for too much.

    I find it weird that you guys tried to buy Cabaye for 10M as well, that's ridiculous personally.

    He's not actually trolled people, generally his posts are highly objective but people refuse to see his points without bias because they think he has an agenda against them.
