    Remember the days where Cech was the last piece of the 'puzzle' to win the league
    Nah the missing piece is a BBG to play cdm. Get one still do ****.

    The missing piece is a CB, striker etc. Get them will still do ****.

    The piece piece is that arsene's contract has not expired. He keeps getting away with the most unpragmatic approach to getting a squad together yet preaches pragmatism.

    Still finishing top3.

    Oi @leinad2012 the economics expert, thoughts on this independent analysis on Arsenal finances posted three months ago: https://www.css-investments.com/wp-c...5-16-Final.pdf

    Notice how a lot of the £200m is going towards wages (and thus, waste of money paying those who don't play)

    Had a quick read but on holiday so not going to go into depth into the report. Pretty certain it said staff wages were £159mil. Obviously that isn't all players but you would.expect at least £100mil of it to be.

    Is it a waste? Probably. We have far too many squad players right now. But then, we are Arsenal, and where normal teams would need a squad of 23 (cover for each position plus an extra keeper) we seem to need 30 at least because we have 10 injuries on the go normally.

    (Also, on a different note, I think prices have reached their peak now. Teams lower down are going to start to realise it's much cheaper to run a siccessful academy than buy players. Teams like Everton spunking £30mil on average players aren't going to be sustainable compared to Southampton, who seem to be able to run one of the most successful academies in the world for a year for the price of 1 Bolasie.)

    If we've learnt one thing, it's that the move to the Emirates was awfully timed in hindsight. The extra 25,000 seats bring in £25mil extra revenue per season tops, not considering the extra running costs. That's not much compared to tv deals and sponsorship. Meanwhile, a certain team has had a 60000 stadium paid for and run at the taxpayers cost and even Spurs have developed at the right time. Our stadium cost as much as united or city spend on players in 2 transfer windows.

    Nah, I've lost faith in him. I think he's totally inept in the modern day transfer market.

    And in terms of actual football, he has no chance against Pep and Jose.

    The only thing he's doing right is delivering on a minimum target. If he didn't have such an inflated squad because of injuries, we would have more to spend on transfers

    He's getting paid a fortune, guy seems to be doing fine... for himself (and the board). Wenger sold us out for loot and personal gain.

    I genuinely believe Wenger is senile. He needs to be put in a home.

    We're not getting a 'madness', only perpetual sadness.
