    But then he's not doing what he's good at. Wilshere is the kinda player who'll do what it takes to win, even if that means sacrificing himself. Just hope he stays fit because he has it.

    I agree! But he's gonna get snapped! I suppose he gets other teams yellow cards! If he could stay fit, he'll probably be the player who wins the most Yellows for his opposition. Ramsey bossed it yesterday, those two playing on form with Cazorla and rosicky and Arteta

    edit: I know Rosicky won't play when Arteta is back, would be nice to see a 4 5 1... that one being Benzema ! :O .. lol

    While we're dreaming, add another ~5mill of the CL money we just got and get Fellani.

    I don't understand why you think Wenger has exactly £70m to spend. Our cash reserves are in excess of £150m. I imagine a large percent is available to spend

    Di-Maria and Benzema? What have you Arsenal fans been smoking?

    I swear It was from 'omg we're getting Higuain, he's a world class goal scorer' to 'wasn't worth the 35m Napoli payed for him'. Then it was 'Suarez is a world class player, Liverpool won't be able to keep hold of him. With him we'll defo be title contenders'.

    You guys don't learn do you?

    Arsenal working on deals for Real Madrid duo Benzema & Di Maria. Also pursuing GK & defender, could spend £100m: http://bbc.in/19y8O4o #afc

    I'll believe that when I see it :eek:

    Desperation and gullibility. It's weird how every single newspaper posted this story right after the match. It was either leaked by Arsenal PR or Benzema's agent, considering rumours he's about to get a new deal.

    Di Maria makes more sense though once Bale arrives.

    Lmao.

    Benzema deal is pretty unlikely tbh, I don't think Suarez is going this window. Di Maria would be a good but for you lot though.

    I think what Wenger meant by the transfer window essentially starting now is that players that you were targeting were waiting to see if you qualify before continuing talks.

    I'd imagine he has quite a few deals almost fully negotiated already, was just waiting for qualification.

    why are you interested in Benzema

    why not Doumbia - big, black, strong, pacey and scores a lot of goals.. also has the "clinical finisher" trait on FIFA 13 which they dont give too easily (even benzema doesnt have it)

    Reckon they'd sell for 25m since they need to raise cash and because hes now surplus to requirements
    Real need to raise cash. This is real we're talking about they don't need the money.

    If Bale does go to RM (which is looking likely), CR7 will move to ST/CF position. There's no way both bale and ronaldo can play as wingers, they'd be too imbalanced. Plus, they've got a couple of young strikers that they're looking to play.

    It's a big risk but Real are clearly struggling to fund Bale and it would be a complete embarrassment for them should they not land him.

    I think Benzema is worth that £40m. He's suited to our system. Let's not forget what Falcao, Cavani, Suarez, Rooney, Higuain went/are going for

    Higuain for £34m or Benzema for £40m. Easy choice. I can see it happening but I think it will cost Ancellotti his job at the end of the season.
    Not really. Bale does work hard defensively. With 2 of alonso, illaramendi khedira playing they'd cover the flanks and tbh, they'd just outscore everyone if they're imbalanced anyway. There's no problem here.

    Bit in bold, got any form of evidence for that? We know what madrid do. They buy players for world record fees and sell their other class players who don't get games for peanuts(although they got a lot for higuain tbf but he gets games). If they could do that 3 years ago why won't they do the exact same thing now? Cos of financial fairplay? :rofl: They offered tottenham the money and they've rejected it so far...

    Benzema isn't going to arsenal ffs. Get that out of your head. Why would they replace him with a guy who'd probably continue his ban in spain(like barton did in france due to it being assault) suarez would also be troublesome and he'd be on the bench a lot. Furthermore your logic is they struggle to fun bale so lets sell benzema, buy suarez for the same price and buy bale too. Eitherway it's a deficit of large proportions, especially when you've considered isco and illaramendi being nearly 60m pounds alone...

    Plus I don't think ancelotti is as stupid to do the same mistake he did at chelsea and leave the squad absolutely thin in the striker position if he sell benzema and only gets bale due to 'finances.'

    good choice would rather have him than suarez

    young, black, strong, pacey, unloyal + scores a lot of goals

    could've got him for 25m when he handed in the transfer request but now theres no chance
