    The counter argument is that if you do a deal early enough then clubs have all summer with the cash to take their time with replacements? Dortmund managed to sign plenty of players at the start of the summer tbh.
    Na, because Spurs in 13/14 bought players for cheaper as they didn't sell Bale at that point. What happens is that a club know you have money from a previous sale and are more likely to fleece you for it.

    Anyway I'd be pretty happy with Arsenal's window. Only issue is that they didn't just buy Lacazette or a more established striker, but I'd assume Lucas Perez has similar qualities, can play on the wing as well as be a genuine option up top. Gnabry going to Bayern is a **** up though but I think just start Chamberlain and see how he develops as it's over for Walcott.

    Just ****ing lol at the fans who were thinking Wilshere would start at Juventus and now he's going to Bournemouth

    Sums up his whole career really.
    Some guy said Only Pjanic and Marchisio would be ahead of him in their midfield.

    LMAO

    Gnabry has gone to Werder Bremen. Knowing our luck he will be our equivalent of the KDB situation, the guy has Bayern transfer in a few years written all over him.

    But hey, he had to leave as Wenger for some unknown reason has faith in Walcott. I am sure that Gnabry counts as a homegrown player too so the homegrown reason for preferring Walcott makes no sense. It all makes no sense considering how low Walcott's ceiling is.

    Fwiw, i actually rate Ox highly. Last year Sanchez had large patches of bad form but people rarely mention it as he's Sanchez.

    However, with Ox, I feel like he has shown a lot of promise, he's got a much higher ceiling as a well rounded player than Walcott does. There has been many times I seen Ox play and think that if he was German and would cost £50m then people would be saying "sign him up". In reality I don't see there being much difference between him and Draxler at this point in their careers.

    Theo though.... 27 years old and he's actually regressed from his younger years. Absolute disappointment of a player. He's 28 soon...

    It only needed one torn ACL for that to happen. Prepare for the same to happen to one Danny Welbeck

    Danny Welbeck's future is one where he's our substitute striker. Which tbh, he would not be bad at. That way we can also mitigate the chances of him having another serious injury.

    Swear Iwobi almost has the same number of career goals and assists as Ox in the PL?

    I remember when he burst on the scene last year he was averaging a goal/assist a game for a while

    Then Iwobi is a good player.

    Why do you care anyway? You're a Utd fan.

    Think you have me mistaken.

    Had a SAF avatar because he's the greatest manager of all time.

    Had a Rashford avatar because he's the future of English football.

    At least at Bournemouth there are a lot of residential homes to help people recover from illness or injury. Unlike the area represented in Parliament by Jeremy Corbyn.
