    Koscielny has been a great defender but he is not a leader - mertesacker has been the leader.

    I would say give the armband to arteta but I think it would be better if he was phased out next season

    I say it in the hope that Arteta is not a regular next season.

    Anything think we can get fabergas back? Barcelona fans seem to be getting on his back
    If he did join (unrealistic I know) where would he fit in, as our teams adapted since he left? Fab in cam and cazorla out wide?
    Posted from TSR Mobile
    It's a hard one because Cazorla is definitely better centrally than out wide. I don't think a central trio of Wilshere, Santi and Fabregas would work. Looks good on paper but too lightweight in reality.

    I really dont think Wenger's going to conduct a major revamp of the squad at all. Well get rid of the deadwood for sure, but they dont play anyway so where's the room for the new players going to come from? Well bring a new striker(possibly two if we manage to sell Bendtner/Chamakh) in but everywhere else on the pitch we've got a large number of players. AOC/Podolski can barely get a game and we have Wilshere currently on the bench for instance so I really dont see how Wenger's going to bring in another 2/3 on top of an already congested squad.

    Wenger often seems more concerned with his players future than he is with Arsenal's present. So no way is he going to proactively replace Gervinho, Sagna etc without someone forcing his hand. Depressing.
    Realistically there's not gonna be a overhaul in terms of players until a new manager comes in.

    We don't really need a complete overhaul anyway. 2 signings will probably make us into a top team - a striker and a physical defensive midfielder.

    The other signings include young players for the future (like Selva iirc from barcelona) and adding squad depth etc.

    where you get that from?

    Not a fan of higuain, hes flops in every big match. He has got a pretty amazing goal scoring record though and he puts a shift in

    Just heard CSKA Sofia fans dug a grave on the middle of the pitch with a tombstone and everything for their owner lol. Stan kroenke is lucky he doesn't own that club.

    The manager said it http://www1.skysports.com/football/n...-Karim-Benzema

    He's quite clinical tbh compared to what we've got now. And signing him could be a step in the right direction for arsenal. Only problem is I don't see us getting him if man city swoop in with their cheque book

    yeh Id agree with the city thing, having him and jovetic just behind him would have been amazing for us they just lack electric. Both would cost about 25mill but would prefer to have benzema.

    Wont surprise me if hes part of a deal to bring bale to madrid

    Concerning goalkeeper, isn't julio cesar a no brainer? Will defo leave QPR, has hinted he wants to stay in London, wouldn't cost loads, is good and of an age that he can mentor szczesney for a couple of years before moving aside?

    Yeah but Wenger has difficulty to see the blighting obvious.

    To be honest, I of course wouldn't say no to Higuain, but I'd prefer a pacier striker. I think it was apparent against Dortmund he lacked that crucial half a yard, and he doesn't necessarily possess the ingenuity to his play to negate it. A player like Suarez, say, is able to mitigate the fact he isn't lightning quick by being brilliant creatively and technically. Bergkamp was the same. Higuain isn't in the same bracket, unfortunately.

    As regards other potential transfers, I think Zurich is right - we'll bring in two, tops. In a dream world, we'd buy a top class striker, a utility defender (one who can play centre back and right back) and two midfielders (some African behemoth and a flexible creative type). But I think we have to take into consideration that Wenger will most likely bring Gnabry into the fold next season, and perhaps even Aneke, who's had a blinding last few months with Crewe.

    We brought in 3 players last year and if we truly don't have the financial restraints this year that we did before then I don't see why we can't bring in at least 3 again?

    Arsenal will bring 3-4 in. I don't understand why everybody has this misconception about Wenger that he's a incapable of signing the right players this summer

    I'm not saying that we couldn't bring in three or more players, nor am I questioning Wenger's ability in the transfer market. I'm simply suggesting that two signings is the most likely outcome. If we accept, for argument's sake, that we sell none of our current first team players (that means we disregard the likes of Arshavin, $quid, Chamakh, Park and Bendtner, because none of them actually play) and sign the optimum number of players you offered, sevchenko, four, we'd literally have no room for everyone. We'd find ourselves in exactly the same position that we're in now: players on substantial wages not even making the matchday squad. Take our most recent league fixture, against Utd, as an example: our bench for that game was as competitive as any, and that was without the likes of Diaby and Fabianski. So unless we move some players on, four is a long shot.

    We're gonna need squad depth and good substitutes to bring on as well as make sure we're good when we have injuries

    I'd rather we had too many good players than too less
