    Well there's been reports flying round since the summer about the possibility of us signing Gregory van der Wiel, so I guess that wouldn't surprise me.

      van der Wiel is a right-back, so I doubt he'd be a realistic signing, especially seeing as Eboue just signed a long-term deal. I'm guessing that the likeliest acquisition would be Spahic - Mertesacker, Cahill, etc. would be first-teamers, Wenger is only looking for some emergency backup.

      I don't know much about Spahic other than that he's Bosnian and his first name is Emir. I've heard good things about him though.

      Vermaelen is out for the season, you're looking for a ****ing first teamer now, even if it's just on loan.

      I sincerely hope Vermaelen doesn't become another Rosicky.

        He seems like a tough nut. I posted a video in the previous (?) thread when we were linked to him last summer, showing him slapping Marko Marin in an international game. :coma:

        It would be pretty much impossible to find a first-teamer on loan. I think we'll be looking to do with Djourou-Koscielny leading, and a new recruit providing backup.

        Alternatively, if Wenger feels that he's made a mistake in signing Koscielny - i.e. if Kos hasn't lived up to Wenger's expectations - we may sign a youngster like Sakho, with a view of incorporating him into the first team in the long run. This again is reliant on whether Wenger still has little faith in Djourou's long-term quality.

        I don't think Koscielny has been unimpressive.

        To me he defends a lot like Martin Keown used to. He just needs to learn to be a bit more positionally aware and he'll make an excellent defender. He's got the pace, aerial ability and bravery already.

        The Djourou-Koscielny partnership is fine, we've been keeping clean sheets with them and they do a pretty good job. I think Wenger will be looking for a back up, hopefully one that will be ahead of Squillaci because he has been mediocre and we look so frail with him in defence.

        I bet you it's sol. Not sure that's the best of ideas considering the time he's been having at Newcastle.

        Was on the phone and internet for an hour solid this morning at work trying to get Barca tickets.
        Finally got in and all sold out!

        Pretty peeved off....but at least I was lucky enough to see the 2-2 last year which was probably the best atmospheric game I have been to in the 14 or so years I've been going
