    Khedira is very very similar to Ramsey

    Tbh, I honestly reckon Flamini and Ramsey is a solid CM partnership. Problem is Arteta always plays when fit...
    Arteta is miles ahead of Flamini. Criminally underrated by most fans. He may have lost his legs last season but the guy was one of our most important signings of that trolley dash era. All Flamini is good for is a guaranteed yellow card.

    I will be so pissed off we get Khedira. Where is this even coming off. Dude had one decent game against one of the worst Brazilian teams in 40 years.

    Will you be saying that watching Arteta flounder around the midfield as attackers brush past him like he's not even there? He's fine for when we're at home vs Swansea and he can just chill at CM.

    Flamini is not really talented but he's a presence and provides cover.

    Flamini was on the pitch when we shipped 6 goals to city. You're scapegoating Arteta for poor tactical setup of the whole team. Just because Flamini goes for the spectacular tackles doesn't make him a better player. His passing range and accuracy are vastly inferior to Arteta and we don't retain possession as well as a result.

    Having said that we should be bringing in a player who is a significant upgrade on both of them.

    I don't admire their money I want us to aspire to their play style. They've played some of the best attacking football of the modern age

    How so? Think it's £35m with potential add ons but even so, what player can you sign for that money of that quality in this market?

    Lallana=£25m, Herrera=£30m, Lamela=£30m, Jovetic= £25m, etc. We got £12m for a 50% sell on in Vela if you think about it so for me Sanchez is an absolutely bargain

    I personally think all those players were overpayed for bar maybe Jovetic (only watched glimpses of him before), but I guess that could just be me not accepting inflation in the market nowadays.

    When I heard bids quoted at around 27 mil + add ons I was extremely happy with that and though that was a steal but with the 35m valuation when you consider the circumstances such as Alexis wanting to come here and Barca wanting to get rid I think we maybe could have got him for less. Then again I do trust Wenger to drive as hard a bargain as possible.

    Where has the 35mil come from? I thought it was 35 million euros.

    For some perspective, Luke Shaw just went for £27m

    Schneiderlin.

    Knows the league, would be cheaper and I think he fits our team better than the others. Khedira is too much like Ramsey and too offensive even if he is quality, Bender is just like Schneiderlin when I've watched him but a bit injury prone and probably more expensive. I'm not sure if Bayer or Southampton want to sell though.

    Don't really care about the fee. Even if it's 35m, that's just the increase in tv money from pl last season compare to the season before.
