fuk u ;)
The deal is imminent according to AW, so do not worry about it
You remember what happened to the boy who cried wolf? They f*****g killed him.
Our last games have all been on Sundays..which i kind of like
Arsenal: Mikel Arteta's agent says he signed 1-year contract extension; Sidelined until April due to ankle injury.

El Capitán !
Arsenal lining up 20yr old defender Daniele Rugani to follow up the signing of Paulista.

http://talksport.com/football/arsenal-could-follow-gabriel-paulista-deal-move-another-defender-150127133987#FigPXqJCJDKcsZc9.99

obviously there are no quotes or sources with Talksport, as usual....however, as we love to speculate, does anyone follow Serie A closely? Any opinions on this kid?
Daniele Rugani is co-owed by Juventus, and also has been capped in the National team recently, back in Nov.
Juve won't let him go unless there is an ridiculous bid for him- more likely a loan deal than anything.
A loan deal would still benefit us. Assuming Paulista deal is done then we would have Merts-Kos-Pauli at CB. A loan deal for our 4th choice rotation option would be ok as a stop gap solution until we can arrange for a permanent target in the summer.
hate when arsenal comes on really early, especially on Saturdays, when school is closed and the only time I have time to catch some sleep. lol smh
+1
Just be glad you don't live in Australia.
+5
Yup living in New Zealand, i wake up at 4 and 5 in the morning, even 2am sometimes.
Ever heard of skipping? Ever since I left England, I've regularly called in sick after matchday, particularly the Champions League games. I'm probably what people call the employee from hell, not that I care, football is my life ;)

Edit: Would be nice if the whole world did that.
+1
^used to do that...but i stopped, cause the head of our department is about to retire....And we're all fighting to get that job.

@LGW , Lots of people take fake leave but for number of reasons , good thing about my work place is that though officially i have to start work at 8 Am but i can go late , although have to leave late to compensate that but its nice :D
+1
@LastGaspWinnner I used to always watch them on my computer in class while I pretended to take notes or just open games on my phone if I was at an unpaid internship lol. I would also miss big events like friend's pre wedding parties haha.

Now that we don't win too much, I'm taking less risk watching. Also NBC and Arsenal post replays so it's all good.
if napoli don't make the cl next season i'd love to see higuain here.
hells yeah
+1
Giroud, Welbeck and Akpom are the reasons why we don't need him, spend the money on the areas where it's most needed.
+5
why not insigne?
Agreed with Viper, even Sanogo is already a good option for us.
+1
We really don't need another striker, unless he's like Cavani, Messi or something lol

Akpom need a season loan spell at a PL side or at a Championship side. Same goes to Sanogo, I think another season of loan then he's ready.

We have a strong squad with depth. In every position we have 1 or 2 players that can cover. CB was a must, now Pualista is brought, we're on a better path.

In the summer, we should offload players that are not apart of our future. The most important for us right now is "time" to gel together and develop a strong chemistry within our players and coaches.
higuain is a tank if FUT. scored 5 goals for me in a crazy game i won 5-3 yesterday.
lets not get into FM. lmao
+4
Not this again...
inconsistent as hell ,

Though i highly doubt that Madrid will let benzema go but he will be perfect fit for arsenal .
I think Higuain will be a good buy, better in term of finishing, skills and positioning. I think he is the only attackers that leave madrid and still doing well.

If u notice, players who are former teammates of messi, played better after leaving Barca, eg Alexis and Cesc, song
While Ex Ronaldo teammates left madrid but turned out not as good they that they used to be. Eg Di maria and ozil. The only exception i tot was higuain, who is still playing well IMO.
@Diontan524 , you cant compare these players , although Alexis and Cesc were important players for us but unfortunately they never became vital players , also you have to note that both Alexis and song improved quite a lot after their time at Barcelona .

Di maria and Ozil both haven't managed to replicate what they did at Madrid but both have been used in different position and role and have lots of interruption through injuries .
+1
Players of that calibre tend to excel when the teams system takes close regard of their particular characteristics. At Barca its already the Messi show, and other attacking players job is to ensure that the platform for messi's success is made, at Arsenal and Chelsea respectively the players have a team infrastructure to support thier talents, they are not part of an infrastructure to support someone elses talents.
+2
Well, im just saying. At Real madrid, its Ronaldo show as well.
Legend has it, Higuain is still celebrating his goal. XD

Rather have Insigne instead.
Dammit SKool , that haunted haunted memories :'(
Hue hue hue, I am evil eh ? :P

Ooooo santi carzorla.
looking at displays from de gea and courtois just shows how important a goalie can be to the team. great tie between chelsea and pool. lots of small things that pulled it in chelsea's favour. over the 2 games courtois definitely contributed towards that. It's been a while since we had a top gk.
+3
9 years
+1
Both keepers work hard to get better even though they are already above average.

Meanwhile Tex is good and thinks he can just sit on the fact he's good. I hope Ospina puts in some great performances otherwise Tex will think he's untouchable, in turn making him more stagnant.
+4
Ospina have kept clean sheets, tex, I like the guy but he's really poor of making decisions. Ospina will become our starter.
no offense but he kind of comes off as smug. i think you guys are right, he has the talent but maybe not the mentality to be one of the best (at least not at the moment).
+2
SIF ur right, he's a cocky prick, that would be alright, if he was a WC keeper e.g Nueur, but he isn't, that's why I don't want him anywhere near the first team until he sorts his head out
I've started to lose faith in Tex this season, i've always liked the guy and think he's probably really good in the dressing room but not sure if he'll make it as a top keeper.

But then again De Gea has really improved in a 12-18month period so there's still hope for Tex.
Paulista is in Paris to speed up and receive his work permit faster

We did something similar with Sanchez. Formalities at this point
+2
The likes of Keane and Viera would decimate Costa, softies in the league so everyone acts hard these days.
+5
Waiting for someone to drop him.
Coquelin will destroy him given the chance.
+3
The problem starts with the Refs..if they had any balls they would let the game flow without all these little fouls. The English game isn't what it used to be
I wish vidic was still in the prem, that serbian would of dropped him within 5 mins of the game
+2
wasn't watching the game, what Costa did?
stamped players
forget vidic TV5 would have put him in a coffin.
The ref was flawless today tho. It was a good free flowing game even tho it was nil all for 90 mins and lots of strong tackles were made.

coquelin and k6 can keep costa quiet too
TV5 ?? If and only if TV5 can run at the pitch properly before talking about sending others off. I rather worried TV5 is off the field when others touched him.
+1
what a twat..
Well here's Paulista putting the twat in his place
