2014 Summer Transfer window, a success?

Yay or Nay?
You're joking right?
+1
Just saying Man United web page/twitter hasn't announced the Falcao deal yet, however has reported all their other deadline day deals, there is no definitive answer that the deal has gone through yet.
Falcao update

Posted at 00:16

"There were some last-minute rumours that Radamel Falcao had failed his medical at Manchester United. But we are assured that Falcao has passed his medical. We're just awaiting official confirmation."

David Ornstein

BBC Sport
I think Wenger needs to have a medical, could be brain dead.
His activity in the market this window was quite simply dreadful.
+4
I think that has proved foooooooooor maybe more then you're alive that his brain is not dead, the opposite is much more alive than you think. There is a reason they call him Le proffesour. Now, in a sence I agree with the forum on the cb part, but at the same time, Chambers, Debuchy, Sanchez, Ospina, Campbell( still a new player to the club), and Welbeck, that's fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuking amazing stuff. Especially considering how, bad our last few years on transers have been.

So you know what. Screw it.

I trust in him, and I trust he is the man wholl take us to glory again.

+1
What are you talking about? we've brought in ALEXIS!!! chambers, debuchy. Same team as last year only 7 points off. Ok Giroud is injured, so hopefully welbeck comes in!(henry Mold) Plus walcott back, and Campbell! If we had signed Campbell from another team after the world cup he had we would be all going ape s**t. So relax with all the Wenger hate. yikes. #COYG

^^what he said opps^^
+1
Guys no need to right of Welbeck straight away, (chill with the negativity) the guy hasn't even touched a ball and we are writing him off. Yes he didn't have the best of time at United you can never know. The guy is 23 and is 6 ft 1 and a hell lot more skill than Sanogo. You know Welbeck has potential, Arsenal might be the place where he realises it. Look at all the strengths SoccerisFootbal just stated below Welbeck has.

As for a central defender what Wenger's thinking is that he using going to use Chambers as that third option.

Yes its underwhelming that United have Falcao, but probably just didn't want to choose us.... Whatever just think we could of ended up quite likely signing no one on dead line day.
+1
I like Welbeck, he's a great option to have, very hard working.
+1
We have a team filled with cm and wingers CB is a massive worry and im worried about the number of goals we will score
+2
I said this b4. Welbeck is a direct replacement for Giroud but quicker. I like this too. I'm just a bit annoyed we haven't strengthened defensively whether DM or CB. Massive risk in such times where all our rivals improved on strengths.

This means Campbell/Wilshere will probably be used as an Arteta type for now [along with Flamini].
Goals are the problem. Welbeck does nothing to solve that
+1
He wasn't at his best for us because we've relied more on crosses the last few years and that's simply not his strong suit.

As far as I know that won't be the problem at Arsenal. You guys like passing the ball into the box and then he's great. He can pull off some fantastic flick-ons and put upcoming midfielders or wingers beyond the opponents defense. I even dare say in the last 2 years we haven't really played a fluid passing game but when we did lots of times it was Welbeck who was at the heart of it. + his mentality and work-rate are second to none.

That being said he has his obvious flaws but for me there's no doubt in Arsenals style of play his strenghts will be much better used than for us.

I'm calling it now that we'll regret this move and our management will look like fools once Wenger worked his magic with him, maybe not this year yet but definitely in the years after that.
i feel like the only thing that gooners can slight Arsene for is having too much confidence in the players we have. options at DM - Arteta and Flamini, Chambers
options at ST - Walcott, Giroud, Sanchez, Podolski, Campbell, Sanogo, and most likely Welbeck
options at CB - Merts, Kos, Chambers (apparently Monreal) which was the same position we were in last season, 3, except Chambers has started brilliantly, where as Verm was edged out. Our midfielders and wingers are more than fine. It just seems like until January, Arsene thinks this is enough, and that they are good enough.
Exactly, you have to look at your options, i would rather have Welbeck leading the line than Sanogo (still to raw). Just give it time. It always seems that we never go for the big fishes just what is left over, but we did sign Sanchez this window as well. Plus our team has always been about everyone in the team providing the goal tally not just the striker, even through the RVP era.
+1
Id have done a better job than Wenger in transfer windows, how we have not signed a cb is unbelievable, i honestly dont know what goes through Wengers mind.

Obviosly im happy we got Welbeck but a cb was equally as important, i cant even begin to think the dilema we will have when kos, mert or chambers gets injured.

So much hope shattered just like that.
Zilch we cant afford to play chanbers a cdm he is cover for our 2 cb's
Hope your right, we desperately need a cb.
Charliehenry: not if the last deal goes through.
Dont worry. Walcott will make everything better and Im not being sarcastic
All i gotta say is loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool.
Were trying to push through 1 more deal mate and if it happens it'll be great. Honestly I think Wenger just has definite targets rather than settling for a player for the sake of making a transfer. Welbeck is pretty good and so us the other player we're trying for. I think Wenger's set on using Chambers as CDM cover, CB is what's needed. Don't lose hope yet, the window isn't really closed for the managers.
Completely agreed and I'm sure Wenger realises that too. But I'd rather he gets the player he wants than get another Squillaci...
@Zilch i hope whoever it is goes through
I dont know where to put my expectations. I dont feel Arsenal have done enough to challenge in BPL or CL but we should land top 4 and FA Cup.
+1
Probably top 4 and hopefully a trophy, we have done nowhere enough to challenge for the major trophies.
Top 4 and Carling Cup or FA Cup at most.

Top 4 at least.
very unlikely to land the FA cup again..maybe carling cup and top 4 if lucky..we have not looked good in one game yet this season..i worry for top four this season because a lot of teams have strengthened
+1
Wouldn't be too worried just yet.
+1
Utd still have a long way to go imo, I expect chelsea, city, liverpool and Arsenal will remain the top 4
toby alderweireld gone to soton on loan :( we could use him :(
No defensive cover. Suicide
+3
I dont even have words for this situation.
+3
Yea what is Wenger thinking seriously. Forget injuries, our defenders are not even in form
+1
He was thinking about his guest appearearance at his celebrity he is currently appearing at.
lol join the club #nodefenders
although the window closes but is there any chances that we sign more than just welbeck ?
I used to complain about having only three fit center back...
+1
maybe we will get one in december
