Ben Yedder signed for Sevilla for under 10M.

If Arsenal is going to spend big on someone like Lacazette or Mahrez, then why not go for a player like him.

Sevilla got quite a bargain
Had no idea Jamie Fox was an Arsenal fan
How could you not?! Dude's cool AF! lol :P
Okay Atleti just completed Gameiro transfer for €32M + €5M Variables , he should have been on wenger's radar . Some might argue that he just had one great season, but if not better he is on level with giroud , plus he have complete different profile to that of giroud , which would have made him very good option for Arsenal.

Also Yedder is joining sevilla
Wenger: "We nearly signed Gameiro, but it was too late" "We were also interested on Ben Yedder, but he was too expensive"

sigh :/
+2
he is 29. Not AW type, considering he is no where near Higuain standard if u want to compare why we are interested in Higuain. He is still good though
Most of you guys know that I've been pretty reasonable and as aware as I could of the financial situation of the club. I'm just not really understanding why this transfer window we're having it difficult. Surely with the money we didn't spend last season we can have some more buying power. Is it the 45M euros for Xhaka that weighed too much on our budget? There is still a whole month but I'm beginning to panic lol
+1
Skool you forgot:"spurs also stole our target janssen".
+1
lol peterzegooner. also to add on, we bid a pound more just to trigger the clause, but apparently, there was none.
The only difference i see from gameiro and giroud is that gameiro has the attacking awareness to beat the offside trap. He isn't very fast as it takes him long to get to full speed but he is a very clever player. Giroud is a better finisher on the day though
Gameiro hasn't got Girouds hold up play either, so for that price, I wouldn't want him
+1
Yup, I'd rather Ben Yedder than Gameiro but prolly focusing on acquiring Lacazette's services is better value... we'll all see later on regardless.
Damn whoever challenged me to provide facts of Koscielny getting bullied.

My research don't reflect well on the Boss!!

No matter what anybody says the guy has been bullied for a lot of our goals.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A21MZu0hDGg

..and there are more!!
Okay I tried to tell you this before: just browsing youtube is not research. Chargui has showed you before that he can just as easily pull up videos to counter your videos.

So couple of things:
-I watched all the clips and a lot of times you assign blame to koscielny when it was either fullback being out muscled or keeper making a mistake. Not saying this is always the case but the number of videos you posted so far can be reduced because of this.
-you posted a goal twice I guess to make your research seem more fruitful
-statistics prove more than just isolated videos of cases spanning 5 (!) years he has been with us.
-all defenders make mistakes so we can sit here all day long posting yt videos to each other... Which is why I said previously: statistics > youtube

Comparative statistics are easy to do and we have free databases online to make such analyses accessible.

Disclaimer: I want us to get a defender this xfer window. I merely disagree with the notion that koscielny is our main issue in defence.

Edit: ofc you can change my mind about koscielny but it won't be based on proof solely off yt. Sure videos can be used but IMHO not as a sole basis of an argument because then we will end up just posting yt links to each other and getting nowhere. Statistics in this regard are clean and much harder to counter. Anyways just my opinion.

You should get on mertesackers case not koscielny. Every great defender gets bullied or dominated at some point. But koscielny is not our weakness in defense
I vividly remember a certain big muscular athletic defender infamously got totally owned by messi in the semis of a CL match! Messi could never come close to doing that against Kos the boss
Threkstari - so what videos has Chargui produced to counter my videos?

I mentioned that Kos gets bullied and Chargui disagreed - in his view Kos never gets bullied - and he challenged me challenged me to speak on facts. So I produced the videos which provides facts that he does get bullied!!

I just feel that our defensive personnel nor Arsene Wenger's defensive tactics is title winning material. I can pull out so many comical goals that we concede that even a league 2 team would rarely concede.

We need different defensive personnel..people talk about Kos..Lol my beef is not with Kos, personally, I think he is okay, I watch the guy weakly..other than getting bullied he is good in flashes he is prone to some lapses of concentration and sometimes his defensive awareness is questionable. But he is the epitomy of why we fall short year after year, in the sense, that he is the best defender and he makes mistakes but we still praise him for it. Scrutiny makes people improve..to some Kos the boss never does wrong. What kind of message does that send to the youngsters?

If I was a defender I would hate to lose a duel, our defenders lose duels and just gets on with it..nobody says anything..lol where is the passion there.

With defensive tactics, I blame Wenger for that, our players always seems to mark the space rather than go man for man. Something which is crazy considering that players score goals and not space. Plus that kind of defensive tactic require dominant defenders something which we just do not have in our squad.

Filsuf brings up the one off perfomance he had against messi..that he making a career out off..dare I remind you of Messi show in the second leg?
+1
I really dont understand your problem with kos,timid.
Koscielny is one if the top defenders in the premier league and was one of frances best players at the euros.he's a top class player and i think arsenal has got other problems to adress than koscielny
+5
This was the video TimiGun
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYgIrruOw2o

I love the title of it as well haha

Anyway, the problem with facts and videos is that the videos show isolated facts. It's the same for the vid I am posting now, you'll see about a dozen of tackles and challenges but it won't tell the true story, because it shows too few events.

As Threk says, if you to say he gets constantly bullied, you'll have to go for stats to back it up.

You can also put it like this: according to youtube videos, players like Ben Arfa or Quaresma are probably the best players in the world since Maradona, because you'll see videos of them doing insane things and scoring outrageous goals. It's obviously a fact that they actually scored those goals and done those tricks, but it doesn't tell the whole story.

And I never meant that Kos NEVER gets bullied off the ball, for christ's sake, it literally just happened in the Euro final vs Portugal. But you're not talking about a lone mistake, you're saying that he very consistently gets bullied. By stating something like this, you have to step away from punctual events and go for long-term reality. For that you need stats.
+1
I must admit it does have a sweet title!! hehe.

These are not just mere isolated factual videos..they show goals- goals are the stats that matter- goals which have cost us cup finals, league points or champions league progress. Due to those goals we lost games..so they do tell the whole story!!
The videos -if you look carefully - are spread across seasons, that is consistency for you, thus, meaning that year in year out he left wanting.

*I still have visions of Danny f*ing Welbeck towering over him and some other defender to score the first goal of that 8 -2 defeat*

*Visions of Negredo brushing him aside to score in that 6-3 defeat*

*Visions of Skertle brushing him aside to score the 2-0 in that 5-1* I was embarrassed that our CB was brushed of so easily by the opposing CB.

The comparison with Ben Harfa or Quaresma is maybe not the most ideal. Those are attacking players who requires alot of skills to beat fullbacks.If say for example Ben Harfa is not fast or skillful to beat defenders to create a goal then you rightly highlight his flaws as being not fast enough or skillful enough. So in this case people would say, you know what, if we want to win the league then we can't have Ben harfa in our team cos he is not championship winning material.

Back to reality tho..Ben Harfa is a skillful player - tho his attitude sucks - so of course he will do skills that attract attention. But only those skills which leads to goals will really matter, cos goals affect results and it is the result that really matters. He will be judged on goals and assists, as Koscielny will be judged on goals conceded especially those that were his fault.

loving the new kits OMG!!!!
+1
yea, looks stunning. puma nailed it this time :)

ps: hope they dont tear like the swiss kits at the euros lol
Ronaldo would disagree with skool on that one
They're visually awesome! I just wonder if the hard nipples are included?
What happened to Loic Remy, I always thought he'd be suited to Arsenal's style. He'd be a cheap option too.

Ozil's thru balls + his pace & clean ball hitting prowess = lots of goals!
he's unmotivated with football, only worries about his pay cheque.
Great option two years ago. Unfortunately mourinho saw it and made sure the deal would never go through. Destroyed his motivation and ambition at the same time so that even after he left chelsea, he wouldn't be of any use if he went to us
Timid, that's exactly what we thought about Theo being fielded with ozil.
reminds me of ben arfa, great beginnings, then a rough period, but in the end he's finally found his foot now, and should have gone to the euros.

remy is just bench warming at chelsea, maybe conte has plans for him. dunno.
Between Costa (if he stays), Traore, and their new striker I don't see Remy being handed much playing time...Knowing Chelsea if they sold him they'd rake in about 50mil
That rob holding was looking sharp tho
+2
Ye he did, I hope he will keep it up
yeah he was really imppressive
Please don't get caught up with Mahrez rumors, it is bullshit.

Mustafi & Lacazatte are two targets that seems to be real and in progress. No fees or personals are agreed just yet.
+2
Can just hear Ranieri saying to his players, "everyone wants what Leicester had last season. Why leave what everyone desires to have?" I'd stay at least for 1 season to see if there's any signs of sustaining top level aspirations with them.
Well they already lost Kante and its a massive loss for them. Prolly Mahrez saw Kante leave and started to think to leave as well, understandably. What Leicester achieved last year was amazing and extremely unexpected, this year will be different, team will be taking game against Leicester differently and i don't think they will have the same bite as they did last year. It is much different when you start having some expectations.
+2
lol its ok guys, we can get makrez next year for cheaper price :P he's still 25yrs old

this article makes me sad.

I'm pretty sure every club would have same starting 11, since great players are always under everyone''s radar and every big clubs are usually fighting for the players' signings.

Media just likes to depict Arsenal and everyone falls for it. SMH.....
+5
Rather not have them, then have them and then sell them to our rivals...

Especially if those guys were in the 06-13 period where we had to sell them off to pay off our debt
+1
They wouldn't have a winners mentality and would lack certain competitiveness had they been under Wenger though so who knows if they would have turned into the stars they are now in that case.
+2
@filsuf, why would you say that?? Might I ask??
it's nonsense, every club has probably had interest and considered going for one of these players at some point. they are all top players, and you'd have to question your scouting department if you were not aware of their potential and had some interest somewhere in their early career. the only reason you know about it is because wenger opened his mouth to talk about it. most current managers probably were not coaching 10 years ago with the chance to sign these players. i bet fergie would have similar stories, in fact i know he does.

i had to laugh at ibra's part, his arrogance is just too funny. i would say outrageous. part of it is an act, but i dont think he's acting here.

also why is joe hart on that list? i think wenger dodged a bullet there. i question joe's concentration and mentality.
+1
shame on sky sports, shame on journalism these days. so as of now, only bbc stands well and sensible.
@mertesacker: Thanks for all the get well soon messages. Doc said he built in a 20 goals guarantee. No striker rumours anymore :) https://t.co/yC1tdDCI6h

Lacazette?
Or it's Mertesacker coming back from injury and scoring 20 goals. lmao
