If we are now going after jean seri..we should get them to throw in Plea as well
Looks like a good player. Dunno where he would fit in our 3-4-3 though.
How could we let Szczęsny go for 10mil and we won't accept 10mil for Gibbs? Does Arsenal value Szczęsny as 10mil???
After cigarette in the shower we stopped rating him
Dani on a few posts below you said we don't know what's happening in the dressing room now you have just made a similar assumption. Wenger himself used to be a smoker, i highly doubt he would hold a grudge on tex for something he did on one of his worst days. Better to simply assume it's cause Ospina is better and there aren't too many interested teams. Plus that Martinez kid looks good as well
When should we expect Lemar? Few days? Next week?
it took us 3 years to get lacazette...

more like 5 yrs

As per Xgooner it was by end of July...we are waiting :)
He switched to "we have the entire transfer period" ;D
http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11816/10962720/monaco-confirm-plans-for-kylian-mbappe-extension-and-thomas-lemar-stay

If anyone has suggestons for Xgooner's DP, please post on my wall for consideration.
Deffy i like the one with Ali ;D
better of just getting mahrez, we move like snails. If its not done in the next few days I really dont understand what there is to talk about
Charlie I think the whole point of Lemar is not to play him on the wings, but more of a Santi's role
We are told talks between Monaco and Arsenal are continuing over the transfer of Thomas Lemar. Discussions centre on the size of the fee and the structure of the payments.

Skysports


these lot are peasents, hes an arsenal player already, my ketchup sauces are always correct


Vardy doesnt count, hes also a peasent
"Sun" reported the same today. Fingers crossed.
Believe Mahrez is under radar as well, just waiting when L'ster are ready to a lower than 50mio price tag.
Why not trying Barkley? The lad got pace, strength and proven in EPL.
Mahrez is worth it but Lemar has talent and more potential to grow. I hope we get him!
Why not get both? Sanchez is likely going to be off and without him our wingers are:

Walcott, Ox, Iwobi.

That is hardly the calibre needed to win the title. Get Mahrez and Lemar and ship Walcott out.
think its to do with the academy products. idk just with how Monaco have been developing players in recent years, the club may do the same with Nelson, and possibly Sancho if he comes
ASM says not for sale... looks like your DP will get DP'd ;) (sorry kids)
Dragging out the whole transfer window for 2 signings. We are just useless at making deals
Gotta admit puma started making damn nice kits!! These new Arsenal kits look awesome!!!
the third kit especially. damnnnnnnnnnn when ozil signs, ima get it with #10 cos no relevant player has it, so it should be his number
is Sanchez going to PSG?
I think whatever sanchez wants will have to wait til next year. I can see Wenger blocking any move away this summer. I'm right there with him if that's truly what's happening.
Wow, Man City to make a $160 million bid for Mbappe.

I know there's all that moral crap about spending money, and how its frowned upon people. Well not anyone in England anymore

But at the end of the day

Id f*****g love it if we spent money like the Manchester clubs do 😂😂😂 and I mean like near £200mill or over every year
+2
I'm glad someone is admitting it. We City fans give no f**ks, I for one stopped given a f*** and will continue to give no f*** from now on. Why reject gifts that keep on coming. If Arsenal was in this position of spending, would any of you guys be complaining?
+2
Some guy on this forum did say it's the reason he supports Arsenal though. I definitely don't care ...its board's decision on how much to spend so why would I lose sleep over it? Not unless those who are interested in just mocking rivals
+3
I'm 100% for it if it's ManU case, they make that money themselves. ManC/Chelsea scenario is boring and plastic, I would have a hard time supporting club like that.
+1
@Leefo, i dont think them buying world class players on a yearly basis and winning titles is boring lol :D


and yeah there are arsenal fans who do like the way the club is run atm, same can be said with tottenham fans. but at the end of the day, one of them hasn't won the PL in 13 years, and the other club has no fans that have ever since them lift a league title
+3
I might have been that guy Gapha. I do like clubs who invest in formation and in player's development. It's much more valuable imo to build a team with players who grew from within (Ramsey, Gibbs, ...) or developped themselves to become the players they are today (Koscielny, Giroud, ...).

This policy is clearly one of the things that makes this club popular. Arsenal need to invest more right now because they havent been able to for a decade, but they need to keep up with that player's development policy as well.

I am pretty sure that just buying everyone on the market will bring new fans, part of them gloryhunters, but only if trophies follow immediately. On the other hand, that will also make more conservative fans complain right away, and even if we end up winning trophies from it. I know for a fact that a good proportion of the fans dont care about trophies as much as the spirit of the club and the values it follows.

I know a lot of people on this forum cant believe it but that explains why the WengerOut people in North London and at the Emirates are in fact a minority.
+2
yeah it is, if I would choose my team back in 2006 based on your preferences, then I'm fan of Chelsea or Real Madrid.

Like it or not, Wenger stands for something and that something is what makes Arsenal Arsenal. I'm kinda afraid that we will lose the identity when he leaves, like ManU lost theirs. But that's the difference, when Fergie left, he left so much behind that ManU are okay for X years to find themselves again, same will be with Arsenal ... Roman knows this, that's why he's starting to build something lasting with Chelsea. ManC on the other side are still just a f*****g boy toy of some rich ass oil guy from Middle East.

And really, people nowadays are so f*****g boring with being obsessed with numbers. He scored X goals and won Y titles, booooring, grow up people. It's sport. It's easy to compare sportsman by titles won and goals scored, but it's bullshit really.
+1
ah finally someone who isn't looking at football like a 15 yo :)
I'm pretty sure every club stands for something. There is a reason why each club was founded--mainly for the community and people around it.

Now who are we to say reason/Morals A is right and B is wrong? To each his own and let's be honest Arsenal and Liverpool have spent big money as well.

In terms of youth, I could make an argument for Man city -- they recently invested close to 300mm on their training facility and youth development. They may not have youth coming through but Im sure their investments will help the kids in the community develop and move on to other places.

Chelsea for example probably has the best youth system right now. Its graduates almost always get a place somewhere but Chelsea's first team. So you see, no one method is right and no one method is boring or wrong when you look deeper. clubs just go about things differently as all.

I started supporting Chelsea because everyone in my house was a Chelsea fan and my dad lived in west london. I love that the club has an owner who loves success and is not afraid to invest in the club although our policy has since changed.

so to each his own

+2
Gapha
You and me and anybody else have the right to say that A is better than B in their eyes. It's exactly what we're doing right now. "To each his own" is a given, it's obvious, what's interesting is to have a discussion about it :)

Unlike what you say, I think it is obvious that Arsenal and Wenger count much more on unproven players than other big clubs. Let me get it straight: that doesnt mean that other clubs dont have a good youth system, but AFC counts on unproven players to go in the first team and make it happen. You dont see that as much in other big teams. And it's not only about youth football.

I get your point and I agree. Other big clubs form a lot of young players, etc. Real Madrid is one of the most important formation structure in Spanish football for example, they just dont really use the players they develop into the first team.

I really love the fact that Arsenal go to the French 2nd division, see a guy who is already 25 years old with low experience, buy him and make him one of the best defenders in the PL (Koscielny). It has a financial reason to it as well obviously, but it's also a certain way of managing the club. It's not just about youth development, it's about the way you manage the first team as well.
Chelsea are not the moneybag team from 2004, they are making a lot of good transfer deals these days

The only reason man Utd can spend is because of SAF. He turned the club into one of the biggest in the sport and woody is doing a good job of keeping the club there despite few poor seasons

City are just embarrassment to the sport.
If they had given Pellegrini half the budget that they have given Pep he would have won everything there is to win. Even Mancini would have won a lot if they didn't fire him
The Mancini's city team was pretty tough to hate even as a man Utd fan, that side was well drilled with a classy manager
Unlike now
+3
@Vazz, you only say that because you dislike Pep. He clearly is getting more money to replace the ageing stars, Mancini got the same spending power and brought in, Silva Yaya and Aguero. Nothing new.

@ Leefo, City is not boring, stop lying to yourself. As for being plastic, i say its more like getting lucky. The club has been around for a long time had some success in the 60-70s and afterwards where getting relegated and going back up over and over again. They had a tough period but god forbid a rich man took interest and wanted to buy the club to turn it to a footballing power house but I guess that's wrong. City bring loads of entertainment to the league and actually make it very fun to watch. I mean who wants to watch Cheslea and Utd continue to trade the titles between them while Arsenal continue to struggle. Now that is boring.

Chargui - "t's much more valuable imo to build a team with players who grew from within (Ramsey, Gibbs, ...) or developped themselves to become the players they are today (Koscielny, Giroud, ...)"

This happens at every club man...young players develop at every top club and average players develop to become like Kos or Giroud. It has nothing to do with spending unless you do what city are doing under Pep. Almost every player in the starting XI would cost more than 30m. But this is an exception case happening under Pep who needs best player in every position to get best out of the team.

Moe66 - That is the difference. Mancini bought 3/4 big players during his time. Pep wants almost entire starting XI because he wants to deliver trophy playing his style of football.

every major team has been replacing aging stars over last 5 years. Chelsea , Arsenal , Liverpool and to some extend United have replaced aging stars over last 4-5 seasons and sold player to generate funds and sign 1-2 good player season. We literally replaced entire spine of the team Drogba , Terry , Lampard , Cole, Essien ,Mata , Cech & Ivan etc over 5 seasons.

IMO Pep decided to join city over united for this very reason. He was promised something which no other club would deliver to him in just 2 seasons.

Infact Real Madrid have not had a two back to 200m+(no yet done) window followed by 170m transfer window season before taking overall spending since last 5 years to 650m.(This is NET spending after sales).

As a Chelsea fan i wont complain about spending. My point is Pep is not that special manager Barca team made him look. His demands are too high to deliver trophy and literally needs perfect environment to succeed.
I hate teams that redo half their roster every year and just throw money at their problems
I can't help but look at where that money is coming from. The oil clubs City and Chelsea have blood on thier hands imo.

Abromovich is park of a tiny cabal of russian oligarchs who used positions in the milirary, intelligence or Soviet state, to get control of state assets in the mass privitisations and the end of the soviet union. They got control of them for a song, and retain control by propping up an oppressive government. Thats gross.

City's prince comes from a country where only 20 off percent of the population are citizens, the rest are virtually indentured labour with repressive and abusive methods of control regularly practiced. By being part of the royal family that also forms the government he has access to wealth and the governming regime functions as a business whose goal is to increase the wealth of the family rather than produce a decent life for anyone in the countries borders (which isn't to say people can't or don't have decent lives there, but there is no govermental legitimacy in my view). That's gross too.

That isn't even to mention that oil is the largest cause of global warming, literally cooking the whole f*****g world to enrich themselves.

If you're happy with your club being the plaything of the mega wealthy, who use your teams as a way into the european financial class to cement thier power and bring about global catastrophe, well.... at least you get to watch some good players I guess?
http://www.givemesport.com/1107941-lucas-perez-reveals-details-of-awful-treatment-by-arsenal

I feel for him he did well almost everytime he got a chance
It is hard for him. I still don't understand why welbeck is prefer more than him, the same as Walcott
rumours that he was shiity in the dressing room.. who knows who knows
That's rumor, but what we can see in front is the lack of respect towards player. Ozil won't get the number 10 because of wilshere, although he was loaned. But Perez was not even ask though he was with the club. He asked to leave to China with more playing time, but aw refused, yet aw dont play him. Sometimes AW do have favorite players, even if they are not good enough compared to others, they still given tons of chances
Diontan you dont know whats happening in the dressing room, neither do I.. I dont think its just black and white, may be there is something more to it, that me and you dont know.. or may be we did treat him like shiit, we just dont know
