ROSICKY yessss

So happy he's staying!!!!

f**k I wrote a really long tribute to Mikel Arteta and I deleted by mistake :(

Simplified version

Mikel Arteta is an example of what young players should strive to become. He is a captain, role model, leader, father, husband and above all a wonderful human being!

Thank you Mikel Arteta for your service to Arsenal.
Which arsenal player would you swap for cech?
Diaby

SANOGO
Walcott
Cech+cash for flamin.

I had a laugh and thought I'd share: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_hzxhLYJq8
All this talk of Vidal and Pogba. why do people think Juventus- Serie A champions and CL finalists - are going to sell their best players next season.
I think Pogba will want a lot more money than they will be able to give him.
+1
Maybe, but Juventus is not a small club. I am sure they have financial muscle. Its great to see them back. And especially good for european competition.
I agree with Sjsung. Arsenal needs CF who is tall and powerful.My first choice is C.Benteke.The team needs to improve on other weak spots. Personally, i am not comfortable with the position of merts, and i will be happy if there is an addition of CDM [ in the mold of Coq. but tall, fast and physically very strong].In different to many people, i am more than happy by the performance of D.Ospina.
We have a CF who is tall and powerful.
+1
His name is Sanogo

Sorry I had to lol
Whats all this talk about Vidal? I mean he's an amazing player but isn't he too similar to Ramsey?
sorry man, vidal is ahead of ramsey, but due to age factor, i will still pick ramsey
+1
I don't watch Vidal play often but I'm sure he probably does have the edge on Ramsey, I just meant they're very similar styles of playing

edit: I'm sure Ramsey has a higher ceiling though, I mean he's still only 24!
We need ST.
+1
Don't think we "need" a striker, I think Gnabry is who Wenger will invest in when it comes to strikers but I wouldn't mind Vidal being brought in at all. Ramsey is more versatile so I doubt there would be any style clash either.
+1
No we seriously need a ST. Not other department, maybe a cdm to backup coq. But right now only giroud is suitable to play CF/ST. Welbeck ? nah, no time to experiment him to be good, plus he keep injured since joining us. Walcott, alexis, ox, gnabry all at wings, mate.
+1
^Walcott, Alexis and Gnabry are not just wingers to Wenger. Maybe to others yes, but at the end of the day I think Wenger only wants Welbeck and OG as the CFs in the current squad and also for next season while the other 3 i just mentioned would be back ups. Another CF would mean either Welbeck, Walcott or OG leaving and doubt that will happen this summer... Ox is a winger however, & he'll also be playing in CM from time to time. Out of all our depts. I think le prof will leave the strikers untouched imo.
Vidal is a destroyer in Midfield who can score goals, defend like no tomorrow and has good passing abilities.

Imagine Mascherano on steroids with better technical and goal scoring ability. He's perfect in a 2 man MF.
They are not suit to play as ST, of course they can play there but they are better at the wings. Welbeck is ineffective at times, and AW tends to play him at the wings too. Which means we left only giroud at that position effectively. I know many gonna say welbeck need time at ST position, but u need to know the reason why he is left cold at Utd bench, or never get that chance to play ST. Besides work rate, he offers nothing many times when we play him as ST.

I genuinely think we NEED a new ST, and of course some other signing at other department too, else we just register the 4th place next season again.
+1
We don't need a world class striker. IMO we need a tall, physical target man who can offer us something different when Giroud is injured and in games where speedier Welbeck/Sanchez/Walcott would not be effective as a striker.

IDK if Sanogo is ready to be that backup or we need to find someone else.

To use an analogy, in basketball, you can play with a forward in the Center position and go "small" when your primary big man Center is injured, but you should still have a secondary big man Center (who's not a starter but is very good at the few things a big man should do and can be relied upon) because the opposition may make a "small" lineup ineffective.
Vidal is much better than any of your current midfielders in all honesty, maybe not by much but certainly a proven player already.

If Pedro was to leave Barca, I hope that he picks Arsenal. Him and Sanchez would win the league for you guys.
^ i agree with that Sjsung but with certain criteria's..... i believe we need someone who is more agile, better finisher and someone who can create his own goals, run behind the defense on his own.....i dare say that typically these type of strikers are usually smaller built like suarez, di natale or aguero...although i would take benteke in a heart beat.....
+1
Isn't khedira out of contract this summer? I bet Wenger is eyeing that deal to provide competition at CDM for Coq.
Besides that Cech should come in and Wojciech will leave (think he's done)
besides that - a ST, I dont know whose available. Benteke/cavani - but then i dont think wenger will bench giroud after the year he has had.
Khedira isn't really a cdm I see him more as a replacement for arteta than competition for coquelin. A Ramsey-khedira pivot might be pretty sweet though
@RUSS exactly, Wenger prefers to use OG as his main striker and Welbeck as his back up. Sanogo might or might not be OG's main competition in a couple seasons but right now Welbeck is the one that Wenger wants to give that responsibility. Benteke is a better striker than OG and Welbeck for me but that's what Sanchez and Gnabry brings in attack where our current CFs are lacking right now (and of course, we shouldn't forget that many EPL teams don't have players like Sanchez, Theo or Gnabry... not even Chelsea who only have Hazard that scores frequently from the wings).

I even think Gnabry can be a more dangerous player than Walcott was at his age but with a lot less time time to develop into that killer striker we need... I certainly wouldn't mind if he evolves into an aguero-esque type of player either. I don't really see any other young player we have like him, the only other youngsters in the EPL like him that are doing well are Berahino and Ings.
Vidal is awesome. Put him next to Le Coq in front of the defense and we are an impenetrable wall!! This guy works his butt off fighting for possession.
Dude if we get Vidal I will run through London wearing nothing but a large Arsenal flag!
I know I shouldn't say it, but the new Spurs shirt looks pretty good.

Damn, I like it too. Seems very fitting.
its very cool, only the Pampers that sounds like a kid wear. otherwise i dont see any kit beating this.
^thats the point. Pampers is a brand of nappy (diaper) for babies, hence the soiling of front and back :P
I can't believe that Real Madrid and Spurs would have the same sponsors :D
Wow, a match made in Heaven...given that Spurs are "leaky" at the back just like pampers!!!
Pampers does not ensure a "clean sheet"

TRANSFER NEWS!

Arsenal have tabled a €10million (£7.1m) bid for Espanyol defender Hector Moreno, say reports.

The 27-year-old centre-half has been the subject of growing interest from the Premier League having turned in some impressive performances for the La Liga outfit since recovering from the broken leg suffered at the World Cup last year.

Both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are said to be keen on the Mexico international, but it is the Gunners who have stolen a march on their bitter rivals, according to reports in Moreno’s homeland.

Despite adding another South American, Brazilian Gabriel Paulista, to his ranks back in January, boss Arsene Wenger is still a little lightweight when it comes to central defenders, with only three recognised players to call upon in that particular position. And the club would have little trouble in securing a work permit for Moreno, as he has 58 caps for La Verde.

This only makes sense to me if we're lining up a loan move for Chambers, who I see as the long term successor to Mertesacker.

Otherwise, we already have 4 natural centre backs (plus 2 makeshifts who can cover short term) for 2 spots so adding a 5th ahead of other areas, that need urgent re-enforcement, seems like a pointless move.
