Talksport has revealed that Arsenal still has a chance to sign Carvalho. False reports claimed a deal was set in stone when Chelsea initially made a bid of 35m just to blow us out of the water. This then triggered Arsene to pull out and move on just to prove Arsenal isn't someone to play with when it comes to transfers. The philosophy is either you deal or no deal and no playing around.

Talksport then made further inquiries in the story and confirmed Chelsea did not make a bid as initially stated. They went directly to Sporting and the club has now confirmed no bids were actually made.

OK, my head hurts.
So I haven't comment on this forum for a while (been on vacation in Canada) but I've been trying to keep up with recent match and transfer updates. One thing I'd like to state is; don't allow your hopes of this season to dwindle after two games. We're missing our world class no.10 (Ozil) and our marshal and leader in defence (Merts), and so far we've won our first league match and we have a great chance at securing our spot in the group stage after a difficult draw against a very determined besiktas side. We've managed to do all this while performing below par, so have hope!

Furtermore, some of the players who are regularly under the firing line are clearly out of form (santi, Giroud etc.), so therefore they need more games to get back into their stride.

A long season awaits us, and just because Chelsea managed to beat Burnely fc, doesn't mean they're suddenly going to win the title (even if they are favourites). Two games in, I've seen more positive signs than negative. We're now able to win matches ugly or pull of a result even when we're playing at an average level, this wasn't the case a few seasons ago. Have faith, Have hope. COYG!!!

P.s- the transfer window ain't over so we could still get the players we want and need i.e Carvalho .
+4
Would love Carvalho. There are confusing reports out there on if we have made a bid, did make a bid and Lisbon's own evaluation of the player.
Many reports suggesting that sporting turned us down...i think someone is bound to make a better offer than us...my guess based on rumors.Sporting is holding out cause if Juve sell Vidal they will be able to outbid us for him
Add Chelsea to that. They've also sent their scouts to watch the game over the weekend where he got featured.

Chelsea really don't need him but they'll do everything in their power to stop is from getting such a talent even if they end up having to bench 20 Messi's.
Wow sad to see how everybody is hating on Giroud. He is a target man..his job is to bring other players into the game. But I can understand the criticism..He's not holding the ball efficiently and he is not putting the chances that he should be putting away. I say stick with him..but play him with a clinical striker (Podolski or Walcott) who will finish off his knock downs.
+2
LOL
+1
Sometimes I was critical of Giroud, especially at the end of the season.Maybe because he was the only option we had and Podolski wasn't at his best after the injury he sustained at the start of the season. But we bought Sanchez, Theo is coming back, Sanogo can replace him every now and then.Campbell is also here.So we definitely have got more attacking options now.I am sure that Giroud will play his part in this season's trophies chase.
Lol
Admit it everyone: if you look deep into your hearts... you hate on Giroud because you are jealous of his Calvin Klein model looks!!!
Meatball. I'm actually beginning to think that is the case.

#youjelly?
Giroud and Cazorla got left behind so many times in the first half that Sanchez had to slow down in the second half and wait for them.

Counter attacks came to a grinding halt. That's not going to help us in high tempo games.
on his transfer plans...
Not at the moment, no. I have nothing special to add on that at the moment. Honestly, we are not close to signing anybody. -Wenger


Come on dad...stop fooling around with us lol
Dad?
haha if this is true we are f'cked...in the middle the middle of the field because Teta's out for a while.
Wenger is a dad to all Arsenal fans.

@GSS lol right...maybe he's just pulling the same old tricks.
Mann I know we don't need Reus atm but hope we can sign a pre contract agreement or something, I really don't want United to get him. We should have the upper hand with 3 Germans already on board.
Ano right, imagine Sanchez, Walcott, Ozil and Reus coming at you, Daaaaaaaamn. I'd say I'm not feeling so well before the match just to avoid the humiliation of getting whipped.
If he even remotely shows interest in us, we should jump on it. we will be lethal on counter attack on par with Real madrid :)

keep it up ox...more of this and someone's spot will really be in danger
i always rate him as 2nd option on the right just after theo and then gnabry. seeing someone else in that position kinda makes me sad lol
theo>>ox>>gnabry>>anyone else. for rwf
left wing is quite s**t tbh lol
edited: should be under peter, this is annoying
Not only did that shot hit the post, but it just had to hit the keeper in the back. That ball was headed straight to Jack if it hadn't hit the keeper after it hit the post.
Why don't we play Ox on the left wing?? his left foot isn't that bad I reckon. Also he tracks back so he can support Gibbs/Monreal
+1
left wing isn't looking solid
+1
Ox made the defender go completely the wrong way, needed GPS to get back.
Or just play ox on the right and experiment with sanchez on the left...
both of them can play either wing imo.
things that we need to take note of the last night game against besiktas

1 our whole right side of our team is made of new players. chambers, debuchy and alexis. they were great last night but you can sense the lack of chemistry among them as the game goes by. our opponent players were able to intercept the ball far too easily.

2 it was a rough game. one hell of a game and the physicality was too much for us to handle. the ref being a total s**t didnt helped us either. you can sense that our players were under a huge pressure and even a good player like ramsey did silly mistakes especially in taking the bait from the opponents thus getting the second yellow. that was stupid.

3 besiktas did well in almost every department, they were compact in defending, quick on the counter and aggresive in the middle. props to them.

4 we didnt claimed that the germans were raiding london out of nothing during last season. they were the back bone of our team and of course the impact of not having them will be huge.

5 calm your tits down people
+1
I like number 5 the best
i would like to add on the #3;

they did superbly in fans' department. That intimidating atmosphere..why cant we get that in Emirates..sigh

If we have the same support, Emirates would be a fortress
the best our fans in emirates can do is rattle their jewelleries. rich bastards. lol
lol

btw I heard that stadium is not even their original home ground?
If we sign Reus... It would be complete madness.
we will wreck the living s**t out of footytube if it is true lol
+1
Impossible...we have to go for a defender for the sake of balancing the squad...but damn if that happens
Cant understand why the Manolas deal aint final yet?? He has had like 5 medicals already lol
+2
If you look at our formation you can tell that the right side of the pitch of debuchy,ramsey and sanchez look stronger than the left side of the pitch nacho, wishere and carzola. The right side has pace the left side does not, equals an imbalance team, it would have being better to started with nacho wish/carzola ox/rosi on the left, in that way we could stretch the defense on both flanks, making our attack more potent, so the fault lies with wenger not the players imo.
our lineup from few seasons back was stronger on the right side than on the left.

It has always been that way.
Pace on the left side requires Gibbs to get forward, hes the pacy wide option on that side

the traitor is a great player.
That he is
tbh he's got one of the best volley in the game.. I still rmb dat volley against everton.

The word traitor makes me sad :-\

so many ex-gunner in so many direct rival team.
there's a lot of ex gunner in pl we can even make a whole new team out of them and call it judas united fc
we trained him this hard and he left just like that. Great to see him rot now
