Posting top teams 25 man squad now that transfer window is almost done. Are you guys happy with the squad? Where do you guys need additions? I think you guys need a striker because of injury to wellbeck/ but then again wenger think sanchez/walcott can play st.

GK - Cech, Ospina, Martinez
CB - Koscielny, Mertesacker (C), Gabriel, Holding
RB - Bellerin, Chambers
LB - Monreal, Gibbs
CDM/CM - Coquelin, Elneny, Xhaka, Wilshere
CAM - Carzola, Ramsey, Ozil
Wingers - Sanchez, Ox, Walcott, Iwobi
ST - Giroud, Wellbeck, Sanogo
No, not happy
No, not happy
No, not happy
very unhappy
Let's sign joe Hart and convert him to a striker...surely he will know all about every GK weakness
+2
Sanogo should be replaced with either Akpom or Jenkinson in the best 25.

But since we have injuries anyway, until December our best 25 should take out Mertesacker and Welbeck, add Gnabry and Bielik
VladZZZ... You broke the trend. Your punishment for such an atrocity will be one week of solitary confinement and watching "Giroud misses sitters compilation" on loop.

Your suffering will be remembered.
IDK much of the details of JC's loan contract. But if we do have a recall player from loan option it might turn out to be 'smart' business. Wenger clearly prefers every other winger to him, but those other wingers are quite injury prone. This way JC doesn't just rot on the bench waiting for someone to get injured. He get's regular action and stay's sharp so that when people like Chamberlain and walcott get injured we can call him back like last time
The Ox I understand, his doing well thus far. Although I don't see how AW could pick Walcott over Campbell. In fact I'm more surprised someone of Campbell's talent is still around and willing to go on loan. If I was him, I'd hand in the transfer request and leave, he honestly deserves better. He will never be a starter for Arsenal until AW leaves.
Chatter that the deal may include Slimani going opposite direction. Winger for ST/center forward.
Dont believe anything anymore until I see it on AFC page (or BBC)
the only thing goood about the load deal is that JC is moving away from the hate that is wenger, im pretty sure the next manager will hold JC higher is the order on merit, like a team should be...
JC is our Victor Moses. Don't know why he's overlooked every year. As Peter mentioned, I never understood since finding out about the loan deal is why we haven't used him as part of a deal for bringing someone in. Most teams would be lucky to have the kid so why are we just passing him off for free? Clueless.
I wouldn't be surprised if we got some rather unknown players in still, based on what Ivan gazidas was saying about getting players from lower leagues, then u just look our resent activity Elneny and Holding who looks a bang for the buck, maybe they have more targets like these??
who knows, I just want to wake up when the transfer window is over (hopefully will be signings) if not at least everyone will be focused again on whats important, football games.
+1
wouldt be suprised, but it seems like theyre waiting and trying for "big" players, if they were after smaller players then we would have easily signed them by now.
With most of the big players already at different club all of the sudden these smaller players become our big players.
I'd like to hear your opinions on this...

In the future, if wages become even more ridiculous than they are now. Will we ever see players reach the heights of Messi/CR7 through their talent and immense hard work?

The reason why I'm saying this is because, if a young, very talented player is snapped up by a big club and is offered a bucket loads of money *cough Odegaard cough*, would they have the motivation to become a better footballer, when they are earning millions before reaching the age of 21...

This is more focused on EPL clubs with English talent as well. With all this money coming into the league, would English players be focused to become even better when they earn a lot. Of course it's a double edged sword and can work both ways, but it's gonna be really interesting what the future lies in with football.

Other questions are like who will be the first £200 mill player... Cos let's face it imo Barca/Man Utd/Real have smashed the £100mill mark with Neymar/Pogba/Bale, but they just kept all the add ons in secret lol
Works alright in Basketball

I think it will all depend on the players, if they don't want to become the best of the best they never will.. Give them or don't give them money they will never reach the heights of Messi CR7..
Although FA could introduce the rule of not paying youngster more than X amount. Just like in Basketball I believe, when they getting drafted they don't earn much, they get rewarded after they become free agents or about to become ones if you good..
Fair Play got absolutely dismantled, they could introduce some sort of salary cap that will help to balance the game a lot. Also all the teams will think twice if they want to pay so much for specific players in your case to pay youngster way too much. But that won't happen too many teams and to make it work all the teams in Europe should introduce that.

In the rate market being going 200 mil player won't be far
Salary caps don't make sense as there will always be someone that is much more talented at the top. It wouldn't be fair for that person to be making the same as other less talented athletes. Also, what motivation would there be for a talented player at the top of the food chain? Glory? After all, let's not forget something here, this is their job. They are not volunteers. They have roughly only 10 years in the spotlight to make as much bank as possible.

At the end of the day, you get paid what you are worth. If someone is willing to pay you X dollars per year, it is because you are worth that much to them. Salary caps sound good on paper, but are unrealistic/unfair in practice.
Whether salary caps are fair depends on your definition of fairness. If in a capitalist sense, no it isn't fair. But in a more balanced or social sense, it could be considered fair.

Also, if you look at the NBA salary cap, there are restrictions on how much a player can make based on the number of years he's been in the league and the number of years he's been with the team. Teams have a set of salary cap incentives too with a soft cap, which if you pass you will start paying luxury taxes that are redistributed to smaller teams who are under the team salary cap. The actual hard salary cap is quite high and the luxury tax is enough incentive to keep teams well below the hard cap.
Props to daily star for revealing our mystery striker target.
According to them it's none other than grizeman. Arsenal all summer were in talks with him and he is valued at 60 million. I can say chances of us winning the champions league this season is higher than grizeman joining us.

But thanks to daily star for throwing in some sense of humor in this worry looking transfer window.
+1
not for 60 mil
+2
aint gonna happen
+1
Griezmann would have been a glimmer of hope only had Lukaku gone to Chelsea, to which then Costa had gone back to Atletico...

And then there's probably once in a blue moon that we would have gotten Griezmann since the Manchester clubs or Barca come in with a £80 mill bid with 300k wages.


But u can see the domino effect that AW clearly believes in. Shame it didn't work tho lol
I was actually thinking about it the other day. The guy had a great tournament over the summer, is young and also looked pretty good alongside Giroud. The reason I thought of him is I've read somewhere that his release clause is 65 mil pounds or smth. Not sure how true that number is, would be nice to hear what others know about this. He is a great player, if the option is him for 65 or no one, I would definitely opt for him. However, I'm not sure that would be the best use of that money in general as far as the market goes.
I heard his release clause around 85 mil pounds
+1
They've given him a new contract so your number is probably more up to date Dani.
His release clause doesnt matter, he is one of the hottest players on the market rn. If he was available, which he isnt, the bids would go off the roof. Market value is variable according to different sources but above 100M. Either way, its the kind of business we are not in anyway.
As soon as he becomes available we'd be outbid by bigger clubs and Griezmann would have little reason to demand a specific move to Arsenal anyway.
oh szczesny that was awful..
+1
Too much triangle !!!! hahahah
http://arsenalfever.com/record-52m-deal-arsenal-favourites-to-beat-chelsea-for-colombian-forward/?

Record £52m deal, Arsenal favourites to beat Chelsea for Colombian forward


Looks like Wenger might troll everyone criticizing him with a big signing ??
In what position will he be?in the middle we have soo many option and i dont want him on the wing..its like putting oz/ramsey on the wing!!On paper its great thoughout the match its not a great idea
James can certainly play on the wing and is an upgrade to what we have on the right and I believe he has played up front for Colombia before. I also would be a bit surprised to see Ramsey in an Arsenal jersey next season. All depends on the new manager but to me he seems like he has always wanted to move to a bigger club (not that he'd start on Bayern, RM or Barca).
James never played for Colombia upfront. Always wide or middle (#10).

That being said, moving Alexis upfront and having James providing on the left would be insane. Could imagine link up play with James, Ozil, Cazorla, Ramsey and Xhaka?! Wow!

Just give Alexis to adapt. He can become our very own Aguero
+1
Or...Or...we could just buy an actual striker?
+8
We really dont need him!

hes not a forward, if this happens then Arsenal has really lost the plot
+1
GunzBlazing no strikers available, looks like Wenger not impressed by Lacazette. James to Arsenal will definitely bring the spirit up.
Idk why im still hoping to God that maybe we'll splash it on Griezmann.....
+1
I'll believe it when I see it..which I don't.
Gunnerpera there will be fireworks!
@DaniPak lets be realistic
lol im not saying we gonna sing any of those players
aint gonna happen
Why are you guys buying into this now? Haven't we learned our lessons yet? Get excited about it when it's announced. The speculation is so f*****g crazy with Arsenal it's out of control...oh so and so tried to fart and instead he s**t his pants and the manager hates a smelly arse. Now b/c of that he's linked with arsenal. lol wtf am i smoking.
Javier Hernández


DISCUSS?! IMO one of the best poachers in the game, guaranteed at least 10 goals in the league. Doesn't look very injury prone. Superstar in Mexico = fan generator = $$$
Also looks like a speed daemon from what I have seen, Ozil would totally love that.

Javier has a pretty decent first touch by the looks of it and is a CLINICAL finisher.
he's an good player, but not consistent enough in the past, last year seems like he was pretty good, but personally he should stay at Bayer, they suit his style. but I'll take him under 20m, if we're desperate enough.

Also, Bayer usually play in 4-4-2 system, he's more productive in a two striker system, though he can play as lone center forward, but i don't believe he perform his best in one striker system.
All this talk about cheese dorito to arsenal and he goes and breaks his hand by falling down some stairs. Way to go guys...lol the curse is strong with this club
+1
I can't even...


I am sorry Chicharito, it was totally unintentional.
pretty quite, in term of transfer news, which means, Arsenal are about to sign a top player in the coming days.

you heard it here first.
aint gonna happen
I think even the media knows a large portion of the fans have stopped believing in their bullshit click bait so they too have given up.
Mustafi 'not for sale' says Valencia coach Pako Ayestaran

@Xgooner - I said you can change DP once Mustafi signing is complete...lol dont blame me now:P :P
+6
Thats a common thing to say to you want to add on some extra £££
I think Arsene Wenger has used that line before.

But money talks and players walk.
Arsenal are used to being milked lol
