Arsenal are ready to replace Vermaelen by making a £16 million bid for Manchester City defender Matija Nastasić according to the Daily Mail.

Still cant believe we are getting Ospina for under 5 million what a steal.
wow I actually just watched a couple of the piers morgan interviews and didn't feel the overwhelming urge to shank him.
+2
yeah I was actually surprised too
+1
That's interesting. Anytime he opens his mouth I want to kill him.
The only thing that really annoyed me was when he said that Song was the last best DM we had after Gilberto left. He really has no idea what he's talking about half the time. lol
yea lol but i liked that he acknowledged that he talks out of his ass most of the time and often regrets his tweets right after posting them haha
@Nowayout

What was wrong with that statement? Its true though. He as our only real DM after Silva.
+1
Song never was really DM. CDM maybe, but usually he played some odd b2b. Better without him. He was great player, but not able to sacrifice for the team with better positioning.
song was never a DM he more like did anything he liked
+2
Smh. So are we just going to going to ignore the season he played behind Cesc and Wilshere? What was he then?

And saying "playing where he liked" is just ridiculous. You can't possibly disrespect a managers others or 38 games plus and yet maintain your position in the team.
I f*****g loved Song. His hair was the main reason lol but his ability to link up incredible over the top balls to the c**t was enough for me to be a big fan of him. Why are you guys so picky about DM and CDM for concrete positioning?

Personally, I don't look too closely at that type of stuff to determine whether I like a player based on his positioning. Yeah, he was caught out of position a bunch, but A. It's center midfield (the most amount of space to cover) B. Football is a free-flowing game where holes open and close constantly so how can you not roam around a bit? and C. What player hasn't played out of position?

With that being said, I don't think I'd have him back in our squad at the present time. His best days are behind him and I wish him all the best in the world for the rest of his career.
I still think Remy would have been great for us, Sanchez__Remy__Walcott. More pace?
Doesn't matter now
Remy would be behind Giroud and won't start much at Liverpool either imo. He's a good quality second option but we'll manage, we know what we're doing.
+1
I have faith in Campbell. Not as a striker per-se but as a player that can do what Giroud does with more pace. If Campbell is given a chance and finds form, he will bench Giroud for a while I think.
+1
Wenger must first loan sanogo and promote Akpom to first team..Akpom is miles ahead of Sanogo in all aspects..
I would have liked Remy on our squad too.
Why do people rate speed so highly? In real life, speed in football is not that useful. Skill and intelligence are much more important than raw pace.

Or do you guys play FIFA so much that you're getting confused what reality is? :P
Ramsey future Captain????
+3
I don't think so lol. I think Jack will be our future captain. Ramsey has said a move to RM/Barca would be tempting in the future while Jack will probably stay here for most part of his career.

Also Ramsey is a tad shy. Jack already does captain like duties like welcoming new signings and young signings to the club. When OX signed, Jack went to watch his first youth games and helped him integrate into the side pretty quickly. He also makes it a point to know the youth players which I think is great for the team.
Would any of you guys accept Song back? if we couldn't get any of our DM targets especially Khedira, Benders, or Schneiderlin???
pfft no
Hardcore DM.

+1
Song is not a true DM I would not take him back just because we already have. Arteta who plays that role.
I know a lot of people on here s**t on him when he was here and after leaving for not being disciplined enough, but I would take him back because I loved watching him play. I think a lot of his skills were extremely underappreciated, and I love those chipped assists over the defense :)
+1
I loved how both of them chipped over to Man U & Barcelona (:
Gunnzo that was precisely the problem though, he was fun to watch. He shouldn't have been fun to watch going forward because that meant he wasn't really doing his job. He had some great assists over the top to our striker, but really he didn't do much in the way of helping our back 4. He should be given credit for giving Henry his golden moment though.

I don't see the benefit in having him back, nor do I appreciate the way he just left out of the blue.
+2
I don't think so. He's no longer a DM and is too ill-disciplined. He'll cost us games.
I didn't really consider him a dm, more a cm in an attempted double pivot that didn't work I agree. Still, I enjoyed it
Problem is he seems more ill-disciplined than he used to be. That punch in the World Cup was incredibly dumb. I still don't know why he did it lol.
Pool get remy
+1
Stuzza is better than Remy, expect them to be rotated often or both to be on the field at once
+2
it's expected, he will be main man there rather than being rotation here. Good luck to him
+1
Man their squad on FIFA is going to be so sweaty! Sturridge-Remy! Lord have mercy
+2
lol there's gonna a lot of pace whores in FIFA 15 xD
+2
If Wenger rates Sanogo so highly he must have a reason. I know that a lot of Arsenal fans have questioned Sanogo and Wenger but I think he can still surprise us. Let's not forget what a break through season Ramsey had last season. It usually takes our new signings a season or two to adapt to the PL. I personally think Sanchez might struggle a bit like Ozil did last season, and I think Ozil will do a lot better this season.

What do you guys think about Sanogo and how do you guys think Ozil and Sanchez will do this coming season?
+3
I expect Özil to have a slow start after the World Cup. It'll take a couple of weeks before he hits the ground running. Same goes for Alexis, but he should adapt to the physical demands much quicker than Özil. Sanogo is still very raw imo. He has the pace and movement to be a great forward for us. He just has horrible confidence when it comes to finishing. He just needs to get over his dry spell and score his first goal and he'll come good as the season goes on.
Expectations should always be tempered but I expect Sanchez to have a fine season, if he and other attacking players are reasonably healthy. I think his work rate and technical ability will open the pitch for other players that he can lean on in the early going.

I think Ozil will have a better campaign having the experience of last year and coming off of the World Cup confidence booster.

As for Sanogo -- while I don't doubt Wenger, I am not sold on him and would rather see one of the other young guys get an opportunity and see how they perform. He's young and he will improve, but windows are small and if he doesn't make more of his chance now I'm not sure if he'll succeed with so many other young talents.
people forget that Ramsey was good before he broke his leg, im not going to criticize Sanogo but to me he doesnt have much thats great about him the only thing ive seen is he can hold up the ball..but hes still young and has much time to improve but with standards to so high at the club he will need to prove himself on the pitch
+1
Sanogo is not ready for the top level..wenger must have his reasons for believing in him so all assume he is one of those players that blossom at 25-27...not everyone is Henry
Sanogo has barely played a full game for us, it's his first season and he's young. i thought the slaters wouldve learnt this by now. GIVE THE MAN SOME TIME.
Assuming we get a CB and DM and Considering the amount of strengthening/strength of our rivals, do you guys think If we do not bring in another forward, we'd be able to mount a serious challenge for the EPL and the C.L? o you think Sanogo and JC serve as good enough depth?

Keep in mind:

- if AW wants to use Sanchez as a forward, he may not (though he is expected to) hit the ground running.

- Joel Campbell, may also need time to adapt to the EPL

- Sanogo. Welp, nuff said

Interested in hearing your thoughts
Think we'll be fine without another striker. Sanchez, Giroud and Walcott are all players I'm comfortable seeing at CF. We're really only relying on Campbell/Sanogo/Akpom for like 10 starts plus some appearances off the bench. Doesn't seem like a problem area to me.
I'd loan out Sanogo for sure but who would want him in the EPL knowing he hasn't put in a goal for Arsenal since he's arrived. Maybe a team in the Championship but not sure.

As for JC he's quite clinical in his finishing so he'd really need to work on his movement off the ball to establish chemistry. When that's sorted I think he'll be ready. JC is far more ready than Sanogo.
+1
Walcott does 10x better on the wing, cutting in from outside. Sanchez I believe, will do fine, he has the trick and pace to get around. Ozil struggled, because we don't have Di Maria, Ronaldo, Benzema, etc.


If we won't buy another striker, Joel Campbell should stay with us.

ST: Sanchez, Giroud, Campell, Podolski, OX & Walcott.

CAM: Rosicky, Ozil, Carzola(or LM), Gnabry(RW/LW).

CM: Wilshere, Ramsey.

CDM: Arteta, Diaby, Flamini, Conquelin.

RB: Debuchy, Jenkinson.

LB: Gibbs, Monreal.

CB: Mert, Verm5(or another CB, if he leaves), Kos.

GK: Tex, Ospina?
sanogo?
I think he needs some game time, loaning to championship side or another team in PL.
I would put diaby in Cm
