Ospina
Gabriel - Holding - Koscielny - Gibbs
Xhaka - Ramsey
Iwobi - Ozil - Perez
Alexis

Good looking team
Dat bench...
oooh perez be winging with alexis up top. hope to see some juicy shizz
Deep AF
Arsenal XI: Ospina, Gabriel, Holding, Koscielny, Gibbs, Ramsey, Xhaka, Iwobi, Ozil, Lucas, Alexis

Arsenal substitutes: Cech, Mustafi, Monreal, Elneny, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Walcott, Giroud
I shouldn't have put those dashes in the team line up otherwise I'd have posted the team first! :P
we're going full strength vs Basel tomorrow
That's obvious. And meanwhile hoping PSG to fail
I still think We should give Perez a start ahead of walcott in that one
+2
Think will start best XI and look at PSG half time score.
If they are up, AW will rest/sub Sanchez and Ozil.
Wenger actually said in the presser, that they will have a look whats going at psg game at half time
We're playing Stoke at home on Sunday, then Everton away on Tuesday, then City away on the next Sunday...
We should field a strong squad tonight but still rest some of our best players.

1. Basel isnt as good as they were this season.
2. We have a rough week coming up.
3. Finishing first in the CL group would be a big advantage.
4. There is very little chance that PSG drop points against Ludogorets.

All in all, I expect some changes but far from a Mickey Mouse Cup line up.
+1
Chargui,completely agree with you.
With some changes we can still beat Basel,though its unlikely that PSG drops points at home.

Was hoping atleast Alexis would get a rest.
so that he can be fresh for that heavy schedule in EPL
+1
If psg takes a 2-0 lead by the end of 50-55 mins mark then wenger should sub him off around 60 min mark but knowing him he wont do this lol

Rubbish. Daniel Levy does not do release clauses.
It comes from Football Leaks who's been leaking contracts of Belgian players yesterday. Looks like he did put a release clause in.
also idk who's Van Djik's fan here but he also has 25 million pound release clause :P
actually is the contract release clause stuff legit ? as far as i know, if some club willing to pay for that clause, the club cannot reject it, but it doesn't seems like the case as we bid for suarez. we certainly paid his clause + $1 lmao, but liverpool is still able to reject it. So, sometimes i feel the release clause is bullshit.
+2
Liverpool's case was completely different in comparison to this one. In Liverpool's case we triggered something called a 2 party meet clause which meant that we could meet suarez to discuss a possibility about a move (which he was interested) but Arsenal thought it was release clause. In this case, once the 25 million is triggered you can directly speak terms of a contract with the party itself.
+2
I don't care what "Football Leaks" has to say - he does not have a release clause I can tell you that with 100% confidence, furthermore, he will soon sign a new contract anyway.
Both the Manchester clubs can use some defenders.

@footballdoc you have nothing to worry about then :D
+2
Players pay their own release clauses. So the most important thing would be, is the player interested in joining another club?

If say Arsenal want Suarez and his clause is 40mm, Arsenal with Suarez's permission, would pay the 40mm to Pool on his behalf. So you see, it only works if the player wants you to buy him out of his contract.

Suarez said he didn't. Steve G advised him to wait for "better things"
Suarez wanted to move. The problem was it wasnt actual release clause.
http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11675/10685499/toby-alderweireld-set-for-talks-with-tottenham-over-a-new-contract

Read the article, also mentions Pochettino dismisses these claims of a release clause. As I said before, Levy does not do release clauses.
Football Leaks | Liverpool attacker Roberto Firmino has an anti-Arsenal clause in his contract, blocking him from joining AFC from LFC ever



If that's true... Can we bid for coutinho for the bants
lol John Henry is so triggered after the suarez thing, its hilarious XD
Loooool
@Xgooner .. but for how much? Coutinho doesn't have a release clause.


Release clauses are part of contracts only when the player wants it to be, hence why Coutinho doesn't have one. Also the reason why Firmino's is set so high.
edit: lol its 98 million euros
Bosman time ;-)
We are playing Preston north end in the fa cup away
We won two consecutive FA cup already we need to focus our all energy on EPL. I think we should let bench player and youth have a go at it.
^ LOOOOOK... we have enough bench strength to go for FA cup as well.

There is no such thing as we won Consecutive FA cups so we can slip it through this time.

+2
FA cup is always a target trophy it's more reputable then the Micky mouse cup.

Aim should be atleast the FA cup this year I don't think we should lose momentum on what we do well with rather build with that momentum
+1
We're good enough to try to go as far as we can in every competition. FA Cup certainly is an objective, so is te PL, and I'd say anything less than quarter finals of the CL is a disappointment.
+1
how about league n cup double like the good old days, used to be main objective..
By the way, Preston North End is the only other club in England to have managed an entire league campaign undefeated lol
No epl this season probably means no Sanchez and ozil at the start of next season
I'm too honest sometime that's why people don't like what i said and guys guess what we are not going to win the league unless we improve extremely.
Its not a matter of honesty but one of realistic ambition. You think we are not good enough to win the double and I think we are. We are showing to be just as good as any team in the country this season. We have depth and clutch players all over the pitch. If we are not good enough now to set high objectives, I dont see when we will be.
Sian what honest about your statement? you saying not to go for FA Cup, let youngster play and focus on the league. After you say we are not going to win the league unless we improve extremely. So dont win the league and dont win FA Cup, so you saying you dont want us to win anything?

As for our team, I think we good enough to win the league.. We've got two of the best offensive players in Ozil and Sanchez. One of the best RB in Bellerin, the best CB in the league in Koscielny, one of the best GK in Cech. Midfield is solid, sucks that Cazorla injured for longer, but i do believe in Xhaka. We've got quality all over the pitch, soo ye we are good enough to challenge. We should be aiming for FA Cup as well, cause we've got deep squad that is capable of going for all the competition.
Mertesacker bellerin and giroud are back in full time training
and cloudst is back on FT and in full embed mode!
+2
:)
bellerin is so key to our team n he's definitely been missed..
Mad business of football game

http://www.standard.co.uk/sport/football/alexis-sanchez-and-mesut-ozil-want-parity-with-paul-pogba-and-league-s-top-earners-but-arsenal-a3412211.html
If that's what they want give it to them. Keeping them is more important than a new signing. Those two alone will attract so many quality players for years to come. They are the sort of players who make people hand in transfer requests just for a chance to play with them.
+4
stingy club won't give them that amount to be honest. I will just hand them both 250k per week. It's 100k extra for what the club willing to pay. Selling off some deadwood might help, but i can't think of anyone to be removed atm.
+1
Jenkinson, Mertesacker
£200k is not a bad offer from Arsenal. It only looks bad because Utd are paying ridiculous wages for average players.

They want "parity" with the leagues top earners to reflect their status in the game and that is fair. In ANY other profession you expect to be paid well for performing well and if you see pillocks like Rooney on £270k then logically guys like Sanchez should be worth more.

The problem is that bumbling elephants like Rooney are paid more than their true worth. It leaves Arsenal with a tough choice - match it or lose your best players.

Losing them would arguably cost more than the wages they are demanding, once you factor in transfer fees for replacement players and the potential detriment to domestic success.

Get with the times, Arsenal. It's disgusting to shell out that much money to anyone but this is the state of the game. Until salary caps are introduced this will inevitably spiral. Might as well keep our best players until then.
+3
Am sure they will accept anything in the region of 230-250
We're gonna lose someone our budget is being stretched big time. Thinking Ramsey might be gone soon
+1
not that I condone this, but I think Santi may also be on the chopping block. He is over 30 and this is a second surgery in a year, and this time from something that seemed so minor. Wenger is going to see how he recovers but he might be weary of an Arteta situation where it is impossible for him to remain healthy. It would be foolish to get rid of ramsey in the hopes Cazorla can stay fit for 1 or 2 more seasons.
I think we're getting rid of both Ramsey and Santi tbh

With wilshere returning next season I really do see our midfield being based around wilshere, elneny, Coq and Xhaka. It makes sense plus Ramsey and Santi both have value and wages that we can give to ozil and Sanchez

The other factor is the title challenge factor I think Sanchez and Ozil have been here long enough to know what a type of a team arsenal is. They want to see if we can push the boundaries before also committing as well.

Some issues that will answered at the end of the season which is why I think going passed the first round of the knockout phase of the CL is gonna be important this year.
I don't see the sense in keeping wilshere and selling Ramsey- he has been fit more consistently and performed better than jack in the past 3 seasons. Not to mention this whole season Ramsey will have opportunities to bed in with the other midfield options and wilshere will be completely unknown how he works with xhaka elneny and even coquelin
It's gonna cost us more to keep Ramsey that's the difference. Wilshere has a lower contract I think and has a 4 year deal still while Ramsey has less. He has value and doesn't seem very committed to arsenal anyway.

Would be smart to cash in where we can distribute some wages the other player in danger is Theo if not Ramsey he's on astronomical wages and has 2 years left too
AW won't sell Ramsey. Even if he wants to, who is going to buy ?
he won't buy he's bringing back Wilshere O_o did you miss what i'm saying here completely diontan?
I mean who is going to buy Ramsey even if aw is going to get rid of him
There will always be someone.

"One man's trash is another man's treasure" - as the saying goes.
I could realistically see him going abroad.
That Sanchez performance was basically saurez for us.
+2
Never seen suarez drop a keeper like that
+1
Really? Lol go YouTube saurez v norwitch
+4
Just not the same:)
Bellerin is back in training
