I'm no goalie expert, but it looked like that atletico goal vs real was casillas' fault. He made a similar mistake vs man u letting in a goal that was a cross. It's weird they play him so much, he seems like their 3rd best goalie at the moment
So who here is buying the new Fifa15 with Hazard on the cover? :P
£10 mil for Cech, get real! That's a joke. That's 1/4 the cost of Luiz. And Cech probably has as many good years left as Luiz. And Cech is just as influencial as any other player on our team. I'm not saying he's worth £40 mil, but he's definitely worth more than £10 mil. Unless he hands in a transfer request I wouldn't let go of him for anything less than £15 mil.
Goalkeepers in general don't go for much, Buffon was the highest and he was about £30. Neuer was only £20 as well (what a bargain). Add to that fact that Cech is above 30, hence the low price tag.

In my eyes he's worth every penny as much as Neuer but sadly he's aging :( and he's lost his box presence which he never really got back since his head injury. Even with that tho he's still one of the best goalkeepers in the world.

In a way, Thilbaut on Monday kinda reminded me of Young Petr. BTW, do we have a chant for Cech?

hey guys sorry for bothering. i need a help in getting the ticket to arsenal vs city this september and all of them from the official website are sold out. so any of you from london/manchester with extra ticket or know how to get one a.s.a.p. please hit me on my wall. thanks.
i know it's pretty weird asking from the rival fans, but help me im desperate lol
I don't get it...Why Chelsea fans should have the ticket for
arsenal vs city match?
PSG and Monaco are interested in signing Cech for 10m. Both are also open to a season long loan according to the Telegraph.

They also say Chelsea need to get rid of 1 foreign player to comply with PL rules - 2 to comply with CL.

I've got to say I find it quite comical the excuses being used by Wenger for not re-integrating Cesc back into Arsenal's squad. Not wanting to upset the balance. Not wanting big players to have to sit on the bench. Not wanting to pay the high fee for him yet they've been quoted as saying they are now ready to spend big. The hypocracy is rife.

Every year Arsenal have a couple players injured long term. Not having the depth to fill those positions is exactly why they've been stuck in 3rd/4th place for a decade. It's all fine with me. They're loss is our gain. As for Arsenal fans reading this, at least post with something intelligent or don't bother. I'm not trying to start a flame war here. I give respect to those intelligent enough to prove me wrong with well thought out explanations.

Cesc >>>>>>>Ramsey,Ox,Wilshere,Diaby

Prove me wrong. Show me statistically or any other way possible how any of those 4 gunners I mentioned are possibly better than Cesc Fabregas?

Wenger's reaction is like crying cold after he enters icing weather in the winter without the cloth on. He will get used to Cesc quality before the middle of the season
Wilshere and Ramsey are 22 Ox is 21 add Ozil and Cazorla and they have more then enough creativity in their mid.
Fabregas would have been a 30M+ luxury more so then a needed signing, Khedira would have been a better singing for their needs so I understand why they were more interested in signing him instead of Cesc.

it was very evident last season we needed a play maker and creativity since Mata left so Cesc was necessary and needed to fill gab for us not so for Arsenal who have enough playmakers but really needed a Khadira type in their midfield so they wont get bullied by the big sides.
Fabregas is Chelsea's best midfielder. He is also better than all of the Arsenal midfielders except for two. Ozil and Ramsey. These two can play at the same level as Cesc or maybe even better. Especially Ramsey.
Right, I'll kindly step aside when I read words that make sense. I asked Bayern fans in January for their honest opinions about who was better, Luiz or Dante, they all answered unanimously Dante. I left it at that.

So far the answers coming from gunners' staff and management is similar in that they think letting Cesc go was the best decision. I think they're going to regret what they did.
Arsenal's front 6 when everyone is fit: Arteta-Ramsey; Sanchez-Ozil-Walcott; Giroud.

They just bought Ozil and Ramsey just had the season of his life, neither will get replaced from the lineup. The weakest player in midfield is probably Arteta, and they're trying to get a more defensively sound player to replace him (Schneiderlin or Khedira)

I think Wenger was right to focus on what they really need, but of course watching him then go on to strengthen a title rival will leave a sour taste.

I also don't know why we're still having this conversation, let Arsenal fans debate about whether they needed him or not.
Fair enough Theo. I just wanted to hear an intelligent debate instead of the same old trolling. We usually get that on Chelsea Chat because we demand it.
Arsene regards Fabregas as only CAM than CM or box to box midfield. I don't think Arsene is going to bench Ozil for Fabregas and even if he used Fabregas in CM, it wouldn't be fair to Ramsey who had a good season and it is complete waste if Fabregas is used as DM.
whereas Chelsea had Ramires and Mikel in the double pivot for many years before Matic and Fabregas came. And even last year, because of lack of creativity, Matic was trying to do all by himself leaving Ramires behind in front of 4. when we lost possession, Ramires would commit foul after foul, making all of us question his ability as footballer. Having Fabregas (or anyone as creative/clinical/determined as him) makes all things more solid as it gives us stability in formation and effective dedication to our players roles.
Simply put, Cesc would not fit properly in Arsenal's system without displacing a few of Wenger's favorites. He would have to focus on playing as a CAM there too. But he fits perfectly with us in the Double Pivot.
See i don't think he will be a fit for double pivot here neither from what we seen in preseason he is perfered to play in front of Ram and Matic in 4-3-3.
hopefully he plays more in a deeper role against lower table side Matic is good enough to protect the back 4 against sides with less fire power in attack that should fix problems we had with those teams
I think our formation is closer to what Barca had Busquets / Xavi / Iniesta (4-3-3) the triangular 3 midfield. Even though on formation ours is 4-2-3-1, when we are playing Oscar is playing in the center of midfield a lot which makes it look like 3 midfield formation with Fabregas coming in late and provides key passes like Xavi at Barca.
well the reason I said he'd be goon in the pivot is what I saw from last game.
since he's playing a bit lower, he tends to get into more space and be able to create more. since the 4 in front of him are quick and aggressive, they draw the defenders with them and open up the play for Cesc to pick them out.

him and Oscar are a good combination because with Oscar playing the middle of the 3 (in a 4-2-3-1) we see Cesc going up more often since Oscar has the tendency to drop a bit. I agree totally about Matic being able to protect the defense on his own, so with that, Cesc has the freedom to push up and add yet another threat on the attack.

Here's a good article about what I mean. It came out before Cesc joined us, but it's a very good analysis (And prediction) of exactly how Mou is using him now.

weaintgotnohistory.sbnation.com/2014/6/6/5785442/cesc-fabregas-tactical-analysis
Plz in our dream, we would all like to see Torres leave either on loan .. he needs to move on
ok guys, let's cool it with the Torres posts. we all want him out. we get it. I honestly am tired of seeing his name here and us just complaining.

Seriously, nothing we can do but let the management work it out. they know what they're doing more than we do.
I will be so happy if the way the table is, is the way it stands at the end of May. Hope it happens like that.
