    Awesome. It made me laugh and cry at the same time.

    However, I’ve never heard him say “buy, buy, buy”…what about substituting something like “you’ll be the first to know”?

    I absolutely love Arsene. He is a little bit a father figure for all of us. Certainly, on the day I would say, overall, people these days have maybe a lack of respect for him. I think that every supporter can imagine another manager who can improve the squad, but we won’t talk about specific managers. Let’s focus on the manager that we do have, and then we worry about other managers.

    Anyone, these days, would absolutely love for example Jurgen Klopp on their team, but what it comes down to is: do we have the money available. We have the money, yes. But we know the manager is cup tied. So, I like him, but if we bid you will be the first to know. Anyway, we have a little bit Steve Bould, who is coming back from a cold, maybe like a little bit new signing.

    I don’t know if Manchester United is in for him too, but if you call any club, Milan, Real Madrid, is also in for him. I like him as a manager. Will he cost a lot of money, that’s for sure. Nobody would deny that.

      Well said. There is something about his tenure that really does have a family feel to it. Maybe it’s love/hate at this point. He has been frustrating of late and has disappointed many of the faithful including me, but I cannot imagine anyone else at Arsenal even after 7 seven years of just the Champions League Admission Trophy.

    Tim…

    Loic Remy to QPR. M’Vila probably to QPR. Yanga-Mbiwa likely to Newcastle. Now I read that Belhanda is about to go to Fenerbahce.

    What the fuck is going on?! These are all France-based players who have been linked with some top clubs, going to, well, NOT top clubs. Am I missing something here? Can anyone explain why these rather good players are going for very decent prices to not the best of clubs?

    Of them, the only one I’d want at Arsenal is Mbiwa, but I’d fully expect the others to go to clubs in the top 6-7 in England – Liverpool, Spurs, Everton, Chelsea, the like.

    What the fudge is happening?

      It’s all about the $$$$$$$$. Turkey is experiencing great financial growth and the increased EPL TV money means any team can pay better wages than most other leagues.

      Also, when you consider the 75% tax rate in France, no wonder so many of their stars are leaving.

        That may be true, but it doesn’t explain why they are going to clubs like Newcastle and QPR and not, say, Arsenal and Chelsea. Is it because clubs of our stature are looking at better players? Yanga-Mbiwa seems very highly regarded, would he not be a target for us?

        In the case of Diame, from what I’ve seen of him he seems a bargain for 3.5 million, but I remain unconvinced that he’s good enough for us. He certainly looks all-action, but he doesn’t look particularly tidy in possession or a particularly good passer of the ball (haven’t looked at stats). It’s punts like that which have got us into this mess in the first place (after all, Chamakh was free). So I’d rather pay more for a better player, frankly, than take a punt on a player with a low transfer fee but may end up costing us a lot in wages if he sits on the bench for the next 4 years.

    funny funny stuff! I want new signings but someone like chamakh breaths life to the lifeless! Imagine the logistics of moving in the winter dampness, the misses would be pissed off!
