25 million plus miki from utd. Yes please.

Ben.sotiris1984

Are you a utd fan. It ain't happening. he's citeh bound.


2.) 12 Jan 2018 18:03:34
No, just heard the rumour and thought it was a good deal. Miki hasn't been given a chance by Jose and as we know his judgement of players is extremely questionable (kdb, lukaku)


3.) 12 Jan 2018 18:49:55
Hes been injured a lot, he isn't a man u fans favourite player, he doesn't seem to be coping with the prem, he's on 200,000 pounds a week and is struggling.


4.) 12 Jan 2018 19:26:20
The fact that they are man u fans means we can't trust their judgement of football, I suppose seven militant would have the best knowledge of the player and know if he would be a fit for the club and league. Almost definitely won't happen but would be nice to get a replacement and cash for him.


5.) 12 Jan 2018 20:11:28
united fan here. I think miki would be a perfect fit for you guys. The guy is clearly talented and works better in a team where he does not have to worry as much about defensive responsibilities. He can't dribble off both feet, good agility and a good burst of space. His biggest flaws are his physicality and ball retention. He gives the ball away 3 times out of 4 and it is very frustrating. He is also a massive confidence player and when it is down he is shocking. But if he can hit top form i am confident he will take the league by storm. I was so excited when he signed and want it to work for him at old trafford but it is looking extremely unlikely.


6.) 12 Jan 2018 20:33:26
P3 your taking the micheal aren't you. He would be good for us, works better in a team where he doesn't need to defend, he can't dribble, his flaws are physically and ball retention, always guiving the ball away and is frustrating. Struggles with confidence and is ideal for us. Yes i'm sure every man u fan would want him gone to arsenal and sanchez in a swap. Yeah right, well we ain't getting him and you ain't getting sanchez. He going to the noisey neighbours and to win leagues.


7.) 12 Jan 2018 21:19:31
wow talk about misreading someone's post steve. Firstly, in regards to the comment about defensive responsibilties, i think every football fan can agree that arsenal play a more expansive style of football than any mourinho team. Secondly, miki clearly has talent as we saw in Germany as player of the year it just has not worked out for him at united. Thirdly, I never said sanchez was coming to united, I personally think he is off to city. I was just adding my two cents worth in on my view on miki seeing as though he plays for my team. I think I am a much better judge than you mate.


8.) 12 Jan 2018 22:06:51
P3 I'm not doubting that you are a better judge. I just like the way you say he would be good for arsenal then come out with all these negative traits. I still think my original statement is correct. Man u fans aren't impressed.


9.) 12 Jan 2018 22:18:51
Oh and it should be 25 mil and martial, then we might start talking.


10.) 12 Jan 2018 22:40:29
Yeh that’s fair enough I was just pointing out areas which he needs to improve. But I honestly think your style of play would suit him better. Likewise he would fit in better in city or liverpool’s Team. Haha Martial is my favourite player so it would have to be £100m+ because that boy has some serious talent 😂.


11.) 12 Jan 2018 23:09:08
Funny i think martial would be a better fit for us.


12.) 13 Jan 2018 12:34:49
Arsenal have asked for martial swap deal with sanchez.


13.) 13 Jan 2018 17:10:46
Sb the only problem with that is sanchez. He wants citeh and we can't and probably don't want to persuade him to go to mardy maureen.


14.) 13 Jan 2018 22:25:48
Do you not think he could be persuaded with utd by the lure of playing every match. Pep likes to rotate especially his forwards and although when he is happy sanchez is a fantastic player would he get in every game ahead of aguero, jesus, kdb, sterling and silva.


15.) 14 Jan 2018 14:00:20
Despite the opinions vented above, it looks highly likely that Sanchez will go to United. Quite frankly, I don 't care where he goes, as long as he goes - his whining and groaning has become more than grating. With regard to Mkhitarayan, we tried hard to sign him when he went to United and opinion on this board was critical of the club for not putting in greater effort! If United offered £25m plus Mkhitarayan, I'd take it like a shot. It doesn't affect any other transfer targets, and leaves us considerably better off than the £20m City are reputed to want to pay.

Hey Eds, any truth in rumours about hirving Lozano and is he any good. Thanks.

Ben.sotiris1984

{Ed002's Note - Yes Arsenal and Everton are interested. He is having a good season.}


1.) 24 Dec 2017 08:28:30
Thanks.

Hi Eds, a lot of people saying Draxler is available is this true? I don't think it has worked out for him in France has it, So why would people think he would work in the EPL? What are your opinions on him being a suitable and obtainable sanchez replacement (if he was to leave) .

Ben.sotiris1984

{Ed002's Note - Draxler has been offered to two sides right now - one is from the Premier League but not by his club. They have not offered him for sale, if they did they would likely speak to Arsenal.}


1.) 19 Aug 2017 05:37:59
Great info ed002. I presume they're offering him on loan as he'd be unhappy with being benched for Neymar.

{Ed002's Note - As I said, PSG are not offering him to anyone right now.}


2.) 19 Aug 2017 14:21:39
Yeah, I misread your post I think.

Hi, is wenger hoping that by holding onto sanchez that when he leaves next year it will be abroad as opposed to city or another premier league team?

Ben.sotiris1984

1.) 01 Sep 2017 11:53:50
no he hopes he can convince him to stay or at least sign a 1 year extension to hold his value to the club, they will prob offer him about 350k per week to sign an extention for 1 year then sell him next year for 40/ 50/ 60 million depending on how he plays this year.


2.) 01 Sep 2017 14:26:16
Sounds just like Arsenal. Make our highest paid player the guy who, by his behavior and attitude, has made it plain he wants no part of being part of the club anymore. All in the interest of getting a monetary return by selling him.


 

 

29 Aug 2017 13:31:31
Swap sanchez for sterling, get Evans and go and get that illusive defensive midfielder. There will have been a lot of change in this window but go back to basics and leave the technical tiki-taki for next season. Defend with 6 (a back four and two defensive minded midfielders) attack with 4 with sterling, iwobi, Walcott, ozil, lacazette, giroud, Ramsey, Campbell and Nelson there must be a front 4 combination that works.

Instead of journalists continuing to ask the same questions, regarding sanchez, transfers and players attitude. They should be asking what has happened at the club to back up their 'catalyst for change' statement and what has wenger done to 'evolve' which I think he was quoted as saying (or something similar at least. These are the questions I want to hear answered.

Enough is enough, it's very heroic to say that players like sanchez, ozil and Ox are going to be kept and will honour their contracts. However it shows on the pitch that they don't whole heartedly want to be here, whether consciously or not. Sell them and you will no longer be planing your games or future around these players as it affects the here and now!

Ozil doesn't seem to fit in the team as good a player as he can be, our style of play or the EPL doesn't suit him. Replace him with a strong defensive midfield or strong box to box midfielder, this wouldn't have to been a red carpet style of player, just a hard worker. Look at kante, ndidi or can.

As for the ox if we want a player who shows glimpses of potential play Campbell or Theo. It would be painful to sell sanchez to city or another rival but if we can find an alternative and with a scouting system such as ours this shouldn't be difficult or just play 2 upfront (giroud and lacazette) .

26 Aug 2017 12:52:06
Hi Eds, quick question. You have previously said that the sanchez issue is the lack of ambition by the club. What is the issue with ox? Is it the same or does he simply not want to play as a wing back or play for us at all?

Ben.sotiris1984

{Ed002's Note - I don't know which Ed this is for. Certainly not me.}


1.) 26 Aug 2017 13:07:59
Its Ed001 who has said this about Sanchez on several occasions, and I personally agree with him 100% on it.


2.) 26 Aug 2017 13:52:28
Sorry, I thought that this was a widely shared opinion, ed002 what are your opinions on the sanchez contract situation is about if not lack of ambition? I've also just seen the ox's agent is the df who also have berahino on their books so guess their interest isn't in their player playing but money.

{Ed002's Note - I have no opinions on contracts at all. Sanchez wishes to leave - I have spent months telling you that.}

I think wenger could still make something of these next two seasons but he needs someone, board member or coaching staff or a collection of both to tell him when his stubbornness and blue sky thinking just isn't going to work.
In the past he continued to play fabregas at 17 years old, I remember one pundit specifically saying 'if wenger is one thing it is stubborn, and he will play that boy till he comes good'. It does work sometimes but sometimes he or anyone just needs to be told what they are doing isn't working. I think dein did this, viera and adams probably did this, which is why all our captains in recent years have been wilting flowers.

Oops. And the galacticos. Then look at Leicester and atletico teams with a couple of stars and the other 8 or 9 players are hard working determined players who will up their game in order to make the stars play to their full potential and not look for the glory themselves.

I'm not sure if wengers ambition is in question, I genuinely believe he wants to win and be successful. I think maybe he has forgotten how to win and become swept up in his view on how football should be played and needs someone to assist him.
Successful transfers since deins departure? Sanchez probably the only one and I think his ambition and desire to win was a bonus that wasn't the reason for signing him in the first place. No one can deny wenger can spot a talented attacking flair player and nurture them into a world star, however teams are not built on 11 star players. Look at England with Beckham, Gerrard, lamp arduous, cole.
