Morning Eds,

I'm reading of minor links to Marcelo Brozovic this morning. Can anyone clarify that we are perusing this option?

I posted a couple of months ago and said that we should target someone like him and its looks as if he could be our man! No firm links though.

Glenn1308

{Ed001's Note - I don't know of any recent interest from Arsenal. I know he is well liked and if he were to be available I would not be surprised to see Wenger throw his hat in the ring. However I don't know of any move to prize him away as of now.}


1.) 15 Jul 2017 12:58:08
Would you have any knowledge on Girouds situation? Reports saying £35 mil offer from Dortmund. I hope hey stays; great attitude and header ability but understand before WC he wants game time and starts.

{Ed001's Note - there are a few offers for him to consider, he is keen to move on.}


2.) 15 Jul 2017 13:34:08
Thanks Ed001. I can understand his decision and wish some supporters show more respect for his contribution. Guess we need Welbz to step in up. Maybe we can reallocate those funds for partial of Van Dijk fee.

{Ed001's Note - you have already replaced him with Lacazette.}


3.) 15 Jul 2017 13:58:41
Ed have you heard anything more reliable than paper talk regarding Van Dijk? Any gossip of CB's leaving the club? I can't begin to believe there's any truth in this unless 1 or 2 are moving on.

{Ed002's Note - Done to death.}


4.) 15 Jul 2017 13:59:28
Yeah, I believe he is an upgrade for the starting XI for sure. However to have a target man with his arial presence and that option off the bench will be lost. I think Welbz is better running on to the ball and when played as target takes to long to get his shot off, in comparison to Giroud.


5.) 15 Jul 2017 14:33:26
Thanks Ed! Do you know of any links to a strong DM? I personally feel that we need a strong solid player in the middle of the field. This will allow Ramsey and Xhaka to be more attacking minded and really play to their strengths! Its another position we have needed to fill for years. Viera has never been replaced.

{Ed001's Note - Vieira was never a DM, he had Petit behind him, Vieira played the box to box role Ramsey plays. Xhaka is the deep lying player who sits, mostly. I do agree he could be improved upon, but Wenger likes him there.}


6.) 15 Jul 2017 21:22:16
You can see by giroud body language he is leaving had a chances to pass to lava today and didn't and when lacca went to celebrate with giroud he just walked away.


7.) 16 Jul 2017 01:24:29
It's all in the hips Stephen👍🏻 That was a bloody good pick up mate. It was obvious that giroud hates lacazette for coming to the Arsenal. If you looked carefully enough at the bench when lacazette was taken off you could see him pulling petals from a daisy and if I'm not mistaken he was muttering the words he loves me he loves me not he loves me 🙄.


8.) 16 Jul 2017 03:50:08
Xhaka is our strong dm, centre half? We already gout our very own BFG.


9.) 16 Jul 2017 21:10:09
Per retires next year and his use this year will probably be cup matches or Europa working with the young players. Gabriel is still injured, when Kos isn't playing our defense is shaky, and Holding is great but needs more time. During the Australian tour Elneny was deployed as CB but that can't be a long term solution.


 

 

27 Jun 2017 13:14:18
It is so important to keep Sanchez and bring in Lacazette.
If we lose Sanchez then yes we are bringing in 20 goals with a new striker but we are losing 20 goals by Sanchez leaving.

Someone please tell me how that improves the squad? It doesn't. Yes it gives us the striker that we have all wanted for many years but we are losing it in other areas of the field.

Bringing him in and keeping Sanchez is so so important for us going in to next season! Plus one more class signing is needed in the middle and get rid of some of the dross! Ramsey, Xhaka and? (suggestions) would be all we need. Coq, Elneny and Wilshere need to be sold and regain some capital :)

COYG!

Glenn1308

1.) 27 Jun 2017 14:14:44
I agree but I'd keep Xhaka and Ramsey!
Xhaka will be a quality player for us next season!


2.) 27 Jun 2017 17:23:40
Just imaging 20 league goals Sanchez 20 league goals lacaztte and 20 league goals from another winger that would be nice.


3.) 27 Jun 2017 17:21:41
I think he was saying to keep them mate.


4.) 27 Jun 2017 17:29:46
I know that's why I have put 20 goals each plus another winger 60 league goals would be amazing.


5.) 27 Jun 2017 23:24:48
100% keep Ramsey and Xhaka! Just need another class signing there too! It's the others in that position that need to go! But we have to keep the attacking options we have otherwise it's another tough tough season ahead. Come on Wenger let's do some quality business and show Sanchez and Ozil that there is a title winning side being built! It has to be built this summer though!


 

 

17 May 2017 10:46:01
Latest paper rumors this morning state that Wenger wants Tammy Abraham from Chelsea (on loan at Bristol City) . Is that really our ambition? Also, Jordan Pickford. Is he on the radar? Amazing keeper.

Glenn1308

1.) 17 May 2017 12:40:39
I'm sure Ed002 said he was last summer. Heard Everton are most likely to sigh him but we really should go in for him. Rate him highly and at 23 would be a great signing.


2.) 17 May 2017 12:52:11
i think he's a coup if we can get him. he's a killer in the box and imo will be better than welbeck for sure. but i'd want another striker aswel as him. hopefully sanogo goes.


3.) 17 May 2017 15:09:30
I was talking about Pickford btw. Not heard much about the other lad. I'm sure sanogo will be gone as his contract is up soon.


4.) 17 May 2017 20:18:23
Ah yes sanogo, i'm sure he will be ready to lead the line for us next season after his apprentiship. One for the future. Lol.


5.) 18 May 2017 01:14:43
I absolutely hate it when we're linked with a promising young player and people start blathering about a lack of ambition. These same people would be talking shite if we signed Mbappe last summer and Kante the summer before.

"An 18 year old unknown French player? Is this really the height of our ambition? "

Ugh.

When your top players are in the centre circle trying to create play up the top, you are always going to be in trouble! We are supposed to have a solid defence with a good defensive midfielder in front. A player who can do all the creating the middle of the field and then a threatening strike force! We currently have none of that and it's an compete embarrassment.

Defending is poor (like it has been for years). The midfield is having to defend too much because the defence is poor and then the attacking players are doing too much defending because we are all shocking at defending! It's hard to say that I even enjoy watching us anymore at the minute. Praying for change that's all I can ask for.

Glenn1308

1.) 10 Apr 2017 22:34:57
We our all praying for a way out from Wenger please leave.

With Lacazette imminent and the possible signing of Mahrez on its way, what do people think about a 4th signing?

Im over the moon that we could be signing some brilliant talent and a proven striker at last!

However, with Sanchez possibly leaving, i still feel another addition in the holding midfield role is needed? Sanchez's work rate both offensivly and defensivly will be missed but with our attack growing i think more solidarity in the middle would be best?

Leon Goretzka being a brilliant prospect to aim for! Thoughts?

Wenger did say 3 maximum but if Sanchez leaves (i hope not! ) then we can get some money back and bring in another?

Glenn1308

1.) 03 Jul 2017 15:52:19
He is one of those players that you can see instantly . Great player lots of drive and talent.


2.) 03 Jul 2017 16:14:55
Very much agree, and would give Ramsey more of a licence to push up, like he does with Wales. I also think we need a keeper.


3.) 03 Jul 2017 16:29:04
Agree with that 100% also. There are other positions in the team that need addressing but critical areas for me are those mentioned above!

Sew what happens ay! :)

Logically, are we ever going to sign a big name player if we don't qualify for the champions league? I doubt it.

We have chucked away a 10 point lead over Manchester United and a 12 point lead over Everton, to which we are dangerously close to falling into the West Ham, West Brom territory.

Unfortunately, we have owners who do not turn up to any matches and show little interest in how the club is managed or what success it brings, it is all about the money! If we make profit, they're happy!

We need to sign left back. That's obvious! No disrespect to Monreal but its time we had a world class LB to complete our defense!

As for midfield. What a shambles! We need a big strong center midfield player (like Viera or Yaya) to take ownership of the middle line and be a leader! This will allow the likes of Xhaka and Ramsey to play their game and pick out the incredible passes that they're capable of! Currently, they are left to do all the ground work defensively and it is clearly affecting our attacking options!

If Ozil and Sanchez are to stay then we need to make big changes! We need to sign a 25 goal a season outright striker who is proven! Sanchez on the wing to work his magic and Ozil sat behind in No.10! We won't have to worry about who is going to put the ball in the back of the net because we would have a decent striker!

Arsenal FC is slowly on the decline and if these players leave, we will not replace them with anyone of their calibur! Its time for change and Arsene needs to leave. Allegri in, players in and let's get back to where we want to be!

However, if the owners do not stump up the money (which they wont) then it doesn't matter if we get a new manager, it will all stay the same!

Lets see what happens. COYG!

Glenn1308

1.) 31 Mar 2017 19:52:50
Agree to most of what you are saying, its all pretty obvious ( I just think xhaka is a waste of space) and i've got a funny feeling we will be slippng even further back, when we get the managerial news.


2.) 31 Mar 2017 21:36:32
There is a plethora of decent LB out there that would make the grade! Also I would have a punt at Gueye of Everton. Then I feel we need someone to fill cazorlas possition, someone who will carry the ball and start off a move, I like Leon gortezka but is a gamble and still young a striker is for sure and someone more productive on the right. This is all with keeping ozil and Sanchez! An impossible ask probably.


3.) 31 Mar 2017 21:54:59
Still don't get it how you can see Ramsey as a part of a big change. he is first to go IMO.


4.) 01 Apr 2017 13:05:13
Striker wise. I would happily take Lukaku! Proven goal scorer in the premier league and a big big target man! Scores goals with his head and his feet and it's what we need! Lacazette would be another brilliant signing but he has already said he wants to leave Lyon to play in the champions league so he's not coming. In regards to the midfield (this is will never happen) but we need a player like Rakatic from Barca! Due to financial fair play they have to sell players. Will they sell on the front 3 in the summer? Of course not so maybe someone from their midfield will be sold? Another player I really like that we have been linked too the last couple of years is Rabiot of PSG. Chuck 30 million at them!

I don't want to sell him. We really need to keep him!

However, 50 mil for Sanchez and get rid of some of the dross we have in the team, we could make about 70/ 80 mil!

That covers the lacazette transfer. Bring in Mahrez and then add someone say Carvalho in the center?

5 at the back,
ramsey and carvalho (or xhaka and carvalho) in the middle.
Mahrez, Ozil and Lacazette from 3! (iwobi, welbeck, Ox and Walcott if needed)

Has to get these over the line! £30m on Lemar and no indication of a price on the table fro Lacazette. They want £57m! Surely £87m is enough!

But if they are rejecting £30m for Lemar, we must be looking at £100m+ for both players!

Only worry is Sanchez. Lemar coming in must mean he's on the way out if we get him! Or he fails on Lacazette and plays Sanchex up front on his own.

Jean-Michel Aulas has stated this morning that Lacazette will probably stay and a deal with Athletico in January is still possible.

He's a media hungry geezer anyway but i don't see this happening. Maybe Derbygooner found a good source but i certainly cant.

Not interested in but should be interested in.

Sanchez isn't going anywhere this year but if he were to leave, Renato Sanchez would be a fantastic addition to the center of the park and Douglas Costa, well. He could fit in any of the worlds top clubs so why not!

Kolasinac has been confirmed today and i reckon Mahrez and Onyenkuru will be the other 2 summer signings. Wenger stated 3 maximum and there's your 3. No proven world class striker though unfortunately.
