Sanchez now asking for £500,000 a week from psg. At this rate by the time the window closes it will be a million a week. I do wonder a little because the same report said Sanchez was in Paris on Friday with his begging bowl, when he was actually in Chile, No doubt darning his socks because he needs the money.


1.) 23 Jul 2017 00:18:15
As reported, if Neymar goes to PSG on £600k per week, Sanchez won't settle for a paltry £400k.

Maybe, as part of the transfer, we make up the other £200k 😁.

2.) 23 Jul 2017 15:06:59
and here we were all thinking it was just about him wanting to win trothies! asked too much for bayern, might ask too much for psg, maybe he is pushing to leave man city as the only option, but both you would think would be better options for guaranteed trophies than city.

3.) 23 Jul 2017 15:25:45
Or it could be absolute B. S. Eden.



08 Jul 2017 23:49:35
Reports saying we are willing to sell sanchez to citeh for £80 mil. We don't sell our best player to a rival who finished above us for £180 mil. It isn't an option. We don't do it again ever. It would show a total lack of ambition and weakness. I also think there would be riots. We don't make that mistake again, ever. Never ever.


1.) 09 Jul 2017 00:14:30
Wenger and Gazidis have said they won't sell Sanchez and Ox to a prem rival.

2.) 09 Jul 2017 01:52:49
Thanks Dags that has put my mind at rest. Must be the gutter press. It can't be true. I will sleep now.

3.) 09 Jul 2017 07:12:30
Lol Steve.

4.) 09 Jul 2017 09:11:05
Couldn’t agree more Steve, we must stop selling players to our rivals in the Prem. However as I have said before hopefully we will stop letting players contracts run down to the last year. This would give the club more leeway in the future.

5.) 09 Jul 2017 09:26:16
Personally for 180 million I'd sell Sanchez to Spurs if they were prepared to pay it.
180 million buys you Gareth Bale as a replacement while PSG or Bayerns 40 million buys you Di Maria?
Ok I know the 180 million is hypothetical but if City want to double the 40 million we can get elsewhere i'd take it and concentrate on using it to make us better rather spend my time worrying about City.

6.) 09 Jul 2017 10:52:47
Also, outside of EPL, who will pay 80m plus 350k per week wages? Either here or China.

We must start winning to keep world class players.

7.) 09 Jul 2017 11:03:54
Do we really let contracts run down without trying or do players have so much power now. If they can leave for free - then that adds more wages for them and more power!

We sort the power thing out by winning trophies so they want to sign for us! That's been a big issue. If we were champions - would Sanchez want to leave?

8.) 09 Jul 2017 11:19:58
Gunner remind me again, why would a garath bale come to a team that sells its best platers to its rivals to win the league, when he left one to go to one with ambition. And to one who wouldn't give you the sweat from their foreheads if they saw a rival dying of thirst in the gutter. He wouldn't and neither would any player who wants to win things.

9.) 09 Jul 2017 15:07:13

10.) 09 Jul 2017 17:06:15
Ok Steve Bale wouldn't want to join us but neither would anyone pay 180 million for Sanchez mate, hypothetical transfer fee from you hypothetical replacement from me :-)
If we want to talk reality then Sanchez will almost certainly leave and we will almost certainly struggle to find a replacement for him but one thing is for certain City's 80 million goes a lot further than PSG 40 million towards that replacement.

11.) 09 Jul 2017 17:07:50
I don't see us selling to a rival as liverpool don't seem too interested and everton have rooney now. he could move to a club above tho. city for example.

12.) 09 Jul 2017 18:55:45
I get your point Derby and don't disagree with it either, but either way don't worry about City anymore than they would worry about us, if they were looking to off load Ageuro which of course they aren't I'm sure they'd prefer our 100 million to Barcelona of Bayerns 50 million.
Of course we would all prefer to see Sanchez move abroad as our second choice but we shouldn't bite our noses off to spite our faces.

13.) 09 Jul 2017 19:01:13
Not sure we will want to take a 80m haircut either - not many clubs can afford such luxury. Probably just City and Chelsea can take that higher ground, another example of the unjust inequality due to their owners wealth rather than how well the club is run on / off the pitch.

14.) 09 Jul 2017 20:02:03
Ii personally think City are a very well run club and Chelsea seem to have joined the real world much more the last few seasons SY, would we feel the same if Usmanov got control not Arsenal I wonder?

15.) 09 Jul 2017 21:07:06
62 - where would city be without the unearned billion they spent?

16.) 09 Jul 2017 22:02:51
Where would Arsenal be if wed stayed at Woolwich SY? :-)
Its a silly argument simply because if the if the City owners had bought Arsenal instead of City we'd all be enjoying the fantastic players they funded and probably the titles that came with them.
Let's not belittle others let's just concentrate on us for a change.

17.) 09 Jul 2017 23:35:19
I agree gunner, let's concentrate on us and not sell sanchez at any price to a rival. That would be good for us. Lol.

18.) 09 Jul 2017 23:53:47
I think we are about to let sanchez go if we can get lemar done. and I won't mind that, of course I love sanchez but its got this far.



27 Jun 2017 22:43:13
Right, rumours getting stronger about matuidi, this is the player we need an absolute beast of a player. He should be our no 1 target. I hope there is legs in the rumours. He would be our new vierra.


1.) 27 Jun 2017 23:23:55
Him then Lemar, Lacazette, Kjaer and the new left wing back!

Happy days

Actually it's alphabet players - K (new guy) plus Kjaer, Lacazette, Lamar, Mahrez and Matuidi.

2.) 27 Jun 2017 23:25:06
I meant Kolasinac of course.

3.) 27 Jun 2017 23:30:12
According to rumours we have signed Matuidi, Lacazette, Mahrez and Lemar.

Don't believe the tabloids.

4.) 27 Jun 2017 23:58:02
I got my rumour from the mill.

5.) 28 Jun 2017 00:00:23
Dags, Kol, Mat and Map would be all I would want this summer, I don't want any more and to keep sanchez and ozil.

6.) 28 Jun 2017 00:03:44
matuidi would be my last pick of the psg cms. verrati and rabiot ahead of him but I won't complain he's a warrior that lad and any team is better with him. I think he could help xhaka no end.

7.) 28 Jun 2017 01:14:45
Agree with that Steve 🖒.

8.) 28 Jun 2017 06:55:30
We are being linked wth many players, which is usual. However, we have a very full squad and Wenger told us to expect only 2 or 3 signings. We have already made one signing in Kolasinac and I can see a forward and a replacement for Sanchez, if he goes.

9.) 28 Jun 2017 08:08:01
Arsene says many many things RG as we know not all he says is what he really thinks feels or actually means.

10.) 28 Jun 2017 11:19:09

These are all similar players - pacey, wide forwards, with good goals ratios.

We will never ever sign all, we are signing one, and probably to replace Sanchez.

11.) 28 Jun 2017 12:11:33
I'm with Steve, Matuidi is a beast with a great attitude and he does improve any team he's in. Leads by example.

Also, is it possible for Arsenal to be linked to a CM without someone comparing him to Viera?

12.) 28 Jun 2017 13:29:55
TPG, sorry. Lol.

13.) 28 Jun 2017 14:53:37
What a day this is. An optimist today and a sorry. I think it's going to be a great summer.

14.) 28 Jun 2017 15:05:26
Matuidi is definitely the type of player we need. Kolasinac, Matuidi, Lacazette would be a very good window so long as we keep Ozil and Sanchez!
Also been hearing a lot about Lemar in last couple days and supposedly a bid over well over 30mil.

15.) 29 Jun 2017 14:17:29
Dont think he could be the new Vieira, unless Vieira was also close to collecting his pension when he signed! Matuidi is already 30, which probably gives you a clue as to why PSG would be happy to cash in now. He is a very good player, but can't we find someone coming into their prime rather than at the end of it?

16.) 02 Jul 2017 10:37:23
While I don't expect us to sign matuidi, I would very much welcome it. Would be a great signing even with his age.

& EppingGunner. 30 doesn't always mean decline.

Pirlo's best years were well beyond 30
And I'm pretty sure Zlatan has nearly scored as many goals since turning 30 than he did in all the years that preceded it.

Matuidi has hardly dropped in level, just psg want to blood their younger more exciting midfielders.

{Ed001's Note - he would be an excellent signing imo. Quality player.}



05 Jun 2017 17:23:34
Wow, I hope this saed kalasinac is good for 144,000 big ones a week.




19 May 2017 21:36:58
Is everything moving in the direction of major change this summer. It definitely is setting up for the chance for it to happen. Wenger out of contract, worse season for 21 years and gazidis being offered a new job away. Am I reading too much into it as well as kronkes new stadium costing twice as much as it was going to be. The extra cash would be a help. Lol.

An amazing story coming out, if true. We buy back Wellington for a fee approx 4.5 mil to sell on for 6 mil profit, easy money, yes. Trouble is we couldn't have done our own medical or not properly, he's only gone and failed medical of joining team. Incredible, we are stuck with him now, apparently.


1.) 25 jul 2017 16:24:43
the entertainer music comes to mind 😋.

2.) 25 Jul 2017 17:14:18
Some mothers do have them more like gunner. lol.



21 Jul 2017 20:03:51
Just seen the teams in the Europa and we are ranked way above the others so easy win next may. We are also ranked higher in Europe than chelski or man utd, yeah right.


1.) 21 Jul 2017 21:29:16
Another positive post.

2.) 21 Jul 2017 21:35:14
Yeah right any official ranking can't possibly be right If it makes Arsenal look half decent. Obviously a load of crap as were rubbish p.

3.) 21 Jul 2017 22:27:55
No sano can't be right we have always done better in Europe than them two. I think compared to them we are giants of Europe.

4.) 21 Jul 2017 23:37:15
Are we ranked 11th?

5.) 22 Jul 2017 00:17:52
Correct Dags, mind you wasn't Belgian ranked no 1 in the world, another strange thing. Can't remember them ever winning anything.

6.) 22 Jul 2017 00:43:17
Do you understand how that ranking works? Unlike those two sides Arsenal haven't missed out entirely on European football in any of the five last seasons so naturally Arsenals coefficient is higher. This year with the EL will hurt the coefficient score since it offers less points unless you go really far.

And btw despite the fact they have had seasons without European football the difference to United who's the "furthest" behind is just 6 points so clearly Arsenal have been poor in Europe. And the only reason Chelsea is behind in the 17/ 18 ranking because they drop the points from 12/ 13 when they won the EL.

You're also incorrect because in the club-coefficient ranking that actually counts which is 12/ 13-16/ 17 Chelsea are ranked 10th and Arsenal 11th and that's still despite Chelsea getting less than 3 points for the entire 16/ 17 season.

{Ed033's Note - All that ranking is enough to make you go blind 😋.

7.) 22 Jul 2017 01:22:28
Lol Ed, very good 😁.

8.) 22 Jul 2017 02:01:29
Oh right, that explains it all, I'm not sure I'm up to all this ranking either ed.



21 Jul 2017 18:47:54
It will be interesting to see who has signed the best striker for next season, with us man u and chelski replacing the second third and fourth highest scorers in last year's Orem.


1.) 21 Jul 2017 19:03:48
Orem, Where did that come from, prem.

2.) 21 Jul 2017 19:09:33
See you're getting the hang of that flash new phone mate. 😉.

3.) 21 Jul 2017 19:26:41
Stoner I'm in a battle with it. Some of the word changes are just plain weird.

4.) 21 Jul 2017 19:28:10
BBC are running a poll on this right now and last time I checked Lacazette was roughly 25% ahead in a cross section of football fans views.

5.) 21 Jul 2017 19:50:17
You need a good set of thumbs to get the best out of these new phones Steve, I think this your problem stems from mate :-)

6.) 21 Jul 2017 19:51:03
For some reason the vote is closed now gunner.

7.) 21 Jul 2017 20:05:10
Ha ha gunner, I've lost mine, so that's it.

8.) 21 Jul 2017 20:23:56
Lacazette was the cheapest of the 3 mate and it's anyone's guess how each one will prove the best value for money in the season ahead, we can think this that or the other but only time will tell.
Chances are a 10 million bargain buy will outshine all 3 and we will all be saying we should have signed him instead of Ok Lacazette :-)

9.) 21 Jul 2017 20:29:16
Lol Oteve,
Sorry, I mean Steve 👍.

10.) 21 Jul 2017 21:10:57
Have we all got the same phone.

11.) 21 Jul 2017 21:34:41
Orobably 😊.

12.) 21 Jul 2017 21:35:47
happy with lacazette over both but the one to get for everyonee was aubameyang.

13.) 21 Jul 2017 22:03:36
I'll put money on it you've both got Ophone 7's 😂😂.

{Ed033's Note - Ophone 7's, is that a.k.a. fat finger syndrome?

14.) 21 Jul 2017 23:23:39
Derby I will be pleased with lacazette if he outguns those other two.



12 Jul 2017 21:10:08
Now thumb gate is over. Is anyone actually going to leave arsenal, with all the fake news we should be down to the bare thumbs ( sorry last time ) bones. But nobody has gone. Well except sanogo and he went without saying goodbye.


1.) 12 Jul 2017 22:17:30
I would say at least 5 mate, Debuchy, Jenkinson, Gibbs, Ospina, Perez and Campbell with Giroud also stating he's not certain where he'll be.

All of those without the Sanchez situation.

The first 6 have little chance of much game time and Giroud with be thinking he needs to play regularly to keep his place for France with the World Cup on the horizon.

2.) 12 Jul 2017 22:18:58
By rule of thumb as players arrive others will leave, did I just! I did didn't I :-) :

3.) 12 Jul 2017 22:38:32
Steve - over the years we seem to struggle to sell our 'average' players. I think the problem (which our wage bill confirms) is that Arsenal pay fringe players over the odds. Walcott for example is apparently on 150 a week. Who's going to take that on?

4.) 12 Jul 2017 22:49:03
I agree but whose going to take them. They are on very good money and will be hard to shift on. They have been hard to shift on, in a few cases. It has been said we are close to being over our foreign quoter as well.

5.) 13 Jul 2017 07:43:00
To be fair to all of them they are not shocking players and we are going to have to accept a suitable fee and they'll have to accept suitable wages.

Surely they all want to play football.

6.) 13 Jul 2017 10:58:20
Want to play football? Stoner mate, I think they're all just thumbing their noses at us.

7.) 13 Jul 2017 11:57:23
It's clear an overhaul of how we do things is not only needed but I think is crucially recognised and accepted by the club and quite likely even Arsene himself.
I know Arsene had once had a very socialist policy of time served with the club being rewarded which in principle is very honourable way of doing things but it just hasn't worked out as he had hoped.



12 Jul 2017 14:47:01
Lanesra there are people on here who vote themselves up and vote others down on a systrmatic basis, I even tried on a few occasions to try and catch certain serial voters out whom to me were obviously doing it. I complained to the ed ( who will remain nameless) and I can't vote now and do you know what, its great. All I see is the posts, no thumbs. And I know who the serial abusers are. Sad really, on both our parts.


1.) 12 Jul 2017 15:14:17
Steve, for a man who doesn't care about having his thumbs pinched you ain't half going on about thumbs a lot mate :-)
Have you tried asking for them back nicely? :-)

2.) 12 Jul 2017 15:51:11
Why does anyone even worry about it. Personally I thumbs down everyone 😂😂.

3.) 12 Jul 2017 15:56:31
Tell me about stoner it's proper sad case material.

4.) 12 Jul 2017 15:54:04
It's hilarious I can't believe fully grown men are getting all upset about it. So what big deal someone has thumbed down your post. I think if you look it's the individual not the content of the post that gets thumbed down more often than not.

5.) 12 Jul 2017 16:27:01
To be fair I put a thumb up if I agree or one down if I disagree. Aside from today. This post and la do da I forgot your name I put one earlier just as banter 😊.

6.) 12 Jul 2017 16:28:42
In future I will just reply with this 🖕Or this ⬇️ Or this ✖️ Or this ❌ or of course this 👎🏼and may add the look of, wtf 🙄 to add weight to my disagreement. 😂.

7.) 12 Jul 2017 16:28:47
Ha ha sano, i'm not upset, I find it very funny that people do it. But its also a bit sad. Anyway we might have something else to talk about if we sign mabappe. Or matuidi.

8.) 12 Jul 2017 16:44:54
I find it funny that people think it's weird to agree or disagree without getting into some large debate. I personally don't use it but now I have found a purpose for using it so il mash the hell out of it lol.

9.) 12 Jul 2017 16:57:20
Dags is the worst, he always gives a big thumbs up. Lol.

10.) 12 Jul 2017 17:10:52
I don't usually use the thumbs but I went through all Lanesra's posts today and gave each one a thumbs down. I don't even know why I did it, I just did.

Seriously though, it's weird seeing a bunch of grown men having hissy fits over this. I can't even describe this as childish, just pathetic really.

How do you lads deal with disagreements in the real world?

11.) 12 Jul 2017 18:37:47
I just start wind milling Sharpie, keeping my thumbs in of course, to avoid a nasty injury. 😁.

Gunner Jack was rated by a lot of people because he had that rare British talent, a first touch. Gaza is the only other recent one and that's why big foreign teams came sniffing.

Gunner we definitely don't need him. He hasn't got the best teams in Europe after him, why? He's not that good, can't even get in England team.

Blimey, British players compared to foreigners are poor, that's why they are never nominated for the big awards and our teams are so average on international competition. Sorry I don't know any current English midfielder with a great touch.

I think he's over rated but that doesn't mean he can't be good. Like a lot of British players his first touch is poor.
