We need a wide player and another competent striker.

Or one wide player capable of playing through the middle to0

If we were linked to someone like that...

I'd be far more comfortable with one of each.

If van Persie goes down in January (touch wood) then it'll be a disaster, especially with Gervinho and Chamakh away in Africa. One player (Podolski for example) cant cover two positions at once.

We're not signing two players to cover gervinho's absence in January. That's just not Arsène's style, at all.

I fear both are now out of our price range. Podolski is a more likely signing. Someone who can score goals is a must. Defensively I think we can cope with the current personnel barring any further injuries.

What exactly IS our price range? and how much do these players cost? consider also that Lille and Dortmund are out of the UCL.

In: Reus and Demba Ba

Out: Chamakh, Arshavin, Squillaci, Almunia.

I'd love Ba (can't see that he has dodgy knees) and Reus as well although Podolski is my preferred choice as I think he'll adapt to the PL more quickly than Reus considering his experience.

How about Nedum Onouha as an emergency option on right back? I think he's a more than decent player and he can also play in the center. If we could loan him in Jan (although I highly doubt Mancini will let that happen) I'd do it.

redwhiteAustrian (Global Moderator) on December 19th, 2011, 1:49 pm

No, not Ba.
He could score hundreds of goals over the next couple of months, and I'd still say "no".

Take a look at how he 'got' his move away from Hoffenheim to WHam - read through this piece if your German is good, otherwise, use the Google Translator.

Terrible, terrible attitude.

Hazard won't score goals. No.
Götze is better in a Wilshere/Ramsey-role. Wenger won't buy him. So no.

We need someone like Podolski, Doumbia, Pato, etc. A real goal threat who can play as a winger and as a striker.

And we need a top-top-topclass LB and a backup striker.

With real fullbacks we'd won the game against City.

Can't see Ba leaving Newcastle. Marco Reus is either going to Munich or Dortmund.

redwhiteAustrian (Global Moderator) on December 19th, 2011, 7:03 pm

Ba will leave Newcastle as soon as a bigger club knocks at his door.
And if he's determined to leave, he'll do everything in his powers to achieve that.

what do you guys think of cisse coming here on loan, rumours saying hes unhappy at lazio. Plus they stuck him on the wing which proved it never worked well when he was at pool

GDeep (Forum Member) on December 19th, 2011, 8:37 pm

Re Ba, Why would Wenger pay a transfer fee for a player that was available for nothing a few months ago? Anyway, Europe is full of 2nd rate African strikers like him who can come in and do a good job as back up for us - N'Doye, Doumbia etc. I actually said we should sign one of these African strikers last summer (mentioned Ba too), but I was shot down by the snobs on here.

How about a striker from the lower leagues? Jordon Rhodes or that big guy at Southampton? Ricky Lambert I think.

I'm well aware that this will never happen though...



Arsène would never sell Diaby.

I think my screen is slightly damaged, because there's something weird at the end of Phil's post.

I wish CNN would stop talking about "North Korea's nuclear arsenal."

Call it a "nuclear capability," or a "nuclear stockpile." But please, stop sullying the good name of Arsenal!

Nathaniel Clyne was MOTM for Crystal Palace tonight, thought Sean Scannell was good too, Palace have 2/3 very handy young English players we should do go for.

Glovegun (Trusted Member) on December 20th, 2011, 10:41 am

GDeep - I do agree that there are some very good players in the lower leagues, but Clyne and Scannell aren't quite what we're looking for IMO. Zaha is the star turn at Palace but I don't think he offers much different to Walcott or Gervinho.

Lambert is pushing thirty now. Not very mobile, kind of Kevin Davies with a bit more ability. Adam Lallana is probably the best player at Southampton, but not sure if he's quite good enough for this level. Same goes for Snodgrass at Leeds.

As someone who watches Watford every now and then, I think Marvin Sordell has a big future, wouldn't mind us taking a punt on him.

Come on guys, I wasn't being serious. :lol:

I wouldn't have minded if we lived up to that description. We're more like "RPG Arsenal" these days. :wink:

Palace have never had a very handy young English player.

Unless you count late-bloomer Ian Wright as "young" while he was there.

Clyne is a good player, been one of the best players in the championship for a while I can definitely see him making the step up. Reckon Championship is about Scannell level though. It'll be interesting to see how Zaha develops aswell.

Edinson Cavani
Mario Gotze
Marco Reus
