    let's put it like this; wenger can afford whoever he wants. if the player is available, wenger will sign him. contrary to what many thought, we do have a lot of money available.

    Ok, let's cut the bullshit. These overrated/overpriced/incompatible players will not be bought by Wenger: Rosicky, Torres, Ayala, Chivu. OK? Good.

    Secondly, Wenger buys a CB only if Cygan leaves. And I highly doubt the replacement shall be Kompany.

    My guess, he buys a goalkeeper, but the options of good keepers are dwindling, with Abbiati seemingly prefering bench warming Milan, Chelsea unwilling to sell Cudicini and Hilderbrand signing a new contract.

    I do think Arsène will try buying SWP, but it won't be for more than he paid for Reyes; and if Edu leaves we might try again for Angulo or an experienced midfielder. And that should be it; don't expect more than 2 buys.

    rosicky overpriced or overrated? amazing footballer and there was talk about dortmund being willing to let him go for as little as 7-8 mill pounds last year...

    angulo? he has already turned us down once. what makes you think he all of a sudden has changed his mind?

    Rosicky is incompatible. Check out my list. There would be no place for him on our team, when you consider Reyes, Bergkamp, Pires, Ljunberg, RvP, Cesc. I also do not think that Dortmund will be selling their priced asset for 7-8 quid, especially when the vultures start circling.

    Yes, Angulo. If Edu goes to Valencia, Angulo's already limited first team apperances will further decrease. He was tempted before and Arsène wanted him before, so he is still a possibility.

    well, i highly doubt angulo all of a sudden changes his mind. besides, i don't think he's good enough...

    rosicky is top class and very versatile. if edu leaves, he could be a replacement.

    I think Angulo is good enough, and apparently so did Arsène. The player was at first interested in us to go thorugh with talks all the way to the end, when an unwillingless to change cultures made him stay at Valencia. Edu means less games for Angulo-- this will make him question his want to stay at Valencia.

    No, Rosicky cannot be a replacement for Edu because Wenger's preferred midfield pairing is Gilberto and Vieira. Rosicky will not be willing to stay on the bench or accept the role Edu played.

    you talk as if edu has already signed for valencia. besides, i don't think edu means less games for angulo. edu is a central midfielder, while angulo is a right side midfielder. i don't see how bringing in edu will make angulo change his mind. optimistic at best..

    rosicky can be a "replacement". he is versatile. he can play up front, central midfield and even in a pires type left winger position. btw, he is on the bench today. so i highly doubt he'll cost us that much...

    Certainly true, Rosicky wouldn't accept Edu' role and even if the guy is class, it's not sure he'll be as good as Edu. Rosicky is a midfielder/playmaker very offensive.
    He would be an excellent bench player IMO

    Actually Edu going means less games for Angulo if Ranieiri starts Edu in the middle. It is apparent Ranieiri likes Sissoko, so this means Ruffete, Vincente, Fiore, Barraja, Abelda, and Angulo have to battle for 3/2 positions. NO.

    Again, Rosicky will not want to sit on the bench. He is the Czech's mots important player and a very good player indeed; he will not sit on the bench at Arsenal. The move won't happen.

    actually, nedved is the most important player...

    edu will compete for place in the central midfield, together with sissoko, albelda, baraja and a few others. angulo is a right sided midfielder and competes with rufete, fiore and a few others. still, if you think angulo will change his mind because of edu, then wel'll just have to disagree. this is just too absurd to even consider to me...

    rosicky won't be on the bench every game; just as edu, pires, reyes, bergkamp and ljungberg won't be on the bench every game. it's called rotation and besides, players get injured.

    the move will probably not happen, but saying it won't, like you know what wenger will do, is just plain laughable.

    Why do we want Rosicky when we have Cesc? They play the same role.

    Lets buy a coach who can teach players to head the ball away from setpieces/corners.

    nedved has retired from international football.

    it won't happen is just a logical step.

    blatantly saying signing a player we almost got last summer is defintely not going to happen is what is 'plain laughable'. Anyway, I don't think you foollow Valencia at all, so **** that that debate.

    1.can you read?
    2.i said signing angulo is highly unlikely, seing as he already turned us down once.
    3.i said it was absurd, imo, that angulo would all of a sudden change his just becuase of edu.
    4.you said we won't sign rosicky, period.

    see the difference...? probably not, but run along now. i've wasted enough time on you...

    btw, you fekkin' liar.

    when did i say this?

    GK and CB are priority i hope we
    Get frey from parma (Gk)
    And chivu form roma (Cb)
    Plus CM (if edu left and propoly he will it will be a really big lost his great player and I would love to see him stay at the club)
    I think we should pay a striker spicily if bergkamp retired toress is just a fantasy so get down to earth I don’t think we will get him may be we should try to sign montella his great finisher with great skills, , and he is the leading scorer until now in seria a (he will cost a lot Though )

    I'd like to see us go for Maniche - might be a bit cheaper a year on from Euro 2004.

    Other players who I'd like to see us go for are Maxwell, Mancini, Serginho, van Bommel, Abbiati, Vicente, Wagner Love, SWP, Joaquin (never gonna happen tho), Tudor, van Hooijdonk, Ramos, and Lovejoy.

    If anyone of them lot signed, it'd bring a wee smile to me face - bit like this :eek:

    I really doubt Wenger needs as much as 40 million to get what he wants, experience is the key. A top keeper should be priority along with an experienced midfielder, defender, and striker in that order. Not all of those are necessary but a keeper is a definate yes.

    yeah i agree top quality keeper and maybe a CM if Edu leaves

    Massimo Oddo is pretty good and we have been linked with him quite a bit and i dont think his fee would be unreasonable but im not sure we would need him. Does he play RB and CB or just RB?

    we need a real Central Forward. not a second striker. player like vieri or treze (Juve)
    and I like the idea of buying SWP, but where are we going to put Ljungberg?

    We def. need GK, Abbiati will be a good choice. then get rid Lehmann for good.

    Btw, what happen to Richard Wright? haven't seen him since he joins Everton????

    I guess RB only - can't remember ever seen him in CB position
