You'll care when we become a mid table club after he goes. Kidding yourself
Its hard to get worked up when its 3rd/4th vs 6th/7th.
Who cares? The Champions League gives the owners money & the players prestige... Personally quite happy with free midweeks & not getting the club embarrassed every February.
Yeah, suppose it's farewell, not really disappointed in him leaving, more frustrated at the rot that has set in at this club.
With that in mind, this was always going to happen.
He is pretty much gone really. Just hope its to a non English club, please.
I know we'll struggle to replace Alexis but he's not the biggest player we've lost. His contract issues are becoming a side show to problems throughout the squad. Even if we keep him, we need to spend a lot of money on the right players during consecutive summer windows to move upwards. Özil and Alexis on their own won't make a difference to us as shown by the league table. We have largely replaced Henry's goals (but not his genius) but Vieira was a bigger player than many realised in so many intangible ways. Just pointing out facts not trying to grate you.
I doubt anyone is actually attached to Alexis. He is very much like Tevez to me. He will move club with no ill feeling. He is an individual on the pitch and off it. When he goes it will be a hole similar to RVP. It depends whether we fill it with mediocre talent or someone potentially better.
Personally, he should leave because this contract soap opera is just harming the entire squad.
As Mrs Bergkamp stated, we lost better players than him and club survived. When the player thinks he is bigger than club, I would do SAF on him
Where are this coming from?
Where do you get the feeling he thinks his bigger than the club? Because he gets frustrated? Could put most of the Arsenal legends in his place and see a similar reaction.
Barca's bench against Real Madrid when Wenger's in charge
When he came on you could see him shouting at the team and dragging them forward. His mentality is what everyone of our players should have.
Just don't sell to another English club and I'm fine with him leaving. Same goes for Özil.
Hope we can fetch a good fee for him, in the region of 60-70M, but I'm afraid it will be more like 30-40M. Which is hardly enough to get even half a replacement.
Wenger and Gazidis costing the club a good £30m at least by leaving it so late to get him signed up.
Not sure what's worse, selling players on the cheap, buying players for more than they're worth or giving charity contracts out willy nilly, Wenger is world class at all three.
We're going to end up with a choice between Man City and Chelsea offering £50m or Juventus offering £15m over the next 20 years on the condition they win 10 European Cups.
Don't think people realise the full reality of him leaving. He's the only player with anything close to the right attitude. Hunger and a burning desire to won. How often do we sign players like that? If Wenger goes, I think he'll wait and see what happens after. We ****ing need him. No player is bigger then the club but when most of your squad are such pussies, he is the one you bend over for.
The mistake was giving Alexis only a four-year contract when we signed him. Then again, he maybe insisted on it, so he could move on if things weren't going great.
True. Personally looking at it from footballing perspective no player is actually irreplaceable even during the current transfer market situation. However, the impact of Alexis on the team through his attitude and courage to go with his ability is huge. We are back to RVP less Arsenal and have to rebuild all over again to be competitive at least.
If they throw in a Twix, that is a very tempting offer to be fair.
Or a loan of one of their refs.
