Oddo for me
Now, I was watching the friendly between Milan and Barca last night. Commentator said its rumored that Puyol is on his way out... true or not, I dunno. But, it seems we have a good relationship with Barca from previous dealings... Puyol is only about 26... and can play both CB and RB... problem solved if you ask me... but like I said rumors... and its not as if the guy said Puyol was linked to us... but you never know
Puyol ? That would be a miracle if we were to sign him.. i cant see him leaving Barca, not the way they are playing recently.
puyol is one of the best right-backs in the world, if not the most aggressive! doubt we can afford him though...
personally i would prefer a CB signing as we are pretty thin in that area... however, senderos already fits the profile of the type of player i want... young, highly-rated and willing to bide his time... hope wenger can unearth another gem like toure!
moreover, with our performances lately, it's hard for any new guy to get a game! :wink:
i don't think we need someone like Trabelsi, because we have a fine right back who was in the Premiership XI last season as a RB, Trabelsi wouldn't sit on the bench and wait for someone to get tired of injured.
what we need is a young talented Right footed Center back so if lauren is injured he can cover and if Kolo or Sol is injured he can cover aswell. someone who isn't world class yet but has potential so he won't be annoyed being on the bench.
About the Puyol thing, aren't barcelona pissed with arsenal for stealing Cesc right from their trainning academy. so i don't think they'll welcome us with open arms angain if we start sniffing around @ Barca.
If I had to guess... yaa, they're probably not pleased that we snatched a diamond in the rough from them... but they were dragging their feet... but if I had to guess, i'd say they were on good terms with the the Gio loan then sale deal... can't be too much ill feeling there...
anyway guys... I'm not saying that there is any substance to the Puyol bit... i just overheard a commentator talking about a RUMOR, and I had a FLIGHT OF FANCY, because Puyol is a quality player, who can play both RB and CB... and once again.. the guy NEVER said Puyol was LINKED 2 Arsenal.... just said he MIGHT be on his way out...
this should definitely be in the rumors section
I'm not sure if Arsène will sign anyone before the window closes, but if he does then Angulo and Trabelsi seem the most likely candidates.
Exactly. I fear that all our attacking brilliance is going to be undermined this year by a lack of defensive cover. If either Toure or Campbell get a serious injury, we suddenly find ourselves playing Cygan for a long stretch, which could be disastrous. I'm sorry, but nobody is telling me that, after two years at the club, he has persuaded you that he is cut out for this level. He is good on the ball, but makes at least one major screw-up in every game and is about as quick as a tranquilised tortoise.
Maybe Senderos will be ahead of him in the pecking order, but there seems to be no sign of that now.
I can't think of many decent CBs available for a good price, though.
Another cb is essential although it would tough trying to get him settled and integrated into the team as we have now started the season.
I fear we may now have to endure a "dodgy" Cygan for most of the season.
Wenger may pull a suprise out of his hat. He has said that another defender is his target before the end of the month. If he can squeeze in another trade, then you can bet it'll be another talent. We've got forward and midfield stacked with talent, and the back line is nothing to sneeze at either.
remeber the kid kompany........ everyboday was raving about him before, but now he's still in belgium......... also mexes??? isn't his contract with auxerre still in dispute.
maybe the trabelsi thing is a screen for mexes???? okay sorry should be in rumour section
Kompany will sign for Chelsea, and Mexes is at Roma now.
so we're hoping for Trebelsi or some mystery kid?
Or maybe Wolves will sell us back Luzhny...hahahahaha j/k
Massimo Oddo and Miguel Angulo.
Doesn't Oddo have some resemblance with Pires?
The S** is reporting that Arsenal have put a bid of 2.7M in for Angulo of Valencia, What do you think?
Sky Sports have also reported that Arsenal are interested in Sevilles young star Jesus Novas.
let me guess, you've never even seen kompany play?!? kompany is crap; he's physically weak and not that fast. he'd be slaugtered going up against players like big dunc, kevin campbell, shearer and drogba. senderos is a lot better...
Trabelsi had the chance to join us, but he was being an idiot wanting higher wages according to rumours.
So far we are only link to trabelsi,oddo and angulo.who will we sign actually?or perhaps we will not sign a new RB/CB at all. Or Wenger is satisfied with the progress of Senderos and Hoyte?Any news that Wenger will use Senderos or Hoyte this season regularly this season?
