    Can't agree with that. Before his meltdown at St. Andrews, he was captain of a team that was ahead of an excellent United team for months. He formed a great partnership with Kolo (and Senderos for a few games) before that Birmingham game. I also remember people praising his captaincy before then as well. Gallas was a much better player than the ones I listed too.

    £9,000 a minute. We could have loaned someone else more useful to the cause.

    Bischoff, Stepanovs and Park candidates. Perez and Squillaci possibles.

    Don't disagree with that at all. They had a chance to get a pure winger like Carrassco at the start of January but wasted all their time haggling over the Suarez fee, by the time they went back to the former it was too late.

    Severely damaged fan relations in the community and was a dressing room cancer that had previous at Chelsea when they were utterly dominant.

    Wenger should’ve steered clear after he threatened to score an own goal if he didn’t get played at CB.

    @Mo Britain

    Wages per minute is too simplistic a metric. We paid Perez a wage for two years on top of the transfer fee during which time he contributed hardly anything.

    Suarez will be off the books for good in the summer after only a few months.

    Surprised you'd believe those scumbags at Chelsea. He explained what happened when left:

    He was probably the reason we sold Kolo at his peak, f*cked us with his contract demands then signed for Sp**s straight after us.

    Also I have my own personal reasons for disliking him.

    Kolo was past it when left anyway.
    Go on...

    Arsenal didn't buy him. They took him on loan. It's not like they passed up other players on loan for Denis Suarez. He was available. Others weren't -- at least under the terms of an option to buy rather than an obligation. It makes no sense to blame Denis Suarez for the inability to bring in others. Arsenal clearly tried and failed to do so.

    He was barely here before he was injured and wasn't yet match fit since he hadn't been playing regularly for Barcelona. Not sure how you could have expected him to come in and hit the ground running under the circumstances. What happened just happened.

    You seem to be trying to cook up a conspiracy theory where none is necessary. I don't see anything strange at all about the transfer. He was a player who had a lot of success under Emery before. He had some measure of success at Barcelona under Enrique, but the current manager didn't rate him. He was available on Arsenal's terms. He got hurt just a few weeks after he got here. Honestly, there's nothing to see here.

    Not sure about that Guardian link, this is a bit strange:
    On one occasion, in December 2008, Gallas is said to have torn into his younger team-mate after a scoreless draw at Aston Villa, with Touré apparently disappointed that Arsène Wenger did not defend him.

    There was no scoreless draw at Villa in 2008...

    Toure comes across as almost "too nice" in that article. :lol:

    But yeah, Gallas was an absolute clown and poor excuse for leader when the going got tough. We didn't lose to league at Birmingham, we lost it because of our reaction to it in the weeks following which wasn't helped by his meltdown.

    Wonder why we didn't look at loaning Tielemans.

    Elneny signing was definitely nowhere near worst . He actually improved our midfield visibly that season believe it or not and he scored against Barca.

    For sheer head scratchiness, it has to be Silvestre.

    I did justify it at the time, but in hindsight, it was a joke.

    I just saw on the Premier League show on TV that Suarez is costing us 100,000 / min of play.

    Could have brought Pascal Cygan back from retirement. He's an invincible, after all.
