I guess being the Argentine No. 1 was too much for him. If he wasn't willing to sign on and battle it out, I guess this is the best result. Just don't spunk half of the fee on a ****ter Ospina please. We've let go of the better keeper. Alas.

So you want to do the same or...?
I'm saying a team in our position can not afford to keep two top keepers on the books when we need need funds to strengthen other areas of the pitch. Emi leaving is not an Armageddon scenario like AM wants you to believe.

It’s still 10M profit? That’s a lot of money you know?!

Think GDeep started this and now everybody’s acting like an extra 10M wouldn’t go a long way!

And also outgoing transfers are usually amortised. It'll be £20 million in on the books this year and if we spend £10 million on Raya we could pay half of that next year.

Cost them a few goals last season.

Watching him last season, I saw that Almunia vibe. He looked half decent because he had Vvd and Gomez in front of him
Also was big in their early run in when Alisson went down. He did a job and then some. Not saying he's a top keeper by any means but he's a solid #2 and better than Raya, Puffin and any other mentioned options we're looking at.

Sad, but someone had to take a bullet.

Best of luck, lad.

How did he "take a bullet"? :lol: He didn't extend in any way, demanded promises of starting and so forced the club to sell him.

Good luck to him, I understand him, but "took a bullet" ffs. :rofl:

I meant it in "someone had to be sold". I wanted him to stay, doesn't take a genius to figure that one out?

I also want AMN to stay, but I can see why he could be sold...

Good deal for everyone involved. Emi gets a huge pay bump and a PL starting gig and we get a pretty decent fee for someone who's started for us a dozen times in the league.

Good as long as the replacement costs a fraction of what we got for him.

I know you meant it.

Doesn't take a genius to realize you don't need to make him paint him a saint who sacrificed himself for the club.

There were rumours that Arsenal tried to extend him and he chose not to. I think they would rather have kept him at least for a year.

Jeez, @drippin the ostrich at it again.

Pusipusi. <3

Martinez taking a bullet is comedy gold, had a great laugh.

Yeah he should extend knowing he won't play any game because Arteta doesn't want to rotate keeper even for cup games
