Bergkamp one of the favourites to become the new Swansea manager.
Yesterday was Eboue's birthday and I forgot about it.
I'm SO ashamed...
Any truth in this?

Would love to see Bergkamp move into management with a long term view to coming back to us if he does well. But then I thought the same of Tony Adams and that didn't work out quite so well sadly.
Would be awesome for him to get a gig with our youth/ reserve teams as he has experience in that department for Ajax and he wouldn't have to fly.
That being said, he seems settled in the Netherlands for the time being. He has always been a family man.
Would Wenger resign Nasri if he's available for 20m? He's still a big fan.
I would bloody well hope not.
I'd rather any of Walcott/Podolski/Chamberlain/Gervinho get minutes before that rat.
Getting rid of Nasri was a silver lining on a dark summer.
Wouldnt mind him if back if he wasnt being a **** after he left us.

there's no way back for him tbh.. Can't see him being too keen on coming back, nor will the fans want him back.
**** this little rat.
Im pretty sure a section of the squad hate his guts such as people like frimpong. Wilshere and other people have publicly said they want to prove nasri wrong. So i think if he came back there would be alot of friction in the squad. So no i think there is no chance he would come back
the only way nasri would come back, and I would take him back (and I've been a big fan of his for years) would be if he came back quietly for a cheap price, apologized publicly, then kept his head down, his mouth shut, and played his game at the highest level possible every week.
He'd also have to accept that even the most minor slip up and everyone would be on his back.
I like to think that in general, Arsenal fans are quite classy, and wouldn't be too harsh or brutal on him. The general rule is simple: give your all in our jersey, and you will be liked.
Ibra, who else.
There are good replacements for Nasri. The problem is Wenger and the board didn't try hard enough to get one last summer. Wenger mostly builds his team with long term plan. If the club re-signed him, there is no assurance that Nasri wouldn't seek his way out again to another rich club (PSG, another Russian oligarch's club) for a bigger contract.
Do not want, haven't missed him at all tbh.
Excellent at pissing about, epithome of the Fabregas failure era. Prefer me some directness instead, Podolski and Ox ftw.
Cesc is always welcome though
Ibra, Cesc, Götze, win the league.
Former Arsenal star Alan Ball also played for Southampton, and they took him back after he'd managed Portsmouth. And then Portsmouth took him back after that. And they hate each other's guts.
And, of course, Portsmouth took Harry Redknapp back after he abandoned them for Southampton. (In fact, and this is embarrassing, not yet knowing about his facial nerve damage from the car crash at the 1990 World Cup, I originally thought that's what was meant by "He's got a twitch": I thought it referred to his unwillingness to stay in one job for too long: He "had ants in his pants." That he was an English version of basketball coach Larry Brown.)
But would I take Nasri back? Let's just say it would take a massive amount of humility and expressed desire to make amends.
So, with what I know about his personality and his character, the answer is, "Not a chance."
Am I missing something regarding Nasri here?
He didn't moan in public. He didn't talk about other clubs. He didn't feign injury. He behaved himself, made himself available and was probably even our best player in his last game (at home to Liverpool). He didn't force his way out of the club (the club could have chosen to pay him more, they didn't, they sold him, c'est la vie).
He didn't slag off the club until AFTER the fans started abusing him so he's well within his rights to ram the message down our throats.
I think the simple answer is that we have some very naturally bitter and angry fans at this club (people are already slagging off RVP :roll: ). It's not as if he did an Ashley Cole.
If anything the club should offer an apology to Nasri on behalf of the supporters so we can all move on (unless of course I'm missing something).
well, the first thing he said when he was tranfered was "i left Arsenal to win trophies".. that's about the time people started bashing him..
club issue an apology to Nasri on behalf of the fans? are you kidding me with that?
I think winning the EPL counts as a trophy, doesn't it?
He's perfectly within his rights to say he left for City for trophies. Until Arsenal win some silverware, we can't say anything about it.
