    They're putting 2 and 2 together, the club wanted him in January and his agent is offering him to English clubs so there's an easy link.

    She's very good. And of course in this case a duet with the legendary Ray Charles (he did the song in 1967).

    But hey, I'm a bit of a hippie myself (the original 1960s/70s kind). :D

    Same. Now. Definitely preferred Perisic in January, but if we're trying to build a dynamic, young team - our main signing can not be Perisic.

    Would be a Champions League club right now if we hadn’t been so cheap with this guy in January.

    :D Ray Charles...haven't heard a lot of him to be honest, but like the popular tunes. Still, legendary singer.

    who would you pick out of Perisic or Carrasco?

    I'll go for Perisic as he has been in Europe. But Carrasco probably is the safer bet for resale.

    Every link to Perisic is just speculation based on the fact that the club wanted him in January. There's never anything new in these articles.

    I would have taken Perisic in January because he made perfect sense as a veteran who might have helped drag Arsenal into the top 4. But now I'd go with Carrasco. He's cheaper, younger and basically the same player (earlier in the thread I linked something I found that overlaid the analytic profile of the two players over their past four seasons in Europe -- leaving out China for Carrasco -- and they were virtually identical).

    At 25, Carrasco is just entering his prime and has a chance to get a lot better. At 30, Perisic is beginning what is likely to be the back side of his career. Chances are his play will gradually diminish over the next couple of seasons. So give me the guy with upside.

    (By the way, did you see the biopic where Jamie Foxx won the Oscar for playing Ray Charles? Great performance.)

    Yeah, just hope it doesn't end up like Tevez.

    I didn't but love Jamie Foxx. Will check it out. Thank you for the recommendation
