Haha mate who is twisting and turning?
You have there on that page people saying 20-25m was a very poor fee. That summer / autumn was all like that, people claiming that we were getting fleeced for not getting 20m. When in reality we should've been happy to get 10m at that point.
Anyways, it's all there in that thread, I understand your desire to make it look better than it was, though. As is always done with all the things the majority of the forum looks really bad with in retrospect (meltdowns about Arteta last summer after three games, Thomas Partey's position and playing style, Saliba ordeal, AMN to Wolves, Willock, Buendía over Ødegaard and Ødegaard in general at many points, Ramsdale, Ben White, Martinelli being wasted under Arteta, our summer window being **** last summer and Edu being clueless, the list goes on and on...).
How would 10m have been an absolute joke? It's about 10m more than what we're looking at right now, and more importantly, it was two years ago and it would've allowed us to re-invest that money. Of course I don't know that, because it's nonsense. 10m would've been a fine fee and looking back two years later that's even clearer.10m would've been an absolute joke, but I know you know that.
I understand your desire to get to say you "told you so", though. It's one he'll of a drug.
It's not about 'told you so', it's about genuinely marvelling at how little accuracy and how little predictive power the majority's predictions and analysis have here (and how incommensurate that is with the confidence / arrogance with which such predictions and analysis are offered, and differing opinions treated), and reflecting upon that and reminding myself to not let myself be affected in the least by the overwhelming opinion here.You look back in time and are reminded that the consensus on this forum is dead wrong an overwhelming majority of the time, and it is a good reminder to yourself to not let the consensus thinking here influence you whatsoever, and to not take but a few posters who separate themselves from that group seriously.
If Torreira leaves before is contract is up, we're paying him off or at absolute best getting a contract termination. I've accepted that.
We won't get 1p for him.
They are gonna be a mid/bottom table team with or without Torreira, and without ambition, I can't understand you insisting on them to buy the player, especially when he is a hard sell once he starts cryingI'd be seriously disappointed if we don't get 10m for one of most inform midfielders in Serie a last season. I mean wtf is this.
All thanks to Fiorentina these c**ts. Look at them even free signing they being cheap with it they can't sign this Austrian midfielder they chasing ffs
We’ll be lucky to get £5m for this lad, need to just cut our losses.Sin lugar en Arsenal, el volante busca equipo aunque no será tarea sencilla porque el club Gunner no quiere cederlo.www.elpais.com.uy
Lucas Torreira “My desire to stay at Arsenal? No. From the beginning they told me that I had no place, so my desire is not to stay either. Any team that want me has to pay my value of approximately 15m”
At least he honest it's clear he has no place here since 2020 he don't like PL or England in general i can't believe people asking why we not keeping.
I'm just dissapointed after the season he had there little interest ffs.
No way I'd take Torreira over elneny. Elneny had the same situation last season where he was not needed by Mikel. But he worked his way through it. This guy has been a cry baby ever since he joined us. Get rid asap.
Elneny is the most professional player we’ve had in a very long time. A trait few values because it’s not always visible. Top top man and ambassador for my club, the likes of torreira and Özil are no ambassadors in my book
