    I also think its a crazy idea letting patrick Vieira go because paddy at his best , can be the best midfielder in the world against any midfielder you know. His play sort of matches the Zidane style play were both his legs right or left are very good on the ball and his technical ability is just fantastic. My verdict is i dont wanna see this guy leave i think he still have a lot from him, i still wanna see a lot from the ''collosus'' Partrick Vieira.

    Wow what a "reliable" source.

    As a DCM he won't score 20 a season. The guy's a far better striker than he was a midfielder, and although he can perhaps be called upon to fill in there in times of crisis, if we're spending 12-15 million on the guy he'll be bought in as a striker primarily.

    Remember that last summer, Arsène came out and said that he had 2 or 3 'Plan B's' in case Vieira had gone. I suspect that Essien may have been one, but now that seems out of the question. that leaves 2, who presumably would still be available. I hope Mascherano may be one of them.

    Mascherano's just signed for Corinthians.

    that page says nothing about Ballack.

    Is that confirmed? I thought there was talk that the Chavs had signed a pre-contract? Wonder who the others may be from the plan B?

    Ignore that muppet. He pollutes AWIMB every 5 minutes with nonsensical posts like that.

    Corinthians are involved with MSI, who are allegedly part run by Roman Abramovic. So chances are, Chelsea have first option on him now.

    As for plan B, sod knows.

    Dammit. Seem to be very strong stories going around about this this morning. I genuinely can't work out how I feel about it in football terms, just know that I am gutted that it seems we'll never sing his song again!

    This is the dumbest thing ever.

    Gerrard touted at 30 million, beckham went for 25 even ****ing veron went for 30

    Vieira the best CM in the ****in world 10 million

    what the ****. im more pissed off at the 10 million then i am at vieira goin but combine both and its a ****in kick in the teeth while we go signing people like hleb for the same ****in price. I dont care if he ends up being world class. AT this time Hleb and Vieira are not of equal value

    the problem is finding a replacement, no Essien, Diarra just signed a new deal, Jenas has the talent but is still far from utilising it fully, Ballack will be extremely tough to get. not saying that Wenger doesnt have a plan here because im sure he does, but this seems like an awfully big gamlbe were taking. especially with the midfield short, as we havent even properly replaced Edu yet(Hleb is not that replecement).

    How old is Gerrard?

    How old was Beckham?

    What had Gerrard achieved in the season before he was rumoured to be leaving?

    How much is David Beckham worth to a club in terms of revenue?

    Was Vieira the best CM in the world last season?

    Answer those questions and the dynamic of this transfer will become a little more clear...

    That is entirely subjective. He wasn't close to being that last season, and that is all that matters.

    Hleb is also approaching his prime, while i think Vieira is undoubtedly falling off his peak. Anyway i've read that the fee is £15M.

    Who knows what the truth is.

    I really cant believe this will go through

    no way will a player like vieira go for that little

    25 million last year what the **** now 10 million

    has his body really ****ed up that much in 12 months?

    seriously guys, the BS about him staying or going has become the biggest pain the arse for the past couple of seasons, and everytime we have to wait till the last ****in minute to confirm that he's staying!!.....and when he starts playing the first game, all i can hear is vieira oh oh horseshit.....he doesnt deserve it most of the time....people must respect players like henry more than vieira....

    and like so many others have explained, i dont think he's irreplaceable, after his form for much of last season....

    i say flog him for whatever above 12mill....because it's going to be less than half of that come january or next summer!

    Not believing yet - I'll wait till I see the picture before I really believe, but I guess it really is happening this time. Oh well.

    I think if people listen to the gaffa more you will get your answers.

    Pires and Vieira are not leaving.

    Baptista is signing for us and we are picking up another player....i just hope this second player is a GK.

    I have a question though: What was the name of the chap we were supposed to have signed from Roma (young kid - 18 or 19 y.o.) and we loaned him to a Sweedish club? From memory, we are getting him for nothing as he left Roma before becoming a professional....i cannot remember the name but if you know what I'm talking about can you update me as to whether this guy is joining our side....he was a CM from memory.

    thanks if you can help.

    Vieira must NOT be sold BECAUSE he will command a transfer fee. He must NOT be sold BECAUSE his transfer fee will be lower next summer. He will ONLY be sold IF Wenger thinks Vieira's departure can benefit the football team as a whole more than him staying (unless of course he demanded to leave, which this time doesn't seem to have happened).
