Will assume that this is bullcrap.
I think Barcelona wants to loan coutinho to us. I get the feeling We wouldn't mind having him if the financial circumstances are right. Barcelona pushing this imo
Everytime @American_Gooner destroys another ITK
Coutinho is in Miami. I think its BS.
Dont know why people bring up our attacking midfielders number wise when everybody can agree they are not good enough or constant enough like Özil, Mikhi or Iwobi. If you want to win things you upgrade, plus Coutinho can play LW . Also Kia hopefully helps with parking some of them in China. Win-win
A lot of goals in the side to not hit teams by 4 or 5 imo. I can’t see us starting the season badly despite the sh*te defence.
Come on mate.
We're not in a position to refuse such as a signing which has such upside.
There are 2 possible situations:
- First, he fails at Arsenal, it doesn't work out and he's a flop. Worst case scenario he goes back to barça and the only ressources we've lost are his wages for a year + a loan fee.
- If he does find his level from his old liverpool day (it was just 2 years ago), then we might have added one of the best offensive player in the league. For "cheap".
Best case scenario, it works out great, we get top 4 easily, and we include a purchase option and he stays after this year.
We would have a front 3 of Coutinho Laca Pepe for the next few years, if we assume Auba will leave soon (maybe next summer or the one after that), we would be set for years.
Getting one of the best offensive player in the league is worth the risk of paying a big loan fee + his wages for a year.
If it was a straight buy for a huge fee, I would have said otherwise, the deal would have been too risky.
But it's only a loan deal. We don't have much to lose, especially when it seems we're still after a CB regardless of coutinho's situation
I would rather have Coutinho in the squad, than playing Mkhi Iwobi Özil (if he doesn't get his **** together) any significant minutes in the league.
So should you.
Check my account it's a madness.
You forgot the sauce.
We have one fullback incable of playing CB and our best CB not in there. That team will get destroyed.
If you can't defend just score ****loads of goals instead?
So was Pepe before he flew to London for his medical. Makes you think.
Where do you think Raul gets his gear from?
Latest pictures from Barca were 12 hours ago I guess.
Teams will be scared to attack us. One ball over the top and Pepe or Auba will be in.
What happens to Nelson , Saka and Iwobi , it must Mkhi is getting the shove .
