  1. Re: Sebastien Frey

    Even that link is just adding two and two together. There is nothing yet that conclusively states that we are in for Frey.
     
  2. Re: Sebastien Frey

    Frey would actually be a step up. Really hoping we get him.

    The first rumors about him this summer was involving Aston Villa. Then they just dissipated.

    Maybe he's still going to Villa, and we're getting the highly PL-experienced Friedl?

    Doubt it.

    I don't usually use this phrase but Friedel really was a missed opportunity. Would have been an excellent signing when Villa got him.

    Would be perfect if he came here, but I can't help thinking he's going somewhere else.

    No links evening mentioning us being linked with an offer for him. This is just getting tedious and desperate.

    Is it that difficult to send a few emails and take a couple of phone calls without being caught?

    Re: Sebastien Frey

    My thoughts are that Fiorentina have a deal in the works with another club for Frey right now. Much like our deal for Koscielny was contingent upon them signing and officially announcing his replacement - Bruno Ecuele Manga.

    They wouldn't sign Boruc just in case they lose Frey. They most likely wanted to sign Boruc first before finalizing negotiations for Frey, so that they have a quality replacement already lined up.

    Think about it: Which top club needs a goalkeeper? Which club favors French players? Which club prefers to go about all of their negotiations in secrecy for the good of both clubs and the player?

    It could be Arsenal. It could also be United, or a team like Valencia.

    Just speculating here. :)

    Re: Sebastien Frey

    I agree, this would be the best deal done int he transfer window. They are not signing a Polish international to warm the bench. Boruc is a great keeper and was idolised at Parkhead. He wont be going there to be number 2.
    Frey would be Arsenal to the core. A bit mad, which helps and full of experience. It would be a big way for him to get back into the International scene also.

    Re: Sebastien Frey

    Fiorentina deny that Frey is for sale:

    <a class="postlink" href="http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=808623&sec=transfers&cc=5739" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story ... rs&cc=5739</a>

    Bit odd, really...

    If they contact the player first, its tapping up. I doubt anyone let alone us would do that. And if the club has be een contacted we would have heard some statement from the club to drive up his price.

    Or from his agent.

    Re: Sebastien Frey

    a load of sh*t TBH.. no way they are going to sign a keeper like Boruc (who would be a starter in many teams) if they were planning on keeping Frey.. dont think Boruc would transfer to a team knowing he would be second fiddle

    Re: Sebastien Frey

    we need a keeper, Frey is a keeper that could be available.. of course they are linking us to him..

    Re: Sebastien Frey

    Yes there is a very good reason as the top clubs i.e. us, united and Liverpool have been blessed with the likes of Dudek, Jens and Van Der Saar whilst Given was at a top 4 club Newcastle. Chelsea decided on Cech but I am pretty confident if they failed in getting him Given wouldn't have been too far down the list.

    When Man City wanted to join the elite 4 they brought you guessed it - Shay Given! Givens quality infact one of the best shotstoppers i've ever seen and the 3rd best premiership keeper ever for me behind Schmiecal and Seaman. Frey is a similar style of keeper but if we are going for a shotstopper I would much prefer Akinfeev.

    Frey would be a good signing though.

    Re: Sebastien Frey

    You should get yourself over to the Schwarzer forum - seems I'm the only guy over there that wants Frey over Schwarzer - madness!
     
  19. Re: Sebastien Frey

    Stop overreacting due to people's opinions.

    Nobody and I mean nobody wants Schwarzer over Frey. Each and every person writing something positive about Schwarzer over there would happily take Frey instead.

    It's just that there has not been a single quote or credible link that suggests we might be looking to sign him. Whereas our interest in Schwarzer is well established and according to some unsubstantiated sources, it is as good as a done deal.

    All that some people are pointing out over there is that Schwarzer might not exactly be the disaster that Almunia was and will be, if we sign no other goalkeeper.

    And just as you find anybody choosing Schwarzer over Frey ridiculous(nobody has done it, actually), a few others think that claims of Schwarzer not being an improvement over Almunia, after last season, are off the mark.
