    I see an article speaking of possibly two more signings for Wenger, most probably in the region of goal keeper and defender.

    My wish, one more signing on top of that in midfield, either a genuine wide player (Cole) or defensive cover for Song.

    you are describing a forward- these are the traits of a forwqrd who are much more about power than stamina. i think its a fair assessment of diaby's game

    Ha! I'd like him here, he'd be a huge improvement on our midfield but he wouldn't make Almunia a goalkeeper.

    Haha true.

    I just think having a defensively solid midfield would do wonders. It may also improve our attack as it'd mean cesc arshavin and co have a platform to go spastic on. It may mean they'll see the ball more often and we'd again have more emphasis on counter attacks

    Nope. He is not that significant. We desperately need some calmer heads who leads by example at times, but this guy is worse than some of our kids here. Immature and Brainless at its best

    He did start off his career as an attacker, if I'm not mistaken. It's becoming increasingly hard to see him develop the necessary stamina for a midfield role, especially given the aforementioned traits.

    If we got Honda, where would he play?

    Milan apparently bidded 7 million for him and were immediately rebuffed. We missed the boat on this one. He only left VVV 6 months ago for 5 million.

    Outlaw. Diaby has averaged about 20 games a season for us in the last five years. Last season was probably his first real one. Regular match time is a huge factor stamina-wise especially for CM position and a guy his size. Diaby has flaws but I don't see how you can write off his fitness long term given lack of run in the team and that stamina is one of the most straight forward element he can improve on in training.

    I haven't written him off, far from it. I'm just concerned that at 24 years old, it might be too late to develop and alter a game which is evidently more suited towards an offensive position. He's just not a natural CM. I just hope that Song and Cesc can continue to mask his deficiencies, whilst Diaby develops the necessary skills.

    Haha, Dules.

    just that? how about a proper winger, a proper gk, a non-injured striker and a proper back four?

    Was referring to the midfield really, but yep. Sorting the midfield out would do wonders

    Given or Hart would do just fine, thanks.

    Isn't the promise of Hart starting the season directly linked to the fact that Given will still be injured?
