Van Bommel has been awful this season. I'd rather stick with Diaby than buying the Dutchman.
eh? Van Bommel has been excellent this season....and he's going for free.
Forlan is also leaving At. Madrid, with Besiktas being his most likely destination. Sign him up!
Forlan and Van Bommel would be two great signings. They'd be cheap as well so it would be possible to bring in two more players along with these two and balance out all the problems with the squad in one market.
I'm going to sound like Wenger for a moment, but it's true:
A free player is all well and good, but for every player we sign (even if he's free), we have to balance the wages, and make sure that our talented young players (Coquelin, Vela, Bendnter, etc) won't get crowded out.
That said, I agree that Forlan and Van Bommel would be good signings.
I never used to be a great admirer of Samba, but having watched him recently, he really impressed me. He seems to be exactly the type of centre back we need. The only possible problem I can think of is that he isn't the fastest, so he might struggle with our high line. Then again, if his positioning is good enough, that shouldn't be a problem at all.
Samba + L.Diarra + Benzema + Arshavin replacement = Arsenal premier league champions 2011/2012. Even if we sold Cesc. NOt that difficult. All are allegededly available; maybe Diarra would reckon he's better than us but we could at least try. Even if Arsène replaced Arshavin with a project like Hazard or oXlade chamerlain (who scored a classy, classy goal this weekend), signing Benzema as well would make up for it.
Fabregas to stay, Benzema to sign.
4-4-2 with Van Persie and Benzema uptop
WIDE FORWARD(someone direct, first thought is to go forward with the ball, goal threat)....Suarez would have been a good option.
CENTRE MID(at least as good if not better than Song)
CENTRE BACK(someone with PL experience IMO, wouldnt be hard to improve on Koscielny tbf).....Gary Cahill
Areas that could also be improved easily:
Out: Almunia £1m, Squillaci £2m, Denilson £4m, Diaby £8m, Arshavin £10m, Bendtner £10m, Rosicky £5m, Vela £5m (Total=£45m)
In Neymar/A Sanchez £25m, Parker £8m, Howedes £10m, Kevin Großkreutz £10m, K Gamiero £8m( Total = £61m)
Apparently, Chelsea have all but clinched the signature of Neymar.
Neymar will flop here...
I'd rather he flopped at Chelsea 8))
I meant in the PL
Assuming Cesc stays
--- Sagna --- Subotic - Vermaelen -- Baines ---
----------- Wilshere -------- Cesc ------------
------- Nasri ------- Goetze -------- Hazard --
------------------- RvP -----------------------
I'd rather Hummels than Subotic, and that midfield would get eaten alive by most teams in the PL, but I like those players.
our current midfield gets eaten alive too.
we're never going to play with two holding midfielders. both goetze and hazard are capable of beating their man. both are very creative players.
when cesc gets hurt (which will happen), ramsey comes in, and he and wilshere can sit back a bit more and just collect the ball and distribute to the front 4.
