    Our need for a top class forward is as great as our need for a midfielder. Looking at United makes me sick when they have three top class attackers in Rooney, Van Persie and Kagawa, with the likes of Hernandez, Valencia and Nani in reserve.

    How Chamakh, Park, and Arshavin are still at the club is beyond me, then there is Walcott and Gervinho. **** me. I'm depressed again.

    Few rumours of Tiote on twitter, what do people think of him? Personally I think his passing, from what I've seen, is no where near the standard we need. He may be able to break up play effectively but picks up way to many cards to become a staple in our team.

    There are a few tenuous links to Affelay out there right now, who apparently has been told he can leave Barcelona.

    add afellay to the above and i think we'd be okay. so that means we need to bring in m'vila, llorente and afellay and send out arshavin, bendy, chamahk and park

    Apparently we are interested in Ibrahim Affelay. Barca told him that he has to go because they have enough depth in their squad and can't offer him a chance at Barca.

    I just post it here because I don't want to make an extra thread because of an article from metro.co.uk

    He is not a player for the Wish List but imo he could be a good squad player here.
    But don't think it will happen as we look for a midfielder and not a winger.

    Edit: Just recognized there is a thread about Affelay. Sorry for this post then.

    I'd rather wait for Frimpong to heal and give him a go then sign Tiote. The guy's too limited to play for us and Newcastle would demand a sum that would smash our transfer record.

    He's started like a beast this year, looks like he's gained a load of muscle, excellent ball carrier, top ball winner, needs a bit of work on his final ball but he'd be a top MF for us now and walk into the line up

    Arteta (DLP)........Dembele (B2B)

    Would love Dembele here. For me he strikes me as the player Diaby would be if he had the football intelligence, a good passer of the ball, great dribbling but a lack of end product.


    Then once Wilshere returns for the number 10 spot (as is written) we could use Cazorla as a wide player.

    Dembele is a very interesting player, i wouldn't complain if we signed him but i'm still unsure exactly how good he is. He'd probably cost a fair bit though.

    That midfield would comfortably be the best in the PL.

    Statements like this are becoming more and more frequent and reek of RAWKism (Although I'm thinking of some posts a couple of weeks ago that claimed RvP + Sahin to our current squad = Best squad in PL when I think of RAWKism). The reality is that it wouldn't with Silva and Yaya in the same midfield at Man ****ty with the remaining vacant spot potentially filled by De Jong/Nasri/Rodwell/Barry etc... To claim it would 'comfortably' be the best is simply not right.

    IMO, byinlarge, the majority of posters on here have/still grossly underrate the two Manchester sides.

    Man Utd weren't 'average' prior to this summer. They aren't mythically carried by Froggie's presence. Players like Ferdinand/Vidic/Carrick/Scholes/Nani/Valencia/Rooney have played to a high level in the last 24 months. The likes of Evra, Smalling, Young, Berbatov and Welbeck are good/very good players in their own right too. They were better than us before this summer and are even more so now.

    Man City - Hart, Kompany, Yaya, Silva, Tevez and Aguero. That's frankly ridiculous. There are several WC players in there. Once more, we've not had a better team than that at any point this year. The number of WC players in our squad in comparison to both of these evidences the gap.

    Sorry to be the doom bringer but it's been bugging me for a while that the view that we're not far off the Manchester clubs remains when we're more than a player or two away. The difference in quality is big.

    Stop talking sense AFC-Phil. That's not the sort of thing we can handle in the last week of the transfer window. :lol:

    Im starting to seriously like Hatem Ben Arfa (as a player). I know he had HUGE ego and attitude problems back in France and he had a bad injury in Newcastle. But none of it seems to slow him down, its quite the opposite - he is emerging as a very strong player in EPL. I saw alot of Newcastle matches at the end of last season and i have seen first two from this year and ... im very impressed by his game. He would be the direct player and goal getter we all want in this window.

    Newcastle is a selling club in essence. Wonder how much it would take to get him? Does he still have beef with Diaby (the infamous video of their fight in a hotal room)? Has Wenger decided to avoid trouble-makers (seemingly going cold on M'Vila)? Is he still a trouble maker or has he calmed down a little?

    AFC-Camden's saying that Wenger's after a player he didn't think was going to be available. On this thinnest of evidence, I've decided to believe that he's going after M'Biwa. Would be a genuine improvement to our squad, given his defensive versatility.

    He only plays across the back4(??) & would not oust either TV or Kos,
    unless AW was going to move TV to DMC / B2B CM.
    Even then he does nothing to address AW's comments re Sunderland that we lacked creativity in the forward line.

    EDIT: Don't get me wrong he'd be a great addition, but does not directly address any issue from last w/end or Song's departure.

    I'd rather think along the lines of this new info NOt being associated to the earlier 20m player reports,
    and that we've been thrown a bone re someone like Martinez, Fellaini etc.

    For that matter has Sahin actually officially moved to LFC?

    Yeah, unfortunately.

    Ah, crap, I think I was confusing him with Capoue and thinking he played as a DM, with back 4 versatility.

    I give up on keeping track of the players we've been linked to that I've never actually seen play (not counting YouTube). Essentially, I want some defensive reinforcement in the sense of a decent DM and don't think we're in for M'Vila seriously.

    Javi Martinez is pure wishlist stuff, unfortunately.
