    Other than our impotence and lack of movement and penetration in the final third, I think you're correct.

    I'd love to sign a tough f*cker like Capoue, M'Vila, Yanga-Mbiwa, Strootman, or Wanyama to free up Arteta and give us some real presence and organization in midfield.

    Mbiwa is primarily a CB.

    I like Wanyama, passes better than I first thought too.
  3. Cudareli

    Cudareli Antonio Valencia stan

    Isco, Ba, Adrian, Ben Arfa, Baines and M'Biwa in.

    Gervinho, Chamakh, Squillaci and Santos out.

    Imagine going into a match having no idea who will start in the front 3 positions because there is too much proper quality there to pick from. That's the stuff dream are made of.

    Isco is not happening but Ben Arfa and Adrian are pretty realistic.

    LW: Podolski, Adrian
    RW: Ben Arfa, Zaha/Oxlade
    ST: Giroud, Ba

    decent options to be fair.

    :shock: Worth a punt, surely. He was a beast against us.

    He has a history of raising his game against us.

    This could mean he's a good player, or it could mean he's just taken advantage of how soft we are all over the pitch and looks better than he really is.

    He's a good player and that price he would be a very good addition in a position we're short. I'm suprised he ended up at West Ham, thought he'd go to a club like Everton.

    Huntelaar, Zaha, Strootman, Isco (only if!).

    Joining Wilshere, Arteta, and Cazorla.

    That's the winning combination for the 4th-place Holy Grail and perhaps a trophy in cup competition.

    Just like when Arteta, Benayou, and Per joining with JVP leading the front.

    a realistic wishlist:


    Ramsey (loan)



    Out are all the players who are offering little to nothing to the squad in are a talented defender who can play across the defence and will be available for a decent price, some power in our midfield and two pacey, direct English forwards who can score goals and are Gooners!!!! Theo has been left out of the equation in the hope he signs a new deal.

    Push Cazorla out wide when playing Giroud.
    Buy a strong CM.
    Buy a pacy striker. (eg. Rémy)
    Buy a left back
    Buy Zaha.
    New contract for Walcott.

    Arshavin, Chamakh, Santos and Gervinho.

    ST: Giroud, x
    LW: Podolski, Zaha
    RW: Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain
    AM: Cazorla, Rosicky
    CM: Wilshere, Arteta
    CM: x, Diaby
    LB: x, Gibbs
    CB: Vermaelen Mertesacker Koscielny Djourou
    RB: Sagna, Jenkinson
    GK: Szczesny, Fabianski, Mannone

    What about Hiroshi Kiyotake from Nürnberg? I've never seen him play but he seems to be doing well and might be available for comparatively little money.

    A perfect window.

    £6m - Klaas-Jan Huntelaar
    Loan - Thierry Henry
    £10-15m - Luiz Gustavo/Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa
    £8m - Wilfried Zaha (OPTIONAL)
  13. truth_hurts

    A proven goalscorer who will convert chances
    Some midfield stability
    A club legend as a bench option
    One of Englands most exciting prosects

    Yes I'd be pretty happy with that. New Sagna/Walcott contracts and diaby back and i'd be over the moon!

    I'd take that.

    Huntelaar would want to be starting every match. I also don't think we need a similar striker to Giroud. People are just assuming that he will hit the ground running and start scoring goals. He may also need an adaptation period. There is no guarantee he will score goals. What I would rather see is a more athletic centre forward who links up with the midfield and wingers, offering more energy. Someone who can turn the defence.

    Luiz Gustavo just had groin surgery and is highly regarded by Bayern Munich. He is not available.

    Mbiwa signed a new contract in November, so he is quite happy where he is.

    I'd say Zaha and Henry are the realistic options from that list. Wenger said he wanted to sign two players, hopefully Henry doesn't count as one of the two.

    Ideally we need a left sided winger. I don't think we will let Walcott go in January, but it would be nice to have a replacement for him and for Gervinho. I can't see Wenger buying a midfielder or a striker.

    Willian anyone? I've saw little of him but he looks to potentially have something to solve our dilemma up front.

    Definitely good enough but with the money he gets at Shaktar plus the probability that they will go further in Europe than us don't see why he would leave to come here.

    You think Chelsea would sell us Lukaku?

    Lukaku is not even good enough for West Brom.

    Jovetic, Isco and Gustavo are enough to get this club back on its tracks. Nani would be a bit of a luxury if we could get the rest. It's almost painful how unrealistic this wish list is for our club though. Either way some drastic changes will be needed in January if we want to challenge for any silverware. The premier league title is probably too far gone already.
