    Been lurking around and watched so many wishlist... this one is the closest. The reality part, :lol:

    Anyway in my first FM13 window at Arsenal... I Bought:
    Mbiwa 13M (50k/week + 10k per appearance)
    Luiz Gustavo 11M (65k/week + 13k per appearance)
    Jovetic 17M (100k/week + 15k per appearance)
    Adryan 875k
    Walcott recontracts (70k/week + 8k per appearance)(probably his demands in real life is higher, can always give him a 15k per appearance if he still wish to stay that is.)

    Only managed to get rid of:
    Djourou(5m ajax)
    Gervinho(12.5m porto) lol.
    Arshavin(5m juve)
    Chamakh(loan+5.5m option, lisbon)
    Santos (loan+3.4m option, lisbon)

    and loan/sell some youngsters... Squid didn't want to leave when I accepted Southampton 850k bid. Diaby, noone will pay for injury proness.

    I realised I got rid a lot of deadweight on wages and free up transfer fee and wage budget. Not forgetting I haven't deal with a bunch of others, and some already loaned out like Park, Denilson, W.Silva, J.Campbell, Bendtner etc.

    Blimey, that's almost an entire squad! Damn you board, damn you for forcing all these duds on poor old Arsène!

    Do you disagree with the that list though? We've still got some good players and there is a English core in the current Arsenal.

    Szczęsny, Gibbs, Verm, Per, Kos, Jenk, Sagna, Arteta, Wilshere, Coquelin, Ramsey, Santi, Rosicky, Theo, Chamberlain, Podolski, Giroud.

    I don't know anything about contract law, but surely there is some solution.

    For instance, if Squillaci is earning 40k here a week here, and has 2 years left on his contract (=£4m in earnings) could we agree to pay half of fee up front (£2m), with another team then able to take them on straight away? That means that even if he drops his wage to 25k at the new club, he'll make £4.4m in the period he'd have earned £4m in otherwise.

    This way, the player could potentially earn more, we could pay less in wages, we're rid of the player and a weaker team gets use of a solid defender who just happens to not be good enough for us.

    Now that we supposedly have money to spend in January:

    James Rodriguez or Stevan Jovetic
    Luiz Gustavo or Lars Bender
    Edison Cavani

    These are realistic targets and yet none of them will ever happen!

    @Finngooner james rodriguez and cavani i think its hard to get them porto will surly ask 30m for rodriguez cuz he is great talent and napoli will ask 30-40m for cavani cuz he is world class striker.

    There are maybe 10 players in the world who are less realistic targets than Cavani..

    Why? He is on 40k/week or something so we could easily triple his wages. He has indicated that he would like to play in England at some point and surely City and ManU won't go for him as they are stacked with forwards and with Chelsea going after Falcao, we could have a shot. Not gonna happen, though, but I don't see Cavani as an impossible target. If we can afford to pay Diaby 60k/week for Aquajogging, we can pay Cavani double for playing football.

    Cavani would cost more than triple our transfer record. That's never ever going to happen this January or any time soon.

    Even if we can/are willing to pay him, (which is unlikely) he will never come to us. The chances of winning trophies with Arsenal are as small if not smaller than at Napoli. I wouldn't be surprised if he goes to Real Madrid, they need a world class CF.

    When Cavani eventually leaves Napoli, it'll be for an astronomical fee, I'm talking 40-50m. We wont ever pay anything remotely close to that for anyone, unfortunately.

    Media has it that AC Milan are looking to raise funds quickly. The one player I woud take off them in a heartbeat is stefan el shaarawy.

    Clearing out the dead wood would be better than any one off £30 mil signing.

    Every club has em but Arsenal is beyond a joke in that regard.

    Sure, sounds good even. Loans can achieve the same thing too. Just didn't agree (or think possible) about tearing up contracts early.

    I can deal with this one.

    If we wanted Squillaci to leave before his contract expired, we could either release him and pay out the remainder of his deal (£4m as you have listed above) or we could agree to terminate the contract for a fee, basically a full and final payment of all of our obligations under his existing contract. We could agree a deal for lets say £2m and for that amount he walks away from the club and could sign with somebody tomorrow as he would effectively become a free agent.

    The problem is, at the moment, Squillaci doesn't have to play week in week out, doesn't have to train hard, doesn't have to worry about a starting spot and has access to world class facilities. He is basically being paid to travel around Europe and keep himself fit. He probabaly has a family who has settled in London so is in no rush to go anywhere.

    Sagna Mertesacker Koscielny Gibbs
    Isco Gustavo Wilshere
    Walcott Gervinho Cazorla

    Dream team...
  20. Cudareli

    Cudareli Antonio Valencia stan

    GK: Reina (Szez)

    RB: Sagna (with an extension until 2015)
    LB: Gibbs
    CB: Vermaelen (Mertesacker)
    CB: Koscielny

    CM: Wilshere (Arteta)
    CM: Diame (Diaby)

    RW: Sterling (Zaha)
    AM/SS: Podolski (Ox)
    LW: Cazorla (Rosicky)

    ST: Giroud (Ba)(Adrian)

    Players in: Zaha, Adrian, Ba, Diame, Sterling and Reina.

    Depending on where Gnabry is at, we could avoid having to sign Zaha.

    Adrian, Ba and Diame would all be cheap additions that would strengthen us beyond doubt. Sterling is the winger we need at the club, quick, tricky, great final ball, versatile and wants to play out wide. Slight positonal changes will see our 3rd midfielder playing as a second striker as opposed to dropping to deep to defend.

    Players out: The standard names.
