    to play in a top league with a chance at winning all kinds of silverware? and the whole point is that we can let him go after a season or two, when ramsey, song, denilson, diaby or whoever are ready to take their place in our first team squad.

    makes more sense than spending 18m to get barry instead of paying 1m more to keep flamini, no? same argument applies to alonso and any other CM you can think of.

    I thought that the 1 year contracts for over 30's was only on contract extensions ??? Maybe for signing a player, it would be a 3 year contact. No point in giving a player a 1 year contact (whose costing a £3/4mil fee) so they can sign for someone else 6 months later.

    Rather than this guy I'd prefer to go for Senna or even Aurellio who played very well for Turkey in the Euroes, both around that age but but looked very impressive and able to cope in high octane games

    Senna's staying at Villarreal and Aurelio has just signed for Real Betis. I wouldn't mind Frings. He's a real fighter with a lot of ability too. We could do with someone in midfield with the experience and quality he possesses.

    Cheers for the update Gurj, had no idea that Aurelio had recently signed for Betis. As a stop gap this guy could do a job I suppose but I dont like the idea of that, means more waiting for one of the youngsters to step up

    personally i am not impressed by the CM's we are linked with, none of them really ticks the boxes, I'd expect wenger to surprise me here.

    Oh I am sure he will. Though more of the ...."what Diaby is the DM?" or "Eboue the answer to our wing problems?"

    rather than "Barry? wow" or "Xabi? Wow".

    I am getting a bad feeling about this summers signings. I think it may be all over.

    wenger himself said after the barnet match 'One certainly, two maximum' new faces.
    I don't know they are Dm or not, I think we are still in the market, because Le boss said so.

    By suprising i mean buy noone and then loan out denilson and song to portsmoth, but if we play adebayor in Dm, as his work rate is comparable to flamini, i will just say, it could've been worse.

    well, isnt that the point of the youngsters, that they step up when theyre ready to become world beaters? werent we complaining that we were over-reliant on cesc after vieira was sold and basically threw away one, maybe two seasons for the sake of his development? i think its a great idea to sign a cheap stopgap who can keep up our high standards in the first team and allow us to ease in our talented young players so that we dont have to suffer in the standings for youth development, but will be ready to leave when the youngsters are ready to rock.

    Seriously, no player is gonna join us on a one year contract.

    Pires wouldn't even sign a oner and he was already here.

    Stu: If we go and give a brand new 3 year contract to someone over 30, it kinda makes a mockery of the policy, don't you think?

    Extensions/new contracts - it's the same rule.

    How old was Makelele when he went to Chelsea?
  13. Anzac

    different style & formation to us - Makelele basically sat in the hole in front of his CBs, which is not what we want...........everyone keeps banging on about needing a dynamic box-to-box MCd type, as opposed to a specialised DM.

    If we persist with this short CB partnership, then I think we will need a DM that would just sit.

    I don't understand how the Frings/Senna threads have remained active for so long.

    I like him and wouldn't mind him here at all.
    Its about as realistic as us spending 20 mil on a 27 year old Englishman though.

    I reckon we'd need one because we use our FBs so far forward - but I'm in the minority on that one. :wink:

    A monster of a DM that can deal with long balls, Plug in the gaps left by Clichy/Sagna, and is able to bring the ball foward by a good pass or a dribble would be marvelous.

    I don't know anybody in the market who could do all that though, let alone we could afford.

    An enegertic CM like Flamini would probably be the best way to go.

    Vieira was a legend here for a good reason - players like him are hard to find.

    Completely agree here, a stop gap signing like Frings or Senna would be the perfect solution to our midfield problems. Allow Denislon, Song, Ramsey, et all time to develop.

    If we signed this guy, I would love to hear what song Red Action can find for him.

    I have been trying to think of just ONE.
