    Re: Wayne Bridge on loan?

    Unfortunately someone like Bridge is all we can hope for.

    Normally a loan signing is a kind of 'try before you buy' scenario, or a way of giving that player experience.

    The fact that we aren't looking to sign someone permanently means that we are probably restricted to players who other clubs want to either get off the wage bill for a couple of months, or get a bit of match fitness. The only alternative to someone like Bridge might be a youngster from the continent or the lower leagues who Wenger may consider taking a punt on as a permanent deal in the summer.

    Apparently Maxwell is allowed to leave Barca for 2m euros. Would much prefer him. Milan are said to be interested, which could also open for Taiwo on-loan.

    compared to Bridge, Maxwell would be like signing Maldini in his prime.

    Coquelin done well today but will probably be needed at RB and midfield in the coming games, Bridge would be handy I think.

    Agree with the Coquelin bit. Bridge, no, no, no.

    Thank goodness for that.

    Although the excuse given was that we don't to pay high wages for a player that is only going to be here for a couple of months. Isn't exactly what we are doing with Henry.

    Why don't we just say we are not interested in Bridge because we don't want a player that is rubbish and who seems more interested in money than playing football

    No worries, Wenger got it covered, he's giving a trial to 24 year old Omani defender Saas Al-Mukhaini. Get in.

    He plays in the Omani SECOND division, too. Not even the first division. Seriously.

    And people seriously think Wenger WANTS to sign players from the Omani second division?

    Blame the board.

    Re: Wayne Bridge on loan?

    If this is in relation to a loan left back signing then I don't see why it's so staggering. We have Gibbs and Santos BOTH injured, with our 'only use in emergencies LB' Vermaelen injured too what would you suggest?

    Do people really expect us to spend a bunch of money on a THIRD CHOICE left back who'd only be needed for a month or so? That would be ridiculous surely.

    Re: Wayne Bridge on loan?

    cheapness was relying on a guy who has been injured his whole career to be your starting LB, then panic buying a LB who cant defend on deadline day because your starting LB predictably was injured. Everyone but Wenger figured Gibbs would miss a big chunk of this season.

    Re: Wayne Bridge on loan?

    Agree with choosing Gibbs as number one being a very high risk approach. Don't agree that Santos can't defend or was that much of a 'panic buy'.

    Re: Wayne Bridge on loan?

    We have a LB who is always injured and Santos who looks ok as a back up LB so clearly we need a top player and get rid of one of these.

    Bearing in mind we are one of the richest clubs in world football, with aspirations of challenging for the top European titles, what are we doing looking at an Omani second division player. Is this how far our ambition has dropped.

    I just hope Wenger realises that Gibbs is nearly always going to be crocked, and knowing the amount of players we have at the club collecting vast wages for sitting on the physio's bench, we need players who play, rather than crocks that don't
