    Good. Never wanted him here. For 15m we could get much better players. Ba went for half that price ffs

    I think the fact that United agreed to loan him back for the remainder of the season made Palace more likely to deal. I can't see Arsenal paying £15 million and then loaning the player.

    As fabo said I'd rather we go for Shaw if we want an English kid. £15-£20 million is an absolute joke of a price for a 20 year old that hasn't proved anything.

    It's the typical "we didn't get the player so lets slag him off" that you always see on this forum.

    You do know Luke Shaw will cost top dollar too? 12-15M? He is that good.

    Shaw has 14 appearances for SFC while Zaha has featured 120 times for Palace in a tough league. I don't get these arguments at all.

    Shaw is too good for us already btw, he'll be joining City, Chelsea or Manure.

    Thank f**k.

    Not quite sure what people saw in this kid anyway. 15 mil for some brainless dribbler who can't even produce decent numbers in the Championship after over a hundred games. Doesn't matter either way though, we need instant production regardless of how talented someone might be.

    Where did I slag Zaha off? I just find it ridiculous that a 20 year old that has only played at Championship level is going to cost £20 million.

    For the record I would definitely pay the £12-£15 million Southampton would ask for Shaw. I know they play in different positions but Shaw at only 17 looks a better prospect.

    I would pay the £12-15 million for Shaw in a heartbeat. I have seen him a few times and on every one he has impressed me. The boy has top level potential and will be better than Gibbs. If I had to choose between Shaw and Zaha I'd choose Shaw especially when we have other exciting prospects like Gnabry coming through. Can't remember a defensive prospect ever exciting me this much, he's the real deal.
    Can't see us getting him this season though, he's developing well at the Saints.

    I haven't seen enough of him to comment on his potential. But the main thing for me is he is not ready to help us right now. So I'd much rather spend the $15m on a Cavani or Jovetic, a big name who will help us achieve 4th this season, and provide the foundation to win a real trophy in the not-so-distant future.

    If $15 million can't buy you Zaha it certainly won't get you Cavani or Jovetic. Unlikely Cavani would come here until the end of the season either with Napoli doing so well.

    15 million will buy you nothing more than a dinner date with cavani or jovetic. not even a hand job let alone a contract.

    I really find it hard to believe that he was classed as a "diehard Arsenal fan" yet is seriously considering to move to Manchester Utd. He's even old enough and I'm even younger than him to realise the rivalry we have back then despite it dying down.

    Thanks for putting that so elegantly. :) I didn't suggest $15m is enough, just that the money can be better used elsewhere. I'd much rather spend $30m on a quality player today, than buying two or three $10m+ players who will need several years before helping us to win anything.

    Very disappointed to see him go to Man U as he will be a dangerous player and will quickly repay that 15m

    If we were to end up signing nobody, then id be very disappointed we didn't even fight for Zaha.

    However if we passed on him because we have someone more senior who could contribute to the first team immediately, then passing on Zaha was the right move. We have The OX, as our developing talent.

    Why are people dissappointed? We got guys like Chamberlain, Walcott and Gnabry to play as RW. We dont need another promising youngster.

    People make way, way too much of this whole fan thing.

    Its just something the papers throw in to try and make a link more credible, and something that agents tell players to say to ingratiate themselves with their new supporters.

    Firstly, there are countless examples of Gooners who have played for our rivals. Darren Bent used to have a season ticket. Ashley Young followed us as a kid, as did Harry Redknapp donkeys years ago.

    When you get inside the game you probably stop being a fan. Your perception of the club will be affected by things that we aren't privy to as supporters, or aren't affected by at all.

    Also, becoming a footballer seems like a long and arduous road, and if you get a chance you take it with both hands. You seriously expect Zaha to turn down Manchester United, arguably the third biggest club in the world, because he used to watch Arsenal on the box?
