    Jeez. When you think about it, the Bum squad on here went so deep with the Emery love they wanted any trash that suited his horrendous football.

    As long as it’s genuinely what arteta wants and they aren’t lying then it’s all good. Burning sage to keep the bad energy from the club as we speak !

    Very hard to call.

    Ziyech has a wand of a left peg and could just become a magician but the adaptation to the PL, his (relative) lack of athleticism and the competition for places at Chelsea suggest to me that it may be a while before we see him at his best.

    This right here.:rofl:

    There would be posts about me on my clubs forum "had all the the talent in the world, just didn't want it enough". :lol:

    He's the sort of half-forward we seem to play with nowadays.

    Someone to mentor Saka, Martinelli and Nelson.

    Controversial take, any parent whose child looks up to a footballer for guidance has failed in their duty.

    Oh is he? I thought they hadn't put a date on his return. Either way that's still 4 players ahead of him in the pecking order. I personally think he needs to be playing regular PL football, I can't see him getting many minutes at Arsenal next season.

    In the long run, Saka/Martinelli only 18 and Pepe 25, so I cant see him ever being a first 11 player at Arsenal. With that in mind, I think the club should look to sell him tbh. Same goes with Willock.

    Fair enough. You won't hear a complaint from me again provided the above is true.

    Willian positives:

    + Won't be a passenger technically, can actually play football
    + Winning experience
    + Gives us depth on both wings and potentially in attacking midfield
    + Another set piece specialist to add to our ranks
    + One of Chelsea's best players this season
    + Should really be able to give us at least one good season
    + A top 4 level player for cheaper than any other option we could get really

    My question is are they offering arteta Willian and he just says yes/no? Cos that’s what I think is happening

    To get back into the top 4. I told you, it’s a process. We’ve just won a massive pot with a band of bums. We’re ahead :drool:

    Would take that bet but you won't be hanging around AM very long as we're signing Willian.

    That's on the coach. Not convinced Raul and Edu are up to his standard.

    Not saying Willian is a bad player, far from it. But we need those wages for a quality CM and a CB . . . and maybe to keep Auba.

    So Ornstein has confirmed that Arteta wants the player, and that clubs such as City/United were also interested in him? That's good enough for me.

    I can see similarities between this signing and Milner to Liverpool.

    Imagine that though... Imagine the diseases you would have if you earned that much money at 18. You’d have to build an STD clinic in your house and a rehab next door to that. Having said that, if you lead the sort of life that meant you were a top football talent at 18, you should really have the discipline. Resisting temptation after that comes down to good parenting, respect and pride.

    It’s not an either or situation so why paint it that way? Do you really think they’d sign Willian if it meant they couldn’t extend Auba or sign Partey? They’re probably signing him because it allows them to do exactly that.

    Just spoke to a Chelsea fan I work with. He laughed when we got Luiz, he's not laughing about Willian, he said he was their best player this season. I would say he was one of their best, maybe their best since the restart.

    I don't really see the need for both Willian and Coutinho tbh. Coutinho has always performed better on the left IMO, and we will potentially have Auba and Willian as options there, not to mention Saka and Martinelli.
