ALL Transfer talk - merged thread

Unless these big, big signings involve the name Neymar, than they really are not that big a signing.

It would be interesting to see how things pan out for him as he's no doubt he's a talented player but Brazil winning the Copa, without him, and PSG willing to unload him leaves him at a point where he could fade into obscurity or do what Maradona did when he left Barcelona for Napoli, won then the UEFA Cup and league title. Wouldn't it be great if that was The Arsenal.
How is it up there on your planet with all the other Clangers :lol:
When I hear talk about big big players being signed I think of Bergkamp, Overmars, Henry, Arshavin and Ozil. Top drawer world class talent. There is a scarcity of world class players, Neymar is a bonafide world class player. None of the players we are linked to come anywhere near the "big, big" signings I'd expect to go with that moniker. I know we won't sign Neymar, (although given he's been linked to united I don't see why not, they're in the same boat as us), then I don't want to hear that phrase being used as a carrott. Zaha is not a "big big" signing, he's adequate at best.
If I was in Kroenke shoes, I'd dip my hands in my pockets and get Neymar on loan for one season, just to distract the moaning masses and see all the shirt sales with his name on the back rocket through the roof. Totally not what the club needs but a bit of glamour and a sprinkle of stardust cheers everyone up.
Not doubting neymars quality (is is also the best spring board diver in the world) but your suggestion that we would be in any position to sign, not a chance, we couldn't afford to sign any of his unborn offspring ffs :lol:

Hodgson unaware of Zaha exit request

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson says he is unaware of Wilfried Zaha telling the club he wants to leave and expects him to stay.

Is that the same roy Hodgson who was unaware of Harry Kane's goal threat from corners during Euro 2016? The only rational explanation for him taking corners rather than being in the box having the opportunity to finish them off.

I did say Kroenke to dip into his pockets, not the club. The club can't afford an 18 year old defender, that's why they are loaning him back.

Did I miss something?
Weren't the world and his dog slating Zaha for being a diving cheat last season. I don't want to see him coming to us tbh, and certainly not for 70-80m quid, and at his age.
Apparently, Saliba is coming to us, next year. Would that mean we have to rely on Mustafi being in the line up this season? :banghead:
Holding, Sokratis and then take your pick from 3 others, unless we get another ready to go player. Cahill? :shock:
I reckon Tierney will be coming too. Although he is from a pub league, he has plenty of improvement in him, going by the Celtic forums.
Ceballos and Soares are getting plenty of write up's in other places. Who knows?

Said to my young lad this morning that I'm not expecting us to sign him, but that it wouldn't really shock me if we did sign him (on loan)

He will go and we will get money for our self sustainability , we might get the targetswe are afterand a Kos replacement if we spread the payments thinly over 4 or 5 years . If we have to pay up front it's all off.

In other news, along with Petr Cech, another four ex-gooners retired this summer. Benayoun, Chamakh, Julio "The Beast" Baptista, and Van Persie. All played at the Emirates. All brought us absolutely no success. Although, they did contribute to some of our best games in that period. The 7-5 victory over Reading, the 6-3 victory at Anfield, 5-3 victory at Chelski and the 4-4 draw at anfield.

Anyone else heard about this?

Sven Mislintat tells why? he left Arsenal as the Head Scout Hugh Wizzy reporting on it

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iMXgGCbi6E

Just the first 10 minutes says much, and it doesn't sound very good for Arsenal's way of buying etc in the future. (sorry for the bad news)

I have a really horrible feeling that Bale is somehow going to end up back at Spurs on loan :?
