Dont sign Erikssen....and can we keep Balogun please
Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun has agreed to join RB Leipzig, according to reports. Balogun is out of contract at Arsenal at the end of the season and has been frustrated by his lack of game time under Mikel Arteta. The 19-year-old is yet to make his Premier League debut.
Got fuck all to do with game time I'm sure, he's 19, how much does he expect.

More like I'm running down my contract like my hero ozil ffs.

I should imagine some of it is to do with money, Leipzig have bags of cash through the RB side of things and they're in the Chumps league still and 2nd in the Bundesliga, not the worst choice if he has no wish to hang around this shithole :roll:

I’d be looking to leave too if I regularly saw Eddie, Pepe and Willian playing ahead of me!
Massive fuck up by Arteta, saying that Eddie is not going and letting Balogun go. Why do Arsenal have so many thick c.unts making decisions? :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Agreed. Any 19 year old that is allegedly "demanding" game time needs a fucking slap. This stinks of his parasite - oops, agent - looking for the first of many paydays. Anelka, anyone? :roll:

Good news. Hopefully they stay away. We can't become that club that just sells its kids every year. With Wenger we held onto too many of them long after it was obvious they were not good enough.... I hope we are not now going to the other extreme.

Cant let the useless c.unt go because he let a young promising defender leave on loan and that leaves us short of centre backs - you couldnt make this shit up :roll: Get rid of the c.unt even on a free and play runarsson there if you have to :banghead: :banghead:

"Saliba's loan move to Nice and the imminent departure of Sokratis to Olympiacos would leave Arsenal short of cover in the heart of the defence."

Are you sure? I thought we had about 400 players in those positions. FFS!!

Yeah! Agreed 1,000% - Either he is being manipulated by his agent or If he is throwing his toys out of the pram Pogba style - Sell him the fuckk straight away - Egoistic little twattt. :box:

Thing is though lads, if you are stuck behind players of genuine quality then you would be less inclined to "demand" playing time - this guy is behind some average players and arteta doesnt even pick him in the squad for most games, so if he was happy about that at 19 years of age, then it would be a poor reflection on the kid and we would question his hunger.
For me this is another situation where arteta is showing his inexperience - if this kid is as good as many of you say he is, then the last thing arteta should want is to lose him, so selling nketieh now would be (in my opinion) a positive nod to the kid saying that he has faith in him and will be giving him more game time. To me it is identical to the saliba situation where arteta is keeping mustafi (and nketieh) and losing saliba (and Balogun) by making the wrong players feel important

Exactly, when you're a jumped up little c.unt like Jermaine Pennant playing behind the Invincibles, by all means go and take a running jump. When you're Balogun, playing behind Eddie Nketiah who has had umpteen chances in the team and is part of what was the team with the fewest number of shots until a couple of weeks back and a piss poor goalscoring record, you might be entitled to think......what do I need to do here to earn a chance? Especially when in the few fleeting glimpses we've had he has been a real handful and notched the odd goal or two. I suspect if the previous manager had allowed him to leave it would be because he'd lost the dressing room, but El Beige can't do any wrong can he, so no doubt this time round its a disruptive player who deserves to be punted
