It's everywhere now.

As long as it means he will keep Sanogo out of my consciousness it will be good. Can see him working alongside Welbeck eventually (not Sanogo obv!).

Still bollocks. Ornstein said that Arsenal have triggered his release clause and are in talks with Leicester to sign him.

The whole fucking point of a release clause is that you don't need to negotiate with the club.

You do.
The contract is between Leics and Vardy. We're not party to it. We need to make an offer for Vardy and then (presumably) the release clause states that Leics must inform the player and accept the offer.

As with the Suarez fiasco, we're not in a position to enforce the clause, so if the club play hardball the player would have to begin proceedings against it, which would take time, money and be very messy.

Abso-fucking-lutely 8) He is country miles ahead of EVERY SINGLE STRIKER we have - are we that snobby that we think buying at Leicester is beneath us ?? :roll: Tell me a realistic world class striker that any of ye can see us signing under this French pr*ck ? He is as good as we are gonna get and he will bring pace and goals to a team that has f.uck all of either, and £20m-£25m isn't severe

This story leaves me underwhelmed but when you consider:

Aubameyang has apparently said no to a move.
Morata has a poor goals record.
Zlatan is more likely to go with Mourinho than Wenger.
We won't pay Napoli asking price for Higuain.
It's an improvement on our current position.

then maybe we should embrace a goal scoring, international premier league winner for £20m?

Jamie fucking Vardy. Jamie fucking one season wonder Vardy. Is that honestly the best that our amazing scouting network can come up with? Shall we go after Benzema? What about trying to get Higuan? Nah, fuck it, that would show some ambition and might be hard work. Let's just get that rat faced, diving chav from Leicester. He's proven Champions League quality isn't he? Honestly, fucking fuck this. Him and Giroud up front next year, they'll score ten goals between them.

Vardy wouldn't fit in. He wants the ball early whilst our "artists" will be too busy passing it around and admiring their little triangles.

Seriously, and with all respect to him for a very good season, if Jamie Vardy is the height of our ambitions, then we might just as well give up.

Maybe for £20m he is being looked at for the bench, but it does worry me more than a bit. I just don't see him as a permanent solution. And I bet Ozil and Sanchez don't either. I'm not being patronising because he plays for Leicester, and maybe if he was 25 I might think a bit differently, but at 29 with one good season? I just don't know.

Awesome news!

Are we seriously going to moan about Giroud, who went 15 league games without a goal between January and April, and then reject the guy who just broke the record for most goals in consecutive games?

Try again amigo. How about stick Vardy wide and out of position so he doesn't have to upset his wee rentboy's feelings eh! :roll:
Trying to ignore that Vardy was obviously super-effective in a system that got the ball forward as quickly as possible, and based on rapid counterattack. Cos Wenker teams don't play ponderous sideways bollocks instead eh....:rubchin:
Still. If Arsene can't compete with Leicester might as well try asset-strip them right? :lol:

Completely baffling signing if it happens. Our boring stuck system doesn't suit him at all, struggling to see how this will work.

Inter are having massive financial problems and Icardi would be an ideal signing and probably available, but a nice cheap and short term solution is always preferred...
