£3,000,000 left to spend then! We must be calm this summer!

If you believe what you have read then Arsene Wenger has only got £3m left to spend on summer recruits.

'Reports' said Wenger had £13m available to him to sign players over the summer. 'Reports' say we have spent £10m of that on some Belgian player whose name sounds like something I bought from a bakers earlier.

Thomas Vermaelen is a player that Wenger would usually go for. Young and pretty much unheard of. Whether the rumours are true or not is another matter.

I don't know what to believe to be honest. But £10m sounds like a lot of money for an unknown to me.

I suppose there is two arguments to that though. Nemanja Vidić only cost Manchester United £7m and he was as famous as Bros. Look at how that signing turned out!

Its not about how well-known the player is anyway. Its about quality and I think we Gooners have to bear that in mind this summer with Arsene's signings. (If he makes any!)

I'm not expecting 'superstars', it aint gonna happen. I'd love to wake one sunny morning and find a lovely little surprise in that Arsenal have signed David Villa, but the truth is that something like that is as likely to happen as me marrying my dream woman Susan Boyle.

Let's try to remain calm when the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City are spending more money than Elton John does on flowers and Arsenal are still yet to make their mark in the market.

The only time to panic is when we haven't signed anyone and it is five to midnight on the night the transfer window shuts. Until then, take everything you read with a pinch of salt.

lol at last comment well put. Only believe it when it comes up on arsenal.com. It is gonna be a long tedious summer of supposed transfers and utter b*llocks that some websites can conjur up. This morning sky sports news claims oba martins agent has said that we are interested in signing him along with villa and the scum down the road. Lol believe it when i see on the website. Roll on the next bullsh*t transfer "ARSENAL COMPLETE TRIPLE SIGNING OF CHIELLINI, DE ROSSI AND VILLA FOR MAJOR TRANSFER FEE" if only!

Forget about the singings, what the fuck has happened to Tony Adams? He's been coming out with some pretty weird comments lately - the Celtic job, the Arsenal board member who doesn't like Wenger etc. I used to hope he'd one day take over from Wenger, but I dread that happening now, luckily it never will.

The Tactician said...

Forget about who we sign, if Wenger and the team would listen to me we'd have cleaned up this season. What we need to do is score more goals than whoever we are playing, if we do that trophies will surely follow. It's simple but brutally effective and I hope it's a tactic that Arsenal adopt.

Arsene, in the unlikely event that you are reading this, you can have that piece of tactical advice for free. I'd appreciate a name-check when you win the Champion's League though. Doesn't cost anything.

we should def sign oba martins even though were fine without him hes class any one would agree if you saw him play for a quality team like arsenal who agrees?

Pritpal said...

i read somewhere that it was actually 25m budget so hopefully theres another 15m to spend maybe on veloso? please can i be right for once

Sanj said...

I agree about Martins as long as he doesn't cost too much. I still remember the demolition job he did on us when we played Inter a few years back. He's been shite for Newcastle, but then again, who hasn't?

Mayank said...

is the signing real for sure??..i don't think so..anyway i'd rather wenger buys someone known for CB..i trust his decisions for MF and strikers but his signings for defence have been tacky at times..

What position does this mongolian play in? Are there any videos of him on youtube that i can watch and play with myself whilst viewing? Perhaps some grainy mobile fone vids of him warming up whilst at under 9 level (for the school play, obviously)?
Typical wenger signing tho, i bet he goes straight int the first team during the summer, gets injured and doest play again for several years (at least until he's 15). Im not even sure whether im being sarcastic or not anymore.

Whats his favourite colour? Did he support metaluirg whastheirname as a kid? Does he dream of being the new jack wilshere?

I love silly season.......

12 year old Mongolian haha fuckin jokes lol I wouldn't be surprised if we did to be honest.
Anyways, I hope he doesn't try to sign Oba Martins, he's had a wank season and doesn't deserve a get-out from Newcastle. The man's a disgrace to football quite honestly, and so are the other Toon players blaming the managers theyve had for their individual lack of quality this season, it's a shit excuse and it's the easy option. He should stay there and dig them out of the shit.
I hope we sign maybe two established players, not world class 50m signings, but decent, experienced professionals who arent quite over the hill but have a few years left in them to aid the squad and youngsters around them. Either way, I'm not holding my breath or speculating on anything I read apart from whatever comes up on Arsenal.com...
Furthermore... thank fuck Sheikh-MAN-Sour City signed Barry, I can't stand the geezer to be quite honest.

Problem is aw think he is indispensable to the board.yes he's been making money but as the article so rightly point out,footbal has moved on.
He better catch the last train from football saloon or he will be left behind by those who are suddenly flush with cash.
don't take 4th place for granted.It's easy to get out of the top 4,getting in would be infinitely harder.

If the 12 year old Mongolian kid is as brave as Genghis Khan who almost conquered Europe, then signed him on as our central defender. He should be ready for action in year 2020 ......LOL

Seriously, can't wait who we'll sign on this summer.

Arsenal has been biding time over the past few years. The Arsenal board will not change it now or even their fourth spot were lost this year because both the board and Arsene have faith in their young guns who appear going to reaching their maturity soon.

Having said that, Wenger may go for one typical CB this summer.

The ideal one should be 24-27 years old as our current CBs is either too young or too old.

Mark Modi said...

Wenger will buy 2 or 3 players this season. trust me. CB already landed. Next is MF and ST. I can see Adebayor leave depend on Kaka situation. Whatever signing it is, Wenger wont break his budget for sure and I'm happy about it.

Breaking News, Liverpool have financial crisis. They have 350m pound dept to pay with interest of 36.5m pound a year. And this might force KOP to sell to another Arab billionaire.

So this is the situation we Arsenal fans don't want to face right now. It is better AW spend wisely as long as Arsenal financial is healthy and still challenging for Trophy. This season we still cause some major challege for all the trophy only to lost all at Semi Final.

Things will be brighter after a few inclusion of few new face.

Another news, Vidic might leave Man Utd if his family didn't like it in Manchester.

immy said...

id be happy with chellini or zapata....or both. both young an improving, and as far as i know have presence about them. thats the kinda defender i want in- a real meathead thats leads the back line like an army, an some back up. an get a midfielder in as well, another meathead why not? or at least someone with that bit of presence. though many love denilson- an potentially more loving song (me included), its strength and depth wins you trophies- so lets have a bit of competition for places

wow i hope that mongolian got an for the goal, maybe he can be a sticker to replace adebayor. wish u luck mongolian boy and don't be suprised when yu get an injury before arriving in london(i mean when going to the toilet in the plane) it is a condition to be a true arsenal player. GET injured. i love the arsenal. C'MONNNNNN mongolia. i love u wrighty
