  1. Who needs Sandro?
  2. Julian Draxler for 32m or Danny Drinkwater for 40m... https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/sport/arsenal-consider-fresh-approach-for-draxler-c96jd3m6k Tough one.
  3. Oh dear. Might need to buy some midfielders by next week.
  4. Conte did screw up not starting with Morata.
  5. Implications for what remains of the transfer window aren't good. Amazing how the Board manage to f**k things up again. You'd think they'd have learned by now. Just going to have throw a lot of money at the problem and give the manager better options.
  6. This is just embarrassing. Team are a mess. Club are a mess. Board need to take a long hard look at themselves.
  7. Batshuayi just can't hold up the ball.
  8. I thought he was a right-back too but in this video he appears to be playing mainly on the left side. Think he's right-footed as well (same as Azpi when he played as a left-back). http://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/839163/Joao-Cancelo-Chelsea-Premier-League-Transfer-News-Gossip Seems like a decent player though.
  9. I think that both Barkley and Oxlade-Chamberlane would be solid signings. Both young, physically strong, experienced in the Premier League, and with potential to improve under a manager like Conte who is good at getting the best out of his players. As both are coming to the end of their contracts they are both available at a decent price too. We could do a lot worse at this stage of the window.
  10. Sure. But with Champions League and domestic cups there'll be plenty of occasions when we'll be playing a game every three days or so. Not a problem if you have a well balanced squad to rotate. Right now we look undermanned in central midfield and wing backs. Possibly overreliant upfront on Hazard being fit as well. I'm sure the Board know this. The question is whether we are now scrabbling about for alternatives because our first choice targets have proved unattainable.
  11. My guess is that he'd rotate with Kante and Bakayoko as one of the central two. Given that we'd be playing three games a week and they are our only two CM options right now, that's where our priority seems to be right now. Not sure how Barkley's come to be a priority for this role (if these reports are right), but it does look like we've stumbled into this by accident rather than design or planning.

  14. Yes, he's 14 and still wears braces on his teeth. Good to see our Board is exploring all options during this window though.
  15. Kid is a bit raw and needs to bulk up a bit, but could be a good option off the bench... http://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/834945/Celtic-Chelsea-Transfer-News-Karamoko-Dembele-Arsenal-Manchester-City-News
