Lot of gossip saying he on the brink of signing for us.
Do we need him and where would he play. And who would be left out in his presence.?
Sane or Sergio, if he plays left to come in or as a striker.
Great player of course.
But I Really think it would be kun who cops out.

I really can't decide whether to be excited by this or not. On the one hand, a fantastic player, proven in the league and tireless work ethic. On the other hand his wages are said to be around the 350k p/w mark and, as Kimbo says, where would he play? Pep apparently wants two players fir every position without a drop in quality. Nice idea but keeping all those players happy will be a real test, the only way to do it is to win everything I suppose

Sane, Sterling, Jesus, Aguero, Silva, De Bruyne, Bernardo

Do we really need another attacking player???

I agree with you both. As good as he is do we really need him. Injurys aside kun my have got more goals. And next season jesus maybe get a golden boot in his first full season.
And like nods said that's a shit load of moolah for him.
We should be really getting the back sorted. And get that mendy deal done.
Way more important.
And now the dippers have shot themselves in the foot with that van dick. If he wants to be at a top side and play CL then it's us or chavs and the chavs are cunts and smell so he needs to come here.

If you think of it as an attacking four (sometimes five) then that falls short of two for every position I suppose. Is Iheanacho staying?

Just an attacking 5? That including the fullbacks? Think it's more an attacking 7 tbh. Sanchez would fit in terms of playstyle - devastating going forward and just as energetic tracking back, very mobile, intelligent on the ball... but i'd worry about his temprement as he seems like a bit of a moody cunt.

Well Yaya is a moody fucker at times and the start to last season. With pep demanding a apologie from Yaya or his agent.
He got it and sorted the situation out and Yaya was great after that..

True, pep probably is one of a tiny number of managers with the standing and gravitas to bitch slap any trouble like that.

Well muckers my last post was 8th July saying we may have signed him.
What a mug..

Anyways today's the day I guess.
I doubt Le arse a free gonna lose out on 70m when we can get him for nowt next year.

Reading the other posts here. Still do we need him.
But it's going to be quite a force going forward.
I guess on the left sane will be the one on the bench. But he has had a ropey start and may need to warm up again.
But we will be pretty scary going forward for sure..

Seems Arsenal want a cash + player deal.
Sterling is out but Delph is available.
Obviously he would replace Oxbow-Chamberpot.

Yep. Sterling or kun is a no go.
But yeah if we could give them someone on the edge of the team. So be it.

Looks like we have finally got rid of bony. 12m to Swansea.
Thats a result really... I didn't think we'd get 12p for him..

Note to self: have a bet on kelechi to score against us and bony to score against us.. :whistle:

Looking like Sanchez maybe staying at Arsenal.

Up till now it looked as if he was coming to us after Arsenal willing to pay £92 million for Lemar at Monaco, now Arsenal feel it is too late to do a deal for Lemar and Sanchez will be staying.


Things just got mighty mighty awkward

well don't keep things for the last fucking second! What's the point of that? You had two months to get it sorted. Same thing every year!

Yep...to be fair our interest has been transparent for awhile.
Arse have plenty of time to get a replacement in and they have enough money.
Not like they need to get our money first..
And not I feel that they will have a slightly unsettled player as they are a shambles right now.
Ramsey even hashtagged about the ox before saying as much and then deleted it..

And it seems we have ended our interest in Evans... :text-woo:

Glad we haven't being held to ransom.

In the back of my mind i'm hoping we've said to Sanchez how desperate you wanna play for us?? Is he willing to stay st Arsenal till the Summer, or are you a money greedy bastard??

But lets face it, if were being offered what he is wanting you wouldn't turn it down.

His cat probably earns more than me..
But totally agree gal.
Pep didn't want a Billy big bollocks walking in on possibly a 100 grand more than our top earners.

I'm on board now in pep we trust.
