If the going rate for a benchwarmer from the Portuguese league is 40m we should clear 10! He actually reminds me of Bailly a lot...except not as good

It sounds like Wenger is willing to let Mustfi go too. I'm ok if we get a replacement in but I'm not at all confident of that happening.
Wengers a mess. He signed Mustafi for £35m last summer, played him in almost every game, now he wants to get rid of him. Meanwhile he keeps saying he's desperate to keep Ox who was offered a contract last summer and didn't really get a look in until the formation change. Wengers going to leave the club in a worse state than Fergie left United.

City poxed in the end. Would love to have seen them dropping more points. Pressure on pep early on

Yeah he did and he was pretty good once we moved to 3 at the back too IMO. He had a short spell where his form dropped but selling him is bonkers. He's our only decent centre half who is capable of playing 2 games a week.

Looks like he'll go this week as well as Ox, Lucas, Gibbs and a couple of others. We are more than likely going to end up with a negative net transfer spend this summer. Wenger, the board and all major shareholders need to fuck off. Whens that Nigerian lads pipeline done? We need a change ASAP.

Usmanov would surely buy yis if the opportunity arose?

Looks like Liverpool have finally gotten Keita. If they sell Coutinho and get Keita and Lemar they'll be a far better team for it.

Not coming till next summer though

I just think they're mad to turn down that money for Coutinho, consider his return of goals and assists

the numbers getting thrown around, and his being unhappy, i'd have expected us to accept. Fingers crossed the numbers are still the same next year if Barca do still chase him

slightly curious if this Lemar pursuit is related to considering letting him go now

Doesn't look like it. Wouldn't blame him though.

Glad to see the back of Ox.

Yeah at can't afford to be losing 3 starters
No real way walters could be fully fit.
Not sure if long has kicked off what ever was bothering him, but he's had a terrible 12 months
Brady and McLean to do the job?

Long is shite. Never been trusted by a club manager really. I don't think we can count on him tbh, I wonder will Hogan work out for us

ah long had a decent run for about 18 months, looked a half decent prem striker, or at least the best that we have to offer. he just hasn't kicked on. even charlie austin kicked him out of the team

Long has managed around 43 goals in 8 seasons in the Premier League. Its kind of amazing he's managed to stay in the league for that long TBH
