nah saw something that City have the longest time in total between matches, United and Burnley/West Ham the worst iirc

Think City have at least 3 days between their matches, 4 for one them, yous arent playing till the 28th after tonight sure.

That penalty last night was atrocious. How can a ref give that? He fell to the ground while his standing foot wasnt touched. Shouldnt even have been a foul outside the box

If it does go through I think it's a great bit of business, regardless of the price tag compared to whats left on his contract. We badly need an experienced leader in the attack, someone that the likes of Martial and Rashford can learn from. Will take a bit of pressure of Lukaku as well.

I'd love to see Sanchez at United.
He'd get through 3 times the amount of work Lukaku does.
And he'd do it against all opposition too, not just the lower teams, when he fancies it.
And in Europe.

He's no leader but he is a great signing for United IMO. Jose can sit back all he wants and just throw Sanchez and another forward up front and still have a decent goal threat. I've seen people say he wont suit Jose but I think the opposite, the problem is he gives the ball away far more than most players and that does allow for counter attacks but Jose doesn't push on like Arsenal so it wont be half as big of an issue.

I still have a feeling City will get him in the end though

It seems like the story they've put out about pulling back is a negotiating tactic with Sanchez's agent

I think Lukakus put in a decent effort when he's not been scoring, does a lot of the tracking back that Pogba, Mata et al won't do, often to his detriment because he's not in a position to score when there's a break on.

Sounds like the Sanchez to United deal is hitting the skids today anyway, if it was ever really on the cards.

he would be a leader to Rashford, Martial, Lukaku and Lingard

Chelsea in for Sanchez apparently now. City out

wonder how much he likes London? Arsenal want £30m plus Mhkitaryan.

Still worth it. Mkhitaryan is done at United as long as Mourinho is in charge.

Aye, he's not suited to the league at all.

Would prob win the Europa for Arsenal if he did go but apparently hes on 200k a week and Arsenal wont match it. And he wants to go back to Dortmund

I really hope we don't take any of Uniteds rejects. The only United players I'd want to see us taking are the ones they wont offer.

What do Arsenal fans think of Aubameyang as a potential Sanchez replacement? Odd signing considering ye spent £60m on Lacazette in the summer. 2 Similar players

I think Aubameyang is a level above Lacazette. He'd go straight into the top 3 strikers in the league along with Kane and Aguero IMO.

Sounds like there are a lot of potential ins and outs at Arsenal right now. Hopefully Mislintat is working on a pretty big overhaul.

I agree he's better than Lacazette, I just find it odd, unless he is planning to go with 2 up top and Ozil free behind them. Just that he's not a like for like replacement.

You'd think he'd be up there with Kane and Aguero but you never know how strikers are going to settle coming from another league. Just wonder why no other big clubs are in for him if he's that good
