    I think Walcott was probably meant to be his new Henry - converted winger with pace to burn.
    Arshavin was an attempt at a Bergkamp-esque player with a magic touch and calm finish.

    Unfortunately, Walcott couldn't finish a sentence and Arshavin just couldn't be bothered.

    Now he's trying to go all Barcelona and has roped in a bunch of midgets to run around midfield, whilst missing the point and having a big lump up front a la Stoke / West Ham.

The trickery is one aspect but I don't know how many have been won by Suarez and is he really significantly more likely to win a pen than someone like Henry was? I doubt it, not consistently to the level that we've seen in the last few weeks in any case.

    I think it's just the (5/6?) pens in recent games that is affecting people's perceptions and won't be buying Gerrard next season on the assumption of expecting 10 (or whatever it is) penalties :lol:


    Well at their current rate of scoring 2.7 goals per game they're going to end up equaling the record of most goals scored in a premier league season (103 by chelsea 2009/10)

    Although the recent spurt of pens is a bit of an anomaly I think over the season they've probably had roughly their fair share.

    I think you're reading too much into what I said. It was a little bit tongue in cheek as well. I don't think managers "should" know about Liverpool's penalties and I certainly don't think it's a norm. But even before today I am sure some managers out there were taking that into consideration when they brought Gerrard in.

    Did I accidentally spill your coffee today or something?

Gerrard cost 9.0 at the start of the season, so you're paying a premium for the anticipated extra goals. Baines is the same and Yaya would have been, except nobody knew he was a penalty taker at the start of the season.

    Suarez soon after signed a new 4 1/2 year deal, so it's not as if he wanted to go, in an RVP style.
    The bid and the contract were common knowledge, if he genuinely wanted to go to Arsenal then he would have, and I say he didn't.
    No top european club made any move, but if Liverpool had shown any inclination to sell pretty sure one or two would have stepped forward.

    Did he actually say the clause wasn't watertight or did be basically admit to saying 'f*** this - I bet if we say no we can get away with it. Contracts don't mean shit.'? My impression is that Suarez's clause was no different to any other buy-out clause and that explanation is far more plausible than the original 'the lawyers messed up - duh!'.

    Agree it would have been worth paying extra (given benefit of hindsight) to get their man but they may have (understandably) objected to being fleeced if they thought their bid was valid. Problem is really they didn't have another target so were left short in the striker department. They didn't have to put all their eggs in the Suarez basket but neither should they have kept them all in the Giroud basket.

    I'm sure the current clause was "watertight", but as Henry recently stated, they simply refused to honour it. If Suarez' agent had made enough noise about it, it might have been a different story. In the end, he probably just got talked round.

    Player power got a stark reversal in that scenario.

    I actually think in light of what John Henry said that Arsenal's bid for Suarez was quite smart and well-informed. I'm not sure you can legislate for a club effectively breaking the law by telling Suarez and Arsenal they can f*** off because they don't give a shit what the contract says. If they took that attitude, would they have sold for £50m? Unlikely imo.

    Had it been offered by Real Madrid, possibly, but Henry knew the consequences of selling to Arsenal, who he guessed would be an obstacle to qualify for the CL.
    Even at £50m + £1 I don't think we would have got him.
    And I stand by my view that Arsenal knew that, but by making a bid or two could convince their supporters they were at least trying to make world class signings.


    One thing's for sure, Suarez' lawyers will have made sure the release clause is watertight the next time he puts in a 'Steve Gerrard Gerrard'. £70m the rumoured figure?

    The fact is that until Stan Kroenke pisses off we'll never spend the money that we need to actually improve. Instead we'll continue to loan and buy cheap squad players from foreign second divisions for anything less than £12 million.


    Ozil? Suarez bid? Statements about cash available?

    I think Wenger is too set it in his ways following relative success (if not trophies) in the years of supposed austerity at the club and can't adapt to the new scenario of 'speculate to accumulate' meaning squad not stadium. The whole point of investing in the new stadium is lost if you just hoard your money like Ken Dodd. Will be doubly so if they miss out on the Wenger Cup, their raison d'etre.


    This article sums up the situation quite nicely.

    I would like to clarify something that came up in a recent blog concerning the Emirates Stadium debt. There are a few fans on this site who believe that the stadium debt is what has been hindering Arsenal from buying world class, quality players. This is not true, and I will explain below. Please read carefully because those of us who actually do know the facts would hate to have to post this over and over again.

    The total debt of the construction of the Emirates Stadium is roughly 500 million pounds including add-ons. Arsenal signed an agreement to pay off this debt over a long term, roughly being 20-25m per annum. If this agreement was circumvented in any way, it would incur major penalties, a risk Arsenal were not willing to take and haven’t. Therefore, the target date for the completion of paying it off is around the year 2031. Initially, through investments from companies like the Granada Media Group buying a stake worth 47million (5% shares) at the time, on top of Arsenal making a profit from selling our best players AT THE TIME (Overmars, Petit) we were able to go ahead with the construction. Arsenal secured a £260 million loan from a group of banks led by the Royal Bank of Scotland in April 2003. The cost of building the stadium had risen by 100m pounds during that period, forcing them to issue a bond scheme online via the website which raised several million, courtesy of the fans.

    Through various endorsement deals from Nike and others, Arsenal were able to continue the construction of the stadium, pay off the annual debt, and still generate a profit. The continual hiking of ticket prices and player sales made this a possibility. It is public knowledge that this accumulated profit has amounted to 70-80m up until now. For the past few years, Arsenal has been making a profit. In 2010, Highbury Square had been fully paid off and began generating profit. Emirates and Puma have signed some really lucrative deals with Arsenal accumulating to 320m pounds.

    Ladies and gentlemen, contrary to what you have believed about the stadium debt, Arsenal have been in a good position to buy world class players over the last 2 or 3 years. Instead of buying 2 or 3 top players every year, which would have bolstered our squad tremendously, given us a good chance to win silverware, given our existing world class players a reason to stay (RVP, Fabregas), increase fan support and ultimately make even more revenue, Arsene decided to go the cheaper route by buying 6 or 7 cheap players most of whom have ended up as deadwood, all the while sucking the life out of the wage bill and generally having little or no contribution to our club.

    We had to get RAPED by Man United 8-2 in order for Wenger to make some sub par signings 2 seasons ago. Those signings included Arteta, Mertesacker, Gervinho, Park and Santos. Let’s be honest, Arteta is the only one of those worth 2 bob. People can argue about Mertesacker, but in my opinion he is too slow and only looks good when Koscielny is playing beside him. (Look what a 35 year old Drogba did a few days ago). Basically we have had 4 players earning roughly 60-70k a week for 2 years who were written off as deadwood after a couple of games. Do the math, that is a whole lot of money gone to waste. I would rather Wenger have bought Mata and Cahill/Samba for a few million more, still have them in the squad today kicking arse and winning us trophies, than have a bunch of deadwoods doing nothing but leeching off the wage bill. The same applies to Djourou, Squillaci, Diaby, Denilson, Bendtner and a whole bunch of other players who just have not come to the party. Wenger is making a massive gamble every time he buys an unknown player, especially now that we have sugar daddy clubs on the rise.

    We have a saying in my home country ‘Goedkoop is duurkoop.’ Meaning – YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. 9/10 times, when you buy a big name, you get results. When buying unproven, cheap players the gamble is massive, and in our case, if they do end up becoming the next Henry, what do they do? THEY LEAVE ARSENAL, because of the very reasons I have mentioned above.

    What is even more worrying, is that if Arsenal fail to sign some big names soon and challenge for some silverware, we will have to say farewell to players like Cazorla, Kossie, Wilshere etc. It is time Wenger realizes he cannot keep giving us fans and players false hopes in pretending we are strong enough to challenge for titles with our current mediocre squad. The players and us fans need some kind of reassurance that silverware, or at least ambition to win silverware, is around the corner. It is public knowledge we have 70m to spend without repercussion. Arsene, please do yourself and us fans a favour AND SPEND IT ON TOP PLAYERS NOW!!! I would hate to write this article again same time, next year.

    And I stand by my view that Arsenal knew that, but by making a bid or two could convince their supporters they were at least trying to make world class signings.

    Your fpl link suggests otherwise.


    No, I am on 159 points.


    I am not disputing that, I was merely saying that your linked FF team states 90pts.

    Unfortunately I totally agree. I got shot down for suggesting Arsene could be scared to win ie buy that forward, GK and DM that they needed....


    Heard someone on the radio speculating how different life would have been if they had offered £50m for Suarez rather than annoy Liverpool with the £40,000,001 bid. I think he would have been sold for that bearing in mind his status at that time. If only.......


    Is it that Wenger was scared to buy or is it that he still has faith in the players he has so sees no need to buy? :?

    I actually think in light of what John Henry said that Arsenal's bid for Suarez was quite smart and well-informed. I'm not sure you can legislate for a club effectively breaking the law by telling Suarez and Arsenal they can f*** off because they don't give a shit what the contract says. If they took that attitude, would they have sold for £50m? Unlikely imo.

    None of the stories was complimentary unless you find solace in swear-words.

    So ignore the media’s gripes about being slagged off or banned by Davies. That goes with the territory. Just listen to his peers.

    Davies’s stroppy, belligerent character often offended them.

    There is a good manager in there somewhere, as occasional runs show, but Davies needs to address his myriad personality flaws. Until then, good riddance.


    Clearly Davies is a horrible little man with a giant chip on his shoulder.


    Normally if a manager gets sacked 2 points out of the play offs with 9 games to go there would be uproar slamming the decision. But this just goes to show that he has no friends left either in the game or the media.

    Made the same mistake in many teams :evil: but if you want "season over" how about a 3-5-2 with :roll:

    Image


    It seemed a reasonable gamble at the time with the extra Man City games in the league and a guaranteed Semi Final. I thought the Negredo transfer over Sturridge I did in most teams was bad but this is a disaster.

    Hardly any Yayas in my teams too which has made this weekend season over.

    Before this weekend
    1 team top 100, 2 more top 200.
    Top of Newcastle fans League.
    3rd in Swansea fans league.
    Doing well in egg league (2nd in division 2 and 3rd in all egg leagues)
    3rd in Fiso £25 league
    3rd/4th in Fiso league
    Over half of my 30 teams in the top 10,000

    Now I have dropped more than I ever can remember after one weekend in any season. I dont even have a team in the top 500 anymore and only one in the top 1000. I can't even be bothered to check how far I have dropped in all the superleagues. Complete disaster costing me the chance I had of cashing on TFF this year and I can say that I have now lost all interest in this season.

    My own fault for going for it in too many teams. It would not have been as bad if I had just gone for it in a couple but one of several lessons learnt for next season. (another being do not ever drop Henry/Ronaldo and this season Suarez type players no matter how appealing the extra fixtures are :twisted: )
