    Anywho...more Yedlin rumors. Apparently Spurs have entered the race and are now the Favorites.


    Wonder when his statue goes up at OT...

    Official Yedlin rumour...he's not going to Liverpool

    So recent rumours are now: no Yedlin (Manquillo) and two of Reus, Kono and...(wait for it) Falcoa

    Sure...works for me.



    Reports coming out earlier today that stated he is perfectly OK staying Seattle if the right situation doesn't present itself.


    So he lacks ambition...

    I think he has a different type of ambition than you want him to have.

    Staying in MLS makes him the face of the league. He is a really easy player to sell to the general public.

    He's a right back Smurf....right backs aren't the face of any league

    He may have his reasons for wanting to stay (personally I found the quote bland and professional. He will jump when the "right offer" comes along. Nothing more. I was just winding you up)

    Anyways...Yedlins good for the MLS and vice versa...the "face" of the league is a bit of a stretch.

    Falcao ;)

    Not really sure that's a great idea. That wouldn't be less than 60M€ (Monaco purchased him for that price last season), and he is coming off of a serious knee injury.

    I mean they are all faces Smurf...

    He appears in various highlights with other players from the USMNT as ads for upcoming games. Simple marketing don't you think?

    Anyways...he will move on when the right offer comes. This means any offer that has come (if any did) had conditions.

    I'd say a winter loan is his next step

    Liverpool have also appeared to have entered the running for Falcao.

    Oh and it seems Daniel Agger reluctantly wants out of Liverpool and Arsenal appear interested.

    Agger will go to Spain. Liverpool won't be in the business of helping a rival.

    Falcoa seems off to Madrid (which seems odd given their current striker depth). Would mean Di Maria is off somewhere.

    Reus is the golden ticket. Haven't seen an Arsenal link to him. Wouldn't make a ton of sense for them given the Sanchez buy anyways. I don't think Dortmund are ready to be done with him. We can hope I suppose.

    Here's your link Si: http://metro.co.uk/2014/08/07/arsenal-l ... s-4824157/

    Arsenal apparently put a bid in for him before his injury and that resulted in Arsenal turning their attention to Sanchez.

    I don't know a lot about Yedlin, or what Spurs' plans are for him, but I would assume he would be the #2 right back behind Walker. We needed a player to fill this role and I would imagine he'll see quite a lot of playing time (unless we get knocked out of all the cups early on). The fee I've heard is $3.5m, rather than Euros, but even if it is Euros that sounds like a good price as far as Spurs are concerned. We'll probably get more for selling Naughton.

    Cavani is the only player that I like on Doha Saint-Germain team. This guy is full of class!

    Let me tell a story about him. Last year, after a game against Bordeaux, he promised that he would offer his shirt to a disabled kid. At the end of game, he went on the stand and gave up his shirt. That was a class act. Besides, he is really humble, and he is a team player.

    So yeah, get him! He doesn't deserve to be on this team.

    No they won't. They're not better than Arsenal, Liverpool, Everton, Chelsea or City. 6th is the best they can hope for.

  • So, Celtic showed that you can be humiliated with a 6-1 aggregate and still advance cause an ineligible player made a 3 minute appearance.

    Arsenal's path to the Champions League group stage goes through Turkey again. Not the worst draw, it's probably the most manageable one.

    I'm going for a close 2-1 Arsenal win. City is missing way too many key players for this match. Even if it's a "glorified friendly", I feel Arsenal will take this game a bit more seriously than City will.

  • Easy peasy lemon squeezy 3-0 win by Arsenal. Even if City didn't play their best squad that was still a very poor performance by them. Arsenal took this game seriously, as I had expected, City didn't and were taken behind the wood shed. I thought the game would be closer. Calum Chambers has really been impressive at center back and might actually be the pick of the bunch of the Southampton departures, too early to tell, but like I said, he's been highly impressive.

    Also, that goal by Giroud... jawdropping!

    I'll take City just to be different Gate but I imagine Arsenal is revved up for this one



    Coutinho.....my body is not ready....

    He's going to be our star man this year, no doubt. Supposedly the Moreno deal is waiting until after the Super Cup on Tuesday, then he's ours. After that, 2 strikers or a striker plus a winger and we'll be set.

    On the charity shield, Arsenal just look like they want it more, as evidenced by the scoreline. Fair play though, it's nice to start the season with a trophy get. They do pretty much look like the same team as last year though (Arsenal do).


    I was in the car so had to keep it short... But this was reminiscent of our finest home blitzes from last season. Coutinho was incredible, Sterling dashing and Sturbridge at his best. Henderson chipped in his usual rampant energy while Lovren stabalized the back line (finally?) and chipped in with a goal.

    Manquillo was very strong in his debut. With Moreno do Wednesday I'm excited for our new back line.

    Dortmund wasn't all that interested to be fair but they're still a plenty solid side. Great warm up.

    Striker and a winger....

  • Uncle Si wrote:Chambers over Lovren? Nah, Gate...

    Didn't see the match but I imagine your summary is spot on. One came to play one didn't...


    Here's the reason I said that. Yet again he was played in the middle since Mertesacker is due to return tomorrow. Throughout the match he was incredibly intelligent in his decision making and positioning. He showed a great deal of maturity especially for a 19 year old. The fact that this was a big game for Arsenal and he was making his official club debut in a position he's not fully used to playing in makes this all the more impressive. He played with the poise and maturity of a 27 year old veteran in the game and showed what he is capable of. Lovren is probably gonna be the best buy out of the Southampton sales in the immediate future, but Chambers has shown in the preseason and in the Community Shield, that he has an astonishing amount of potential and he could prove to be a massive signing in the future.

  • Everything I've read suggested he was spot on today. Something to be excited about I'm sure.

    Equally excited about Lovren considering how dire our back line was last season.

    Either way Southampton has been gutted. Poor Clyne is just sitting and waiting

  • Arsenal normally put 3 names up on separate Twitter posts asking fans who they think were the man of the match by retweeting the players name. Two of the 3 goalscorers were there, Cazorla and Ramsey, and Chambers was the 3rd option. At this point in time, Cazorla and Ramsey have a combined 4.8k retweets, Chambers has 6.4k. So I'm not the only one, a lot of people were impressed by Calum today.

    all that money left for a winger and a striker....


    seriously very good deal though for us. very good young player to add.

    Wing back depth is something else... someone has to go: Flanno (think he stays), Enrique (think he goes), Johnson (think he may go), Kelly (gone to Crystal Palace), Wisdom (on loan), and two very good players coming up through the academy.

    sure he is...

    Mauro Icardi next up for Liverpool. Decent striker for Inter (a bad Inter side). There's the whole Maxi Lopez thing, which is just strange. only played in 22 games last year as well

    dont suppose Nog has any insights on him?

    I don't closely watch italian championship to tell you any insights about Icardi (I sometimes watch some Roma games though with my italian friend). But since I love River Plate (not as much as Marseille) I can tell you more about Maxi... Another talented player that never apply himself enough to become great ;)
