Arsenal news-You’re having a laugh by BA

I just heard that there has been a fire at the home of Arsenal striker Robin van Persie. Police suspect Arsene.

Sorry about that but I have just read something really funny. Jan Vertonghen expects Tottenham to be challenging for the title next season. He is so impressed with his team mates in training that he is confident that Spurs will be up there at the end. He is in for a rude awakening, but he is entitled to his opinion.

Talking of opinions, I am sick of reading about people having a go at Arsene Wenger for not spending fortunes on “top” players. Andy Carroll anyone? Liverpool are about to lose £20 million on him, Chelsea are still wondering what happened to Fernando Torres, and Man City are selling Adebayor to the Spuds for another £20 million loss. We did alright out of that deal, remember.

Manchester United were held to ransom by Wayne Rooney but they were happy to keep him because he was young and the team were built around him. Buying a big name player is no guarantee of success, Football is full of players who have failed to continue their success elsewhere.

Van Persie took years before it all clicked into place and he could fall flat in a different system, it has happened before. Wenger knows this and he knows what he is doing. People say that Messi is only as good as he is because Barcelona are set up to suit him. I still hope that we can keep van Persie but I don’t think we should be pushing the panic button and buying the most expensive striker we can find if he doesn’t.

    People are laughing now, but spuds are slowly improving season by season, so keep a good eye on them!

    As for RVP, the only place he will slot in nicely is Juventus, he won’t be able to settle at Man City or anywhere else, sorry but its the harsh truth.

    It took years to bring out the best in him, the current team was built around him, but like I have said from the start of the ‘RVP Saga’ wait until the transfer window has closed or until his contract has been renewed, too many articles focusing on RVP, we at Arsenal are never nor will be a 1 man team!

    RVP be in an Arsenal jersey next season or not we will still be prepared!

    with modric gone….spurs will b finding it tough to qualify for top four
    with Liverpool n newcastle strengthening.

    vertonghen doesn’t know Tht English league is:-D
    let the season start we’ll see teams like everton n swansea teaching English footballing lessons to tongs…

    n
    rvp….he may not b as good as he’s to arsenal.
    but to arsenal he’s of immense value
    coz he’s at arsenal since he was a kid.
    he’s well settled into arsenal play style n has the experience…

    so it will b hard to find any replacements
    Tht would fit in directly.

    n wenger has already bought giroud
    so
    wenger needs a playmaker n a stopper…

    Djorou cant be sold because of homegrow rules. What arsenal really needs is not platoon of players but to keep the current ones and buy just Mvilla. The reason we finish 3rd last season was due to late recruitment of players that led to late blending and thus those early poor results and injuries to diaby,wilshere,sagna,gibbs and santos. Lets keep Rvp to the contract becuse by next season prince podol and gigi would have adapt to our system. Believe it or not,2012-13 is our year of at least one trophy due to the following reasons(1)we now have more expirencè players unlike before when our team were more of ‘boys’ than ‘men’.(2)i see wenger doing his best to win a trophy to catalyse Rvp to extend his contract next june and(3)virtually in every position we now have a reliable player and a capable substitue unlike before when our keeper was a joke and have only first eleven and thus very poor backup in case of injuries and suspension but the reverse is the case today,check this!-GK=szczesny,fabianski_now more expirence and less error prone,martinez: RFB-sagna,jenkinson,coquelin,konscieln: LFB-gibbs,santos,vermealen,coquelin: CB-vermealen,konscielny,metersacker,djorou,song,bartley,mvilla: DM-song,mvilla,coquelin,frimpong,diaby,arteta:BOX TO BOX MF-arteta,song,diaby,wilshere,lansbury: PLAYMAKER-wilshere,arteta,rosicky,diaby,ramsey,arshavin,eisfeld: RW-walcott,aoc,gervinho,ryodinho: LW-gervinho,podolski,ryodinho,arshavin:SR-rvp,giroud,podolski,walcott.

    Some people (BA) need to get real. Been a Gooner and hated Spuds for nearly 50 years but sometimes you have to be realistic. They have made some good signings and finished a point behind us last season. They won’t miss Modric as much as we will miss RVP. I Fu*king hate em, but fear em all the same.

    I keep reading about Ganso, Affellay, Lewis Holtby, M’Vila and Biglia. Has everybody forgotten about the pressing need to resign Walcott and i believe that Koscielney are in their final year of their contracts. They need to be resolved soon. RVP has but gone, but don’t worry. After Wright there was Henry, followed by Adebayor and then RVP took the role. We’ve got Podolski, Giroud, Gervinho and Park. All of whom could may well be the replacement. Finally, we need to sign a keeper (Lloris) to give competition to Szczesney and a few defenders, Debuchy as cover for Sagna and Yanga Mbaya for the centrebacks.
    It’s ok screaming for loads of attacking options, but our defence has been shocking at times, it needs a shake up soon.

    .Mabiwa/sakho

    .Kevin Mirallas – the guy is fantastic, he is literally like ronaldinho or ronaldo but with less diving.

    if we keep rvp for another year he will turn 30 and his market value will decrease alot and he won’t be getting his 225k deal he will only be getting 160-180k cause of his age and if we keep him and offer him 130k he will stay cause no other club would give that much to a 30 year old and then we tie him down end of story(won’t get the respect)

    It is time we all learn from the past and start believing in Arséne Wenger and Arsenal. We were hit with the worst kind of injuries last term, started from 17th and yet finished third. City won just with gold difference with all the money spent. In the past ten years Liverpool and Spurs have been spending more than Arsenal, they have been buying quality players and yet we are always finishing on top of them. This is a proof that big spending does not work. Man City won the league but they spend ridiculously and the winning was not outstanding. They were lucky the useless QPR Captain was sent off it would have been a different story.

    Yes the team is built around Robin van Persie so he shines. I think right now Arséne Wenger wants to expand the number of strikers so anyone can score in the box. The team made Robin and it is not Robin that made the team. Without the Arsenal style Robin is completely empty. I am not saying he is a bad player but he is as good as Arsenal made him to be on a game. He lost more chances than any striker I know but the scored the most goals because we create more than five times the chances created by Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, NewCastle and Spurs.

    Finally there is a financial squeeze in the country, families are having tough and rough time with the recession and Man City is spraying money like they pluck in from a tree. This is sad.

    Forget the spuds. We need to focus on beating City and United. Tired of this fourth place race. City, United, Chelsea have all strengthened their squads tremendously. Arsenal has bought a replacement for RvP and another good winger. But is it enough to clinch the title this time?? I still think we need strengthening in our defense. Our problem last season was not because of the lack of goals, but because of how many we conceded. What the heck happened to Chris Samba…Arsenal should have snatched him up. I think Wenger needs to bring Bartley back from loan too, and promote Yennaris to Sagna’s backup. I’m also still not 100% satisfied with the LB situation. Santos is more of a winger/LAM, and Gibbs is still work in progress. Hopefully Wenger does something about this before the season starts.

    Have a good feeling though a bout this season. With Arteta, Wilshere back in MF, and perhaps even RvP staying, we could have an outside chance of winning it.

    personally I don’t think we should sell rvp yet, he has still got 12 months so why not keep him until january and sell him then, we won’t get as much but he will have to play we to keep clubs interested in him and we will also be able to make him ineligible for whichever club for the champions league for this season so if we keep him we will be able to use his ability as well as getting a bit of money for him and who knows, if we’re doing really well he may rethink his decision
