Stan & Arsenal’s Summer Sales by Sean O’Hara
Gooners this is an article not about Arteta, his ‘maybe’ staff or our outgoing backroom staff needed replacing. This is about players needing to come in (ones we have been linked with) to see where we could end up heading into the coming season.
Now all of this has nothing to do with the coaching side of things, this is business, which is what we kind of are these days. Long gone are the days of Arsenal being ambitious enough to compete to win titles, instead our board members & owner all line their pockets handsomely.
Linked players below along with players possibly leaving, all this is kind of what we are supposed to believe could happen… Except for a winger coming in, i just threw that in there as we have no sort of width whatsoever.
Chambers Sokratis Soyuncu
Ozil Mhiki Mahrez/Martial
??Mahrez or Martial 35m?? = £137m
Perez 10m = £65m
*WAGES freed up also for new Arrivals! Per, Campbell & Jenk all gone, retiring or free. £70-£80m Nett Spend. Our usual low enough budget to work with.
Elneny (Niles also)
Santi (pay as play) Exp
Boss (pay as play) Exp
1 Leno / 2 Cech
Chambers, Mavropanas, Sokratis, Boss, Soyuncu.
Bellerin, Monreal, Kolasnic
(Niles & Chambers cover also)
CDM – Seri & Elneny
CM – Santi, Ramsey & Wilshere (Niles)
AM – Mhiki & Mesut
Mahrez or Martial, Aubameyang, Lacazette, Welbeck & Nketiah
Something along the lines of this (bar a winger) is what we are being linked with, and with a budget like ours this would be a really good start to our rebuilding. Plenty of youth in there with a few experienced heads around the dressing room. No matter who comes in Manager/Coach wise they have to coach & that’s it. Transfers are up to the three wise men in Ivan, Raul & Sven!
Id be happy for whoever comes in to have this sort of squad at Arsenal but will never get my hopes up with Arsenal as contenders whilst ConManStan owns majoriry shares. Why he is still here is beyond me. Whatever outcome comes from all this is on him, time for him to step up for this once great club or step aside.
Something to discuss, share your opinions on who you would sign, sell or keep at the club with our budget! I’ll leave it on this; As this is going to be a bumpy ride whoever takes over for a while, we all need to get behind him & the club for this summer!
