Arsenal STUNNED by LAUGHABLE price of transfer target!!

I think we can safely say that Arsene Wenger will not be pursuing this one of the multitude of Arsenal transfer rumours flooding the football media at the moment. Not unless the Frenchman’s new found willingness to change his team tactics represents a seismic shift in his personality that is.

We all know that the prof is as careful with the money he spends on the Arsenal squad as he would be if it was coming out of his own pocket. So while he may have proved that he is not scared to spend big money transfer fees on the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, the suggestion in a Metro report that it would cost around £30 million to get the young Hull City defender Andrew Robertson to the Emirates is laughable.

The Hull boss said, “Luke Shaw went from Southampton to Manchester United after just one season in the top flight for £30m, and I rate Andy on a par with him as a young player with bags of ability and potential.

“We have already had calls from clubs asking to be kept informed about his situation, and it might become inevitable that he goes.”

The defender may have had a pretty good season for the Tigers but if his value has rocketed so much from the £2.85 million that Steve Bruce paid Dundee United for him last summer, I must have missed something. The only way that we are all going to be spared from this and more crazy transfer stories is for Wenger to act quickly and sign the players that Arsenal need as soon as possible.

How likely is that Gooners?

  1. Hahaha for a no name defender.

    Not even well known attacking talents go for that fee.

    But he is English and we all know you have to over pay, even if it is get someone average.

    I guess English talent is so poor managers in this league will pay it. Something really needs to change to improve the talent, this why English teams seldom win CL.

    1. That is not trolling, but is the mere truth.

      It’s no surprise Spain dominated world football while Barca dominated League.
      Or that Germany won WC while Bayern and BVB excelled.

      1. The champions league is more difficult for English team’s for loads of reasons.

        No mid season Christmas break
        2 domestic cups everyone else has 1
        People like Sanchez & Ozil have spoken about how much more physical the PL is and how you have to give much more every game.
        German teams have 4 less league games.

        1. Also English players cost a lot because every team has to have a certain number of English players The talent pool is small so the best British players cost money. I think this is why so many English clubs bring in top foreign youngsters once they reach 16 so they can also be classed as homegrown. To me there seems to be more good English players than there was a few seasons ago but still not enough. Wenger has definitely done well we’ve got some of the best British players.

        1. Yeh. Messi skinning him alive.

          To be fair he could do that to anyone.
          Vidal has more ink than a giant squid!

  2. What do you know Vidal is playing as the #10 like I’ve been trying to tell you guys

  3. The only team capable of stopping Barca were knocked out by them (Bayern), that should of being the final.

  4. Vidal isn’t going to make it to halftime.

    Arsenal need Lacazette, Kondogbia and Cech to even have a chance against this Barca squad.

    1. I love Arsenal but we have zero chance against them 99 times out of 100.

      Different league.

      1. Anyone can beat anyone. We’re very unlikely to ever have a player like Messi we don’t have the money to buy a front 3 like they have I don’t think anyone could buy that. We’ve beat them in the past with teams not as good as the one we have now improve it again we can compete with anyone.

        1. We could have potentially bought one : Dybala, now a Juve player.

          Of course there is the Messi Factor! But they still have Neymar and Suarez (40M+ £1 worth).

          They have, like it or not unlike AFC (and many others) a great European heritage (let’s not talk la decimal winning RM).

          Of course anyone can beat anyone but as I said 99 out of a 100 they will beat us.

          Why? Greater ambition & Greater investment in their team and focus on success on the pitch.

          1. yeah just give up? are you joking? it is football. sure barca, real and Bayern have strong teams and squads but this is what it is all about. building upto something. creating something you never thought could be. hoping and dreaming.

            why be hopeless and just give in?

            1. I never gave in. I made a statement that where we are today we have no chance of competing with the likes of Barca (fact of life).

              Until we invest, and have the ambition like them and win 5 UCLs we are simply not comparable.

              Wake up and smell the coffee..

      2. I think when Messi picks up the ball in the final third and starts jinking toward the goal every opposing supporter in the stadium and fan watching TV around world takes a deep breath, try to look away (but you can’t), offer quick prayers to the gods and have “oh f**k, oh f**k, oh f***k banging round their brains uncontrollably.

        No other player does that – not for me anyway. With a bit of luck and application Neymar or Ronaldo etc can be contained or nullified or just sulked out of the game. Messi, when he picks his moments, is as close to properly unplayable as there has been.

      3. Last 2 times we’ve played them at home we have won one and drawn one. So not impossible and odds a bit better than a 1 in 100.

        1. Thanks (yawns) for those remarkable stats..:)

          & How many European cups do we have in our trophy cabinet?

          I think you get the point I was trying to make.


  5. Manure were absolutely crazy to pay 30 mill for shaw if hes worth 30 then nacho must be 50

  6. Barcelona have the best front three in the world better than Brazil Ronaldinho, Rivaldo and Ronaldo.

  7. We need a quality striker like Suarez, Aguero. We have no chance of winning BPL or UCL with
    Giroud upfront. Even Henry club legend knows it and some of the fans here are dumb thinking Giroud is good enough for us.

    1. Its amazing that so many Arsenal fans genuinely believe that OG or TW are good enough to lead the line next season.

      13 points behind Chelsea, a place behind an average Chitty team and just edging out one of the worst Manure teams on record.

      But s fit Walcott and OG all season will…..

      Give it a rest, this team is simply not good enough in the striking department to challenge for the EPL or Champions League.

      1. Woeful Welbeck scores a hatrick in first few games but Giroud cant score a hatrick in 3 seasons shows u Giroud is not enough.

      2. what is this dumb and dumber. 1st Walcott didn’t get game time until the last two games. seems fine to me. 2nd city aren’t average. with class like yaya, aguero, silva they aren’t anyones average. 3rd if a class forwards comes in who is going to say “no, we have better”. we work with what we have.

      3. I think you need to separate out what is needed to win the PL and that which is required to win the UCL. If all the yap on here about striker quality is an essential prerequisite to win anything is to be taken as gospel then we or no-one else are going to improve on Messi/Suarez/Neymar for the forseeable future so why fret about that?

        As for the PL Giroud, Alexis, Welbeck and Walcott scored more between them in all comps than City’s forwards (Aguero, Bony, Dzeko and Jovetic), Uniteds’ (Rooney, Falcao, RvP and Wilson) and Chelsea’s (Costa, Remy, Drogba and Hazard). 113 goals and 21 different goal scorers suggests that goalscoring is not our biggest or most immediate obstacle to winning the PL. We only scored 2 less goals in the PL than the Invincibles managed in 2004.

        Instead of fixating on replacing Giroud to get maybe 4-6 extra goals a season (and contrary to accepted popular belief there are very few if any supporters who would be upset if an upgrade came in) why can’t we a bit more imaginative about this; conceding 10 less goals could have won us the title just as easily, further refining our balance between defence and attack, building on the cohesion and fledgling confidence we have built-up may, just may, bring bigger benefits than ripping the spine of the team out and starting again. And what about running the idea that Wenger will be gone in a couple of seasons and he would rather do this by stealth to hand over something decent to his successor. I know that is not appealing to those who want it now but hey, shit happens and life is a bummer.

        “All the pieces matter..” Lester Freamon, 2002.

    1. He had a buy out clause we met the clause they wouldn’t sell. I’ve heard more was offered they wanted more that we could afford. The truth will be in Mr Wenger’s book one day.

      1. It’s simple..he wanted to go to Barca after he knew they were interested.

        Think it’s well documentaries that Gerard tried his best also to dissuade him from joining us.

    1. We have to suck it up and think maybe never.

      Was so gutted when Chelski became the 1st Winners of the UCL from London.

    2. @moneytalks,
      I do not think we will win it in the next 5 years. At least not under our current manager. How on earth did we go out to Monaco?
      We need a great team and a bit of luck like what happened with Chelsea. But getting a bit of luck will probably come when we have a great team. Few teams win by luck, more teams win because their teams are great. We do not have a great team.
      We cannot expect to win the champions league with a main striker who cannot even do a shimmy or any sort of dribbling.

  8. Pogba man of the match, hands down. Forgot his man in the first goal but didn’t lose a single duel. Made Rakitic his bitch all game long!

    1. Barca played well as a team. No one was stand out from their team but still won comfortably.
      Imagine if Messi and Suarez were playing well.

      1. you did watch the match? messi WAS standout. neymar had a good 1st half and suarez looked good for a player coming from injury.

      2. They won deservedly but thought they did a passable impression of us at our worst defensively when they went 2-1 up. Juve could and should have equalised in those 10-15 mins. Barca all over the shop with no sign of shutting them out. I suppose with MSN up front they ain’t too bothered whatever happens and would be quite happy to go again if necessary.

    2. Not sure if you are on the wind-up or not but fair enough if that is your opinion. It is a good job I’ve seen plenty of Pogba in other games in the past couple of seasons because solely on tonights’ evidence I wouldn’t take Pogba + cash for Ramsey.

  9. Barcelona champions fair enough.
    But as for Neymar and Suarez constantly rolling around on the floor throughout the game. Got a bit tedious
    Roll on next season

  10. Yes, now that is a laughable transfer story. One of the few articles without blind worshiping of certain players who aren’t good enough for this club and the manager.

    1. Next Ramsey or Bellerin will join Barca in 2-3 season if they continue to perform well sadly.
      Thankgod Sanchez wont join Barca or Real.

    1. It doesn’t make sense for him to be captain as he hardly plays, but Wenger is loyal

      I would give the Captaincy to Mertsacker
