Dragging the bottom of the barrel aren't you?

Should we be interested in anyone that wasn't in last years squad or like Sanogo used to be?

Has the tea lady left?

You can be a right miserable sod bubblechris. Lighten up. Now where are your cheese-based footballers to give us a bit of entertainment?

Noted post number for about five months into season when your zen-off with Hoy comes to a sharp end.

Anyway listen. guys, I really get it. You're just too calm and sensible to wet the bed over a football team and it's not - you're quite correct - like living under siege in Aleppo. Some people take the whole thing a bit far and are embarrassing. Perhaps they should try a bit of sudoku, make a few lists about long-gone players, some gentle puns involving types of cheese, and express their lust for big bosomed stars of the screen. It might get the blood pressure down I agree.

Doesn't alter the fact Wenger's an arrogant stubborn egotistical d******* and the board are an absolute bunch of incompetent *%^@.

I absolutely will change my stance on this as soon as we lose a game.
Why wait until then? Best to get into the negative swing of things well before any games are played. It sets you up nicely for the season ahead and the awful predictability of underperforming in the league against small-time, under-spending clubs like Chelsea, United, City, Liverpool and Spurs. An early exit from FA Cup-Half Empty competition will feel all that much better too.

Well, seems we have our striker. A few years too late but at least its a significant buy for a much needed position. If we get the winger and LB, and manage to keep Bellerin, we're going to have a squad that has skill and a shed load of pace down the flanks.


Are you psychic? Any links?

I doubt there are many link, sensory or esp.

Good morning all. So the transfer window opens today - and I'm sick of it already.
But also today one of my favourite sporting events, the Tour de France begins, so I'll be settling down to 3 weeks of that and hoping that when it ends we've done some significant business.


Gidday Brom ... I like the Tour de France ..... the scenery is great

and it's somehow nice sitting back in the comfort of a lounge chair with a coffee and a muffin watching a bunch of guys straining ligaments , lungs etc etc as they make their way up the foothills of the Pyrenees .

Transfer window Lacezette will join tomorrow , next week , next month , next year .... we had the same last year with Benzema .

Gidday Kiwi. Agreed, love the mountain stages when these blokes really have to push to the limit. I also enjoy these survival type programmes where someone is freezing their nuts off in the arctic or alternatively fending off enormous insects in some godforsaken jungle with 100% humidity. Watching other people suffer (when it's their choice of course) is always entertaining.
Bernard, just to keep you up to date, today the Tour de France is leaving Germany and heading for Belgium :icon_mrgreen1:

You are now starting to share the dream. I knew I would get through if I persisted. It has not gone unnoticed by me that you refer to them as Liz and Phil - I smell a family connection here. Cousins or second cousins or just close friends. Or did you meet them at the fox hunt - Sir Chipps is that you?

"Arsenal tell Alexis Sanchez he will not be joining Manchester City as Arsene Wenger refuses to sell stars to rivals

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/footba ... z4leq44pmf

Choice 1 AW sticks to his guns and refuses to sell Sanchez. We lose £50million and Sanchez sits out the early games.

Choice 2 AW is forced to sell Sanchez and AW leaves the club in protest.

What would you prefer?

If it's leaving Germany the quality of the tracks will fall. Let's hope we beat Chile later today to make up for it. Talking of Chile, I didn't know they had stages of the Tour de France in South America. I know the Amazon jungle doesn't extend to Chile, but when does it go to South America so the bike riders can spend their time "fending off enormous insects in some godforsaken jungle with 100% humidity." The only jungle I've heard of in France is the Calais jungle, which was simply a name given to a migrant camp there.

EDIT: Actually I've just had a brilliant idea. Move the whole bike ride to Germany and call it the 'Reise von Deutschland'. The uphill bit could be done in the Alps instead of the Pyrenees. Add a bit of class to it.

Number 2. Losing £50m so he can join City next summer on a free transfer looks pure idiocy to me especially, unless something quite astonishing happens, as I doubt we'll win the Premier League whether Sanchez stays or goes. I'd say that even if Wenger doesn't leave the club in protest, although that would be an added bonus.

Funny enough my real-life surname (as opposed to this cybershow) has a royal connection, but apart from some of our Irish posters, I suspect I am the least monarchist of anybody on here.

As good old Tom Paine noted in his Business Plan aka Common Sense: 'There is another and great distinction for which no truly natural or religious reason can be assigned, and that is the distinction of men into KINGS and SUBJECTS. Male and female are the distinctions of nature, good and bad the distinctions of Heaven; but how a race of men came into the world so exalted above the rest, and distinguished like some new species, is worth inquiring into, and whether they are the means of happiness or of misery to mankind...To the evil of monarchy we have added that of hereditary succession; and as the first is a degradation and lessening of ourselves, so the second, claimed as a matter of right, is an insult and imposition on posterity. For all men being originally equals, no one by birth could have a right to set up his own family in perpetual preference to all others for ever, and tho' himself might deserve some decent degree of honours of his contemporaries, yet his descendants might be far too unworthy to inherit them. One of the strongest natural proofs of the folly of hereditary right in Kings, is that nature disapproves it, otherwise she would not so frequently turn it into ridicule, by giving mankind an ASS FOR A LION.'

Bernard, I'm not sure you read my post correctly. Still, you may have stumbled on a great idea to have an 'amazon jungle stage' of the Tour. The dense undergrowth, killer snakes etc would certainly test the riders. I'll email the organisers.

Jeez Hoy that will put some interest into the forum with a guessing game on the surname. I don't mind that quote being very anti monarch myself. I recall a time in my early 20s when God Save the Queen was still the national anthem of Oz and I refused to stand at a function. One person seated in 200 drew some comment.

Enough media outlets reporting Lacazette traveling to London to complete his signing for us for anywhere between £45-52m. I haven't seen him in french football only the champions league, he seems like the all round striker we've been missing since van persie left. He's got 113 goals in the last 4 seasons, 26 years old and has just had the best season of his career. If we're being realistic about our transfers then on paper this is as very good signing.

Assuming we sign him, he, Giroud and Welbeck are not a bad strike corp. Throw in another season of development for Iwobi.

If we get that Monaco winger, we're formidable going forward. Remains to be seen if our new formation with 3 at the back remains better than the previous one.
