    A side that didn't score that many goals last year, replacing Tevez and Ronaldo with Owen (ha) and Valencia (ha ha) will not make it any better.

    Mind you, Owen did actually have a better record than Berbatov last year all things considered (and cost 31m less)
    Would expect Berbatov to make some improvements on last year and I think Owen might suprise a few people, he is still a goalscorer and playing in a good side will do him the world of good. But yeah they need to make a couple more, think next season will be very close.

    Owen scored more league goals than Tevez in less games so he's an improvement there. Lessening the goals Ronaldo gave. Then Berbatov and Rooney will score more most likely with a different team setup giving them more opportunities and other players will be instructed to take more shots not to just pass to Ronaldo.

    Nasri/Rosicky and Van Der Vaart and Sniejder are totally different type of players.

    Always thought assigning an actual cash value to Eboue was stretching the bounds of credulity that bit too far, tbh.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Guess Arsene will turn his attention to some alternative now, I certainly hope so anyway.

    Zokora, Eboue, Adebayor, Silvestre. I wouldn't be able to watch us for fear of my head exploding from the pure ****ery wearing our kit.

    Whats the difference?. All are very skillful & versatile mid-fielders who can play as CAM or on either wing.

    Thats true, there are indeed some similarities, but Nasri and Rosicky are much more dynamic, driving force type players, whereas the two dutch lads are much more typical playmaker, edge of the area type players.

    Rosicky is perpetually injured and what has Nasri done so far?

    I can see Sneijder working out but van der Vaart for me is one of the most overrated footballers going. His knees went before his 21st birthday.

    Nas has showed bits and pieces but looks heavily awkward playing on the wings. I've said it a billion times that just because Pires succesfully made the transition to winger doesn't mean we can keep buying central attacking midfielders and lumping them out there.

    Arsene gets too clever for his own good at times, would love us to actually buy players who are specialists for where we want to play them.
