    Arsenal now expected to sign Koscielny by the end of the week, possibly in the next 24 hours, for around 10m.

    And Moratti has confirmed that United have made an approach for dear Wesley. So much about that makes no sense and just won't happen, but I'm going to allow myself an indulgent moment of hope. Ok, I'm done.

    I ask, since he will be the right back for Gold Coast United in the A-League.
    Curtis was a strange one - he was United's youth team captain and held up as one of the club's brightest prospects in the late '90s, being tipped as a near-certain future England international too, and then never quite kicked on. Played a few games, was in and out of the side for a couple of seasons and then gradually faded from first-team reckoning. We got decent money from Blackburn as I recall when we sold him but I've not really seen anything of him since he played a couple of games down the road for QPR a few years back.

    Yeah, pretty much above, trying to remember if he missed a chunk through injury, but i'm not sure he did. Was very highly rated as a youth though.

    Seriously, all jokes aside. This is one of the best threads in CW. Things getting debated in detail is fine but 90% of the thread readers/posters seem to be sick of all the bollocks in this thread lately. I'm not blaming anyone or singling anyone out just calling it as I see it.

    Where's the love?
    Its fine, there is always the division 3 thread.

    A very tenuous claim. Though I don't much rate Berbatov he at least has a reasonable enough record to speak of.

    Confirmed as a done deal this afternoon, BTW.

    BBC Sport - Football - Barcelona fail to pay player wages for June

    Maybe some good news for Arsenal in their quest to keep Cesc with the news that Barcelona failed to pay the players wages for June and have some financial problems.

    Still can't get my around the statement from the new chairman that they are going to release 50 million euros + any transfers recieved for new signings yet can't pay the day to day bills

    Looks like financial mismanagement in football isn't just restricted to England.

    Got to love their arrogance insisting that they won't pay more than 30m for Cesc, get ****ed you ****s. If Yaya Toure is going to City for 27m we'll be taking a great deal more than that for one of the best midfielders on the continent thanks.

    People have been saying "it'll be anounced in the next 24hours" since Saturday. So nice to wrap it up.

    Whilst I envy you for the Wesley stories, I have it on good authority that duffer had to change his boxers on sight of this. Despite the fact it's on goal.com

    I saw this as well. In a sense I hope it's true, but in another I really hope not (basically, if Cesc goes, let's go for him, if he stays, I'd rather we didn't bother, as the last thing we need is another midfielder who's good on the ball and can pass it around nicely but adds little in defence). Such a gun though, I just really hope he doesn't end up at somewhere like Man Utd or Liverpool, as I would rather not have to start hating him.

    Ha ha yeah I saw that one too, but considered it so beyond the realms of any possibility that I didn't bother mentioning it.

    Got no issues with us signing him, as long as we get another center back and a goalkeeper as well. Would rather a backup for Song as well. If that happens it'll be our best transfer window ever tbh.
    You're right in saying, positionally, he's the last player we need. But in terms of quality, he's exactly the sort of player we should be going after.
