    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.
    Be interesting to see how UEFA react to that story, Barcelona being far and away their favourites and all that.

    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.
    Yeah probably true enough, like you say though, other positions have to be the priority. Reckon we still need another striker, the combination of Van Persie (great but can guarantee he will miss 60% of the season), Eduardo (you've not got it anymore son), Bendtner (not very good), Chamakh (unproven and potentially the next Adebayor) and Vela (looks promising but also another small player with lots of pace and skill but no muscle) isn't exactly the best looking lineup we could ever hope for.

    Oh and for mine, the best transfer window for Arsenal in my experience would have to be the time Pires, Wiltord and Lauren all signed. That was a truly epic time.

    Yeah, we'll only see another striker come in if Eduardo goes IMO. You're harsh on Bendtner though
    I think that those lot would struggle to miss with Arshavin, Cesc, Ozil and Nasri laying it on a plate for them every 2 minutes.

    The season you mention was awesome, but think about what I was saying we could have.
    A keeper, 2 center backs, a defensive midfielder, Ozil (and a striker?). As well as getting rid of Sylvestre.
    That's like all the improvements people have said we've needed over the last 3 years and offloading the biggest piece of deadwood ever.


    Oh and.. http://www.mirrorfootball.co.uk/news...cle517849.html lol.

    Apparently Joe Cole to Arsenal is done and dusted. Expect it soonish pending a medical. Staying London was the major motivation for him it was said.

    A solid enough midfielder good passer and tackler but lacks a bit of pace to go any further really. We have kept worse players than him though suprised he was released tbh.

    Interesting, we seemed to have fallen out of the race with Liverpool and Spurts still chasing. Will sit tight and wait.

    The overall debt levels in Spanish football are around the 3.2b euro mark according to an article I read recently. I posted the link a while back. That can't be sustainable or even true to some degree, because why the **** didn't Tenerife go bankrupt when they got relegated.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    This is why I pointed out that La Liga is in poor shape (despite having some fantastic players) in the "Is the English Premier League the best in the world?" thread. It seems club football as a whole is a bloated, financially unsustainable mess.

    A fairly dubious sign. Is going to be hilarious fun watching Arsenal next year if these sorts of rumours keep turning out to be true.

    Is just a knee problem that he has, was assessed by an independant doctor who said he was fine.
    We're stalling as we're still eyeing up Eduardo supposedly.
