Thought I'd start an AFC thread - I know there's a a huge number of Arsenal fans here!
Thoughts on the transfer window so far? Been getting pissed off at people who are angry we didn't sign Schneiderlin. Had we actually signed Coquelin for £25m instead of recalled him from a loan spell, people would be singing in the streets about how good the transfer was. Coq is gun.
Agree, gooner fans love the coq.
Coqs good but Schneiderlin's better
Arsenal need a new DM but in a different mould to Coquelin. Not sure Schneiderlin was the answer to that.
To be honest I am happy with Coquelin as first choice. Who watched the Singapore XI game?
Personally I'd have gone with 'The Arse loves the coq', but a noble effort nonetheless.
Want a better passer as an option for games against weaker teams. Wenger might just use some combination of Arteta/Wilshere there though.
Not convinced AW likes JW deep at all
Lots of rumours going about he's set for some crunch talks. I'll admit I don't rate Wilshere that highly at all... he holds onto the ball far far too long, and I can see that being something Wenger in particular would really hate
If we don't sign someone Wenger might go for the 4-3-3/4-1-4-1 with Özil wide and Ramsey and Wilshere/Cazorla in front of a DM again. Or he'll just play Arteta over Coq. Either will boil piss on twitter and the arsenal fan tv videos. I think realistically they've gotta bring someone in though, unless Wenger has seen something of Arteta in pre season that I haven't.
Who's a good option for it? Illaramendi maybe?
Agreed. Admittedly I'd love to see it get a go, he's looked awesome there for England.
Now that they're over their FFP woes I wouldn't mind ripping City off for Wilshere.
Can't help but like the way Chamberlain plays more than Wilshere. Both talented as hell, though. Granted, lots of people don't think Chamberlain can play a central role but I am backing him in.
Chamberlain is a much better player than Wilshere imo. I think the latter would do a better job in the holding role but beyond that get the Ox in
Looks like Cazorla and Ramsey will play in a 4-2-3-1 this season. Cazorla probably converted like Arteta was in 2012. Interesting, can see the logic too it. Would prefer we signed someone though.
Where does that leave Coq though?
Still in the arse.
