Here we go again! A quality player who can get us back in the top 4 and make us feared once again is about to slip through the cracks. The money is there to make the deal, but Uncle Scrooge is satisfied with what we now have. Are the supporters satisfied? Your thoughts?

Likelihood is its just rumours put out by the club to get people off Wenger's back for a while.

Maybe it's all smoke and mirrors. We've been down this road before, the final few days of the transfer period, and then nothing. You could be right about it being a diversion. Hope so.

It's the usual old transfer merry-go-round. Loads of hype over a quality player and then the let down. How many times have we been here before? Wenger is a penny-pinching ditherer. Other teams spend the money, we just sit and count ours.

We don't need Aubameyang. Iwobi is younger and better than him. Also, we have many young prospects coming through that compose what I like to call the 2020's core.

Younger? Yes. Better? Not by a longshot. Iwobi is solid in his defensive work rate, but lacks incisive passing skills and too often tries to dribble through 3 or 4 defenders. And his goal-scoring ability isn't even close !

Not really easy to get someone who's the most imp player in the opposition scoring 13 in 15 matches.

They obv want a replacement, maybe giroud. If giroud s wife doesn't want to move to Germany, it makes it difficult for dortmund to sell without getting a replacement

Don't expect great touches from aubemeyang. Lacazette had better choice control and movement than aubemeyang. What Aubameyang has is out and out pace. Finishing ability is comparable but aubs is taller and so should on paper very more headed goals.

Both are poacher types. They aren't gonna double past ppl, although aubemeyang does have pace, but he isn't like mbappe.

Don't be surprised if some of you get underwhelmed depending on expectations. He's no thierry henry if that's what is the expectation. He is slightly better than walcott.

Watch his games against the top teams like madrid in ucl and u will see how he struggles to keep the ball

If Giroud has reservation to go to Germany then include Welbeck in the deal. £50 m plus Welbeck is good enough I suppose. We were going to give Giroud on loan. As for Welbeck just let him leave.

I agree with this, I don't think our style suits Lacazette because he doesn't have space to make his runs in behind the defence and I don't think our style will suit Aubameyang for the same reasons.

Basically we lack of people who are willing to make forward runs so we end up having to play sideways passes all the time. Watch Man City, when they win the ball back there are at least 2 or 3 players sprinting forwards IN FRONT of the player with the ball. Watch Arsenal and when we win the ball back there might be 1 player jogging level with the player with the ball, so he has to stop and turn around and play it sideways or backwards. Maybe with Auba, Laca, Mhki and Ozil in the same team, we will get some more positive movement but I'm sure Wenger will coach it out of them.

This. Our lack of off the ball movement esp in moving forward positions has been a pbm ever since cesc was made the fulcrum. It killed off lyunberg as stated by pires and gilberto as cesc tended to slow the game down considerably.

Cesc is still better, we have gradually gotten slower and slower bringing it out from the back right from denilson, arteta, etc to the point that now we are snails compared to pires lyunberg viera era because of xhaka and elneny

This.

Cesc is one of the main reasons as to why Wenger changed our style from fast one touch Wengerball to a crappy version of tika taka that is crab football.

I can understand why Wenger would change our style for someone as talented as Cesc and build a team around him and I can also understand that due the new stadium we couldn't buy enough quality players to build an effective tika taka team at the time.

What I don't understand is why Wenger still insists with crab football even though it never worked, Cesc is gone and we no longer have to penny pinch.

Furthermore, Wenger then signed Ozil, a player who was never gonna be suited to crab football and so Wenger had the perfect chance to build a new team around Ozil and then Alexis and change our style from crab football to something faster, stronger and more blalanced, a style that suited and played to the strengths of both Ozil and Alexis, but Wenger is too stubborn for that.

(hell signing a good DM and a good fast striker after the signing of Cech in the summer of 2015 would not only been enough to change our style but would've made us finish above Leicester and win the title, we had the money to sign those players)

Thsts again not a good list considering that neymar was bought for 200 mn. Whatever list puts psg below us is equally absurd.

In case you haven't noticed, we have spent enough money and we can spend more. The pbm is the players bought using that money haven't done anything.

Its like buying torres for 50mn. Nacho monreal for 11mn, gabriel for 12 mn, mustafi for 30-35 and chambers for 15 something.

Tell me which player would you rate as a success if you had to pick one? Hard pressed to look beyond monreal who was the cheapest of that lot.

We bought sanchez for 35 mn when united bought martial for 30. We have enough money to spend on players we need. Theres no question about that.

But these lists are just absurd and click baits and they deliberately highlight the fact that we penny pinch our target used to inspiylte of being the x richest club etc.

If they are real journalists, they will highlight that we have been spending a lot recently without any of those signings actually working.

Aubamenyang is far better than Laca.

With Ozil, Wilshere and Mkhitaryan feeding him he's going to score loads.

Auba has much more mobility, presence and pace than Laca.

Laca is a good penalty box poacher, a classy composed finisher if he has the chances. I don't think he has missed any easy chances so far, at least he always hits the target. And he is still new to the team. he will be much better.

With a pacey Aubameyang alongside, it will create more space and opportunities for Laca.

I'd like us to also get Mahrez though, his trickery on the right wing will complete our three prong attack.

29 January, 2018 06:07
We will lose most games of we try to fit auba, laca, mahrez, mkhi and ozil in the same team. I'm not even taking about ramsey wilshere yet.

Auba is not as clinical as ppl think. He is quick and has good experience. Even sanchez is a more composed and better finisher than auba. So don't expect miracles.

We will still be relying heavily on Mkhitaryan and ozil to create chances. Got will frequently see auba missing posts in tight spaces. Hes no aguero or Lewandowski.

Thsts why i dont expect us to play both strikers in all the games.

This is a signing because we do struggle to finish chances and lacazette hasn't fired one we would have liked but don't expect changes over night.

He was going decent until the de gea game and the courtois game in quick succession.should have had at least 3 goals from those 2 games. After that he's been trying to strike the ball very hard rather than placing them

Aubameyang misses Dortmund team bus trial because of illness.


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has not testified as planned in the trial for the attack on the Borussia Dortmund team bus last April because of illness.

Aubameyang, who according to Sky sources is on the verge of joining Premier League side Arsenal in a £60m transfer, had been due to give evidence to a German court on Monday.

Lawyer Alfons Becker was quoted in the German paper Frankfurter Allgemeine, saying; "He will not testify today because he is ill."


Aubameyang's teammate Marc Bartra, who was injured in the attack suffering an open fracture of a forearm, did prepare a statement which was read out in court by his lawyer.

The Spaniard said: "I was scared to death. I feared never to see my family again…If I remember it, I'm not feeling well" (lost in translation - I believe he's said 'when I remember the attack, it makes me feel unwell'.


A 28-year-old known as Sergei W, is accused of the attempted murder of 28 members of Borussia Dortmund on April 11 last year but says he did not want, or intend to kill anyone.

Judges are currently arranging further dates to hear personal testimony from players who were on the bus, and have still to decide whether they will set another date for Aubameyang's evidence, or fine him for not appearing.

A private jet containing the Gabon international arrived at Luton Airport at 2pm on Tuesday afternoon, less than an hour after leaving Dortmund airport.

Arsenal have agreed a deal worth around £60m with Borussia Dortmund for the 28-year-old striker.

I have a question .Why are we buying another striker when we have no defensive midfielder,and have not replaced carzola .

Our midfield is suspect ,and the defense is awful and we are buying a striker.Does no one at the club understand the concept of building a cohesive team: that is the objective not collecting talent.

By the way is having an old team now one of our objectives.

Sanchez wax that guy but he was more about him doing stuff than the team winning. I don't think auba is one that. If he throws tantrums they will be more like ballotelli than sanchez.
People confuse attitude with winning mentality. City players like fernandinho have attitude but no winning mentality. They are winning because of the sheer ya talent in the squad.

In these day and age where players change clubs to frequently, it's hard to find that togetherness unless your are Barcelona has with messi, iniesta and busquets all there.

In most other cases , the team is winning because frankly the players they have are that good. Madrid, juve, bayern, psg all have stunning talent on their books.

Work shitty players got are going to win zilch as players these days don't take team losses that hard. How else would you even want to go to a place like China.

Someone like Theo was two things:

always out of position to score, and always, always, always fluffing his lines.

Auba will not do that. He's going to be tucking away the chances we need to.
How many games have we watched that could have gone so differently if we'd just converted one of those chances early on. We're going to be doing that now, mark my words.

And was offside. The more telling part is the heavy touch he took off ozils great first time ball which forced him wide onto his weaker left foot, also cutting the angle.

Both him and micky are good off their left foot though, so expect him to score more goals and be a threat, but don't expect miracles.

Expect him to be a passenger as well in many games cause he doesn't have the best close control or touches.

Lacazette in fact is better on the ball but, he tends to stay central and come off like a false 9, but auba always wants to go behind. Ozil is going to enjoy his time here though and so will we

Omg down people are just born miserable. Guy joins the club and immediately scores.

The fact it was offside is irrwlevant, top strikers keep going and okay to the whistle and don't hesitate in front of goal.

I'll say it now. He'll get at least ten before the endorsement the season. You should be excited

Dear Posters
I have a question .Why are we buying another striker when we have no defensive midfielder,and have not replaced carzola .

Our midfield is suspect ,and the defense is awful and we are buying a striker.Does no one at the club understand the concept of building a cohesive team: that is the objective not collecting talent.

By the way is having an old team now one of our objectives.
What a disgusting comment, pretending to know more than the gaffer when you actually know nothing. Haven't you noticed that the reason why our defence and midfield get so much pressure is because our attack is not feared and we're struggling to score goals? How many goals have we scored this season compared to our rivals? Moaners will always be moaners, if the club don't sign player you will moan and when they sign you still moan. What exactly is wrong with you people?

Here we go again! A quality player who can get us back in the top 4 and make us feared once again is about to slip through the cracks. The money is there to make the deal, but Uncle Scrooge is satisfied with what we now have. Are the supporters satisfied? Your thoughts?

Got a feeling Uncle Scrooge is not in 100% control of transfers or wages now.
He has never always been 100 percent in control of that, to think he was shows how deluded you've been.

Did we win by chance? DeTimes has crawled out from under his rock.

Have you been ill mate? Didn't see you after the Swansea match.

Predictable.

Any official statements on Aubameyang from you De Times? A few years ago I mentioned him as a player we should've signed and you slated him. I'll be interested to hear the 2018 "now Wenger has signed him" viewpoint...

I can't remember your exact wording pal but it was around 2012/13 and I suggested that we should've moved for him as he only cost Dortmund £16 million, especially with Wenger's supposed grip on the French market, and you said he wasn't our standard, or something to that effect.

Not dissimilar to what happened with Lacazette really.

Yes DeTimes pray tell, you still seem to have neglected to comment on why you claimed Lacazette to not good enough for Arsenal until Wenger signed him ... then miraculously you claim him to be world class??

LOL a quick search and there in all the chatting nonsense posts of DeTurd, there is this little gem.

Laca not as good as Sanogo apparently and Auba is average and not even as good as Demba Ba (Sm22)

Do enlighten us how Wenger has spent over a £100m on these two average strikers DeTimes. Your presence here really is depriving a village of their idiot.

Hmm, seems like PK has become possessed by the spirit of RadioFreeArsenal.
Exorcism or exile? That's the big question now. Is PK worth saving? I think so but plenty disagree, and I'm not jumping through a window after Radio gets inside me so we should probably ban him before this gets worse. The posts are only going to get longer so it's best we nip this in the bud.

I can confirm we went ahead with this exorcism and it went well. Apart from the occasional 'Your mother sucks off custodians in hell' jibes we successfully exorcised RadioFreeArsenal from PK.
