I tried and failed lol. It was just a reaction gif to your post/burn
Oh, lol I thought it was a "nasty" gif.
Lyon board told him he would need to resign to stay though.
L'Equipe is reporting Arsenal bid for Pepe but Ornstein is saying they haven't.
Odd that two trustworthy sources are saying the exact opposite things.
Also reports that Arsenal have bid for Tierney and he will make the move shortly.
The most interest plot of the transfer window (to me) so far is British journalists vs French journalists
The english tabloids running with arsenal upping their bid to 25m pounds. I'd hope to hold out for a bit more, but celtic would prob accept 25m.
It's coming from Sky Sports Scotland and Scottish Sun.
Yes they've been linked with him since the Copa America. I think his brother or agent said something about a mystery English team going after him.
I'd love if Arsenal indeed got him, way better than Ferreira Carrasco and probably better than Zaha too (at least when you consider what they would cost).
Betis is looking fairly strong if they can keep Lo Celso
Knockaert getting looked at by Fulham, rumour is 15 million. Knocky was Sky Bet Champions Player of the year when Brighton were promoted. I doubt Brighton get rid of him, really no reason for it and why would he want to go down a league?
That's a lot of money for a fullback, I hope he plays for us for 10 yrs or so.
hopefully we put a sell on in the deal for when a big club come calling for tierney
Arsenal's budget is 40mil, they spent 25mil of that on Tierney.
The 40 million is for installments.
So they can technically buy a player for 100 million as long as this year the amount paid to the club is 40 mil or less.
That's fine, but you just side it was expensive without mentioning that. That is not expensive.
You would think they would be more ruthless in selling Umtiti who's fee would pay at least 80 to 90% of the entire de Ligt transfer.
Emery is a proven winner...
And AB has a point about Spurs, for how "amazing" of a season everyone said they had, they still haven't won any trophy and barely finished above a "scrub" club in the EPL with a "terrible" manager at the helm and an awful away form. Yes, they got to the CL Finals - good for them - lets see if they can go far again and show us last year wasn't a fluke.
Arsenal also rumoured to be after Rubien Dias, as they REALLY want him, but his buy-out of 57 million pounds is truly unrealistic.
That's without any players sold. They of course will be shipping out players knowing they got some coming in. It's a terrible system considering I cannot watch another season with majority of the first team last year, but it is what it is.
No, he's not a winner. He won EL with Sevilla which is still to this date his biggest and almost only achievement. Rest of his spanish career was a failure most of the time in the league. IIRC, his last season, he finished 7th or 8th.
With PSG, he managed to lose domestic Cups, something Blanc never did ONCE in 3 years. He also failed (albeit with ref help) twice before the CL QF, something Blanc never achieved ONCE in 3 years.
Then he moved to Arsenal and missed the top 4.
The only competition Emery is competitive in is the EL (as shown this year again). If that's he only trophy you're after, fine.
Why are we looking to bring in a player similar to Alli? 100% need another playmaker, even if Eriksen stays.
Because Lamela will get injured?
I don´t believe in that link anyway, but my guess is that players like Lo Celso, Eriksen, Ceballos etc. are all seen mainly as players for a midfield 3. Further forward it would "only" be Son, Alli, Lucas and Lamela. Son and Lucas also having to cover for Kane.
I like Zaniolo, but I can see the concern as to where he would fit. If only he had pace....
