    Haha I saw that on Newsnow and laughed.

    Song definitely has the potential to be a great player, and during Jan, Paddy for short term cover!

    Cana is a tough player, and would adapt well to the premier league. If i saw that Song was not improving and being capable to play, then i would welcome htis news. However this is nto the case. Song, excuse the pun but is on song. He is a player who has shown that he is more than capable to rough it up with the best, and has also shown that he has a mean streak to fit in to the tough tackling premier league. Lorik Cana….. No thanks.

    I think this headline just goes to show that even when Arsenal are looking to be a strong team, there will always be reporters suggesting that we are not, as shown by this headline. We do not need another player right now. And we have what can be regarded as one of the most in form teams in the premier league. Thanks reporters for showing us your nose for news and prowess for negligence….

    Cana aint gonna happen. Vieira would be perfect now that we have matured so much and can handle his presence…

    Alos I just want to say. Who do you guys think are favorites for the EPL and UCL? To me there is no team out there who I think is better then us. Especially in the league though it will depend on consistency. In UCL Barca/ Chelsea are the only teams that really its a toss up. I think we have the perfect team to beat Real Madrid and Italy doesnt worry me too much. Knock on wood but I have a feeling…….

    Spot on Baz. Very astute, what we have now is what we’ll have at the end of January barring injuries and I feel quite comfortable with the situation, we are playing well.

    hehe what a turn of events.
    earlier in season we were all saying Song wasnt good enough and Cana was one of the names propped up.

    now we laugh when we hear another DM signing to replace Song. What a turn-around.

    Guyfrmars, am sure you didnt land from Mars yesterday. Nearly every Arsenal fan is eating his words for not trusting Wenger’s judgement of Song’s potential!

    Guyz this headline is not that ridiculous…
    Song is doing very good but other than him no one can do his job. Arsenal needs more tough players and just more than one good player at each position. The season is very long and what happens if Song is injured for a long time… Diaby is way to offensive and denilson is to soft. So we definitely need another tough midfield player Cana or Viera would be both welcome even if i prefer Cana cuase Viera’s time is over and Cana has the exact same profile as Flamini. Him and fabregas could kill it. Go Gunners.
