Arsenal sign [insert player name here]

Now that the transfer window has shut, I’d thought I’d pop up a little forum for discussion about who Arsenal might have signed. Rumours, discussion and pot-stirring is most welcome. In fact, it’s encouraged.

Have your say on potential Arsenal signings by leaving a comment.

    I love the hi-jacking Berbatov rumour. I’m sure it’s not true and it’s totally not at all what we need but it would be great to:

    1. Get one over the manc scum; and
    2. Have another Spurs player cross over, hopefully for sustained success.

    I have it on good authority, that Wenger has convinced Pele to come out of retirement and Maradona to lose some (ok a lot) of weight so they can play for the mighty Arsenal. Oh and Johan Cruijff is also gonna sign for us (I saw him playing a game two years ago in the Bergkamp testimonial-he must be signing).

    No seriously…please Arsene, please tell me you’ve signed someone!

    Foolish Arsene Wenger, decided to play stubborn and made us look like pricks. Now we have the “sensational” Denilson to cover in DM for a while untill the injured bastard Rosicky and Fake vieira, Diaby get fit. Well done Arsene! All we wanted was one signing you selfish cunt.

    What’s the point? All the money’s going to pay for the stadium anyway. It was on the cards that Arsenal weren’t gonna sign anyone. The question is, can Arsene Wenger get the best out of the players we do have as Alex Ferguson has done with his players. The likes of Viera and Henry hardly required managing, they were self sufficient as players. Can you say the same about our current bunch?

    we will challenge for honours without a shadow of a doubt. Its always nice to sign players but the set up at arsenal since aquiring the planning permission for the emirates means we simply dont need to buy. Silly teams spending silly money is not the way forward. Please be patient and keep the faith. Fuck the doubters. We’ll shove it right up their arses with a pointed stick come the end of the season.

    I got a feeling we have made a deal or two and that it will all come out in the morning,I found it interesting that Juventus have signed Iago from Barca and have a sneaking feeling that we could wake up to see that Sebastian Giovincio could be coming our way-Le Boss has been intersted in him for a while now and although he is not the dm that everybody seems to want us to sign,he is an outstanding talent,and as the old saying goes “the best form of defense is attack”
    If it wasnt for Pavel Nedved this guy would have been starting for Juventus already.
    Chances are we probably picked up a quality dm too,wait till the morning and see.

    we hav a first team that can challenge for the title, but not a squad. it is frustrating that we probably only need one central midfielder to compliment cesc to take us to the next level. but hey, im not ruling out anything till i wake up tomoro morning. but then again, its not the end of the world, diaby is an able replacement, denilson plays well wen next to cesc and song is a solid flamini replacement. and anyway, forget defending, nasri and vela will enable us to score more goals than the other team so who cares bout defending!!!

    i truely think that we’re screwed this season. i’ve been waiting up to see if we would sign anybody but we haven’t, does arsene really think his gonna win prem and champion league with kids don’t think so, not when you got squads like manu and chelsea (size and experience) of the squad. We were let down last season because the squad was so thin, this season he has not even replaced the players that we’ve lost. i’m just fuming that arsenal will get pushed out of the top four if they do not compete with the other top three, now man city are gonna be the new chelsea i just see arsenal going backwards

    We’ve lost Diara, Gilberto, Henry, Flamstar, Hleb, Senderos, Hoyte, Lehman and possibly Djourou.

    Yet, we have brought in Nasri and a kid for the already filled reserve. I just dont have an excuse to present my case to God for committing suicide if not, I would have killed myself a long while ago. I cant stand this anymore.

    Some perspective is needed on the comings and goings.

    Lehmann and Gilberto were no longer 1st choice. Fabianski has shown genuine talent in his last few appearances.
    Hleb has been upgraded with Nasri.
    Hoyte has been upgraded with Silvestre.
    Diaby was ahead of Flamini in the pecking order last summer.(Wenger has clearly stated that)
    Song has become top class. Pushing himself ahead of Senderos. Also able to fill in for Diaby.
    Djourou has not left, only improved.
    Denilson is improving.
    Vela looks like a top quality addition.
    As do youngsters Ramsey, Merida, Coquelin, Wilshere, etc

    We were not short last year. We were injured more than ever. We are possibly one body short in midfield. But attempts to buy Inler were unsuccessful. Panic buys are unacceptable. Wenger only buys quality.

    i don’t think a signing will be coming. and i do think you’re all a bunch of whiners. so we didn’t sign anyone. stop complaining! why don’t you go root for chelsea or man utd, and even better yet spurs! not long ago you were all singing the praises of arsene wenger and now you all curse him. he is the reason arsenal is the club they are today. so stop complaining! who knows. last year everyone thought flamini was garbage and if you told them that he would start next to cesc all season you’d all be saying the same thing! wouldn’t you? bunch of babies. so what if diaby comes in (who everyone thinks is garbage) and dominates the middle like flamini did? then what? denilson hasn’t looked completely awful! sure i would’ve loved it if xabi alonso came, but he hasn’t! arsenal is still a great club and we can still do great things. now stop complaining and be loyal for god’s sake! gunners for life!

  57. Biff
    September 2, 2008 at 11:22 am #

    That’s fine but Diaby is more injury prone that Rosicky. When did he last play 3 consecutive games? You can’t pin your hopes on someone who is injured that much. And then where are we left? Denilson was fine against Newcastle but Danny Murphy completely dominated him last weekend. That kind of thing will happen again.

  63. Andre 2000
    September 2, 2008 at 11:46 am #

    I would have liked one more midfielder also. But there is no reason why Diaby can’t play most of the season. He’s nearly over the thigh strain. It’s hardly career threatening. If Van Persie can come back to form and get through fine after being kicked. Then surely a big, strong 20 yr old like Diaby can.

  64. R Prabu
    September 2, 2008 at 11:48 am #

    The problem according to AW “is availability of players who are as good or better.”
    We certainly believe.
    That you have become super lazy.Arsenal is a club on the decline.Just as AW predicted Man U will be some years ago.

    Midfielder would have been nice but what can you do? No purchase is better than wasting a chunk on rubbish.

    Anyway, after Saturday I wasn’t bothered in the slightest if we didn’t sign today. I certainly didn’t want Alonso.

    Eduardo, Rosicky and Diaby all to come back too; We have some real quality in our team and if we can stay fit we’ll be challenging on both domestic and european fronts.

    Wenger why, we have been pleading for a DM since Flamini left, thats the 1 signing everyone was looking forward and you didnt go for it. I dont understand, sat here 4 bout 5 hours waiting for news that Arsenal signed someone but no. We have Rosicky, Diaby, Eduardo and RvP to come back from injuries but I am VERY upset and disappointed. What are peoples vies on Berba at United and Robinho at City, personally i think City got a better signing.

  68. Wildon
    September 2, 2008 at 12:15 pm #

    Robinho is a phenomenal signing and I must say i’m glad man city got him rather than chelsea. Chelsea are looking very very dangerous this season. Probably more so than Man U especially while they don’t have cr7 in the team.

    I think Wegner has made a signing…I would put money on it…VELOSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  81. Biff
    September 2, 2008 at 1:58 pm #

    I think the Wenger out stuff is ridiculous. Whether the club really do have money or not (and on the off-chance that they don’t), there is no other manager who could lead Arsenal to the same level of success on such a budget.
    I think Song and Diaby are good enough, the only problem is injuries and how we are thin and really need our first team to stay fit. But get serious. Wenger out? That is madness.

  82. Demetrio
    September 2, 2008 at 2:06 pm #

    I agree and disagree, Wenger can be replaced, i’ve said it in the past and still cant no one tell me any different. Wenger is not the only successful manager that could lead Arsenal to maybe even better accomplishments. But i agree that people saying sack him cuz he didnt buy is madness. There is a good chance that we really dont have the money to buy. And unless we get someone with a lot of money to invest or take over (as Man City just did), we wont have that money til the stadium is paid for.

    The moment i read wenger’s comments after that newcastle game i knew that another signing was unlikely.I suspect that if we had performed dismally in that game things would have been different as wenger would have been under extreme pressure.
    To me things are looking bleak indeed.
    Man U and Chelsea have brought in quality signings despite the form they displayed last season.Spurs have strengthened big time. What’s so wrong with us?
    I do not have a problem with Wenger because he did not sign BUT BECAUSE OF BEING DISHONEST WITH US. Why did he have to raise our expectations that he’ll definitely sign a DM when he knew full well down in his heart that it was just a PR gimmick to get the media off his back?!He should have just told us he is not interested in signing anyone.To me this money issue does not just add up-what with Fiszman coming out and saying that if Wenger asks for 30 million pounds to buy he’ll be given!Who is being dishonest here?Needless to say that if he has made a late signing then I will take back my words.I hope we qualify for champions league next season.

    West Ham United are hoping to wrap up the signing of Ghana captain Stephen Appiah before the transfer window shuts at midnight, according to reports. The east Londoners are believed to have agreed terms with the 27-year-old, who claims to be a free agent after negotiating an exit from Fenerbahce. However, the Hammers first need to confirm the player’s contract status with the Turkish club.

    Appiah had been in dispute with the club following a knee injury and his subsequent lack of involvement in the 2008 African Cup of Nations.The powerful midfielder has previously played for Italian clubs Udinese, Parma, Brescia and Juventus.

    And he has been linked with a sensational move back to Turin giants Juventus in recent days, while his agent revealed he has also received numerous offers from England, Scotland and Spain.


    i would be very dissapointed if the bloody hammers were too sign him

    no one.Beating newcastle let wenger to believe that all is still well at arsenal.But fact is denilson is paperweight in midfield and gets pushed off ball to easy so agaisnt good teams or physical away we are finished.
    This will be cescs last season as he realize wenger thinks he can do two players jobs in center.I dont think wenger cares

    rsenal were last night desperately trying to sign Xabi Alonso before the transfer window closed after submitting an improved offer, thought to be around £14m, for the Spanish international midfielder. Earlier the Liverpool manager, Rafael Benitez, had insisted Alonso was not for sale but it is understood that he was always prepared to do a deal if his valuation was met

    With £30m in the kitty what’s AW been waiting for, any one with a football brain recognised that the squad that finished last season where a couple of players short haven’t lost key players during the summer our situation is even more critical.

    I think this season could be a watershed if we don’t win any trophies and don’t finish in the top four, AW will need to look himself in the mirror and question his judgement it could all end-up in tears.

    look, arsene needs smeone who fits into the arsenal squad and can play fast moving football which is why samir nasri is a good signing. tbh he fits right in! and even though everyone is undermining aumary bischoff, with a year in arsenal, he could really become something. also we have aaron ramsey who is going to be great and we won him out of loads of teams who wanted him so lets be fair here, well done arsene….

    Doesnt look at all likely that anyone was signed. everyone has been waiting all day for no news. never mind we might get into the top five this season. just need all our injured players back and although it will probably be too late by then theres always the january transfer window!!!!!

    stop fucking crying and support arsenal and Mr wenger sure im dissapointed theres no signing but no life long supporter slags off wenger he made arsenal he is the brains behind the fucking team and you lot cryingdoesnt help. We couldnt sign Alonso because he is cup tied, Inler signed a new contract , Veloso is to much we have a fucking stadium to pay for , Mountiniho would be off within a year to Real or Barca for a extra ten grand, Daniel De Guzman is crap trust me eye witness here be fucking realistic we need wenger he is the best at getting the best out of what he has. Just look forward to january with the prodigdy of Gerginiho probably joining and a race to sign Huntelaar maybe we should expect signings then.

    p.s stop fucking crying you call yourself life long supporters look on the brightside and get on with it

    […] peculiarity with regards to a potential signing is the situation of a certain Stephen Appiah. As ‘SHARD’ cleverly pointed out in the comments of the previous post, Appiah is currently a free agent and as such is not bound by the constraints of the transfer […]
