A bit confused at the moment. A few places saying he's agreed terms with Real (Spurs still to agree though which will be the hard part) but there's a SSN clip doing the rounds where thinking they're off camera they're talking about Keith (supposedly Keith James, head editor at Sky Sports) being told by people at the club that Modric and VDV staying.

With the rumoured 200m investment about to be announced it's entirely possible he was given a massive pay rise and decided to stay. Who knows. Would be good to get it sorted early though.

When he gets it right, it looks good, but like the rest of his game, his finishing suffers from horrible inconsistently.

His finishing is more consistent. You're right though, he still has the touch of a rapist at times. He certainly can't dribble but if he played up front I think his finishing would improve markedly, and good through balls would allow him to use his pace far more effectively and cleverly.

If he doesn't want to stay and we get a decent offer I wouldn't think twice about selling him though.

wat av city done wrong there? By signing player dat they want? Common u guys should stop deceiving ur selfs. If u are on city foot u’ll do more dan dat. So arsenal should go out there to sing de player they want to sign no one will caution dem. City sign de player they want to sign bcos they really no wat they want to achive.

All confirmed now.
"What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It's not the television contracts, get out clauses or the marketing departments or executive boxes. It's the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city''

I'm highly suspicious of any defender coming out of a league where Matja Ketzman and Dirk Kuyt were goal scoring machines.

Remember when all the Arse fans were talking about Chamakh like he was the second coming of christ and everyone else said "wait a minute, he has a patchy record in France and is available on a free signing...don't get your hopes up."

Then we paid 35 million for Andy Carroll and everyone forgot about Chamakh.

I remember like 4 years ago in fifa my scouting system signed V.Moses when I had no idea who he was for my Swindon Town team in the prem and he scored something like 78 goals, so I have always had a soft spot for the guy .

ps. 15 million for Walcott is good business imo

Quote:

Walcott has just 12 months to run on his contract and has so far rejected Arsenal’s £70,000-a-week offer, with the 23-year-old said to be holding out for nearer £100,000-a-week. The Star report that Wenger has told club officials to sell the attacker if an offer of around £15m comes in, with Chelsea said to be interested.

old mate chamakh did actually start out alright.

He was never intended as the primary striker though, always as a 2nd option to provide an aerial threat.

It's all good, Giroud is better with the ball at his feet, plus we have more people that can actually cross now. (and he is just generally dreamy without the silly haircut like chamakh)

Fuck off Sheik McBramovich - we already have a clone of Lewis in Sturridge. Spend money on defense.

I wouldn't be surprised if he went back to a striker role with Torres - as 2nd choice - in a 4-2-3-1. Reprise his striker role
