Arsenal ready to spend big says Wenger!

Arsene Wenger has been asked plenty of times recently whether he would be adding players to the Arsenal squad in January, and his response has usually been along the lines of, it’s too early to say, I don’t want to make any rash moves etc. That seems to have gone out the window, possibly because he has now been promised enough money and has got some players lined up. Wenger has revealed that the economic hard times for the Gunners are about to become a thing of the past, which will be music to the ears of Gooners everywhere.

“We have gone through a period where we had restricted potential, financially. (had, not have)

“(That happens) when you move into the new stadium, but we have come over that period and now hopefully can be a bit more convincing (with transfers and contracts).”

We know that Wenger keeps a United front for the cameras, but the players looked like they had been given some harsh words before yesterday’s game. Maybe Wenger laid a few things on the line to the Arsenal board as well, I hope so. Along with some potential additions in January, Arsenal are in the process of securing the services of the young talent, like Wilshere, with long term contracts.

Wenger believes that the future success of Arsenal lies at the feet of the core of young, talented players who have come through the ranks.

“When a club gives a chance to young players, somewhere the players must say `let’s do it together` because, if you educate players, at some stage fate is in their hands and they must want to win together.”

Wenger may have been having a dig at some of the former players who he educated, only for them to abandon his Arsenal vision, such as van Persie and Nasri.

    lets be harsh and loving to our club that seems to work atleast for yesterdays match. and we heard this cos last trnsfr window we talked toooo much and waited till the end but nothing we lost 2 great players where by with them we could be at the top of the league. but any way lets focus only on replacing vanpersie and song and a hard tackler on our defence.and a cheap midfielder like isco b/c diaby and ramsey are not worth it.not forgetting a great real winger cos i dont want yao to be back. remembring podolski,walcot,giroud as strikers

    most big name players are cup tied for the champions league however we dont really have a team good enough to push for that this season so any new additions would really help our premier league push ,as long as we keep our top players and add some quality we should have a formidable line up for the rest of this season and next season as well

    This will not happen until the summer…….mark my words, and then he will spend big. A couple of reasons for this.

    1. The new emirates deal although front-loaded doesnt come into effect until next summer from what i heard so the extra 30m is off the table for Jan.

    2. Jan sales are not really the time for wenger deals unless there are decent players coming to the end of their contracts and as wenger says (and it is true) jan buying is a signal of desperation for most so all of a sudden a player that should be going for say about 10m will be charged 25m for because clubs hate losing players mid-season especially if they are good quality and are vital to their seasons………for that matter summer is the best time for decent deals.

    I am not saying NO business will be done in Jan apparently we have a new defensive player in already called Sunzu and this is the guy that dominated Drogba in the ACN for Zambia….he is a brilliant player and scores a lot of goals too…….might be others too but dont expect anyone hugely impressive which is a household name just yet!!

    I saY clear out deadwood 16 players for around £4m each gives us £64m. Youngsters such as Gnarby, Eisfeld, Chuk, Mayachi, Campbell should be drafted in. Reinforce by signing DM LB in Jan. Challenge for at least third place and FA cup. Do some serious signings in summer when best players are available. With sale of deadwood plus £70m made available, we should have more than £100m to spend than make some serious signings.

    I wonder sometimes how many scouting reports Wenger has dismissed over the years because we haven’t had the money.

    If we’d had money to bring in new talent. We could have kept players such as Hleb, Flamini, Nasri and RVP, by giving them big contracts and probably would have had 1 or 2 league titles in the last 7 years.

    Oh well, thank you nice, big, shiny stadium, you’ve turned us in to a Champions league side and Champions league side only.

    I’d love to see us cut some deadwood form the squad and then start to replace them with a few useful players.

    I think we’ll only buy a max of about 3 players in January, Wenger has usually done quite well when buying in January, so it’s encouraging to hear that he will be active, and with a couple of soon to be out of contract bargains possibly out there like Llorente, we could get lucky.

    I get the feeling Wenger is going to ‘spend’?? Why? Because everybody is right, whenever he is asked about spending he always gives a conservative response. This time he himself is saying he has ‘more’ money to spend. That to me indicates a change? We shall see.

    I’ve not seen him play but Strootman sounds like the ‘type’ of player needed? Scherrer would be good too! Looks like TW is moving on so that means a right wing spot will open up, rumors are Zaha, Nani, or maybe Scherrer. Sorry I dont think Nani is good enough! Zaha who knows? Has anyone seen Strootman play. Scherrer is a goalscorer doe he do that from the right? If so then he might be the best choice with Walcott leaving town

    I also think the dig part where aimed at Walcott, in suggesting he should want to achieve alongside his compatriots who undoubtedly have great potential/abilities.

    Its great to hear we have finally turned a corner concerning transfer funds, all we need now is for our board to abolish this measily wage structure. Its mad to think that liv can pay there stopper one hundred and ten grand a week and even Sahin chose them because the Arsenal could not rival liv offer, sounds crazy considering.

    What was the point of moving to Emirates Stadium?

    We were told it would bring in big money, make us an even bigger name and help bring in players.
    I was still opposed to it at first, but that was because of Highbury and nostalgia.

    However, those things that were supposed to happen did not! In fact, the opposite did. If we didn’t move, we would have more money to spend, a proper board who brought top players in and kept the ones we had. So what the stadium wouldn’t be as ”grand”? I loved Highbury and we were a much better club there. Hopefully these financial hard times are truly over at Arsenal and the board really does do some positive things.

    Please ARSENAL can we aim a bit higher than Huntelaar. I rate what he’s achieved but he has flopped at most big clubs he’s been at, does nothing on the pitch but the occasioal goal poach – too similar to Podolski’s playing style.
    So we need a new striker DIFFERENT to Giroud

    And also Zaha is SO overrated – he plays in the championship fgs! Sterling is better and might be on his way out – I hope to god we do get rid of Gervinho et al though and do get a proper winger though, my hope is we get Isco as the offensive talent – he’s deemed the next Fabregas & pals with Santi!

    I’m hopeful of some well placed quality players in Jan to fill the weaknesses in our squad. I honestly don’t think we need that much as long as those we have keep playing like they did yesterday! Even though Reading laid down in the first half we still kept it on them. JW10 was immense on and off the ball and I want that effort from every player out there every game!

    First things first is players have got to be sold. Rash avian, Djourou, Chamakh, etc have to be off the books completely before we have room to bring in the players we need.

    I do not know much about Sunzu, but fans are always complaining about bringing in players from weaker leagues saying they can’t hack it in the premiership, now we are saying to sign a guy who plays in the Congolese league. He has only played in Congo and Zambia’s leagues. He went on loan to a Frencg Ligue 2 team and made 0 appearences.

    I am not saying he is a bad player, but he doesn’t seem to be the replacement we so desperately need!

    just a few weeks or even days ago a lot of us were gunning for Wenger, some of us even wanted our side to lose to make Wenger see that we need some world class coz he took out and never put back in! But, this is destroying us, every true Arsenal fan must be hurting right now!!!

    it’s sickeningly obvious, we need some world class!!!
    We need to create a platform to attract the likes of Gortze in the summer… we really need to be smart in this forthcoming window!

    I read an article that we would go for Gustavo that Bayern DM player, I think that would be sound coz he’s quality, plus a quality “mobile” CF & a LB… we just need quality!

    After carefully watching the reading game i still keep my opinion that a DM ( tackler-physical-intimidating )is A MUST..arteta did tired after 60 mins and we lost the cover in the middle..he was just jogging instead or rushing..he did an awesome job but it is easy to see how much wear him off..if this happens against City-Chelski-pool or Man Utd we will be in great trouble.so M’VILLA ( get him free on loan til end of season with a buying clause ) is my choice since the season started…the formation was excellent as attacking minded but the big ones will exploit it so other choices are Yanga-M’Biwa (12m ) , and Huntelaar ( 8m ) = total spend 20 millions max really believe this is the main CORE to reach even 3rd and a decen run in the CL

    Demba Ba has a buy-out clause of 7.5 million and David Villa wants a move to the premiership with Arsenal and Tottenham interested, he’s currently taking English lessons.

    If we bring in strikers it should be one or both of the two mentioned to give our squad real depth and quality upfront. In midfield Elsharaaway is a talented winger that we should be so that Walcott can play upfront whilst Elsharaaway and Chamberlain play the wings. My ideal player in midfield would be Fellani/M’vila both have the energy and drive to solidify our midfield but M’Vila cheaper and younger. Diame is my last option. In defence M’Bwia and Jetro Willems

  57. **** Set Gunner ****

    Forward: Getting El Sharawry or Falcao or Cavani is a really long shot and i don’t think we would be able to afford them. But i guess for a striking option we can possibly go for Stevan Jovetic, but then again he is not yet proven himself and he would be a risk, but a risk worth taking for up 22 mil. Also we should sign Walcott at any cost because he is one of our oldest players in the squad and if we keep selling our core then the chemistry of the team gets affected. We must also get rid of Arshavin and Chamakh, Gervinho’s turn to go can be in the summer.

    Midfield: Now getting Gotze or Eriksen is also not possible as they would not cost less than 25 mil each. But then the suitable target can be Maroune Fellaini. He would be the perfect midfielder we need who can take up any slot in our 3 man midfield. We can sell Ramsey and loan out Eisfield, Frimpong and Coquelin.

    Defence: First of all we need to get Sagna’s contract sorted out again for the same reason as Walcott. We don’t need a RB as we have Jenkinson as back up. On the left side however we need to sell Santos and buy Baines, but if we get Fellaini then i don’t expect we will be able to buy him, the other option could be youngsters like Luke Shaw or Jetro Willems. In the CB role we have 3 decent players but we need someone much better, someone like Subotic or Mbiwa. Then we can get rid of Squillaci and Djourou.

    First of all we need to get rid of chamakh and arshavin and the rest of the deadwood at arsenal. We then need to bring in another striker without a doubt. An out an out goal scorer. Could ba be the answer? Roughly 7 million wold seal the deal as his contract has a sell on clause. We then need an enforcer to replace song from the summer. Diary needs to go, he’s a great player but he’s just injured so much and we need someone who can be there throughout the season. Diame could be the right choice. A great enforcer and he’s been amazing for west ham and he’s available for 6 million. We also then need another left back. Santos is diaboical. We needs someone to back up Gibbs who can actually defend unlike santos. Baines could be a great signing as it will also in a way mentor Gibbs and make him a more experienced player. He also needs to bring in another top signing to increase the morale of the fans as well as the players like cazorla did at the start of the season.

    Problem with Wenger is he does not rate proven players from EPL at all,one exception to this ignorance was Arteta,and even that came about in the twelveth hour.So,he would travel to France for anotherGervinho like shet and Wengerites will hail him for his masterpiece.

    To be honest what we need is Theo;give him what he wants,he is more worthy of such wage than wenger himself.Replacements,don’t always work,you think you’ve signed someone better than Wallcot and suddenly things don’t go according to the plan and next year we will find ourself in the same mess.It was Wenger’s arrogance that told him that we are better even without RVP,but he must have realised after almost half the season gone,we are already out of title race,that it was a mistake.

    I genuinely want Arsenal FC to be a team we knew years back. A team that could bring panic in opposition camp when faced.
    I am appealing to Arsenal boss to bring back the smile to millions of fans’ face of this fantastic football club by buying top class players.
    It starts appearing as if Arsenal is a second class football team by lack of ambitions. It’s time now Mr Wenger. Come on
    Mr Wenger!! Good luck.
