M’Vila MUST be coming to Arsenal now

With the news that Alex Song is off to Barcelona for a medical tomorrow, then surely this means that the long awaited arrival of Yann M’Vila must now be announced official.

At the beginning of the transfer window it was an open secret that the deal was certain to happen, but suddenly the rumour-mill went dead and we haven’t heard anything until this last week, when the Rennes chairman Frederic de Saint-Serni, said: ‘He has a concrete offer from England.”

This was believed to have been from Tottenham, but today the new Spurs boss Andres Villas-Boas has cast doubt that there is any chance of M’Vila going to White Hart Lane. He said: : “He is an interesting player, but I don’t think he will join Tottenham. He is a rather defensive player.

“We are looking for a more creative player. I won’t lie. There was an interest from us in that player, but now we are looking at different options.”

Now can anyone think of a team that now desperately needs a “rather defensive” midfielder????

    Mabey we should get m’villa and sahin because sahin won’t cost anything extra only wages.

    I think we need CB, RB and CDM. Maybe Sahin is extra. I think we got CDM and Sahin and thats it.

    Jenkinson needs more confidence.He is still young and his attitude is rather vanilla! (if you know what i mean). I think he will be much better in central defence but his crosses are rather good tho. Walcott played bad for me…just like last year, not much new from him, he doesnt pass or take on players as much as i expected from him. Carzorla and Gervinho were good i rate them 7.5 or 8. The defence has not much to do so hard to tell if they played well or not, as with the keeper. Ramsey should move out on loan or should be sold, he is just like last year…CRAP!! Ox should have played and start rather than Walcott (over rated player). Arsenal should have got Afellay from or as part of the SOng deal! They should aslo bid for Victor moses!!! For me Diabywas p-laying rather well, he needs more first team action tho. M’VIla, Sahin, Sakho, Mexes, one cheap but rather good Striker, if they could sign those type of players, ARSENAL would be title contenders. IF thats the team for the whole season lets say, they wont win the league, 3rd or 4 th if they played like that but ppl should know Sunderland were defending with 10 men in the box so hard to score when the other team comes to play defence only!! :/ Lets not talk about RVP or SONG now! Forget them. HATE THE BOARD!! HATE KROENKE especially!! IF Arsenal dont win anything ths season, WEnger should also quit too!! And also board mebers should be changed!!!!

    Honestly,wenger is the greatest one.season after seasons our best have had to leave yet we take part in all that need to…but gambling with some squad members is questionable.let him bring in M’villa,a right full back and a back up keeper……nigeria’s Enyeama is ok….gunners till l die.

    gotta say we have more then plenty of cover at cb now vermaelan koscielny and mertasacker are three quality cbs with ignasi mikel and djouru fine back ups so I’m tired of people calling for another I just want everything thrown into a solid DM and an EPL proven forward if we don’t get those two the best I think any fan can hope for is a trophy-less season with a 3rd or 4rth spot in the league

    We do need a DM badly,..Diaby cnt b trustd in dat position,he dribbles much n möst tim loses d ball.,wich is dangerous,n lik song,he is also attackin minded,we nid M’villa badly,only ONE gud DM is al we fans asks wenger 2 buy 4us 2 complete our team,he n d greedy board cn share d remainin money.. Reinforce our Arsenal wenger lets drink wit a trophy dis season.

    You are very correct,but can AW see that not only jenkinson what about Diaby,and Ramsey for the little he came him playing as if nothing at stake.In all sincerity,Carsoria was fantastic.We cannot afford to loose players like RVP AND SONG and AW talking about frimpong as a midfielder,the tall german defender,Giggs infact with this players we cannot challenge bigger clubs like ManU,Manc,and chelsea.
    We need to win the league,but according to AW he is not ready,good money good players.

    Arsenal have finished buying this transfer window, so forget about anyone coming in to replace RVP and Song.
    Arsenal will sell a few more players before the window closes. IT A Great time to be a Shareholder BIG FAT Dividends for them.

    Out:
    RVP £24million
    Bartley £1million
    Song £15million
    In:
    Cazorla £15million
    Poldolski £10.9million
    Giroud £12 million
    + £2.1 million profit

    Unless you think we can sign M’Vila for £2.1 million or sell another player I don’t see it happening. More likely a loan for sahin

    No m’vila please! We need capoue. In the games i’ve seen m’vila play his energy level is very low and he moves about the pitch quite awkwardly. Capoue is bigger, taller, faster, and an absolute terrier in the middle in the form of tiote. He would add real steel and defensive solidity to our midfield.

    Now I know why Usmanov was right and shit Kroenke was wrong. Kroenke has some shady deals going on for him on Arsenal board that is why he does not want Usmanov there. Some fans were clapping for him (Kroenke) but now abusing him in shame of his poverty mentality. If Arsenal board cannot see more money making opportunities in winning trophies, then they are really short-sighted financially but only greedy. Its high time we fans made open protest for our dreams of siverware and sustained pride to be met. Or we keep dreaming on for another year until we finish mid-table (very possible with these crop of mediocre players), and very soon RVP will rightly show the world why he joined Nasri, Clichy, Cesc, Gallas, etc in dumping Arsenal, including Song for sure. For the board greediness, I have forgiven all these players who dumped us because they are all right. Any Arsenal fan who ever boo them is an idiot. The right people to boo are the board members, excluding Wenger for now.

    Spurs are out the race for M’vila, but I doubt Wenger will bring in anyone else besides Sahin. He did say in an interview after selling Song that there was possibility of a new replacement on the way. I would have bought Fellani quite honestly…great player with loads of PL experience and also an old team mate of Arteta, so already he would gel into the midfield fairly quickly. I really hope Wenger does sign someone else, just to add more depth to the squad and ease the pain of the fans. Everytime I see RvP in a United shirt I feel like throwing up.

    Not nice being the laughing stock once again this season. How far will the board stretch our loyalty???

    If not b/c am real fan i would have ar d board but, i tink their is still room for changes. sahin, m’villa nd lioren are stil much needed let disgrace spur for their foolish thought about us ND next season may be we’ll be in need of coach who will always haunt for class nd reliable player.

    Diaby /ramsey / theo r not arsenal quality ! 2 many flaws in there play.. Theo is not brilliant wit d ball,expecially when triangled.. While diaby thinks he’s a super man, unecessary holding d ball & breaking d flow of play..& ramsey as no clue! They r not just d tiki taka material. We need ǻ spainish lad & ǻ french import,”adrian lopez”, m’vila & sahin. Damn sick of d same & unchange above junky playerz! We need reasonable quality players.
