To be honest John I think the whole saga has been very very embarrassing. It is ok for Wenger to under value other teams players but it seems its not ok for Barca to undervalue Cese.
Personally I do feel they should pay since they have consistantly tapped him up in one way or another in an attempt to get him on the cheap.
From the back page of the sunday maul or wail it now seems he is so fed up he will forfit the 4,000,000. from the trasfer to get it sorted not before time i feel he could have done that ages ago and i am SICK of wenger pussy footing around him. Could youn see SAF doing that or maureen ?? No neither could I
And i feel its far to big a gamble to keep Nasri and think we might as well take the 22 million that is on offer cos with no defence bought we aint going to win an egg and spoon race IMHO
I agree. I think we have gone from a club that players used to queue up to join; to an also-ran. That's why it's been so difficult to sign quality players. I'm sure they are thinking why would I sign for a club that can't keep it"s best two players (sorry, RvP, you're good, too)?
