Birmingham City Message Board
"Arsenal will have left Cardiff's Millennium Stadium with the FA Cup trophy and the sneaking suspicion they are still no real match for Manchester United."
Couldn't have put that better myself!!
well talking about strikers we should buy,I think we should go for Mr Torres,Souza Robinho(oh sorry he is too lightweight or some Italian guy from Parma(?)
stupid suggestion edgar davids is absolutley past it.gilberto silva and viera are by far the best midfield duo in the premiership.and fabregas and flamini are further up the pecking order than davids.if we wanted davids in our side wenger would havew moved for him years ago.wenger is the most shrewd manager in the world when it comes to the transfer market no question.whoever he buys or doesnt buy i have complete faith in him.
taylor should be given a chance in goal and a cash+owen deal for reyes would be too good to turn down we do need a centre back but who is there?? also Julio Baptista is a great player if we could get him b4 the other intrested clubs
Never mind what players Arsenal should buy,its what players Arsenal should not sell as i heard that they asked Juventus for £14million for Viera.If that id true then Aresnal are just in the premiership to make numbers rather winning throphies.May be they should sell Wenger as he seems to have lost the plot.

I'm writing this message regarding the Patrick Vieira's decisoin to go to Serie A champions Juventus. Arsenal have made a couple of good signing for the past two seasons in buying Jens Lehmann from Dortmond and just recently Alexander Hleb.
With August just around the corner however and looking at last season and recently the the Confederations cup the one player Arsenal need to buy is Michael Ballack. I know Jenas is on Wengers mind at the moment but we will need a experience captain to fill Patricks boots. Kaka to people who think he is the answer to Wenger's midfield problem, i doupt it. Kaka has no captaincy experience. Yes Lyon's Mahamadou, Essien and Baraja are good players but you have to look for a REAL leader of a player with quality Ballack has. Michael has been captain of both club and Country (Bayern Munich & Germany) so has Vieira and Ballack is a year younger than Patrick so Michael has time to make it BIG in the Premiership! Ballack scores at a rate of 1 goal per 2 games for Germany at International level! He won the German Play of the Year Award, his a World Cup finalist and won multi Bundesliga titles. Ballack is not only good in attack, but he is also good in defence as well. He can protect the back four well and a player like that we need. We must not let this oppertunity slip away. We have already sign one player fro the Bundesliga but with the amount of money Juventus offered us lets go and sign Ballack! Manchester United are linked with him and Bayern's coach wants Ballack to sign a new contract to stay in Munich. Ballack is the perfect player for Vieira, we have to turn our attentions to him insted of Essien and Wright-Phillips players Chelsae are interested in and lets go back to the Bundesliga market and get Ballack who will get on well with Hleb and Lehmann because he has played along side and against them. He's an established European player that can help Arsenal win the Champions League. Hleb said he is the missing link to our European campaign and Ballack will be the Icing on the cake for our chances of winning the Champions League! Michael plays for one of European greats! We have to sign him!!
I'm not writing this for fun, i'm not kidding around, this isn't a joke comment, this is a serious real message that will hopefully get through to Arsenal that this is a player that has to be signed. We can't wait too long! Sign Ballack put him in central midfield alongside Fabregas, Reyes and Hleb. Maybe have him as vice-captain and give the captaincy to Lehmann who should by now be looked at as one of Europe best goalkeepers. Oppertunitys to sign players like Ballack don't come oftern. Liverpool have their own German midfield Champions League winner in Hamann, lets have our own "German hitman" and you can't get any bigger nowadays than Michael Ballack!!!
Please who ever reads this message, whether you're a boy, man, girl or woman, don't take this message for granted, please back it up and get it through to the Arsenal football club Michael Ballack is so IMPORTANT!!!
Cygan is crap!! But Senderos and kolo are decent players and particularly Senderos is hungry for first team regular football. I don't think we have too many problems. Just a decent central defender and maybe another good forward...but we have Reyes, Henry, Bergkamp. Pires scores a hell of alot as well!! We are in good shape and we haven't had to spend millions like the bunch of monkey boys down the road at chelski!!
Sorry cant leave Cygan alone as his wages could go towards a great player (doesnt look like Baptista now) money although not tight needs to be spent wisely & Cygan is not wisely, if hes in defensive we all run for cover & hide!
Man U offer only 7 mil for Ballack what should we do? Bapista just a Brazilian. We need many players to get back our vitory. Striker, Midfield defender(Ces..you can't grow up so first???), Central Defender(Cristanval.. you can't get into Sol foot?) , right defender (Ebou.. help us)
Signing ballack would be good but not realistic, Wenger wouldn`t spend the money on him! We do need a replacement for Vieira but WHO? If you remember we lost Tony Adams at the end of his career and we all said who would replace him, AW had Campbell up his sleeve, I think we have to patient and have faith, it maybe that we have to concede that unless chelsea cock up this season we will struggle to win the premiership, but let Wenger do his stuff and next season when we begin a new era at the emirates stadium he will have solved our midfield, keeper, and fox in the box problems! He can`t keep saving all this money up, he must have some big targets lined up, its just not the right time! HAVE FAITH GUNNERS
No doubt that Hleb is a very good buy.
Now perhaps Reyes can concentrade in his striker role and Pires is well covered.
However Lauren, Campbell, Lehman and Vieira's place we still do not have a very good solution like what Chelsea have in their winger position. Shaun, Robben, Duff and Joe Cole provide a very good cover for each other at that position. If we can have such quality, we will not need to worry about the tight schedule any more.
We could never afford the likes of Michael Ballack,any other top established european star, Arsenal have paid a lot of money for the likes of Reyes, Van Persie and Hleb. These guys are not proven superstars. But isn't that wear Arsne's amazing ability lies? Who heard of Henry, Vieira, Ljungberg and Anelka before their move to Arsenal. The only top european player Arsenal have bought in the past two decades is the irrepresible Bergkamp. (Thanks Mr Rioch!)So we should be proud of our amazing team, and our amazing manager whom has stood by our club even when offers from top european clubs have come in.
