And maybe Man U left Carrow Road several weeks back realising they were no match for little Norwich City!!!!!
Congratulations to Arsenal on taking the Cup home - on the day they weren't the best team but throughout the season they were by far the most exciting.
Can someone explain to me why we have to have them.If the F.A.Cup Final finishes level why can't the teams each hold the trophy for six months? As for which team qualifies for European competition-the one which finishes highest in the league.Or am I missing something?I don't support either team but the fact is on the day Arsenal were totally outplayed by a United side that tried to win the game.Long before the end it was obvious Arsenal had resigned themselves to penalties which they converted and thus 'won' the F.A.Cup.
Stop thinking about players like gerrard ...
What arsenal need is :
- a keeper : Gregory Coupet (Lyon)
- a midfield : Carvalho (CSKA Moscow)
- a defender (center) : gallas is not in mourinho's plans so why not ???
- a striker (if van persie don't come back) : Alexander Frei (Swiss striker) could be an excellent second hand !!!!
Straight to the point about who arsenal should sign...........
Cudicini>>>of course...he's a very good keeper...best keeper of the EPL in 2003/04...
Given>>>very talented...very good choice...
Frey>>>wenger wanted him before but dun realy know about him...can any1 tell me about him....?
Huth>>>i think he's got potential...working with defenders like campbell can increase his standards...
Ujfalusi>>>in all the CM4 games...he stats were very high...but in real life???some one please tell me about him...?
Trabelsi>>>right back would keep lauren awake...They are about the same standard...Would be a very good edition...Wenger also eyed him before.
Mexes>>>where did he go...?he was supposed to be a big miss for france when he got injured before the Euro 2004...
*Wenger should also get 1 more good and proven center-back...I dun mind Demichellis or collochini of argentina...*
Essien>>> not much to say...he's on every1's mind...
Guti>>>could add depth to the squad...has Champions league experience...
Govou>>>seems he wants to leave Lyon...heard good things about him...Why not....?
Jenas>>>I think he is a good talent...puts on spirited performances almost everytime...
Lukas podolski>>>played very well for germany in the Confederations cup...
JOaquin>>>talks on him have subsided... why not try our luck..?
Wright-Phillips>>>he is one talented ass...hope ian wright persuades him to join the gunners...
Mikel Arteta>>>wenger was interested in him some time ago...
besides he did well for everton...
*Edgar davids would be a good buy...champions league experience*
Kevin Kuranyi>>>very good player... would love to see him in arsenal colours...
Emile Mpenza>>>heard that he's a good battler but dun really knoe about him...can someone give me details aout him...????
Owen>>>On eyerone's mind...
BAptista>>>linked to the gunners...looks promising...
Andy johnson>>>his favourite team is arsenal.. proved he's a very consistent striker even before comin to the EPL...but to help in Champion's League...i dun know...?
DEfoe>>>he's favourite team is aslo arsenal... so just get ur ass over here defoe...
Miccoli>>>played very well for, i think, fiorentina....
Adriano>>>the perfect arsenal buy...henry's pace + adriano's strength = bye bye chelsea...
Bellamy>>>talented, pacey, together with henry means headache for deences but he's a trouble maker...wenger can take care of that...
baros>>>not my favourite choice... i dun know how to rate him.
I dun know why wenger sold pennant..i thought he had a great future...plus wenger should cut the crap about young stars and start to look for experince...he should get a 'strong-in-the-air' kind of sriker...he should try to get 1GK, 1RB, 1CB, 1MD, 1ST...but the GK CB and ST are the most important...
I don't think that Arsenal should run out and spend money on someone just to make a move. I am so happy that we didn't get Batista because his style didn't fit well and I like the two young kids in the middle. Was Bustista a 30 million upgrade over Flabini and Fabergasc? Absolutely not.
Goalkeeper is the most obvious problem. One more defenseman might be nice. I wouldn't mind a midfielder, but just a cheap short term older player to help the two youngsters.
Yes, he's a top player, with the speed to rip defences apart, however, we are only loaning him out for a year, and is he going to knock out our top strikers yet? Will he be better than Robinho if we get him? Not too sure, but with a full extra season of top flight football, and some champions league experience, he'll come back in a year a much better player, rather than have him sit on the bench and play in the reserves.
We're supposed to have aspirations for the title, but whilst Chelsea are strengthening their team, we are weakening ours! We finished about 9 points behind them last season - how far will that be this year.
It's not as though we're going to get a replacement any cheaper! Who is on the market? No-one who compares with Vieira, and with Jenas quoted at £12M plus and only £6M in the bank this doesn't represent good value.
Why didn't we sell him last season when we could have got twice the money?
Man Utd didn't sell Keane when he reached 29, and they are offering Giggs a new contract at 31. I would have thought we needed someone of his ability for at least another season whilst we bring the kids through.
I do not have high hopes for this season.
i bet your a man u fan hows the trophy cabinet these days n if your a chelsea fan did rio supply the cocaine 2 mutu or did robben import it frm home up the arsenal u bunch of TOSSERS
Cygan may not have the best buy that wenger has brought in but when you look at it, celtic's gordon strachan has, in my view destroyed the glasgow club.the players hes brought in come from another planet.alex ferguson made a shit buy in djemba-djemba&kleberson.cygan is one of many bad buy's so please leave him alone.let him ride out the last year of his contract and we can leave him to find a new club at the end of next summer.he wont become like wiltord and destroy a different league.cygan will join the likes of scott parker and igor stepanov.
People keep going on about Vieira, and saying how much Arsenal will miss him...and don't get me wrong we will, he was a great player.........but I don't think that is the problem. Arsenal need a new defender (Cygan shit), a great defender to cover injuries, and a new forward. We can't keep letting Henrey score all the goals. I think watching Arsenal against Chelsea in the Community shield, they looked strong in midfield, match better then Chelsea, and I think they will do fine in that position. And what does everyone think about that new signing Helb...? I think he looks fucking great, and will be a great signing!!!!
Having seen the sale of Viera and the failure to land Baptista, everyone wants to see a large arrival at Arsenal. Well was Viera a big signing when he signed for Arsenal? Was Henry? Was Oleg Luzhny? K maybe not Luzny but as true Arsenal fans saw there are PLENTY of youths in the squad who we do what Flamini, Fabregas, Clichy and Van Persie did last season..this campaign. Eboue, Bentley, Lupoli, just to name a few. Did someone mention Owen, I think not!
i tend to agree with you that we are not so desparate for players but if wenger can get for us owen then things will be cool lets be cool and wait coz wenger is a great man and he knows were ,when and what to do.
We don't need to sign any "first team players" we have them already. We need a central defender and a central midfielder to bolster our squad. Gilberto is the heart of our midfield and has been for a few seasons. I think a partnership could develop between himself and fabregas, it's not yet been tested since when Gilberto came back from injury, Fabregas was plugging the right sided midfield role that Ljunberg left through injury. Flamini is also very good...and Hleb is looking hot too.
I disagree entirely. We only have 3 central midfielders (Gilberto, Flamini and Fabregas). If 2 are injured which regularly happened last season, then what? Pires is not a central midfielder as he cannot tackle well enough. We need extra depth in the middle of the park. Remember we have lost both Viera and Edu.
I don't understand. this type of message coming from a
team that have "Emirates" printed on the jersey last season.
A good team do not have to resort to cheap/racist chant just to get ahead. Chelsea is "better off" with you as a supporter.
"BUT I CAN GUARENTEE IF TWO NORTHERN TEAMS WERE IN IT THE GROUND WOULD BE CLOSER TO CAPACITY"
Did you not see the FA Cup Semis?! Blackburn's section was barely half full.
sorry but isnt it all about the future? stop looking at the past i dont support Chelsea but they are the new team to win things now. Arsenal are going nowhere fast
