He may be that anchor Arsenal needs in midfield. Holding midfielders are probably the most underrated players in footy.

Wish Citeh can have a young talent like this. Didn't watch the game but it sounded intense.

The talent is there, Don't know why we can't score in some games, just 4 months ago we dropped on 4 on this same pool team (although they have improved defensively)..

We need to improve on the counter and go for the kill... To much tiki taka (as much as i'm a fan of the concept) in the final third and very few shots from distance/angles...

It was good to see Ox's injection of pace, but AW waited too long (imo) to bring him on... Still a lil salty about Ramsey's goal being dissallowed, instant replay or some review type of system needs to be considered in the near future... Both teams scrapped hard and the result was exactly what these teams are... 3rd/4th place type battle, sadly...

Usually I disagree with most folks opinion about the Arsenal on this thread, but the way we are playing RIGHT NOW, everyone is correct.. We're playing like a solid 3rd/4th place team (as usual)... 

#GOONERS

always looking for the perfect shot...seems to always be an issue. one pass too many or just trying to be too cute. you could hear fans screaming "SHOOOT" in the broadcast laugh.gif

So frustrating mean.gif trying to be too intricate. Just shoot the damn ball.

Chambers was a mess. Gabriel was shaky at first but he bounced back. As mentioned, he had a solid game and I'm looking forward to seeing more of him throughout the season. I have a feeling we will see him play against Newcastle.

It's clear that we need a ST and DM, but we'll have to wait until deadline day to find out.
Would you start Giroud or Theo against Newcastle?

Agreed for the most part on parts about Wenger. I do think Arsenal could stand a better chance at winning the league with Cazorla and Coquelin if they signed a marquee striker like Benzema, primarily cause I expect Arsenal to fall behind in games with the shaky back four. A striker that at least stimulates a dogfight comeback when against the ropes would bring out a better side even with the pair in the midfield.

I love his side of the story of the pep vs zlatan debacle at barca. I wonder how true it is, but either way it is awesome.

Interestingly enough, Emirate pitch is only slightly bigger.

Nah, cuadrado was bought for depth. Mourinho wanted to take it far in the CL and win the league, obviously we know which one didn't happen. However, Cuadrado showed he wasn't ready for the english league with the few chances he was given. The fact that he failed to impress was the nail in the coffin.


If I'm a manager challenging for the title, I can't afford to give playing time to a player that's supposed to be fitted for the league or at least show that they can make **** happen. I understand cuadrado wasn't given enought time and I agree, but you can't give a player a lot of chances, it can cost you points cost you chances. Besides, as soon as cuadrado joined William kicked into overdrive.

Meh, sucks it didn't work out for cuadrado, I'm sure if Chelsea was aiming for the mid table he would have been given more chances to develop but when you got opponents like citeh trailing behind you, ready to over take you position on top of the league last season, you really can't afford to make many mistakes or take chances like you would if you were a mid or low table team.

Being loaned out to Juventus doesn't help cuadrado either. Why send him back to the league he was good in but couldn't translate to the english league, where chelsea need him? hmmm... should have been loaned out to a mid talbe team in the epl like they did with Moses.

He'll be given the Italian Special which is the loan with an option to buy. Juan is 27 already, don't expect to see him back in Blue ever again.

Let my dude flourish again the Series A pimp.gif

He is a type of player that needed the ball flowing through him. He's not technically disciplined to have to get the ball and play the right pass in a system. He wasn't a type of player Chelsea needed but he did offer some pace and flair to that team. Some big clubs just need one or two guys to be the man and that's Chelsea with Hazard and Costa

Look at Real Madrid for example. Bale and Benzema is night and day. Benzema fits his role perfectly as he is willing to make the extra pass or play. Bale gets criticized for doing too much instead of the right decision. Can't have too many chiefs and no indians.

Don't think he will be starting at Juve either, but man are they stacking up in the depth chart.

BARCA DISMISS NEYMAR RUMOURS

Barcelona have brushed aside media speculation linking Neymar with a world record transfer move to Manchester United, revealing the club will soon offer the Brazilian superstar a contract extension.

Reports in England claimed United were prepared to spend £240million to bring the 23-year-old to Old Trafford.

"Those are just rumours and what people write but there is nothing to it," Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu told Catalunya Radio.

"Neymar is happy at Barca. We don't want Neymar to leave at all.

"He is a young player that has an international football projection above the norm. He has helped us a lot in our recent successes.

"In a few months' time we will discuss his contract extension as he has three years left on his current deal.

"We want him to stay for many years, three, five, 10 or even 15 years more with us."
ILLARRAMENDI SET FOR SOCIEDAD? (Click to show)
ILLARRAMENDI SET FOR SOCIEDAD?

He has been linked with a move to Liverpool in the Premier League, but reports in Spain claim Asier Illarramendi is close to returning to Real Sociedad from Real Madrid.

The 25-year-old has been unable to hold down a first-team place since moving to the Bernabeu in 2013 and, according to Marca, is now set to re-join Sociedad.

Apparently he will cost David Moyes' side €15million (£10.9million) and the deal could be announced today.

WEST HAM TURN TO ZAZA?

Italian centre-forward Simone Zaza could be the answer to West Ham's striker problems.

We understand the Hammers have been negotiating with Juventus over a £1.4million loan move with an option to buy set at £11.5million.

Juventus are pushing for the move since it would give him more playing time. Zaza is looking for an opportunity to shine so he can play in the Euros next summer. A decision is expected tomorrow.
MARIN UPDATE (Click to show)
MARIN UPDATE

Chelsea winger Marco Marin began a medical this morning in Turkey and is expected to complete his move to Trabzonspor later today in a deal believed to be worth £1.8million.

The German winger joined Chelsea in 2012 but made just five appearances for the first-team, scoring a solitary goal.

Marin went on loan to Sevilla, Fiorentina and Anderlecht but failed establish himself during those spells.

CHELSEA HOLD GARAY TALKS

Chelsea are in talks with Zenit Saint Petersburg over the signing of defender Ezequiel Garay, according to Sky Italia.

Our colleagues in Italy understand negotiations have started for the 28-year-old, with the two clubs trying to reach an agreement. Roma are also thought to be interested.

Garay is believed to have emerged as an alternative target to Everton's John Stones, for whom the Premier League champions have had three bids rejected.
BALOTELLI COMPLETES MEDICAL (Click to show)
BALOTELLI COMPLETES MEDICAL

Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli has completed his medical at AC Milan and declared his delight at returning to the Rossoneri ahead of his loan switch.

Both clubs have yet to announce the deal, which will see the Italy international represent the San Siro side for the 2015/16 campaign.

"I’m happy to have returned," Balotelli said. "I have little to say, just that I'm looking forward to train and prove my worth.

"I'm physically well - I just have to train with the squad. I have a lot of motivation but I just have to work and not speak.

"Did I think I would return to Milan? Yes, I always had Milan in my heart and I always had hope that I would return one day.

"Will I end my career here? I just have to start to work and have a good year, just have to work and that's that."

DE GEA MISSES BRUGES TRIP

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has been left out of the club's 18-man squad for their Champions League play-off second leg with Club Brugge.

The news will only act as fuel to the speculation which surrounds the Spaniard, who has been constantly linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer.
CUADRADO MOBBED ON ARRIVAL (Click to show)
CUADRADO MOBBED ON ARRIVAL

Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado was mobbed by fans as he arrived in Turin ahead of his proposed loan move to Juventus.

Here's what he had to say shortly after arriving in Italy: "We all know that Juve is a great club, among the best teams in Europe.

"They have everything to win the Scudetto (Serie A). I hope I can give Juventus my best, 100 per cent.

"I didn't expect to receive such a warm welcome from the fans in Italy but they have always welcomed me with open arms and that makes me very happy.

"The fans' support will give me further motivation to do well."
DE BRUYNE DECISION DAY (Click to show)
DE BRUYNE DECISION DAY

A decision regarding the future of Wolfsburg attacking midfielder Kevin de Bruyne is expected to be made on Friday, according to reports in Germany.

An update on the long-term Manchester City target’s future is expected ahead of Wolfsburg’s Bundesliga clash with Schalke.

Interestingly, Bild are claiming Bayern Munich and Manchester United have entered the race for De Bruyne’s signature.

The German sports daily claim United are interested, although it is understood De Bruyne would prefer to stay at Wolfsburg for one season ahead of a summer switch to Bayern next summer.

What is clear is that De Bruyne will not join Bayern this summer. "We definitely won't be active," said Bayern media director Markus Hörwick on Monday.
INTER EYE LAMELA (Click to show)
INTER EYE LAMELA

Inter Milan are weighing up a move for Tottenham winger Erik Lamela, according to Sky Italia.

Our colleagues in Italy claim Inter will consider signing the Argentina international should a move for their primary target, Wolfsburg’s Ivan Perisic, fail to materialise.

The two clubs have reportedly agreed general terms on an initial season-long loan believed to be worth €6million (£4.4million).

Lamela could then move on a permanent deal to the San Siro next summer for €14million (£10.2million)
ARSENAL TURN TO CAVANI? (Click to show)
ARSENAL TURN TO CAVANI?

Arsenal have switched their attention to Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani, according to the Daily Mirror.

Arsene Wenger is reportedly still in the market for a stellar signing before the transfer window shuts next Tuesday.

And, with Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema quashing rumours linking him with a move away from the Bernabeu, Cavani has re-emerged as potential target.
