ozil signing is for me the best bit of business weve done,Aubameyang is a like for like with Sanchez and Mkhytarian well, dunno,we are no stronger now than at the start of the window BUT with ozil staying and Aubameyang coming in it gives me hope that once TOF finally fucks off we might still have a good squad in place for the next manager.a keeper in the summer and things will look pretty good.

Dear God no... surely not... we wouldn't would we? :shock:

Alex Song is training with Arsenal as he's without a club.

It's the flamini situation all over again!

Johnny Evans is too old and too expensive. the only positive is that he has a good head or mindset that is better than what we currently have at the back.

I think Chelski got the worst out of the triangular transfer saga with Giroud. A player who never had any pace, was pretty lazy movement wise both in and around the box and as we saw last night, still hasn’t figured out the offside rule.

Not one of the better strikers to wear the shirt over the last 30 years. Despite scoring over 100 goals for Arsenal, he never had one season where he scored more than 20 in the league.

I don't see how Le Lampost is going to fit into the Chavs' style of play. I can't see hazard, Willian, Pedro, Moses or Alonso belting down the line, looking up for the Cf and then waiting 5 minutes whil Giroud lumbers up into the area.

Maybe Conte will go long-ball?

Does anyone know how long he's signed for? Because he won't be getting any quicker over the next few years.
BBC says 18 months. It will be interesting to see how they use him as they seem to have been linked to anyone with a bit of height regardless of ability. The problem for me is that presumably our option from the bench is now going to be Danny Welshit. :banghead:
TBH we don't have an option from the bench really.

We signed Aubameyang for €60m which set in motion a process that allowed Chelsea sign Giroud for about one third of that amount...Does that make Arsenal financially doped.?

Sorry i just cant get over Giroud to Chelski. Just seems wrong to me. Yes!! I know the Pierre conundrum needed this but. But its a shite situation to have found ourselves in.

Why? Giroud never gave us the goals when we needed them to win the league a few years back.

Chelski has been done over like a kipper, signing a striker who never had any pace and is on the wrong side of 30.
