Naughty ref! Arsenal in Cuadrado talks? Jack starts as Roy rings the changes!

Morning all.

Hmmmm!!

Hmmmm!!

And we think the referees are bad in the Premier League!

Surely this is nearly as bad as watching Mike Dean celebrate a goal against us, which he appeared to do during one particular match! Actually, not quite as Dean is simply an arse who hates Arsenal!

This referee is from New Zealand, his name is Peter O’Leary and after the match he officiated a couple of days ago, he can clearly be seen to be enjoying the result with one of the Nigerian players.

The moment hasn’t gone unnoticed either, in fact a petition has been raised and to date, there are over 20,000 signatures calling for O’Leary to be banned from officiating any more fixtures during the World Cup.

Add his little celebration to the fact that he disallowed Edin Dzeko’s early goal to stand during Saturday’s Group F clash, he also failed to spot a foul on Emir Spahic in the build-up to Peter Odemwingie’s winning goal. That winning goal saw Bosnia exit the tournament.

Actually, and I know I haven’t watched all the matches in this World Cup, but the ones I have always seem to have a dodgy set of officials and it’s not good for the game, let alone this huge competition. Of course it’s not helped by diving cheats like Arjen Robben etc but surely the standard of officiating needs be a lot higher and not only at the World Cup but in football generally.

Last night Brazil stepped up their performance with a 4-1 battering of Cameroon. They will now face Chile in the knockout stages who were beaten 2-0 by Holland. Holland will now face Mexico who beat Croatia 3-1 and the other game of the night saw Spain batter Australia 3-0. Both of those two countries will now head home.

Talking of heading home, England will do just that after tonight’s fixture against Costa Rica and it’s all change for Roy Hodgson’s side.

Foster, Jones, Cahill, Smalling, Shaw, Wilshere, Lampard, Milner, Lallana, Barkley, Sturridge will all start tonight and I strongly suspect we’ll see a very different game to what we have done over the last couple of weeks. Apart from Lampard and Milner, these players are no doubt the future of England and they’ll play without fear. Costa Rica are on form and England will need to be too if they are going to ensure they don’t leave Brazil without winning one game…

The other fixtures see Japan face Columbia, Greece against Ivory Coast and Italy play Uruguay.

In transfer gossip:

The Daily Express report that we are set to open talks with Juan Guillermo Cuadrado of Fiorentina and nearly all the newspapers are suggesting that Arsenal have turned down a £6 million offer from Manchester United for Thomas Vermaelen.

£6 million, what are they smoking in Manchester……..

That’s your lot, have a good day guys….

    The Express reckon AW has had talks with the agent of Sanchez…

    I so hope they are right and we get him…..

    Cuadrado seems to be one interesting player! I didnt know he played 11 of his games last season as ‘forward-left’ and 10 at ‘defensive-midfielder-right’ – as well as virtually everywhere else on the pitch! Versatile to say the least… http://www.whoscored.com/Players/44868/

    That guy refereed us on the weekend!
    Over rules his linesman on an offside from 30 yards back lol.
    Morning all.
    Referees are the enemy :)

    He’s a Kiwi Scott what did you expect favours……?

    He’s upside down just like you but your not on his Xmas list…! ;-)

    Rico………… BE QUIET….! DO NOT MENTION THE “S” WORD…!

    Versatile Roger, AW likes those…..

    Sounds like he’s pretty hopeless then Scott…

    Or did you mean ‘signings’….

  8. Nickie

    June 24, 2014 at 10:17am

    Morning Rico, morning all,

    Never saw this happen but how terrible. The officiating has been very poor over this World Cup and it does need to be investigated.

    I’d rather “S” over Balotelli any day of the week, hopefully this is true. Cheaper, more effective, faster, more skilful, strong, can finish. He and Giroud would work well

  9. Lee

    June 24, 2014 at 10:19am

    Kiwi’s aren’t they Aussies with class??

  10. rico

    June 24, 2014 at 10:20am

    Scott, Fulham have signed Adam Taggart…

  11. Scott From Oz

    June 24, 2014 at 10:20am

    Onya Wath!!!
    Rico, The guy was atrocious.
    Still, most referees are!

  12. rico

    June 24, 2014 at 10:21am

    Morning Nickie, me too, every day of the week.

    Lee, hope you have a hard hat on… ;)

  13. Scott From Oz

    June 24, 2014 at 10:22am

    Rico, that’s news to me….thanks.
    He’s done really well over here, but obviously it’s a massive step up.
    I wish him well…..the more Aussies playing at a decent level, the better.

  14. rico

    June 24, 2014 at 10:22am

    Some are an embarrassment and shouldn’t be anywhere near a football pitch..

  15. goonster

    June 24, 2014 at 10:23am

    Seriously what happened to adam rico? Am freaking out. Gee somebody call him. It’s unlike adam to go missing on HH. WATH be a pal call him please.

  16. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 10:23am

    You could have a point Lee, I always thought they were the same til I realised the Kiwi’s were way better at the game they play with the egg shaped ball they throw about…!

  17. rico

    June 24, 2014 at 10:23am

    Only just been confirmed Scott, will be interesting to see how he gets on over here.. Fulham survived the drop didn’t they?

    Morning HH…

    June 24, 2014 at 10:24am

    In as much as the ball is a contested ball no faul in the build up to the goal. but disallowing dzeko goal was a mistake by the officials.

  20. rico

    June 24, 2014 at 10:25am

    Actually, they were relegated, the Championship for Taggart then but it’ll be good for him..

  21. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 10:25am

    Taggart… ain’t he that Jock detective….?

    Stan, Adam is fine he’s just busy…!

  22. Lee

    June 24, 2014 at 10:25am

    I think Kiwi’s are clever Aussies that swam to New Zealand….saw the light!

  23. rico

    Adam is fine Goonster, I’m sure he’ll pop his head in soon.

    Are you positive WATH?

  25. bnsbbnsb

    £6 million, what are they smoking in Manchester……..

    In fact it was 6 million and 1

  26. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 10:26am

    Lee, how the f**k did they swim with that poxy big ball n chain…?

  27. Tai Emeka Obasi

    June 24, 2014 at 10:27am

    As a Nigerian, my interest is obviously that of referee Peter O’Leary. I didn’t see the clip showing him ‘appearing to celebrate’ with any Nigerian player. He couldn’t have disallowed the goal if his assistant didn’t raise the flag.

    Emmanuel Emenike used raw power to go past Emir Spahic leading to the goal. It was NEVER a foul.Lastly, same ref allowed Edin Dzeko’s handball to go unpunished while the Bosnian almost equalised at the dead but for Nigerian keeper’s agility and luck! Trying to even out the offside error?

    You failed to add that errors are part of the game and that, for once in a very long while, Nigeria benefited neither did you acknowledge that on balance of play the Africans deserved their victory.

    June 24, 2014 at 10:28am

    Alright maam….Cuadrado I ll have in a heartbeat. This guy is the shit. He ll make ozster even better plus OG could score 35 goals next season with him on the team. The fact that he can play in the defense makes it sweeter but I don’t see this happening. Barfa and Madrid are his likely destination.

    Man Utd are about to sign Herrera…

  31. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 10:33am

    Rico, Don’t they already have a Herrera… which one… there’s about 15 at the world cup alone…!

  32. goonster

    June 24, 2014 at 10:35am

    Really??? Wow great player but if we get either of Cuadrado or sanchez then am not worried about them. Either of those guys ll improve us tremendously. Both of them ll makes us world champions :grin:

  33. Adam

    June 24, 2014 at 10:35am

    Morning Rico and all. Hi Stan. Lovely that you thought about me.

    What happened adam? Trying to give me a heart attack huh? Are you ok?

  40. Adam

    June 24, 2014 at 10:45am

    I am fine Stan. I was involved in some trials for a new psychedelic drug and I have been on a journey on the astral plane. I was gigging with Hendrix and Jim Morrison just last night.

  41. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 10:46am

    Isn’t he about 17 Rico…. He looks it….! Is he any good…?

    Seems they going to have to pay mega dosh for a left back as well… Hope he plays well tonight and Saint’s put another 5 mill on their asking price lol..!

    Adam, r u ok, Stan has been very worried about you….!

  42. ktr7

    June 24, 2014 at 10:47am

    Good read rico.I have to disagree with you on Nigeria’s goal against Bosnia.There was no foul there.Emenike is a beast physically and he just used raw power to get past the defender.he did it about 5 times in that game alone.its similar to how Drogba used to bully our defenders.Dzeko’s goal should have stood I agree though.

  43. goonster

    June 24, 2014 at 10:48am

    Oh wow that sounds like fun…glad you re ok big guy. Got me worried for a second there. How’s the missus?

  44. luznic

    June 24, 2014 at 10:49am

    Morning Rico and all, Tai Emeka Obasi that’s correct, he didn’t celebrate with the keeper that was a friendly greeting, and the coach of Mexico Miguel Herrera had the same friendly greetings with the Uzbekistan official yesterday also, The Africans won don’t play it down to luck, 20,000 signatures all Bosnians, is Manchester United trying to sign the Mexican coach or the player or Bilbao player Under Herrera

    No idea Wath, never heard of him but he’s costing them £28 million…

    Michu is off to West Ham…..

    Rio signs for Qpr…

  47. ktr7

    June 24, 2014 at 10:50am

    I’d lose my s**t if we were to sign Alexis…he is PERFECT for us.

  48. goonster

    June 24, 2014 at 10:50am

    Kt I was going to say the same thing. The Nigerian dude did nothing wrong. That’s a good goal rico. If OG had done that am sure not of us will begrudge him. Like Kt said dzeko’s goal is legitimate though.

  49. Adam

    June 24, 2014 at 10:51am

    Hi Wath. I am we’ll thank you but suffering with hay fever. Never had it before but something has triggered it this year. I think it might be the dawning of the age of Aquarius.

  50. Tai Emeka Obasi

    June 24, 2014 at 10:52am

    Again, Ktr7, spot on on Sanchez. he’s the nearest to Suarez presently in world football. At Arsenal, he’d blossom…though physically, Balotelli is a beast!

  51. goonster

    June 24, 2014 at 10:52am

    Hahahahahahhaha stop it adam I swear if I pee on my jammies I ll come for you…Kt if we sign “S” I ll probably go bonkers. Whatever that means :grin:

    The peace is broken….Adam is back :)
    How are you mate?
    Have no fear, Wath, Lee and Stan have been sticking it to me in your absence…bastards, they are.

    Good read Rico…

    I am with Kt re ref and goal, pure power in this case…

    Yesterday I was amazed how much leeway the ref gave the Brazilians against Cameroun… that Fred goal was as offside as a Suarez cheating but hey…
    ——————
    Potter posted some interesting info on Cuadrado last night re his double ownership…

    Personally, I see the Cuadrado deal as reminiscence of the Hazard story…

    Allegedly a deal was agreed over a year ago for him but we decided to redraw our offer when we became aware of his ownership situation…
    He now has an EU passport so he can go to any team he wants…

    I am with goonie, Cuarrado looks like he will be going to Barca as a RB unless AW is planning to use him as an attacking RB.. but may only work in a 3-5-2 formation which we do not play…

  57. rico

    June 24, 2014 at 11:02am

    Thanks Kt, fair enough, I stand corrected then… ;)

  58. goonster

    June 24, 2014 at 11:04am

    Tee hee :grin: scotty oz i see your Australia team is taking an early trip home. Too bad I was looking forward to us whupping the tar out of ya again. Maybe 9.0 in the quarter finals would have been fair. Don’t you think? :grin:

  59. rico

    June 24, 2014 at 11:05am

    Nickie, that was Wath’s handy work… ;)

  60. Nickie

    June 24, 2014 at 11:06am

    The fee quoted for Cuadrado as a right back is ridiculous. Not my preferred choice as right back or attacking winger.

  61. rico

    June 24, 2014 at 11:06am

    Thanks Ts.

  62. goonster

    June 24, 2014 at 11:09am

    Ginge Cuadrado is likely headed to the camp nou. Maybe arsene is just doing the sensible thing talking to both agents if he really is talking to them. You can’t trust the British tabloids.

  63. rico

    June 24, 2014 at 11:10am

    Morning luznic..

  64. goonster

    June 24, 2014 at 11:11am

    Nickie he’s not a rb I can assure you. This guy is the shit. The fact that he can play at the rb position is an added incentive. Hope we get him but it’s a long shot.

  65. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 11:16am

    Stan, Our master plan is to get Bartha to buy as many players as possible so they have to sell a few and we grab one that we want..! Makes total sense, when we linked with a player the world decides to go buy them… So you make out you want someone and then go get who you actually want… Get it…! Simples….!

  66. ktr7

    June 24, 2014 at 11:16am

    Tai Emenike is a beast physically.he has raw power and pace.Sphaic could not handle him.he just blew past him several times in that game.Nigeria deserved to win overall.

  67. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 11:17am

    Now Scott is questioning that my Mum n Dad gave birth to me out of wedlock… The cheek of it….!

    There he is busy hammering away at that chain and making the odd comment from his garage…. Use an angle grinder Scott it’ll work a treat mate….! Watch the ankle…!

  68. ktr7

    June 24, 2014 at 11:19am

    Tai I wrote a post here a few weeks back in which i said why i was desperate for “S” he has that aggressive nature that i like on top of his undeniable talent.Goonie am telling you i’d lose my s**t if we were to sign him.

  69. Nickie

    June 24, 2014 at 11:21am

    Goonster,

    Yeah I knew he wasn’t a right back which is why signing him as a RB for €30+ is even more ludicrous lol. If we’re going for a wide attacking option i’d prefer someone that’s an CF/Winger Hybrid like Dirty “S” :)

  70. luznic

    June 24, 2014 at 11:22am

    Scot yes it really did make for good reading, sorry about your soccer team, anyway you do really make England Miserable in Cricket

  71. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 11:24am

    Kt, if you mention the “S” word again your going in the bin………..

    NO MORE “S” WORD………………. It’s “S” not S*****z….!

    You’ll jinx it happening…!

  72. ktr7

    June 24, 2014 at 11:24am

    ts there is certainly something to the cuadrado rumours.personally i prefer sanchez.Cuadrado for me is an excellent dribbler;the best in serie A but for me he has inconsistent decision making.he also doesn’t score alot which is a handicap considering we play a lone striker system.Sanchez makes better decisions,scores more and is a hell of a dribbler too.

    Unless Wenger plans on playing him as RB which would be a waste imo i don’t exactly see where we’ll fit him in.

  73. Tai Emeka Obasi

    June 24, 2014 at 11:24am

    Yes, Kt…in my personal letter to Arsene Wenger, I begged him to ignore the temptation of bringing Cesc Fabregas back and go for “S”…the only player that can, when given the license, replicate what Suarez does on pitches. Wenger did ignore Fabregas…I’m now praying he gets me “S” too!

  74. goonster

    June 24, 2014 at 11:25am

    Kt don’t get your hopes up compadre. It’s not gonna happen. We ll probably sign adam Johnson and milner with africa’s next George weah pierre utongo umbongo :grin:

  75. ktr7

    Wath, why so nasty…..I’m crying over here!
    Stan, 9-0….I reckon you guys should quite while ahead….our boys could wear clogs and beat you next time.
    Luznic, we whack theoms at cricket, but like Darts and Football, it’s hardly played over there, so no real challenge :)

  85. luznic

    June 24, 2014 at 11:36am

    Wath……with the English press the ‘dickheads’ just follow public opinion, decision making kills English spot and the press does a good job in promoting it, anyway England is thriving with the egg ball now and they just won the Junior Championship maybe that can lift the spirit

  86. goonster

  87. rico

    June 24, 2014 at 11:36am

    Kt, been thinking about what you said yesterday and I reckon you could be right, if we were to sign the ‘S’ – no other striker in, unless Campbell stays where he is….

  88. rico

    June 24, 2014 at 11:37am

    A better one Stan!

  89. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 11:37am

    Spot on Kt… I think looking at how Aw rates Ox and Serge… my concern is Aw deploying Cuadrado the same way he deployed Lauren/Eboue…

    I doubt Aw will buy Cuadrado and place him ahead of both Ox and Theo…

    The £30M+ fee is taking the piss but the market is for the rich so…

    Kt- are you also surprised we haven’t seen Bacca & Adrian Ramos in this world cup? I think Muriel did not even make the Colombian squad..

  90. goonster

    June 24, 2014 at 11:39am

    Nah…better and me don’t go together maam. Am sorry. I need to express myself rico. Don’t take that away from me.

    June 24, 2014 at 11:40am

    It was funny listening to the drink driver Uncle Ray changing his tune on certain players on TS earlier this morning; before the world cup he had a different story… :)

    These rent a mouth-piece ex pro’s have no dignity imo… lol

  92. luznic

    June 24, 2014 at 11:40am

    Wath you don’t want the S word jinxed? might we just say Sanchez watts so we know we haven’t jinxed the Alexis….just the watts

  93. Nickie

    June 24, 2014 at 11:40am

    I’d like that, Campbell back, Sanogo out on loan, Giroud and “s”. Options of Theo and Pod to play up top we would be in a much better position.

    Wenger doesn’t want to displace Giroud so someone coming in to compliment him or play the odd game upfront is more likely.

  94. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 11:41am

    Goonie, just substitute cr**ming with ‘stats’ and you will by-pass Rico and Wath’s dubious filter :P

  95. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 11:42am

    luz, spot on, decision makers in English sport for the most part are stuck up egotistical tosspots who have their heads up their bums…!

    The media have an agenda and for the majority the right people are never installed to run things correctly.

    It seems the rugby youth is well run and getting talent in it’s not transferring that to the national side.

    As for the footie and cricket i despair…!

    There are similarities there sometimes with how Arsenal are run as well but I now hope that’s been solved.

    Ts…………….. thin ice matey that sin bin is empty at present… sit back in that armchair and behave :P

    Luz, no mention what so ever of the name “S” even if it’s a watt lol

  100. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 11:45am

    I’ve gone off Bony Ts, I quite fancy Dirk Kuyt….! ;-)

  101. ktr7

    June 24, 2014 at 11:45am

    ts am surprised actually.however i heard that Pekerman prefers Teo because he always delivers for the NT.he is kind of like podolski for Colombia.i hope that now they have qualified we see more of the fringe players today.I like Quintero personally.

  102. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 11:48am

    :P Wath… well I don’t mind getting into the sin bin if you allow Malaga Gooner back.. damn I miss his gibberish… I have been looking all over for him on the net but no luck…

    ‘ Higuain has emailed his medical results to Aw; once it is recieve the deal will be announced’ :D classic

  103. luznic

    June 24, 2014 at 11:48am

    Bony?? he’s good but he cost Swansea 12m they won’t let him go for nothing less than 22m why not buy S and get Campbell back and Wath can hawk Bony up to the spuds they need him after Soldado forgot his scoring boots at the Mestella

  104. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 11:50am

    Interesting Kt; I didn’t know that.
    I was expecting to see Quintero and Seb perez as the pivot but it look slike since our Home Office refused Seb his work permit to join us his career has not been the same.

  105. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 11:51am

    If we have Giroud, Campbell and bought “S” would you all be happy with that…? We’d have Poldi, Theo and possibly Ox to fill in as well in emergencies. WOn’t mention Sanogo as i think he def needs a year with Olympiacos…!

    D you still think we need a winger as well..? Is Theo, Serge, Ox and Poldi enough and are they proper wingers..?

    Ts, you can chat with Malaga to your hearts content in the sin bin ;-)

  106. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 11:51am

    lol Luznic;Soldana may come good in the 2nd season..

    He was always going to be a bad fit imho…

  107. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 11:52am

    I will be happy with that Wath…

    Remember for the CoC we have Eisfield and Ryo on the fringes…

    June 24, 2014 at 11:54am

    Wath, someone told me MG and Micko shared the same IP address :P

  109. ktr7

    June 24, 2014 at 11:55am

    rico i still see it that way.Wenger for the past year or so has said he is looking for a player that can play with or without Giroud.Wenger loves Giroud and he’ll play alot next season.unless we get a physical midfielder or a big CF to replicate Giroud’s role in defending set pieces and his physicality he is going to play alot.

    Taking that into consideration “S” is perfect.he can play with Giroud or without.I can see us playing similar to liverpool in some games with walcott being instructed to push high up the right to give support to “S” if he starts up front to give support.its similar to how Suarez played majority of pools games from the right but stayed high up to form a front 2 with Sturridge.

    All this is hypothetical…sign him up 1st!!!!

  110. luznic

    June 24, 2014 at 11:56am

    Wath, that’s a perfect Combo, get it done but I love Arsene because he always gives us surprises I still try to look at Ozil in an Arsenal shirt I still don’t believe he brought him in, Sirnogoal will come good he just needs to be loaned to Crystal palace with Tony pulis, Quintero that boy is a lovely footballer just too short even shorter than SC19 I think

  111. Scott From Oz

    June 24, 2014 at 11:56am

    Is that where Malaga is?
    Poor bugger.
    His tips and rumours kept HH ticking over in some dull and dreary times.

  112. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 11:56am

    Dont forget Afobe’s contract has been extended… will he be the first striker to make it with us…
    His loan spell was not as successful as he might have hoped but his off the ball runs are second to none… I see him as a version of Benzema as TH14, Mozart and Pires said back then…
    Before his injuries TH14 and co all raved about him…

  113. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 11:57am

    If Eisfield doesn’t get into the frame this season Ts he’s a gonna…. Ryo is there to sell shirts i’ve decided..!

    Its a shame Turan is joining Barca. He would have been perfect for us on the LHS.we had the opportunity last summer.

    I am with you Wath re Eisfield… he is over 21 now so its now or never imo…

  118. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 12:02pm

    Lol Scott you are on form today… I take it you got a big bonus at work :)

  119. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 12:02pm

    Wasn’t me Scott… Rico binned him…. he gave her bum a headache……!

    I think Micko changed IP’s after it was found out Ts, since then it’s all about his WC predictions…. Even AGA took the piss ;-)

    As said your right it’s called get him signed along with a few others….!

  120. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 12:03pm

    Di Maria plus ‘S’ in one window… that will be Aw experiencing midlife crisis… :-)

    It is more likely to see Aw break dancing than such signings… lol

  121. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 12:04pm

    It’s all he fit for Scott, he always injured to run around a football pitch….!

    True story!!!

  124. ktr7

    June 24, 2014 at 12:06pm

    ts how concrete is Turan to barca though?…i’ve also seen that they have bid for Kroos…

  131. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 12:09pm

    I keep telling Micko, rico sells a very reliable pink fluffy dice and crystal ball for £4.99. If he bought one Micko won’t be predicting Spain winning 3-0 when they were already 2-1 down :P

    I bought a few and managed 12 predictions last season..

    That same dice foretold me Spain will be out like France did in 2002…

    The issue is the postage and packaging fee, Rico charges especially when she finds out the potential buyer likes meat… ;)

  133. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 12:10pm

    Kt, they have got Rakatic already… will they go for Turan as well as Kroos…? I think they def a good bet to try for Suarez in a big way.

  134. rico

    June 24, 2014 at 12:10pm

    Malaga is still in full swing on the Arsenal rumour site, I go there when I need to laugh….

    But, the editors of the site do seem to lead people to believe they are itk….

  135. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 12:12pm

    So none of you think we still need a pacy left winger…?

  136. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 12:13pm

    Scott, you don’t admit to dodging tax on HH… :P

    The ether has eyes.. :-)

    Anyway you promised me that car we saw in Picadilly square.. don’t shaft me now… ;)

    Kt- it sounded concrete in May but you never know… I was surprised they went for Rakitic.. I thought Kroos was to replace Alonso at RM as Gundagon was still unfit?

  137. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 12:13pm

    Thanks Rico, for the Mg tip…

  138. rico

    June 24, 2014 at 12:14pm

    Ts about Turan, he knows no more than us and we are all guessing… :)

  139. Nickie

    June 24, 2014 at 12:15pm

    Wath, a pacy left winger would be nice but it is also a luxury. Ox, Pod, Caz, Ozil, “S”, Campbell could all do a job there. If we were to make signings my preferred choices would be.

    RB – Aurier
    Forward/Winger – “S”
    LW – Di Maria/Reus
    DM/CM – Khedira

  140. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 12:17pm

    Lol Rico…

  141. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 12:20pm

    I think if we really do want a proper left winger it gives credence to the possibility that we’d be prepared to let Santi leave……

    I like Khedira Nickie but def not for 30mil if that’s what the mancs r prepared to pay…!

    Rather get Schniederlin for 20mil…! Ts, what about Gonalons…?

    I was interested watching Carvalho against the USA when he came on the other night and he played ok but was passed very easily a couple of times which was a worry… he looked slow n lethargic…!

  142. ktr7

    June 24, 2014 at 12:20pm

    Wath/ts Rakitic is Cesc’s replacement.now xavi has decided to leave they need a similar player to take over since they have no young player to take over.Kroos for me fits the bill better than either Rakitic and Turan.Turan is more of an AM and Rakitic bombs forward too much to dictate play like xavi does.Kroos imo ticks all the boxes.Madrid are interested too i heard.he has to make that choice if he leaves bayern.

  143. rico

    June 24, 2014 at 12:22pm

    I do Wath. Big time.

  144. Scott From Oz

    June 24, 2014 at 12:23pm

    Ginge, I don’t dodge tax, and I’m offended by the implication.
    I pay my accountant to do it hahahaha hahahahaha.
    Wath, the HH curry crew reckon you flew out 10 minutes before I landed :)

  145. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 12:24pm

    Nickie, all very good players but all foriegn with no EPL experience..

    we need at least 1 player from this league imho

  146. Micko

    June 24, 2014 at 12:24pm

    I’ve seen the future wath, we’re gonna have new WC champions by the time this competition is over, mark my words.

    Anyone know when the new jersey’s coming out, Arsenal Australia are fcuking useless, about as helpful as tits on a bull.

  147. Nickie

    June 24, 2014 at 12:25pm

    One of the reasons I chose Khedira for that role is because I think he’d bring an extra 10-20% out of Ozil. Ozil needs to be cared for and I think knowing he has one of his best mates by his side would help him. And Khedira isn’t the worst player i’ve seen :p

  148. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 12:26pm

    Exactly Wath re Calvahlo; I also think he is a bit too young… the plus is that he admitted he is an AFC fan..

  149. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 12:27pm

    Lol Micko.. are Ladbrokes still taking bets o your predictions? :)

  150. Nickie

    June 24, 2014 at 12:28pm

    Ts,

    like Wath said, Khedira isn’t worth 30mil so Schniederlin would be my second choice.

    Out of all the positions we need players for, who in the premierleague would you take? There are better talents abroad. I’d be annoyed if we took Remy for his prem experience over “S” because “S” is clearly the better player.

  151. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 12:28pm

    Scott, that HH curry mob are so pissed they couldn’t tip shit out of a bucket let alone tell you what time I flew out to escape you… It was at least a week beforehand I promise, I was scared you were gonna surprise us a week early :-)

    Micko… world cup winner you say…. Right I’ll go lamp a monkey on that then………… You know what those Aussies r like they in Macau now buyin up all those shirts 2 sell at double bubble

  156. tsgh

    June 24, 2014 at 12:30pm

    Nickie, for attacking players I don’t mind imports but for midfield to defensive players I would rather we went home buys route…

    Especially for the RB and CB roles…

    Personally I like Morgan and I think England should have tried to get him to play for us…

  157. ktr7

    June 24, 2014 at 12:31pm

    Here here ts.Kroos would’ve been excellent for yoonited.good to see he’ll not go there.

  158. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 12:31pm

    Nickie…. Remy along with “S” would be good business though…! Also proper pace in the side…!

    Given a 30mil price tag Ts, Khedira and Carvalho in my opinion would both be on the expensive side and for 20mil I’d def take Schneiderlin. Agree with Nickie on Ozil having his best mate but Schneiderlin does have the prem league experience and is solid physical and no mug with the ball at his feet..!

  159. Scott From Oz

    June 24, 2014 at 12:32pm

  171. Nickie

    June 24, 2014 at 12:48pm

    Yeah, defensive recruits from abroad are always hit and miss. Not sure what right back i’d take on though. Coleman has had a good season but he’s not my cup of tea and I can’t really think of anyone else that would fit/suit Arsenal. Chambers or Clyne? Are they an upgrade on Jenkinson? or maybe Angel Rangel for a couple of seasons. It feels like there’s lack of attainable talent in every position we need lol

  172. ArsenalDK

    June 24, 2014 at 12:51pm

    Scott, absolutely agree!

    But was so devastated by the decisions, that I have now officialy quit watching the WC. And not just because of the Bosnia game. take a look at the first game with Brazil and Croatia, or the Mexico game where they had two good goals disallowed for offside.

    guess i’ll be spending more time on newsnow…

  173. ArsenalDK

    June 24, 2014 at 12:52pm

    June 24, 2014 at 12:57pm

    Not bad rico. We’re not that lucky in Copenhagen. Not this summer i’m afraid, some of my family from London are going to the Balkans, so me and the missus are following them. But I guess 2-3 weeks in Croatia isn’t that bad either ;)

    June 24, 2014 at 12:59pm

    ADK if you coming England for the weather you picked the wrong destination lol ;-) Glad you well mate.

    Ts. We will have around about the 150mil mark to spend on payers with the money from barca on that bloke they sold to the Chavs and the vela cash…!

    No way we can’t spend 30mil on 3 players…! or 40mil on two and another 50 on 3 players..! still doesn’t use up the war chest..!

  178. ArsenalDK

    June 24, 2014 at 1:02pm

  179. Joaquim Moreira

    June 24, 2014 at 1:13pm

    Dzeko scored a clear goal like I wrote a few days ago. Probabaly was a handball for Nigeria but Nigeria goal was a clear one.
    I’ve watched all the games of the world cup. Brazil plays with 14 men on the pitch and at least, one more, outside. Is not only the goals, but the yellow cards, the faults, the offsides, etc. However, if Brazil play with Luis Gustavo-Fernandinho will be better then Luiz Gustavo-Paulinho, Just two robots in the pitch.
    I follow Quadrado season at Fiorentina. He has quality in his way of playing. He plays for both sides.
    I hope the RB is choosen.
    I don’t know how much cost Luiz guatavo but in my opinion, will be a good increment for the team. He can plays with MA and others and give liberty to those ones to concern with attack (and they are more predestinate for attack then defend…)

  180. Nickie

    June 24, 2014 at 1:17pm

    I was just responding to Ts’ comment about defenders from abroad lol I want Aurier, but I can see Ts’ point. I was just wondering which domestically based defenders are right for Arsenal lol.
    But like you say, if you papers say it’s done, it’s definitely done ;)

  181. Wath

  182. Wath

    June 24, 2014 at 1:20pm

    I think decent right backs in the prem lge are few and far between at the moment Nickie…. Most love to get forward but very few can actually defend which surely is the priority… getting forward is a bonus…!

    JM….you follow cuadrado and said that he plays for both sides. Does that mean he plays for his team and opponents as well??? :P

    I thought the Eboue days were over.

    Or does that mean he plays for both sides of the pitch ;)

    ADK, I’d feel hard done too in your shoes. But the ref in that match did little wrong. Offside calls are duties of assistants. No ref calls for offside if flag isn’t raised. And the rules haven’t yet stopped assistants from holding flags.

    Nigeria’s goal was a good goal…NEVER a foul to the build-up.

    Dzeko’s last-minute striker that ricocheted off Nigerian keeper’s leg for the upright…your striker clearly handled the ball in an attempt to chest it down…the ref ignored it, apparently to even out that wrong offside call … but destiny denied Bosnia from equalising.

    Finally, refs are human…we get better views based on replays. The first time Dzeko scored that goal, I personally screamed offside…until I saw the replay. Chances are, if I was equally holding that flag, I’d have raised it too. Calling it a deliberate call from that assistant is taking it rather far. Besides that ‘offside’ goal, I wouldn’t recall any other incident in that match that favoured Nigeria.

    The Africans rode their luck. It happens all the time. I’m never one happy with my team winning unfairly but being an Arsenal fan, it happens against us all the time…and it didn’t stop us from eventually winning our trophy. Your days will come … maybe in four years’ time.

  226. Nickie

    June 24, 2014 at 3:46pm

    Yeah I agree with Hell,

    You cannot justify poor decisions. Ok they’re humans and humans make errors. But referees are trained and money is spent on making sure they’re the best they can be. Celebrating with a team you helped win is a definite no no, refs should be as unbiased as they come. Some of the mistakes at this world cup are unforgivable and downright poor. These referees should go away for further training and not allowed back until they pass probationary period in lower leagues. They should not be allowed near the biggest footballing tournament in the world. Shame that a few games have been ruined by these “referees” and more could have. I have no sympathy for them and they deserve their criticism for continuously poor decisions.

    ADK, I’d feel hard done too in your shoes. I’m a Nigerian and you needn’t be Nichodemus to guess I accepted the result.

    However, I’m not one who enjoys my team winning unfairly. As an Arsenal fan, we’re so much at the dark side of refereeing errors to be happy whenever an opponent, however rare, gets same treatment.

    Nonetheless, no referee ever whistles for an offside when a flag is not raised. And the rules haven’t yet stopped assistants from being in custody of flags. The Edin Dzeko disallowed goal was the assistant’s error…keep the centre ref out of it.

    But both ref and assistants are humans…the most difficult decision to make in football are offside calls…why? Because the responsible assistant must take the decision the moment the ball is kicked. Now, think about having to watch a defensive line and at same time waiting for the player with the ball to kick it! When Dzeko broke free, I personally screamed offside before he scored. Even Dzeko didn’t contest the decision. The replays showed it was a wrong call. If I was holding that flag, I’d have raised it too. Saying that error was deliberate is taking it too far!

    Nigeria’s goal was a very good goal…NEVER any foul to the build-up. The Nigeria striker showed a permissible ingredient in football – raw power!

    Dzeko’s last-minute strike that Nigerian keeper’s leg diverted to the upright … your striker clearly handled the ball inside Nigeria’s six while trying to chest it down…but ref ignored that, apparently interested in evening out that wrong offside call but destiny denied your side the equalizer.

    Besides that ‘offside’ goal, I can’t recall any other incident in that match favouring Nigeria. The Africans rode their luck. As Arsenal fans, we’re used to ref errors but it didn’t stop us from winning our trophy eventually.

    Hard as it is to swallow, I’d urge Bosnians to take it as one of those errors in football and move on. Your days will certainly come…and believe me, in national team football, four years is never a long wait.

    Agag and the others. do you think so? That Suarez is trying to engineer a move away?

    What if now Fifa ban him for three months from football?

    Would Barca and Real want to buy him?

    How much would the dippers fetch for him, especially if he is suspended on national and club level?

    Micko, he really should be given a ban for the rest of the competition. Shows absolutely no sportsmanship. Made me laugh how one of the Uruguayans fixed Chiellini’s sleeve to cover what was presumably the bite mark. and how quickly he pulled his sleeve down again to emphasize his claim that he was bitten. Haha. Someone will be in hot water again…

    Dev, I honestly won’t put it past Suarez to try to create some controversy and the bans are something he might have considered already. As it appears now, the footage is inconclusive, but it is already generating much furore. And Chiellini is certainly already talking about it.

    I don’t think he really cares about what it does to Liverpool, how he will disappoint his fans, how his price may be lowered, etc. He was banking on a bidding war for him last summer, and that did not come to be, he will be up to his old tricks again during this transfer window.

  314. agirlagunner

    Any ban he gets for this incident will be for international football. The club scene will be largely unaffected apart from a possible price drop which his agent will convert into higher wages. Premeditated ?most probably.

    FIFA will find him not guilty. They will accuse the press of over reacting to a ‘coming together in the penalty area’ and dismiss all other lines of appeal, because they are BENT! (Not Darren, bless him).
    Definitely a bullet ducked, no matter how one eyed you may be if Vlad the Uraguayan had joined us we would ALL have been chopped off at the legs if we had tried to ‘gain an advantage by biting a player’!

    No ducking out for Goofy:

    Statement from Fifa:

    “FIFA can confirm that disciplinary proceedings have been opened against the player Luis Suarez of Uruguay following an apparent breach of art. 48 and/or art. 57 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code during the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil match Italy-Uruguay played on 24 June 2014.

    “The player and/or the Uruguayan FA are invited to provide with their position and any documentary evidence they deem relevant until 25 June 2014, 5pm, Brasilia time.

    “According to art. 77 lit. a of the FIFA Disciplinary Code (FDC), the FIFA Disciplinary Committee is responsible for sanctioning serious infringements which have escaped the match officials’ attention.

    “Furthermore, according to art. 96 of the FDC, any type of proof may be produced (par. 1), in particular are admissible, reports from referees, declarations from the parties and witnesses, material evidence, audio or video recordings (par. 3).”

    Although I feel sorry for Giorgio Chiellini, this will surely reduce Suarez value by an awful lot which in turn does us a huge favour as the dippers won’t have mega bucks (sorry) to spend this summer…

    The ban Suarez gets could be worldwide and for up to 2 years. Could be he’ll be stuck in Anfield whilst not playing for a long while.

    I hope FIFA throw the book at him, I really do!

    He must be banned worldwide.

    June 25, 2014 at 9:37am

    The folks on Talkshite Radio reckon, this latest saga will ensure that the bin-dippers keep Suarez as no one will want him.. :D

    Thise folks must have attended the same ‘Imagination School’ as Malaga Gooner. :P

    Dev, AW was asked 3 years ago if he liked El Sharawaay(spelling) or Balo’ and Aw said Balo’..

    I think AW rates him; the issue now will be if AFC will be prepared to pay the asking price in 1 or in installments with performance related clauses. e.g £17m now will £5m in 6months plus £5m after we win something.

    On ‘S’ I hope we have not missed the bus as I said last summer. We literally had him but we dittered until Barca and the player changed their minds.

    I can see him moving to Naples if Higuain is brought to Barca.

  377. Hell Raising Devil

    June 25, 2014 at 9:48am

    Sanchez I rate highly. I would play him either on the left or through the centre. He is fast. If we play the 4-2-3-1 then on the left. But in a 4-4-2 I would play him off OG.

    But he can also play as a lone forward. He did it with Napoli to a good effect against rigid Italian defences.

  378. tsgh

    June 25, 2014 at 9:50am

    If we had ‘S’ Scott, I would play him and Ozil in a front 3 with Ozil having a free role with ‘S’ in the big games.

    I will then pack the midfield ready for a quick counter.

    A front of Theo and ‘S’ and Ox will be frightening.

    It will be like ‘S’ in Serie A. Set-up for counter attcking football

  379. Nickie

    Hell,

    I was sold on the media hype of Balotelli, I wanted him. Now I have to admit I don’t watch him in Serie A, but I remember thinking when watching him for Mancity that he wasn’t exceptional, few good games here and there never really got me excited, no stand out games. His performances this world cup has cemented my thoughts on him, very happy Wenger has said we’re not interested so we can move on.
