No Balotelli. Aurier freed up & Thank heavens for the insulting bid…..

Morning all.

Well last night served up a mixed bunch didn’t it.

Jack Wilshere tried all he could to work his magic for England and had Sturridge been able to find the goal, our man would have set up a lovely goal for England. It didn’t happen and the boys played out a pretty boring draw.

Joel Campbell tried his best to embarrass the England defence but it wasn’t his night in front of goal. This kid is young, he’s raw and he has a lot to learn and only time will prove whether he’s the real deal or not but it’s going to be enjoyable watching him and his Costa Rican side as they progress and it’ll be good to see how he fits in during pre-season at Arsenal. If he ever gets over here of course….

So that’s it for England, I suspect they are in mid-air flying home as I type.

Another team flying home early is the Ivory Coast after they were beaten by Greece and as Japan lost heavily to Columbia, their World Cup campaign is also over.

But the talking point of last night is Luis Suarez. What is going on in that man’s head?

As someone here suggested last night, he needs to either be wearing a muzzle when he plays football or a gum shield when he plays because he’s an absolute danger on the pitch. Not for the first time has he bitten an opponent and this latest incident on Giorgio Chiellini  is his third!

FIFA have already charged him and he could face a ban of up to two years and that ban could be worldwide and I hope it is. There is no place in football for behaviour such as his! This time last summer, I really hoped that we’d get Suarez but now I am so glad we offered that insulting amount of money which ultimately ensured he stayed at Liverpool. Ok he might have won us the league last season but look what problems he’d be causing us now.

Away from that though, the exits of both Italy and the Ivory Coast could see out transfer signings kick off, if we really are looking to sign Mario Balotelli and Serge Aurier.

According to the Express, PUMA are putting pressure on Arsenal to finalise a deal for Mario Balotelli before July 10 so he can feature at our new kit launch and as we know, rumours were rife about Aurier having agreed personal terms with us so if these are true, there is nothing stopping the club getting both deals sorted out real soon.

Although I’m still not convinced Balotelli is the striker we should get because of the baggage he carries around with him and as Luis Suarez proved last night, leopards seldom change their spots…..

Italian football pundit Paddy Agnew doesn’t believe AC Milan are ready to sell him in any case:

I don’t think they’re going to let him [Balotelli] go, it wouldn’t make any sense.

Arsene Wenger has denied any such deal could happen too, he told beIN Sports World Cup show that it was ‘pure invention’.

Trouble is, Arsene Wenger is not known to tell much truth when talking about transfers so anything could happen…

That’s your lot for today, not much to get your teeth stuck into but as we all know, that doesn’t stop Suarez…….

    A lovely post Rico;

    At least AW did not play dumb by saying he had not heard of Balo’ like he did with Santi:-)

    Dev-Re. the Udinese and Milan match comment from previous page it was 2010 the one that ended 3-2 with Huntelaar and Pato spearheading Milans front 2.

    Gattuso was played as a fullback just to counter ‘S’ with Nesta and Abate on teh other side. ‘s’ kept switching from left to right. classic match imo

    Hope you cop a few years on the sideline.

    Morning everyone. I would much rather have Alexis plus another attacker, than only Balotelli or Alexis. Let’s hope that Wenger is about to buy someone as world class as Özil. We need 4 players at least. COYG

  7. rico

    June 25, 2014 at 10:11am

    So do I hope for that Scott..

    Adk, ‘S’ and Remy would do for me…

  8. tsgh

    June 25, 2014 at 10:11am

    Same here Rico re ‘S’ a bit more fluid and less of a no.9. Which will suit us better.

    If Negredo becomes available we should go for him too imo..

    Adk with JC I think that will be enough; with Theo coming back in December-ish

    We also have Afobe… he is bound to get some luck soon…

  9. Wavy

    June 25, 2014 at 10:13am

    Morning all, another fine stimulus for discussion, Rico. Nice one.

    Two things come to mind, from the post:
    Balotelli first. Would you put your head in the mouth of a man hating lion or man eating tiger? No, neither would I? If we bought Balo in would be tantamount to doing just that. He, like Louis Fangchez is a simmering cauldron just waiting to erupt. Just like the man eating dipper. We would all be waiting for Balotelli to fulfil his destiny eg behaving I a totally unacceptable manner and being banned for x amount of games and bringing our club into disrepute. Leopards and spots, as you say Rico.
    Secondly. If the press are to be believed!!!??? Then we. Are. Ring pressured by Puma, a short term, johnnycake come lately sponsor into buy said italian and what’s more, before July 10th. If that were true. You have to ask the question, who is running the transfer policy and buying and selling of players at Arsenal?
    “We don’t need their sort around us” if that is the case.
    Whatever next?

  10. rico

    June 25, 2014 at 10:16am

    Ts, imo, Afobe will be a gonner…

  11. tsgh

    June 25, 2014 at 10:16am

    No team in the world cup has showcased a 2 man upfront effectively but France so I doubt Aw will go 2 upfront.

    AW has traditionally based his formation on Germany’s or vice-versa.

    With Loew playing the 4-1-4-1 that AW, and Pep refined and mastered last season. I doubt Aw will go into the next season with 2 new strikers…

    Chile have opted for a more structured 4-1-3-1-1; Only England, Brazil and Spain have played 4-2-3-1 in this world cup from the bigger teams and it has not really worked well imo…

  12. tsgh

    June 25, 2014 at 10:18am

    True Rico re Afobe but he just renewed his contract.. maybe just so we can sell him for £200k. lol

  13. rico

    June 25, 2014 at 10:19am

    Thanks Wavy.

    I don’t believe the Puma/Balotelli story at all, it’s all probably made up and the press just putting 2+2 together because Mario wears Puma….

    No way would Arsenal, Kroenke or Wenger be dictated to by a sportswear company…

    Morning All,
    Wenger says…. pure fiction regarding Balotelli,
    where did the story come from?
    What we do know is The Arsenal are working flat out to get exceptional signings,because all the top players are ringing up to sign for us..everyone wants to play for us.
    This is not fiction..A Fact..
    We were told this just before the direct debits date for season tickets.
    Nows the time for a cheeky bid for Suarez..offer a quid wenger.

  17. rico

    Thanks Hb.

    Aurier has always been described as being great at going forward and dodgy in defence.

    I’d rather a player who can defend properly first and foremost… Leave the attacking play to the wingers and midfielders…

    Something, someone, anything, just happen soon please.

  23. Family Enclosure Man

    June 25, 2014 at 10:37am

    People are beginning to speculate on the length of ban that Suarez might be facing. Does anyone know if this would relate only to international football or ALL football competitions? Given that this is his third biting offence and he served 7 and 10 match suspensions for the first two, it’s likely to be a really long one this time. What would that do for his prospects of a transfer to RM or Barca, if the ban were to apply to club as well as international footie? I reckon Liverpool could end up paying the man’s wages for half a season while he sits around twiddling his thumbs…

    Morning All
    Morning Rico

    I saw Aurier for the first time, on TV, yesterday, and I have to agree with Henry.
    Good going forward, defensively he so reminded me of Eboue…

    Not sure that he is the answer…

    Busy today, so lata

  25. AndrewH

    Eboue despite being likeable, was never the answer!

    Aurier is young, guys.
    He has plenty to offer and will improve, but how long until he’s ready is the big question.

    1st July AW will get going….. ;)

  29. rico

    June 25, 2014 at 10:46am

    FEM – my guess it’s down to FIFA, I read they have the power to ban him worldwide, whether they’ll have the balls to do that though is a different matter.

    Let’s hope they do…

    Morning Kev, we don’t need another Eboue do we,I’d much rather we stick with Jenks than go there….

    Where’s todays fixtures rico ?

  35. HenryB

    June 25, 2014 at 10:52am

    Family Man,

    FIFA have the power to impose a world wide ban on Suarez, and that would obviously include the Premier League and the CL.

    I do not think they have ever imposed such a ban before, and they normally restrict their WC bans to the current WC tournament and future internationals.

    They are so weak, I would bet he will get a ban that would rule him out of the next 2 or 3 games for bringing the game into disrepute, or for engaging in playful sexual foreplay. :-)

  36. frednerk

    June 25, 2014 at 10:54am

    Suarez has been going around biting people for years..Whats new?
    Lets be fair..who was surprised.

  37. rico

    Micko, darn, I forgot them….

  38. AndrewH

    June 25, 2014 at 10:56am

    A ban for the next 2 or 3 games would be appropriate if he just head-butted. But the dive afterwards!! And of course, being a bit hungry.

  39. tsgh

    June 25, 2014 at 10:56am

    Attacking fullbacks is becoming a thing of the past imho..

    Even Lichtsteiner/Isla have not been attacking as much in the wc as much..
    Only Brazil have used both FB as wingers in their systems I think amongst the big footballing nations/teams
    Germany have chosen to deploy a flat back 4 with France the best team in the WC thus far only attacking with Debuchy most times whilst Evra stays a bit more defensive…

    We need a solid defensively sound RB now…

  46. AndrewH

    June 25, 2014 at 11:02am

    What surprised me was the player trying to pull down Chiellini’s shirt as if showing a bite-mark is a crime!

    And Ian Wright feeling sorry for Suarez. Funny, I don’t have a lot of compassion for him! Actually feel a bit for Rodgers, what can you do when over-payed brats act like this.

    And as for newspaper Headlines ‘He needs help’. Give me strength, I read he was a changed man last year!. About as many times as Joey Barton is a changed man.

  47. rico

    June 25, 2014 at 11:03am

    I’m hoping he’s having little to do with transfers fred…

    Just for you Micko, wouldn’t do that for anyone else you know… lol

  48. tsgh

    June 25, 2014 at 11:06am

    I think the Balo’ temperament is a bit over exaggerated.

    In the last 3 years how many games has he missed through injuries or suspensions?
    He has averaged 30 games out of 38 in serie A over the last 2/3 seasons…
    Yes he gets too many yellows for a striker making fans be on the edge but 22 goals in 34 games won’t be bad for us as Milan are now very weak.

    imo majority of his issues has been off the field. At AFC he will ahve the discipline and structure for him to toe the line…

    Yes Rico, Debuchy has really improved; will Mike Cashley sell to us?

  49. frednerk

    June 25, 2014 at 11:09am

    I don’t think it is, he’s moody, sulky and petulant….

    Can’t find anything on Afobe’s new contract, in fact the only thing I can find suggests he’s now out of contract, that can’t be right can it?

    Ashley would sell I’m sure but he’d be out to sting us….

  51. Nickie

    June 25, 2014 at 11:12am

    When I think of Newcastle I just think of French mediocrity lol. Debuchy is a bit of a hot head, not sure if I’d like him at Arsenal. Although, he is probably the best of a bad bunch of RBs in the premier league at present

  52. rico

    June 25, 2014 at 11:12am

    Nothing to be sorry for fred…

    I think he’s hoping the dippers will give up on him and let him move to Spain. Trouble is, would either Barca or Madrid want him after this…

    Actually, I don’t care, just hope he gets what he deserves….

    I’d love it if he received a full years domestic ban and it leaves Liverpool in the shiz lol Imagine Carragher on his MNF, Liverpool will be back to their poor old ways and he’d be lost. Remy would be a good 2/3rd striker/

    Good Morning to The Lady of the House and all fellow Gooners in residence.

    Has anyone got a link to a transcript of Arsene’s interview on ibIN Sports, I’ve only seen other people’s summary of Arsene’s reply to the Balotelli question?

    Rico – “Trouble is, Arsene Wenger is not known to tell much truth when talking about transfers so anything could happen…” Arsene is like a politician, you must read/listen very carefully to what he has written/said. He rarely, if ever, outright lies; but he is a master of the half truth and misdirection.

    I’d prefer to see us get Alexis Sanchez or Angel di Maria rather than Balotelli.

  58. rico

    June 25, 2014 at 11:30am

    I think he’s fibbed on many occasions, he’s promised us signings and they have never arrived. The January one when he said he would get a left back in on loan still sticks in my mind…

    Cg, I must admit Goonie has been Cuadrado biggest advocate in recent times; I posted a video on Cuadrado about a year ago and the blond Adonis could not more excited than I expected :P

    I thought we would have gotten him last summer; I sent Rico an email telling her about it when I heard we had a bid accepted but I later read IG and Aw decided to back out because of his double ownership issue…

  69. Canadian Gooner

    June 25, 2014 at 11:51am

    Once FIFA have found their cahones, if indeed any of them still possess them, and have dealt with Merseyside Cannibal; perhaps they could address the low standard of officials and possible appeals for a sideline video review of significant decisions.

    I hate to see a team knocked out of competition because the ref was conned into giving a bad decision for a penalty. Yesterday’s award of penalty for tripping over one’s own toes is a prime example.

    The game is so quick, and players so adept at diving, it’s near impossible to be sure one way or the other.
    Blame the players and coaches.

    AW should bid for LS07 again lol, most pundits are just trying to be relevant, once FIFA takes action against him its over. The football world will forget once he score a hatrick. Zidane headbutt a player in the world once and he was forgiven, even though LS did bite on numerous occasion he is still a world class talent which will always hide his baggage.

    Rico – That is the point, he is trying to say nothing, yet still fulfil his obligation to talk to the press. Arsene is like Sir Humphrey Appleby (Nigel Hawthorne) from the old version of Yes Minister/Yes Prime Minister, can talk much but say little or nothing.

    I don’t like the remake of the show.

    Thanks for the telegraph article on Sanchez, Tsgh. Personally, I think Sanchez + Remy suits me really fine, and would come at a totally reasonable price (~35m combo). Add Campbell back and that is a really good attack with pace and flair, complemented by Girouds hold up play and finishing in the box.

    ps Id put some money on the Dutch making the semis or further – in the last 16 the play Mexico, (and if win) then the winner of Costa Rica/Greece in the quarters. Thats favourable, and the reason why you always want to win your group! (take note Arsenal in the CL).

    I disagree Scott,

    Referees are trained. Referees will make mistakes, but it’s the clear cut mistakes and horrendous decisions that ruin games which are unforgivable. Brazil’s penalty against Croatia, the dodgy offside calls against Mexico etc. I’m lenient but there is a cut off point between close call and absolutely outrageous. Rico’s post yesterday on a ref celebrating with Nigeria? lol come on

  88. Nickie

    June 25, 2014 at 12:32pm

    Ts, agreed but the added potential of missing Chewy will almost make their struggles certain. Can’t wait to see how badly they fall

  89. Canadian Gooner

    June 25, 2014 at 12:35pm

    Scott – Diving, especially in the box, is one of my bug bears. In blatant cases like yesterday, a disciplinary committee should be able to review the incident and discipline the player even though the ref has made a decision. To take no further action brings the game and the officials into disrepute.

  90. Scott From Oz

    June 25, 2014 at 12:38pm

    Nickie, I did say “in most cases”.
    Of course some officials aren’t up to it, but these diving cretins make a tough job even tougher, so they should be eliminated from the game.

  91. Scott From Oz

FC Barcelona just went through a major scandal with the Neymar deal, Messi just miss jail time with tax problem, FIFA is corrupt so LS incident happens a good time because all the attention the is taken away from the failure of the English national team, If he only gets ban from intl games he will be playing for Barca or RM next season.

    June 25, 2014 at 12:43pm

    Main course :- Shaun Wright Filloets or Bacari Lasagna .
    Deserts :- Juicy Jaskelienen or Sergio Biscuits.or even John Cherry.

    Whatever ban he gets won’t be enough. I have even heard that Uruguay are claiming that Chiellini got someone to bit him at half time , so that he could blame Suarez.

    Rico, Sports teams in general are run governing bodies who are corrupt and intimidated by monetary bribes, player agents are the most powerful persons in a player career, don’t be surprised LS only get ban for the rest of the tournament. The only reason FIFA acts this quickly is because the Italian player call them out when he said they would never ban 1 of the best player in the world or words to that effect.

    LS07 might purposefully bite the player to get on Liverpool nerves so he could get his dream move to Barcelona, his agent is a Barcelona fan. He intentionally slams the English media after he knock England out of the WC, he won’t be in the EPL next season.

    DNA, I disagree, as I think they will give him a decent ban, but saying that, I will not be surprised if you are right, and that will cause worldwide condemnation, especially from non footballing fans.

  130. tsgh

    June 25, 2014 at 1:49pm

    Fingers crossed Rico…

    Sanchez was really prepared to join us last summer… our lack of transfer strategy made us follow LS07 when Pep who is a sibling of Pere had said publicly LS07 was not looking to move…

    Those who claim LS07 can’t control himself like Wright imho are just naive…

    Last summer when LS07 got an improved contract (with clauses related to his discipline) I said on here LS07 will not cause anymore troubles.
    He wants a move now so he has started the same..

    AS I always say history repeats itself… last summer in the Confed Cup LS07 started false comments about the English media being after him etc…

    To me how like in normal walks of life how guilty and indivual is can be weighed by his immediate reaction. Also the punishment/pardon one gets after an offence can be heavily influenced by what that individual does after he/she realises he/has committed that error or offence…

    LS07 knew what he was doing and then tried to con the watching world by pretending he had been elbowed by Chellini…

    Nickie, no offence taken mate… the player and Tata both said it last summer during the Suarez saga…

    Even the great Cruyff weighed-in on the player looking to join an EPl club.

    And we know we are the only 1′s from the EPL Barca turned down in August as Man city had bought Jovetic and Negredo who we also had a bid accepted for…

    Jose was never going for a fine player as him…

    Yanited had Rvp and were only on the market for a creative CM.

    The dippers had attempted to buy Costa and had already gootten Iagas..

    What allegedly transpired was that when Neymar was bought Alexis suspected the writing was on the wall as he had had a relatively poor season under Tito and Pep the previous seasons and was concerned he would even get less games…

    (My own view)It seems like we enguired for the player and Barca told us to wait until a new manager has been hired first…

    But the South American manager Tata promised him he would get chances and ‘S’ when on to have his best season since leaving River Plate.

    Before he joined Barca just like before Ozil joined RM, we were in for both but both apparently went for the big club cough money. ;)
    For what was in the media then…

    Liverpool could build a case to sue Luis Suarez for breach of contract if he is banned for biting, according to a leading employment lawyer.
    The striker is at the centre of yet more controversy after appearing to sink his teeth into Giorgio Chiellini during Uruguay’s World Cup clash against Italy in Brazil yesterday.
    World governing body FIFA is now investigating the matter and the 27-year-old could face a lengthy ban that could be extended to club football.
    Suarez has twice been banned for biting opponents in the past.
    Last year he was banned for 10 matches for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic while he incurred a seven-game suspension for a similar offence while at Ajax in 2010.
    Glenn Hayes, employment law partner at national law firm Irwin Mitchell, said: “The general position is that Suarez’s behaviour in the work environment would usually represent gross misconduct (given that it could be classified as an assault) and would usually result in the dismissal of an employee in most circumstances.
    “If the matter has occurred outside of work and is not connected to it, for example in the form of a work social, the issue for the employer would usually be whether the actions of the employee had brought the business into disrepute.
    “In the case of Suarez this could easily be argued – particularly as it is the second time an incident like this has happened whilst he has been with the club (and third time overall), and the Anfield club stood by the player last time despite risk to their reputation and despite his lengthy ban.
    “The decision for Liverpool however is not really about whether they do what a ‘normal employer’ may do.
    “With Barcelona and Real Madrid apparently planning to make significant bids for the player after the World Cup, the decision is whether they are willing to dismiss a player and waive a potential huge transfer fee.
    “Much will depend on what punishment FIFA hands down but if the ban is sufficiently long so that Suarez is unable to fulfil his contract, this so-called ‘frustration of contract’ could lead to claims by Liverpool for breach of contract on the part of Suarez.”
    The latest Suarez incident in the group match in Natal came amid growing speculation linking the PFA player of the year with a big-money move to Barcelona.
    European champions Real Madrid have previously been linked with the player.
    It remains to be seen whether such apparent interest is now tempered.
    Liverpool have declined to comment on the matter. It is understood the club intend to let FIFA’s process take its course before making their position clear.
    Yet with Suarez having also been involved in numerous other controversies since joining Liverpool in 2011 – most infamously a race row with Manchester United’s Patrice Evra that led to an eight-match ban – there is the potential for embarrassment for the Reds.
    Hayes said: “It will be interesting to see how the situation develops over the next few days and what stance Liverpool take in relation to their highest-profile and most-valued employee.”

    Uruguay have until 5pm on Wednesday, Brazil time, to submit a defence for Suarez and they plan to say that there was no bite to defend. Spanish newspaper AS claim the Uruguayan football authorities will say that what’s happened is a conspiracy aided by Photoshop and a general dislike of Suarez.

    The Liverpool player will not be asked by Uruguay to speak at his own hearing but instead he will be represented by Alejandro Balbi of the Uruguayan FA. He’s quoted by Ovacion as saying “Suarez did nothing wrong and we will show that.”

    Balbi, who has legally represented Suarez before, had said earlier “Italians are making too much noise, disappoint me, are not like those world champions.”

    It’s a sentiment backed up many within Uruguayan football. The country’s captain Diego Lugano has said “The scars? They are old scars, if you weren’t stupid you would be aware. Chiellini did it on purpose.

    “Worst thing is attitude of Chiellini, not normal in Italian football that a player leaves the pitch crying and accusing a rival.”

    OMG

    Phil Thompson on Irish radio, claims “S” to the dippers is a done deal.

  190. Nickie

    June 25, 2014 at 3:49pm

    I’m sorry but how can they defend that? Chiellini is a big lad and he looked hurt by Suarez biting his shoulder. He went down immediately and you could see the fire and passion in his eyes as he approached the ref to show him the marks. Ok, some pictures probably have been photoshopped etc BUT there is video footage of the slimeball clamping his jaw. How is someone going to play out or fake being bitten? lol He has a past littered with these sorts of incidents, I wouldn’t even tarnish my own reputation to defend him

  191. Nickie

    June 25, 2014 at 3:51pm

    I’d be very depressed if Liverpool managed to sign “S”

    It crossed my mind yesterday listening all the so called ex-pros pundits/experts after the 3 lions game that none of them volunteer to help the young lads improve on their technique. since they all claim to want to see England do well in a tournament…

    A 90-year-old woman was dragged off the street and raped as she walked to her local butcher’s shop.
    The pensioner was attacked in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, at 6.45am on Tuesday.
    She felt a hand go over her mouth and was hauled backwards in Spotland Road, police said.

    Lightly????

    by castration I mean removing their testicles. This would result in a lowering of testosterone thus resulting in higher oestrogen levels. This would turn them into man with female voices, less body hair and chests turning into boobs.

    Is that a light sentence having to live with that for the rest of their miserable lives?

    no amount of viagra would allow them to have intercourse anymore

  258. tsgh

    June 25, 2014 at 6:41pm

    My point is that those who claim winning a trophy will make the club money is not adequately substantiated..

    Moreover, Stan is about his investment and so the club not over speculating makes him more successful imo… that is why AW is his biggest asset in his franchise.

  278. Nickie

    June 25, 2014 at 8:00pm

    he looks very edgy doesn’t he? which is worrying. But he did say Balotelli was not convincing this world cup, so if he does pay money based on these performances then what is he thinking?

  279. tsgh

    June 25, 2014 at 8:04pm

    Nickie, it is very unlikely for Aw to downplay or even comment an an individual player especially if that player is not playing for AFC..

    AW normally does that to deter interest from 3rd parties or reduce the price or send a coded message to the players agent…

    Afternoon guys…..what’s new?? Sanchez to poopville is a done deal according to reports. If that actually turns out to be true then you really must ask what they are smoking at the camp nou. Letting him leave and getting Suarez in his place. Beggars belief.

  326. tsgh

    I am with you kev.. I think Pogba is atad over rated… he had a very good first season with Juve but he has been average since…

    Just young though so..

    Nickie no idea mate re colours will find out for you if I can…

  327. allezkev

    Only three goals as well, just not good enough…

  328. rico

    June 25, 2014 at 9:28pm

    Not at all Kev, I can’t really give a view on him as I’ve hardly seen him play, just tonight he looks as if he’s struggling a bit…

    Kev-The french like us AFC fans have been looking for another PV04 for so long any Franco African is dubbed the new Vieira.

    He is nowhere as good as our only Diabolic Abou imo…

    For Juve he plays with Vidal and Pirlo in the midfield 3 or he is bound to look good imo…

  337. allezkev

    June 25, 2014 at 9:35pm

    Rico, I like Griezmann’s close control, very neat and economical, and 20 goals from a winger is Piresesque..,

  338. rico

    June 25, 2014 at 9:36pm

    Fowler is right though. And what he got up to didn’t harm anyone but himself, what Suarez has done is quite different…. imo

  339. tsgh

    June 25, 2014 at 9:37pm

    There I say the French are missing OG12…?

    Their midfield without Cabaye is not as creative… even though Morgan is not too bad.

  340. allezkev

    June 25, 2014 at 9:37pm

    Ginge imo, Vidal is head and shoulders above Pogba…

    Schneiderlin is very very good, his passing is excellent…

  341. rico

    June 25, 2014 at 9:37pm

    Exactly why I wont judge him Kev….. One bad game doesn’t make a bad player…

    Just ask Olivier Giroud… ;)

    of course Rico… you are spot on but still a pot calling a ketle black imo..

    I can’t stand Fowler, but I think both incidents are different, but yes, both let their club down big time, but imho, Suarez is worse because its biting another player.

    Decent people just don’t do that…

    Jackson Martinez and Muller have been good me think..

    Higuain has been the worst imo followed by Aguero.

    June 25, 2014 at 9:57pm

    What an utter load of rubbish! “…but look what problems [Suarez would] be causing us now”. What problems? His value having risen at least 10%, because whichever club he plays for knows he won’t be disappearing off/getting injured on international duty for the next 2 years?

  370. Nickie

    June 25, 2014 at 10:06pm

    I think for persistent offences he should be banned from international football for maximum and banned domestically for 6-12months

    James 9.57, just my opinion, but I think the sponsers of any interested club would have a massive say in any transfer, their name is plastered all over the shirt, would they really want to be associated with such an animal, I think not !

  377. agirlagunner

    June 25, 2014 at 10:22pm

    This is a bit Snoozy. I like Griezmann but he is so small, I’m not sure how he would fare against thuggish types in the prem.

    In the WC, I have been really impressed with Vidal. I think Valbuena has been fantastic too, as well as Cabaye.

    Bacary Sagna insists his decision to join Manchester City was not financially motivated.

    The French defender has penned a lucrative three-year contract with the Premier League champions after rejecting a new deal at Arsenal.

    Sagna’s move has led to criticism in some quarters, but the 31-year-old insists he simply wanted a fresh start to “boost” his career after seven years with the Gunners.

    “I’m going to clear everything up because I keep reading that I did it for money and I’m greedy,” Sagna said after France’s 0-0 draw with Ecuador in Rio de Janeiro.

    “What I want to say is I stayed with Arsenal with the same contract since 2008 and I never asked for more money.

    “For people who think it’s for money, it’s not. I just wanted to change. I needed a boost in my career and I think it was about time.”

    Sagna’s contract negotiations with Arsenal dragged on throughout the second half of last season, and he admits they were an unwelcome distraction.

    “It was not an easy time because we were still involved in the FA Cup and it was hard to stay focused,” he added.

    “I stayed focused on my team because I have a lot of respect for Arsenal. I believe Arsenal is a great team. I believe we have great quality and we won a trophy finally. It’s not even about that because Arsenal have a quality.

    “It’s just that, personally, I wanted a boost. I needed to start from the bottom again.

    “It is an exciting time for my career because I’m 31,” Sagna added. “I know they have a very good right-back in [Pablo] Zabaleta and I will have to fight to find some time on the pitch but I think we have a good team with City and we can do great.”

  422. tsgh

    June 26, 2014 at 9:18am

    Lol… I love the intelligent of footballers…

    Its not about money but he is letting us know he has been on the same salary since 2008?

    Apart from that, I hold no grudge against BS at all. He was an excellent professional who gave us no troubles, and always gave 100%. its a shame our club choose not to value certain type of players…

    It must be disheartening when folks like JW earn more than him when they have achieved F all…
    I wish him all the best nonetheless…

    The Sagna salary situation shows you that Arsenal’s salary scale/model is shit! Useless wastes of internal organs (diaby,gerwankstain, bendtner,santos) all earning the same sort of dough as Sagna, is a joke!!!

    Leave Sagna alone. He want’s a new challenge, a start from the bottom and all he wants is 150k a week to do this.

    I agree, Lee.
    I just wish these players wouldn’t say they’re leaving for trophies.
