Arsene knows?

Premier League Arsenal
comment on the article

Why does everyone think we would either get good money for hleb to barca or a great swap ,
some crazy people even expect yaya plus cash 4 hleb.
please tell when have we ever done a great deal like this,last i heard was 4 nic
look how much barca wanted henry
ask yourself ,
less or more than hleb
no swap there,and only d bent money changed hands
please tell me what are the glaring differences in this deal..
they may not, but i think euro teams always think they have upper hand vs us.ps apparantly 16 mill for th14 and he was on 200000 a week

You clearly dont have a very good grasp of the language, read my posts properly i dont think spurs are a bigger or better club than arsenal at the moment, but we are getting competitive and our wins against arsenal and chelsea along with a unlucky result against man u in all comps shows that. I am stating that arsenal seem to be going backwards, we have won something albeit not a major cup we still beat quality sides to get their, My point is why is your club selling or letting leave some of your best players, nobody answers the question you all get defensive and start slating spurs, all im doing is stating facts and a 5-1 against u boys cant be from a team that arent getting close to you level. Hleb is a quality player and i think he is harder to replace than addebayor who is quality but there are plenty of finishers in the game, besides RVP i reckon is better. End of last season shows that you need more quality , especially in midfield and letting three first teamers possibly leave and not replace them with similar players i dont reckon is going to win you the title

Ok calm down, a lot of what you says makes sense - but I think you put it in a wrong way.

firstly a lot of Arsenal fans don't consider Hleb that good, he rarely scores and doesn't get many assists. A first team starter certainly but easily replaceable.

I also think this idea that we are going backwards is misguided. We finished 15 points better off last season than the season before and were only 4 points off the title.

When you consider how good ManU are at the moment, doesn't sound like such a crisis to me.

Nasri for Hleb looks a straight replacement and I still think Wenger will pull out a couple of signings.

We'll see how the next season goes.

I would say Yaya+ 5M for Hleb.We need a strong Holding MF.

If Hleb wants to go let him go there is no point in keeping an unhappy player.We have replacement for him in Nasri anyways.

i hope we sell him for well over 15 million, otherwise we won't make much profit over a very good player.

Not sure about Hleb - if Arsenal are made a decent offer or even but get Toure in exchange + cash - fine. Occasionally, Hleb has impressed this season but most of the time he runs around like a headless chicken going nowhere - and of course he is reluctant to shoot and when he does .... not his greatest skill - so basically no great loss.

I personally don't think Hleb will go despite all these rumuors.He said in these last few months he likes it at arsenal and its also likely that Arsenal will tell barca and inter he's not for sale.

I also think that Arsenal should sell Rosicky and get Nasri in instead. Basically cos Rosicky is always injured.

I agree pretty much with this comment as football has to be about entertainment...having got that out of the way it is also about winning things and Arsenal will do that this season

To be honest i think arsenal fans are some of the worst fans in football......
Take Thierry Henry for example......
Before he was at Arsenal it was - "we are much better without Henry."
Then after he came it was "We are fantastic with Henry."
Then when he left it was "Its fine - we are better without him."

SORT YOURSELVES OUT!!!!!!

I agree... he has good skills, but I have no issue in him leaving. Guys remember he did a big mistake the season before in champions leage against PSV, made unneeded tacke, gave a free kick from which PSV scored and we were out.. I always remember this.. let him go, Nasri will be more exciting to watch pairing him with Wallcotty ! look forward to it !
