Of course they would sell him right after selling Snejider.. and that didn't even bring Paulinho back which was said to be the only reason they would be forced to sell Coutinho lol.

Anyway, will cheer for him, even if i think he would be better suited for Spanish football.

If AC can find the instruction manual they are going to have a force. They need a coach that can get him working; Mancini just gave up trying in the end.

Arsenal exclusive:

Players coming back from injury are like quality new signings. No superstar player that could be had at the 1 pound store could be found from Arsenals global scouting network.

Wait... Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Newcastle, QPR and others just heard you were available, so I'd hang tight if I were you cause someone will contact you shortly.

BTW, are you younger then 14... if not, sorry, Wenger likes them young and innocent.

Still not sure why people are on Wegner's case...
I highly doubt the board has handed Wegner a blank check and he simply refuses to use it....

I'm a big Wenger fan actually.

It's just when high ranking people in the club say there 60 million pound war chest he has at his disposal. It's mildly frustrating when he doesn't use it when the team is outside the top 4.

Don't buy that "war chest" business...
It doesn't take much to realize that an Arsenal with David Villa is better than an Arsenal without David Villa.
There isn't a single manager in the world who isn't sitting comfortably at the top of their table who can spend but won't.
If it were down to Wegner not spending you wouldn't have seen Podolski, Cazorla or Giroud join the ranks this summer.
It HAS to be the board.

I think this season we see Arsenal pass the torch to Tottenham as the EPL's 4th team. With Holtby and Dembele driving their midfield forward, the strong defense, and the fantastic form of Bale, Defoe and Lennon up top, Tottenham are just going to keep getting better. Really love Dembele. He's the most Yaya like player in England and Toure's my favorite EPL star.

I do buy it.

But I also buy that Wenger has a stubborn streak in him where fees' and wages must be to his liking or he just doesn't do them.

Also perhaps signing certain players is an indirect way of saying some other signing haven't worked.

If you have money you spend it, if you don't you don't. Any analysis of Arsenal's transfer activity is as simple as that, nothing further needed.

I like the Coutinho signing but I keep thinking that we're in massive need of some experience.

imo he is better than Modric at his age and has a good attitude. If Dinamo Zagreb had a legit striker he would have had some assists in the CL. I don't know though if Inter will use him right away, unlike Modric who played 5 seasons in the Croatian league before moving to Tottenham, Kovacic only has like 30-40 games under his belt, its a lot to ask for an 18 year old to jump into the Inter first team

If Inter give him an opportunity I'm sure he will take it, he is that good in my opinion
