Yeah, that's what I saw. Would make Anzhi really dangerous with a Eto'o, Traore and Willian front line with Boussoufa, Smolov and Zhirokov also to throw in attack, and their grinding defensive style of play. That's the type of move that could win them the RPL, especially if Zenit hasn't gelled over the winter break.

They might lose Samba, QPR put in a bid for him as he has a release clause in his contract.

Middlesbrough agreed a fee with Swansea for Danny Graham, but I can't see why he'd go there.

- Tottenham has proposed a loan to Lyon for Lisandro, but Lyon wants a transfer or nothing. So right now they're negociating.
- Alou Diarra is loaned to Rennes without option to buy.
- St Etienne wants Bodmer from PSG.

Gibbs injury forces our hand somewhat, need to find something, at least short term today.

Wow. Haven't seen that anywhere, but it would be incredible to sign him, great replacement for an aging Evra.

What do you reckon, how probable is it?

Very probable Digne would be interested, but doubtful Lille lets him go except if ManU pays a HUGE price.
19 year old, probably the best LB prospect in the game. 12M€ ain't going to cut it.

Gaetan Bong's name seems to be floating around twitter at the moment.

Beckham headed to PSG? Very interesting move.

Can someone explain to me why Odemwingie would want to leave West Brom for QPR? I sometimes don't understand why players want to go to worse performing clubs. Is it purely wages?

Lazio defender Mobido Diakite says Liverpool is his first choice and it looks like he will leave the club in the summer. I know we were connected to him throughout the window. Also, looks like Ince won't get done.

If Wenger doesn't get us a ****ing left back before the window closes, he should be sacked right then and there... period. Gibbs is made out of glass and our best option after that is Andrei Santos, seriously?

And for those who were saying that our defense wasn't/isn't a issue, you aren't watching the same matches I am. Henderson beating 4 defenders by himself to put Liverpool up by 2? Mertesacker and Santos on the field at the same time?

This team just doesn't know who to cover when they don't have the ball and don't get me going on set pieces, please. We are the Washington Capitals of the EPL, meaning that we know how to generate offense but we don't have the slightess clue what to do when the opposition is coming our way.

If we are stuck with the same roster come saturday, I hope we nose dive so hard that we won't have a choice but to fire Wenger. We need a shakeup and there's no better way to shake things up then by bringing in someone else who has a different mindset.

We have the money, it was confirmed by our board, wasn't it? If that's the case, wich I think is, it's Wenger own stuborness that's putting us behind the 8 ball here and no one else. I just don't see why the board would say publicly that we have 60M to work with if it isn't true. That would be throwing Wenger under the bus and just add more fuel to the fire that is a angry fan base who's desperatly waiting for reinforcements to arrive.

We all know that we're not getting anyone who's remotly close to the players you've listed but there has to be some kind of "in between" when talking about Lahm and Santos.

Getting a better player then Santos isn't all that difficult to do and find. He has to be one of the worst defenders out of everyone in the EPL.

I feel like part of the problem is that we are totally and completely unprepared for this day. Apparently Wenger made some quip yesterday that he needs the transfer deadline extended a week to do business.

I do think now that Gibbs is hurt, they for sure are working on a defensive player to add today but now it seems totally rushed and out of the blue...as if any casual observer couldn't have identified this teams weaknesses and lack of depedendable defensive depth MONTHS ago.

Deluded if you think you'd get any of them.

Should be looking for players that are out of favour somewhere but talented, like Michel Bastos was at Lyon.

I doubt Arsenal to sign anyone though.

You do know that we Gunners fans are kidding with these wishlists right? I think #1 on everyone's list would be some ambition removal of the Arsene knows best mentality at the club!

And that's why he should be let go. He's done wonders for this team over the years but the little light bulb in his head is blinking and it's two seconds away from being completely shut off.

We have no depth whatsoever on our backline, especially the left back position. What's Gibbs's record when it comes to consecutive games played before going down with a severe injury... like 10 or something? Who do we have that can step in if one of our CB's goes down, rugby tackling Koscielny and Squillaci?

This idiot can't even see on his own that we're a complete trainwreck on defense and has the balls to say that there's nothing better on the market then Andrei ****ing Santos?

If he's too busy coaching and doesn't have the time to analyse outside talent to bolster our squad, then give the job to someone who can cause when you come up with comments like "there's nothing out there that will make our club better" and you have Santos to cover for Gibbs... it's cleary a sign that you aren't doing your job properly.

Mbiwa, Sissoko. Total spent : 10M€.

Those 10M€ would have done wonders for Arsenal.
Or even better, Mbiwa+M'Vila, total 20M€.

I think this is what has me (as a relative newcomer to following football) so confused. If it's apparent to me that this team needed help defensively and in the midfield, how does Arsenal management, be it Wenger or whoever, not see this? And if they are supposedly such a big club, how can they not go out and spend a bit to help out here? Isn't 10 million Euros what they spent on Park just 2 seasons ago?

Maybe I'm missing something. Someone above suggested that Wenger should focus on coaching and give someone else the job of handling transfers. Is it common to have a coach/GM model like we see in most North American sports in European soccer? It didn't seem that way to my newbie eyes, but I'm all for being enlightened.
