When asked about Moroccan striker Marouane Chamakh

“He has been overpriced by Bordeaux””We can still make do with one or two players more “One could be in the defensive areas, and one in the attacking areas.”

Wenger on Senderos

“There is an interest from Everton, but he is still our player,”

“He has an opportunity to go because he only has one year left on his contract, so we will see what happens next week.”

    More exciting news to look forward to…

    it was so weird how wenger casually said “yes he is injured…it’s a minor setback”

    6 weeks is not minor, even for rosicky!!!!!!

    what is most concerning is that it looks like even if we do get two players, one doesn’t look like being the centre midfielder we desperately need.

    looks like another depressing season ahead. yipee

    the positive’s are that he has admitted he is looking at people, and he has afew that he is making his mind up about. Plenty of time left for real!

    rosicky is done, he clearly can’t be relied on anymore. anything we get out of him is a bonus, which is such a shame as he is such a wonderful player

    if there is no replacement i hope we don’t sell senderos, he is miles better than silvestre.

    I recall him saying the same things last season before the window. Didnt he say something like ” I will be up till midnight trying to get the right player”

    And then nothing : (

    Agree…I would rather keep Senderos and flog Silvestre

    why haven’t they made a decison on hangaland or another centre back, exactly what are we waiting for? IF he decides to go for hangaland he will be cup tied already. we need to buy players prior to aug 30. all very frustrating.

    no point selling silvestre (other than the temptation to ever play himf course) he has no sale value and we have money already for transfers. i would suspect he does some experaince and help in the dressing room etc. o

    Mate, I was told that “IF” Man City sign Lescott, Richards will be joining Arsenal.

    I would rather play Armand Traoré ahead of Silvestre

    by who? find that hard to believe and to be honest not sure he is what we need anyway. they should buy hangaland or upson.

    agreed, but i think traore will go on loan somewhere. clichy and gibbs will be tyhe left backs, there is nor room other than further forward on the left for traore and i don’t see wenger playing him there either.

    he has looked very good in pre season though.

    hasn’t it crossed anyone’s mind that wenger is waiting to see if we get through the CL qualifier before he spends any of the £40 million?

    FA Cup semi Finals Arsenal vs chelsea. Arsene said he was worried about chelseas power in mid field we might not be able to cope. he has also said on several occassions that the general height in the team needs to be looked at. Has he addresses any of these issues, a big capital NO so how he thinks we are stronger than last season after selling a few players is beyound me! but i suppose in arsene we trust so keep d faith.
