Why are we STILL waiting for Wenger to sign a defensive midfielder?

Ours for £12m Miguel Veloso

Ours for £12m "Miguel Veloso"

I cant understand why Wenger is STILL yet to sign a defensive midfielder?

Having ALLOWED Flamini, Diarra and Gilberto to leave last summer Wenger like a mug failed to replace them and went against many fans and football pundits advice.

NO Wenger playing Nasri as a defensive player is not going to work. And Denilson and Cesc cant play next to each other in a 4-4-2…Maybe this is why you keep playing that 4-5-1 bollocks.

It was clear to all that we badly missed a ball winner last summer.

Poor Cesc suffered the most.

Next to Flamini the gifted Cesc could express himself and get forward and score goals. Last season Cesc was just limp without a ball winner next to him. Somebody who can just win the ball and give it to him and say “there you go son, Take the ball and work your magic”…It was clear to people that know something about the game that this was the reason WHY Arsenal finished more then 20pts behind the champions Man Utd.

I was convinced that Wenger would address his mistake this summer and sign a defensive hard nut.


Having made a half hearted attempt to sign Melo by offering Eboue in part exchange Wenger confirmed on Wednesday night that “we are not close to signing anybody at the moment”

Wenger then went on and insulted the fans again but giving us all that bollocks about how Rosicky and Eduardo are back and are like 2 new signings. What a load of shit that is…So Mr Wenger, When Nasri come back from his broken leg, Will he be like a new signing : /

This is just crazy..

He had ALL of last season and ALL of this summer to address this problem and STILL we wait.

WHY are still waiting for this key area to be covered? Surly he should of signed this player a long time ago and given him a chance to play with us in friendly’s before the season starts.

We missed out on Melo for the same reason we missed out on alonso & inler last season. Wenger didn’t want to pay the going rate.

It looks like its going to be the same shit this summer.

Well you know what that means…fuck off for us again and another depressing season for the fans…

But as long as we make a profit wenger is happy..RIGHT

    Like someone said before. As unoriginal as it sounds, go support Man City.

    Half of these managers of smaller teams earn their pay by signing players whom Arsenal consider and then reject. Just as you highlighted in the Palacios case. At the time we didn’t need him so there is no point in moaning about him now (and its not like he’s Essien reincarnate either).

    Going by your logic with Palacios, then all the Barca fans must be screaming for the heads of their former manager for letting Cesc go.

    From Arsenal.com a few days ago

    Wenger – We’re keeping an eye on Chamakh


    Look what the guy has just been quoted saying

    “I didn’t mind waiting, but as far as Arsenal are concerned, it has taken too long, unlike Sunderland.

    “I could have waited, but Bordeaux wanted this response quickly, so I could not do it any other way.”

    all season we had this idiots going on about arsenal can sign £30mil players if wenger wanted,who a load of arse liquid they were on about,do you hear them idiots talking since the window openned?

    Wenger’s ‘project’ is flawed. Sign young player, mould them to fit into a title winning team, then ooopss, another one’s left.

    Wenger has brought unprecedented success to the club and you’re moaning like a spoilt baby.

    Yes, we have to service a debt, but the incomings from Emirates mean that we still have MORE money even after paying off the debt than we would have had had we stayed at Highbury.

    A midfielder would be good but he has to be better than what we’ve got. Denislon, Song, Diaby, Ramsey.

    Wenger has faith in the players already at the club. We should have faith in Wenger.

    You’re going to look a right mug when we win the League this year. I’m looking forward to reading your posts then.

    How can anyone say he doesnt care about Arsenal? Honestly we support probably the most ethical club in the premier league and yet we constantly suffer bad media, repugnant player attitudes, and poaching of the highest order from europes ‘elite’ and now shit like this from our own fans!! Listen man i understand your frustration, i feel it too but remember what this club is trying to do in the face of great adversity. We are attempting to be self sufficient, we attempt to shun the craziness of the transfer market with a manager who simply realises that to buy ridiculously overpriced players in our situation is just impractical. Just think.. overall club debt of what – £300mil, ade goes for £25mil, now that’s a nice wedge off the debt eh? Just think in three years of profit from ‘hopefully’ some silverware and club turnover we could be the only top four side with no debts hanging over us. When that day comes and we are riding the crest of a wave with the best team in the world and the freedom to buy whoever we see fit, wont you be happy that we endured this frustration to finally get to that stage? Every summer even our own fans seem to forget what we have, a team that consists of some of the best young talent in the world, and some fantastic ‘senior’ players ie eduardo, rosicky, arshavin, gallas… Not to mention we play the best football in the world on our day. For god sake people get behind your team and give them the belief they need, they are bloody humans after all. Wenger IS Arsenal, he shows ultimate faith in his players and is a true gentleman in a world of greed and superstar ego’s, when he came to us we were no better than bloody villa, now we are feared across europe as a sleek, well oiled machine capable of embarrassing the best europe has to offer.. This is arsenals new breed. REMEMBER AND NEVER DEVIATE. COME ON THE GUNNERS!!!

    July 23, 2009 at 8:26 pm


    Every team loses, and sometimes teams lose to teams they shouldn’t, but that is the beauty of football. Manchester Utd were embarassed last season, Real Madrid were embarassed last season. It happens to all the big clubs. Name me a club that won every single game they should have.

    On paper, as Champions League semi-finalists we should beat everyone outside the top 4 and Barcelona, will it happen week in, week out…..no course not.

    Wenger’s policy, like Ferguson’s and most other managers is if a player is unhappy or wants out we let him go. Yes several players have wanted out because Arsenal not being able to offer as a high wages as other teams, but thats why the stadium was necessary to help us generate the income LONG term to compete.

    As for Chamakh, if his best offer is from Sunderland, he clearly wasnt the finished article the Pescimists* wanted. So, its no big loss not to get him.

    I’m getting sick of some Arsenal fans. We have three alternatives.
    1. Become some bilionaires plaything – No thanks.
    2. Spend loads of money we dont have – go bust – become some billionaires bitch.
    3. Let Wenger get on with things, build a solid stable club, gradually get more spare cash and eventually be able to compete on the basis of what the club has built not the whim of someone who didnt know football existed 10 years ago.
    I dont mind going through a few leen years as long as we come out of it with a properly run club. Liverpool and Manu may have won more than us but Arsenal are the only club that have won the Englsh title in every decade since the war. I would like us to be able to continue that.
    When we do win the title next time it will meen so much more than all the trophies Chelsea have won and Man City may win.

    Arsene Wenger’s blatent over stubborness and ignorance is pathetic. I thought after we got spanked by Man Utd at the Emirates in the Champions League Semi’s (Which i attended) that Finally, just finally the greatand honest man Arsene Wenger would admit his flaws (which he did) and then correct them in the summer as we all expected. He has done 10% of the job by admitting he should have more players but the 90% which is the important bit he has failed to do yet again. Proving to me that he is not a man of his word and is also a bad tactician. How Wenger think with all honesty that Denilson can compete with Midfield Warlords like Essien, Gerrard and Scholes is leaving me baffled. I don’t want him to go out and do a Chelsea and buy whoever looks nice, but 2 players of high standard would set this team up for success next season. We’ve already lost out on 1 (Melo) so count him out…

    Wenger, wake up and smell the coffee you prat. Your over patience and stubborness is the most annoying thing since the cheeky girls came to British TV.

We should trust wenger coz of players like fabregas and van persie and even wilshire who he aquired young and turned into potential world class talent

  23. Amz

    July 23, 2009 at 8:44 pm

    Damn finaaaally some gooner woke up!i mean its only wenger and few other fans who fall for his words will believe that no DM is required.got 1 good question regarding our SO COLD TOP DM’z ok.
    what team would SONG&DIABY play for if arsenal were 2 sell them????not a top 10 team in a milllllllllllllllion years right??well that’s a FACT and that just shows you WE MUST GET a DM,and others say Deno,well i think the lad is much better than the other 2,BUT hes not a DM in the first place is he???and it dosnt look like he will suceed there,i would love 2 loan him out coz in 2 years he will be the REAL DEAL(nt now tho).i honestly think there’s a room for 4-5 players min 2 leave(some on loan tho)so others would come in and make us STONGER for the whole season u know.
    my choices are very simple:Hangleand/Flamini/Senna/Hleb/Reyes……..some £30m-£40m should do the job i reacon,i mean at least the 1st 2 for now would be ORITE.
    OUT:Diaby/silvy/sendo/traore….all sell(about £10-£15m right)
    loan:ramsey&Deno(they will be arsenal MD for loooong time 2 come)
    so guys give me a good reason why NO1 would want old gooners back in place of the 1’s now????can see any footballing reason coz they wouldnt have been starters on our BEST TEAMS in the past would they???
    sorry 4 th long essay just had 2 let it out guyz :)….GoOnErZ4LiFe!!!

    would be nice to see us go in for Senna, but extremely unlikley.

    does he want to move in a world cup year and risk his starting spot in spain’s midfield in a world cup year?

    he just turned 33, what sort of contract would Wenger be willing to offer (2 years? unlikely?)

    given that the player is extrememly loyal and Villareal don’t need to sell what sort of transfer would they demand?

    so Senna is more or less and impossibility.

    as for Veloso, he is an over-rated show pony who fancies himself as a male model and clothing designer. how about he gets back into the Portugal squad before a club spends money on him.

    Cana doesn’t have the speed, quickness or technique necessary to really push us on, but he would bring a fighting spirit and pride to the squad, but it’s hard to see Wenger signing him, let alone playing him ahead of Denilson, Song or Diaby.

    Would like to see us make a substantial bid for Momo Sissoko at Juve, he has come on leaps and bounds since leaving Liverpool. Real bite, energy, drive and size. They might listen to a good offer given all the money they’ve spent this summer. Unlikely as their supporters love him and they want him to form a rock solid partnership with the more attacking Felipe Melo.

    Matuidi may be the most likely, he isn’t big, but he likes a tackles and has an energy, quickness and running ability that Denilson, Song and Diaby simply don’t have. Left-footed is also a plus…

  25. Clockpocalypse

    July 23, 2009 at 8:57 pm

    there is also NO real indication that Wenger has been given the funds from Adebayor’s sale to spend. of course, he says he is able to, but we’ve heard that refrain for 4-5 years, but one way on another the net transfer budget always works out close to ZERO.

    it’s time that Fiszman and Hill-Wood step aside…

    let’s hear what Kroenke has to say…?

    Cesc did not perform last year, let’s not forget that! ok he was exposed because we did not have a defensive midfield but he was miles away from his best. Kolo was half the player he was 2 years ago. Walcott was somehow disappearing in some games. Adebayor well not scoring enough etc etc……

    Yes we need a defensive midfield but more importantly we need these “big names” to start performing to theor best level then we’ll stand a chance!

  29. Jackthegunner

    July 23, 2009 at 9:07 pm

    Please Arsene start buying players!! We have sold Ade but I feel that we do have a lot of excellent taking options. However Huntelaar would be an amazing addition for a good price. (Only about 15m) Imagine him up front with RVP. I like the thought of this.

    Secondly for fucks sake buy a fucking def mid. I mean seriously!!! We really really need someone like Viera. If i was the manager of arsenal i would:

    Buy Huntelaar for a good price of Real because we all know how desperate they are to sell.
    Make sure Toure doesnt leave.
    Sell Senderos and buy Hangeland.
    Don’t buy Chamach cause he is SHIT! All you have to do is look on Youtube to see what people think of him.
    Buy the def mid – Cana, Inler, Melo…….buy bloody Francis from down the road…just buy someone!!

    Oh and why do we have to always buy players from the French league? Its not like the French league is in top 3 in world.

    Sorry for the rant. Just Arsene winds me up like an X gf.

    July 23, 2009 at 9:08 pm

    last year we made 2 semis…The team we have this year, IMO is better then last years,

    man u’s team = worse
    chelsea, always strong, but they have 2 proven strikers, one of them gets injured, there screwed… we got shavin, dudu, persie, nasri, bendtner, walcott, vela who can all bang in goals.
    liverpool – close too loosing alonso, mascerano… AND if gerrard, OR torres miss a game, pool loose.
    city- 8 strikers? good luck with that, defense ? – wank.

    because city and real madrid are spending big, we should follow suit? fcuk off

    wenger started a project, and hes going too finish it.

    July 23, 2009 at 9:10 pm

    I would dearly love Toulalan in the team also, but you are deluded if you think that Lyon, the club that just sold their best player, would then go and sell their 2nd best player, who is also their captain, for £10m. Also like to point out he’s the French first choice defensive midfielder, so no, £10m!!! More like £20m.

    The two that I now have to disagree with are Huntelaar and Hangeland. Huntelaar, whilst a very good goal scorer, is lazy to the extreme, a Lineker-esque striker. Has a undoubted ability to score but put’s in next to no effort, which in the Premiership is essential. I don’t think we need to sell one lazy striker for an even lazier one.

    And onto Hangeland, I still don’t get this obsession with people rating him so highly. He’s slow as shite, which is ok for Fulham who defend their 18 yard line, but Arsenal defend farther up the pitch, sometimes with our backline on the halfway line… you think with a ball down the channel that Hangeland with catch up with Drogba, Torres, Bellamy, Robinho, Adebayor and any other striker who can run. Yes, he may help in the air, but it is not worth it if it is to the detriment of other areas of our defensive game.

    I want you to understand one thing, if we allow this so called Wenger to do what ever he likes in this club, men arsenal we be relegated, i promise u, this is the man that doesn’t know what he is doing anymore, he has lost it, i mean it. Listen to him when talking his just like moron. I think he should go, because next season all our star will go for the probs. Do you guys thing we can win any war with the troops this fool is preparing for battle? i doubt it.

    He is a cambler, instead of those scums to hit the nail on the head to save our club from one man idea, they were saying jargons. Let see his magic next season, the season would soon start. He want to keep the money so that they can share it. Less i forget, one fools said they are paying for our debts, imbecile that is what you are, is it only arsenal that is paying debit, what about Man U? You people that are supporting him i want to say, all of you including Wenger are IMBROGLIOS, that means all of you are confused and in complicated situation. All we are saying, please Wenger don’t relegate us, because he is driving us toward that way now.

    we are fine…we don’t need any more signings…save the cash for January and fill any holes we have from injuries…we can survive fine without Nasri for 6 weeks…You watch…Diaby will be in the holding role this year and should do very well. Remember that Cesc did not look cesc like last season because he was tired after the Euros and he was injured…not because Flamini was not there…we falied last year becasue no one could hit the back of the net. Denilson is developing,
    coquelin is developing and Diaby is working on his agressiveness to fill the holding role…we will be fine and likely will be 1st or 2nd in the league this year as well as CL finalists…FA cup is ours too…Our strike force is immense and if Nikki B can step up in the place of Adebayor (he just needs a run of games to get confidence) we could have 3 20+ goal scorers this season (Bendtner or Eduardo, v. Persie, Arshavin). Eduardo is not injury prone, he is lucky to be able to play after that horrific injury…

    point 1= wenger offered palacios to bruce and said here is a player who could be good for you , and on wengers jugement bruce signed the player !

    point 2 = when we were whipped by the mancs last season cl our oldest midfielder was 22. a full strength team this season rosicky 28 , arshavin 28 , cesc dont matter how old the boy is he has class ! now there is the experience that uve been calling for !

    point 3 = some of the best players in the word trust the jugement of mr wenger , i take it you know alot more than henry , pires , arshavin , gerrard the list goes on i could even include ferguson the mancs manager , i take it you know more about football than the above list !

    point 4 = look at the over inflated prices in the market 15 mil turned down for lescott , did we not sign arshavin at this price ?? why would u want to mug yourself off just because u can !

    point 5= did u see the rise of flamini into a quality midfielder coming ? cos lets face it before his 1 decent season in that position he showed little of the promise he achieved, who is to say one of the others wont step up !

    point 6= you bang on about being a farm for youth , our starting 11 is anyting but clichy , cesc , and 1 of denilson , diaby or song are the only players under 25 so thats just 3 out of a starting 11 yes a true youth farm .

    point 8= and using our “youth farm ” to nurture some of the best talent from across the world making millions in profit when sold , and when not sold turn into legends that are henry , kolo , vieira , and this is a bad thing why ?????

    point 9= if cana goes to sunderland does this not underline that he is not in the arsenal class needed , the same goes for the other bloke thinking of going there if they were that good the would NOT be moving to sunderland !

    point 10= im finished !

    yea, we brought players up from being lil kids…

    lets get real here, these kids got us 4th place and 2 semi finals…

    news for you – these kids will improve daily… the team molds together

    the team this year, is better then last… no Ade going offside on every chance
    dudu back, hes a quality finisher, that goal at burnley… yea it was burnley.. but that goal was one of the best i have ever seen!
    persie’s fitness 100% … rosiky back, you know hes the nuts.
    arshavin for champions league… jeezus, this guy scored 4 against the pool…. 4 fkin goals.

    Brian Clough was a great football manager, didn’t stop him getting Nottm Forest RELEGATED!! Manager’s fuck up, so they have to be questioned always. For all those defending Wenger and saying he has no money to spend, he already said that he DOES have the Adebayor money to spend. Why say it if it’s not true?? If he doesn’t spend it then he only has himself to blame. And stop saying stupid fucking things like, “well tell me who Wenger should buy!”. That’s Wenger job, he has the scouting system not me. If you’e seriously telling me there is no better defensive midfielder in world football than Denilson or Song you’re off your rocker. Nearly every club in the Premiership has a better defensive midfielder than them two. This is shit. Wenger, spend the money or piss off.

What you need to do is spend some time analysing the game and the whole league and learn a little bit more about what has happenned to the beautiful game. I have been a fan for years and I have watched alot of arsenal dross in the past and I am not interested in going back to that again. If you know your history you will find that they are only two proper trophies to be won, There are twenty teams in the country trying to win the premiership and numerous team trying to win the FA cup, over 50 clubs are trying to win the champions league gone are the days when we use to not even get through the first round of the champions league or have you already forgotten about those dark days when we use to loose games against the greek clubs. My friend get your facts together in order for you to get some real Kudos. I think you are actually Ashley Cole impersonating a blogger, honestly I think you should get yourself another gig because you suck at this. Do you honestly think other clubs are in better hands than where we are, you make me laugh ha ha ha ha. Other clubs have been improving for years and they have caught up the ideas that the top two had are no longer a secret we are now on the level playing field. These other clubs are waiting around just to lay down and be beaten by arsenal, if you think that you are a num nut and a noggin.

    Jayjinoh, you supprises me, Wenger had faith in the boys, so we should have faith in Wenger, when blind leads blind, what is going to be results, both of them will fall into pit. Let me tell you, Wenger is blind, he doesn’t know what his doing at all, so u people should stop that jaggons, we are tired of it right?

    I agree with Gavin about Lucas Bigli. Take a look at YouTube and read the comment by a guy called “wimski” from Belgium who has seen Bigli play many
    times. I think Bigli is a world class player in the making. He is not tall at 178 cm,
    but he is strong. I noticed that when he pulled off his T-shirt and you could see a pair of strong arms and a well developed upper body. Bigli has the perfect age at 23 as you are then physically fully developed. You can see Bigli is techically very good.
    It is very difficult to take the ball from him without creating a clear foul. His overview of the game is very good and so is passing too. He may not look like a very commanding player but he tackles very well, and his work rate is just as good as Flamini`s . In Bigli you have top Defensive and Playmaker rolled into one. If Bigli played for Arsenal, he should soon become as valuable as Fabregas.
    And Arshavin, my favourite Arsenal player, should love to play with Bigli. To me, Arshavin is by far the best player Arsenal have, and Arsenal need more world class players. With Bigli as a new DM, and new Central Defender capable of dominating the air etc., Arsenal should have solved their defensive problems.

    No need to buy the dmf all fans are clamouring. You just watch my boys deliver and I’l make all of you eat your words.
    AW seems to delight in going against conventional wisdom.
    However I believe he will be unlikely get away with another indifferent season. Relax,the season hasn’t started.
    Btw what makes all fans believe that adding new players will enable the gunners to challenge. What happens if we get a few more players and the gunners are still underperforming?
    Then what happens?It shd be quite intersting.

    The fact of the matter is this, yes we lack a defensive midfielder last season, but we all forget how shit Flamini was before his last season. Im sure Wenger would have offered him a contract sooner if he knew he’d have THAT kind of season. The truth is Flamini did very little until that year so who can blame Wenger for not offering a contract sooner. However, Song and Denilson could follow in a similar way, both have had average (neither good nor bad) seasons but all it is is experience and a little know how and, over last year they improved drastically from the start of the season. If Wenger doesn’t buy a defensive mid he clearly doesn’t think he needs one and I trust his judgement.

    Last season we got to 2 semis and 4th in the league (comfortably in the end). If you look at the improvement from the first 14 games (where we lost 5) to the unbeaten run (the longest since the invincibles era) to the last 25 games or so its remarkable how much we improved. Rosicky and Eduardo didn’t play at all last season (excluding Eduardo’s 4 appearences), so yes they are like new signings because it’s something we didn’t have last year. I’d rather have a team with the 2 of them than without, wouldn’t you??

    If we bring in more CMs Ramsey and Wilshere (as well as Coquelin) wouldn’t get a look in, and if you’ve watched them play they are very very good, maybe this is why no DM has come in. At the end of the day I dont know and you dont know, but Wenger knows more than we do, he sees the team play every day in training and so I believe he is just a little more qualified to judge.

    Time will tell, but trust in Wenger and SUPPORT your team.
