It's not about not being able to manage it, it's about the small risk of injury.

Benfica's stadium is the spit of the Emirates isn't it.

Had me totally confused for a second as I glanced at the game. Couldn't work out why they changed the sponsors and why Arsenal are playing in their away kit.

Looks like the Oxlade-Chamberlain deal is going to get done,

If this is the supposed 'good news' Arsene has been talking about then the Arsenal fans will be going mental

He is one stubborn bastard! Sold their first choice left back, have a load of utter shit at centre back and he's off lashing more money on teenage attackers when their season starts in a few days.

Assuming Cesc goes and they don't get any defensive players in before the start of the season, I'd be extremely surprised if they finish above us.

No, I think you'll have a good season, in terms of comparing it to last. I've got you down for forth at the least, us in fifth.

As it stands, I can see:

1. Utd
2. City (although I hope they fucking implode)
3. Chelsea (as above)
4. LFC
5. Spurs
6. Goons

Fair play to Arsene.....with this deal it is clear Wenger is going all out for a trophy this year.........

although I think the Arsenal fans were hoping for more than aiming for the Coca cola cup!!!

If it is surely it'll be including add ons / performance related payments- which much make up a large part of it

1700: FOOTBALL - Press Association Sport understands that Arsenal have agreed to pay £15m for Southampton winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Radio said it was around 12 and others saying 7 up front with add ons etc.

Arsenal confirm signing of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Southampton get £12m guaranteed, further £3m worth of add-ons

He must be a world beater in making when they paid that kind of money for him..

Cahill will be on his way for about 18-20m before the end of the window..........not sure he'll be the answer either, but it'll show some cop on

Should have added IMO............I just think Arsenal will be spending a bit more once the Cesc (or perhaps Nasri) situation is sorted out.
Cahill to them......Dann to us (late in August, for closer to what we're willing to pay)

Wouldn't be surprised to see them go for Mertesacker. He's been told they'll listen to offers for him and hes been quoted as saying England interests him. Think Arse were linked with him last year too

Thats right

decent defender, bit on the slow side though.......not that thats a disqualifier by any means, but the fact that it didn't happen last year following some ITK info means its up in the air, still would be cheaper than Cahill all the same.
And thats all Arsene's concerned with

Anyone else heard that Wenger is acting as a scout for PSG this season, and has so far put 75mill worth of talent their way ?

Thought that's what i heard on the radio a bit ago.

Doubt it'll make the Arsenal fans any happier if true.

Aside from it being dubious Wenger would want to do this, surely that would breach regulations? You'd hope it would anyway!

Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas on verge of Barcelona move

By Dan Roan
BBC sports news correspondent

Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas is close to signing for European champions Barcelona for a fee believed to be about £35m.

The transfer, one of the most protracted in Premier League history, is yet to be completed but Arsenal expect it to be done by the weekend.

According to a senior source at the club, all the funds generated by the sale will be reinvested in new players.

The Gunners have been linked with Scott Dann, Phil Jagielka and Gary Cahill.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger looks intent on strengthening his defence and reports have suggested centre-backs Dann of Birmingham, Everton's Jagielka and Cahill of Bolton could be targets.

Fabregas, 24, would be unable to feature for Barcelona in the Champions League if he plays a part in Arsenal's match with Udinese on Tuesday, motivating both clubs to complete a deal before that game.

The BBC understands a fee of £30m, plus over £5m of additional performance-related payments, is close to being reached for Fabregas.

It is believed that, if he is sold, the Spaniard will be due £4m in compensation - £1m for each year of his contract he did not complete - but may be prepared to forego that payment in order to facilitate a deal.

Negotiations have been conducted by Barcelona's Vice-President Josep Maria Bartomeu and is believed to be a final take-it-or-leave-it offer, leaving Arsenal having to sell one of the major assets or keep a player who has his heart set on a move.

The transfer fee is significantly less than the £40m that Arsenal had been holding out for and suggests that the Gunners felt they had no choice but to sell a player who wanted to leave.

Fabregas, who has 58 caps for Spain, joined Arsenal from the Catalan giants in 2003 and, since making his name in north London, has been persistently linked with a return to his boyhood club.

Wenger will now turn his attention to keeping Samir Nasri at the club, who has refused to sign a new deal at the Emirates amid speculation of interest from Manchester City.

If the Fabregas deal goes through as expected, he will become Barcelona's second major signing of the summer following their £23m purchase of Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez.
