Arsenal reached an agreement with Real Sociedad this month to pay Martin Zubimendi’s £52.5m release clause, but the player does not want to leave his hometown club in the middle of the season & the deal is more likely to happen at the end of the campaign. [Mail] #afc

Rice and Onana are genuinely good. Do I really need to explain why Rice is good?

Also Onana has potential to be as good as Partey if not better. He's a future elite 6. Either Onana or Danilo should be our future 6's

I'm telling you now if we don't sign a good midfielder this window we're going to end up seriously regretting it. It's sunshine and rainbows now with the team playing well and xhaka and partey at full fitness but the moment one of them gets a knock we'll see the performances drop hard and we'll look back at this like we do every season and end up regretting the golden opportunity we could have had to strengthen in an obviously weak position and then we'll all hate edu again. Rinse and repeat.

So Onana as the 6 and Zubimendi as the 8? Isn't Zubimendi supposed to be the next Biscuits for Spain? Might be cool having him in midfield with odegaard and onana with Zinchenko pivoting in to form a diamond on the attack. Seems like an Arteta type of starting XI. And arguably it might be possible to get both players for what Rice would cost.
>>
>>128679032
Just put in a cheeky bid to increase his value so other people have to overpay. Isn't really the right player for Arsenal and Arteta though
>>
>>128678866
Those watch centers out in the trenches of Africa look like fun ngl
>>
>>128679169
Probably. If Arsenal goes back to buy cheap player, they should buy Hakim Sahabo
>>
We're finally gonna win the champions league, feels surreal
>>
>>128679247
Why he's a 17 yo attacking midfielder and doesn't offer a long term replacement for Xhaka or Partey. Do you really see him being able to replace Odegaard? So it would be buying a prospect and likely loaning him out when they need depth for the CL next year.
>>
>>128679169
Zubimendi as 6, Rice as 8. I think Arteta wants his central midfielders as interchangeable as possible.
>>
>>128679296
that's like between 150-170m depending on how much Chelsea bid up Rice. Feels like you need to have a second option in case Rice's price gets into stupid range. I wouldn't be surprised if the eventual price for Rice is higher than what Grealish went for and is he really worth that?
>>
>>128678493
We should just blow some money on Tielemans and Onana
>>
>>128679342
Seems like Chelsea have cooled off on Rice ever since Tuchel left? They have been pushing hard for Enzo Fernandes and appear to want Caicedo as well. I don't think he's a top priority for them anymore, but that won't stop them from trying to drive up the price for us I guess
>>
>>128679032
He must be part of some money laundering scheme or something. I have no idea why there is so much interest in him
>>
>>128679382
it just seems like chelsea are going to get into a bidding war on any player that they think might significantly assist a top 6 side but assuming he won't leave the EPL who's going to pay what West Ham will ask? United have Casemiro who is getting older so does need a replacement but they are looking for a buyer and they have more significant needs in other positions. Liverpool? yes fabinho is getting older but they also have more significant needs in other positions. Spurs since Dier's contract expires in 2024?

Realistically it feels like 2 likely places for Rice to go and let's be honest Chelsea are likely to offer more.

@FabrizioRomano: “Arsenal will have to decide how to proceed on the Ivan Fresneda deal. He’s yet to decide his future, with Borussia Dortmund also in the race and Real Valladolid keen to keep him on loan until the summer.” #afc

Low-stake away game with Man City is a proper storytelling. Hero needs a short showdown with a villain before a proper final fight.
>>
>>128679829
Apparently either cash was tight because of the stadium or Kroenke wasn't willing to spend unless he had a complete ownership stake so I doubt even if Wenger had wanted him back he would've had the choice.
>>
>>128679829
It's a tough one. Fabregas had a better season than Ozil in 14/15 but the rest of the time they were both in the same league together Ozil performed better than him. He was younger and had a better physical profile so I don't blame Wenger for sticking with him rather than bringing the prodigal son home.
>>
>>128678696
Fat cunt.

Kroenke is richer boehly by several billion dollars but insists on this dortmund approach to running a club. He could at least give us a 100m signing every season. We'll get overrun in every transfer window if he doesn't because its not like boehly will stop, or the Newcastle Saudis will go easy, or city will be any less aggressive in their spending, or potential new united and Liverpool owners spending less than their current owners (who already spend 100m on shit players like Anthony and 80m on nunez). Big stan needs to step the fuck up.

The Bellinghams of the world. Potentially mudryk. Had we not completely lucked out on saka coming through the academy, odegaard falling out of favour with madrid, city giving us an amazing deal for zinchenko and jesus, saliba hitting world class form after we bought him and loaned him, we would have to pay at least 80m for these players in their current form if they were playing elsewhere. You don't always get the stars aligning like they have for us with this group of players. At some point you'll have to spend the money on the next saka, odegaard or saliba.

What a low IQ comment. Ozil wasn't the one blocking Fabregas from coming. He's a CM. He wasn't even playing as a 10 for Chelsea either. At the time the midfield wasn't even an issue(probably needed a serious DM though) as we made chances for fun.

>>128680743
Yes I agree 100% but they must BE the next Saka and anons are quick to jump on every single meme out there. I must say that our business has been looking good and yes there is luck but Edu so far has gained a lot of trust. At the beginning of the window anons were saying we won’t get anyone and we already have two and one is PL quality. We have had a lot of falseflaggers who just jump on any meme to try and spread negativity.

Dortmund would be an elite club if they had any semblance of player retention.
>>
>>128680939
But that's my point. I'm not talking about hype jobs. I'm talking about the real deal like bellingam or haaland. We have to at the very least be in contention for these players, not falling short like with mudryk. Granted mudryk is a bad example because he's unproven but say the next haaland comes along and we aren't willing to meet the valuation, that's just pathetic for an owner worth billions. If we win the premier league this season all of us will be expecting us to sustain this success and continue competing for the league and then also champions league, but if we aren't bothered to sign the best players and happily let them go to rivals what's the fucking point.
>>
>>128680743
But “lucking out” and getting good players on the cheap and through the academy is precisely the strategy that works. Go for great players the selling club doesn’t want, take advantage of your academy. It’s how most great teams are built.
>>
>>128681006
They just need to find a manager who has a system which gets the best out of all the random players Boehly is sticking on 10-year contracts. Simple.
>>
>>128680962
Boehly doesn't have a talent or quality problem. All his problems are managerial. Tuchel won a CL with a worse team than what they have now.
>>
>>128681076
Bellingham is all hype, retard. We can probably get a player as good for half of his inflated price.
>>
>>128681077
That doesn't work for sustained success. We've been doing that for a while now and it's finally coming to fruition but we can't keep relying on that model of waiting years for players to develop. Sometimes you need the highest quality player in the here and now. And judging by how the market has been moving many of those players will command extremely high fees.
>>
>>128681128
He's statistically one of the best young players in world football. Him and saka were the standout players for England at the world cup.
>>
>>128681064
All the young talented players they get go there specifically because they are the worlds biggest stepping stone. There was no chance of them permanently keeping Haaland or Sancho and they won’t be keeping Bellingham either.

True, plus as a team which will be getting Champions League we can talk seriously about signing him - unlike a certain other fanbase who seem to think they've already signed him.

>>128681227
Yeah if we could have Dortmund's scouting and not be a stepping stone, we'd be unstoppable.
>>
>>128681229
Sancho is also a good player. He just has a crap team and manager. He really should have gone to man city.
>>
>>128681241
Well what Dortmund also have is the luxury of a weaker league so they can afford to give worthwhile game time to developing players rather than just cup matches or throwing them on for 5 minutes at the end.
>>
>>128681229
very wise, you need to take a long hard look at Dirtmund’s ‘prospects’ and consider very carefully if they are able to recreate their form in the premiership.
Or just go to their cheaper knockoffs in RB Salzburg and snatch up whatever talent they are sellin’ to Leipzig or the German Bundesliga in general.

It was a tough decision for Cedric to leave this month. He’s been desperate to play, but leaving Arsenal now is a difficult call for any player, given the opportunity they have. Ultimately, his desire to play & Marco Silva’s determination to sign him made his mind up.

I'll go with the reverse. I had just bought my Clichy shirt and wore it proudly for two weeks and then out of nowhere he just left for City without any rumours or anything. It felt pretty grim. Nowadays I am happy I have the shirt but back then it felt like I was robbed.

My coach for the local football team bought a shirt with Senderos on the back when he was first signed. He said that it never left the wardrobe because he was so disappointed.

>Declan Rice has progressed the ball 109 metres per 90 minutes with his ball carries this season in the Premier League, the most of any central midfielder.
Not even saying Arsenal should definitely sign him but adding some balance - he does have some great stats even despite West Ham massively underperforming.

Arsenal are interested in Juventus winger Federico Chiesa. The forward is one of many players strongly linked with a move away from Turin following a probe into the club's previous transfer dealings. Chiesa could be available for as little as €20million.

I agree that deep block + counter tactics aren't sustainable in the long-term but unlike Conte ETH aspires to a higher standard of play. It remains to be seen whether he can pull off the transition to something better once his current tactical model gets found out. Arteta ended up losing half a season getting that transition off the ground.

so the heat map of an 8, how does his heat map compare to xhaka's or partay's? It's interesting how much he drifts to the left hand side which is where zinchenko/martinelli/trossard would normally be. Would that allow them to shift into the center more (Zinchenko already does this alot)?

On paper Rice looks like a good pickup but I wonder if he's really worth the premium you'd be paying over some of the other available young CDMs. The problem of course being that none of them will be available until the summer when Arsenal could really use cover now. Is there any solid but relatively cheap options that could come in now and then be content to be rotation next season? Experienced would also be nice. Basically a DM equivalent of the Trossard signing?

Technically it sounds like Kiwior could fill in as a sub but not sure about if he'd be a good fit as a starter in Partey's role.

I remember Tuchel similarly once saying after a loss that it was a close match despite Arsenal completely dominating it by every metric
>>
>>128684955
What's he going to say? that his tactics vs arsenal were garbage because he was trying to do a high press with rashford/antony/weghorst and was leaving acres of space for zinchenko to advance the ball which was also leaving space for xhaka?

Rashford's goal was individual effort and White not being enough 1v1 to stop him which we all realized would be a key tactical matchup. That and a Ramsdale miscue on a corner were the only really legit threats. Arsenal were completely dominating possession and even when they were dispossessed in United's half United struggled to generate any sort of counter because Weghorst is insanely slow and Antony has terrible quality. Rashford is a good player having a great run of form but he's basically all they have right now.
>>
I’m glad you stuck around, Eddie
>>
>>128685114
Yeah the score line is misleading. We dominated the 2nd half, and Ramsdale single-handedly gifted them a goal. If the match had ended 2-2, it would’ve extremely unfair to Arsenal.
>>
Farmer's league and all but how is Sangare from PSV? He's young and still has a contract through 2027. Would PSV be willing to sell now when they are relatively close to Feyenoord at the top of the table?

Most of the good long term options for Partey/Xhaka replacement won't be available until summer which might be why Chelsea are willing to offer ridiculous numbers for Caicedo but with Elneny out the lack of depth to cover for Xhaka and Partey could be seen as a key weakness that could foil Arsenal's run for the league.

Precisely. Could add the eternal "we will use this result to draw much needed conclusions and thus improve for the next game" like we do here in Poland.

>>
>>128685258
xG was 2.7 to 0.4 which definitely confirms that they were very lucky to have it look as close as it was. I was afraid they'd be able to actually hold off for the draw after Ramsdale conceded that goal but that final 20 minutes was brutal.

What's weird is that EtH didn't even use all of his subs. In the past I would've expected a lot of time wasting and united players faking an injury to burn time but they didn't even do that effectively.

Partey and Xhaka are older. Trossard isn't planning on coming in and replacing Martinelli as the first option.

With CL football next year and a title race this year having people that can take pressure off of an older midfield seems like a smart move and you know the guy probably won't be expecting to come in and start every match.

Gives security now and then allows Arsenal to go all in on Rice or Zubimendi in the summer as the long term replacement. Not saying that he's the right player for Arsenal but that profile of good but not great but also likely to be humble enough to be comfortable sitting on the bench could be a viable strategic addition.

>What's he going to say?
I think Arsenal fans are still fundamentally insecure about the stature of this young team within the game so they get unduly defensive/upset when they don't feel other fans/pundits/coaches are giving the team enough in the way of recognition and respect. They see the talent and quality inherent to the team and want others to recognise it too. Because this team hasn't achieved anything yet, that outside validation has an outsized value in Arsenal fans' heads.

But of course, it's not ETH's job to make Arsenal fans feel good about themselves. He's trying to protect the confidence of his players and maintain a positive atmosphere around his club. I think it will take winning something for Arsenal fans to lose this complex.

Academy + picking out selected targets that can advance your squad or cover for areas where your prospects don't pan out is the way to go. Even Real can't spend blindly anymore since their transfers don't want to give up image rights and image rights were a big part of how Fiorentino paid for the Galacticos and most of the big signings since.

At the end of the day no club is going to be able to operate at a deficit every year and there is a limit to how much matchday + tv + cl + kit + naming rights money that a club can bring in and spend against. Yes FFP is still sort of a joke but Chelsea are signing long term prospect now at inflated fees mainly because they won't be able to do similar finance mechanisms starting in the summer. With how bloated contracts are these days who is willing to take on 30+ year old aging superstars on 250k+ a week anymore? Saudis? no one wants to fry in the desert. You give Salah a fat contract and he loses form? You don't have a way to offload him to someone else anymore. That's the risk of buying mercenaries every year to chase for CL football. You can only stay ahead of the pack for so long before age and shitters pull you back down like they've done to Liverpool, United and now Chelsea.
>>
>>128686471
Real failing to get Mbappe is an example where Real's buying power isn't always able to grab the best possible player at any position. Mbappe wanted to keep more of his image rights than what Real was willing to go (since Real makes a shit ton of money off of those). Players with intense commercial interest because they are a generational talent or they have incredibly charisma might increasingly shy away from Real as a result. Does Bellingham have the same sort of commercial revenue generation ability that Messi/Cronaldo/Mbappe/Nerman/etc had/have?

He's not very technically gifted or defensively solid. He's good at overlapping runs and the odd cross but zinchenko offers 10x more in his reading of the game and dictating the play. Tierneys play style would suit a team like Liverpool more than arsenal.

Obviously Ozil. Until that point, Arsenal's record transfer was still Reyes from 10 years earlier (or might have been Arshavin 5 years earlier, depending on sources) for half the price of Ozil. Everyone knew Arsenal had their massive reserves of cash and Ozil was seen as the first piece towards Arsenal finally becoming competitive again. Ozil was a household name playing for Madrid, and I don't believe there were any rumours surrounding it. It just came out around deadline day that Ozil was going to Arsenal. Shame Ozil was a total shitter, but no other transfer was even close to being that shocking or impactful.

True, kinda. London's extremely expensive in comparison to the majority of England. If you want to live in a flat in Zone 1/2 (red = 1, blue = 2) comfortably you could probs can get away with 70-80k. I know people living in zone 2 earning ~50k and they still share flats.
It's much cheaper if you go to Zone 3/4 but it's obviously gonna be uglier and feel less like the London you have in mind (AVOID CROYDON), but if you don't mind having to travel around an hour to get to Central it's not too bad.

a more in tune london fag could prob correct me more.

blacks are super autistic over their hairlines. makes sense as they can't grow fringes or do pathetic combovers to hide their balding.

thats cause they have to do mostly short hairstyles and then the hairline is key in those situations, very rare to see balding blacks tho they typically dont have bald genes

My brother lives quite close to the Arsenal stadium and I think he pays about £1k a month rent for a flatshare, it's a pretty small room but he has his own bathroom. I have another cousin in Canary Wharf who pays about £2.5k a month for a much nicer place.

It's also worth mentioning that tickets are extremely difficult to get these days, even you live right next to the stadium.

Arsenal Plan to sign a central midfielder before the window closes amid fear El Neny could be out for the rest of the season (
@garyjacob
)
>>
Zubimendi IN, it's a shame trossard took the 19.
Spanish midfielders do well in the EPL, Mikel wants him, he plays for a good team, and he's handsome with a good basque name. I always rated their left footed midfielder higher though.
Also, RIP Elneny, a trooper for this team.
>>

The Times is always the last with football news but if they're reporting it then it does mean they've also individually verified it with club sources. The only player named is Zubimendi but that seems unlikely before the summer.

Will take two "shock" defeats for Arsenal to spiral into bad form and bottlw the title. They are already performing wildly over statistical expectations. Obviously this could continue for the rest of the season but it is very possible if not probable that they will drop form.

That’s Man United. Arsenal actually have the stats to back up the results.
>>
>>128695877
Our form has been so good this season that we've successfully managed to trick other teams into thinking we're good. Now we just have to watch them roll over for us like they have done for Liverpool and City in past seasons. We're not going to have shock defeats because teams now fear Arsenal again.

>>128696089
Unironically this.
You can see the opposite happening to Liverpool this season, nobody fears them anymore so defenders like TAA get preyed upon and the opposition defenders don't give the space and respect their attackers used to have in the past.
A good run of form can snowball quite nicely when the other team starts to fear and respect us, thus giving us more opportunity to keep said run going.
Prime example of this, for a particular player now, was Saka's goal against Tottenham. You could see how Sessegnon was scared of Saka and that caused him not to commit, leaving him to go to the byline.
>>
>>128696214
To be honest Sessengon is shit defensively and Spuds would have been better off to play a flat 4 at the back and use Davies as their LB

Hopefully his words have a good influence on Lokonga at some point in his career. They're always pictured together and he was the first one who ran onto the field to celebrate with Eddie at the final whistle

>>128696089
Teams do respect Arsenal far more now. Newcastle gave up trying to attack after 10 minutes. If you play like the it doesn't matter is Zinchenko leaves a massive hole at LB to crowd to midfield because teams can't even attack it. Compare that to some of the home games at the start of the season.

Nah, Tierney passes well. He isn't that great at driving the ball and he doesn't offload the ball at the right times like Zinchenko does, but I am MORE than happy with KT as our 2nd string LB. I rate him, and if Zinchenko gets injured I feel confident KT would be able to cover for him while still helping Arsenal play 10/10 high quality elite football.

Tierney was asked to invert a few times this season while playing LB and he actually did that fine. Obv Arteta doesn't trust KT to invert nearly as much as Zinchenko, but KT has demonstrated he still has the positional IQ to invert when needed.

I really think the only reason Arteta would want KT to leave is because of injuries, attitude, or a mutual understanding that Tierney is too good to be playing 2nd string

----------Xhaka--------Partey------Ødegaard-------
---Zinchenko---Gabriel---Saliba---Tomiyasu---

>>
>>128698030
You're sort of right but not really. Depends on who we play. Tomiyasu is good at preventing counterattacks in the left fullback spaces, but not good at progression in that role.

Tomiyasu is a really awesome player to have though, a swiss army knife to play anwhere along a back 4 or 3

Tierney is good in defence and in the final third but lack quality when trying to get the ball from the back up to the final third. Zinchenko is the opposite of all those. Extremely good at getting the ball forward and keeping possession, lacks defensive quality and can't really beat his man in the final third or make good runs for other players to use. Although he is good at moving the ball creating openings for other players.

Just like you I think that if Tierney would be sold it would be because he is too good to not play or that his playing style is just not what Arteta wants.

It's because we could find talented goalkeepers but couldn't nuture them because of an incompetent GK coach
I forgot who the GK coach under Wenger was it was like Gary Peyton or something like thay but Fabianski and Szczesny both said he was incompetent in a joint Polish interview.
Some examples include: Showing a reel of conceded goals with the message "You aren't perfect." With no real lesson on how to improve. When discussing saving penalties l "Watch out for Hazard, he likes to shoot the opposite corner of where you're thinking." He basically fumbled every GK prospect we had aside from Martinez

Opinion on current GK coach, Iñaki Caña Pavón? David Raya, Neto, André Onana, Ramsdale, Runarsson, Matt Turner, Matt Ryan were our targets, if that's related.

His work as a coach can only be judged after many years because our goalkeepers are young and we have to see how they develop

Training is about what you would expect as well.
As long as there's no 2014 FA Cup Final charge that Fabianski did I'd say he's alright.

Pep (Arteta) “He’s a supporter of Arsenal. Always he jumped and celebrated (when he was with City) except one team. I’d jump and when I turned around he was sitting there. That team was Arsenal”

I have an inkling suspicion that we're gonna trigger Zubimendi's release clause on deadline day just like we did Partey's.

I posted it a few years ago but there was an Athletic article talking about the one time when Pep put Arteta in complete charge of City and that was against Arsenal.

wonder if i should pay for the athletic, is there even any point

This was a fun read. Nice that Mertesacker and Arteta lived at the same hotel and decided to sort the team as players and now they are doing it as manager/coach.

Nice that Arteta acted as the policeman in the squad making sure people weren't late and all that. He has been doing the same since becoming manager.

Also, "At this stage, Sterling wasn’t yet the clinical goalscorer we know now, although he nevertheless got himself into dangerous goalscoring positions". Lol

How long do you lot think he'll stay at Arsenal? Reminder that he could stick around another 15 years and still be young enough for another job abroad.

he can fuck off when he wins the CL

No - use the Bypass Paywalls Clean extension. You can browse the website fully, for free. Also The Telegraph and a fair few other sites.

Yeah I did enjoy that article but the outright best one for info on Arteta's mindset is

>Friends would visit Arteta’s apartment in Manchester and be taken aback, alarmed even, by the way he was living, with notes and tactical diagrams stuck on the walls.

is it autism? feel like you have to be autistic to obsess over things like he is

City are still heavy favourites to win the league and you would have to be literally delusional to think otherwise. Arsenal's squad depth is crap. We have no depth in midfield bar Vieira who is still adjusting to the league. No cover for Partey or Xhaka & Elneny is injured for the rest of the season. We're an injury to either of them from falling into a top 4 race. Kiwior just got here & doesn't even speak english. He mostly played as a CB. We can't expect him to adequately cover for Partey or Xhaka so soon. An injury to Partey last season and we went off the rails. We still haven't addressed the issue. Lokonga isn't even good enough to play against Oxford let alone PL sides during crunch time.

>>128706902
There's a disconnect or an aloofness to him which even that article mentions and that's a trait I've seen in autistic people as well. But then he could just be very driven. It's certainly a fine line.

>>128707066
>City are still heavy favourites to win the league

It’s not November anymore. Arsenal are the favorites now by every metric. Maybe City will end up winning the league, but they are definitely not the favorites and nor should they be. Arsenal have decidedly been better than them.
