Not that he’s a fantastic player & that he’s a game changer but I don’t like the way fans in general fans have become conditioned to think about signing players and having to have a sell on value as well for them is important. 

The mancs signed VanPeirse with the plan to win the league immediately which they did sometimes regardless of age it’s worth spending big on a player even if theyre 29-30. 
 

The FSG indoctrination is working

Arsenal 'take out loan' which could help fund ambitious £130m triple transfer spree

Mikel Arteta has been honest that this window is a pivotal one for his project at Arsenal and is confident the club's owners will back him accordingly

I wish our owners took out a loan to buy players, that is really good business sense.

Surely you jest? Loans have to be paid back with interest. I dont know how profitable arsenal are but that loan represent's 3 years of Liverpool's pre pandemic profits to repay.

Do we actually do that anymore? Moneyball signings appear to be consigned to the distant past. Our most recent signing had no sell on value, our most expensive signing wasn't at an age where there could be any intention of making a profit on him. Klopp more than any other manager appears quite happy to let players honour the final year of their contracts. He's let Gini, Can, Sturridge, Moreno and Lalanna walk for free, if the policy was to have a sell on value all.5 would have been sold the summer prior. Even Mingolet and Lovren were let go because they wanted to go rather than us looking to get rid.

I don't know mate - seems a great way to do business that! I can't possibly think what could go wrong with that tactic. 

 

It is a ridiculous way to do business isn't it? What has happened to Arsenal?

Their owners have started showing some ambition and realised if they don't act now they will fall even further behind?

Yes, let's give props to Stan Kroenke for spending a little money to try not to finish about 7th for the 5th straight year. Huge ambition. Aspirational.

They are poorer off than us. We could have a gajillion bajillion pounds in the bank and we'd still be selling to buy.

Shame about Daka, you wouldn’t mind taking the chance on him for the price of what we’ll get for big Div and Wilson but you wonder in the club will have reservations after Minamino. Maybe the thinking is that if we can get Neuhaus for a reasonable fee we can go a bit bigger on a forward.

Loving the online moaning from the 'experts' on Daka. He scored for fun in a shit league and in European competition has 5 in 26. Miamino scored 11 in 39 in European games. 

 

£30ml is a probably to big a risk

@Ne Moe Imya will be disappointed to hear that Patson Daka is off to Leicester.

Yeah, disappointing for sure. Leicester are so smart, aren't they? Not sure he's our level just yet but shows all the signs of getting there. Very good move for them.

Are people really saying Daka must be shit because Minamino is? Who did Minamino used to play with? Clue: a big ugly Norwegian kid. 

 

I hate this stupid superstitious shit. Same with Italian players.

No, it's that he has a crap record in Europe. You can watch him play in Austria and determine he'd become a good player, but there's simply no proof at a high level.
