“In Two Days We Will Have Gallas, Mascherano, Tevez, Cole & Reyes…”

Two days to go before the dreaded transfer window closes and so far we have only signed Rosicky all summer  Then to add to the frustration, there are nonsensical blog posts flying around falsely reporting that we are about to sign every player under the sun. I saw a headline a few days back saying:

“In two days we will have Gallas, Mascherano, Tevez, Cole & Reyes”

The internet is a crazy place.

So I’m not going lie.

The truth of the matter is that we all hope Wenger has something up his sleeve. That he whips out a world class player ready for us all to love. Someone proven but also someone who has fantastic potential to flourish into an even better player – but I’m finding it increasingly difficult to accept that anything is going to happen at all. Another youngster was here for a two day trial from Scotland and that is perhaps the only deal that could go through for about £500,000. Some may not want a signing but my own personal opinion is that our squad is thin at the moment and we need experience, especially ta the back and in defensive areas like Gilberto’s role.

Cole has been told to concentrate on Arsenal and if in two days time he is still here, then I will write a special piece just for him because we love him so much and I just can’t wait for him to be here all season *blank face*

The truth is that out of those players mentioned – the one that would really be a good signing would be Mascheran. Just for the simple fact that our defensive midfield options are literally limited to Gilberto, Flamini and Diaby. Let’s break that down.

Gilberto is a sound player who does a great job for the team…but on his own he isn’t enough. With Vieira he brought the best out of him and vice-versa. Flamini did wonderfully last season at left back, but could that be because we didn’t expect him to? Our expectations were low so when he performed to a decent standard we all got extraordinarily excited. I haven’t seen Flamini show that same level of performance as a defensive midfielder…yet.

The only thing I could see when you watch him over 90 minutes is that he seems to never get tired – which is fantastic. But not enough on its own. Throw in one of those long distance runners from the Olympics into an Arsenal midfield and that wouldn’t be enough either. However, I have great hope that slowly he can develop into a decent squad player, but I don’t think he will ever reach the heights of a Fabregas or to a certain extent to a level I believe Diaby could potentially reach.

Diaby is unfortunate to have injured himself so many times. He will be out for most of the season but you can see from his stature, his build and athleticism that he could add some steal into midfield. Alex Song is another but he has yet to impress in midfield. I think I speak for most Arsenal supporters on that note, but the apparent fee of £2.5 million for him seems to show us that Wenger has great faith in him. Lets hope what he sees in training is more accurate than what we have seen on the pitch.

So Mascharano would be an amazing acquisition. Is it likely? Perhaps not. But his agent has been in London for the past few days and that might suggest a move to England is eminent.

Let’s see what Wenger has in his pipeline.

    Oh ye of little faith –

    Trust me pal – if you had any right to write a blog – which clearly you don’t as you’re so uninformed – you would be aware that Masechrano and Tevez are undergoing medicals at Colney as we speak.

    I hope you retract the piece dickhead.

    And remember in the future – only write if you have insight.

    finally someone who has their head on their shoulders.

    we WONT sign tevez, mascherano or gallas. thats a fact.

    reyes might leave to athletico if reports are true that they have upped their bid. but he wont be replaced untill january.

  • Anonymous

    If anyone believes we could afford to sign Mascherano or Tevez without selling Cole and Reyes you are seriously misguided. Let’s just face the fact that we don’t have the money and get on with the season.

    The only thing that makes me think something may be in the Argentinian story is their game v Brazil played at the Emirates on Saturday, an opportunity for the club to show it’s potential to some of the best players in the world as well as being in the right place to sign a contract. When you look at the squad you wonder how the club can charge the highest ticket prices in world football and expect to get away with it. Both players also have sell on potential to Italy/Spain, when was the last time we made a big turn on a player?

    to the first commenter, the guy who started this rumour has admitted he made it up on one of the forums on arsenal mania.

    so before throwing insults around, see if it comes to fruition – otherwise you might look daft…

    looks like reyes might be leaving to athletico for £13.5 million; which means we could fund a move for tevez as an indirect replacement. he’s not a winger but it could see RVP or Walcott being played there as cover for rosicky.

    really cant see it happening, but its the only way i could possibly see any truth in the tevez rumour.

    we wont sign gallas because:

    1. he’d have to take a significant paycut

    2. he wants to play in italy.

    mascherano would be the best signing of the three as we need another top class holding midfielder. but that wont happen either

    basically if we sign anyone, it’ll be the scottish lad and maybe an experianced and unheard of central defender for a small fee.

    try not to get your hopes up.

    It’s quite possible these players have been to London Colney, but to have medicals?

    A few seasons ago, Brazil’s national team trained there.

    Given half our squad is away on International duty, and that we are hosting the game, it’s highly likley we also offered our training facilities to the squad(s)

    I’d love us to sign both players, but it would be a massive change of tact for the club.

    If we get 10-13m for Reyes, we may make a signing to replace him.

    AW did say he’d try and get 1, perhaps two players, but I’m not holding my breath it’s these two.

    BTW AFC do have the finances available to make 2 big signings in the 17-20m bracket, especially if recieving 10-13m for Reyes, but that wouldn’t leave much in reserve and I think AW is far too cautious a manager to bet the whole bank at once.

    One of these players, I could *perhaps* see us signing, both, we could only dream.

    HAHAHAHA!!! “Mascherano and Tevez are undergoing medicals as we speak” – mate that is the biggest load of bollocks I’ve ever read! They will be Man Utd players by tomorrow morning and we’ll be left with 2 unhappy players and our dicks in our hands with only Rosicky to show for it and a squad minus Bergkamp, Pires, Campbell, Lupoli, Bendtner, Smith, Larsson, Muamba, Gilbert and with Clichy, Senderos, Lauren and Diaby out for another 6 weeks minimum. For fuck’s sake, this is winding me up. Wenger doesn’t seem to see what everyone else, including his own board and players can see – that we’re way too lightweight. Can you picture us with Cesc and Gilberto injured/suspended and Song and Flamini as our centre-mids trying to get something at Stamford Bridge? What a joke.

    its a pity that we’re all gonna be miserable on friday.

    I was actually looking for something of some substance on Arsenal’s supposed signings but it’s all just speculation and regurgitated bullshit. The simple truth is we just have to wait until a real source comes good.

    we wont be signing anyone unless reyes pisses off back paella land.
    even then it will be some 12 year old who is part of our master plan to dominate fuk all.

    i have a season ticket in the club lounge area and im hacked off after forking out 3k to see Wenger stick with kids because they may get damaged if we brought in older experienced players. what fuking bullshit, we are not here to fuking nurture talent we are here to fuking challenge the chavs. Henry must be gutted he didnt sign for barca after being promised new players and all we sign is roky song and some portugese and scotish bed wetters.
    for fuk sakes even the yids are buying some decent players.
    we could have sold cole and bought chimbonda.

    As the doorknob polisher at the new Emiates stadium I can tell you for sure that Gallas, Tevez, Mascherano, Torres, Ribery, Baptista & Buffon were all having a kick-about ahead of their unveiling to the press later on today. Oh & PS. The chef’s at the training ground are all YTS retards who wouldn’t know Tevez if he came up to one & said “Una naranja por favor tu loco idiota!”

    Chelsea fans wouldn´t know history?

    Well, Arsenal bribed their way in to the top flight – the only club never to have earned the right on the field of play.

    In the 30´s (your most succesful period) Herbert Chapman got the best players with under the table payments and jolly ups during dark economic times…

    ALL OF YOUR TROPHIES (which for plastics like you means history – and i bet meanwhile you slag off glory hunters! Its so funny that you´re too thick to see the paradox) SHOULD BE NULL AND VOID.

    How´s that for history you plank?!!

  • nevermind

    Okay I dont KNOW who we are about to sign. I dont THINK we will sign Gallas because I dont THINK that Cole is going. (If Cole does stay he has to apologise to his team mates, The Club and the fans – if he doesn’t then Mr Wenger et al have made a mistake.) I do THINK that Reyes will be gone by midnight tomorrow probably to AM. Mascherano, Teves, Buffon?? I’m NOT SURE. All stories seem to have some logic and credibility, we need Mascherano, Teves would be a good replacement for Reyes (though not position for position) and an outstanding addition to our sqaud and Buffon is the best Golakeeper in the world – a hell of a capture considering JL’s erratic behaviour and his 2007 departure. I THINK that we will sign Illiasu, I have heard he impressed in trials and from what we saw at the World Cup he looked good enough. So, that is what I THINK and BELIEVE. What I KNOW as a MATTER OF FACT is that Arsenal Football Club have £90M cash in the bank and that around £55M of that is available to Mr Wenger if he wants it. What this means is that none of these signings are dependant upon us selling before midnight tomorrow and that Mr Wenger’s steadfast belief of Reyes’s and Cole’s value is not preventing us from buying.

In the premiership we will only play them twice so maximum amount of point you can get or lose from them is 6 points and and obviously drawing my point is stop getting blinded by them!!! we need to make sure we beat the rest !!! Chelsea, manu ,liverpool doesn’t consist of the whole premier league team !! should have started beating villa , Man city!!!!
