The complete list of the 61 players that our new manager will certainly buy

By Sir Hardly Anyone and R.E. Ports.

The team of intrepid opinionators at Sky Sports have told us that Arsenal need to replace the entire team if the club want to escape relegation next season, which makes Craig Burley seem positively modest in believing that that Arsenal need to sign just six new players this summer.  He said,

“That statement, a quote from Wenger, is still flying around – I think it’s relatively fresh – about that he’s convinced they’re only two or three players away from challenging.   My God. If that’s not reason enough why Arsenal are getting him out and moving in a different direction, I don’t know what is.

“They need full-backs, they need centre-halves, they need central midfielders. The only position they might get away with is up front because they’ve got [Alexandre] Lacazette and Aubameyang.   “You might get away with it. The rest of it, there’s six or seven players at least needed there.”

I am not sure that the Burley character knows about Ainsley Maitland-Niles or come to that Mo Elneny, although he’d probably dismiss the former as “a kid” and the latter as “a reserve”.  Ah well, we shall see.  And maybe he doesn’t rate Wilshere and Ramsey either.

Anyway if the manifestation of Burley speaks the truth, then fortunately there is no shortage of players who are already on their way according to the papers and their bloggettas.  Among the most recent listings are the following, but really, these journalists and their chums are hardly doing their job if we can only come up with four new names in the past week.

The full chart of all the men said to be about to play for Arsenal next season is given below.   Here are the latest additions…

1: According to Sport Witness the Portuguese “outlet” (which sounds like a drain but seemingly isn’t) says Arsenal wan to sign  Leite but are being really stupid and only offering €10m for him when Liverpool have already offered €20m for Diogo Leite and Diogo Queirós, leaving Arsenal with no chance.

2: “Gunners eye Layvin Kurzawa and Piotr Zielinski,” so says “The Week” telling us that “PSG’s Kurzawa could replace Hector Bellerin while Napoli star Zielinski is seen as an ‘essential signing’”.  The Birmingham Mail is telling us Arsenal are “set to beat Liverpool” by paying £57m.   Liverpool have admitted defeat according to the Express.

3:  Ajax player Matthijs de Ligt has handed in a transfer request and is seen as ideal for Arsenal with Mert retiring and Kos being injured.

4: Arsenal and Manchester City  and many others are leading the Premier League interest in signing Norwich City star James Maddison, according to reports in the British media.  The Daily Mirror and the Sun have Tottenham, Everton, Brighton and Southampton all interested as well.    Maddison has scored 14 goals and making eight assists in 44 Championship appearances for the Canaries.

5: Jack Wilshere is about to sign a new three year deal according to the Sport Review.

Here is the list of all the players we are buying in the summer.

    I luv it !

    The thing is we don’t know who that new Arsenal manager will be for us the Gooners to identify him and start studying his character, his mentality, his performance record in a top club as manager in any of the European 5 top leagues. And from there, we’ll attempt to start projecting if he’s the kind of a manager who can move Arsenal forward to the next level far above the level the outgoing Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger was able to move the club to.

    Nevertheless, depending on the terms of the achievements he’s told to achieve for Arsenal by the Arsenal biard within a framework of time and the fund to support him is made available to him to match that framework of time, say he should manage the Gunners to win the Premier League Title and add one of the domestic Titles of the FA Cup or the League to it. And also win the Europa League Cup too for Arsena next season’s campaign. That’s 3 Titles the Arsenal board will demand he should deliver to Arsenal at least in his first year or at most in his second year as the Gunners boss. But whatever be the case, he mustn’t fail to make the top 4th place finish and also at least win one of the domestic Cups completion including the win of Europa League Cup all in his first year at Arsenal. But in his second year at Arsenal he should be told not to fail to win the Premier League Title and the CL. More so if the Arsenal board gives him the money that will enabled him to do 2 to 3 top quality player signings next season and in the next season that followed it to strengthen his first team squad first season with 2 of his new signings to serve as direct replacements for the departing Per Metersacker and Santi Cazorla in the Arsenal back line and in the midfield. But he could increase his signings of 2 by one more. And I think a striker signing to replace the lackluster goals scoring Danny Welbeck might be in order. But does Arsenal need to do a top new goalkeeper signing in the summer? Because by and large, Cech nd Ospina are still good goalkeepers to mann the goalpost for Arsenal next season with Macey remaining their understudy. But if Arsenal have more money after doing 2 – 3 signings in the summer feel they still need to do a top grade goalkeeper signing and find a better one than Cech and Ospina, they could sign him on.

    Finally, if the new Arsenal manager in his first year at the club chooses to go prolific to win the PL Title next season by driving the Gunners crazily to the hilt to win like Antonio Conte did when he drove Chelsea crazily to the hilt to win the PL Title last season and won it in his first year as the Chelsea manager. But he had Diego Costa then who helped him to achieve that feast. Nonetheless, could Aubameyang, Lacazette, the new striker to be signed and the highly paid Mezut Oezil jointly performed exhilaratingly to help the new Arsenal manager to win the PL Title likewise in his first year at Arsenal next season? Hmmm, we’ll see.

    Excuse me, I need to edit my comment and repost it.

    The thing is we don’t know who that new Arsenal manager will be for us the Gooners to identify him and start studying his character, his mentality, his performance record in a top club as a former or current manager in any of the European 5 top leagues. And from there, we’ll attempt to start projecting if he’s the kind of a manager who can move Arsenal forward to the next level far above the level the outgoing Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger was able to move the club to.

    Nevertheless, depending on the terms of the achievements he’s told to achieve for Arsenal by the Arsenal biard within a framework of time and the fund to support him is made available to him to match that framework of time. Say, he should manage the Gunners to win the Premier League Title and add one of the domestic Titles of the FA Cup or the League Cup to it. And also win the Europa League Cup too for Arsena next season’s campaign. That’s 3 Titles the Arsenal board will demand he should deliver to Arsenal at least in his first year or at most in his second year as the Gunners boss. But whatever be the case in his first year, he mustn’t fail to make the top 4th place finish and at least also win one of the domestic Cup completitions including the win of Europa League Cup. All in his first year at Arsenal. But in his second year at Arsenal he should be told not to fail to win the Premier League Title and the CL. More so if the Arsenal board gives him the money that will enabled him to do 2 to 3 top quality player signings in this coming season and in the next season that followed this coming season to strengthen his first team squad first in his first season with 2 of his new signings to serve as direct replacements for the departing Per Metersacker and Santi Cazorla in the Arsenal back line and in the midfield. But he could increase his signings of 2 by one more. And I think a striker signing to replace the lackluster goals scoring Danny Welbeck might be in order. But does Arsenal need to do a top new goalkeeper signing in the summer? Because by and large, Cech nd Ospina are still good goalkeepers who are looking can continue to successfully manned the goalpost for Arsenal next season with Macey remaining their understudy. However, if Arsenal have some money left in their transfer kitty after doing 2 – 3 signings in the summer and feel they still need to do a top grade goalkeeper signing and find a better one than Cech and Ospina, they could sign him on.

    Finally, if the new Arsenal manager in his first year at the club chooses to go prolific to win the PL Title next season by driving the Gunners crazily to the hilt to win it like Antonio Conte did when he drove Chelsea crazily to the hilt to win the PL Title last season and won it in his first year as the Chelsea manager.

  • U know who

    The audacity

    http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11675/11366068/hugo-lloris-says-tottenham-securing-champions-league-football-means-more-than-a-trophy

    Anyways

    Sven will likely be shortlisting Felkir, Soyurucu, and a few I’ve mentioned not listed.

    Butland is a no brainer, but Jose will want to go bigger, City did the position. Chelsea lose a threat but he’s a smart boy and will question the owners approach. Liverpool will be our only serious opposition with the Spuds having a long term no:1, little money and in need of quality outfield.

    We are the best option. Cillessen is mighty fine, but Barcelona look like they would rather hold onto him and consider him for the 1 jersey rather than increase their wage bill which stands at 80%+ of disposable income.

    Given only Sky, the Republican owners buddies are suggesting De Gea is renewing, it seems that a swap deal including Bale could materialise.

    Lukaku ahead of Bale, Alexis left and Lingard right is quote a combination, except without a three man midfield, you have a Pigba problem. And he’s right he plays best as part of a three, with freedom. Allegri got that much.

    Plus Jose prefers the inverted 4-3-3 with Matic as the first pivot. Which seriously makes Alexis a problem, but Bale is best at 10. Zidane, needs someone to want a 10, Bayern have put feelers out and it’s a good move.

    Jose needs to lose Mata, Valencia making the top four is helpful. Mata and Mustarfi could be done quite reasonably. Which only leaves him stuck with Herrera, Shaw, Damian will likely join Juve or another Italian team.

    You aren’t getting anything out of Naples right now.

    Montreal could easily make it at either Valencia or preferably Villereal who will again feature in EL next season. A move which could well see him link up once more with Santi, I’m sure they are discussing it, two such good characters, Monreal has probably been the equivalent of his err nurse.

    Bashuyi will probably become permanent, Chelsea just have to appear reluctant, no other owners buy it anyway, but the fans need to remain deluded. PSG coming in for Man he, who they desperately need to step up in CL. FFP their only obstacle, but nobody argues with Qatar in this political climate. Plus they have a few to offload. Maria and Cavani look set to leave. Kante, Rabiot, Verratti give you wonderful balance.

    I can’t see PSG offloading two RB in 6 months but could be, Munier is their best option going forward and Alves remains.

    I think Juventus are one to watch, the Allegri chat will be about going forward and club direction. He’s lost big names, courtesy of the poor state of league finances and attendances. The man himself has hinted at key departures in recent weeks and Dybala is one they will want to keep but surely the most coveted. Behind him Pjanic, with Sandro, on a few shortlists and Asamoah surely on his bike, whilst Khediera and Rugani, maybe deemed surplus to requirements. I’d advise the old lady to loan the matter, Can, replaces Sami, they will look to keep Panic, but always sell for the right money.

    They will be aware that Roma is aging, both Milanese clubs are struggling as are Lazio. Recouping some money in the off season seems sensible, where is the important question. I could see them offloading Mario. They will probably keep Dybala unless City or Real come asking. Barca are keeping quiet, their finances and legal breaches too well documented for the old standard. Griezman is their main target and looks done given his wife is house hunting in the only city capable of challenging the Capital domestically.

    So that looks like Messi behind him Dembele and Coutinho out of position either flanks. After the Dembele show the other night he’s going nowhere. Sensational performance, their best player by a distance. Iniesta showed Coutinho what is expected as he leaves to reduce the wage demands. True fan!

    Slowly the Catalan club rebuild, Dembele is Et’o, Coutinho, Iniesta, Griezman his own incarnation, just super talented, Ronaldiho of you like, no where near his level. The best to grace the game, it was never about titles or even winning. Ronnie the rocket quality.

    They do need a Bosquets and a Xavi. A young CB and LB and RB. I expect them to wait on Hector, and he to wait and decide how British he became, later. He’s a Dinner and a Londoner, hard to wash out. Plenty of examples of why you don’t make that switch to be fair.

    Athletico have produced so much talent, they are regenerating quietly without spending much at all. I do think Oblal for Courtois males a load of sense. Oblal wants out, Courtois wants out and to return, to where he felt good.

    Navas, Keylor, improves a lot of back lines, but can David DG wait, if Barcelona sort their wage bill they have a problem. Barcelona have a similar problem with Ter Stegen. Allison is good, but bit that good. Speaking of, Szczesny, if he isn’t as good as I think, Gigi would have said.

    James goes Bayern permanently, and Robben and Ribery are done basically.

    Asensio to stay, nobody wants to pay £75m for Isco. But I expect he, Bale, and Kovacic to be the casualties. Sevilla will hope to hold 7th if not move up to avoid 3 qualifiers. They along with Betis and Villereal could be worthy courtiers.

    With Dortmund back in the CL places with solitary game remaining and all of Bundesliga’s top dogs back in contention Bayer and Dortmund will be hoping to reinforce for a sustained run in they competition and mount an unlikely title challenge. Bayer maybe a dark horse in the transfer market at the league’s second best club in terms of cash and value.

    Domestically; Burnley have picked up the Lochnar, the poisoned chalice of El foorball. Reinforxe for the competition and you risk the overspend. But either way, your best 11 will want to taste Europe, which means you overwork the squad and don’t spend Thurs, Sunday, or you buy and use reserve in the league and drop points. Burnley will have to raid the three dropping out, but Sean knows they work ethic he values and will undoubtedly combine the two options well. A very good manager, I admire his work with Burnley, sensible to take that club onwards and upwards, rather than copy Moyes I’ll fated move.

    Speaking of, Everton will surely be without a manager and that being the case sooner has got to be better than early next season.

    Bolasie, Gylfi in behind, Walcott right, buy left, Keane to partner Morgan and a LB, Shaw would be perfect. You’ll make too 7, Evans partnering Williams, right on Mangala reserve.

    Keep Niasse and Davies good bench if you bought Welbeck you’d have Bolassie there too, I’d go for Welbeck, he’s what they need versatile CF who can play RW LW., Tuson back up.

    Sell Mori and Niasse, release Phil and Wayne. Get Steklenberg gone, arguably Robles too.

    From 17 – 9 I expect little significant change. Palace will surely lose Haha, OH look that’s Everyone ideal left winger sorted, we know you are flush.

    Newcastle will replace Burkey in the top 8, certainly if Benitez stays, could be a European spot in it if they get new owners. It seems a matter of when not if. Mike is no fool, it will come down to his accountants abilities, hence the stay in Staveleys But, she is no fool either it seems. £400m easy. Great support and capacity. Just don’t let Benitez buy his own players.

    Is it only one Welsh team at a time then? Why don’t we incorporate the SPL and Irish Leagues into the EFL creating the UKFL? Can’t even welcome our fellow islanders.

    That said I expect the top two from the Championship to stay up, with Wolves and Cardiff consistently playing good football. If Fulham come up, for Dodi and Dad please. I can see the investment coming to support. Any one else and they are going straight back down, along with Huddersfield and probably Brighton. Unless West Ham’s off field antics don’t improve.

    Leicester are going to struggle again, after they lose possibly Ndidi, and certainly That. Will Jamie dare to try go somewhere, he suits United and Liverpool massively. It’s that deal chin.

    Xrdan joining Southampton would suit both to a T, attic, Shares, Xhakiri. Very nice. They have to realise they can’t sell quite that much at once again. Was rather close.

    The likes of Watford and Bournemouth will look to quoetly add to the squad in order to ensure safety comes much easier next season, but with the usual suspects all performing in the top four league’s, mid table teams will again have to be particularly candid and show great endeavour in the current financial clime where football is concerned.

    This is where S’hampton have excelled and I will expect that to be the case once more.

    Arsenal – well it’s not quite quality you need, unless we are talking at FB, delivery is important along with mobility. At CB it’s height and Pace, and 90mins of concentration. At DM, well it’s a DM.

    But what is missing is grit and the will to win. Plus a winger. And a GO, who wants to prove his worth.

    Butland is everything we need. Let’s pray we have the manager sorted soon, Henry all day everyday, if you tell me I’m playing for the charismatic and enigmatic character who doesn’t know what losing looks like; I’m packed.

    Golovin
    Meyer
    Butland
    Diallo
    Carvalho/Ndidi.

    We can win next season’s league if we believe it from pre-season, increase competition at CB and get a DM. Plus buy a first choice LB and a good reliable character to challenge at RB. But as before the solution May well be returning from loan.

    As someone else acknowledged, this team is a lot better than it’s showing. The general committed Seppuku, honour him.

    IWIT

  • U know who

    Man he = Kante
    Attic = Tadic
    THAT = Ryad
    Shares = Soares
    GO = GK
    Haha = Zaha (Everton LWF sorted)
    Oblal = Oblak
    Bayer are in EL

    Also I forgot Martial is MU big casualty.

    And for me 4-3-3

    Aubameyang Ozil Lacazette

    Wilshere Defensive Midfielder Ramsey

    Diallo Rugani Chambers Bellerin

    Butland

    Or 4-2-3-1

    Auba
    Mikhi Ozil Golovin
    Aaron DM

    Same back 5

    For me bench/rotation shouls be

    Lacazette
    Iwobi
    Nelson
    Niles
    Mavrapanos
    Meyer
    Cech

    FYI that’s 18 (only 15 need registration 5 are home grown.

    23 squad

    Holding
    Koscielny (it’s half a season)
    Kolasinac/Cohen
    Elneny
    Xhaka/Jenkinson
    That’s 22 and 6 home grown who must be registered.

    One reserve GK a RB make 24, Xhaka 25

    At least this will be my exact approach to the next football manager and so easy to do. Cheap as well. Very sensible. Unless Soyucu for secures in which case no need for Rugani.

    I’d possibly switch Sead for Cohen, I said 1000 times pace is the deadliest asset in football. He was free.

    Mustarfi, I do not suffer fools. And if swap Xhaka out , if Jenkinson rediscovered his WHU form.
