Although I must admit, I'm feeling thoroughly underwhelmed by in. SSN were at our training ground and said something about someone having a medical, but my signal cut out when they said who - I couldn't even say for sure if they were coming in or going out, it might have been Bentley to QPR. They then went on to talk about strikers, so didn't sound like it was one of them coming in.
Anyone heard any juicy rumours? Clearest I've got is...
Ooh, SSN just said Andros Townsend arrived at QPR's medical place to find the deal was off! And him, Bents, & JJ were all maybes earlier but they're all currently off - note the currently. Sounds like there are a few offers in for him, I hope only for loan deals, he was one of our key faces for the future a while back.
Also, our academy's apparently meant to be stuffed full of youngsters ready to start bedding into the first tam, which perhaps explains cutting the older players; imagine being mentored by the likes of Gallas, Bale or Parker!

Ever since the News Of The World scandal, no ones tapping phones, hence, no wild rumours this transfer window...and what rumours there were (did you hear the one about the Bale for D. Villa and cash deal) so outrageous as to not even stir interest.

Well at least Holtby may be the missing link we're looking for in midfield.
Had a look at him on a few wed sites and from what i've seen is not too bad.
Has good ball controll/passing/energy/vision/pace/can score goals and is not frightened to get stuck in,which he showed against Norwich in his brief substition.
Also any player getting into the German national side comes with a good ENGINE.
With Sandro out for the rest of the season,i'm sure that Holtby can fill his boots and maybe,just maybe,he's the missing piece to our jigsaw?
At least AVB seems to know where we need to control games and if we can convert chaces into goals,then CL is ours.
Looking back,Berba was a snip at 6 mill and i'm sure we would be sitting at 3rd right now (JUST A THOUGHT).

Alan, normally I find your 'behind the scenes insights' entertaining, but don't you ever put my name in the same sentence as 'gunners shirts' again, you hear me!
SB, Holtby looks like taking a playmaker role, or at least the link-up player - he's described as a midfielder/forward on the reports I've seen, but as I said before I've not seen much of him previously. When he came on at the weekend it seemed to be to allow Bale to move more centrally, perhaps there are thoughts of him filling that spot? Not sure how I feel about that, he likes to be the hero which isn't really doable for a winger so it might be an astute move... or he might need a manager to put him in his place and make him stay there, I can't decide!
John, I imagine that Holtby would generally be taking the place of a striker, either with Defoe or Ade being picked to play ahead of him based on the type of team (Ade for physical, Defoe for speedy).
As I mentioned, I've heard noises about our academy having loads of players ready to blood, maybe now's the time to do that with the likes of Obika/Carroll/Kane (when he's back from loan)?

Straight from the horses mouth. Harry has been approached by Arsenal to take over from Arsen Wenger at the end of this season.. They want him to link up and nurture Dennis Bergkamp for a couple of seasons before he takes over.
H---nbr's enquiring how much the Gunners shirts are, and Fab can't believe his luck. (You heard it hear 1st)

its a farce if u ask me (not that anyone would!).
we badly needed another striker & a playmaker since the summer. yet get neither!
its going to be an uphill struggle to get top 4 with this team.
we are walking on a knife edge as we have no quality cover if parker, dembele, bale or defoe get injured.
on a brighter note, we finally get rid of jenas!
