Arsenal Message Board
Just been going through our squad and frankly it's no wonder we are where we are, the standard of our second string players is crap.
I have just listed players I think need to bugger off so it can free up cash for new players and take the ease off salaries.
Marouane Chamakh (7 million)
Denilson (3 million)
Carlos Vela (4 million)
Nicholas Bendtner (3 million)
Johan Djourou (3 million)
Abou Diaby (4 million)
Theo Walcott (12 million)
Lukasz Fabianski ( 3 million)
Andrei Arshavin (7 million)
Manuel Almunia (3.5 million)
Sébastien Squillaci (3 million)
Yossi Benayoun (Return reject)
With over 50 million in sales and an investment of 50 million from the board we can bring in 5/6 very good players that can do a proper job.
I have guessed at what these players would go for because you just don't know the market now days, personally I would pay someone 3 million to take Bendtner.
Two new defenders, two new midfielders and two new forwards and then we have a chance of challenging next year.
Who else would you get rid of?
What would happen if RVP was to leave and how much would Arsenal demand for him £35 million maybe...God forbid he left!
The player is worth the price someone is prepared to pay for him.
Do I think Chamakh is worth 7 to 10 million, it doesn't matter what I think, but do I think Arsen would get that for him, probably close to it I would imagin.
Chamakh will do well for another club in a different league but I think he is punching above his weight in the PL.
I think the same could be said for a lot of our squad and if you look at the list of players I think we can afford to get rid of without effecting the club they will all fit in to that category.
