  • How many players/teams have rejected us this transfer window...I feel an inkling of joy amongst the press when these stories come out (true or not)...are they all Gooner supporters? So who so far, David Villa, Aguero, Carroll...PHIL effin NEVILLE...Come on!!

    Oh and how the hell do you (Chavs) announce a 70 million pound deficit and then go spend 75 million? Might get a visit from the Administartion Men before long with that kind of business acumen (how the hell do you do the double, do whatever in the other domestic cup and you're in the CL and end up with a 70 mill plus deficit...overpaid players I'm guessing (and the board and management staff too!). We'll see.
    So Torres and Luiz are now Chavs..and Carroll's a scouser...smh

    • Don't really want to talk about our failure in the market this window. Even the Charlie Adam move came too late but if we'd got him it's still another midfielder we all know (except Harry obviously) that we don't need.

      Have to agree with you Rambro re the chavs. All talk of great deals for Chelski without any reference to the 67.?m pound loss they strategically slipped into the mix. Wish the new financial regulations were already in place. Citeh and Chelski aren't stupid though, they know they have to sign everyman and his dog now so that when the new regs come in nobody can touch 'em anyway.

      Time for the lads we've got to stand up and be counted. If they want to keep playing in Europe it's time for them to prove it 'cause only they can do it now!

    • 20 mins yet to go till it closes... but it's looking pretty hopeless now. I am very disappointed that we've let the january window pass without strengthening our squad at all! (no... I didn't forget about Pienaar)
      I feel we've been spurned by all these players/clubs because we leave things too late and then scramble around like headless chickens going after almost anyone that plays a certain position.
      For some reason we don't focus on a target and just go after him with serious intention.
      We all knew Liverpool were after Suarez, it dragged on, but they got him. They even managed to focus in on Carroll, and again, they got him.
      These are two targets that we had in our sights, but we didn't show any real intention.
      Yes! Liverpool payed way too much for both, but if they click and do well on the pitch, they could very well leapfrog us in the table and perhaps even grab that unlikey 4th spot should any of that lot up there slip up.
      I certainly don't see us progressing what with our lack of firepower upfront and the casualty unit we have for a defence.
      This season is proving to be a let down, our strikers have let us down badly this season, and I feel that Harry doesn't seem to know or ackonowledge our frailties.
      The biggest worry for me, is what happens in the summer? Will we be able to hold on to the wonderful players we do have, and will we be able to attract any more of that ilk to our club? Because really, apart from lucking out on VdV in the previous window... we do seem to make a shambles of things in the transfer market.
      Transfers seem to be our biggest weakness
