Definitely take him on pay as you play. He's better than Xhaka and Lokonga. We are now desperate for a quick fix in CM.
Still need to sign a long term option as well though
Invincibility lies in the defence; the possibility of victory in the attack.

mmmm won't cost us a lot then, he is injury prone and will spend most of the time on the physio's table. :)

Wilshere can't play in our deep midfield pair, they are supposed to be the anchor of our team, Wilshere would get run over.

Jack is more a CAM type, closer to ESR than anyone else, in fact ESR is highly similar to a young Jack Wilshere.

Not sure what Wilshere you remember? Jack was more of a proper CM, he was never quick enough to play the CAM role from what I can remember. He used to collect the ball from deep and start the play forward, or start intricate play from outside the opposition box when we were in the final 3rd.

Watch YouTube. Most of the time he was in CM

Don’t think we really NEED him but as a bonus attacker he wouldn’t be a bad option. Doubt barca want another loan though.



Another mistake not getting him

Just loan Wijnaldum and be done with it. He’ll comfortably be our best midfielder.

No he didn't, CM doesn't mean Deep Lying CM / CDM though does it.

Why do you have to be quick to play no10? is Odegaard or Ozil quick? weird statement.

He was moved deep once in the dying embers of his career as cover for a while but most of his actual Arsenal career went like this ...........

Started off on the wing

Moved to the centre as a CM / CAM

Wenger used to play a 4-1-4-1 which we used to call a 4-5-1 but the actual shape was Song, Flamini, Coquelin as the CDM with Ramsey and Wilshere as the CM / CAM's.

Again depending on what period of Arsenal you're talking about, Wilshere was here for a long time and didn't always make first team starter, especially when we had Cazorla, Rosciky and Ozil.

In fact I remember when he was put deep for a period and we were having discussions about the fact that he's going to get injured ......... yep, the time we played City and Toure just brushed him off, we were all saying that's why he shouldn't play there, he was ending up as a heap on the ground a lot.

I know we have strikers out of contract soon but Laca can do a job until the summer.

Midfield should be the focus IMO as we get overrun in the middle.

I'd say a top class CM would give us more of a chance of top 4 than a striker.


I think there's talk of Laca leaving this window.

Worst transfer window ever?

Last summer and the one where we only bought cech tough to beat but if we get no one knowing we need players, this might top it
