It's highly possible that Utd will sign both Sanchez and Ozil .....

Any decent replacements? At this rate AFC will be a serious mid table challenger.
Just beyond nightmare!

That's what you deserve when you keep setting the bar as low as possible.

True, sad how our ambitions have deteriorated so low.

Looks like Peps cooled on Sanchez. City just bid big for Shaktars Fred. I'd do a deal with Mourinho for Martial.

We were duped. I feel like an idiot right now whenever i look back. I was one of those people that overused that catchphrase “We can’t compete because we are still paying our stadium debt”.

I compare our Arsenal board of directors as a mob or as fraudters. They use wenger as their front.
OZIL is now a proper Premier League MIDFIELDER..

“It looks like Sánchez will not extend his contract,” Wenger said. “But we want to keep Jack [Wilshere] and if we have an opportunity maybe to keep [Mesut] Özil, the rebuild will be less deep than if all the three left.”

Oh wow, so it's taken him this long to realize that?

This whole issue arose because we didn't tie them up to longer-term contracts after their first season at Arsenal. That's what most clubs do. We wanted to save the extra £100k in wages and this is what's resulted.

You'd think after previous fiascos the people responsible would have learned by now, but no.

Ultimately highly unsurprising to those who—in recent years—opted to not stick their heads into the sand.

Evidently he'd verbally agreed to a new deal until the Bayern shellacking. Kind of like van persie changing his mind after the OT 2-8

If one pummeling is enough for a player to seemingly make a complete U-turn, it only adds to the likelihood of there having been a lingering doubt in the times prior.

I do think that was true though tbh, that 10-2 stuff was f***ing unreal levels of embarrassment and showed how far away we'd become by that point. Previously we'd had acceptable enough seasons with some excuses you could make for the PL whilst hoisting the FA cup high, that double header was the death of all remaining hope at this club tbh.

Yeah, I agree. There was rumours the next day about him going away to clear his head after a bust up after the game. It all makes sense now see.

It wasn't long after that all the arm waving started and the constant moaning at players for misplacing passes.
