Arsene Wenger will not be signing another striker after the departure of Robin van Persie as he states that Giroud and Podolski were brought in with the possible departure of van Persie well in mind. The French manager has however, been in talks with Newcastle about the acquisition of Tiote as a replacement for the Barcelona-bound Song.

I reckon that Malky really is a huge
Watford fan. Apparently he fancies
signing Martin, or is it Martyn, Taylor.
Is the lad any good, please, Hornets?

Believable0 Unbelievable1

Taylor is a good solid CB , but we wont let him go . As for Malky , tell him he can take Garner off our hands though if he wants .

so arsenal fans you have to admit that van persie carried your team last yr after seeing most of your big names leaving so can u blame him for wanting to go song next! id blame arsen wenger for letting nasri, rvd, wallcott an co.. contracts run into final yr which then puts the players in even more control!

Reports today saying Southampton are bidding 6 mil for Matty Phillips of Blackpool. Blackpool need to hold out for more as money of the transfer will go to Wycombe because of a clause in his contract as well as Karl Oyston, the player and his agent. Blackpool need to hold out for 10 mil and then think about selling his and reinvesting the money they get in a 3 mil striker and 2 mil centre back

Believable6 Unbelievable6

Your funny ... matty my go for around 5/6 million ... blackpool holding out for 10.. your getting more funny .. but the best was for the end .. 3 million on a striker and 2 million on a defender.. if we sell phillips the money goes straight into the oystons treasure chest...
