Toby Alderweireld


#21

Not that high on Manolas, has the technique of Gabriel and the discipline of Mustafi.


#22

Chelsea it is then


#23

C’mon Toby! You can become a legend here like Sol :ozil2:


#24

This already has spurs fans rustled, DO IT ARSENE :mkhi:


#25

Why would he leave spurs to join us?
They are doing well in the CL.
They have a great manager.
They are moving into a new stadium.
He is playing alongside other great players.
They have an owner who is ambitious and who is a spurs supporter.
They have a well organised team who are going places.

We have the opposite to all these.


#26

I’ll pass, not keen on adding another 29 year old to the squad when our recent problems at the back have been the decline of our most consistent defenders in Koscielny, Mertesacker & Monreal.


#27

Blimey, I honestly didn’t realise he was 29! Thought he was younger. It will probably happen now won’t it?


#28

He’s 28, but yeah he’ll be 29 by the summer.

He’s still one of the top defenders in the league though. Spurs were a better team when he came back from injury. And if the buy out clause is correct - well £25m is nothing. I’d take him – upsetting the Spurs fans will be a bonus :grin:


#29

No , No , No .
Anyone who wears chicken badge is not welcome. Not better than our noble defenders and old like a bent pygmy with
a bush cockatoo on head. Sister Dongo will weep as the rainy season if he wears our proud cannon.
My friends we must have better to progress .


#30

Money talk. We can be shittier than them, but still richer than them.


#31

Cause they are spurs and it will take a lonnng time of this shit happening before they become a bigger club than us. The Spurs exodus is only beginning my friend…


#32

Should take Eriksen as well, right @Cristo?


#33

OH FUCK YEAH!!!

Eriksen, Mkhi and Ozil with Auba up front?!?!?! Holy shit.

Plus we’d have a world class free-kick taker in our squad for the first time in years.


#34

Still lose to Swansea away :wink:


#35

Other than Sol who’s the last former spud that ended up playing for Arsenal?

Also I think if the release clause is true and we try to activate it they’ll basically tell us to get fucked the same way pool did.


#36

Pat Jennings?


#37

Glad we didn’t take that mentality back in the middle of 2001, or no double in 2002 would have happened nor the unbeaten 2003/2004 season.


#38

Think you are right but bizarrely we also signed Willie Young and Steve Walford from the spuds in 1977 too. Weird!!

Edit: it’s actually probably not that weird considering we’d got Terry Neill in from there the year previous so he obviously knew a lot about those players.


#39

When the product on the pitch is dogshit, we can always rely on transfer madness to save us
