£14m technician could prove a bargain

It would appear Arsenal aren’t quite as broke as we’d initially thought. The news dropping the loudest of rumbles at the moment is that we’re going in for Denis Suarez for £14m. However you feel about the player, it’s hard to disagree that he’s 1) Young (24) 2) Technically superior to Iwobi 3) Capable of hitting higher levels.

Most of his success came at Villareal in 2015-16 when he dropped his best numbers with 12 assists and 5 goals in 48 appearances. He also played under Emery in his last season at Sevilla where he racked up an impressive 5 assists, 6 goals, in 46 appearances. Also notable that he was signed by City way back when!

His numbers at Barca look, well, decidedly Iwobi-ish if I’m honest. I think he’s cut from a similar cloth. A little bit faster, but the type of player who stitches midfield and attack together with cute intricate play. I know it’s a basic, but just having someone out on the left who you can rely on to always have a good touch is where the bar is set at the moment.

He’s an upgrade. I just hope he’s not a £150k a week upgrade. Worth remembering that when he was a teenager, he was compared to players like David Silva. If he fulfils here, then we’ve unlocked a lot of potential value. (read here for an interesting scouting report).

Today we take on Blackpool in the FA Cup. I’m excited to see Saka land a heavily mooted start. I think we need to see more of these kids and they need to land pitch time. If they don’t, they might as well be out on loan. From the sounds of it, the manager is going to heavily rotate, hoping to inject some much-needed energy into the legs of players that have been drained over the past two months.

Short one today, have a great day!

    This Suarez transfer [if it happens] isn’t borne out of panic.
    There were stories in the summer that we wanted to sign him. Our Director of football has an inside knowledge about Barca and the manager has worked with the said player before.
    The player is being sought by other notable clubs including Chelsea and is young enough to still command a good fee when he’s 27-28 years old.
    This is a safe signing actually. He’s not the sexy choice for some here though.

    Don’t worry my own Nancy pelosi a local Californian will make trumps life a living hell in short time. He can run but cannot hide. An utter farce

    And yes most of the illegal criminals come in on airplanes or other ways.

    But he wants to keep his racist campaign promise

    Won’t matter though he will be finished

    Suarez is like a well rounded Ozil, who scores 2 goals and assists 3 per season on average”

    Gambino I know you not the sharpest tool in the shed..

    But surely even you barely or never starts

    He managed those numbers mainly coming off the bench

    Judging players solely on their numbers doesn’t give a clear picture of what their capable of

    Walcott always had good numbers for us but shit all round play.

    Suarez is a bargain at the price mooted for him and would clearly be an improvement to our correct options but no y not check on what he managed at Barça first then pass judgement accordingly as a know nothing internet jackass

    He was used acrossed the front line hence why he had decent numbers

    He literally asked to be a CF and the manager indulged him

    Problem is the minute the Democrats smell blood it could be far too easy to get all high and mighty.

    The other issue is Trump is a direct result of the centre parties ignoring “average” peoples opinions, if you’re worried about immigration you’re a racist etc. Nationalism is nothing to be ashamed of but when put in the hands of politicians it leads to a dark path.

    From a personal point of view I don’t think America has elected a president who wasn’t some sort of moron since Bush Senior – party politics aside.

    I just read the EU are expecting a wave of eurosceptic voting in the European elections as well.

    People are just tired of political crap and professional politicians. You should always distrust someone who actively pursues power.

    The problem I think was the pace of globalisation and the way the political elite condescended to the public, like a teacher talking to 4 year olds.

    There has been a violent surge in national identity voting and a retreat from intentional thinking.

    I don’t think that is likely to change. Combination of economic difficulties, mass immigration into developed nations and radical Islam have all combined to push people a certain way and this has been pushed further by political correctness which has now reached breaking point with scandal after scandal and absurd moral posturing.

    I think it’s all about personality now, people are looking to someone who they think can save them and who they feel represents their national interest. That is something the Democrats needs to try to steer away from, this kind of corporate, professional politicians, globalist stink.

    Trump maybe a simpleton but you need to give credit where its due

    1. Taming North Korea and its nuclear threat
    2. Pulling out of Syria ( and hopefully Afghanistan and Iraq as well going forward). All needless nothing wars, all lost.
    3. Standing up to China (and EU, Nafta). Trade is meant to be mutually beneficial. But only China and Germany seem to be perennial winners due to skewed and protected markets . China forced to make concession in new trade agreements and be more open. This will benefit the whole world not just USA.
    4. Outing the Fed as enemy of the people. Lets see how this one plays out
    5. AVOIDING NUCLEAR WAR with Russia.

    These are real achievements not to be underestimated. Silly how liberal media only focuses on the trivial.
    Obama was a nothing president and Hilary would never had achieved any of the above. Infact WW3 would have already have begun ( and ended of course ) had Hilary and deep state got their way.

    The US is no different from any other representative democracy and on’t forget that Trump didn’t win the popular vote.

    Democracy is over rated in my opinion because the “majority’ IS NOT ALWAYS RIGHT.
    I think that’s why China will dominate the next century because what we always sneered at may not be as bad. That hybrid/amalgam central control will beat the chaos that democracies can sow. Democracies depend on a well informed populace which is not always what is seems.

    There seems a lot of ignorance on all sides, entrenched positions and primacy in personality.

    Very interesting times ahead, with the Brexit deal, Merkel and Macron looking vulnerable and European elections the EU is in danger as well.

    ‘The blue wave will be rolling’

    I got to say I did laugh at the ‘blue puddle’ comments in the media though after the midterms.

    What I hate is the fact the centrist position is never represented.

    Unless this blog is full of millionaires not sure why you’d support Tories as they certainly don’t represent your best interests.

    “My friend works for the council and gets a pay increase every 6 months, is given a free day off a month and can leave work most days at 4 so works about 7 hours a day. I work for a huge private tech company and work 60 hour weeks with no automatic pay increases or pay reviews. If I had a trade union I’d be laughing.”

    Fuck me – and after saying that you still don’t get it. Councils are complaining about austerity but can allow people to fuck off when they like and give them a raise for doing so – cunts should be made to sweat blood. Secondly then why don’t you quit and get another job? Either you’re really well paid and then well it goes with the hours or you’re unemployable elsewhere.

    Be a man and quit tomorrow morning – tell your nasty boss to go fuck himself and go get a new job on more money with less hours.

    Yeah, but none of it is true, you mong.

    Your system won’t have ever produced a Trump. I don’t think there ever will be another president like Trump in the future.
    I don’t think bluster will be enough to blast through Brexit, you lot aren’t in the strongest negotiating position with the rest of the EU. It’s different from the US bullying Mexico and Canada for NAFTA.

    I’m with you completely. Anytime it’s public money there’s just rampant wastage because there’s no accountability for it.

    The problem right now obviously is the economic difficulties that have made it an employer’s market, but that will rebound, always does.

    Merkel has been brilliant for Germany guess what she isn’t a Tory or even a conservative but a centrist. (Though I am massively against letting in every asylum seeker)

    Maggie Thatcher fucked this country by selling our manufacturing industries off, Germany kept theirs and they have the strongest economy in Europe…

    May has been deceitful with British people.
    Remember ‘Brexit means Brexit’ and ‘no deal is better than a bad deal’?
    We now have her sell out, lose or independence and become a colony withdrawal agreement. No thanks
    She was the remainer trojan horse.
    No PM should behave in this duplicitous way.

    Socialism is a disease of the heart. Its the politics of envy,lazyness, dishonesty entitlement, and expecting others to pay for lifestyle choices.
    If you want more money, ask the almighty, do better at school and go and work for it.
    Plenty of jobs out there for those that can be bothered.
    Gordon Brown killed UK productivity with his re distributive benefits, Tories haven’t fixed that and the WA with EU will give us no room for manoeuvre on things like this so I will take my chances with Corbyn as he seems a better human and Eurosceptic than May.

    Hear hear

    All while they half our bin collections, fine us if we don’t put shit in the correct boxes for them all while increasing council tax.

    Don’t get me started on the roads

    You know they refuse to give out basic information on the phone now?? It’s on the website. I said yes but I have you in the phone. Can you tell me the maximum permitted height for sheds.

    It’s on the website sir…..
    Wtf?? What am I paying you cunts for??? Not the bins. Not the roads. Not basic council information.

    Maggie Thatcher fucked this country by selling our manufacturing industries off, Germany kept theirs and they have the strongest economy in Europe…

    She sold off mines that were costing money to keep open they were a black hole.
    The world was changing.

    The EU fucked our industries as well as most of the rest of Europe so they could centralise everything.

  91. Hitman

    Good point CA.
    You are right she’s a goner what ever happens.
    Just hope she doesn’t mess things up too much before she leaves.

    Corbyn is the better human out of the two despite his misguided marxist beliefs.

    Denis Suarez is such an underwhelming signing but I guess that’s where we are as a club at this stage. Pretty much irrelevant.

    Brexit came about for many different reasons but the primary reason was that the people had had enough of the way the country was being run.

    Our own self consumed lily-livered leaders had sold the country out. Blair/Brown/ Cameron and now May, all to blame and all totally clueless.

    Europe were dictating the terms and we just sat back and let them get away with it.

    Imo, it has to be a no deal.

  95. Nelson

    Well, back to football.
    I would think that if the owner wants to finance the team, there is always a way to beat the FFP. How about we sign up Walmart as our sponsor for all our consumable need. In any case, it is reported that Kroenke hasn’t invest a single penny in the team. The fans have to do something about this.

  96. Graham62

    Why do you think people travel through Europe to try and come here?

    Too tolerant and a soft touch.

    That’s what the UK has become.

    I echo your thoughts too.

    We really have become a soulless, colourless club- run by 2 non descript Spaniards
    And a distant owner.
    Year on year favourite players are readilly sold mid season

    We sell our favs to our rivals
    Ox
    Giroud
    Theo
    Sanchez
    Etc

    I think gifting Rambo to Juve will be the final straw for many fans.
    Where s our identity?
    Half the players names, now – I cannot even pronounce.

    We have to get some old Arsenal players in and around the club..
    Bit like Bayern do …
    I honestly can see us having a disastrous Jan
    And the whole pack of cards falling down..
    Emery to me – smacks of mediocrity.

    There had been warning signs for many years…
    The tori’s had to put it in their manifesto to quieten the UKIP in their party ,,,

    Cameron acted shockingly when they lost walking off whistling,,,

    It was coming now they are fighting tooth n nail to stop it….

    To late if anything changes democracy is dead riots will commence and nothing preserved is sacred ,,, imo

    Rule the revolution.. it may rid us of the royals which burden an bleed the country .

    Trump knows a lot about universities

    In fact knows so much his failed miserably and he got sued by students where he had to pay back millions on millions

    The piece of shit is a scam artist racist who is only who he is because of daddy’s money.

    60m voted for him. Less than what voted for Hilary.

    And Less than 1/5th is the population of the USA

    Yeah he really is the people’s choice

    Only made it in because of republican Gerrymandering which some of have already been turned around in court.

    Trump is on for a wreckoning in the next 2 years

    Either impeached or jailed.

    Or getting a huge smack down by the voters just like the mid-terms

    He left Syria v all the advice of his advisors and people who should Be making those decisions

    The economy was already on the up with obama. And economist are already worried about it for 2019.

    He’s done fuck all for the border.

    He’s laughed at by all world leaders who are just making trade deals without the USA.

    The world is moving towards a complete global economy and idiots like trump and brexiteers are pushing nationalism.

    Idiot trump ran on bring back coal. Fool. And they believed him.

    He’s a joke.

  101. Joe

    Red exactly

    I’ll bet majority of who voted for brexit did it for immigration only. Thinking it was all about keeping everyone out.

    That’s why is the not googled thing after. People were scrambling to figure out what they had voted for.

    Just like trump, a big majority of voters have regret and would change their vote
