BENZEMA TO ARSENAL?

by .

Well, it is very, very cold where I am. -20 outside. This is going to be one of those ‘should I have upgraded the furnace’ kind of weeks. I’m cold people. Hopes and prayers, please.

I tell you what is HAAAAWT. The ITK crowd is now saying that Ivan Toney is the choice of the club this summer, not a new narrative if you’ve been following Le Grove.

This makes sense for a number of reasons, the main one being that we can get him for about £60m this summer and free up cash to do some surgery elsewhere. The idea of raiding Serie A for £120m for Oshimen was always fanciful. Like it or not, Arteta sees Ivan Toney as the missing ingredient up top.

Personally, I agree. It’s been a long time since we’ve had a striker with that sort of aura. Maybe you have to go back to Adebayor for pure fear factor? Toney is great from setpieces, he’s a menace in the box, defenders hate playing against him, and if he can score 21 goals for Brentford, imagine what he’ll do in the Arsenal chances creation paradise?

We’re great at corners, we have a keeper that has a very successful past with him, the team is loaded with fast switch players that can pick out a dime from 50 yards. He’ll add something we haven’t had in our forwards since Giroud left for Chelsea.

He has an edge.

The biggest weakness of the signing is he is a NOW player. There is no sell-on clause. This is his last big deal. The positives are that he knows the league, he’s been to hell and back, and he’s absolutely desperate to prove that he is at the level.

This isn’t a sexy signing, but it could be very functional in a way that might surprise. Like a wallet you stick on the back of your phone. I’ve never done it, but I’d like to.

It could also go the other way and the level might be too high. He might not be able to live in a deepblock world. The weight of the shirt might hang too heavy on him.

I like the thinking though. You can scoff at it, but who else is out there that you could name as a better player? Not many. If an endangered species were in the footballing world, it’d be elite number 9s.

Talking about elite number 9s, Saudi Arabian football is going through its first mini-crisis. A haul of players are trying to exit at the moment because they don’t like it. Karim Benzema has no-showed to training a number of times this year, which could mean there’s a chance to loan move out to a team playing Porto in the next round of the Champions League.

Could that be Arsenal?

Could a player of his level be useful?

Is this the move that wins us the Premier League?

Probably not.

It’s one of those fanciful dreams you have when you play too much FIFA. The player is an outrageous talent, but he’s quite old now. 36 years old is a physical reality you have to face. Not many strikers in the Premier League are doing it at that age. He might do it in Italy, but in a team that needs everyone pressing at 100mph, I can’t see him working in our system. Even at 28, I’m not sure he was that player.

Always take your mind back to United finishing 2nd, then signing Cristiano, upsetting all the young players, then finishing outside the top 5. These old player loans are for the nostalgists. I don’t think we’ll be making a move like that.

Though it would be sexy… I remember being linked to Benzema before he moved to Madrid. What a player. One of the greats.

Let’s talk about Oscar Bobb scoring that incredible goal yesterday. It was a delicious ball from KDB, an outrageous touch and finish by an academy kid. Some Arsenal fans said it showed that we should be doing more to integrate kids.

My take? Look at what City do with their academy. It’s kind of genius in a very rich way.

They go out and find the best kids at every level. They pay them more than anyone else. So these kids earn elite money before they’re near the first team. They then give them the full Pep G coaching experience (via surrogates). These kids are trained to think faster and their depth of tactical knowledge combined with their talent makes the best prospects in the world to pick off.

They then mine them for the cream of the crop, like Oscar Bobb, who is already a full Norwegian international. This approach gives them a bank of luxury kids to sell on to the clubs that have the capacity to blood them young… and sell them they do. They’ve made over £263m since 2017 using this approach. James Trafford move to Burnley for £20m, wild money,  we won’t get that for Reiss Nelson.

If we’re going to be honest, this isn’t a new idea, this is exactly what Arsene Wenger did when he was at Arsneal. We paid elite kids more to come to Arsenal than any other club. I can’t remember which Liveprool manager complained, but one said they competed with Arsenal for Denislon but couldn’t match the package. This approach gave us Cesc Fabregas and helped us form Project Youth 1.0. Wenger used to brag that he’d given more professional careers to kids than any other manager.

City do this on steroids and rocket boosters and it’s working to a higher level. City sell a player for £18m, then Chelsea buy them for £58m. Jeremie Frimpong went to Celtic for £400k, to Leverkusen for £4m, and he might boomerang back to be reunited with Arteta for £40m. The production line is insane.

So when you’re kicking Arsenal for not being more like City, know what you’re kicking. One of the most ruthless operations football has every seen, doing things at the next level, with extreme financial power.

Pedro, I’ve lived in a part of the country with those kind of temperatures. Just stay , keep the heat up, and wait for it to pass.

I keep wondering if Cuna at Wolves might be a solution?

I’m really concerned about Toney’s temperament with the betting scandal. It took years to get rid of players with the wrong character. Do we need to sign more now?

That rumour is so 2012 though. One of the biggest things I’ll always blame for Wenger for, and he has no excuses for it, was that the French National team was one of the best, if not the best, national teams in the world, yet he stopped bringing top talents from France. How did he not bring any top, top French player in the back end of his ruling? His French transfers were the likes of Lacazette, Giroud (with all due respect), Chamakh, Debuchy, Sanogo. And his non-French transfers were Xhaka, Mustafi, Podolski, Chambers, Welbeck, Gab Paulista, Elneny, Chambo, Arteta,… Read more »

I’ll tell you what’s not HAWT – Toney’s non-penalty goal stats and gambling addiction.

We need to do better as a club than betting on Toney to be the guy to get us the title. It’s absurd and makes me wonder what the hell has happened with our scouting. It seems we have two criteria these days – English and PL-proven. Feels more suitable for Everton tbh.

Benzema has to be a joke right? On a sporting level there’s no way he’d cut it in our system in the prem. Nevermind that he’s an utter cunt of human with the whole Valbuena bribery scandal he was convicted of. You want that near our club? Not excited by Toney at all but needs must I suppose but at £50m or so and not the ridiculous £100m being banded about.

The US-based site I mentioned on the last post also offers both gifted memberships (by paid members) and hardship memberships (by application).

They moved to the paid membership system about six months after announcing it– allowing everyone to either register, gift, or apply (for hardship).

While I’m not privy to actual numbers, it seemed as if the system was well thought out. The fear of losing regular commenters didn’t materialize. And those who just wanted to read comments did so with ads, but an inability to comment.

Been a successful model for a site I’d estimate parallels LG for traffic.

Jesus and Richarlison, with similar amount of minutes played in the PL – 940 to 1010: Jesus has directly influenced 2 games – 1G + 1A vs Luton, and 1G vs Brighton. His goal vs Manure made no difference as it was the last kick of the game and we were already winning. Richarlison – 2G vs Newcastle, 1G vs Forest, 1G vs Bournemouth, 1G vs Manure, 1G + 1A vs Sheffield Utd, 1A vs Liverpool, 1A vs Fulham. Jesus has directly helped us win 6 PTS.

CG, and that’s with their player of the season out for half the campaign – 10/21 games missed so far. Imagine if Maddison was healthy.

@CG “Meanwhile Bloom and Brighton HA snare another prodigious latin talent for peanuts- whilst Edu is nowhere to be seen.” That is a bit of a conundrum as well as pointing to our recruiting dilemma. Bloom has developed that software that evaluates players style and abilities. There may be 1 other individual at the club that has access to it. They use a traffic tight system with Green being on a list to bring in. Yellow put on a hold list for further evaluation and red, forget it. The effectiveness shows when they sold Cucurella and brought in Estupinan. Arsenal… Read more »

Some may try and brainwash others – but a good experienced manager at a top club should make an impression on his new side within 6 WEEKS.

Toney is not the move. He’s average. Literally average. Anyone saying we should wait ‘until the summer’ transfer window should also be saying we should wait until ‘someone good’ comes along. Dropping 60m on him is madness. Buying a winger at that price would fetch us someone we could do something with, help get more goals from elsewhere and give Saka a break. For 60m we could buy 4 Brazilian kids, hope one makes it and we punt out the other 3 for at least what we paid. Boniface/Zirkzee, seen neither play, get a good rep here and would at… Read more »

Toney is a terrible idea, and born out of frustration and impatience at not getting a top drawer striker, which he isn’t. Too old, he would be a stopgap. But most of all, i can’t see how Arteta would make it work with the existing team and style of play. That’s why it is desperate. The only question, as Jess rightly says, is ‘does it raise us up to another level?’ – No, it does not. Arteta would flap around, like he does with Havertz, trying to fit him in.

Get Jesus, ESR, Ramsdale, Nelson, maybe Havertz sold and that should cover his wages easily. Then promote from our youth to cover those positions.

Yeah Benzema would be a disaster and I say that as somebody that loved him as a player. He semi-mentally checked out after that Ballon D’or season and he’s completely checked out now in Saudi.

Superb player still but his legs are gone and his ego wouldn’t be able to fit in the Emirates, hard pass.

Insane that we need another what 5/6 players or something like that I saw afyer spending what we have under the current regime, points to some very poor recruitment if you ask me.

Absolutely no to Benzema too by the way, he’s been checked out for a while now

Emiratesstroller

There are realistically 5 teams competing for a top 4 finish and a place in Champions League next season. Whilst we are still in the frame for the League Title I think that it will be more difficult for us to compete there, because of our current commitments in CL Midweek. Arsenal have a decent squad on paper, but a combination of long term injuries plus loss of form most notably in attack have realistically diminished the likelihood of that happening. I suspect also that Arsenal are not going make significant investments in our squad in January despite all the… Read more »

“TRANSFERS: Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise prefers a move to Arsenal over Manchester United. (Per @EveningStandard)

Palace will reportedly demand £40m for Olise, but the Gunners could possibly have an edge in the deal with the Eagles wanting striker Eddie Nketiah. Could be a move that helps both parties. 🇫🇷 #AFC #cpfc #Transfers”

Yes please. Sell Nelson too and get in Zirkzee. Both Eddie and Reiss being homegrown should save us from ffp trouble.

Forget about Toney, we shouldn’t be paying 60m+ for an average 27 year old that mostly scores penalties.

The one I’d go all out for in the summer is Rafa Leao. The striker market isn’t exactly flush with talent but if you’re breaking the bank for an attacking player then surely it’s one waiting that’s about to explode

I can’t understand why we don’t use swap of wingers. The obsession with cutting inside by getting players to man the wing with their wrong foot is overdone

Good old fashioned real wing play wouldn’t hurt esp against a deep block

Saka was great when he played that season on LW

I’d have them swapping once or twice a game esp if the full back is getting the better of one or both of them

That and Jesus being pushed over to one or both wings and maybe bring Tierney back for some good old fashioned overlapping FB stuff to link with LW

I’m not an arsenal fan. Add that to my little list of horse shit received from nobodies on Le grove

Or…. Fucking utilise ESR ad what he can bring and add someone who scores goals WHILE occupying defenders
I truly believe Havertz can be that guy
His only a couple of tap ins away from unleashing the streak

Yeah, I’m a big ESR fan too.
Maybe the club are being gentle with him and were looking at this break as a real opportunity to integrate him more.
Really hope so, of all the young players that came along he was the one for me who looked top drawer. Attributes like the timing of arrival into the box with a one touch finish mark him out as a matchwinner not to mention is ball carrying abilities.

It feels like gane management suicide leaving him on the bench for 88 minutes.

I like Smith Rowe, no reason he can’t get over his issues after surgery last season. But he’s started just 1 PL game since May 2022, and that put him out for another 4-5 weeks. If his playing time doesn’t improve soon, then he’ll need to leave for the sake of his own career. He’s 24 next summer, and has 7,000 minutes as a professional. To put that into context, we signed Rice at 24 with 24,000 minutes for club + country, Havertz at 24 with 23,000 minutes.

I’m generally cautious around wingers with significant previous injury history. It’s a physically demanding role that requires lots of intensive sprints, and our wide players tend to get kicked around a lot. Pedro Neto is absolutely electric, brilliant footballer who can play on both sides, also seen him play as a No8 once, and he was brilliant there as well.

It would be a disaster, he would never be able to make the transition; he would be Arsenal’s Ronaldo moment; I can understand why people would want that but he is just not making that physical step up at this point!

Olise is a better option than Neto and can play the role Jesus does much better, including goals.

Oihan Sancet would be a better addition in midfield than Zubimendi.

Graham62, Postecoglou making top four in his first season would be disastrous for our trajectory experts’ cred.
And if both he and Emery do it, this blog might have to close its doors and not for financial reasons.

Real winning trophies in nothing new, that club is a magnet for elite talent and even Bayern has difficulty holding on to their star players when Real enter the picture.
Don Carlo is great at managing elite talent, not so much otherwise.

If there is any way on earth to bring in Olise do it

Signing Neto is like signing Zinchenko to cover Tierney – we went from one crock to 2 crocks covering LB (3 if you include Timber as well!)
