    I firmly believe it is time that we but this one to bed now. Having weighted up the entire situation, I will say our manager made a gamble that did not quite come off. He wanted a keeper to fulfil a dual purpose (a) To trigger confidence behind the sticks, even lead a solid back line and (b) to help with the present/future development of the club. His belief is that the man from Ozz would have done that. Part of the major redevelopment of Arsenal is not just looking at the now, which is like building on the sand and throwing coins at swines.

    We have failed in our judgement to credit Mr. Wenger for the rebuilding of Arsenal Football Club, yet at the same time keeping us well inside the top three of the premier league. Champions league and operating on a shoe string budget. Let us gather all his critics together and assess their credentials – with all the negative comments offered – under their administration the club would have had big stars and playing in the Championship.

    Arsene gets my Vote. We have a top man – Even the great team Barca, had a struggle to beat a weaken Arsenal last season and with all that success the Bank had to come to their rescue to meet players wages. Our failure is in not examining the firm foundations.

    I call now on Almuni to toughen up; seek to silence your critics by proving us all wrong; you have the ability now earn your stripes. Lift your head man and let that flower of belief blossom and be very courageous.

    Liverpool fan and no I am not impressed with our transfer dealings. I expect us to improve from last year still, but it will be a lot more difficult than necessary, especially if Roy Hodgson continues to use a flat 4 man midfield in spite of the fact that he has no decent wingers in his squad (instead of sensibly switching to a wing forward system with 3 central midfielders being used to press high up the field and suffocate the opposition, as previously used to great success at Chelsea or Barcelona)

    btw, Insua left Liverpool on loan rather than arriving, and if you’re going to include the likes of Threlfall in your list then you should also include the departures of El Zhar & Plessis…

    i am a Liverpool fan and i am fairly happy with our transfers.in my opinion we are better than last year.we lost an injury prone alberto aquilani,and got a very good and steady player,Raul Meireles.konchesky is surely better than insua and joe cole better than benayoun.we’ve lost one of the greatest defensive midfielders in the world,javier mascherano and bought an experienced but surely not of his calibre,christian poulsen.jovanovic as a free player is awesome.i know all liverpool fans wanted a striker in deadline day,but i wanted babel to stay,and if we could buy a striker without losing him,i’d be very happy.it’s not the end of the world,roy needs to learn his players and get them together and hopefully with a new ownership by the end of september-october,roy will have transfer money for january.but i still think the squad doesnt need an overhaul.and we also have torres,kuyt,babel,ngog as strikers and joe cole,maxi and jovanovic as wingers.would prefer a winger than a striker and a defensive midfielder cauz i’ve heard lucas might go.lassana diarra and shawn wright phillips or ashley young would be great additions.i have faith in Roy Hodgson and believe that Liverpool will take that 4th spot this season.man city are also strong contetenders and tottenham got van der vaart and gallas?wow..it’s gonna be tough and thrilling this season..Good luck to all teams and my bet is to chelsea to win the prem..malouda-drogba-anelka are a deadly trio upfront.
