Nasri Stalling / Wenger’s Summer Checklist

I know we have been hearing alot of news around North London. Wenger’s busy transfer window has started by picking up 2 youngsters from Barcelona ( that will do it !). Benzema to Arsenal, Nasri to United, ohh what’s next…

I have heard that Nasri has been offered a deal near 90000 pounds/week and he is stalling on it. Firstly, I believe that Nasri wants to sign with the club but the only reason he is stalling is because of his agent. Nobody would mind a few extra bucks and Sam is quite astute in this case. As for Clichy, he has already rejected one deal and there have been no quotes from him. It’s down to Wenger whether he should stay or not.

Personally, I want both players to stay. However if Clichy demands an unrealistic wage demand we should let him leave. Fetch what we can get from him, and buy Baines. A guy who can even play on the left wing, and LB will be a very intelligent signing.

It’s quite funny when you see what the manager said after the last match at Fulham. He said that they should be allowed to work and the fans will see the changes when the club returns after the summer. I am quite sure the club is already looking into certain situations like membership renewals and transfer targets. But logically, I think we are going to start to see something only after the ticket renewal deadline is over. The club can then see how much they have earned and forward the amount to Wenger to spend.

For me Wenger has a method of doing things, and by things I basically mean signings. The man never gives anything away that easily. First, if you ask him anything about the issue he will say he has no idea. Then on subsequent questions (probably when the matter has become serious internally) he will say that the player is ‘interesting.’ Then stage 3. This may or may not happen. The transfer target may express his interest in joining Arsenal. And then either the target will fly to London or be announced as a signing soon (probably a press conference shall be called.)

The contract situation, in my opinion has to be sorted out fast. Then we can probably start off-loading although this is a very slow and gradual process. During the offloading phase I hope that the club starts to sign defenders. There have been many rumours around the world but a majority of them are bull.

I hope Wenger has had his checklist made for things to do in the summer. If he knows how to use the internet, I hope he reads this one incase he has missed out anything :

  1. Sort out Contract issues over Nasri and Clichy.
  2. Find buyers for Denilson, Squillaci, Nikko and maybe (if you get a good one) Eboue.
  3. Have a talk with Cesc regarding his future in the club.
  4. Sign a defender (probably  a CB), and may be Baines.
  5. Get a new suit/tie. **

    nasri, and clichy can fuck of as far as im concerened. For to long we have had players thinking they are to good for Arsenal, anthe same cycyle repeats in year in year out. maybe wenger hsould buy some experinced players out, to help the likes of nasri and the like/ To be honest I cant blame nasri, his probably waiting to sewho wenger signs. I dont mean when wenger signs players as in 16 yera old kids, or some french dude from the french league that nobody has heard of, because thats really helped arsenal over the past 7 years hasnt it. Wenger you dpull your finger out.

      @Shadrak u r right Nasri,RvP,Wilshere & Szyzney were the only players who seem serious bt got disappointment by others, 2nd Wenger will not bring any of the mentioned,he used the same old trick to lure funs to buy c’son ticket b4 we don’t need bains we have Gibson blah blah.

    If Glichy demands what the club not willing to pay, and started making probs, let him go, The club dont need any players who cause problems to the club and team’s concentration whether he is key player or not. LB is good enough to succeed him

      Why pay this guys peanut & expect good service frm them.Any quality stuff deserves hefty pay.This is wrong for funs to attack Clichy while they know the guy will not be part of gunners at the age of 28 b4 they dumped him just like they did to Kanu,Viera,Wiltord & Pires despite their dedication & lower wages they get. Arsenal shuld stop being mean & pay for a good quality service b4 they question credibility of this player.

        true, Clichy is a world class player.why do you think are major clubs like Man u, Man C, Inter,Bayern munich are interested in him ?? Only replacement for Gael Clichy is Fabio Coentrao :(.He is worth every dollar hes demanding,pay him.Please keep him,nasri and arshavin. And buy hazard and Jan verthonghen or Mertesacker or both.

      Guys am die hard Arsenal fun bt truth be told if Clichy don’t deserve to put on red n white famours shirt, then we don’t even deserve to be top 10 as a team in epl table.. Judging by what we pay this guys, i think even Westham pays better than we are and we expect Arsenal to win major trophies.If you want good service delivery you have pay real good dear. Kudos to all our players who earns peanuts bt fight to put Arsenal where we are today where liverpool,Spuds fail despite their well paid expensive player.

        Peanuts? Are you fucking kidding me, Footballers are the highest paid people in sport the wages they get are ridiculous. Think what you can do with $75,000 a week or whatever it is. True, the more you pay generally the better the player but peanuts!? They don’t know how lucky they are and clearly you don’t either.

    why does everyone want eboue gone? .. he’s the most versatile player we have .. i dont know who can replace him and cover all the positions he does, while remaining happy on the bench and helping to keep the squads morale up

    • Andre

      just because a player is versatile dosnt mean he should stay, he is not good enough full-stop and with the injuries we get he ends up playing half the games during the season. it frustrates every Arsenal fan seeing his and others who arn’t good enough being on the first team sheet and then not having a bad game but making a mistakes which cost us goals and games.

      Eboue’s versatility
      -RB/RWB. used to be one of the best but dosnt play there any more (i dont know why)
      -RM. waist to many chances and gets owned by good PL RB’s
      -AM cant shoot or link up play

    @Puke…..think b4 what u say….Sagna and Persie have been the two most consistent players for our club this whole season….and it should also be noted that Sagna is the only player who went through the season Injury free…By far the tuffest character in the team !!!
    Although….i seriously want Fabregas to go…as he breaking the concentration and morale of the whole team.I mean think what effect would such player have who being Captain of the team is regularly being linked to Barca….either he should come out in Press and clearly state that he want’s to stay in Arsenal or walk off still being an Arsenal Legend !!!
    I have a feeling this summer its going to get dirty on this issue !

    It’s confirmed wenger is using gael clichy as a sweetner for fabio coentrao and has bid 14m for matt hummels way to go wenger.

      Bro,, if thats the case then wenger should sell gibbs the guy is slow. Wingbacks must be quick Like Gael clichy,clichy is young too. Fabio Coentrao has been my dream signing 🙁 !! Fuck evra and rafael and ashley cole we will outclass them from every manner!!!!

    Defensive coach rather than a tactical coach.
    We need defenders that actually get in the right position and head the ball not tug and obstruct the oppos.

  12. Babs

    May 29, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    If clichy is going let him go but we need to look for a good replacement for him.

  16. Andre

    May 30, 2011 at 12:56 am

    Im sorry but all this let Clichy go and bring in Baines nonsense is getting to me. So all you Arsenal fans want to swap one of the top 3 LB in the league, who knows our team and previous to last season has been one of our most consistent performers since the departure of Cashley Cole. for a left back who is yes is a very good player but would cost us more then we will sell Clichy for, will have to fit in to our system and in my opinion (even though i am a big fan of his) isnt as good as Clichy.

    Sorry but you guys make me laugh complaining all the time then wanting us to spend money Weakening the side for the new season.

    and please stop commenting saying players like Nasri and Clichy want more Money when TBH you dont know. they havent come out saying they want more, no agent has come out saying they wants more not even a credible news paper has come out saying they want more. cntracts are a lot more complicated then just a weekly wage however they negotiate there contract however long it takes has nothing to do with you!!!

    Barcelona has just raised the bar, no serious minded manager will settle for average it`s got to be top drawer. That doesn`t mean eleven 50 million pound players but it does mean careful selection and ,within reason, money should not be the criteria providing it`s within our means.
