football summer transfers/speculation

so we're in between seasons now, with la liga coming to an exciting climax on sunday.

really looking forward to watching beckham's last match with real, and i hope they finally win a title.

but other than that, summer means buying and selling.

word has it that wenger is trying to sell henry to barca for 20 million pounds.

what's the deal with arsenal anyway? why can't they keep players? didn't fabregas just say that he wanted out?

and everyone remembers cashley cole and reyes from last year. brutal. it would be an honour to play for arsene. brilliant coach.

of all the 'big four' teams, arsenal are definitely the most vunerable to lose their spot in that elite group. and for the sake of competitive football in the premiership, i hope they do crash and burn. I can see thierry henry playing in a barcelona shirt next season. But if barca do sign him it would probably mean either eto'o or ronaldinho leaving...

the thing is wenger's gonna be around for at least one more season. i thought that would be key in keeping players happy...

Henry has the chance here to play for one of the worlds great clubs. and let's be honest, he probably has a greater chance there to win trophies than at arsenal. Also he will be 30 when the season starts and he may not want to wait another year incase it's too late.

Wenger is his mentor and almost like a father figure but even that would probably not stop him from wanting to take this chance to join barca. thats my view anyway...

pressure from fans maybe? pressure from the board or manager? maybe at the time he felt comfortable but at times this season arsenal have been poor and that probably hasn't gone unnoticed. im just speculating here but i think if there was ever a time that henry would leave then it will be this summer.

no kidding...
up until today i never really believed it'd happen.
it sucks.
what's happening in arsenal is a terrible shame.

and for 18 million??? didn't manyoo spend more on carrick last summer?

i swear these transfers are getting worse and worse...

He has written a letter to the papers explaining why he left saying that by the end of next season he will be 31 and he could not risk being there and Wenger leaving.......

...to me that sounds like Arsene may be going at the end of next season...Arsenal's death knell? I could certainly see Tottenham taking the 4th Champions League berth next time round.

Hate to say i told you so

Perhaps we can really see some other clubs challenging for 4th place in the prem next year. That would be a great thing to happen.

well, i wasn't going to say anything.....

The likes of spurs, villa, newcastle all have the facilities, fanbases, money and managers to challenge for a top 4 place. Now with arsenal looking vunerable and liverpool stuttering in the transfer market and apparently at odds with their owner there's hope that the monotony of the 'big 4' can be broken.

Spurs to take Arsenal's fourth spot next season....Villa I don't think will be able to push that high next season, but definitely Uefa cup this time round. Newcastle I still think need more work done on the squad.

auch

honestly what is real madrid doing? firing capello after ONE year into his contract, the first season in which they won the league in what... 4 years?

their biggest problem has been stability in the last few years, and now they finally had a coach who played a solid system.

idiots. calderon especially.

Well chuffed at this Bent deal...that's 2.6 mil for us at least.

Hopefully Jeffers is on his way...
