On another note, Tottenham's return of 4 points from 9 is somewhat surprising seeing how good they have been the past 2 seasons! Wembley hoodoo? Who knows...
I dont like the bigger stadiums, theres a fine line that has to be well balanced in order to get great atmosphere and for players to adapt to the bigger surroundings. West Ham are suffering the same problem, its no coincidence that Spurs are showing signs of struggling with it as well. White Hart Lane and Upton Park were much more intimidating for the opposition.
Hahaha! Looks like they may just hold onto Sanchez by the skin of their teeth. Lemar has apparently turned them down, which means move for Sanchez to Man City. We'll see what's gone down in the morning, no doubt, anyway!
Liverpool have done well with the Ox signing, I think. He always seemed on the cusp of becoming a very good player and this may just be the move that sees that happen. Still very young, too.
Ox has no end product. 9 goals in what was it? 150 games? Not that great for a winger. Getting £40m for him, on the last year of his contract is unreal business by Arsenal.
Yeah, I agree he hasn't performed or developed as expected in the past few seasons but there is talent there and I think he'll improve at Liverpool. A lot depends on where and how much he plays, though. A good price as his contract is nearly up, but I'd love to see how that fee looks in 5 years time.
Also, £40m or the £35m that's being quoted seems to be a standard fee now, Danny Drinkwater is valued at that at present.
Either way, Arsenal should be bringing in players and creating a stronger squad at this time, everyone is looking to jump ship by the looks of it.
