Chelsea also took the interim tag off di Matteo, not much of a surprise.

Arsenal puts Robin Van Persie up for sale.... asking price? 30 million euros. Walcott on a verge of being sold to Chelsea...

http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/robin-van-persie-transfer-arsenal-887140

Considering that Van Persie is almost 30 years old and very injury prone, I'm not surprised in this news. Arsenal signed ST Lukas Podolski, ST Olivier Giroud, and close to finishing deal with CDM M'Vila and considering adding CAM Alan Dzagoev.

Arsenal will have a fresh spanking new team come August.

It feels like Podolski should be an old man by now. He was starring in the world cup 10 years ago.

I know right? But he's only 26.

I'm so pumped for this season. Arsenal will future one of the best squads in almost a decade.

Podolski-Van Persie-Giroud

M'Villa-Song-Wilsher

Santos-Vermaelen-Kochelny-Sagna

Complete turn around from fast years small and speedy to big and physical style. Arsenal is also trying to acquire young russian star Alan Dzagoev. I've never seen Arsenal buying so many quality players.

None of these players are true superstars. A couple nice pieces but you don't have a Ronaldo or Drogba.

Van Persie isn't a superstar?

A healthy Wilshere isn't a superstar?

You are an idiot.

Isn't that defense worrying you? Unless the plan is outscore opponents which almost never works.

Kochelny, Vermaelen and Mertesacker are all good CBs. Sagna is very good RB while Santos is an average LB. Arsenal defense was too injured last year. Starting 4 never played a single game together... M'Vila should be able to help a lot with defending, dude is a monster.

Just think of that. These three players (Podolski-Van Persie-Giroud) accounted for almost 80 goals last year. Show me any other starting trio in the world that had 80 goals combined last year... Let me help you you won't find it. M'Vila (21) and Alex Chamberlain (18) are 2 young and raising superstars. Wilsher was injured all last year but he's indeed a superstar when healthy. You don't have to be Manchester City to win trophies, you just have to have a great team.

PS: RVP > Drogba... just fyi.

Drogba has aged out but he was a stud in his day. Didn't someone post they are trying to sell RVP like 2 days ago?
