What Are We Going To See From Arsenal?


Yes, they have been one of the busiest clubs on the final day of the transfer window. But the question is, are the new Gunners capable of bringing back the glory days to the Emirates? Or are they just going to be a bunch of flops?

Raul Meireles to Chelsea FC


In a stunning last 30 minutes of the summer transfer window, Raul Meireles submitted a transfer request to Liverpool and conjured up a move to Chelsea FC.

It’s becoming a bit of a habit, ain’t it? Liverpool FC players joining Chelsea. First it was Benayoun, then there was Fernando Torres, and now there is Meireles. The fact remains that Benayoun and Fernando Torres haven’t left their mark on the club at all. Benayoun leaving for Arsenal is testament to that, tossing him out and bringing Meireles to essentially replace him.

Joe Cole, OUT (albeit on loan). Christian Poulsen, OUT. Milan Jovanovic, OUT. Konchesky, OUT. Raul Meireles, OUT. Personally, I never thought that Meireles would have been leaving on transfer deadline day,despite the fact that we had enough men for cover in central midfield.

Unlike Fernando Torres ….

Arsenal + Manchester City = Liverpool?


Well Liverpool have been one of the busier clubs in the transfer market so far, having captured the signature of Jordan Henderson from Sunderland and also many more linked with moves to Anfield. Suddenly, some sort of an equation seemed to have came across my mind,

 

ARSENAL + MANCHESTER CITY = LIVERPOOL

As we all know, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has a secret obsession in signing unknown youngsters. It’s not a bad technique to be honest, as youngsters are the ones of the next generation and the current football stars are to retire someday later. But apart from Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey, the other young Gunners have pretty much failed to make any significant impacts last season.

Lately, Arsene Wenger has once again stepped up to his ability in signing youngsters – completing the transfer of Finland Under-19 defender Carl Jenkinson from Charlton Athletic. Oh well, Arsenal were forced to end their disappointing season empty-handed for the sixth consecutive year. But will the young Gunners actually bring glory to Arsene Wenger in the future?

 

And now we move on to Manchester City, the world’s biggest spenders. With spirits at an all-time high in the blue half of Manchester following their impressive FA Cup victory and also qualification into the prestigious UEFA Champions League, the club’s wealthy owner, Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, could once again be tempted to splash the cash during the transfer window as they look to make inroads on both the domestic and continental fronts.

Manchester City are like spending money as if they’re toilet papers. They’ve already soared to a massive £650 million – which is quite insane. And guess what? They’re still hoping to increase the number! The likes of Marek Hamsik, Edinson Cavani, Ezequiel Lavezzi, Gregory Van der Wiel, Alexis Sanchez and even Cristiano Ronaldo have all been on City’s radar. Well at least they’ve managed to finish 4th in the Barclays Premier League, a fairly good placing.

Which of course brings me back to this equation. Okay, Arsene Wenger has an obsession in signing youngsters – but at least he doesn’t overspend the money. And Manchester City of course, are famous in spending the cash – on quality players and not youngsters. Therefore,

Arsenal = Sign too many youngsters

Manchester City = Spend too much money

Most of all, what surprises me is that Liverpool have been very interested in youngsters – AND ALSO OVERPAYING! For example, Andy Carroll (the man who ultimately cost Liverpool a massive £35 million) is only aged 22 and he’s only managed a very limited 2 goals so far for the Reds, which is very disappointing. The transfer actually made Andy Carroll the eighth overall most expensive footballer and the most expensive British footballer of all time, but does he play like one – that’s a completely different story. And recently, Liverpool have just completed the signing of former Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson for an undisclosed fee of approximately £20 million, which I believe they’ve also overpaid it. And to support the equation, Jordan Henderson is too a youngster (only 21 years of age). Furthermore, if we take a look at Liverpool’s shortlist in the transfer market, they’ve pretty much been monitoring the youngsters (Bojan Krkic, Phil Jones, Eden Hazard and Connor Wickham)! And I have a bad feeling that Kenny Dalglish will once again overpay in order to win their signature.

So when on earth did Liverpool turn into a combined Arsenal and Manchester City?

Liverpool’s Possible Lineups Next Season


Liverpool are to kickstart the next season by hosting Sunderland in their opening match. With Jordan Henderson the only signing Kenny Dalglish has managed to complete so far, we could be seeing the likes of Stewart Downing, Eden Hazard or Bojan Krkic at Anfield by the end of the transfer window.

In this post, we will be checking out Kenny Dalglish’s possible lineups next season.

1. If Eden Hazard arrives

It’s hard to say where Eden Hazard will end up at the end of the transfer window. With top European clubs like Arsenal, Barcelona and Manchester United all having developed major interests on the Lille youngster, Kenny Dalglish will definitely have to face a big competition if he is to win Eden Hazard’s signature.

Nonetheless, the arrival of Eden Hazard will definitely put a broad smile on the faces of all the Liverpool fans (which includes me of course!). A speedy winger with wonderful skills and abilities to go past defenders in just a blink of an eye, I wouldn’t be surprised if I see Eden Hazard dominate the world of football after the likes of Xavi, Steven Gerrard or Cristiano Ronaldo have retired.

Here’s the lineup we might see if Eden Hazard happens to sign for Liverpool.


2. If Bojan arrives

It’ll be a big signing, and I believe the chances of seeing Bojan Krkic at Liverpool is actually higher than Eden Hazard’s as the Spanish international has pretty much fallen out of favour at the fantastic Barcelona starting 11 due to the likes of David Villa, Lionel Messi and Pedro. Bojan famously made his Barcelona debut at the age of just 17 (back in 16 September 2007) when he came on to replace former Barcelona winger Giovani Dos Santosin the 78th minute when Barcelona faced CA Osasuna,breaking Lionel Messi’s record of the youngest Barcelona player to feature in a La Liga fixture.

Bojan, only 20 years of age, has already made his 100th league appearance for the Catalan club when Barcelona took on Getafe. He currently has 104 appearances to his name with a total of 26 goals. The Barcelona-number 9 is under contract at Camp Nou until 2015 after signing an extension at December last year.

Here’s the possible Liverpool lineup if manager Kenny Dalglish successfully captures Bojan Krkic.


3. If Zapata arrives

Yes, Liverpool are in desperate need for a top class centre-back, and Cristian Zapata can be the one who brings solid stopping power to the table for The Reds. The Udinese defender has previously reported that he is close in completing a deal to Liverpool, and also stated that he hopes to join a ‘big club’ like Liverpool.

We will see everything at the end of the Copa America, but I can say that contacts with Liverpool are at an advanced stage.

I hope to join this big club.

Cristian Zapata

His arrival might ultimately bump Danish centre-back Daniel Agger to the bench, or will Kenny Dalglish play a 5-3-2 (Agger at left back position while Carragher, Skrtel and Zapata in the middle) to keep Agger’s place in the starting lineup?

Here are a few possible lineups :
