Aaron Ramsey less than complimentary about the AOC move on Twitter.... #shambles.... of course that's his nickname and I'm sure Ramsey never intended it to be taken any other way :roll:
In other words an extended look into *******’s head, and it seems to have some pretty good things in it (who among us is totally free of mental garbage?) It’s nice to see that he is confident enough so he can play some blues again,I’d like to hear more.

£183 million for Coutinho?

Liverpool are either seriously deluded or that was their 'go fuck yourself' price.

I wonder which one?

Liverpool's Emre Can reaches agreement in principle to join Juventus in the summer

Sad to see as I like him, but pretty much assured of champions league football and always being in the running for the title. Suppose you can't blame him.

Barkley has stitched his boyhood club up to the tune of £20M. I hope he brings some earplugs and a nappy with him when he returns to Goodison.

Only 20m? Youse got robbed, seriously robbed. Drinkwater was 35 million. When he has his head right, Barkley can be one of the best around.

What, you think many will turn up to watch reserve games just to have a pop at him?

Yep, that’s pretty good. The notion that a player’s value goes down if he doesn’t want to play for the club he’s at is particularly good.

It seems Sanchez is heading for Man Utd.

Chelsea have indicated they would be willing to sign Andy Carroll on a permanent basis and have opened discussions with West Ham.

The Premier League champions are scrutinising a number of forwards in an attempt to ease the workload on Álvaro Morata and were initially interested in taking Carroll on a six-month loan. West Ham would want around £20m for a player who has 18 months on his £70,000-a-week deal.

So who won the war between Arsenal and Utd? Who came off better. I think Arsenal came off better. Surround Giroud with Ozil and Mkhitaryan, with wilshere pulling the strings behind them, I think that do them for the rest of the season. With Sanchez coming and mourinho preferring more established players, if I were Rashford, i'd be looking for another club.

United have a strong attacking line up augmented by a genuinely world-class player when he's at his best.

Arsenal have lost their best player. Your argument is based on hypothetical situations.

Mkhitaryan could be a great player for Arsenal, I don't doubt that. Given that Mourinho dismissed De Bruyne's credentials when he was at Chelsea, it could be argued that Mourinho has a blind spot in terms of some players. But losing their best player and potentially Ozil in the summer diminishes Arsenal's reputation as a club to go to for other players.

There is no doubt that Wenger's ability to spot genuinely great players for virtually nothing went a long time ago. And I can't see Arsenal, in light of losing Sanchez, finishing in the Top 4 unless they go on a roll of form that they've not shown for at least a year or so. Another season without Champions' League football and talk of permanent decline might gather.

Well yes, that's why I asked people's opinions, to see how they think it will fare out.

I don't think they'll get 4th but I think it will be a lot closer than people think with them.
