I see Chelski had a Blackman on the bench last night.
I bet that racist Terry hated that.

For the first time ever I'd probably agree with that. We've got decent players not making the bench. Maybe a backup left back but apart from that I think we're ready to go for the season

I would love to nail down Lanzini and Song on permanents - am I right in thinking Lanzini is obviously pretty much agreed and Song's contract ends next year so we can agree the free transfer with him in January? Or have I made that last bit up?

Tore +2 seems delightfully excessive... Especially as we only have one space in the squad and quite good depth so far. I assume there will be some outgoings (maybe the big man to Sunderland)

As much as I love Jenks we really need to sort out a long-term right back as Arsene clearly isn't going to let him go!

Also, if you don't mind me asking Jinxed; is that what you'd guess or what you've heard?

I'd like us to give it one last shot with him personally. That's two games in the space of a few weeks where he has come off the bench to assist a goal late on to win us points. There is 100% a place for a fit Andy Carroll in our squad

Breel Emoblo

Hearing Jenkinson talk on the radio the other night I think he knows he is not wanted at Arsenal and wants to stay with us.

Kept saying it will be taken out of him hands and these things have a way of sorting themselves out.

The way Bilic talks about Gokhan Tore you'd imagine we'll be in for him, hopefully we can get it done.

This.

Seriously what would we get? 8m?

More upside in persisting with him till the end of the season then there is selling in Jan.

A fit motivated Andy Carroll is worth more to us than what we'd get for him. 8m doesn't buy you anything these days.

I don't think we should get rid of Carroll either, but;

Agreed deal with Lanzini is £8 mil.
Michail Antonio cost us £7 mil.
Philipe Coutinho cost Liverpool £8 mil.

and that's just off the top of my head...

He should of thought about this before signing a new contract with Arsenal then,

Cant see we will pay the fee they want now, whereas had he not signed a new contract we may of signed him for a low fee.

We should already be scouting out a new RB to sign January / end of the season.

Touché. I didn't think of that.

Agreed, smart buying can bring in the right players. Sakho 3.5m is another.

I wasn't very clear sorry, to clarify I more meant that in the 8m range every player is a gamble and half will flop. No guarantees at that price range. Even Coutinho was a relative flop at Inter.

Back on who we are bringing in, it seems rather obvious. With only 20 goals in 9 games I'd be surprised if Slav thinks we have enough fire-power in the squad..

Outs:
O'Brien (released)
Henry (loan till end of season)

Ins:
Lanzini (perm)
Song (perm)
Gökhan Töre (Besiktas) (£16m)
Breel Embolo (FC Basel) (£25m)
Bernard (Shakhtar) (£24m)

Speaking of RBs, wonder how Trippier feels about his move south?

The sheer number of players who tank their careers in N17 is incredible
