    Novelty prize? Had to beat the champions of Spain in the final. Back then winning any European trophy was a huge achievement

    Looking forward to John Terry experiencing the first sacking of his managerial career

    So we can assume Delph wasn;t the 31 year old Sheikh Mansour Team player who was arrested last week then...?

    Quite intrigued to see how he does, not sure he's the £50m CB Arsenal needed. No doubt talented with a lot of potential but I feel they needed a game changing CB - just like we do - and I'm not sure that right now White is that type of defender.

    Xhaka is going to be offered a new contract and a wage increase after his move to Roma fell through.
    <doh>. I truly despair.
    He's 29 in September, made clear his intention to leave and we want to reward him with a new deal when his current one expires in 2023 and he'll be 31 by then anyway? No point protecting his 'value' when he won't be worth much anyway in a year or two.

    I'm living in feint hope that this is a tactic to call Roma's bluff and force them into moving quick to get the Xhaka deal over the line. But doesn't seem likely anymore.

    Good news for you lot and the rest of the league. Horrible news for us.

    Rather unambitious move for him. Thought he'd have wanted European football. <whistle>

    Is that their whole transfer budget done on Ben White?

    Nah, they've got plenty of money. They'll spend the rest on Xhaka's contract though, thankfully! <laugh>

    I said it on the Arsenal board. I’ve not known many occasions where fans and management have diametrically opposing views (for this long) on a player’s quality.

    He’s been a regular under Wenger, Emery and Arteta, whereas Mourinho was singing his praises too. I don’t get what they’re seeing in him that the rest of us aren’t. It’s so baffling.

    Plays well for Switzerland, but always looks like a liability for Arsenal.
    I can see why another club might take a chance on him.
    No idea why Arteta's expecting him to suddenly turn a corner for you, though.

    He has one or two good games 5 or 6 average games and 1or 2 horror shows every 10 games from what I see.

    Not the worst player in the world but it's telling that NO club above arsenal have come in for him.

    Like you said ... baffling that he's being offered another contract.

    Hopefully, as that leaves the door open for us to sign Aouar...

    Thought you were talking about Pogba until I saw the earlier posts
