    Nah there's a big chance.
    He really terrorized defenders towards the end of last season
    And most importantly he looks hungry.

    That's Ian Rush, one of the greatest goalscorers of all time and an absolute legend.

    ^Suarez isn't going to Arsenal. If he's sold, it'll be out of the country.
    Can't comment on Rooney.

    If Madrid sell CR and buys Bale, they'll come out a weaker team. I think Spurs will do what they can to hold on to him though, don't see them coming in the top 4 without him.

    I think Wenger is to set up on getting Suarez. He should've realized by now that it won't happen though.

    Well Arsenal haven't signed anyone, Suarez is the last guy left they could get. Arsenal fans demand a big money signing and if they don't and they flop this season as well then Wenger is finished. They have all that money they one of the top earning clubs in the world and yet they just cannot get the big names. I think they are tight with money, Wenger is and so is management. Also the transfer market is being swamped by Man City, PSG and Monaco at the moment. They signing all the good players from the mid level Euro clubs. There are only a very few players that Arsenal and other teams can sign.

    However I doubt Suarez will go to Arsenal, Liverpool would be mad to do so. If he is going to leave its more likely he will go to Madrid.

    To add 100million for Bale is fucking ridiculous.

    In other news the inevitable has happened and Fifa has begun talking about a winter world cup in Qatar lol. How fucking stupid can the footballing world get? They didn't realise Qatar is fucking hot in the summer? bunch of corrupt sell outs.

    i know Arsenal has been snubbed a couple of times
    like bernard going to shaktar donesk & i think Luis Gustavo

    I feel bad for Arsenal in some ways because they sold alot of their good players like RVP, Fabregas, Nasri, Song, Gervinho...
    their squad is still decent but it seems nobody wants to join Arsenal & Wenger has been holding out for suarez?!
    funny how Wenger claims they can afford Rooney tho.

    I see Rooney joining Chelsea at the very end of the transfer window.
    I read somewhere that Suarez has to formally apologize to his team mates, the staff, and the fans for considering jumping ship!

    and i agree about Real dropping 100 Euros on Bale !! The hack they trying to Prove?

    I think Fifa will chose another destination for the World Cup
    Fifa knew about the weather conditions in Quatar!! I dont know why they didnt choose Turkey (who have more of a footy history than Quatar)

    Arsenal used to be my favorite team to watch in PL (behind LFC, ofc), but I agree, they just ain't what they used to be. I love the playing style of the likes of Wilshere, Ox & Walcott who inbetween them got all the speed & technique needed, and they got plenty of decent players, but to be top 4 you need at least 3-4 exeptional players. They can't keep on selling them.

    BR has said so publicly, in addition Suarez is currently doing all his training away from the rest of the squad. Both BR & Henry have been clear that Suarez is not for sale. If Arsenal had done the same, they would have been in a completely different situation right now.

    ^ yep well said mate !

    Arsenal isnt my favorite team but i do enjoy watching them play (same with Liverpool)
    I hate to see them end up mid table or relegated
    Arsenal really need to learn how to hang on to their players.
    thing is alot of the fans want Wenger out but in the end who would they get as a replacement coach?

    It will be an interesting season tho

    who knows how Man United will do under Moyes & if RVP can stay healthy

    Chelsea has a good coach in mourinho and can end up in the top 4 easy.
    If they can get Rooney then I guess its safe to say they will end up
    maybe even 1st or 2nd

    Man City & Tottenham is in the air !
    If Spurs sell Bale, it would depend who they get with that large sum of $$

    i think maybe the 4th place battle would be between Spurs, Pool, & Gunners?!

    cheers

    The only reason Arsenal will always finish top 4 is because they have the best coach there is: Wenger. He makes players better and then the club has to sell them, because Arsenal is no longer the 'top' for them. Look at Robin van Persie, imo the greatest striker in the world. He was injured for years and Wenger kept his trust in him, he knew what he was capable of. Finally he had a whole season without injuries and he was scoring and delivering assists game after game. Instead of staying the Arsenal legend he was at that moment, he chose for the money (and with it ofcourse a big price). A huge blow to Arsenal fans. The reason Arsenal can no longer compete with the best in the PL is because they don't spend crazy money like Chelsea or Man City. How is it Tottenham Hotspur does not finish in the top 4 even though they keep buying new players and they have way, way more options than Arsenal? This year will be the same, even if Arsenal will not be buying new players. Gustavo is close to a transfer, hope to see him soon. I'd rather see Rooney than Suarez, but one of them would definitely be nice since Giroud is a blind horse and Podolski is too inconsistent.

    Bale is extremely overrated. The guy can run and shoot. He will be the biggest flop in La Liga since technique is the biggest requirement in that competition.100 million, what a joke. If he really is the replacement for Ronaldo, I feel sorry for the management of Real Madrid. I think he will stay though, whether Bale comes or not.

    Turkey couldn't even get the Euros. We tried for the 2016 tournament but lost to France. The best one was for the 2020 Euros. Turkey was the only country to bid but Platini said he wouldn't accept Turkey's bid because Istanbul is trying to get the 2020 Olympics as well, he said we cant host both tournaments. Reason why the 2020 Euro championship will be held in cities across Europe. To make up for not giving Turkey the Euros it was said that the semi-finals and finals for that tournament would be in Istanbul, but Platini denied it.

    So we have absolute no chance of getting a World Cup, Somalia has a better chance lol. To add though I don't think Turkey deserves it, forget about the massive amounts of football corruption, if Turkey hosted a tournament the stadiums would be empty. Last month Turkey hosted the U-20 World Cup, the average attendance was less than 1500 even though the tickets were free. Turks only care for football when Galatasaray and Fenerbahce play each other, the state of football in the rest of the country is abysmal.

    Im surprised Bayern are considering letting Gustavo go
    if Gustavo does go to Arsenal hopefully he becomes the next
    G.Silva
    id be very surprised if Rooney ended up at Arsenal
    I see him going to Chelsea.

    speaking of strikers.. Chelsea picked up Eto'o ??

    Arsenal is a good team and they develop their players, but
    sadly $$ wins over loyalty these days!

    i think Real might include 2 players and cash that would equal the 100 euro for Bale!!


    as for Quatar, ive been hearing UK might be a back up for the WC
    a winter WC would really throw off the scheduling for club footy.

    I really thought Turkey would be able to pull it off
    I think maybe Morocco or Tunisia which is closer to Europe and have a good footy history
    but they are considered African ?

    I think Bale can do good wherever really, just not 100 million-good. But Tottenham will be a force to count with if they hold on to him, and no matter how good Wenger is, he needs reinforcements. They will always be a top-4 threat no matter what though..

    Right now, I'd say Chelsea and City are the two teams that stand out. United got the winning mentality in their squad, but individually I don't know if they're good enough, especially at midfield. With Ferguson gone, I see them pretty much equally to Spurs, Arsenal and Liverpool assuming they got at least a somehow decent replacement for Downing (ie: not worse than SD). I might even go so far as to say that Tottenham is perhaps the better of them.

    Still plenty of time for players to come and go though..
