when the rumours first came up they didnt make sense at all. lloris is one of the best keepers around, outside of the usual mentioned ones, he's captain of a big national team and a big club. should be commanding about 20 mil.
Lloris would be better than your first choice, would you guys really spend money on a keeper that is going to be ahead of the guy you've been developing who is now coming into his own?
There is not much difference, but at this point, yes.
I wouldn't have any problem if Wenger signed him. Szczesny was poor in the second half of the season and the only reason people don't notice this is because of the difference in class between him and Almunia/Fabianski. They make Woj look world class. With Szczesny, we eventually have a GK who can join an elite list, but he's far more stupid right now.
I don't think RVP leaving is all doom and gloom to be honest. If Giroud and Podolski adapt well, they will get us goals, perhaps enough to secure a fourth placed finish. Also I think if Spurs lose both Modric and VDV and if rumours regarding their departures are true, they will struggle.
Chelsea will be lucky to get 4th with the crap business we are doing.
That sounds ungrateful because we just signed Hazard and Marin, but the fact that we seem to refuse to look at the centre of midfield is pissing me off. Only flimsy links to Modric who is off to Madrid anyway.
On top of that, we want Maicon. And links to Ibrahimovic today. This isn't 2008!
And now Schurrle (who I wouldn't mind, but sort out the things that are desperate first). We should be offering Madrid £15m for Sahin (they have barely used him and got him for cheap, they can't be demanding a lot for him, fuck them). This could solve their money issue for Modric, so it might look inviting.
I keep hearing about bridging the gap between us and Manchester and challenging on all fronts. Impossible with this squad. It's not good enough.
