I absolutely agree, Sanchez is an absolutely quality signing. I did want him at Liverpool but I wasn't remotely distraught when he chose Arsenal over us. He made the logical choice, Arsenal have been an ever-present in the CL I think for the entire time that Wenger has been there. That is a phenomenal achievement and to think a huge number of the Arsenal support want and wanted Wenger out is pathetic and those fans should be ashamed of themselves. He will do great things at Arsenal. But his greatest achievement would be to get Ozil firing by simply being there, if he can do that then he's worth his weight in gold, because a firing Ozil and a firing Sanchez can genuinely win Arsenal the league.

Some Real Madrid fans wanted Ozil to stay, I stand corrected and will adjust my comment. 'don't seem even remotely bothered that he's gone, similar to Real fans and Ozil last season, barring a few who it seems were bothered'

I'm not convinced. He seems to have had a decent season at Barca but on the back of some fairly torrid ones. Nothing really to suggest that he's the game changer F365 are suggesting other than some of his performances for his country. Barca fans really don't seem even remotely bothered that he's gone, similar to Real fans and Ozil last season. Neither are quite good enough.

HarryBoulton, he has at times been the most advanced attacker for Barcelona and sometimes played behind the striker at Udinese. Saying that, I reckon he'll mostly play out wide freeing up Podolski to play in the middle. As for more pressing matters, it's starting to look promising...

@HarryBoulton - the iminent signings of Debuchy and (by the looks of it) Khedira would seem to show that Arsene Wenger intends to fix all the 'pressing matters' in his side.

So it looks like Barca got away with their punishment, would an English club get away with it I wonder? Didn't they say Ozil was going to be a game changer? No offence but he is no Schurrle is he! Having a good WC doesn't guarantee you anything in the prem but Sanchez looks good it a shame he has gone to a selling club, lol.

@shedzy , I don't doubt Ozil's class, regardless of how his form bottomed out towards the end of last season. I do think that Arsenal have more pressing matter elsewhere in the side, I have to say. But the window is but young, to coin a phrase. We'll see what else Wenger has up his sleeve.

HarryBoulton says...

@nicos, super brain? Oh, the irony.........if you knew the first thing about football, which you evidently do not, you would know that he started out playing wide right, and generally plays as an inside right striker. Up to this point at least, he has never been a central striker. Ever.

Bobsy/Harry Boulton - i agree with those two most recent posts. But lets see what else M Wenger and his magic hat come up with this summer. Remember, re Ozil - form is temporary - he is unarguably class.
