Gibbs has signed for WBA for £7m so good luck to him. He was no Kenny Sansom or Ashley Cole but he always gave his best and never complained (in public anyway)when he was out of the side.

Liked him but thought he was another one that didn't fulfill his potential .
Interesting to see if pulis improves him.

Could be seen as a good thing or a bad thing, I for one am glad to see the back of him - Happy to sit on the bench or not even in the 18 and collect his salary. He was massively overpaid which was why its taken us so long to move him on as no other club would touch his salary.

In my opinion it's good riddance, we need less of his type at the club. Serial bottler in the big games if he wasn't injured and never showed passion or fight.

At first read I thought this was harsh but on reflection it is a description that fits a good number of the current squad. Happy to take the money; happy to be on the outside looking in; and happy to bear no responsibility. A perfect 'Wenger ' player of the last decade - overpaid, undertrained, averagely talented.

Agreed, it could be harsh but its too true. Theo is the same, he can't get a game, it's a world cup year why is he not making noises to move? Because he's happy on his 120k a week keeping the bench warm.

I saw a tweet - Arsenal the first club in history where a manager has lost the dressing room so the club decide to sell the team rather than ship the manager out. It's so funny but it's so true.

The club is rotten from top to bottom and the longer it goes on the longer it will take for the next man to fix it.

Might as well sell Alexis. We're not going to win the league with him anyway.

It's just been confirmed that a fee has been agreed with Liverpool for the Ox. I didnt particularly want him to stay anyway but it's the fucking lies that annoy me. Why have the club left it to today until the sell our full team! There's no way we're going to get that many replacements in.

Read on twitter that finances due to missing out on the CL have been an issue with us paying CL wages. You couldn't make it up.

Ox going to Anfield! On his performance last Sunday, I would, if I was a scouser, be scratching my head as to why do we want him?

If he responds to the Klopp style of management - rather than the cushy, cuddly style - it will clearly demonstrate the root cause of our troubles - Wenger!

A few months ago we were told that the Ox would be integral to our future yet now we see what a money grabbing bunch of no marks run this Club with totally no interest in football and success. Worst of all, no regard for this Club or the people who have supported it all their lives. If my Dad and Grandad are looking down now they must be totally bewildered and greatly saddened!

The £92m offer for Lemar was a cosmetic con just to placate the fans. AW knew that Lemar was playing for France and there would be no time for a medical and discuss personal terms before the 23.00 hours deadline. As it happens Lemar turned us down anyway and who could blame him. I suggest all those going to the Emirates tomorrow week take their tin hats the atmosphere will be toxic and if we don`t win which is a distinct possibility there will be a riot.

Apparently the club are well pleased with the much improved squad after the transfer window has closed.
Even keeping Sanchez didn't mean much to me as he wanted to go.
As RR said Lemar was just cosmetic and we had no real intention of buying anyone as we are nearly out of budget concerning our transfer pot.
One of the richest clubs in the world has no money to buy payers.

Looks like Lemar will be joining in January after agreeing £250k a week. Let's hope he's worth it

With Lemars value either staying the same or more likely going up, I assume that we will therefore be saying goodbye to Sanchez and Ozil as well as anyone else we can sell to make up the transfer number.

No post on this one for ages as we all know it's unlikely anything will happen.
Playing the if game for January.
Sanchez,Ozil,Walcott,Mustifa leave, and we bring in David Luiz,Evens, Draxler,Lemar,
Surely we would be a better team
