    Don't think that's the case.

    Same as previous seasons the money will be there to pay too much for shit over valued players. 52mill for Fred.

    Just who the fok wants to go to Man Utd other than 21 year old Brits playing for mid-table teams and below.

    Lulu, actually you kinda hit it on the head. I would be happy to have 21 YO Brits and see them develop and form a defence which Arse haven't had in 15 years. TBH top flight is fuk'd IMHO - the balance between clubs, supporters and players is wrong. Its too expensive to own and run a club and that leaves them at the mercy of cashed up russian, ME or Yank wankers - they are only interested in winning and couldn't give a fuk about British players and youth development. Players can seemingly do what they want and could not give a shit about loyalty and behind it all are the grubby Agents.

    I would at the moment prefer the Top 6 to fook off form a Euro league and Cvnts that support them can fuk off too. Get back to real support and leagues

    I am honestly at the stage where i am thinking of dropping my lifelong support and switching to a local club or Champ/1st Div team - there is just no feeling anymore for Prem teams.

    The fucking cheek!


    Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny refused to travel on the club's pre-season tour of the United States after a request to have his contract cancelled was rejected, PA understands.

    The 33-year-old was due to fly out to the USA with the rest of the squad on Thursday but the club announced earlier in the day that the defender would not be travelling.

    It is understood Koscielny, whose contract runs until next year, made it clear to the club that he wish to be released from the agreement this summer in order to sign for another club.


    But Arsenal have stood firm and, upon their refusal to grant the former France international a free transfer, Koscielny responded by not joining his team-mates in the USA.


    "Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel to the US for our pre-season tour," a club statement read.


    "We are very disappointed by Laurent's actions, which are against our clear instructions.


    "We hope to resolve this matter and will not be providing any further comment at this time."


    Internal disciplinary proceedings will begin against Koscielny in the coming days as the rest of Unai Emery's squad prepare for the new Premier League campaign.


    Koscielny's future is now in doubt ahead of the season opener at Newcastle on August 11 and the situation may leave Arsenal needing to recruit another centre-back in the transfer window.

    It doesn't say they won't sell him, it's quite the opposite.

    He wants to just cancel his contract and walk into another one, cheeky fucker.

    UTD looking to get 1/4 Bn for two players, Arse's transfer budget is 45M




    Manchester United have added 30m to their valuation of France midfielder Paul Pogba, 26, and want 180m for the player they re-signed for 89m in 2016.(Star)


    Juventus have ended their interest in Pogba, leaving the way clear for Real Madrid to sign the France international. (Mail)


    Manchester United could turn to Monaco's France Under-19 defender Benoit Badiashile, 18 - also being monitored by Wolves - if they miss out on Leicester's England international Harry Maguire, 26. (L'Equipe, via Express)


    Inter Milan are likely to have to pay around 90m to stand any chance of signing Belgium forward Romelu Lukaku, 26, from Manchester United this summer. (Telegraph)


    Arsenal will demand 8.8m for 33-year-old France defender Laurent Koscielny, who wants to leave the club and refused to travel on the club's pre-season tour of the US. (London Evening Standard)


    Arsenal have reignited their interest in Benfica's Portugal defender Ruben Dias, 22, in the wake of the Koscielny developments. (Mail)


    West Ham are in talks with Eintracht Frankfurt over a deal to sign 25-year-old French striker Sebastian Haller for around 40m. (Sky Sports)


    Manchester United's Republic of Ireland Under-17 striker Mipo Odubeko, 16, who scored 35 goals for the academy last season, has turned down a new contract. (Mail)


    Tottenham are set to make a bid for Leeds' English midfielder Kalvin Phillips, who the Yorkshire club value at 30m. (Mirror)


    West Brom want to bring in Brentford's French forward Neal Maupay, 22, but are behind Sheffield United and local rivals Aston Villa in the queue for his signature. (Express and Star)


    Manchester United remain interested in signing midfielder Sean Longstaff from Newcastle despite the clubs remaining a long way apart in their valuation of the 21-year-old Englishman. (Sky Sports)


    But Newcastle's 50m price tag on Longstaff may force Manchester United to end their pursuit. (ESPN)


    Blackpool are among the sides hoping to sign Everton's Scotland Under-21 forward Fraser Hornby, 19, on loan this summer. (Liverpool Echo)


    Everton have had a 200,00 bid rejected by Fleetwood for 19-year-old England under-19 goalkeeper Billy Crellin. (Mail)

    Maybe not the right place, but thought some folks might find this interesting - snippets from an ex-Ipswich player talking about Roy Keane's style of management:





    Oh, and this pissed me off:



    An average player with very little experience is apparently worth 28,000 pounds per week to play in the third division nowadays (that's 1.5 million British Pounds per year...).
    [Surely Ipswich won't be paying him 28,000 pounds per week, maybe Everton pay part of that, but WTF would anybody pay a two-bob inexperienced leftback 28,000 pounds per week to play in the third division - this must be wrong.]

    A quick check found that our goalkeeper earns 15,000 pounds per week (750,000 per year) - not bad money for the third division...

    Thanx for the optimism.
    I do think they'll be alright this year, in fact i think they'll actually finish a fair bit higher than 17th.
    Gonna surprise some people.

    There's a good chance they might do a "Wolves" this season!

    You wanna put a few of their players in your fantasy football squad if you haven't signed up already.

    Gonna be an interesting season for sure..

    So either Emery has only got 45m to spend or he's just put in 97m worth of bids.

    Fucking red tops can't make their fucking minds up.

    Got great choices up front there.

    That's normally the most difficult bit.

    Arsenal.
