Staying Sane Through The Transfer Window

According to popular opinion this summer is going to be different we are told we have money to spend, we are told we don’t need to sell.

There is increasing clamour for expensive signings from the fans, the press are doing their best in fuelling the expectation further maybe with the clubs PR doing the briefing, who knows.

But let us learn some lessons from previous windows and reserve judgement until it closes before we declare it success or failure:

1) ignore all talk of “done deals” until the player is announced on the club website

2) if the quote used by the press is not attributed to anyone then ignore

3) similarly if there isn’t even a quote and the article implies a source or uses the words xxxxx understands that…. ignore

4) there has been much talk from football pundits that we need 3 players, some even 4…..these pundits have previously said we wouldn’t finish in top 4, that Spuds have the greatest side ever, and that Arteta was a spent force before he arrived and the BFG was the worst PL defender ever. Basically if we are listening to pundits to make football judgements we are listening to imbeciles (unless its Gary Neville)

5) We took 24 from 30 in our last 10 games, in fact we were second to ManUre in points haul in the last 20 games, how far away are we in reality?

So remember the above and relax through the summer transfer window, it’s a done deal when it’s a done deal, we are interested when the player is at the ground having a medical.

All other news is not news, enjoy the window….we get what we get.

    we took 26 from 30 in the last ten games, and were top of the form league in that (ManUre lost to Chelsea and drew with us).
    But I agree with all your sanity statements!

  2. FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GIE… Why Gary Neville?

  3. Excuse me Chris, but I think you must be new to this site.
    There’s an “unwritten rule”…

    GIE, tell him please.

    Big Al. Back on site. Have you been on holiday, somewhere cold?

  5. Big Raddy says:

    GIE. The warning about retaining sanity has come a few seasons (about 30) too late,

    The Liam Brady summer did for me.

  6. Wonderman says:

    Totally agree GIE, to be honest I’m more eagerly watching the removal of the deadwood I.e Chamakh Squillaci, Djourou, Bendy, Arshavin, Denilson and Santos, as I believe this players who are taking wages whilst contributing nothing ( wether on loan or not) are prohibiting potential contract negotiations

  7. FrothingInarticulateLoon says:

    Load of old tosh GiE.

    I get very excited(!) about every scrap of unconfirmed or sourceless transfer gossip that I’ve ever read or heard.

    Whats the point otherwise…??

    The off season is a great time for madmen and surrealists like myself. Why are you trying to take away my fun, and in turn, ruin my life…??

    Not happy

    ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  8. FrothingInarticulateLoon says:

    Hey Wonderman…where’s your mate Sharkey these days…??

  9. LB says:

    In fact there is a post there. Most of us don’t know the length of contract the players Wonderman just spoke about. It would be useful to have a photo and an explanation, so we can chat as to whether we would want them to go or to stay. Just a thought.

    Top post GIE

    Thanks for the read.

    Tips for a sane summer:
    1/ Delete your bookmarked newsnow aggregator
    2/ If nothing happens by next friday then Wenger will be on holidays, sliding on water slides, bungy jumping and asking puma to put buttons rather than zipson their subs jackets. so he won’t be buying anyone til the end of June
    3/ We are not going to buy Falcao, Cavani, Lewandowski so get over it
    4/ in fact we will not buy any player WORTH more than 25m
    5/ We will not buy Fabregas
    6/ We will not MISS OUT on Jovetic, Higuain etc we will either not bid or they will join someone else and there was nothing we could have done.
    7/ If you haven’t heard of someone the press are saying is worth 20million+ then be honest about that don’t automatically assume they are brilliant and essential – Jovetic is someone who was way down our radars until he became linked with the club. Now he is Bergkamp and Ian Wright rolled into one.
    8/ Wenger will drag out any purchase so don’t agonise over the delay when you have heard confirmation that we are in negotiations.
    9/ Don’t commit any positive comments about Wayne Rooney to any blogs until you see him in a good guy shirt. He is evil, greedy and shaggs grannies until that moment. If that happens, ignore his signing until all his crimes against Arsenal are expunged.
    10/ The “new Vieira, Fabregas, Henry, wilshire etc etc” is always more likely to be actually turn into the new Chamakh
    11/ The new wilshire is not exactly a thing to want given his injury record.
    12/ A player going on strike to play for Arsenal is a transfer saga to Barcelona or Man Utd waiting to happen –
    13/ Whoever we buy, it will not be enough. We could blow โ‚ฌ500 million on the entire Barca squad and the media and ArseneRust brigade will say we should have spent the money on Bayern, and vice versa.
    14/ We will have a full preseason with no major sagas (we now have a team built around no one player) so have faith – Thats worth 10 points to us. I few good signings is another 10 and that is a title challenge.
    15/ We don’t want to be like Man City or Chelsea so look on new signings warily until they prove their worth. I’d Rather Chuks Aneke scored 15 goals for us next season than Christian Benteke
    16/ Take a holiday from football altogether.
    17/ Don’t be like me as i proceed to ignore 1-16 above

  12. Norfolk Gooner says:

    Good morning to you all,

    I quite like the transfer window, it does give a little meaning to the morning, something to look forward to, reading the trash written by the desperate imbeciles, the made up stories of the sports writers, who laughingly call themselves journalists, it does help to take one’s attention away from the swivel-eyed loons and rich college boys, who have never had a proper job, who are attempting to run the country.

    Long may it continue, well at least untill August.

  13. LB says:

    Brilliant comment 98

  14. Wonderman says:

    @froth…. Sharkey is being held prisoner in the city of London !! Lol I’m planning his escape soon!

  15. Norfolk Gooner says:

    Just for the fun of it, today’s stories are that Vermaelen is off to Napoli and an “Arsenal target”, Ivorian defender Serge Aurier, 20, will not be leaving Toulouse unless ” something crazy happens”. do thse two stories have legs? Let’s just watch and see.

  16. Red Arse says:

    Nice Post, ๐Ÿ™‚

    I find all the transfer rumours frustrating, pointless and frankly irritating.

    At the same time I love reading them and allowing my baser instincts to wallow in ‘wouldn’t it be great if it were true …….’

    I also find it amusing that in the search for ‘hits’, sites can take diametrically opposed or even antithetical stances on transfer ‘reports’ like, we are close to signing ‘x’, only to immediately read on the next site that we have been rebuffed by ‘x’.

    With the close season an unnecessary, and unwanted, break in my dietary requirements of constant football, and all its ancillary news, the transfer window nonsense performs an important function in keeping me involved, excited by possible, albeit nonsensical, rumours/hopes of new players coming to Arsenal, while all the time knowing 99% of it is rubbish.

    Long may it continue! ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Red Arse says:

    GIE,

    If you get the opportunity to seek out a comedy show on BBC 4, please do so, it is an American programme, called ‘Parks and Recreations’.

    There is a character in it called ‘Andy’ who makes me think, quite illogically, but irresistibly, of a certain AAer based solely on the limited images I have seen of the said AAer, and makes me chuckle while fantasising that he is the alter ego of the respected Post writer I have in mind! ๐Ÿ˜€

  18. Morning all, yes GiE – it’s absolutely essenrial for your sanity to have the jaundiced view of the transfer windoow you advocate.

    Moving onto transfer stories we can chuckle about – AvB to Napoli and The Chimp to Madrid are 2 things to make all gooners larf at the hapless Spuds.

    For once. all transfer speculation will b eon the spuds this summer as they go through a very destabilising time and they won’t be able to rest till it’s is the 1st of September – tlll then, the N17 swamp dwellers will have many sleepless nights.

    FOYS – -Mind the gaaaap — Spiral of negativity, hahahhahahahaha

    You heard it here first.

  19. Manthan says:

    I don’ t wanna see Vermalan leaving us?? what yur thoughts? He is decent player…

  20. LB says:

    Morning Manthan

    A quality CD on the bench is worth almost as much as a first choice CD. The club will move hell and high water to keep him.

  21. Red Arse says:

    Manthan,

    I no idea whether TV will leave or not, as I doubt any decision will have been made yet.

    However, as we are discussing transfer rumours, there are a couple of things to consider; AW would never let him go for the rumoured ยฃ5m, and secondly, another rumour insists that we are close to signing Williams from Swansea, so either way we would have another very capable CH and perhaps Djourou may be returning too.

    I suspect that IF we buy Williams, it is more likely that TV would go — but I hope he stays.

  22. Manthan Davda says:

    I don’t want him to go and seeing his reaction in post match celebartions at Sports direct Arena I don’t see him going any were.I guess he will stay but i don’t want Djourou back he is our 4th choice from past many years. We should loan him or sell him…

  23. dandan says:

    Fine sensible article GIE. Just to remind AAers, no one can be purchased or sold Prior to the 1st July and then as the 31 Aug is a Saturday the transfer window will not close until midnight on Monday the 2nd Sept.
    Between those times there is a possibility that some of the rumours/garbage could be true.
    Before that, unless the player concerned is out of contract ignore him and enjoy your families and football free time, because once the new season starts their will no doubt be stress aplenty for us all to share.

  24. GunnerN5 says:

    Raddy,

    GIE is adding a few things to my posts and planning to start them on May 28th – they will cover every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday for 8 consecutive weeks. That means other posts will be needed on Monday, Friday and Sunday – so only 24 more over 8 weeks.

    GIE said that if there is any “breaking/pertinent news” then he will adjust the posting schedule accordingly.

    I’m sure that he will let us know if the plan changes.

  25. Gooner In Exile says:

    Morning all, sorry for my mathematical slip on our last ten games Chris, my only excuse is I was doing this last minute my head knew we drew twice so I deducted 6 points not 4, ie I hadn’t had enough coffee when the plea for apost came in…..

    As for others comments in glad we are all going to take a chill pill, I think we’ve had fair warning of the insanity in the last few years….as Wonderman says the important elements will be who leaves more than who arrives. LBi believe Transfermarkt.com is quite accurate with player contracts. Unfortunately too often the contracts when announced as Long Term (5years from now or 5 years on end of existing?) or just signed a new contract (3 years or maybe just a one year extension?).

    Pretty sure Szczesny has 1 year left now, Fab1 expired. BFG probably only has one or two seasons left on existing deal.

    Like 98 I won’t be believing the hype about players, and I can’t claim to watch any of the other leagues enough to know if Jovetic is better than Higuain so won’t comment until I see them play.

  26. goonerjake says:

    I love the transfer window… me and my good mate josh always have a laugh. We always say we will be linked with all sorts of great players and come the transfer window deadline announce the signing of a 15 year old great prospect from Outer Mongolia. – Not too far from the truth actually. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Up the Arsenal

    PS. Im sure this year it will be different.

  27. GunnerN5 says:

    Let’s hope that Arsene makes his moves early on in the window so that we don’t have nervous twitches all summer.

    But we know better – he will keep us waiting and make his moves at the last minute.

  28. He's a complainer says:

    Hi Wonderman,

    According to the transfermarkt website the contracts for our ‘out on loan’ players expire at the end of the seasons as shown below :

    Arshavin 2013
    Squillaci 2013
    Bendtner 2014
    Denilson 2014
    Chamakh 2014
    Santos 2015
    Djourou 2015
    Park 2015

    We have 3 players with 1 year left on their contract:

    Szcsesny, Sagna & Rosicky.

  29. goonerjake says:

    Stewart Robson has been speaking about Arsenal again. Arsenal must win trophies or sack Wenger – he told talksport.

    When will that bitter and twisted man shut up. Let it go Stewie, I don’t hear you talking about your other former clubs West Ham or Coventry negatively, – then again they did not sack you did they?

  30. Gooner In Exile says:

    I wouldn’t mind if Robson was one of our greats but in truth he isn’t. Although he managed a player of the year during the Terry Neill era. And sold after GGs appointment.

    Arsenal Record
    150 games
    16 goals
    0 Trophies

    Other Playing Record
    0 Trophies

    STFU you bitter bitter man!

  31. IanRealGunner says:

    Whilst the form guide tells us that we had a fantastic end-of-season run in, we only played one top-end team in that period (and Man Ure had already won the title by them and were hungover for the first 30 minutes). Whilst it is good for us to talk transfers over this next non-football period, it would be better for the club to focus on what went wrong this year and how they are going to beat the top teams next year – that is where the points deficit has to be made up (the opposite of the relegation 6-pointer, where every time we get beaten by a top team it creates a 6-point difference).

    That’s where the effort should be, rather than bringing in a large number of players. One or two maybe!!!

  32. jnyc says:

    Love the post GIE. I always tell myself and my friends that i wont believe it until its on arsenal.com. But i do LOVE this silly season ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. Jamie says:

    Great post GIE.

    Tomorrow’s big headline:
    Arsenal to swoop for Messi, Xavi and Iniesta.
    Arsenal have agreed terms with Barcelona for a 300 million pound deal for Lionel Messi, Xavi Hernandez ans Andres Iniesta.

    Sources close to the north London club confirmed that the club will also be signing Bruno Mars to compete with Wojciech Szczesny and to mentor him since he (Mr. Mars can catch anything, even a grenade) and referee Mike Dean as Wenger’s rent boy in line with the new English tradition famously employed by the mancs.

    You heard it here first.

    Our sources: My 10 year old son wrapped in a magic blanket with awsome prediction powers.
    ๐Ÿ˜€

  34. FrothingInarticulateLoon says:

    Thanks Jamie.

    Can you ask your magical son to give me six numbers between 1 and 49. Then transmit those no.s to Camelot around 8.00pm tomorrow…??

    I’ll cut you in for 100% of my losses and 1% of my winnings, fair enough..??

  35. chas says:

    Stewart Robson is a wanker (copyright GM)

  36. chas says:

    Very sensible advice, GIE.

    I rarely take any notice of the rumour mill.
    Hit-gathering wind-up merchants should be ignored completely.
    Since when has anyone correctly predicted a signing?

  37. evonne says:

    chas!!!!!! I was going to write it ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great advice GiE! The closing verse should be ‘pass this on to other Gunners’, including those who know some player’s brother’s fiancรฉe’s daughter, or in my case Bacary Sagna’s agent’s employee

    Double – excellent comment, love it

    BigAl – why Gary Neville?? Because is a Gunner

  38. TERRY MANCINI HAIR TRANSPLANT says:

    Totaly agree GIE.

    Hate the transfer window. It can push you to a frenzy, and in extreme cases drive you to kill. hahaha

    I switch off completely. The only time this plague manifests itself is when i am dreaming. Last night i had this dream that Higuain was put through by Wilshere and smashed the ball past Alex Stepney. Apart from the Stepney bit, it seemed so real.

    Who knows, maybe its a premonition, and Utd are going to resign Stepney. I would rather have that than us buying Higuain, even Gervinio would score a hat trick past him. hahaha

  39. njstone9 says:

    I wonder if the players enjoy the transfer speculation. You can just imagine them sitting down to play the “who have I been mindlessly linked with signing for today?” game.

    They probably even take bets on it!

  40. kelsey says:

    Afternoon all.

    Whatever Robbie Savage says, well it must be correct ๐Ÿ™‚

    We have addressed the beating of the clubs we should beat now we have to improve our record against the other top 5 sides which quite frankly wasn’t good enough.

    With regards to Vermaelen I hope he stays he is essential to the squad.I hope the armband wasn’t the poisoned chalice .Good players are entitled to an average season and I have a feeling he might be alternated with the other two as Djourou appears to have lost form,favour, and is off.

  41. Red Arse says:

    It seems that one or two bloggers have said that, like me, they actually find the buzz of the transfer rumours quite amusing, and are better than having a 3 month stoney silence.

    Why not? No one needs to read them.

    For those who are driven to kill, (naughty boy, Terry) by the frequency and inanity of the rumours, or those who say they know the rumours are a load of codswallop, but still allow them to get under their skin, perhaps a solution might be to take an Italian cycling break with Big Raddy — he has a gi-normous pad in Northern Italy, and you won’t read a word of English! ๐Ÿ˜€

  42. GoonerB says:

    Nice one GIE. I am going to take your advice and not listen to any transfer talk. Actually I am not sure I have the discipline to do that but will do my best.

    Our latter part of the season form is something to feel optimistic about. With the right additions we could really do something next season,……… but I don’t care who the additions will be and will not speculate in any way shape or form on it…….. (said with quick manic voice without drawing breath). My psychiatrist, Dr. Gooner In-Freudian Exile himself, advised me not to for the sake of my mental sanity.

    Is it only me that would be disappointed if TV goes. Although the switch to the BFG and Kos partnership seemed to coincide with our defensive improvement I can’t help feeling that he is still an excellent defender that just hit a temporary poor run of form. Plenty of top defenders have historically had spells like that. If he goes and another comes in would they really be a significant improvement on TV?

  43. Adrian says:

    Ah Kelsey, I see you agreed with me on TV while I was typing.

  46. RockyLives says:

    Thanks GiE
    I might actually try to start ignoring Newsnow Arsenal this summer. It’s not so much that it’s annoying (after all, it’s obviously 99.9% bollocks), more that it becomes a bit obsessive.

    I’m sure if we sign anyone I’ll hear about it on AA soon enough.

    Very amusing that the Spuds are going to have a summer like our recent ones, with lots of speculation about the monkey. I noticed even some of the Real Madrid players have started saying he would be great in their team – in the same way the Barca players kept working to destabilise Cesc.

    Let’s hope Bale dithers all summer then bales (geddit?) on August 31st ๐Ÿ™‚

  47. RockyLives says:

    It sounds like Gn5 and GiE’s summer spectacular is going to be amazing.

    Can’t wait, chaps…

    As Gn5 says, that only leaves 24 Posts over 8 weeks to be written.

    I’ll write my Monday Posts as usual – so that just leaves 16 Posts over 8 weeks between everyone else – or two a week between all the AA regulars. Come on you lazy lot – get scribbling!

  48. GunnerN5 says:

    Rocky,

    GIE was wise enough to realise that Monday’s were already in good hands, or should I say finger tips.

    All of my posts are about our all time great players and managers, so I hope they create an enjoyable/informative read – but frankly I’m more than a tad nervous – and I just hope that folks don’t get bored silly..

    Gn5. I am so impressed that you have written an Opus. Really looking forward to it

  52. RockyLives says:

    While reading a story about Marcel Desailly urging Bale to leave the Spuds, I spotted a link to Smudger Smith’s “North London XI of the season.”

    I remember he did it a few weeks before the end of the season.

    His North London XI included 8 Spuds and just 3 Goons.

    What is it with all these ex-Arsenal types writing us off all the time and talking us down?

    (The only Arse players in his team were Santi, Jack and Theo).

  53. RockyLives says:

    Smudger’s North London XI centre back pairing was Dawson and Caulker…

    Better than BFG/Kozzer? My arse!

    He took the entire Spud back 5 over ours.

    In the final EPL table: Arsenal’s goals conceded: 37
    Spud goals conceded: 46

    It just echoes what someone said earlier: almost all these pundits and “experts” are idiots (apart from St Gary of Neville, right evonne? ๐Ÿ™‚ )

  54. evonne says:

    Amen Rocky ๐Ÿ™‚

  55. Red Arse says:

    10 more Posts needed – less one each from Rasper and Peaches = 8.

    8 Posts needed – less 4 ‘votey’ ones, that leaves 4.

    4 Posts needed – less 1 each from GoonerB, Kelsey, Terry Syrup and Evonne, leaves 0.

    I’m already missing my BR PMs… this would be one last fix before the start of next season.

    And I’m sure you could link it to Arsenal somehow…

  59. RockyLives says:

    Saw these stats on another site. Quite interesting:

    4 โ€“ Arsenal were the only team to have four players score at least 10 goals. These were Theo Walcott (14), Santi Cazorla (12), Olivier Giroud (11) and Lukas Podolski (11).

    4 โ€“ Santi Cazorla was the only player to record 4 assists in a single game. The Spaniard set up all 4 of Arsenalโ€™s goals in their 4-1 thrashing of Wigan Athletic in their penultimate game of the season.

    5 โ€“ Arsenal were recipients of the most red cards (5). However, the Gunners received the fewest yellow cards (42).

    7 โ€“ Arsenal scored the most goals from counter attacks. Norwich City were the only side not to score on a break away.

    20 โ€“ Theo Walcottโ€™s goal on 20 seconds in Arsenalโ€™s 1-0 victory at Queens Park Rangers on 4 May was the quickest goal scored this season and the quickest Arsenal goal in Premier League history.

    23 โ€“ Lukas Podolski was subbed off more times than any other player. The German forward in his debut Premier League season with Arsenal only played 90 minutes on two occasions in the Premier League in 25 of his starts.

    32 โ€“ Arsenalโ€™s Olivier Giroud had the most headed efforts on goal this season. The French striker scored with 4 of those 32 headed efforts.

    58.2% โ€“ Arsenal averaged the highest possession over 90 minutes over the course of the season.

    100% โ€“ Arsenal (11) and Swansea City (5) were the only sides to win all of their games in which they led at half-time.

    1,035 โ€“ Santi Cazorla completed the most passes in the final third โ€“ 262 more than David Silva who was second on the list.

    2,517 โ€“ Arsenalโ€™s Mikel Arteta completed the most passes. The Spaniard had a 92% completion rate, higher than Manchester Unitedโ€™s Michael Carrick who was the only player to attempt more passes than the Arsenal midfielder.

    3,258 โ€“ Santi Cazorla made more touches of the football than any other player.
