Fellaini. really?

Agree1 Disagree2

04 Jun 2018 14:01:46
Wouldn't happen.

04 Jun 2018 14:11:52
Xhaka or Felliani?
I'd take Felliani personally, physical and always a threat in the box even though a long way from world class.
We've signed many worse, in fact we still have many worse.

04 Jun 2018 15:20:39
How about we sign a whole squad of over 30 players and be in the same position next summer? Come on. If we are going to sign a CM, CDM, or any position for that matter, then he needs to be under 29 in my opinion. I would rather see Emery stick with Xhaka and see what he can do with the players we have then spend money on aging players. Unless they're world class and I mean 'WORLD' class. Free transfers are different again. If it improves the squad and gives us other options then that's fine.

I think fitting Ramsey and Ozil on the team at the same time has been a problem so far to our DM persuit in the market.
The solution has been putting Ramsey on a double pivot with Xhaka, but that way there's no room left for other player.
We can drop Xhaka, but if we're leads for some reports, Unai is very keen on him. Personally, I wouldn't drop him either.
So Fellaini make sense to me: a physical presence, EPL experienced and for free, to alternate or be used when thw situation warrants it.
Also, save us a lot of money, alowing to invest it in a GK or an expensive winger solution.

04 Jun 2018 16:45:09
If he is the only signing, then its a worry, if he is one of 5 or 6 then great signing to give us some power in the squad. He has been a thorn in our side more than enough times.

04 Jun 2018 16:48:06
I take Felliani also, option for the long ball up front and for some steel in midfield

Suspensions a plenty no doubt.

04 Jun 2018 17:38:49
When Arsene first came to us we were the red card kings Banbury mate, but we were winning red card kings all the same mate :-)

04 Jun 2018 18:09:26
The same set of fans who criticse (d) Mourinho for using Fellaini would now like to 'hit it long, use his physicality and add steel' couldn't make it up🤣🤣.

04 Jun 2018 18:45:20
18 18 your team has mour than its fair share of gourillas, one wouldn't do us any harm.

04 Jun 2018 18:54:03
I would echo Steve’s thoughts although he won’twant to swap his Man U squad player status with an arsenal squad player status.

04 Jun 2018 19:38:59
It took man city with all their money how many years to get from 8th to top 4?
We aren't skint but we don't have their money obviously, yes we will need to take free agents, over 30s plus bargin buys to turn us around simply because we most certainly are not just one or two players away, it's a major rebuild that if done well can be done relatively quickly (2 years minimum) and without billions but we can't simply magic money out of nowhere to replace all our underachieving players with the best in the business.
It won't take forever but it can't be done in a single window either, with or without billions to spend.

04 Jun 2018 21:31:21
Yeh the worst one Steve, he is an awful awful player, trust me you'd rather not have him at Arsenal, banter player!

04 Jun 2018 22:12:12
Have you seen our midfield? Hard to see how he could make it worse.

04 Jun 2018 22:47:09
Fellaini is utter pants, if we are going to buy a gorilla at least buy a quality one! 🙄.

05 Jun 2018 00:04:31
I'll drive him up to London in the back of the transit, just pay me for the diesel 😀.

05 Jun 2018 06:52:57
18 18

I’ve always favoured the long ball when tip tap doesn’t work, it will give a plan B st least.

05 Jun 2018 08:29:28
I wonder what the man u fans would have thought of us signing Kante Simpson Morgan Vardy and Mahrez 3 summers back?
I'm pretty sure they'd have given us stick in June but been a bit more noticeable by their abcents in May.
Anymore can waste 100s millions on players and turn them into 10s of millions worth of talent that is capable of winning a Europa league trophy a fantastic cup and a league cup by playing snooze time football, but it takes a little more thinking about and a lot more talent to assemble aside capable of winning big trophies and entertaining people along the way.
Felliani or Pogba at utd? What's the difference?

05 Jun 2018 10:18:50
62 the difference is one gives 100% and gets stuck in and seems to care.
The other trots around like a show pony.

05 Jun 2018 12:17:02
I can understand if the likes of Maitland-Niles was pushed down the midfield pecking order if we bought in a top class CDM, but what kind of message would it say if we bought in Fellani ahead of him, even if it was for one or two seasons? Also Leahy12, genuine question, which one of your description is Fellani?

05 Jun 2018 13:14:44
Pogba is a show pony.

05 Jun 2018 13:24:33
Not sure he offers anything we should be interested in - long ball = no, unskillful = no, not a true CDM = no. tall lanky person who gets in the way - no need in our team. Let’s sign quality - old or young but not just anyone because they are free

05 Jun 2018 15:05:09
Ha ha thanks for confirming Leahry, I have to confess show pony is a good description! My confusion was because you originally said you would happily drive Fellani down to us for the price of the diesel, but then you appeared to favorably compare him to Pogba. So my next question to you is, how low an opinion do you have of Pogba, a player who from a neutral perspective hasn't lived anywhere near his transfer fee, but who is still seems a very decent player, no?

05 Jun 2018 15:29:59
I'd rather keep fellani as a squad player cause he will give his all, effective when you need a bit of bite, in the last ten minutes if you need to defend a lead, good in his own box defending corners free kicks etc. good in opposition box might nick you a goal.
I'd take a big transfer fee for the show pony this minute.

05 Jun 2018 17:31:12
Interesting. He really is an enigma, as he can show signs of absolute brilliance followed by total dross or indifference all within minutes of each other. For me, for those times when he is on fire, I think i would gamble and just build the midfield around him, play to his ego, and make him the star pony, and see what happens (although of course that's probably why i am not a manager of a football team! )
