Good point. Certainly a lot easier logistically than planning trips to Cardiff. The only consideration being Chelsea and Fulham fixtures, they can't both have home games scheduled for the same day as Stamford Bridge is in Fulham not Chelsea.

It’s not just that though, it’s the knock in effect it has for the other London clubs lower down etc

even with david brooks injuries the kid has everything you want in a premier league footballer, natural balance, great vision, can play with both feet.

 

I can see a number of clubs looking to buy him, if chilwell was sold, he would be the first player I would move for with the money left over.

Arsenal = Chelsea rejects   :P

 

 

 

Why don't they all have a squad photo together in their dressing room to celebrate, only to see him go to the MLS and they end up with Aaron Lennon.

Ridiculous that they're making 55 people redundant but offering Aubameyang around £250/350K a week and looking at signing Willian etc. 

 

FA should start to make legislations that if jobs are being cut, the club has shackles on how they are able to carry out transfer business.

Yeah really poor for a big club to be doing this. I'd be really disappointed if we followed suit

Without knowing the details it's difficult, redundancy can only apply if the position is no longer required etc but it appears terrible. Imagine being a member of staff in a normal role, office, marketing or shop etc earning £25/30k a year and you're made redundant at the same time they're offering Aubameyang £250k a week.

Sky and Kaveh Solekhol in particular showing faux concern. "How can we talk about huge transfers when people are being made redundant?"

 

Please, spare me this bollocks. Maybe the fact large fees and wages are paid contributes to this happening?

Whilst you're right we don't know the finer details, but it isn't a good look to be announcing redundancies when it's known the money they're offering to players.

Might want to stay in London?

Maybe. Arsenal still carrying on buying attacking players when their defence needs a massive upgrade

We can only dream of signing a player like Willian

 

Not sure if you being sarcastic or not lol but 37 goals in 264 Premier League games for a top club like Chelsea. His highest league tally is 9 goals. Ayoze Perez had 12 for Newcastle in 18/19. 

 

No thanks. 

 

I'm surprised he even lasted at Chelsea for so long.

Same as Chelsea.

Arsenal have a billionaire owner and yet some quarters of the football media are singling out  Aubameyang and Ozil for thiese redundancies.

Man City not messing around in the transfer window then now ake for 41m as well as the guy from valencia. Would think they would be in for at least one more defender and a striker still

It's not just about goals now is it? The fact that he's had 264 games for Chelsea tells you all you need to know about his quality not to mention the games for Brazil.  Next you'll be saying just because he plays for Brazil doesn't mean he's any good.

 

Sure he's aging now but he's still way out of our league to sign up.

I think the extended season for Man Utd, Wolves and to a.lesser extent Chelsea (who are all but out) will severely impact next season for each. 

 

Although they'll get a delayed season start, mentally the players won't be rested. Our lads have three  weeks solid R&R now (whatever form of r&r is for some of the lads) and switch off. 

 

Meanwhile Maguire and co are seeing out a 5-0 win in an empty stadium
