Strikers

Posted by VA10 almost 4 years ago · 157 replies

I was thinking about the lack of strikers today. Is there a striker like Aguero, Suearez or Lewandowski available? Even Benzema isn't as good as them in my opinion.

TIL half a season is 26 games and scoring 20 goalsAtm everyone at Chelsea are shit, they'll pick it up sooner or later and leave us in the dust along with City

Why so negative about Arsenal?? We were expected not to finish in top 4 if first half last year and then we almost got the second one. #positive-vibes mate

Being linked to someone by a degenerate on twitter doesn't mean anything. If you think United would have passed on a striker of Benzema's calibre this Summer, then let's end the discussion here.

If that's your argument (that they are automatically interested in anything that breathes), why didn't they get:

  • Pedro
  • De Bruyne
  • Martinez
  • Vidal

...etc?

This thread has now gone on for page after page and you still don't understand the difference between wanting something and being able to afford something. You are essentially saying that no amount of money would have priced Benzema away from Real Madrid, which is laughable.

Arsenal could have signed Benzema this summer, but they didn't. Fact. Whether it was because Wenger didn't think he'd fit into our system, or if he simply didn't want to spend £60m+, who knows. But it's one of those reasons, and no other.

Uhm... They went for Pedro but he told LVG to fuck off? De Bruyne went to City (far more resources and better chance at starting there, they've had shit for wingers) Vidal went to Bayern who seem like a better club to join then United?? And United bought Bastian. I mean come on you're making me explain 2+2s here...

HE WAS NOT FOR SALE! If in your fantasy you can offer 200 million pounds for Benzema then fine he would have been sold. But back in the real world he, he simply was not for sale.

Everyone should always support their own whilst their playing & never abuse them

That doesn't mean they're not immune to criticism.

Benzema wasn't for sale. You love me.

So according to that logic, none of the players on the planet that stayed at their clubs were for sale. Only if they move clubs they were for sale. Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Zidane, Figo...they were all for sale, because they moved clubs.

Neither Ronaldo nor Bale were sold because the money was good. They were sold by their respective clubs because the players wanted to move, they wanted to move really bad.
