I can't stand this team continually selling to league rivals. 24m is a lot of money to turn down, but I thought this time Arsenal was finally going to show some balls.

Alex Song also came in to say goodbyes to teammates today. He is also off to Barca. What a radical change.

I think Arsenal never wanted to give Song contract extension based on inside information on his age, and have sold a 34yrs Old dude to Barca. Arsenal overused him in the last 2 yrs and got their money worth. RVP has been replaced by Giroud and Poldi, the only question is can they adapt to BPL. If yes, we just sold 1 for 2.

2 new players need to be brought in if Song is indeed off to Barca.

If he doesn't want to play for us, good riddance. By the way, how do you know all that about Song, Arseniger? What are your sources?

24 mil for a 29 year old who has been injured for a majority of his career and has only had one 1 good fully fit season?! Unless he recreates last seasons efforts for the rest of his career for us you fellas have prospectively pulled our pants down in front of the world.

You have signed genuine world class in Santi, hes like a world class version of Arshavin so he will soften the blow of RVP. Not sure about Giroud and Podolski although both have qualitys. With regards to Song hough i never rated him, despite being worshipped on here. I take it he's now only half decent now hes leaving then?

This is a lateral move for Robin Van Persie and one that screams of desperation for Fergie. Best of luck to both of them.
