Barse-Arca : What's next?

Post by Mark V » Sun, 24 Jun 2007 05:19:20


Barcelona. Will they be able to keep each of Messi, Henry, Eto'o, and
Ronaldinho happy? Are they done dealing? Goalscoring doesn't really
seem to have been a problem for them.

Arsenal. They can't and won't try to "replace" Henry. They'll
obviously need help at striker. What wil their strategy be? Use some
of the money to bring in a big goalscoring gun? Continue to acquire
prospects and start baptizing by fire some of them?

What does this mean for Reyes? Will Arsenal try to keep him? Use him
as bait for an older, established striker? Can they find anyone who
will take him at their high asking price?

Arsenal won't sign anyone as they can't afford to. They didnt buy
anyone when Vieira left so why would it be any different this time?
Henry's transfer fee will be absorbed back into the club to help pay
off some of the debt. Maybe Fabregas will go next summer too to try
and pay off some of the debt? Arsenal can't buy anyone as they don't
have the money and anyone they sell will be to try and repay the debt.

In euros, I've heard anywhere from 14 to 22 million.

million quid

Based on what I've read, I predict he'll go to a Spanish team for well
over three, but quite a bit less than the nine they paid for him a few
years back.

Arsenal have spent some money over the last few years, on Hleb, Rosicky,
Adebayor, Van Persie, Diaby etc.

If they avoid too many injuries next year, they should still do very
well.  They did OK this past year with Henry and Van Persie both out for
extended periods, as well as injuries to Gallas and others.

With the money from Reyes and Henry, they should be able to strenghten
the squad a bit as well, without breaking the bank.

So you think they'll have enough to hold off Spurs for the 4th place?

Still Henry like Overmars and Petit to
Barcheatalona is not a godd sign
for the departed.

I would think that they would have enough, unless they have a bad year
with injuries (particularly Kolo Toure and Gilberto Silva, who are
pretty crucial), or Spurs are particularly lucky with injuries.

In spite of spending a great deal of money (Berbatov, Chimbonda,
Huddlestone ?, Zokora) , Spurs lost ground vs. Arsenal last season, and
never challenged for a CL place at all, in spite of all the predictions
that they would.

I think Arsenal will only be in grave danger of dropping out of the
top 4 if they fail to make signings, or don't make the right ones.
After all, Henry only managed 12 league goals last season and Arsenal
still came 4th, so as long as Arsenal sign an striker who can score 12
goals next season, then they will have matched Henry's performance
from last year. Of course that's not to say that Henry wouldn't have
scored 25 goals next season, but we're talking about what's needed for
Arsenal to come 4th, and 12 goals was all Henry made to that cause
last season. As for Spurs, they finished 8 points behind Arsenal last
season, so if anything they need to raise their level quite a bit,
which is no given. They must also hope that Arsenal don't improve on
their total from last season, which by most accounts, is pretty
sub-standard for them, and they are probably capable of a pts total
that's well into the 70s.

If Van Persie stays healthy all season he will score those 12 goals all
by himself and anything brought by a new signing is a bonus.

  then they will have matched Henry's performance
