Finished 2nd twice in the previous 4 seasons, Ronaldo chose us over anyone else last summer, brought in one of the most highly rated managers outside the Premier league.

But yeah, reputation in tatters

Finished 2nd twice in 4 seasons, is that where we're at now? Is this what we are bigging up.

No wonder you were a huge ole cheerleader.

Standards on the floor.....

Nobody is bigging it up mate, but we haven’t turned into Burnley overnight. We’re still the biggest club in the world, we have the biggest player in the world, and we now have the best young manager in the world.

We’re going places, but no CL football is going to be a big hurdle to overcome this summer. The best players want to play in the best competitions, not just for football reasons but also commercial ones.

Not surprising we’ve gone to an extreme here and are now saying he’ll sign for ANY club in the CL.

He’s at one of the biggest clubs in the world and in the CL. It’s an understandable reluctance when he’d be coveted by other teams, I’m sure.

‘Convincing’ someone shouldn’t have to mean begging them. The reality is we’re at our lowest ebb in 30 years. Players aren’t going to crawl to us like they used to. If we want top players, they’re probably going to need their arm twisting. Provided we’re not just throwing money at the problem like Di Maria, Sanchez etc, then I’ve got no issue with ETH selling the ‘project’ a little. We had the sell ourselves to him too and he didn’t arrive without questions.

This doesn’t feel like some mercenary coming here for a big pay day after they’re past their best. This is a player whose next move is going to dictate where he plays his prime years. Ofcourse he’s going to have reservations about not playing in the CL.

If these rumours about agreeing a fee with Barca are correct, you’d at least think we’d have some sort of encouragement from FDJ’s

Youre right man, but we have to accept our standing has taken a hit.

As Dr City says though, interesting we are close to agreeing a fee despite FDJs uncertainty. Would be class if this was announced next week.

If he doesn’t want to be here f*** him. Begging players to take pity on them is the Arsenal way.

Only just noticed that this lad is called 'Frenkie' and not 'Frankie'.

Most 'interesting' development in this 'saga' for me.

Getting spammed by 90% of the squad should convince him to join.

Music to our ears.

“Yeah, he doesn’t absolutely hate the idea quite as much as he did a few days ago, so well done there lads. If we work at this for a few weeks we could possibly have him down to completely indifferent about the move very soon”
