Arteta leaving!....I can hardly remember what it's like to have him playing :( For all we know his injury could be worse than we thought! even if he gets back, he may not be quite as good as before the injury.

Plan for life ( certainly for the next couple of months) without him, were already used to him not being there.....then just HOPE he makes it back, and is as good as before.

Watching clips of him on youtube (was he really that good) remind you what were missing.

BUT!.....he's not playing at the moment, we have to win without him, we have to replace him, in case the worst happens :(

Pienaar's almost as good, without perhaps the free kick majic....oh and the never missed a penalty in the prem thing.

PLUS I think Goslings the new Arteta :rolleyes:

Come on fellas, I think this is a bit OTT. Apart from the fact that Arteta wouldn't leave for City in a million, these comments are rather overstating what we all think of our treasured Spaniard. He 'is' good, very good, but so is Pienaar. On balance, over the last two years, I have thought we were a better side with both of them playing. When they are not together, I think we are more penetrative with Pienaar alone, than Arteta alone. This is not to say I think that Pienaar is a superior player as that is absurd. I just think that Pienaar tends to bring in the fullbacks more and creates more movement from the midfield and strikers, where Arteta is more of magician. I also think Pienaar is more consistent, as is his workrate and tracking back. I wouldn't want to lose either and value each to the team equally. Value wise, Arteta 3 times Pienaar, I think not, and if we don't have a contract for Pienaar sewn up before the world cup, we might see some silly offers for Pienaar.

Out of curiosity, what would you value Arteta at currently?

I think if a club wanted to buy him they would expect to pay around £20-25 mil. However i don't think you can put a price on him in terms of what he brings to our squad as a player and as a person, seems a top guy from things he's said. I wouldn't want to say something ridiculous like £60mil but i really wouldn't want to sell him no matter what the offer, can see him staying here for his career. :D

I don't think it is. Obviously when we're without both of them we look terrible, but if Pienaar's out and Arteta's playing I don't lose too much confidence in the ability of the team to win. If Pienaar's playing but Arteta's out then I lose a bit of that confidence - for me, while Pienaar works hard he gives the ball away far too much for someone with the amount of talent he has.

Well let's hope Cesc doesn't go back to Barcelona. With that though, as good as Mikel is, would he be a suitable replacement? I'd have thought they might have gone for somebody younger and up and coming...

but if you lose someone of Cescs calibre, you want to be able to replace him with someone of a similar ability who could just 'slip' into the team, and with Arteta's now valuable experience within the prem, it makes perfect sense having Arteta as his replacement. Aresnal couldnt afford to lose Fabregas, to someone who 'might' have potential, they'd need results nearly instantly. :)

But what i mean is dude, which other premier league player could Arsenal realisticaly look at? Taking into account Arteta's experience and adaptability. I realise he isn't to the same level as Cesc but getting someone from abroad might be a high risk, and Arteta is seen as a safe option?

If Fabregas can't displace Xavi, Iniesta or Busquets in the Spain midfield what makes him think he can do it at Barca?

They can if they sell cesc first, that's the whole point of the link to arteta, as a replacement, so whatever fabregas goes for arteta will be worth about 2/3rd's of that so arsenal could afford him.

Arteta is not a like for like replacement for Fabregas and Wenger of all people would understand that. Arteta plays a MUCH deeper game. He simply wouldn't give Wenger the goals from midfield that he'd need.

Wenger would be more likely to look at someone like Pjanic tbh.

That said it's not completely beyond the realms of possibility that he'd sign both Arteta and one of the many highly rated young midfielders about. But still very unlikely.

I think Arteta will stay this summer as he fully recovers form his injury. However if has another brilliant season and we don't make 4th I think he will leave, and I wouldn't blame him. He deserves to play at the highest level.

Im not that worried to be honest. Knowing professional players they tell me how agents & clubs use SSN for their advantage. For example if a player is not getting the deal he wants what better way to advertise him than make a call to SSN & let them know there is a problem in contract talks. Other clubs hear this then make enquiries about the player making his current club come up with something to avoid him going somewhere else.

Its all a game in a way.

Arsenal can afford him, they are one of not many clubs who actually make money. They have had the money to spend on players for years, they just dont spend it. Besides, they would get a lot of money for Cesc, enought to buy Arteta.

How much do you reckon we'd get for him? £15m?

That would go a long way towards buying Moutinho!
