    I heard it was Flamini, I'll try to find the link in a minute. Personally i would of done the deal because I think we have more than enough options in the midfield and outside back that are better than Flamini. But, Wenger is the man and I'll trust his judgement.

    Ultimately I think Wenger was right to turn this down, though we desperately need another attacking player, and while it's Arsenal's way to surprise, I am somewhat perturbed by the lack of movement (though I've heard rumors of an £8m offer for Obafemi Martins, which may get it done).

    Adriano is really bloody talented, but has some substance issues. He's a big party boy and literally the last place you want someone who spends too much time hanging out in the clubs of Milan is London. Internazionale have been more than accommodating to Adriano and they're at the end of their tether now - Jermaine Pennant got shitcanned for far less.

    He'd be a very good bet for a club in a boring area with a taskmasker (Sunderland) but he'll probably end up at West Ham, since they're the ones running the Premiership's local lunatic asylum.

    Hmm, we had a fat Brazilian "goal machine" last year. What was his name again? :rolleyes:

    Oh yes, the guy who was outscored by a defensive midfielder. Hmm.

    The rumor I read from a couple of sites was that they wanted Rosicky.

    No thank you.
