Sack Unai Emery in January 2020 ...

Every manager and his dog "knew" about Arsenal so-called £45m player transfer funds.


But if we amortise this summer player transfer fees over 5-year period, theoretically, we have 45 x 5 = £225m transfer funds.


That is, to comply with FFP, we will only budget £45m for FY2019 player transfer expenditures.


But the problem is that all our rivals knew this as well. And why Tint Totts are doing is forcing us to pay more upfront for Saliba if we are keen on him.

Every club can out-bid us by simply offer to pay more than £45m upfront to force us out of the bidding.


And I doubt very much we can sign any players whose price range is above £45m with sellers demanding payment upfront.


And so, Emery is forced to look for bargains in the £25m range and no more.


Conclusion?

We will not look for another experienced CB.

Sallehi will instruct Emery to develop HIS team to improve from last season or else.

1 - Sokratis
2 - Mustafi
3 - Holding
4 - Monreal
5 - Chambers
6 - Mavropanos
7 - Medley

DEFENCE leaked 5 goals with MIDFIELD being the primary culprit for not shielding Back-4.
We should see a better MIDFIELD and should leak less than 51 goals this season.

And this is the Top-6 team for 2019/20 season with a 50:50 chance of sneaking into Top-4 with both Chelski and ManU in transition.

And we hope Tiny Totts will start to unravel with their marque players demanding a boost in salary, re-structuring their defence and of course, with Eriksen leaving and Son, Kane and Alii hitting a wall due to lack of incentives and frustrating of another trophyless season yet again.

It will be criminal if Emery cannot capitalise on Tiny Totts' perennial slipups.

Most of you said to give Emery a 2nd season.
SO he will and please, no lame excuse as he cannot buy players. Just get on with this bunch and improve on their team-works and score more goals than last season.

Sack him in January 2020 if we out out of Top-4 race by December 2019.

And guys, that was what I meant by amortisation.
And kudos to Raul for taking full advantage of it to pay by instalments and still stay within that 45-mil budget.

The Emirates board then broke the bank on a £72m deal for Nicolas Pepe, with Arsenal stumping up an initial £20m with the difference being paid in instalments over the next five years.
A summer-long pursuit of Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney finally ended on deadline day as the Scotland international joined for £25m - but that wasn’t the end of it.
In a shock revelation, David Luiz wanted to move from Chelsea to Arsenal and got his deal over the line just in time for £8m.

Arsenal net spend - summer 2019
Incomings: £138m (Martinelli, Saliba, Pepe, Tierney, Luiz)
Outgoings: £54.5m (Ospina, Bielik, Asano, Koscielny, Iwobi)
Net spend: £118.5m
The fees are full sums including add-ons and not taking into account amortisation

Merlion, not many clubs are paying full transfer fees upfront unless they trigger the buyout clause of an unwilling seller like Neymar to PSG.

Do you really think Man Utd gave Leicester £80m upfront for Maguire? The negotiations wouldn't take so long if that was the case.

The media are only reporting about our instalments because they were all dead wrong about our £45m transfer spend. That's a good way for them to save face so we keep believing what they write in future.

Basically for once, Stan allowed the club to spend for reasons unknown. But it means Emery is under massive pressure as now results will be expected. This is the way big clubs like Arsenal should operate.

That is correct.
Least we forget, there is a massive debt burden due about now for those amortisation purchase starting in 2013 with Ozil, Mustafi, Xhaka, Lacazette, Aubameyang, Leno and Torreira that will eat into out finance for the next 3 seasons which can only be paid off by selling one 30-mil plus player per season.

Now, you understand why Arsene Wenger turned a profit virtually every season by buying and selling players to help to finance Emirates Debt then via amortisation and selling marquee players every season; Fabregas being the last.
Adebayor, Nasri and Van Persie were forced sales with them threatening to rundown their contract.

And why SIlent Stan is still imposing that self-sustainable model even on Raul and Venkat.

Yeah but raul and venkat have done a better job at getting rid of players we don't need. Unlike chsmakh and bendtner and co. who just sat here doing nothing

Certainly. Job half-done.
Let's hope he can move Elneny and Mustafi by 2 September.

One surprise may be that Raul may be able to move Kolasinac this month as he has better resale value than Monreal.

Plus, perhaps move Xhaka and Mkhitaryan by Jan 2020 or summer 2020 with new crop of youngsters moving into senior squad.

Monreal is on his last leg and we need to buy a back-up to Teirney during Jan 2020.

More drama before all transfer windows are closed.

How does £138m - £54m = £118m
