Maybe it was another player but 99% sure it was Saliba, will listen again and report back.
Pretty sure it was Saliba too, blogs reaction made it really odd. Phillipes got the goods and he didn’t want to share
It was actually Pepe, start at 25 minutes I listen on 2x speed and I could even hear the awkwardness on the original play through. Really strange.
He says that it’s weirdly structured and then won’t go into it.
He’s paid in shares of Flamini’s environmental company
Probably a good deal for him!
Transfer ban over a player that didn’t play a minute for the club would be classic Arsenal
It was for Pepe not Saliba I was wrong. But, as a result I don’t have as many worries.
Your own namesake!
I was close they transitioned right into Saliba immediately after the awkwardness.
He probably didn’t want to get into the Pepe deal because of the technical explanation and Phillipe realized that he was wandering off point. Wasn’t it reported at the time that a private equity/debt firm was involved?
Lille wanted all of the money up front, Arsenal wanted to pay in installments? So a firm got involved to give Lille the funds up front for a fee/percentage.
Ex: Transfer fee Arsenal pays is £73 million over 5 years
Arsenal pays Lille £20 million up front, third party firm pays Lille £43 million = £63 million total
Firm receives payments from Arsenal over next 4 years totaling £53 million
Firm makes £10 million on a £43 million “loan” to Lille
I am making up the numbers but you get the idea
Not understanding how this is even remotely complicated or off task per the discussion. Pretty sure we all own something like this.
He wanted to talk about William Saliba and said he didn’t want to get sidetracked talking about the structure of the Pepe deal? When he realized it sounded awkward, he said “Nothing illegal, just complicated and unusual.”
I didn’t get that but I see your point.
Lmao at the jersey selection.
Everyone on the Legends Tour pointed at his stall, laughed & walked past... I couldn’t resist
I know Wu hates FUT but they released a new set of cards today for their icons (retired legends/icons) where they pick a specific moment or match for each of the icons and they get boosted stats.
They introduced it last year but I find it interesting to see which moment they choose for each guy so thought I’d share the Arsenal ones that I could find on YouTube
Feel free to guess if you’d like before checking the spoiler.
The ones they chose for Vieira and Jens weren’t Arsenal moments
Had to double take on this one since he had 2 hat tricks against Southampton that season
Can’t find Petit goal vs Derby County from 97-98 but that was his.
I was unaware that your hatred went so deep you opposed posting old Arsenal highlight clips if they had any relation to FUT.
your subversive tactics have been noted
Feels like it’s been a while
sounds like the weather is terrible.
It is miserable
Which one did you get?
Meat pies are the best. By far the best thing I ate when I went over there a few years ago.
To be fair, the bar isn’t very high on English food
To be fair, lot of great food spots in London. I’d go all out on good Indian and Israeli/ middle eastern food if I were there.
Oh there are plenty of good places you can eat in London, I just meant what you would call “English food”
I can’t disagree. Touché
Like everything about it except Nketiah over Martinelli. Hope we can finally win a damn game.
Holding not even on the bench.
If you didn’t know any better you’d think we just got a new manager
I had the Henry (Venison & wine) & the wife had the Bergkamp (chicken & leek)
Ceballos comes out of the wilderness rocking a tiny top knot
we’ve ruined him
Back heel steal
okay he’s allowed to keep it
Smart play there.
Xhaka in a nutshell, his good qualities overshadowed by being a complete moron
No idea how we haven’t conceded yet.
When’s the team get back from Dubai?
Just need 5 new players and we’re gonna be getting somewhere
Crowd isn't helping things
