    The players around Ceballos at Madrid are going to boost his stats, he won’t have such luxury at Arsenal.

    It does look our best midfield line-up since Hoddle and Ardiles were at their pomp (although 2016-17 season Dembele, Dier, Wanyama and Winks was pretty impressive).

    I can't see us ever signing a player on loan without an option to buy. We know that Poch takes his time to incorporate players and that it can take them six months to settle into our system. It would be a lot of wasted effort with potentially little reward.

    Levy always declared that he never would agree to such terms either. But I think we may have broken that once (I can't remember who with, maybe Frazer Campbell?)

    I can understand this move if its about cash flow - if they feel they can afford a midfielder next year and / or a player needs another year in development before being ready its a half decent idea. If its just desperation to build up the numbers its such a bad deal, no forward thinking.

    Here's hoping it goes as well as their Denis Suarez deal.

    If he’s good he improves Goons temporarily and then breaks their hearts by rejoining Madrid and we all laugh at them.

    If he’s brick he may have to play a minimum number of games and we all laugh at them.

    Whatever happens short term fixes rarely work

    It reminds me of when we signed Mido

    Mido was a good signing. 18 months year leading the line with Keane, and 1 year as a decent back-up option to Berbatov.

    Not disagreeing but it was a case of desperation as we couldn’t buy anyone

    We still had Kanoute at the time, so it was initially a fairly low risk back-up (4th striker, as we had Keane and Defoe too). It was to Mido's credit that he displaced Kanoute as our main #9.

    Well Kanoute fell out of favour for young to the AFCON

    Changing nationalities a couple of months after we signed him which meant we’d lose him for a month at the busiest time of the season. Loved him as a player, but the club were correct to be tinkled off at that.

    Still reckon we would have made it to 4th that season with Kanoute. So much play went through him under Jol.

    He could chest a ball better than most players could trap it, and higher than most could head it
