This gives up depth to our squad which we need if we want to challenge for multiple competitions.Anyone know how much we got him for?

Baffled by this.f*ck knows how and where he's gonna play.
Him in our team = more depth. He's already played for the French team.Who would you rather have Song or Diarra?? He's a good player, Chelsea will see what they've lost soon enough.

Pointless IMOonly way i can read into it is that he is the long-term replacement for gilberto, if in midfield Diarra is what some suggest he is i.e a DM in the Makelele mouldgilberto seems to have gone down in wengers estimation considering he is 3rd choice to captain the side and a 24yr old toure is prefered to him.No doubt diarra will be a big player in futurebut a winger should have been our number priority right now im so pissed

Its apparently 5m, which is crazy for a player who's contract was gonna run out in January.TBH If we had signed a winger then Diarra I'd be more happy about the signing.Right now this just cuts Denilson's, Hoyte's, Song's & Flamini's possible playing time.

Big signing....MUCH rather have him play as the holding player than Diaby, Song OR FlaminiPlus can play RB which pleases me because now Eboue is a confirmed starting RW...Still peeved about not left winger but I think Eduardo can and should play there for now because Adeebayor adds another dimension to our attack...

One of them 'Sign him cos he's available' buys.I like him, he's a good player but so unnecessary.Although with that said he's better than Flamini and much better than Song.I wanted to see Denilson and Diaby getting more games this season though.

He has a HAMMER HEADGood player, WENGER knows why he signed him. He is versatile, but another CM, Hmm.If there was a winger who we could realistically signed, i'm sure Wenger would have. Out and Out winger i would be nice but it's not the be all and end all.
