What would you ask?

Posted by James Dall on 9, May 2008

Hello all. It has been flippin’ ages since I last posted; however I thought now was as good as time as any to spring to the fore.

In essence, I am hoping to pick your footballing brains.

Next week, I am off to interview Patrick Vieira before heading to the Nike’s Cesc Fabregas Show, where I hope to get time with the Spaniard and possibly Arsene Wenger, and a few others.

I already have a number of questions swimming around my head, but I wanted to gauge your desires, thoughts and musings.

If you were in my nervous shoes, what would you ask?

(Reflections on this season, the next and Euro 2008 are the sorts of areas I wish to explore).

Post your comments below, and I will jot down the crackers and field them to the stars.

Thanks in advance.

    ask cesc if hes seen rumours on the net that he may be the next captain and if he would like the captaincy

    if you get arsene you could ask who we’re signing would be a good one. also will he be replacing flamini and hleb (if he goes) with 2 new signings to add to the signings hes already said he was trying to get

  2. rico said

    PV – is life really that much better in Italy, or does he regret deep down leaving our club?

  3. why do arsenal never take other clubs or the press to court to stop this incessant tapping up of our players every summer?

  4. Teeleaf said

    Ask him what the hell is going on

  5. also please PLEASE ask him to go out & buy MICAH RICHARDS whatever the cost b4 the f****king chavs & mancs get him to purely stop us from having him!he fits the bill-stong,quick,experienced & right age-plus supports us-in fact a young sol campbell!!!

    what the problem is with most of our player nursing intentions to leave the club.

  7. I am not sure transfer targets will go down too well to be honest! Although, yes, Richards would be a stunning signing.

  8. sig said

    why can’t we hold on to our players???

    why are we cherry picked by the so-called “richer” clubs every year???

  9. sig said

    and why the 4% season ticket increase????

    why??? why??? why???

  10. JC said

    also why after 2 years of being in the new stadium which was built to help us compete financially with other clubs is’nt helping us compete financially, even after a season of record breaking profits

  11. AusGunner said

    Ask Arsene if he takes Flamini (and possibly Hleb)’s departures personally.

  12. Keegan (SA) said

    He would’nt divulge transfer targets!

    I would ask Wenger: With his current policies of not spending big, paying big and fielding youngsters is he not thinking about changing his policies as its NOT been successfull for 3 staright seasons? With Football in England now being about the big spenders and huge debts would it not make sense for the gunners to spend big money to keep up with the top 2 clubs who are?

    To Fabregas: How does he feel about his closest friends at the club leaving for money and not for the love of the club and football?

    Go the Gunners!

    Ask AW why Eboue is still in an Arsenal shirt. Also ask why we cant sign an experienced player to supplement the youth.

    Ask Cesc what was it like to carry Flamini and Hleb this season and would it be better for him to have a more solid player next to him and if he could choose who would it be? Also tell hom to use the old man u trick with beckham and ferdinand and ferdinand on hargreaves, and to tap up Ramos and Xavi telling them how amazing the club is and they should sign.

    Ask Arsene on whether he feels Robin Van Persie will ever play a full injury season and whether we may be wise to cash in on him now?

    Which incidently please dont get me wrong its just very frustrating!

  16. David M said

    Ask Vieira who and what he misses most about Arsenal.

    Ask Fabregas if he thinks he played better in the first half of the season or the second and why he thinks his goals dried up. Also ask him who he likes playing with most in the Spanish national team.

    Ask Wenger if he thinks anything more could be done with the Arsenal medical team to reduce the number of injuries we get. Also ask him for 2-3 names of Arsenal reserves / youths who are showing the most promise and might be in the first team in the next few seasons.

  17. Matthew Wade said

    To PV4 – What was the best team he’s ever played in? ie Inter now, Arse 04, Arse 02, Arse 98…

    To Cesc – What’s his best 11 (ie 1 for each position) of players he’s played with or against

    To AW – Would he ever consider hiring Tony Adams as a coach, or are they both too incined to stubborness to work together?!

  18. stonroy said

    Viera question: Why do you think Arsenal never seem to hold onto their top players (minus the great Bergkamp and Adams)and what do you think needs to be done from your history with leaving the club to make sure that the players who start their career with Arsenal end it there.

    Wenger question: Why do you think the newspapers seem to like to attack Arsenal FC and leave the other big four teams alone? The constant abuse that Fabregas gets to leave the club never seems to happen to any of the top players at the other top four..

    Hi mate,

    Are you back writing on this blog? I enjoyed your articles and with the amount of crap that is being written these days it is always good to read an intelligent view.

    why is wenger so mean ,is happy with his policy of leaving experienced players to go

  21. shaks said

    Hi Mate

    Ask Patrick.V: 1) Has he forgiven the club for letting him go? or does he understand it way the best move for both parties involved?

    2) Arsenal haven’t really replaced him – Cesc has compensated for going forward but arsenal miss the bite/tough tackling in the middle of the park? Who would he bring in? Yaya or Diarra (at pompy) or any other recomendations?

    3) And whether he can see him self having a role at arsenal in some capacity one day?

    Cesc: 1) Why do you think we lost the title this year? Transfer policy/ weak squad? Player unrest? Gasllas’s behaviour? Just not good enough? AW not tactically astute as the other three?

    2) Who would he like playing alongside him in midfield? And what does he think of flamini and (Helb) leaving?

    3) If Xavi was to leave Barca ( in an imaginary world) would he jump at the chance to go back to Barca?

    For A.W: 1) Why is his transfer policy so different to many clubs – in terms of why do we let so many go on a free? and why do we let our youngsters go on the cheap?

    2) When you are letting go of youngsters on the cheap ( I guess so that you dont hinder their progress?!),do you ever put a buy back clause or a sell on fee clause? Do you think that you should start to do that? Good examples are Pennant, Bentley, Larsson and Muamba.

    3) Are we going to lose out to spurs on most transfer targets because thay are willing to put the cash up first? and secondly where are sours getting the cash to buy all these players?

  22. Fabregas – Who’s the best player he’s played against in the Premiership? Who would he like to see in an Arsenal shirt?
    Vieira – No question, just tell him that he always will be an Arsenal legend. No Arsenal fans ever begrudge him leaving the club (if they do, then it shows a lack of respect), he done us proud over the years.

    Does Arsen think he is unsackable ?? if we go 4/5 years without winning league and champs league.

  24. Bravestar said

    oh yea, ask cesc if he asked the boss to buy his mate torres. and if not why not ? aparantley the boss gets approx at least 30 mill every season to spend, one or two quality buys would
    have seen us through our bad patch,

  25. HeGunner said

    Can u please ask Arsene Wenger why:
    1. Is our defense so porous and does not deem it fit to plug that gaping hole at the back with a tall capable centre half?
    2. Is our squad so thin on the ground that when an important player e.g Sagna last season the defense was not the same again and started our downward match towards 3rd position in the premeirship.
    3. He must by all means ensure TH14 does not join Manure.
