  2. Why doesn’t this website do the right thing and save us from time wasting? Its obvious to an idiot that Dortmund price player to hinder them leaving coz no one will pay £25m yet we are offered this to waste our time.

    • We only focus on doing proper & accurate reporting. You blame us and not Arsenal for putting up a ridiculous offer of 15m for such a talented defender? Sigh!!!

  3. Sometimes you can barely figure out on which information to follow. The press always has a way with conflicting report, even when the report holds no waters. It is high time to give managers a space for them to do their business in their own way
