Alexis Sánchez


#2451

Like most footballers they love the adoration of the supporters, especially the supporters that are paying his wages.
If he does go to Bayern Munich, I’m sure he will be beating the badge on their shirt just as enthusiastically as he did ours.


#2452

No I saw that and took it as a sign he’s staying.


#2453

Yeh, he’s definitely staying now imo.


#2454

Accepting a write off of one career season before walking to Chelsea, or a genuine desire to stay at Arsenal?


#2455

I bet he stays


#2456

Really wouldn’t read too much into tapping the badge tbh.


#2457

Fair enough, I did remember him having dry patches and scoring less in the second half but I suppose it wasn’t as bad as I thought. Looking at the games, there were a few games where he had dry patches and a few games that inflate those 17 goals. In 2011 he was averaging a goal a game though from what I remember.

The Agents play a lot of games nowadays. I’m sure Chelsea and any other team will be, and should be, used as leverage to squeeze the most money out of us. I just hope we pay up to keep him.


#2459

Every goal scorer pretty much has this though… a few games here where do you don’t score and then a game or two where you bang in 2 or 3. Sanchez has been awesome this season on the whole.

I didn’t even see that as tapping the badge, more like chest-thumping.


#2461

I thought the same to be honest. I suspect that he’s right handed and that means he naturally ends up beating his chest on the side that bears the club crest.


#2462

Yeah but he was looking down emphasizing the Arsenal badge as he beat his chest.


#2463

Eh, fair enough, I haven’t rewatched that moment so was only speaking off what I remembered in the moment. Didn’t realise he was specifically looking down at the badge as he did it.


#2464

Tbh it’s probably just me putting an overly positive spin on it, as I’ve been known to do.


#2465

Gone in the summer. What a player he is though.


#2466

Hit the badge and then points at himself and then the ground… He’s staying. :wink:


#2467

Transfer to Stoke confirmed


#2468

That’s not what it means in Chile.


#2469

What does it mean?


#2470

Aww ffs I was trying to set up a joke.
