    This is why Arsenal fans gets ******. We have cash reserves of more then 250 millions pounds, more than any other club. We aren't it debt. Yet despite all this we hardly spend a dime but will still give Walcott a 140k a year

    I'm really scared now. Ozil, Kosc and Sanchez might be playing there last season


    Wenger built this club, he is also at risk of tearing it down
    Ozil will definitely leave if Arsenal don't win anything significant this season. Hopefully, he comes back to my team, Los Blancos.

    Big game against Leicester, a loss here would be horrible.

    Ideally if we can get atleast 4 points against Leicester and watford and hopefully sign a striker, it will give the players and the fans a huge boast ahead of the home match against Southampton.

    Would have gone with Chambers over Holding. Hopefully we can get a cb tied up soon and Chambers can go on loan and get some game time.

    Now I know why Arsene has no money to buy any players.

    All the money has been used up on bribing the refs. Terrible, terrible performance from the ref. Arsenal should have conceded at least 1 pen and had Coq sent off.

    I dont think Mustafi is a panic buy. We have been linked to him before and I'm pretty sure he was on a shortlist of potenital CBs. No doubt injuries forced wenger's hand, but i think we would have gotten him next year as the BFG replacment.

    The infuriating thing about Mustafi though is it could have been done months ago, we could have had him ready for liverpool even yet the club haggled and lost points and even more money as a result.


    Perez is an interesting one. I guess you can argue he is a panic buy but given the circumstances I am not against it.

    Personally I think we should have gone all out on Higuain, but wenger never seemed to keen on him, likewise with Lacazette. I reckon Grizeman was who he was after and he didnt want to move. Perez gives us something at least, means we arent left with nothing like the Benzema chase last year where Arsenal had no plan B. Apparently he will be on 80 k a year. Means that we wont impede us on getting someone next year.



    The biggest fear i have though is that Kosc, Ozil and Sanchez are all running out on their contracts. If they dont resign, these is all for nothing

    trust me you can laugh

    Napoli are notorious negoicators and have no reason to sell.

    Valencia on the other hand need to sell.

    Wenger just took them for granted which means we dropped points and ended up paying more.

    If we just gave then 25 mill up font Mustafi would have played against the foxes at the very least

    Never heard of Perez but he might be a ok signing. But good enough to win the league or challenge for the big trophies. No way.
    Wenger and the board needs to go. I have backed Wenger till this season but his transfers this season has shown he is lost completely. With our stingy board Wenger is clueless trying to save money.

    Spent 30 million on Xhaxa who is a top player but did we really need another CM when we just bought Elneny in January and have a lot of options their already.

    Wenger was saying last week If I find right player that will strengthen the team I will spend 300 million if I had it. But clearly the board not giving the funds as they claim to say we have 200 million to spend every season. Wenger needs to be honest instead of coming up with stupid excuses.
    He just waits and waits in the transfer window expecting some world class player to come knocking on his door or if someone becomes available like Ozil did few years back. Look at United done their signings early and all their signings has improved their starting 11 while Arsenal improve squad numbers.
    And to back himself on his panic buy he saying today that everyone has sat on their money and we all know they will splash out now.
    Seriously who has sat on their money except Wenger. Look at United, City, Liverpool, Chelsea and nearly everyone done their big signings already.

    I really expected Wenger to sign a top striker even Lacazette would been good addition but as they couldn't get him on the cheap they didn't bother. And last minute panic buy Perez.

    I hope Arsenal and Wenger have a good season but I honestly think it be best for Arsenal to have a bad season and not finish top 4. Then the board hopefully will realise and be forced to put extra money in for transfers.

    What is annoying that it's not like Arsenal are miles away from being a proper champions league challenger or winning the league. Just making 2 world class signings especially a CF. But Wenger invests on whoever comes on the cheap.
    Look at United their 5 signings will be their main players this season. While ours are not even guaranteed to be in starting 11 yet.

    Yeah we really really needed Xhaka.

    Many reasons were at play for last seasons collapse but one that isnt talked enough about is Santi Cazorla's long injury. We missed the pivot between the back and ozil, we also missed some defence. Cazorla isnt great at it but positonally he helped coquelin a lot.

    Ramsay cant work without a DLP next to him , hence why he struggled with Coquelin. Less said about Flamini the better and wilshere is basically a luxury right now, cant be relied apon. El Neny made an instant impact for that reason. He is the ideal squad player but not good enough for the starting 11 of a top team.

    Xhaka posses the distrubion of Cazorla whilst also being 6'1 and prepared to do the dirty work in midfield.


    He was a great singing, means we wont have to see ozil running all the way back to get the ball off the centre backs anymore.

    Agree with mostly what you saying but would you rather Wenger splash that 30 million on a world class striker instead of a CM.
    Also agree Cazorla was missed hugely till we bought Elneny who made a instant impact so we got that covered. Not saying Xhaxa is not going to improve us but it's a area were we didn't need improving in and I can't see Xhaxa and Cazorla playing together in CM. Coquelin will be starting alongside one of Cazorla or Xhaxa.
    Rather had Wenger keep that 30 million and the 17 million he spending on Perez he could have signed a Lacazette for around 40 million.

    But again Xhaxa is a top player and will suit our midfield but not someone we desperately needed or a postion we desperately needed improving.

    I reckon Xhaka was bought in to ultimately play alongside Ramsey or coqeulin. Santi is most likely leaving soon, been open about wanting to retire in Spain.


    I wouldn't consider lacazatte a WC striker, though we defiantly could have used him

    Same I wouldn't consider Lacazatte world class. But he would been a good option and a good addition. Problem is world class strikers are 60 million plus which Wenger will never pay.

    Dude, Perez scored 17 goals last season in the league, which is quite good. He was playing in La Liga and not for a club that has amazing playmakers. You should be grateful you actually got someone instead of still whining. It could be much worse. The situation seems worse than it actually is because Gabriel and Per are injured, and Giroud has just got back.

    I ain't saying Perez is not good he might be a decent signing but is he someone who will make Arsenal win the league. Also why leave it so late. All teams have made their big signings before season started and had them settled into team by the 1st game started while we make signings last minute and playing catch up already.

    actually i think thats why Arsene relented and paid 35 millon for Mustafi, he knew Chelsea would be lurking with thier siutation getting more despertae.

    For a while Mustafi was dead because Arsenal didnt want to pay more then 2

    Actually his pass rate was 89% and he had the second most passes out of any PL player this weekend (79), first being Fellaini (83).

    Xhaka pass rate this weekend was 87%, so worse than Pogba's, in fact if you see their stats, they had a similar game. Just this level is average/decent for Pogba, whereas this level is Xhaka's best.

    Not really... Other than the two Manchester Clubs, loads of PL teams of left it late. Look at us, trying to get Marcos Alonso, Stefan De Vrij and Marcelo Brozovic at the last second. Sofiane Boufal just signed for the Saints for a club record, Isco may join Spurs, Slimani and Adrien Silva may join Leicester etc. It's not just Arsenal.

    Honestly Arsenal weren't ever going to get Icardi, all the rumours were just to get him a new contract, he didn't want to leave. Higuain wouldn't even be worth it, It would be ridiculous to pay 70m for his aging 28 year old self. Lacazette possibly would have been better, but Arsenal would also had to have payed 45m+.

    All things considered, it's hasn't been that bad.

    exactly, though I am now hearing Giroud will be fit, but even then he is the type of striker and chelsea will enjoying playing against, Id personalyl hope we take a punt of Perez, his pace would trouble you guys in comparision to giroud's strength/holdup

    Sanchez will destroy Aina/Ivanovic on the wing,only way I see it going well is if we swap Azpi to RB and play Alonso at LB. Though I won't be surprised if Walcott ends up in Azpi's back pocket if we don't.

    Hopefully Kante and Matic can keep the likes of Cazorla and Ozil quiet.

    Playing Sanchez upfront gives an opition in behind and also someone who will start the high press from the front. Liking the way we are pressing ATM hope we keep it up. Worried about when santi is having to mak tackles and running back to our goal, shouldn't play against the top teams in front of the back 4. Mustafi seems to have sorted the defence. Let's see if we can keep it up.

    Playing sensational football at the moment.

    The front three of Iwobi, Sanchez and Walcott is working wonders and Mustafi is Koscienly 2.0 - a total beast and they have developed the best CB partnership in the league. Meanwhile Bellerin continues his rise to the top.

    I hope that Ramsey and Giroud's return does not impact the balance of the team. I love Ramsey and think he has a great future at the club, but he should not start at the moment, and Giroud will as usual kill all the fluidity and slickness in our attack.

    The chemistry and understanding between the front 3 and Ozil is fantastic at the moment. They are at the same wavelength and the way they interchange positions is brilliant to watch.

    Good win last night although it was against a poor side. So far so good but won't get too excited as we have been here before. If we can keep our squad fit we have a decent chance of doing well, can't say for certain if we will win the premier league yet.

    Can't afford an injury to Bellerin as we don't have an adequate replacement for him. Also need the midfield to keep on scoring as we still lack an out and out world class striker. Sanchez doing a good job. Prefer him upfront for most games as our game is more fluid with a mobile striker.

    Goalless draw against Middlesbrough at the Emirates. Arsenal missed a great chance to solidify their lead at the top of the table.

    Now City just need a draw to retake the lead on goal difference.

    Arsenal always appear to be in cruise control at this point of the season. However, they always appear to stumble at the final hurdle.

    Perhaps a Simeone type manager could freshen things up after Wenger's departure and win their first Premier League title in ages.

    Bit of an early scare against Ludogorets but Arsenal have come back strongly to make it 2-2 before half-time.

    Certainly favourites for the win now, and I doubt Wenger would be pleased with any fewer than three points against lowly opposition.

    What a cool finish by Ozil. Good comeback but Arsenal need to sharpen up they have not been at their best last few weeks but still managed to get wins. Need to pick it up against Spurs. Even though Giroud is scoring I just hope Wenger don't start him and ruin the whole balance of the team which is working brilliantly with Sanchez up front.
    Also hope Ramsey stays on the bench too but have a feeling that Wenger will start playing Giroud and Ramsey in the next few weeks which will be a step back and ruin the balance. Ramsey should be behind Cazorla, Xhaxa, Coquelin in the CM position.

    I called this few weeks back that Ramsey coming back might be a bad thing for Arsenal as Wenger has a soft corner for him. He was awful last game against Spurs of the bench and now he starts and on left wing and ruin the whole balance. He has been crap so far and nearly cost a goal giving the ball away in a dangerous play.

    Lucky point for Arsenal. They were poor and Ramsey was the worst player on pitch but Wenget kept him on all match. Wenger leaves his subs so late. Arsenal were getting battered 2nd half and he just waited and waited till Man U scored and then changed things.
    And can't believe he kept Ramsey on all game. Just to accommodate Ramsey he started him on left wing and then kept him on. Wenger made poor decisions today actually he has made poor decisions in big games for a long long time. Same old same old Arsenal.

    Rubbish Rubbish Perfomance Yesterday Made United look like Barca or Bayern and the thing that makes our Perfomance even more worse is realizing united where playing with a 2nd choice back 4 , but as they say Champions pick up points even when they don't play very well ..great we did it vs Southampton Burnley Swansea United but when was the Last time we played some proper lovely football ? Because champions also play some breath taking football ! only vs Chelsea and vs Watford in 1st half we played well .. Arsenal need to start playing better football otherwise our luck will run out soon..we are lucky we are only 3 points off top as we have not been even Close to the quality of Football City Chelsea Pool and even spurs have displayed ! Still don't think this team is good enough to win PL hopefully we do the Cup double and finish in top 4 along with QF in UCL so wenger can leave on a bit high ..We really need to bring Draxler from Wolfsburg as he is keen to leave for a Big Club (and we are still a Big Club u like it or not atleast bigger than Wolfsburg)..As long as Wenger is the Manager we aint winning the League and i have accepted the fact and probably the time has come to sell Ozil (he is overrated and goes missing in most big games) and gives Sanchez a new contract and built team around him as he is our best player Ozil fan boys get over him ..one of Ozil or Sanchez will leave next season when we fail to win PL again and hopefully its Ozil ..
    Team i would like Next Season

    Cech / Oblak
    Bellerin Van Dijik (as Kosh is aging) Mustafi Ricardo Rodriguez
    Xhaka Verrati
    Alexis James (he will leave real next season as he is below Kovacic and isco in packing order) Draxler
    Aubameyang

    This is surely a world class side and we have the money and can make some profit by selling Ozil for 70m (to Bayern or Man united or Real) and Ramsey for 30-40m(to Man city maybe) Walcott for 30m (to West ham possibly)
    On bench we can have Giroud Gibbs Kosh Welbeck Ox Cazrola Coq
    Seriously strong side would Cost about
    Auba = 90m
    Verrati =70m
    Draxler =40m
    Ricardo = 30m
    Van Dijik = 40m

    About 270m and a profit pf about 120m on walcott ozil and ramsey so net spending would be about 150m which is certainly achievable for a club with money like Arsenal have in the bank i am pretty sure arsenal will spend big time once wenger is finally out

    Pathetic performance especially in the midfield areas. The due of Coquelan and Elneny never seems to work and Elnenys selection was a poor one. Ramsey looked off the pace and as a Trio in midfield all 3 were poor with pace of passing and ball retention. Add to that Ozil had his worst game ever for Arsenal.

    A very lucky point but come end of the season it may be a vital one.. we can not afford many more slip ups this month and need to start winning games again.

    17 min and 1 nil down. Arsenal have been awful so far. And as expected Ramsey starts despite being rubbish last 2 games he played for Arsenal. Being bossed in midfield. As I said last month with Ramsey being fit it will ruin the momentum we got going as Wenger loves him too much and he getting games ahead of 30 million and a much better CM Xhaxa.
    Wenger is so annoying he needs to be ruthless instead of baby sitting some of the players it has cost Arsenal over the years and continues to again.

    Two very poor goals given away against PSG and once again we will finish 2nd in group and will end up probably playing a top side who will knock us out. We have been very poor in last 3 big games and have started all 3 in pretty poor fashion, Really need to improve in next few games and get back to winning ways.
